Hey guys, i was wondering what games there are that are easy to play on a laptop touchpad (havent got around to getting a mouse yet)

Good games would be appreciated too. No bad ones.

Sadly there is no game that can be played properly on a laptop touchpad. Get a mouse soon dude.

i remember the GTA games were pretty easy to play with a touch pad.

Also racing games don't really require a mouse at all during game as long as you can stand using buttons and maybe try some action RPG's like Torchlight, Titan Quest or Diablo 2 or something.... they wouldn't be that bad with a touch pad.

Get a mouse, a cheap one is cheaper then your average game, and it will make the controls a lot better. As for your question - Civilization IV.

yea i got Civ 4 a while ago and that works great, for obvious reasons.

any other suggestions? even games that would be only just manageable with a touchpad

i need the money to buy PS3 games coming out soon, and i fear that even the purchase of a cheap mouse will set me back enough to stop me getting a game.

The original Fallouts would probably work well as they don't require any fast mouse movement. But buy a mouse.

go get some plants vs zombies, works wonders with touch devices. i played it with my art tablet and i can say this, it beats the living crap out of a mouse.

Get a mouse, trust me I tried to use a touchpad for a week and I ended up getting a mouse because there was no way you could play around 4 different genres and everything else I could have played would have played much better had I had a mouse.

Well I dunno, I was playing StaCraft Multiplayer with laptop touchpad and I was still winning :D But yeah, the GTAs are fine too.
