    Left 4 Dead can be very addicting, but I've noticed that only awesome people can get into it. Team Fortress 2 is pretty fun too.

    unreal tournament 3

    -FPS
    -Cause its really fun and I got hooked to it even before the patch came out and I thought it was addicting.
    -Yes there is and its also really fun/ frustrating cause everyones so good but if you played fairly fast paced FPS games then this shouldnt be a problem

    Theres more but Ill update it later, im just really tired

    just play Modern Warfare 1 until your head bursts. Im on my 5 time already :p

    Otherwise, I agree with Shadowfold, Left 4 Dead is full of awesomeness, think of Resident Evil on speed! Just be careful of the witch

    I would agree. Left 4 Dead is one of the best games I have played since Fallout 3. I am hopelessly addicted to it now, losing hours of sleep every night. Its simple and straight forward, but rewarding ans steam makes it easy too hook up with people to play.

    Does it have to be new? If not necessarily:

    Hitman Blood Money
    type: Assassin game... umm third person kill game sort of
    why: Because it still looks good and has the famous "one more try, this time I make it for sure" feature.
    online play: Not sure, but most probably not.

    CORRECTSHUN!

    Far Cry 2 is Boring as fuck

    FPS
    Graphics are utterly Stunning
    Yes, there is online play.

    But I will repeat, FARCRY2 is the most incredible bore of a game ever although it is a nice for a while driving around and taking in all the stunning visuals, witnessing the physics effects, and of course the fantastic atmosphere that the game sets. All departments in the dev team done their job fantastically well except perhaps the 'gameplay design' people who have left us with a mere repetative 'go and fetch' kind of game. It might even be bearable if it were not for the necessity to hunt for diamond cases with that godawful stupid bleeping device.......about as much fun (or equally irritating as) threading needles.

    If I were you, I would take a break from FPS'ers and play a good RTS game for awhile.
    My suggestion;

    Sins of a Solar Empire w/ Entrenchment Expansion
    Type : Space RTS
    Why : Epic real-time space battles. Expansion includes outstanding additions like space stations, mine fields, more defense options etc. etc.
    On-line : Yes, or SP if you prefer.

    Lovely graphics and you get to kill whole armies of enemy! Why just do one at a time when you can wipe out 5000 in 10 minutes :rockout: On top of that, it's clever, strategic and tactical all in one.
    Not played multiplayer yet as I have only had the game 10 days and I like to finish single player (so I am half decent) before I go on to multiplayer.

    L4D is good but it doesn't last long before it gets boring. Its all the same thing. Kill one zombie, move onto the next.

    The story isnt very good either.

    There is no story.. And I guess I only like it because I usually play with my best friends and it's only fun if you have a mic and know who you're playing with. I almost have 300 hours clocked on it, and I'm still playing almost everyday. :)

    Prototype

    -Third Person Action Adventure?
    -Because it is fun as hell! Running around destroying shit, picking up cars and throwing them at groups of people, fighing army bases, running past soldiers and grabing them, then kneeing them in the face and consuming them for health...plus with all the chanllenges, it really can consume a lot of time, especially if you really want to buy all the upgrades.
    -Nope

    Well - Thats what I mean. There is no story - It might of been better if they had added one....One which you could take different paths on.....

    I agree with you about the online play. I'm often playing with friends on Survival mode and speaking through Skype - That can be a lot of fun, but yet again - It easly gets boring.

    Why do you need a game just because Modern Warfare 2 isnt out? Why? Im not even going to talk about Modern Warfare let just say i am one of the only people who wasn't that impressed, although maybe because i am one of the few that loved the original.

    name:Oblivion
    type:Action RPG First/Third person
    why:Oblivion dosnt need reasons FINE MODS fecking millions of em
    online play:co op would be cool but multiplayer woulnt work it would be like an MMO but not really, just thousands of player roaming the singleplayer map and how would quests work? not like co op where you'd do the same quests?

    SoaSE is nothing like WingCommander.
    It's a 4X RTS (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate).
    You control massive fleets, not fly a single space ship.

    Counterstrike: source is always good, and TF:2. Other games are portal, the HL series, Black & White 2, FEAR, Fallout 3 - all good time burners.
  25. kyle2020 Guest

    Oh and any version of peggle is as addicting as crack.
