    Wanted; good game to play on a laptop!

    Im off to my girlfriend's for a couple of weeks & could do with a few games to play on my Studio 17 (i love it! ). It has an ATI HD3650 so graphics wiseisnt an issue but the lack of a proper mouse/my FPS setup ( i use the mouse1/delete/end/page down instead of the WASD). Iv got the Sims on there (for her) and some sim city for me, but i was wondering if im missing out on anything else?

    Iv got TF2/L4D etc for when i get desperate, but in the meantime id like a few games i can pick up & put down again depending on what's going on around me!

    Any recommendations? cheers guys

    Peggle, Audiosurf if you have a lot of music on there

    I end up playing that sort of thing when my girlfriend's doing something, and they're good 'girl-friendly' games too should she want to join in.

    Re: Wanted; good game to play on a laptop!

    thanks for the suggestions. This laptop can run left 4 dead, team fortress 2 etc without any worries so graphics arnt an issue.

    Iv tried civ4 before and wasnt hugely keen on it, same for the RPG style games. I should have added i put plants vs zombies on it last week and i love the game to bits, just such a fun game in a very basic way.Ill look into the Tycoon games, certainly remember finding the rollercoaster tycoons games to be a lot of fun!

    thanks a lot guys

    The very two I was going to suggest, they are pretty cheap and a lot of fun can be had.
