    Have Computer, Want Play Game

    The last time I played on a computer (beside Solitaire) it was DOOM in the early nineties. Now that I've more time on my hand I would like to play again but as you may realize I'm a total novice. What game would you recommend ? Is GTA ok ? Or to complicated for a beginner ?
    I've only a computer with mouse and keyboard, is there any other accessories I should consider buying ?
    The things we regret most is the things we didn't do

    I think you will need to say what graphics card you have got.
    A lot of the recent games need high spec graphics to run properly.

    World Of Tanks is a good online game and it's free. The only problem with it is that if you download the game in N. America, you can only play on N. American servers. Now that I'm back in Thailand, if I download the one to play on Asian servers, I lose all my achievements and have to start from scratch again.

    Absolutely no idea but I don't think there is anything high spec in the computer I have.

    Maybe before investing in anything high tech, I should train with some basic games running on basic computers ....

    In most shopping mall (in Bangkok at least) they usually have in the IT floor a shop where they can install all the apps you want for a small nominal fee. You chose the app you want, they download and install them in your iPad, or your phone. Cheap and easy.

    She's well addicted to Candy Crush, but she wants a bunch of stuff for the kid and the freebie versions are mainly hopeless.
