What game(s) should I get?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I just got done building my computer of Wednesday. Now it's time to find some games to play

Most of my pc gaming has been with Guild Wars and Diablo 2. They are probably favorite games of all time. I normally played games like Call of Duty and Halo on consoles.

Anyways, I want some suggestions on what games I should buy.

I would recommend looking at world of tanks, free online MMO. Kinda like call of duty but with tanks.

Dead space, and then dead space 2 is coming out soon. I finished it and am on the second run through with my upgraded equiptment.

Fear 2 is fun.
Dirt 2 and Grid are fun racing games. GTAIV and Episodes from liberty city are both fun if you like that kinda game.
Starcraft 2 is a must to at least try. There are guess passes you can get.
Get a steam account and just look through their sales when they have them.

First off Steam is having (or had, I saw the ad yesterday) a sale, if you get Dead Space you get Dead Space 2 for I think around 60% off! I didn't give it a good look however....

Also I would recommended the Penumbra Series and Amnesia the Dark Descent, both puzzle/action games. The first Penumbra is pretty generic, you have to get from beginning to end, and there are also enemies you can kill with melee weapons and the story is really the only thing that the game has going for it, BUT THE SECOND GAME is awesome, first off it takes out combat,so you have to deal with your enemies with wit. Also the series runs on a great Physics Engine (the HPL Engine, that is powered by the Newton Physics Engine), and it also has a amazing story plot!

Amnesia is made by the same guys (Frictional Games) and is Penumbra with a different story, newer engine (HPL2), and basically everything is refined. Still great nonetheless though.

Also with your NVidia GPU you will be able to take advantage of PhysX games like Arkham Asylum. The game is great without the advanced physics with a awesome story and clean gameplay, but PhysX just greatly adds to the experience.

Get a steam account ASAP.

I would get TitanQuest1/2, very cheap and then just look at the sales section on the weeknds. You can also downloads a lot of demos to see what you like.

I like RTS games a lot and if you do as well check out the Total War series

Grats on the new build.

Bad Company 2. Like everyone else said, get a steam account store.steampowered.com
post #7 of 16
As much as I dislike steam, they have some awesome sales, so, make sure to get an account ASAP. Look at starcraft 2, a must have RTS, great gameplay and everything. Take a look at crysis to see what that 570 is capable of As mentioned, Titan quest isn't bad as well for an RPG, bad company 2 for fps, etc....

I would go for the following (off the top of my head):
Mass Effect 1 & 2
The Orange Box
Left 4 Dead 2 (and 1)
Heroes of Newerth (if you were a DoTA fan)
Star Craft II (if you like RTS games)
Just Cause II (if you like sandbox games)
Super Meat Boy (if you like platform games)

Darksiders is good, It does have its cons though (e.g. copying portal with the portal gun)
im currently playing Dead Space 2, I would recommend it, the graphics are a million times better than Dead space 1.
GTA IV is very fun, you can install mods etc.
Battlefield Play4free is VERY GOOD. its also free.

I SECOND TITAN QUEST IF YOU LIKED DIABLO 2 (The caps was to make a point)

I'd highly recommend:

Starcraft 2 (Arguably best RTS of all time)
Mass Effect Series (1 and 2 soon 3) (Epic story-line RPG Sci-Fi)
Dragon Age (Epic story-line RPG Medieval)
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (Modern Warfare FPS)
