I'm too busy and cheap to play many cutting edge PC games. But we also have and play a lot of 'analog' games at home. And I recently discovered a great resource to offset my cheapness - my local library has a decent selection of games, and a great online system for requesting that they send the next available copy to my local branch.
I continue to play a lot of Colossus on my computer. It's a computerized version of Avalon Hill's box game Titan. Thanks to ebay, I have the analog version too, but haven't tried it with the family yet. Another retrogame I was playing for a while is Scorch2000. The old Scorched Earth game was one of the first pieces of shareware I registered back in the early 90s.
