    I have this awesome pc but no good games are even out that even look fun, I just need some suggestions. Ive played:

    -League of Legends- very unbalanced game and gets boring extremely fast, too many people talk crap, the rank system is bullcrap
    -Crysis 1&2- I liked the first one but the second one was WAY to boring story was crap multiplayer was fun until the hologram thing was featured
    -ModernWarfare1&2- I hate these games period
    -UT3-Finished it, was fun, multi player is not even alive anymore
    -Steam Games- yeah a lot of the games are fun but boring as im playing them half series is fun, but I find myself getting the phyx gun everytime(its a cheat). Portal is fun but repetitive, I hope portal 2 is better..
    -Starcraft2- campaign is slow multiplayer gets boring and all anyone plays is terran and protoss
    -Battlefield- really tired of military based games that come with prone and shots through walls etc

    there are more but I dont wanna bore anybody, anyways suggestions please :( I wanna play my pc

    You could try FSX Flight simulator or others.
    I love playing BF2 VN once in a while. I still always wonder how that one guy found me in a barrel buried 5 feet under with concrete over me lol
    I played Americas Army ( Which is still going good) For 10 years.
    You might want to check that out, Its mostly team work. Not a narrow frag fest like BLK-Ops.

    My personal suggestion is either sins of solar empire or homeworld. Decent games, good 3d (actually used in game), and decently compelling stories.

    The former is new, the later is quite old.

    I've played Sin of solar empire, and I thought it was ok graphics and such look great on that game, but I found the buildings and stuff to be WAY to confusing for me, especially since im use to simplicity like WC3 and SC2

    You really didn't say what genres you really like, or like the best. That would help us give you ideas.

    Have you tried Minecraft?
    as terrible as the graphics may seems, it ridiculously addicting when you play it with friends.

    Do you like tower defense? Try Defense Grid : The Awakening.
    Fun game and good replay value if you are the kind of person who enjoys bettering a previous score.

    Sacred 2 is a good 3rd person RPG.

    I just purchased Freespace 2 from GOG, but I'm afraid to start lest it consume my soul (I'm a big fan of sapce games). :laugh:

    As Tianhui said, Minecraft is not beautiful but once you start building ... you're hooked.

    Hey guys I've been playing a couple of the games you guys suggested and so far so good, I was wondering if anyone knows of a game with really good physics.

    Well Evochron Mercenaries (indie space sim) has newtonian physics to replicate a truer space environment...it's pretty cool, but takes some time initially to learn how to play it..though it does have online.

    BF BC2 has some interesting physics, World in Conflict has some good destruction physics. The GTR and Race series from Simbin are solid racing sims with kickass vehicle physics.

    I do recommend Borderlands + DLC...it's a hoot especially with a friend or two or three in coop, I've also gotten back into playing SupCom 2 for my quick but semi-in-depth RTS...it may be simple, but it sure is fun imho. Dirt 2 is a solid racing title that can be found for fairly cheap and has great graphics. I've gotten back into NFS Shift (just recently did a bunch of mods...and I'm happy!), and I forgot I had GRiD on my Steam games list, so got that redownloaded and might actually play it thru this time...I've never been far in that game ever.

    As someone else stated, if you need an RPG fix, The Witcher EE is on sale for 5 bucks at GoG.com...totally worth it. You could also pick up Freespace 2, and download gigabytes upon gigabytes of mods, enhancements, etc. because it's open source and has been for years...not much for physics though (it's awesome Kreij! I've had Freespace 2 Open for a loooong time now).

    Hmm what else...well Dirt 3 is coming soon, The Witcher 2 is out day after tomorrow.

    Champions Online, it's like some superhero comic book version of WoW.
