games when you got no internet

What games are the best when you got no internet. (for an extended time)
I reckon games that are very replayable- see Card Crawl, or something that might be campaign based, eg have some sort of content to the game like Crashlands.
What would be your games on a desert island?

iNethack 2 and Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead. Both are free, extremely complex rougelikes that pay very close attention to detail. iNethack has the usual swords and sorcery theme. Cataclysm has an open world, post apocalyptic zombie theme, with crafting and base building as well. Like I said, the two games pay very close attention to detail. For example, in Cataclysm, you should be careful when firing a gun at close range, since your character might become deaf.

There's plenty of card games and board games that do the trick very well. Just as long as they're not the completely typical CCG type (eg hearthstone). Games like Ascension, Star Realms, Xenoshyft, Lost Portal, galactic keep, Templar battleforce just to name a few.

Also Donsol, and deckdedungeon are games just like the one you mentioned, card crawl.

He said "no internet," not "no electricity."

I didn't know desert islands came with USB ports!

I'd say Rimelands, Kinetic Damage, and Carnivores.

Er, pretty much all the games I play don't require the internet. RPGs, dual-stick shooters like Space Marshals, platformers, ARPGs... In fact, most of the games listed above by Exact Pscience.
