Advice please,  I am looking for non violent pc games.   Such as, Dreamfall, The Longest Journey, Ankh, Secret Files:Tunguska, Myst series.  I am getting desperate because I am almost finished with the game I'm playing now.  Any suggestions??? Thanks

The Civilization games are definitely tons of fun and non-violent (well, I suppose you CAN start wars if you'd like). Sim City 4

I would recommend  a point and click game called Curse of monkey Island or Broken Sword (Although it contains some violence). They are relatively old but as a result cheap but are still great puzzle/adventure games. You could also try the movies where you run your own movie studio and make you own movies.

there are hundred and hundreds of non-violent games out there

if you want literally no violence, check out tycoon games such as the sims 2, sim city 3000 or rollercoaster tycoon - these are generally games where you build and manage rather than destroy - build a city, build a house and its inhabitants, build a theme park, and so forth - there's also a fun little game called ghost master, where you have to use various supernatural buddies of yours, each with specific abilities, to scare the inhabitants out of a house - fun game

just about every driving game ever made should be okay (but avoid road rash!!!), or sports games (avoid speedball 2!!!)

just about every point n click adventure game is okay - the monkey island games, grim fandango and the broken sword games are fine examples (and this is clearly a genre you enjoy, so check these out for sure)

if you're okay with violent context, but no particular violence itself - then check out civilization 4 - it's a turn based game where you build empires and manage your economic and tecnhological (and military) growth, war is a factor - but it's hard to call it violent - it could be compared with chess (and is a great, great game - check out the demo)

there's also all the great (non-violent-ish) roleplaying games like baldur's gate 1 and 2 and planescape torment and neverwinter nights - while combat features heavily in each, it's again hard to call it violent, you get worse in cartoons for kids

most simulators like flight simulator is usually good, sports games (EA brand has a good number of these) would probably fit under their too but essentially those will be slightly older games as they tend not to do well in a PC market (not to say their not good games with some enjoyment in them). If your also reallly..really i need of some non-violent games u could always ROM and Emulator games from old game consoles like snes, gba, N64, and a host of others.

Thief 3: Deadly Shadows (Some violence though) It´s an action stealth game.

It sounds like you are looking for an RPG. For non-rpg, Virtual Skipper 3 or 4 (yacht racing) are a lot of fun in single player or multi.

1. All of the "Tycoon" games (Rollercoaster Tycoon, Zoo Tycoon etc.)

2. The Sims 1 or 2.

3. Sims City

Some people need to stop being so immature and honestly answer the original poster's question. It's not that hard. If you're too ignorant to do so, do not reply to the thread--simple as that.
