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]

Pow! Freowwww! Games to test out my new rig with?

I got a new PC a few months ago. I like to think that it's a good build, but I never play any games on it anyway besides minecraft because I already had an Xbox and there's nothing coming out until christmas. What are some games/demos I can get (for free) that I can try on it to really get a sense of how good of a gaming rig it is - and if I should start buying PC games, or stick to xbox games?

What can I do with a large quantity of CD-ROMs?

I have over 1,000 copies of several PC videogame CD-ROMs. The games are widely distributed/available, so the discs probably don't have any value to gamers. What can I do with them beside give them away? Creative or crafty ideas welcome. Also, not against making a little money if it's possible. [more inside]
