Still think Virtual Pool 3 is the best. Has rulesets for pretty much every pool game that I know of. Good if you want to play pool, snooker, or billiards.

The last Billiards game I really enjoyed was "Ultimate 8 Ball" on the PS1...

Looks like there's a PC demo... I don't know if it still holds up. Virtual Pool 3 may be better since it's more recent.

And that would be the full game (for under $3 used, not counting shipping).

I just remember that it had a variety of games to play, a variety of tables to play on (including nonstandard sizes, and shapes), a variety of locations/table styles, and a variety of AI opponents with their own style of play. The music was half decent.

Last one I played was Side Pocket on the Sega Genesis.

If you don't mind playing against other players, 8 Ball Pool on Miniclip/IOS/Android is surprisingly good for free. As long as you have some semblance of skill you won't run out of the currency it uses.

I didn't even know miniclip was still going until I got this on my nexus 7 the other day.

I never played VP3 but I've heard a lot of good things about it. The only billiards game I ever played was Virtual Pool Hall (which predates VP3) and I played that quite a lot with friends.

Another vote here for Virtual Pool 3, it's great and very comprehensive.
