hi,
Till today I've been using a pretty old computer (a P4 w/ radeon 9600) that couldn't run any games that came out after 2005-2006. now I've bought a new computer (Q6600 w/ radeon 4870, notice a pattern?:) .
Now I want to complete the gap that was created and I want to play those games (got some cash I saved for the PC and haven't used). what games that came out in the 2006-today period are big hits? must play games? I've put on my list things like assasins creed, bioshock, crysis, GRiD, spore and games like that.
btw. I play all genres.
thx,
ziv :)

both stalkers were already in the list C&C I did play (didn't finish...), finished HL2 but not chapter 1 nor chapter 2, supreme commander is a good one for the list. some games I question are: lost planet (just can't remember what it was exactly but I remember I didn't get excited over it), ghost reckon,overlord?, space siege?? FEAR is also already in the list.
thx, I'm going to sleep thanks for the quick response.

Don't even think about getting Fable for the PC, it'll make you sad.

It's the buggiest piece of junk I've ever had the misfortune to install.

Assasins Creed didn't exactly grab me when I tried it out on a friends system... But I had "console" game third-person viewpoint. Maybe I missed something or didn't play it for long enough...

Hows about some old skool games that wouldn't play well on a 9600:

  • Doom 3
  • Far Cry
  • BF2/BF2142

    but will play smooth, and with max'ed quality out on 4870!! I still play them a lot myself...

    I lot of newer games send me to sleep. So much time is spent on the graphics they seem to forget to design the game...

    Turok - 2 DVDs its quite nice actually. Peeps here think too much about crysis.
    September 26, 2008 12:03:12 PM

    Battlefield 2
    For all its faults,3 years after its release, it still has more people playing than Crysis,FFOW and fear combined.
