new game, wat to get?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
im running out of games and fancy something new.
i was thinking maybe something like:
Crysis Warhead (lower graphics than crysis)
STALKER Call of Pripyat (already got the others)
or can someone recommend something that will run ok on my system (i know its crap) and has a good action and story?

thanks

Batman Arkham Asylum
Dead Space
Deus Ex 1+2
Bioshock 1+2

All of those have a great storyline and awesome action. I recommend you try the Batman game if you haven't already tried it. All are available via Steam.

P.S Your system is far from crap.

Crysis warhead was really only good for Crysis Wars, the multiplayer version of warhead. Honestly Warhead is unbelievably short, and kind of dissapointing as far as single player action goes.

Multiplayer is decent.

Do you like RPG's at all?

Ive heard really good things about the Dragon Age series, if your into single player RPG's then you may like that game.

Fallout 3 or Fallout New Vegas.

Fallout 3 GOTY has all of the expansions and should be fairly cheap.

Pro Tip: New Vegas is only £20 in Asda at the moment for 360 & PS3, and you can get it off Amazon for £22 for PC rather than paying £30 through Steam

Both have good action and a good story.

Crysis won't play that well on your machine at 1920x1080. It will play on low-medium at best I'm afraid. The story has a lot to be desired and the action isn't nearly as fun as it looked. If you are looking for a good game I personally wouldn't recommend them unless you are severely bored and you are out of options.

I also vote for Dragon Age. BioWare released an "ultimate edition" of the game which includes all the DLCs and expansion. Incredible package for an incredible game, can't recommend it enough.

There's also the Mass Effect series if you want something a little more shooter-like. Enjoy.

i do like Bioware, ive got Mass Effect 2 but i could do with getting Mass effect 1 so i know the story properly. :/
thats one thing which is holding me back of off dragonage is that i prefer shooters than like swords and bows....but i still play them, like oblivion altho i dont like the graphics (so picky)
wat do you think bout the last STALKER is it any different to the first 2?


EDIT: one game series i have had a look into before (but never really played the entire games just demos or shorts bits at mates houses) was F.E.A.R? wat are your verdicts on this game, are they worth a play from beginning to end?
