    Just got msn messenger working for the first time and like the chess game on there, its easy, instant and good for a laugh. my freind isnt into counterstrike and the like, but is interested in any other games that are quick and fun...any suggestions?

    ive been thinking about 1v1 fighting games, strategy games or shoot em ups. Oh and it must be cheap or even better, free.


    ps: I hate flash games.

    Theres some random Tank games. You control a tank on an island, choose height and such of trajectory then fire, blowing up the other tanks on the map.

    AMAZINGLY fun, free game on pcgamer dvd hooked me to it for a week solid online.

    Much like worms, ish, but you buy ammo/guns after each round, can buy some guns like doomsday nukes to tiddly little pea shooters.

    :D

    The person im suggesting the game for is a console gamer and has been playing games over 20 years, hes just no good at fps. Are there any coop games out there you can play online where you go through a story/levels?

    1v1?
    Strategy?

    ... StarCraft! Games last about 15-20 minutes and it is by far the best 1v1 game out there.
