    Default Good PC Games

    With the holiday season coming up, I'd thought I would ask my family for some PC games.

    However I am having a bit of difficulty choosing what PC games I may want.

    I Like anything that's a First Person Shooter, or a Survival Horror game, Adventure Game, I also like some specific kinds of Third Person Shooters/Action Games.

    I am Looking for games in the $9.99 - $19.99 or $29.99 range. The games must have an Excellent Story/Plot , I always love a good, Exciting, moving or Compelling Story in a game.

    Also I probably wouldn't mind trying out an RPG for once.

    Also It doesn't matter what the Games Rating is, as long as it's not Childish, Although I would Prefer games rated "Teen" or "Mature".

    Also Btw the games Must Not Contain Starforce.

    Are there any games that fit the catagories I mentioned?

    I'd be thankful if anyone can give me some suggestions

    Also here's a short list of games I already own:

    1.) Quake 4

    2.) Doom 3

    3.) Silent Hill 3

    4.) Silent Hill 4: The Room

    5.) Max Payne

    6.) Max Payne 2

    7.) The Matrix - Path of Neo

    8.) Sonic Heroes

    Thank You if Anyone Can give me any Suggestions

    Half-Life 2 (relatively long and satisfying), Prey (short, but good story). I'm not sure of the prices on those, however. Oooo...for an RPG, even if you aren't a Star Wars fan try Star Wars Kinghts of the old Republic (1 and 2...start with one obviously), I loved the story in that. Oblivion...that's a good one too, not sure if that's in your price range. There's an older game, Beyond Good and Evil, that's definitely in your price range, excellent story (like participating in a movie).

    Half Life 2 is a MUST for you! Can't believe you haven't played it.
    Also very good is the add-on for Doom 3 - Resurrection of Evil.
    Then you should play Far Cry and give Battlefield 2 and Brothers in Arms a try.

    Actually I already own Half-Life 2 and Far Cry, I just didn't want to mention them all, otherwise the list of games I own would of been longer.

    To Sum it up, the Other Games I own are:

    1.) Splinter Cell, and Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow


    2.) Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield, and Athena Sword.

    3.) Grand Theft Auto III, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas.

    4.) Devastation

    5.) Unreal and Unreal Tournament 2004

    6.) T3: War of the Machines

    7.) Red Faction 2

    8.) Global Operations

    9.) True Crime: Streets of LA

    10.) Tony Hawk's Underground 2

    11.) Enter The Matrix

    12.) Midnight Club 2


    Along with the games mentioned in my first post, Far Cry, and Half-Life 2, are the games I already own.

    Btw My PC is not fast enough to play games like F.E.A.R W/O Major Slowdown/Lag

    My Current PC is only a Celeron D 330 @ 2.66 Ghz, BFG Geforce FX 5500 OC, and 1024 Megs of ram.

    I will be building a new system soon. Hopefully a Dual Core Conroe System, with a Geforce 7900 GS all going to be bought from newegg.


    So games like F.E.A.R, with tons of eyecandy will have to hold off till I can build a better system

    Frage hm

    Im surprised that Quake 4 would be your favourite pc game. Thats a really fun game but its not as fun as the games out there like Diablo and warcraft ( not a good game either) age of empires......i would rate quake probably 4th on my list

    games you should be able to play
    dead space
    timeshift
    left 4 dead
    fallout 3
    bioshock
    and if you like a new kind of fps check out portal

    games you will be able to play if you dont mind real classics
    dues ex and dues ex - invisible war (2 seperate games not an expantion)
    system shock 2
    (but not ss1 it's very bad + no-one sells it an y more not even online)
    though ss2 is pretty pricey for a old game (around 30$) i think its exactly what your looking for its a fps and a rpg

    ps some of those games up the top may be out of ur price range for some time

    pps those last few games may not be sold at a games store anymore (check online)
    I know it's been a while, but I now have Dead Space, Left 4 Dead, and Bioshock.

    I never said it was my favorite, it's just one of the games I own in my collection.

    To think how much my PC game collection has grown since starting this thread, not only do I have a bunch of retail games, I also have a bunch of games I purchased through Steam. I have to have at least over a 100+ PC games, I would of had more if I hadn't sold some of my PC games to Gamestop back when they were still accepting trade ins for PC games.

    Since I started this thread I've built myself a fairly nice PC with a Core2Duo E8500, Geforce 9800 GT, 4 GB DDR2 Dual Channel Ram, and Windows 7 x64.
