    I am curious which games people like to play on their tablet PCs!

    Please tell us the game, your tablet, and how the Tablet feature effects your game!

    Right off the bat, my old TC1000 is GREAT for playing Age of Empires II, as well as the other games running that same engine, such as Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds.

    What makes it so fun? I can gather troops quickly, tap away at the visual command buttons, and jump around the map like a god with a tap of the mini-map. It's just so fun!

    My tx2500 is due at my door in 2 weeks, and I look forward to seeing which other games are benefitted by the Active or even Passive digitizers!

    Anyone else know some good games?

    EDIT: I am also curious if LIGHT GUN games are fun on tablets :)

    Most so called "casual" games are wonderful on a tablet. Especially games like Diner Dash, where speed and accuracy are very important later in the game. Also, there is a game modeled after a nintendo DS game (Elite Beat Agents) made specifically with screen input in mind. You can find it at http://osu.ppy.sh/

    I would think most wii pointer-style games would be pretty fun, like Strong Bad's Cool Game For Attractive People. I can't wait to play it on the tablet!

    The games that will probably not work are the ones with crosshairs stuck in the middle, like any First Person Shooter.

    Any other games benefitted by Tablet?

    This is the 3rd time (I believe) this same question has been done in about the last 6 months. Here is a link to one of them.

    I would pick crayon physics, if they would get around to fixing it.

    For now though I just enjoy Freecell since I can drag the cards with the pen.

    I also like inkball and what ever I answered before in the previous times this question was asked.:D

    Oops! I had searched the forums, and couldn't easily find anything that wasn't 18 months old or only about inking games.

    I'm curious about -real- games ;)

    Anyone know of a good tablet enhanced version of sudoku other than the one that came from MS. I have it but it seems to hog resources after its been open for awhile.

    You didn't specify "real games" - you mean like COD or WOW or what?

    There is a thread on that too, trust me.:D Doesn't mean you can't bring it up again, I don't think this is nerdy enough site where you get jumped on to death because you did not search.

    I was merely pointing out that there were threads on the subject in case you wanted that info too.

    Well, I just want to know which NORMAL *coughmainstream* games are playable in Tablet Mode... SLATE-style.

    RTS games are, especially non-3d ones.

    Wii-pointer games are.

    Aaaand pointer-controlled shooter games... always fun...

    OH! OH! OH!

    TIME CRISIS!!!! CAN YOU PLAY TIME CRISIS GAMES ON A TABLET?!?!?! :)

    Sorry, hyper and excited :p
