Default New but Old Game

Ok,

So I am at work for the next 2 days almost by myself...The office is closed for Shutdown but I am doing some testing for them to get some parts out for a customer shipment and the only people in are the maintanence guys doing an ESD floor wax on all the floors but not in the lab i am in. What I am looking for is a decent game, BUT CANNOT BE ONLINE as I do not have wireless access...on my computer...and I cant load games on the office comps... Anyway this would be for the laptop in my Sig so it cannot be too video demanding and I will probably end up playing this game for a good 15 hours in the next 2 days lol...So its got to be decent...haha

TIA

-KJ

Hmmm, all the games I own or know are pretty 3d intensive lol. There's always SPider Solitaire which is pretty fun. The Sims or any of the Sim City games are pretty good because it's time consuming and will help the time go by pretty fast.

pacman?

but yeah, the sims (I'd recommend the 1st one) would be pretty nice.
Also if you like those tycoon games then give rollercoaster tycoon 2 a try.
Maybe some like 2003 or 2004 version of nhl/madden/fifa.
Toca 2 if you like driving games.
I guess a rpg would also be good, since they can definitely kill time. Maybe neverwinter nights 1 (+ expansions if you want to, though the main game should be more than enough for 15h)

Most addictive game in the world, Copter. Very very simple, and you could not go days playing it, but it is really addictive..

It's generally online, but I did download a copy, and I just uploaded it to yousendit.
