I need to find a new game...
Getting bored of shooters Like BC2 and MW2
Maybe I need some MMO love, I tried playing my WoW account but just count bare to play more then 30-40 minutes.
I need something new/fresh or maybe just a good game with a good storyline/plot that draws you in.

I'm a pretty avid gamer, so If you can find a game that I havent played and that keeps me playing for more then 30 minutes there might be a small reward or at least some rep+


Good luck!

DiRT 2 is a goody, and you've got the hardware for it. It's quite fun. If you do get it, I'd recommend changing the controls from the arrow keys to the WASD setup.

Own dirt 2, haven't finished it yet but it got repetitive and the keyboard was a cruel mistress to try and play it on. Plants vs Zombies is epic, downloaded it for iPhone so I can play it while I'm on the bus to my CCNA class
Reminds me of the TD games on WC3

Batman: Arkham Asylum, I P/U it on sale for $25, was surprised by how good it was. Very polished and great voice acting(H Quinn is sexy too BTW
).

Batman: Arkham Asylum Steam Page

Civ:4 is also good if you ever played the older civs.

Civ4 Complete Package

You could also try League of Legends(its free) if you have never played a MOBA(E.g. DoTA).

League Of Legends Main Website

If your really oldschool, you could try to beat the X-Com series(can buy them on steam dirt cheap). Also worth mentioning is Adom, an old rouge text based game.

UFO: Afterlife

Not exactly the same but it is a turn based strategy game(and its only $10). If you like this game you will like the X-Com games as well.

I too was playing too many FPS's with COD4 , MW2 , BC2, etc.

I played Mass Effect 2, and I have to say that it was a very refreshing break. Great Story line, which kept me completely hooked to the end. I am actually considering getting ME1 now to learn the full story line.

Currently playing Dragon Age Origins, which is Good, but not as good as Mass Effect.

Someone else mentioned Batman: Arkham Asylum, which is also an excellent game, however I would only play it with the xbox 360 controller, as it was not a good interface with a keyboard & mouse.

Happy Gaming.
