post #1 of 11

I usually play on a single display at 1920 x 1080 resolution.

can all games at max settings smoothly.. but its not the eye candy I am after, I dont like top view strategy games like Civilization, Red Alert etc. I like some good story in the games, I dont mind if they are a few year old that I might have missed.

for some reason I havent played Dead Space yet..

Batman: Arkham Asylum is a terrific single player game. Its on sale on steam for $7.50 this week. I'm not a fan of Batman and I thought it was great.
