Pick me out some games to try?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Games I enjoy that i've played for either pc or console:

overlord
rise of immortals
warcraft2/exp
Diablo/DiabloII/LoD
StarCraft
Fallout3
Any Elder Scrolls Game
Borderlands
Dead Island
----------------------------

Now, i'm asking what some people could reccommend for me to pick up for my pc collection to start making it larger:

Upon Starting back so far i've bought RAGE and waiting for it to come in.

Ideas:
I have roughly 28 dollars to buy games with at amazon.com as long as they are sold my amazon/shipped by amazon. That is my only "rule" for helping me pick some out as im using credits i've built up from past pre orders of stuff etc.

So basically I have 30 dollars, recommend me some games to start my collection out right. Thanks in advance guys. Also I plan to upgrade my 5770 or pick up another one once I find a second juniper XT but haven't had much luck thus far. The sig rig is still being built at current time.

If you enjoy first person shooters, and want to build a nice collection, I would seriously recommend any/all of the Valve games on steam. HL2 and all the episodes are still amazing, L4D2, Portal 2, TF2 (free!), plus steam is great too

Also, Mass Effect 1+2, amazing storyline's, don't know anyone who hasn't enjoyed them...

I tried mass effect on the 360 a while back, it's like dragons age to me, I play them to a certain point then just stop. Steam is not a problem but I won't be buying any games through them for 2 reasons. I have the credit on amazon to spend and I like owning physical copies of my stuff as I have many collectors editions and such already. Just a personal preference there.

If you liked Rise of Immortals, have you looked into League of Legends? It's also free to play.

Have you played the first series of Supreme Commander? If so, I don't think you will like it because they reduced the size on everything and completely reworked how the game manages the economy.

Sadly I never got to try it out in all honesty.
