    I have played all this list of games and more. I have removed a LOT of games which where not worth it, but this is my opinion.
    If you go for a modern game, Sleeping Dogs is like playing GTA San Andreas, with some Assasin's Creed mixed.
    So if I was you, I would go with Sleeping Dogs.

    Yeah, just dive into it and don't worry too much about figuring things out. I don't play games like that much either and was worried a bit about the intuitiveness of it, but I took to it relatively easy once I understood the way the AI works.

    The skills and crafting are fairly straight forward once you know what items you need, where to get them, and what play style you want to use. The AI system can take a bit of getting used to, but basically early on in the game you don't want to be caught doing anything illegal or attempt battling guards or other trained combatants.

    Breaking laws can have varying and sometimes confusing results, but it's always easily overcome if you do get into trouble via sleeping through jail time or escaping jail, which also buffs your lock picking and sneaking skills.

    BTW, part of Mass Effect's replay value is also in what class type you play as. Class types with biotic skills can vary greatly from soldiering skills. When I go back to play through it next time I will probably choose Vanguard instead of soldier.

    Many blockbuster games here. How about a huge battlefield with realistic tank battles that you can play at your own pace, and has big replayability? Acceptable learning curve, well done tank interiors, unseen scenarios (mesopotamia, africa, asia) Sandstorms, rain, aircraft and infantery included? Plus an editor for your own ideas, so you can literally create insane battles?

    Try Steel Armor Blaze of Ware (demo available)

    Some of them are scary others not but all of them bring lots of fun.

    I guess we can assume you have already played Minecraft? Sometimes I like to go back and play Doom 3 on hard mode, BFG would be a good chance for that. I just can't spend $30 on a game that I already own.

    No worries, "The Console" is your friend, probably the most powerful one in-game, a friend that is exclusively for PC players. Once you get the hang out of things come and join the party. :toast:

    Dark souls if you like rewarding gameplay. Dying to a boss 10 times in a row then finally beating him feels like an actual accomplishment.

    I played DOTA when it was on WC3, then played LoL since it was released. I played DOTA 2 for about an hour and couldnt really bare to play any longer. Guess I just preferred the original back in the day. Now it's just boring.

    Is the DOTA community any better than LOL? The nerdrage really gets to me after a few games.

    Unfortunately not much, but probably just a little bit. I have spent much more time with LoL than Dota2. Starcraft 2 has the best community I have ever seen in a game, and you can thank community leaders for instilling the right values in fans.

    I like the gameplay of LoL better than Dota2, but I haven't put more than 10 Dota2 games in so far.
