Pool Games are awesome

Okay, it might be a matter of semantics, maybe I wasn’t clear, but if you came here looking for games to play while frolicking in the water with the kids you will be disappointed.

No, this is all about billiards. I think it might be my favorite sport. Hell, I’ve actually written a whole novel with pool as a focus (publication pending). The problem is that not everyone has a table at home and going out to a bar to play sometimes involves avoiding getting shanked by coked-up bikers.

The solution? Playing on the computer.

Virtual Pool: I’m starting with the best pool game ever. The physics and graphics are as realistic as you can get. I first bought this game a decade ago and I’ve played it more than anything else in the world. Now they’re on to version 4.

Want a free alternative? Pool Sharks has the same feel though perhaps not the same level of detail. It has the advantage of offering several games like 8-ball or straight pool, different views, and table carpeting. It’s a fun distraction.

Finally, if you’re into a richer experience, 8 Ball Pool Multiplayer is for you. It connects you with random players and it’s kind of fun to play against live humans. I also enjoy the short trajectory line that lets you know where you’re aiming.

Have fun!
