recommend me a few games :)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I know there are countless threads like this, but everyone has different taste, and I noticed the recommendations are often based of the OP's taste.

Right now I play a lot of HoN and BC2. Sometimes CS 1.6. I like RTS and FPS games mostly but a good RPG would be nice for a rainy day. I think phantasy star online 2 is coming out this year, I played the first for years so I might pick that up... depends if/howmuch you have to pay for online play.

I've been thinking of getting Shogun 2, the witcher 1, mass effect 1 and bc2: vietnam. Only 1 for now though...

The Witcher Enhanced Edition is fun. It's going for $10 USD right now on GOG.

"What's cool about it:
Arguably one of the best RPGs ever made, with a mature, non-linear story and a challenging combat system
Beautiful graphics and an enchanting soundtrack create a very unique dark fantasy atmosphere
The Witcher's universe is created by Andrzej Sapkowski - bestselling fantasy author"

Well BC Vietnam (at least for me) wasn't very fun or different enough from the main BC2. Mass effect is definitely a great game. Shogun 2 is also a great game but I've had desync issues when running the game in multiplayer campaign mode.

I have never played Witcher so I can't comment on that.

Lets go to the future and see if Fable 4 takes all the things good from the 1rst Fable, 3rd Fable, and make an awesome game out of it. So you can have a character you can build muscle mass too, cool swords, and cool armor all in one game!

If you like RTS games get Starcraft2 ASAP, I own it myself and it's really the few rts games i bother to play.
Since you play HoN, i take it League of Legends won't interest you? Since it's free i'd suggest you to give it a try, I really think it's the best F2P game i have played and as funny as it is, i didn't like Dota at all, but LoL is one of my favourite games right now.
on the RPG note, Dragon Age 2 was probably one of the best i have every played, completed it in total nolife sessions, i think i opened it twice on the first playthrough, i found it to have a good replay value as well. I highly recommend mass effects as well.

thanks for the opinions everyone. I think I might go for the witcher 1 or shogun 2. I wouldn't play LoL because I think HoN is better (not trying to get into a debate, just my opinion). SC2 might be interesting too.

I picked up Dragon Age: Origins on steam, with all of the DLC content packs on sale. I'm between 20 and 30 hours deep into the game, and I can't stop playing it. I will literally drop everything I need to do in order to play for 7+ hours straight. I have not had an addiction like this since... I used to play WoW with good friends on mine.

But this is so much better. Instead of having to play with *******, you can actually "script" the AI of your party mates a bit, and if they're not doing what you want, you can manually take over for a bit, or continuously pause and assign commands if you want to micromanage. So. Much. Fun.

Hehe, that's what I thought. Most dota players find HoN better.
I didn't like dota at all, absolutely hated it.
They're all very similiar but LoL somehow appealed to me.

I'm enjoying Fable 3.

Brink is pretty good too, so far.
