Game recommendation????

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I know this question can be a bit stupid considering everyone has their own likes and dislikes and preferences, but I am looking for a good PC game. I am not a huge gamer but I just built myself a comp desk, I have had my rig for a while but have been steadily upgrading it, I have two ASUS VS248H-P monitors on their way. I have not gamed since installing my two cards and RAM. I have been using my laptop and really liked MW2. I have Battlefield 3 on PS3 but was not real impressed. Most likely cause it sucks on the PS3, PC would probably have been better!

I was thinking about downloading MW3 but the reviews were in the gutter. Basically, the games I have played (on the PS3) that I liked were: Assasins Creed 1,2,3; Uncharted 1,2; Prototype 1; Metal Gear Solid: Patriots; Batman: Arkham. Uncharted was BAD ASS! Can anyone PLEASE recommend a PC game that may fall in line with what seems to be my preference. I am not oppossed to a game like Dragon: AoO and the game I am recently considering is Fallout 3. I have never played 1 or 2.

Seriously, any thoughts would be great. I just don't want to buy a game and it suck!!!!! Just looking for feedback......and not the "spend your own money" kinda feedback! LOL.

Much thanks (in advance)!!!

Damn, maybe I should have read previous threads! This seems a bit redundant. Any suggestions would be appreciated based on the games I have played though. I will thread search before I post next time.

You might enjoy Bioshock (outstanding game!) Rage (fun), Borderlands (fun), Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas , Call of Duty MW1. Try your hand at an RTS - Command and Conquer 3

i second this, Playing RAGE at the moment and its quite fun (if you like borderlands style games)
Skyrim is definitely worth it!
Fallout 3 and Vegas are dated but very fun if you haven't played them.
also check out Shogun 2: Total War if you havent already.

Half Life 1 and 2! Gah! How could I forgot those two? Ibito is right on the money there!

Bioshock, HL2, Skyrim, Fallout 3 - not just great games, but great experiences.

Thanks for all the replies! I am thinking about trying Skyrim and Fallout 3, or New Vegas, at this point. I know a question like this has a lot to do with personal preference so I appreciate all of the responses. I am on a motorcycle forum and if you ask a question like this you get your head chewed off! lol
