Looking for good Single Player PC Games with good Story and Gameplay - Page 3

post #21 of 30
If you haven't played Stalker Shadow of Chernobyl ... that should be first on your list. Play it with the 'Complete' mod to update the graphics to a more modern caliber, and you're all set. I've played pretty much every single player FPS of the past 10 years, and SoC is my all-time fave. Probably played it through about 15 times over the years since it came out. The story isn't anything totally amazing, but it's certainly good enough, esp. once it gets going a few hours in.

After that you have Call of Pripyat (play that 2nd) and Clear Sky (play that last as it's the least awesome of the three) to look forward to.

Also, although it's a bit older, if you haven't played Prey ... you definitely should. The level and art design is so amazing in it that it doesn't matter that it's 5 years old at this point ... it's still a great-looking game in my eyes. It also has an awesome and engrossing storyline.

Singularity was also surprisingly fun, didn't have any big expectations for it, and it turned out to be quite a good game. It's also exactly what you're describing ... newer, story-driven single-player FPS. It's definitely along the lines of HL2 and Metro.

I'd say to grab the Neverwinter Nights 2 Platinum package off of Steam. I can't say how addicted to that game I am right now. I picked it up during the summer sale and I already have over 70 hours played on that thing.

In my opinion for the kind of game it is the graphics still look pretty damn good too.

Dragon Age: Origins is a game any gamer worth their salt NEEDS to play.
And if you've been doing this as long as I have, you'll also get a lot of references to Baulder's Gate and Neverwinter Nights.

Splinter Cell series, tho the only game from that which falls into your time-line happens to also be the worst (Conviction)
Try Chaos Theory. Still looks good today and is a load of fun.

You know what? Screw your time line. Go play Max Payne 1 and 2...
While we're at it, play Mafia 1. You will sacrifice graphics but have amazing atmosphere and an amazingly delivered story.
Mafia 2 pales in comparison and just made me angry. There was so much wrong with that game. Not to mention it was purposefully made short so they could force-feed us DLC. The series started and died with Mafia 1.

Might edit this when I can thing of more.

I've played max payne 1 and 2, and I've also played mafia 2 as well. Those games were excellent.

Not trying to go off topic on you, but if you happen to have a PS3, God Of War III is simply the best video game I've ever played and I'm not a console guy.

I suggest Just Cause 2. The story is really funny if you like parodies of American 90's action-sploitation films. Plus the sandbox in it is a frigging SAND-MFING-BOX. Good game to waste some time in wink.gif
