Need some new game suggestions - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Thread Starter 
So far looking good guys! I'm putting all these suggestions in a list and let her look at the screenshots of them to see what she wants .

And yes....she's already BEATEN the games listed above. So she needs something new!

BTW...how's the HL2 Lost Coast? I think that's the free single player game on steam? How's that one? And we've already got HL2 Episode 1...so I'll load that on there for her.

Still up for other suggestions too.

Anybody know of a scary game as well? One that can top FEAR for scariness?

Again...I'm looking for ANY games that would be in the same general genre as the ones I listed above. I think basically FPS's is what she'd like...but anything you can recommend would be nice .

Try HL2, Stalker, Assassins Creed(Maybe), you could also throw her The Witcher, and see how shes likes RPG's. If she does, you get get her into WoW.

Here are my suggestions

1: Half-Life 2, Ep1, Ep2. and yes. you must play them in that order, lol.
2: STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl
3: Half-life 1. The graphics suck and the gameplay is primitive by today's standards, but it's still a 1337 game
4: Far Cry. Still a good looking aoverall much better than decent game
5: Quake 4. Pretty good shooter
6: Company of Heroes. I know you aren't' a big RTS fan but I'm suggesting it anyways since I love the game
7: Any Mechwarrior game. Older series but it still kicks ass. MW3 was the best IMHO but wont run on 64-bit OSs. Make sure you have and are competent w/ a joystick or, you have a game pad

OBTW: HL2: lost coast was just a playable tech demo for the source engine really.

edit: Condemned and Condemned 2 are both based on the same engine as FEAR and are supposed to be quite good and scary.

STALKER:SOC

Greatest FPS ever.

IMHO.

It's often very tense, and some parts, are what you might call traditionally 'scary'... The first time I tried to go through lab x18 I was home alone late at night, I literally turned the game off to wait until morning light. It was freaky as hell the first time. Lab x16 and the agroprom underground are pretty hairball too.

The half-life 2 series is also of course highly recommended, and playing them in order makes the most sense. If you get them, you should look into grabbing the fakefactory mods. They make the graphics look crazy good...

Doom 3 is similar to Fear and Bioshock, claustrophobic with some good jump out of your seat moments, a bit older than those 2 but still worth a look.

The Max Payne games are great shooters with an engaging story too, though are third person rather than first, definitely give those a try.

Doom 3 - really dark environments, great gameplay

Quake 4 - not as dark as Doom 3 but very similar

Gears of War - haven't played it on PC but the single player was sick! (not FPS)
