Hi guys, I've recently started out with PC gaming as I never used to have a computer good enough to run games. Now that I have, I've got myself a Steam account and WoW and am really starting to enjoy it more than console gaming. I was just wondering whether anyone could recommend some reasonably priced games that stood out of them. I have got Alien Swarm and Orange Box from Steam already.
Call of Duty Series.....a MUST play! 4 and 6 are expensive though, but definitely worth it!
Battle Field 2 Bad Company 2
Aliens v. Predators
Left 4 Dead 2........endless hours of online multiplayer
Dead Space 1 AND 2.....horror genre, well worth it!
While PC has many games that are on Console that you may have already played. The PC experience for the same games is just different.
While i wont recommend Call of duty because its just the same rehashed game every year.
I would strongly recommend you pick up BC2 when its on discount on Steam (it was up for sale this holiday for a mere 7usd i think). The PC version is just a different expereince then console. Not only does the game look good, the PC community it self is more mature then the console crowd. People Work much better in PC MP then in console where everyone tries to go rambo. Which is the reason why recently Dice claimed PC users had the fastest collective actions of any platforms, meaning there is alot more team work on the PC platform then on console, hence the experience of playing is much different.
I would recommend you should get Metro 2033 if you want to see a graphically intense game and want a story thats a blast to enjoy. This was also up for discount on steam for 5usd.
Dragon age origins is another game which is just different on PC then on console. Even if you have played the console version the PC version will blow you away. In console its a hack and slash game on PC its a strategic RPG.
If you are willing to try RTS then i would recommend you play Warcraft 3, the game will just blow yo away. its still by far one of the best RTS game out there, even with starcraft 2 released.
Thanks guys, thats been really helpful .. I've heard that Amnesia is a good game from other people, as well as Audiosurf so im going to get those. Ill also look into BC2 because I enjoyed playing it on 360 due to things such as bullet drop with snipers.
