    I've got the following on PC:
    COD2-Loved the single player
    Stalker: SOC- Ends up taking way too much time
    Fear+ Expansions- Loved
    Fear 2- Not got round to playing this despite having it for ages
    Supreme Commander- Good but hardly played
    Half life and HL:S- Love HL
    Guild Wars: Liked but got a bit samey
    HL:2 and the episodes- See above
    L4D- Got old very quickly
    Empire: Total War- Great
    Bioshock- Like it
    Orange Box- Brilliant
    PS3:
    LBP- Enjoyed but precision jumping drove me up the wall
    MGS4- Enjoyed but needs to be played more
    Batman: AA- Enjoying massively
    GT5 Prologue- I'm useless at this
    Haze- Mediocre
    I'd like some reccomendations on a game for him to get me, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    +1 for assasins creed 2 (and assasin's creed 1 if you've not played it yet) - that's looking to be my favourite single-player game for the christmas season. It's a shame you thought L4D got old quick, else i'd have said L4D2 in a heartbeat (have you given the L4D2 demo a shot - you may enjoy it more than 1). I know it's a little old now but i just played through mass effect 1 (from the steam sale) and boy was it good - fortunately for an "rpg" it was a well paced storyline which i was able to blast through in a couple of 3 days without getting frustrated by any parts being too hard, although i can't see myself going back to ME again for a while now i've done it..

    PC Games I like for various reason:
    Borderlands
    Dragon Age: Origins
    Trine
    Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood
    Force Unleashed
    World of Goo

    I am participating in the boycott so F$^% CoD:MW2. I will not pay $60.00 for minor upgrades and a short Single player campaign.

    Did you like the SimCity games? If so, you might like Tropico 3.

    Prototype


    Maybe wait a few months for Mass Effect 2. If you don't have Mass Effect, you can get that one for pretty cheap these days.

    If you like RPGs, maybe consider The Witcher: Enhanced Edition.


    Mafia II is also coming out soon. If you haven't played Mafia, that's one to look at too.

    You like RPG, maybe you would like Dragon Age: Origin.

    yeah i know Dragon Age : origin, but since the publisher was EA, i'm afraid they will inject some nasty DRM to my PC (just like they did in spore)

    Mafia was a 3rd person action game. Mafia II isn't likely to change that. Think GTA3, circa 1930-1940.


    EA pratically owns Bioware so if you want the gems Bioware produces, you'll have to put up with EA. I feel your pain. :(

    Dragon Age has none of the real nasty DRM they have a rather tame version of securom i believe much like oblvion etc so no big deal

    owh, now i remember, i see mafia II have a bad rating in gamespot, so i didn't bother it.



    yeah it's kind suck, because i really want to play it (and COD:MW 2) but the publisher really pissed me off

    i really hope SE (square enix) can enter PC game completely and bring FF13 to the PC

    EDIT : are you sure dragon age : origin didn't have those nasty DRM (because i really HATE DRM)

    It wouldn't surprise me. It will be damn near impossible to reach the degree of perfection that is Mafia again. The era of quality PC games that Mafia was born in (1985-2003) has long passed. :(


    Square is in Sony's pocket and long has been. The last Final Fantasy game
    (XI) to reach the PC was back in 2002-2003. XII was PS2 exclusive and XIII will most likely be PS3 exclusive.


    The only thing dirty about it is the DLCs. There could be install limits but I don't know. Spore had SecuROM and every EA game released in the last few years had SecuROM as well. EA added the install limit to Spore and a few other titles but they quickly retracted that tactic after the public dissent over it.

    If u like football games...

    ProEvo 2010 is fantastic this year (despite various shortcomings). I would recommend that for PC as you can mod all your kits and crowd chants etc.

    Other than that, Risen on PC is a fantastic RPG if you like that sort of thing. Way way better than any Oblivion or Mass Effect, both of which I thought were utter crap.

    Borderlands is fun
    I'm going to pick up Dragon Age when I see it on sale, and maybe Assassins Creed 2 even though I never played the first one.

    Fallout 3 GOTY edition PC is a great choice. Many hours of gameplay in that package.

    AC has its moments but the action is broken and inconsistent.
