So, here's the deal:

I've been studying for 18 months now and haven't been able to afford a decent gaming rig until now! Due to this, I haven't played a new game since Bioshock (1)!

Now, I've bought the rig in my sig, and want to see some beautiful action on my screen, and have therefor been looking into some games to buy. I'm going to buy around 8-10 games, but I have no idea which are good, and which aren't!?

I've been looking into getting:

Fallout 3
Fallout: New Vegas
Bioshock 2
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 + Vietnam
Mafia II
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat (loved the first one)
Mass Effect 2
Fallout 3
Race Driver: GRID
Crysis (believe it or not, I have never played it)
Left 4 Dead 2
Far Cry 2
Dead Space

PS: I love FPS, cargames and hybrids (such as GTA).

Now, are there any other games I ought to be looking into, or are there any of the games on my list I could go without? And is my rig able to handle these at high res without a dedicated PhysX card?

Thanks in advance!!

NOW WITH POLL!

Poll.

If you want best sound / visual effects in a multiplayer game (and a very good game overall if you play with the right people) I would recommend Bad Company 2.

Also Battlefield 3 in a few months.

left 4 dead 2 is currently the most fun ive had with a game, but its only an online game hey, sp is super lame

u also cant go wrong with bc2 but it seems that its the opposite to what you like...
if u liked bioshock 1 get 2, from what i heard it only got better
crysis is a rubbish game, might as well be sold as a benchmark...
far cry 2 is old and not worth it imo

u listed fallout 3 twice -_-

i would also wait on getting vietnam, first make sure you actually like bc2 first then buy it

just my 2c

Yeah, I thought of setting up a poll, but I'd rather take recommendations and look them up for myself. If a lot of people recommend the same games, I'l probably get them! Besides, If I were to set up a poll, I would need to make an option for almost every single game released the last 13 months

And thanks for the input! I love the whole Battlefield series, and will most likely get all of the ones I haven't played as of yet!

Thanks for the constructive input! I've just heard so much about the graphics in Crysis being "ÃœBERL33T" etc., that I thought it was worth looking into

And I actually had no idea Fallout: New Vegas was the same as Fallout 3, so thanks for the heads up!

Not true. It has many different modes including single player and you can use steam in offline mode. Nonetheless one of the best games I have ever played and after 1500 or so hours I still love it.

Just Cause 2 was pretty bad ass as well.

Prototype was awesome I thought.

As was Assassins Creed 2.

EDIT: and Fallout: New Vegas is NOT the same as Fallout 3. Different games entirely. I think he just meant that you listed Fallout 3 twice and Fallout New Vegas once in your list. I got so bored with Fallout 3 after a couple days, and Fallout New Vegas I just bought and is turning out the same way.

You getting fallout twice? Anyways your list looks pretty decent. Why not look into Killing Floor on steam, fun game there. I suggest: Bad Company 2 + vietnam, Fallout new vegas, left 4 dead 2, dead space, Killing floor, dead space 2, stalker and Mass effect 2.

In the ones you listed: cant go wrong with BC2.

Some you haven't listed:
Just Cause 2 imo is a pretty good game that surprised me.
Dirt 2 is a good driving game.
