Other games?

So what do you guys play when not fooling around with Angband?

Me? I'm fond of Strange Adventures in Infinite Space, and particularly the sequel, Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space, both of which are almost Roguelikes anyhow. I'm fond of a game of Civ, also. In general, the more open-ended and replayable the game is, the better. I probably wasted a fair portion of my teenage years on Elite.


Any suggestions of what's decent out there?

I like the Space Empires series...
http://spaceempires5.com/
The fifth one is pretty buggy but when you buy it at Gamestop you get the fourth one included with it so you can grab both and take your pick which you like better... there are a ton of mods and custom ships out there for SE4, and there's a lively multiplayer server (for 4 and 5) at http://seiv.pbw.cc so you can get into online Star Trek vs. Star Wars grudge matches if you so desire

I'm stuck at Europa Universalis III at the moment. From the open source, I played a fair share of OpenTTD recently.

God of war II just arrived...

And S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Day of Defeat, HL2 when they get around to releasing the next episode. Oblivion (a little, but its too similar to Angband to enjoy).

I tend to find I can't play anything RPG related, as it makes me want to code again...

I played that, but it kinda sucks. I heard they were making a patch with a cheat mode for infinite gold, I might give it another go at that point

I had a good game or two of Colonization http://www.freecol.org/. I missed the trade routes but they should be implemented during the next versions.

Have you tried Oolite yet? http://oolite.aegidian.org/
