What is a fun game that will last a while? - Page 4

post #31 of 38
I would have suggested CS:S but you said you didn't like it . MMmm, Warcraft III EXP is a fun game but its 5-6 years old, so if you want something like that and you're willing to wait, I'd suggest Starcraft II which should be coming out in the upcoming year.

I still think you should get Stalker. It's pretty much my favorite FPS of all time, and trust me I've played a messload of them. Some people don't like it I think cause it's pretty tough at first, the instructions blow, and it just takes a little while to 'figure out'. Once you do though, its a blast. I've played through to Chernobyl countless times at this point, there's so many ways to do 'stuff'. It's got huge, open environments, accurately modeled weapons, a fairly simple 'rpg' system, great storyline, multiple endings (only one 'right one' though), incredible immersiveness, very decent graphics if you have a good machine, and some really freaky parts. For $20 you just can't beat it in my book, if you are into great single player campaign FPS's. Never tried the multi-player though.

However, I would buy it on a real disc though, not through Steam. If it crashes too much it tends to get corrupted, so it's nice to just have the dvd handy for reinstalls. You should also seek out and install the latest patches, plus the 'Float32' mod for it, makes it look/perform much better.

Orange Box. The Half Life Series is one of the best ever made, in my opinion. Portal probably is the best game ever made, and TF2 is an amazing multiplayer game.

I aggre The Orange Box is awsome, great fun, varied and will last you ages.
If you like FPS then STALKER is good as you can go all over and play it differntly each time.
Also BF2142 for online gameplay or quake wars.
COD4 is a great game on and off line but the single player is far far too short.

Counter-Strike... nuff said... I started playing in early 2004. I was lucky enough that the guy I bought it from didn't know how to activate a Steam account, let alone try to play it online.

Oh yeah, I bought HL1 game of the year edition bundle. It came with HL1, Opposing Force, That other expansion where you play as Barney, and CS1.6. Those were that days when I barely got cable internet.

I'd suggest saving another $29.99 and buy the Valve Complete Pack for $99.99 on steam. Has every Valve game made so far, and an excellent price. But for $70 I'd suggest the Orange Box, tons of fun.
