1. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (Multiplayer)
2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Single player)
3. Batman: Arkham Asylum
4. Bioshock 2
5. Crysis 2
6. F1 2010
7. Dirt 2 & 3
8. Grand Theft Auto: IV & Episodes from Liberty City (Don't get mad if you can't max out this game, it is a really bad console port and hard to max out at 60 fps. tongue.gif)
9. Half Life 2
10. Just Cause 2
11. Left 4 Dead 2 (Multiplayer)
12. Mafia II
13. Metro 2033

Lost Coast AFAIK is not an actual game, but merely a technical demonstration.

i have so many games, that i just dont play because DoD Source is MUCh more fun

dude! I used to always go on that 24/7 avalanche server! and yeah great game smile.gif

I would suggest you get counter strike source. Easily one of the best games out there, and the most played on my steam account. But my most played game EVER is runescape, I made my first account back in 2005 and have racked up over 2700 hours in game....

I hope to be able to separate myself from Red Alert 3 (so nostalgic!) long enough tonight to start HL2.

You can only activate certain retail games on Steam. Link

The good thing about Steam is their deals. If you're patient, you will probably see the game you've been looking to buy on sale.

As for games, I play quite a bit of Borderlands and have yet to get tired of it. Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Bioshock, Race Driver GRID, and NFS SHIFT are all pretty fun and look good maxed out.

There are very few games which you can do that with, mostly those games that use steam as their DRM, Cod mw2 and blops for example. and you should not buy pc games on ebay as the key/license is the important thing not the disk itself.

I would say SC2 is a must buy if your into strategy even just for the single players, Other than that try and pick up the odd thing cheap in the steam sales you can get some really awesome deals on there.
