A friend showed me about a game called Awakened Lands. It's a FREE, online game perfect to waste time during the day while at work.
You start out in the near future as a guy with health and stats and you have to choose the career path he takes. You can have a military career, medical career, construction, engineer, politician, etc... and you gain experience and additions to your stats. You can then do crimes that will bring you money and will add experience that will cause you to gain levels and make the various crimes get easier and your money made on the crimes more. $$$ You can choose to be a ranged or melee combatant specializing in gun-use or hand to hand combat using swords, knives, etc... It is different than most games in which you never see your character. It's more of an intelligent person's game and it takes lots of strategy.
After strengthening your character you join gangs and battle other gangs by attacking their hideouts, etc... People from all over the world play it and you can msg between people and meet lots of cool peeps. If you're bored at work or want something fun to do, this is definitely addictive.
