Find me a new game! (in Contests)
Hey, CB is a great game and all, but it dosen't fill those extra time spots. I only play it aout half an hour a day to burn my BA...SO!
I am making a contest to whoever finds me the best online game will win. The game must have these features.
-MUST be Free
-If strategy, no 'rounds'...ticks/turns are ok
will be 80k CB2$$
I hear this is a good game...haven't really played too much of it to be honest. Its kind of like CB though.
Played adventure quest...and runescape, and shattered galaxy, and P.E, and P.T.....

For the games nobody else has probably encountered:
They are both really similar, kind of like a cb1 and cb2, made by the same guy. They each have ticks every 3 hours and you get 5 moves to use anytime during those 3 hours. Basically you fly some kind of ship and try to destroy the other teams. They're both simple.
I reccomend tvsgames, it was the one I played first and I think it's slightly better, the game also just started today so you'll be able to catch up to everyone.
The other one the game is starting to wind down, but still worth playing.

Anarchy Online, free for a year if you subscribe till 15. Jan.
January 7 2005 8:33 PM EST
As the previous poster said, Anarchy Online free campaign
with a "free subscription" for the base AO, but more importantly the other "free" game, namely Project Entropia
, which is a (as their "infomercials" advertise) one of the few (maybe only) "massive virtual universe with a real cash economy".

graphic, sort of like a newb EverQuest
January 7 2005 8:56 PM EST
I used to play tvsgames, the violet sector, I highly recommend it, I was first leader to ever win with the Borax :)
Tried out those...didn't seem all that fun too me...I have also played project entropia and kings of chaos ;)
Try this one. www.sgalaxy.com i bet you get addicted.
January 7 2005 9:11 PM EST
Surprised nobody suggested this. It does have graphics, it is free, but there's not very much strategy - but it is mmo. You pick one of six classes, there are two pair of each a warrior, wizard and thief. I have a Disco Bandit, and he's awesome.
lol, i already play Kingdom of Loathing, and its a nice game :)....but doomlayer and you other guys...I said up top some of thew games I have played before, including Shattered Galaxy and Project Entropia.

No graphics but It is the best game out there, has entertained me for years. It is a MUD and in my opinion the best one in existance.

BUTTON MEN! Kind of hard to pick up at first, but I got it figured out in about 12 hours. Try it.
January 7 2005 10:22 PM EST
go there its neato i guess... and i can get you a super nice start for some cb2k :-p
January 8 2005 3:18 PM EST
have you tried Star Wars Combine?....it's a good strategy/MMO set in the Star Wars Universe.....the gameplay, I find, is great, as well as the amount of graphics in the game...not bad considering it's a free online game, such as this one....
January 8 2005 3:35 PM EST
Well it appears that myth has joined the violet sector again and is in my legion :)
January 8 2005 4:09 PM EST
Project Entropia isn't free if you want to enjoy yourself.... It's really nearly impossible to earn any money without spending a lot. everything is a cash sink in that game, and no one wants to come off any money, because it's based on a real world economy....
I've been playing Second Life lately... there's a 7 day free trial, but then it's a one time charge of $9.95. The neat thing about it, is that it's a big, open world where the users create the content. There are tools, in game, to create things in 3D, and then add scripting to them. And people have taken that and made amusement parks, guns, rockets, rocket powered surfboards, clothes, and just about everything else you can possible imagine. There are also a couple of sites (Gaming Open Market is one) that support the buying and selling of ingame money for real USD, and you can add to your account via PayPal if you'd like. It's quite good, and appeals to the coder and the 3D person in me. It's all 3D, like a big MMORPG, but more open.... of course, there's an MMORPG within the game, and various other things as well. Check out the website... It had me intrigued, and I signed on for a 3 month premium membership (about $20) and I'm quite pleased with all of it.
GUN BOUND..........I FORGOT about gun bound....This one will have to win
This game had me for at least a year
Im guessing i have to click HTML for that to work...lol
just go here... http://gunbound.net/

January 8 2005 5:44 PM EST
So, when does this contest end? How many games from google do you need to see posted here?
January 8 2005 6:12 PM EST
Kingdom of loathing. It's kind of like what CB would be if all of the FORS were implemented, only slightly less retarded, more popular, and very laggy.
It might run nicer now than it did last time I played it.
yeah...I now have tried every single game you guys have posted....and still have not found a winner. Looks like im gonna have to go out and buy a game :(
The contest is now over.
Sorry guys, but thanks for trying :P
Free of charge. Fun game i play is myself

