    Most of us have a lot of games on our rigs that come and go.
    But there seems to always be a "goto" game that when we get sick of playing everything else, we go back to for relaxation and a break from the current games.

    For me it's Defense Grid : The Awakening. A TD game that I find easy on the brain, has great replayability and just gives me a break from the others for awhile.

    What is your "goto" game or games?

    At this period my GoTo game is Fallout 3.

    When I have nothing to play at all I go back to The Sims 3.

    Hmm, would probably have to be TF2 since it always makes me laugh :)

    Portal and Portal 2 are not bad for a getaway, but do not have the variety of replayability as a good tower defense game.

    I always have a Stalker installed at any given time. I also never get tired of playing Ace Combat 5.

    I play a lot of UT2004 as well. Still a damn fun game, and still several servers online running. :toast:

    Yep, these are great to fall back on. Fun and pretty much no thinking involved. :laugh:

    Pretty interesting inputs guys and gals.
    Some of you seem to gravitate back to slower paced, strategy type games while some of you resort to what I would consider high-stress shooters.

    I guess relaxation is pretty darn subjective. :D

    I don't know where I would be without TT. Plus the days i've dumped into that game and I still haven't ever got the perfect score.
