what are some games 5+ years old that are still active online and fun to play?

playing games doesn't take up too much usage unless you have to stream something. Patches is the big problem.

I already own diablo 3 for 360 and it has too many patches for PC.

I'll look into ages of empire 2 conqueror.

I just want more games that are fun to play online and fun to screw around in. I'm also looking at battlefield bad company 2, but it has a 2.5gb patch and I'll have to download it at a friend's house.

Anything else?

age of empires 2, even in hd, looks a little too outdated for me. And it looks like it has too much strategy involved in it. I know I said I like warcraft and rts's, but I'm looking more for a hybrid RTS w/ heroes or something similar.

data caps are atrocious. I would hate to have one.

Just play user created maps like Castle Blood Auto, also get the original version, the HD one is overpriced and its worse. If you get it, download Voobly, thats were 60% of the community plays.

Why don't you download the patches for starcraft 2 at your friends house then? Or any other game with patches for that matter. lol

anything else? I also like sci fi settings, like games set in space or lots of battles where you can see the stars at night.

i own the kotor series just so you know

RTS with heroes? Maybe Spellforce? Spellforce 2 happens to be part of the Humble Weekly Sale right now. No idea how much data it takes up or if Spellforce 1 is still active.

Battlefront 2 has a few full servers at peak hours. Wouldn't be surprised if interest picked up with Battlefront 3 announcement.
