    Oblivion is one of the best pc games that teenagers like

  5. DaDan profile image50
    DaDanposted 8 years ago

    Well obviously no teen is a like, which makes it hard to decide. Girl and boy gamers both have different interests in genres, so it's very difficult to pinpoint you one game, but here are games I would recommend.

    Free games- Runescape, Mapleleaf...and then any game from addictinggames.com


    Paid games- Spore (Highly recommended), Gears of War (PC), World of Warcraft, Counter-Strike (or any game off of Steam).

    Oh, and check out commonsensemedia.org if you want to read about it's ratings and if its appropriate or not!

    dcsantos7posted 8 years ago

    It depends on what type of games a teenager like. I would suggest asking the person if they like First-Person Shooters, Racing, MMORPG's, and then build a list of game on their genre of interest.

    Plants vs Zombies, Desktop Tower Defense, check my hub on Top Ten Flash Games.

    So a pc game for a teen would be call of duty 4

  9. Mario Brothers profile image34
    Mario Brothersposted 8 years ago

    Personally I like Rpg and Strategy games....... THere are many xbox 360 and ps2 games playable in computer as well. Just that you need a better 3d card and processor in it....

  10. Alastore001 profile image61
    Alastore001posted 8 years ago

    Well, as many people have stated before myself it really comes down to what the person likes. If you prefer a more fantasy, or rpg style, or maybe you like shooting games.

    Either way here's a few recommendations.

    RPG/Fantasy:

    Runescape (simple and free)
    World of warcraft
    Aion (Released in September)
    Silk Road Online (Free)
    Knight online (Free)
    Oblivion (Not multiplayer, but a GREAT game)

    Shooting:
    Counterstrike
    Half-life (1 or 2.. usually comes with counterstrike anyways)
    Call of duty 4
    Team Fortress 2
    Left 4 dead.
    Crysis.

    There's a whole world of games out there, most of the games i recommended are meant for online play.

    World of warcraft is the best game EVER in all time

  12. wymyczak66 profile image92
    wymyczak66posted 8 years ago

    easily the sims. It's not only addicting, but there was something about watching my sims get up fully rested at 4 AM and then clean their bathtub that made me suddenly want to be a little more productive...

    My son loves "Maple Story" which he just downloaded from the web. My nephews who a older in their teens have been playing it for years. It gives you the option to purchase NEXON cash at certain stores to "buy stuff" on the game if you want too.

  14. julie20201 profile image77
    julie20201posted 8 years ago

    World of Warcraft is great but highly addictive, so be prepared for time consumption.

    Neverwinter Nights and Neverwinter Nights 2 are also great games... be careful with NWN 2 though, make sure your computer has the capacity to run the game graphics. I had to buy a RAM card to make it work properly.

    Knights of the Old Republic is Star Wars RPG with a great story line.

    The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - either will take up hours and hours but are fun and typical RPG leveling mania.

  15. pearlgearl profile image80
    pearlgearlposted 8 years ago

    WOW is not the best game ever... though it took me 196 days of the last 2 years of my life to come to that conclusion, but hey if your teen has that kind of time on his or her hands go for it. If not then try webkinz for a preteen to teen girl or perhaps Star Wars the force unleashed for a boy

  16. confidence coach profile image47
    confidence coachposted 8 years ago

    World of Warcraft if you don't mind paying a monthly fee is good.  If you feeling cheap you can buy the classic strategy game called starcraft.

    Runescape .com is a teen game, it is free for along time with the option of becoming a member for more benefits the game has. this game also has the ability to create some fun with talking or trading and also helping others/friends and family out for new items.

    Go with mmorpg. They get to socialise with the world and learn a thing or two about human relationships.

    Some recommended titles:
    Aion Online, Eve Online, Champions Online

    A REALLY NEAT GAME IS CALLED STAND-O-FOOD. IT'S ABOUT MAKING BURGERS AND KEEPING CUSOTMERS HAPPY.

    Browser Games! You don´t need to download, and you can play from other computers with internet. You have some good games and MMORPG games to play in you browser too, you can find some at http://www.freebrowsergamer.com

    Obviously depends a lot on the person and their preferences, but in general some fun computer games are:
    World of Warcraft
    Oblivion
    Warhammer Online
    Morrowind

    I would also recommend the xbox360, (games like Call of Duty: 4/Modern Warfare/Modern Warfare 2, Oblivion, Fallout3, Gears of War, etc) MMO's are a lot more addicting than Xbox360 Live games...at least in my opinion.

    Grand theft auto 4. awesome
    The Sims is a fun, addictive game that i would recommend.
    Any Elder Schrolls game, again very addictive.
    There are so many games out there, maybe rent a few first, or buy some older, cheaper versions of the games, or maybe buy games pre owned so they're cheaper. But at the end of the day if you dont like a game, just take it back.

    Definintly World of Warcraft it's a great first MMORPG and guides for it can be found on this website- www.electrotips.com

    Also the Call of Duty franchise is very good for teenagers who prefer First Person shooters to RPG's.

    If StarCraft 2 hasn't been listed as an answer here then I would like to be the first to add it.  SC2 is by far the best PC game of all time.

    MINECRAFT!! It's a huge sandbox game where you can literally create anything that you want! It's still in the Beta stages, but it's really fun.
    If you know some computer techies, they can set up a server and you will be able to give yourself free stuff.

    If you wanted to know: Basically, you start out with a world (randomly created) with big blocks of sand, dirt, coal, water, wood, etc. You get to mine each block and when you do, you can collect them and replace them in other places to make different things. There really is no point or objective to the game other than freedom to create whatever the heck you want. It's really fun for me. I imagine it would be fun for any dude interested in Construction or engineering.

    Try it out, it's fun!

    I know it's been a while, but in case people are still looking for answers to this question that I can recommend a browser based game called Virtual Nations which requires no software to be installed, you can interact with other players and take the game whichever way you want to.

    It can be found here - https://www.vnations.net/
    Hope this helps :-)
