Basically any non-micro-intensive RTS, some RPGs, etc.

First thing that came to mind was CIV5, KOTOR, Rise of Nations, Age of Mythology, etc.

Hours of fun, perfect for just mouse gaming.

Crusader Kings 2 or the above Game of Thrones total conversion mod for the game. CK2 is pretty fun in itself. The GOT mod is just nerdtastic. Forum and D/L for mod.

thanks!

that depends on if you have use of your keyboard hand or mouse hand? biggrin.gif if it's mouse hand, you'd be good with something like a logitech G600 since you can map everything onto the side buttons. if it's keyboard hand, then you are fairly screwed biggrin.gif

Maybe I shouldn't laugh, but LOL!

How about a city builder sim? Something like Tropico. Or Roller Coaster Tycoon.

Command & Conquer Series? If you are an old timer, I'd suggest: Generals/Zero Hour, or RA 2/3, Age of Empires or something from the Tiberium series. smile.gif

If you're into league of legends I think it only uses like 3 or 4 keys. Correct me if I'm wrong, I've never played tongue.gif I just watch my friends. You could bind the few keys you need to the mouse.

If you got a joystick that might work nicely, or something like the logitech or razer game pads. Plenty of buttons and a joystick in one hand.

Unfortunately I do not think he would be able to play very well tongue.gif. You kind of need to be able to move your fingers on your non-mouse hand to cast spells, and as a person with hand cast experience this summer I know it is damn near impossible haha.

When I was casted (I broke my hand, not as bad as your injury. Hope you get better soon!) any FPS was off limits for obvious reasons. Depending on your interests, games with turn based elements always worked very well for me. Civ5 and KOTAR were both very nice to play and I put some time into both of those games in the 3 months I had my cast. However, gaming with a cast is just hard in general. I tried to do other things besides be on the computer, but hopefully you can manage better than I did smile.gif.
