    I currently play Counter-Strike: Source, Day of Defeat: Source, Call of Duty 2, Guild Wars, and Unreal Tournament 2004. I want to get a new game since I get tired of playing these sometimes. They're fun, but I want something new.

    Tha games that I've looked at so far are:
    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion-$49.99
    Guild Wars: Factions/Nightfall-$49.99
    Final Fantasy XI: The Vana'Diel Collection DVD Edition-$19.99 (Have to pay monthly)

    All of these games seem good to me, and they are listed from the ones I think I would like the most. I haven't played Guild Wars in a while, so I might re-play it to get used to it before I get Factions. Morrowind I haven't played in a long time, so I might re-play that too. And Final Fantasy, I haven't tried. But the reason why Final Fantasy is last is because I have to pay. Which one?

    Just saw this one too, looks good:
    Dark Messiah: Might & Magic-Not Yet Released on Steam

    Oblivion is probably the longest lasting. I would reccomend Prey.

    I know its not on the list, but Half Life 2.

    Elder Scrolls is good, but you need a beefy system to run it and make it look pretty. but boy does it look pretty.

    can't wait till portal from valve comes out. i'm saving my money for that (if it comes out for pc)

    Thanks! I was going for Oblivion too. But Guild Wars I like a lot too. Still not sure. As you can see, I'm going for RPGs, not FPS, since CS:S keeps me occupied. I'm downloading the Dark Messiah demo, checking it out.

    Already have HL:2, just don't play it anymore.

    It's hard to beat a persona in oblivion on level 28 that's got infinite invisibility spell and can literally kill most beasts with a single slash. How about killing a 10 foot tall troll with a single punch of the fist. It's also hard to imagine switching worlds and closing oblivion gates as well as going into a nature painting and saving someone trapped inside it. Or say walking in someone's dream ;)

    I've been hooked on Guild Wars Factions the last few days. I've never played WoW or the original Guilds wars but this seems very good and quite adictive, if you've played the first and liked it I'm guessing you will like Factions too. I thought Oblivion was good, but not as amazing as some people do.

    Oblivion is basicly a highly optimized Morrowind. It took every gripe about morrowind and fixed it, then they threw in a new storyline, but it's nothing groundbreaking. Just a solid RPG of the old days.

    Oblivion is Excellent and Prey is too. I am a big fan of all Final fantasy games.:)
    Not on your list but Half Life2 Episode 1 looks good.

    Played it already. For some reason, I'm done w/ FPS. I still play CS:S, DoD:S, HL2, CoD2. But I'm done getting any newer ones. Sticking w/ RPGs for now.

    All seemd great, but Oblivion and Dark Messiah are top 2 (since I want to re-beat Guild Wars first, and many still play it).
