What are some good htpc (on the couch) type pc games?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just upgraded to a 580 and my 460 has been relegated to htpc duty but i'm wondering what are some fun games I could play with my wireless xbox controller? I'm not totally adverse to racing games but i've never played them much. If it's on steam and a reasonable price (for a racing game) perhaps it'd be nice.

One i find extremely easy to get into and relax in is a half life 2 mod called Zombie Panic Source. Just watch out for the loudmouths on mic's and you'll have a pretty enjoyable time. Cabin maps are a pretty popular unoffical choice to play on.
