The uncomplicated computer games of my childhood

Two computer games from the early days (1983-84ish) of home computing are both lost and unrequited to me. Hive mind, I have but two dimmish memories as clues: a character like Vitruvian Man (PC) and a map showing game tracks as two bear prints (Apple). [more inside]

A few months ago I read/watched youtube previews for a spaceship simulator type PC game, where you flew around in battleship/capital ship style warships, kind of like Battlestar Galactica scale, against other players in their own capital ships. What was this game? [more inside]

PC gaming veteran, returning to creating Rollercoasters & Civilizations

I used to play a lot of PC games, but in the past 10 years moved towards console gaming. I realise I've missed a whole era of games that only really work with a mouse and keyboard. My absolute favourites were creative, engaging, long play games, such as Rollercoaster Tycoon and Civilization. I never really played to win. I played for creative ends. The best times I had playing Rollercoaster Tycoon was in sandbox mode the only limits being my imagination. Those were the days. What (PC) games offer the equivalent of this now? [more inside]

Buy low, sell high games with travel

Can anyone recommend games with buy-low, sell-high trading systems like the one present in GTA Chinatown Wars, a DS game? My boyfriend just picked it up and he's having a lot of fun with the drug economy part of the game. Could be on PC or nintendo DS. He's tried eve and didn't really like it, and there's no travel involved in playing the AH in WoW so those don't work, but you do get bonus points if you can suggest a multiplayer game of some sort.

Helmet, maybe. Slugs, definitely.

My sister has a faint recollection of a beloved childhood PC game in which the character wore a yellow helmet and fought Far Side-esque green slugs, in a "space building." ("Maybe not the yellow helmet, but definitely green slugs.") Ring any bells?

We want shirts, but don't want to infringe on any trademarks or copyrights.

I run a website dedicated to vintage PC games (that is, games from the late 80s, early 90s). Ad revenue has been declining, and a co-admin suggested making t-shirts to sell to support the site. I have questions about what art/words we can use on the shirts. [more inside]

What PC games can be played off a disc with no installation whatsoever?

What PC games don't require any installation whatsoever? Or put another way, what PC games could I burn to CD/DVD and play on a system that I don't want to copy any files to? Linux-plus-games-on-a-DVD suggestions are also welcomed, although I would prefer games that would run on an existing XP installation.
