Pick me out some games to try? - Page 2

Well it's basically a real time strategy game similar to Starcraft but all races are mechanical. They have their pros and cons against each and different strategies to take on each etc. It uses a similar resource system as Starcraft as well so you might fit right in. Story is alright and the multiplayer is a little dead. I resort to mods to bring the game back to life again.

If you're looking into expanding your PC collection and testing your taste, you cant go wrong picking up some FREE games, especially considering your limited budget.

Of course, many free games are garbage. That said, I have a few I can more than recommend:

Tribes 2 - Literally THE BEST team based shooter of all time, IMO. Think team based Quake, with jet-packs, vehicles, and base assets. The official servers for T2 have been shut down but you can snag the game and run it for free on new fan-run servers. www.tribesnext.com

Global Agenda - Jetpack-enabled Third person shooter MMO hybrid, you can find it on steam. I can personally offer you an agency, help in the game, and a coupon to get "elite agent" status for 30% off if you later decide it is worth it to you. Add me to your friend list in-game as ZeroMMXZ.

Anarchy Online - The best free true mmorpg out there, imo. Think WoW+Everquest, only bigger, and in space and in the future... The only downside is it is a very old game, and the graphics show it. It is also very complicated (as is Tribes 2 for that matter) so feel free to ask people in game (or shoot me a PM) if you need any help.

Alien Swarm and Team Fortress 2 are both free on steam. While I'm not in love with either, it wouldnt hurt to grab them. I'm sure you know all about TF2 by now, and alien swarm is a team based top-down co-op shooter.

Legions Overdrive - Fan-run version of Legions: Fallen Empire, a game from the now dead instantaction.com. It is essentially a stripped down, streamlined version of Tribes which focuses on maneuverability and small-scale battles. A quick google search should find you the download.

Now, as for spending that amazon money, id grab Just Cause 2, or the Guild Wars Trilogy

League of Legends isn't on steam. Just go to their site for it.

If you like Immortals you'd almost certainly prefer LoL. I tried Immortals the other day and found it clunky, unpolished, and generally lacking. The only thing it has over LoL are the pve boss fights.

I haven't seen any racing games listed so far, if you wanted to give one a try I would suggest getting trackmania (free), or Need for Speed Shift (cost). Also GRID (cost) is an older game but it still looks amaizing and is fun to play.

had assassins creed on xbox, actually liked it but never finished it and now there is a few out so i'm not sure their order they go in.

Update: I was buying the first witcher and someone actually bought it from amazon as I was checking out so I couldn't complete the transaction. I ended up with:

Fallout: New Vegas and BioShock 2 for 2.07 cost for me. Pretty good deal in my opinion.

What I plan to buy when my funds come in are:

Witcher 1&2
Assassins Creed Series i'm considering as well
And Gonna Start up my Crysis Collecting and having fun with that.

I appreciate everyone that offered me ideas!

I've seen Grid before and when you said that first thing I thought of was DiRT I think it was, i'll check into them. I've never been much into racing games or simulation games apart from Hawx and it's overly simplified for average users.
