Playing Games

  ponytail 09:24 26 Sep 2010

I have recently had a serious operation and am confined to the house for at least another eight weeks.As I have quite a few PC games is it possible to play them through my television set it is a modern set with all the right sockets I believe.I could play them using my wifes laptop and I have a external DVD/CD drive.If it is possible what do I need and what is the procedure.
