Question What game do u always fall back on?
I, just as everyone else I would assume, at one point or another, find myself getting bored with the current games that I am playing and find myself falling back to older games that kept me occupied.

If ya had to say there is that one specific game that you always find yourself falling back on, what would it be?

Personally, I find myself falling back on 2... Starcraft and GTA (any of them will do)

Lets hear your fallback games!

My fall back game is really random, every now and then I just have an urge to play SimCity 4. I know, it's pretty stupid (me wanting to play it, not the actual game). lol

My current fallbacks in the FPS genre are Call of Duty 4 and Insurgency Mod (Half-Life 2 Mod). Those games are great if I've got 20 mins and need to get some quick games in and can't be as engaged as you need to be in Left4Dead.

Left4Dead, though, is something I come back to fairly often and I'm trying to play more.

The original Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri (no expansion). Some of the best flavor text/audio in any game, ever.

A bit of Commander Keen is always fun in my book.

I fallback on GTA:IV quite often. I never got around to beating it (although I got really far on my sister's 360 and then just never did the main questline on my own). It's a game that I can play for 20 minutes and feel highly satisfied or stress relieved. When its available to me Rock Band also is similar for me, but my apartment doesn't have space for yet MORE guitars and instruments.

My fallback game needs to have massive replayability, fun little things to do, and nothing too serious about it.
