THats the best way to describe WoW... Lately it is way to addictive for the user (Not everyone, but there are a lot of cases kids killing them selves, or out of line with the future due to the game WoW) . . .

Day of defeat source maybe? wide variety of classes, short respawn so he wont get impatient, and nothing he wont understand about the game.

in which way do you mean this?
Kids staying at home or at Internet Cafe's playing that stupid game? Or even playing the game and you have other better things to do... This game can corrupt people and their mind, and its hard to take it away from them. They are too dedicated to the game and not realizing that its just a fantasy game, and your life is more important to keep in track/aligned and do your normal daily routine or how ever you go about full filling your day

I have used to be one of those kids, mind I am only 20, its been 2 years since last I touched the game, and wasted another 2 years on this stupid game which I could have been better in school, person life, or anything in that matter...

Warcraft only ruins peoples lives that would've been otherwise ruined by other trivial things that only idiots get addicted to. I tried WoW when I was 15, played it for a few months but it gets incredibly boring.

Okay lets forget WoW I was only throwing it out there because no-one else did. Anyway why not get him Far Cry 2 he might like that, Bioshock as well and to top it off why not see if he likes racing games like GRID but that might be risky for a present.

I'll say the same thing about that as I say about drugs: it's not the drugs, it's the individual. I mean I have read stories of people saying how sad it was their friends' lives got ruined by MARIJUANA. YEAH.RIGHT. Some loser pothead was always a loser pothead, even before he smoked pot. Just like some loser WoW player who never leaves the house was always that way, the game (drug) addiction is just a part (result?) of that personality.

lol i smoke pot all the time, but like myself and PLENTY others it doesn't ruin my life. I do ok in school(a's, b's, c's), but i know a lot of girls and a few guys that you would be like DAM BURNT OUT MOFO'S!!! but they make almost strait A's. it's just the individual as you stated if you can't control yourself from something and realize what's important and have the drive to do what you need to to progress in life then yea lol your a loser then.\

game wise, i have FC2 and i can play it, but it started to feel more like a job to play it than just out of enjoyment. I'd say TF2 but there are annoying respawn times on a lot of servers eve i get annoyed. Just to throw it out there does he like RTS's? it's old but the best RTS and unlike any other, STARCRAFT NUKKA love this game and am so siked for SC2. also does he have Unreal Tournament 3? it's a very fun fast paced FPS. I thk he would enjoy that.

man you confused me, he loves RPGs but kicked ass at crysis/warhead and got bored with fallout and oblivion? sounds to me like he loves FPSs!
That's what I thought...

I've been wracking my brain for about five minutes and I always come back to Dues Ex (rated Mature). I would say Mass Effect and The Witcher but both of those have sexual themes. Dues Ex still has some...suggestive...themes (Illuminati, NWO, things of the sort) but it is an FPS, it is pretty extensive, pretty much any modern computer can run it maxed, and it is pretty long. It even has RPG elements.

There's really no good FPS games rated Teen. But, Crysis is rated M as well so... Dues Ex and Dues Ex: Invisible War? If he's ready for a tiny bit of sexual stuff, bump him up to Mass Effect.

I bought Orange Box and I played it for a total of about 2 weeks til COD4 came out. Ditched the OB, been playing COD4 almost daily and still going strong. I have a bit of ADHD too...

+1 for the orange box. He'll have lots of fun with the mighty Half Life 2 and all the EP and TF2 for multiplayer. Portal is a nice addition too.

Until someone like me comes along and schools him six ways from Sunday in it. Quake 3 is simple but takes a LOT of technique to be good at.

I'm with FordGT on this, he does great at shooters but does not have the patience for RPGs yet loves them?
I'm confused.
RPGs are usually a lot of reading and stat and inventory manipulation (which seem to bore him).
Get him a copy of Painkiller and let him blast baddies to his hearts content.

I'll say the same thing about that as I say about drugs: it's not the drugs, it's the individual. I mean I have read stories of people saying how sad it was their friends' lives got ruined by MARIJUANA. YEAH.RIGHT. Some loser pothead was always a loser pothead, even before he smoked pot. Just like some loser WoW player who never leaves the house was always that way, the game (drug) addiction is just a part (result?) of that personality.

So what you're essentially saying is, that all people who fall victim to addictions, are natural born losers?

Well I guess you would qualify then, for how often you use your computer; and pretty much anyone else here at TPU or on the internet.

That's a really shallow attitude, and a completly foolish retort to Jakl's comment, just for the sake of wanting to have the last word.

The guy speaks from experience, and tells it how it is.
Maybe if we had more people with that courage, our kids wouldn't be turning into complete wastes of oxygen.


I, for once agree with Wiz, about Remnant. It should give him some solo action RPG oriented gameplay. There's also Dark Sector?

But if he's going online, hit him up with Demi God or Crysis Wars.
