It's a strange request, I know... but I want a list of good 3D PC games that are preferably rated E or T (and if they are T, I don't want excessive blood and violence)
I am totally turned off by video game violence, but I love video games. For example, I like games like the Myst series and Portal as well as N64 and PS1 emulation.
Is there anything else worth my time?

Sim City 4 is a little dated, but excellent if you like strategy/simulation. The Sims and their many, many expanions are great. There's a downloadable game through Steam called Peggle that is extremely addicting. Those are a few that popped into my head. I suddenly realized how few non-violent games I play.... =0p

Also, check these games out on www.gamespot.com before you take my word for it. You could prolly find some games to fit your fancy while you're there as well.

Here is a list of PC games rated from best to worst. Start at the top, look through them, and maybe do a little googling/wikipedia-ing to see if any of them seem appealing to you.

Note that not all of them are 3D, but neither are some of the best PC games of all time. (Diablo and Starcraft come to mind.)

Any site that rates Elder Scrolls IV higher than III = fail.

Edit: As well as diablo > diablo II....

The site itself doesn't review games, it takes the average of dozens of reviews from popular reviewers such as PC Gamer and Gamespot.

Remember that timing is a big part of a game's review score. If Diablo came out today, it would receive very poor reviews. But back when it came out, it was revolutionary. ES IV: Oblivion was also pretty revolutionary in the graphics department.

Even with that in mind, I still wouldn't rate Diablo higher than Diablo 2. But that's just IMO of course.

I completely agree that Diablo 2 is a better game. The graphics, however, are only marginally better from those of Diablo and definately not as good as some of the games available at the time (such as Half-Life, which came out 2 years prior). This, along with a huge amount of online problems when it was first released, typically led Diablo 2 to receive lower review scores than its predecessor.

no offense, but this isn't helping. Diablo is rated M and so is Elder Scrolls...

Mount&Blade is a cool 3D game, but it is moderately violent. By violent, I mean there's fighting and blood, but you don't see body parts flying all over the place or anything like that. It hasn't been released to stores yet, and I don't know if it's been rated yet, but if you're interested, check out The M&B Website for more information. As far as game play goes, this is about the most realistic fighting game I've seen (but then again, I'm not much of a gamer)

I wasn't really suggesting Diablo 2. We were just talking about it. Sorry if I got off topic. :)

Have you looked in to Spore that is coming this fall? I'm sure it will be enjoyable for Sims fans.
