    Could anyone advise me on some PC games that can be played using just a mouse or trackerball. I am paralysed from the shoulders down, but can operate a PC using a trackerball with my chin. This means I can only play games that just need a trackerball but not the keyboard e.g Diablo, lemmings.

    They obviously don't tell u this before you get a game. I have downloaded several demo's, but I have spent ages filling up my PC with game demo's that I then find out I can't play.

    If anyone can advise any decent games it would be appreciated.
    (I can use the trackerball with both buttons reasonably competantly, so the speed of game shouldn't be a problem)

    Cheers,

    Ash

    I think you'll probably be able to play most rpg's like Neverwinter nights with only a trackerball. All of the game features are but a click away. You can use keyboard short cuts to access inventory etc but it's not essential as all the options are accessible with just a mouse (just takes a bit longer). I think most point and click adventure games like riven, broken sword and a lot of rts's should be OK too. Here's a few I'd recomend of the genres mentioned:-

    Dungeon Seige
    Neverwinter Nights
    Baldurs Gate series
    Riven
    Myst
    Broken sword series
    Discworld noir
    Civilisation 3
    Comand & Conquer Series
    Empire earth.
