Wings of Prey - PC
A historical World War 2 flight sim, "Wings of Prey" tries to appeal to both casual and hardcore players by including both "arcade" and "simulator" elements.
Tropico 3 - PC
Tropico 3 is a city management simulator with a twist - the "city" in question is a volatile Banana Republic island, and the player takes the role of a newly-elected "El Presidente".
Sniper : Ghost Warrior
A first-person shooter from City Interactive S.A., "Sniper: Ghost Warrior" isn't quite realistic, but does offer some interesting scenarios in contrast to the usual shoot-em-up first person shooter.
Silent Hunter 5
A hardcore submarine simulator with strict attention to realism, "Silent Hunter 5" presents a treat for dedicated historians and submarine fans, but an experience that may be overwhelming to most gamers.
Mah Jong Medley
One of the free games that came with my HP / Windows 7 system was Mah Jong Medley. This game provides four different styles of tile fun, with a variety of layouts and tile sets as well.
Age of Empires II - The Age of Kings
Most games are hot when they release and then quickly become old and dated. Age of Empires II - The Age of Kings stands the test of time. This is a game that is fun even years after its release.
A fun, cheap Indie game inspired loosely on games like Minecraft and Dwarf Fortress, and more directly by the boardgame Dwarven Dig, "Delve Deeper" is a fun game that's easy to pick up and quick to learn for 1-4 players.
Reign : Conflict of Nations
A large-scale strategy game akin to the Total War series or Paradox Interactive's games, "Reign: Conflict of Nations" presents some beautiful design but is ultimately lacking in both substance and playability.
Warhammer Mark of Chaos
While Games Workshop's "Warhammer 40k" has seen successful transitions to video games in the form of games like Dawn of War, "Warhammer Fantasy" has had less luck. Case in point: "Mark of Chaos", a real-time-tactics game that attempts to emulate the tabletop wargame with limited success.
Europa Universalis Rome
A historical country-management game set in the Ancient era, EU: Rome seems interesting and in-depth at first glance but falls short in terms of production and design.
