New PC Gamer here

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So i just recently started gaming on pc's not to long ago. Ive always been a console person since I couldn't afford a good computer. Im just looking for any game recomendations. Maybe some classic title that no pc gamer should go without. Im familiar with most new games since most also come out out console.

Games I currently am playing or played
Metro 2033-beat
half life 2- 50%beat
portal-got 4 free on steam-only one 2 levels so far
Splinter cell conviction-about 50% beat
supreme commander 2- only play multiplayer

I was thinking about maybe the half life 2 episodes after im done. Any advice is apprecieted. Open to pretty much eerything besides sports games which i only play on consle. open to everything els fps, rpg, strategy, mmo

thanks
Sparticus

Let see, I'm going by what games I have and have enjoyed playing:

The Knights of the Old Republic games
The Assassin's Creed games
Dragon Age: Origins
World in Conflict
Starcraft
I've never actually played Half-Life (1 or 2), but I've always heard good things about them.

I'll probably think of more later.

If you like shooters I'd defiantly pick up BC2, its a great game, even though it has come console port aspects to it. For a RTS I really enjoy Company of Heroes, DotA/ League of Legends. Also, BF2 is a great old classic that is still extremely popular today for its groundbreaking game play that has yet to been replicated even my Dice themselves.

If you like Splinter Cell, try Batman Arkahm Asylum. Very cool game.

And if you like multiplayer RTS, Starcraft II is right around the corner, so you'll be happy then.

When considering story immersion and overall quality, Warcraft 3 is up there with being one of the slickest RTS games. If you just started on the PC and you like the RTS genre you should get it. Blizzard offers it through digital distribution. Check out battle.net service.

All games listed above + any console game you've owned and played. Experience will be 10x better on PC... Except Star Wars Force Unleashed.