January 10 2005 7:42 PM EST
www.Runescape.com, old game, many updates often, 3d graphics, and its just plain cool
Guild Wars is a new game coming out, and its supposedly a massively multiplayer game, it does cost money to buy it, but it doesn't have a monthly fee like EQ or WoW!
yes but uogateway is alot better and its free its like a 3d version of carnage blender
January 10 2005 9:40 PM EST
Free massive multiplayer online game. Nice graphics and quite small (60meg).
January 10 2005 10:52 PM EST
Knight Online: http://www.knightonlineworld.com/
You said there WOULD be a prize for the best game...not for everyone to give you ideas and then say none of them were good and not winners....there are about 30 games at least....i just figured you made it sound like there would be a winner no matter what...lol.
Not tryin to be mean or anything, i just dont think its fair to whoever might have won....=P
http://www.maidmarian.com/ (try Sherwood)
uogateway is still better free mmorpg millions of people thousands of spells millions of weapons and armor. http://www.uogateway.com
January 11 2005 2:41 AM EST
Hmmm. You should pick the best, free, mmo, graphical, strategy game offered to you in this post as a winner.
January 11 2005 3:04 AM EST
That would be RYL.
January 11 2005 3:24 AM EST
www.goosegames.com offers a game called manager league. It's a soccer team managment game that runs too darn slow.
www.popcapgames.com offers lots of VERY cool java games, probably not what your looking for, but still they are sweet sweet free games.
www.bootleggers.us is a game about being a mobster in the 20's, I think it's cool.
www.imperialconflict.com is tick based, team based space combat and kingdom managment, I spent 3 years playing it, it was worth it, but i had to get away.
www.ferion.com one of the best games I've ever played, free to play so far through the tech tree, after that it's 3.00 a round or 30 for life.
www.coldfirestudios.com/space another space combat game, based loosely off the computer game "Spaceward 'Ho!" for Mac.
www.roidracer.com , more space combat, might be down.
And I think that's it, if I think of anymore I'll let you know.
January 11 2005 3:42 AM EST
Um, wait, hang on. I just noticed he ended this. Sorry dude, but you can't not pick a winner because they all suck. You said BEST online game. One of them HAS to win.
January 11 2005 4:25 AM EST
If you're still checking out every single game that was listed above you might be weary of yet another suggestion- they're all the same and require you to follow a script the game designer made and sooner or later you might outgrow gaming altogether.
Progressquest is a nice way to reflect on all that in a humorous way.
If you agree send me the money :)
hey, i know him in real life :) in case you guys are wondering the game he found is Dark Eden, (www.darkeden.com) its a LOT like runescape, but has some big differences :)
January 11 2005 7:08 AM EST
sounds like he owes some money then ;)
Velvet Negative, January 7 2005 9:33 PM EST
Dark Eden :)
Thank you real life friend.
Hey, no lie! What's up with calling my offering a loser and then playing it and welching on the contest? Boo. Swindling's a nasty practice; if you don't plan on following through, you should just ask a straight out question next time.
Sheesh. It's 'cause I'm a girl, isn't it? :(
January 11 2005 8:04 AM EST
I think it's cuz your an attractive girl, he assumed you had no brains.
Isn't that going back on a deal? A resetable offense?
January 11 2005 8:25 AM EST
Not a reset, but a fine of the 80k would be in order I think, if not a little more for being dumb
January 11 2005 8:53 AM EST
Just wait until San gets back online.
January 11 2005 6:57 PM EST
No one swindles Velvet Negative! Where's me knee-capping shillelagh?
January 11 2005 8:03 PM EST
I'll give this another day. Based on the fact that the guidelines of the rules for the contest were met and a friend says that Sand actually now plays a game suggested here it would seem that the contest has been won. I've sent a chatmail to Sand.
awwww come on guys...did you really think I wouldnt give out the cash? If i didn't someone could just love a game, but say they didn't like it.
And the winner is...Velvet Negative!
with Dark Eden...lol, sorry for any trouble I caused but I watched Punked...and it seemed like a fun thing to do. And I really don't care if i get flamed because iI dont really play anyways.
80k WILL be sent to Velvet
Transferring permanently the following items to Velvet Negative (Arachne):
Transfer fee: $400
