Deep but lightweight PC games?
September 8, 2006 8:25 AM Subscribe
I want to install at least 6-12 good games into a 100-150MB space on my six-year-old laptop (WinXP). Besides the limited disk space, other restrictions are: no accelerated graphics and a non-working CD drive. What are the best games you can think of that would fit?

Either free or payware are fine, in all genres. "Lightweight" is a relative term -- Nethack and some interactive fiction come to mind, but I'm also considering Civ II (which I hope can be installed over a network or from a USB key).
Space is obviously at a premium, but if you have a favorite game that weighs in at a bloated 100 megabytes, let me know! The best mix may be one or two larger games and several small ones.
