PC Game

We in Brunei always knew that the "Pirates" have manage to do quiet well in supplying us with the latest movies from the silver screen, unfortunately nothing can be said with the pirated PC games. As a gamer I find it very frustrating to wait for our local supplier to come good and sell those recent and newest PC game in the market. In Brunei, as far as I know there are only two computer shop which can supply me with this hobby of mine. However the selection are very limited and most of them are not what you call up to date. Moreover pirated PC games is not as easy as buying pirated dvd as we have virusus to worry about and in some cases some of this game will not work as some of the files are either missing or corrupted.


PC games in Brunei is not really picking up that well, I guess a lot of Brunei gamers here are only interested in those shooting games (Counter Strike) and Football Management (Championship Manager). I got friends who also play PC games but they are only interested in this two genre. I guess not many Bruneians out there who like those point and click adventure games (Siberia, Broken Sword,Myst), strategy games (Command & Conquer, Warcraft, Age of Empires), simulation (The Sims, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Sim City) and many more like I do.

I remember this one computer shop who specialised in origional PC games by the name of "Torc" situated somewhere in Menglait way back in the nineties. I believe the owner of the shop is a true gamer so that's why a lot of new and good quality games came to our shore back then and not to mention that it had also created a big hole in my wallet. Nowdays Hua HO is the only sole supplier of origional PC games in Brunei but again the choices are still not that good. So until they broden their imagination on the selection of games, I can only keep my finger cross everytime I make my visit to "Kadai Kominis" hoping that they will sell the games that I really want and that actually work at the sametime.

I love point-and-click adventure games mainly because growing up with video games I now want something that doesn't pressure me ;) I'm currently playing through Runaway 2: Dream of the Turtle (great game) and I've got a slew of other Adventure games that I bought in Singapore. Trying to find the latest release in Brunei, pirated or otherwise, is indeed a difficult task.

The only other shop that I can think of that sold original games is Challenger. It used to be above Hua Ho Yayasan. We all knew it wouldn't last long because like DVDs there's no market for the original stuff.
