Post by Rayman9930 »

Have you ever heard of Popcap games? Well, if you have, we can all talk about our favorite games like Bejeweled, Bookworm, Peggle, or Insaniquarium! If you haven't heard of Popcap before here is a link to their website.

http://www.popcap.com/allgames.php

My favorite Popcap games are Peggle Nights, Insaniquarium, Bejeweled Twist, and Bookworm Adventure (Vol. 1 and 2).
What are your favorite games and favorite features about them?

I've heard of that game on... what is it Facebook? I didn't include that because I didn't know it existed. Sorry.

If I was to play a time-waster I'd rather do Solitaire tbh.

Bejeweled is quite nice though.

I used to play quite a few Popcap games when I was younger. I think I've played most of the ones on the list, but my favorite ones definitely are the Bejeweled ones, the environments are nice and the music is pretty calming. Plus I like these kinds of match-3 games.

PopCap Games is a ruined company now. Ever since stupid EA bought PopCap, they started firing workers, ruining their games such as Plants vs Zombies and making it's sequel pay to win. I miss the days before their games became filled with EA's disgustingness.

I see that most of the consensus here like Bejeweled games, nice! :D
I really like Bejeweled 2 the best out of all the Bejeweled games since it's the one I've played the longest out of the 3. The space and planet-like environments were pretty cool and the music was pretty relaxing for me. I always was into these kinds of puzzle/match 3 games.

Other games I liked playing from this company were Pizza Frenzy, Bonnie's Bookstore, Bookworm Adventures, and Dynomite, and actually the latter's what got me started on these games from playing it in my friend's house.

Bejewled 2 is the only Bejewled game I played, I had it on an arcade disc an Xbox 360 years ago. Candy Crush is literally just a copy of Bejewled.

I've also played Peggle 2 and that Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare game.

But the difference is Popcap is real where Sanic is just some meme from 2010 :mrgreen:

I wouldn't call them the most fun games in the world, but you'd play them to pass the time if you were bored, just like I used to play solitaire on my PC until I discovered the Pinball game Windows XP had. I used to play that a lot :P

Yeah I agree with that, they're not the kind of games that I'd spend days or weeks playing, but I would usually play them whenever I didn't have my DS/3DS/Wii/etc. on me and they usually were enough to keep me busy. The bejeweled games were definitely the ones that were the most fun for me.

So you did that too! :D
I remember back then I turned on a desktop in a computer store when my dad and I were getting our first new desktop and I saw "Pinball" installed inside it so I opened it and played it while nobody was looking. Iirc the one I played had this space-like vibe or something like that, but it was helluva lot of fun! Before that I usually checked out Hearts, Freecell, Solitaire, Minesweeper, and I thought those were pretty neat as well.

3D Pinball Space Cadet. It was the only pinball game that I ever seen with Windows so it couldn't have been anything else.

As for Popcap, I have played Peggle 2 on Xbox One a few times last year when I was bored too.

Ah the memories, man, memories! I used to play that a lot back when we had XP! I loved it along with asking the little dog in the control panel questions just for fun. :mrgreen:

Nostalgia is hitting hard, thanks man... :nostalgic:

I once tried Peggle on my tablet and Bejeweled on our old Nokia cell phone (which is not hours now tho, it's now my grandmother's) though I didn't really like them, they are pretty boring imo and they only kept me playing for like 5 minutes before I stopped playing them forever.
