    Hello everyone here are some games that will keep you entertained on those slow trading days.
    We could all do with some break watching those stocks going up and down.
    btw these games require a decent video graphics card 64mb or higher and a pc thats less than 5yrs old minimum.

    All the games links are Demo only not full versions. Enjoy...

    Ballance ( this one is my favourite )

    Demo download link size: 20.6mb http://www.gamershell.com/download_5937.shtml

    Ballance is a level-based puzzle game. The player has to move a ball through a hovering maze of paths and rails.
    When moving, the player will face many mechanical obstacles like seesaws, suspension bridges, pendulums etc. to overcome.
    It is the aim of the game to reach to the end of each level without dropping the ball.
    Ballance takes its special appeal from the physically realistic simulation of its elements.
    A good feeling of the ball's inertia and an understanding of simple mechanical processes will enable the player to succeed.

    Airfix Dogfighter is a fun, simple, action-based flight simulator with model airplanes. The scene is a large house where
    all of the family has gone away except for you. You take the role of a prank-loving, imaginative, Home Alone kind of kid,
    roaming around with your self-made airplane and pretending to be a fighter pilot in World War II. As the reality changes
    into true scenarios, the house and its interior come alive, transforming into inspiring battlegrounds and action-packed
    missions such as dogfights, bomb raids, and furious multiplayer games.

    aircraft of the WWII Pacific Theater. Playable planes include Japan's Mitsubishi A6M Zero, the D3A1 Aichi Val and the B5N
    Nakajima Kate as well as America's Chance Vought F4U Corsair, the Douglas SBD Dauntless and the Grumman TBM Avenger.

    Sniper Elite

    One of the best Sniper Games
    I have been playing with these for a while now, you can actually shoot a target on the leg and watch others try and help the indured and turn one target into 3 or 4.

    One of the main features of the game is the option of realistic ballistics, involving factors such as bullet drop, wind strength, and breathing when attempting a shot. Sniping gameplay is in first person scope view, whereas movement and use of all other weapons is in third person view. When the player makes an extreme sniper shot, the view follows the path of the bullet in slow motion, while the camera rotates around the bullet. The game is unlike most other first or third person shooters in that most of the gameplay involves stealth and patience, punctuated by a sniper. To reinforce the 'stealth' aspect, there is a camouflage index measured in percentage that displays the visibility of the protagonist.

    Plenty of games here and brainpower need not be high but aptitude is a must.

    Fallout 3

    Have been playing this game for over a few weeks now managing to sneak a few hours every night, I will have to say one best games I have played ever.

    Not my own exaggeration this game won game of the year. Telling you more about it would be spoiling the game itself, basically set in a post apocalyptic year 2277, but what really appealed to me is the mixture of the 1940's 50's theme mixed with a touch of futuristic technology.

    Warning this game take upwards of up to 150 hours to complete with over 200+ variations of an ending not that I would like the adventure to end. Also additional down loadable content from the official site using windows live.

    by the way get the PC version as endless mods are available. check out the minimum requirements before getting the game had to upgrade my video card well worth it though.

    Trailer - with Ron Perlman as the narrator.

    I believe effort to be a finite resource. Something to be used only when there are no other options available.
