Well, obviously not all is online, since nobody is playing here in the RPG-section
I rather play some DnD with a bunch of friends at a table than online.

..."when board games were cool"? Board games are cool. I love both board and computer games. Board games are more social and less "staring at a screen all day long"-like, computer games are more atmospheric (graphics, effects, music).

Some games we play: Carcassonne, Settlers of Catan, Pillars of the Earth, Agricola, RoboRally, Talisman, Dungeon Twister...I even bought HeroQuest (Master Edition) and two expansions off Ebay...and have the warhammer box "Battle for Skull Pass". A friend of mine has a huge Vampire Counts army and a smaller Orcs & Goblins army.

I'm currently making up special rules to brush up HeroQuest.

Ehm, you don't know HeroQuest? How old are you? HeroQuest is the mother of Warhammer Fantasy so to say. HeroQuest was released in 1989/90 by MB in cooperation with Games Workshop. HeroQuest -> Warhammer Fantasy.
Space Crusade was a similar board game with a scifi theme...which later became Warhammer 40k. The rules are light though...one plays the evil dungeon master, the other players play the heroes (HeroQuest) or space marines (Space Crusade). There are different monsters, traps, treasures, quests and expansions. These games cannot be compared to Warhammer, the rules are light as said before. Children can play it. It's just rolling dice to move, attack and defend and drawing cards.

I can remember back in the 80s, when I wasn't in school or playing soccer my friends & I would hide in my basement for days rolling dice and scribbling down characters. My favorite was a little mage that I named Yoda.

I love Thunderstone, a card game similar to Dominion but with a fantasy/dungeon theme. It is beyond great! You can also play it online for free:
