Hey everyone,

I just recently beat a couple of games on my pc and i am now officially out of games to play and am looking for another to purchase but i am not sure what to get....

favourite games:
Mass Effect 2
Fallout 3
Portal 2
Dragon Age origins
Mafia 2
Dawn of War II
Crysis 2

other games i own:
just cause 2
arkham asylum
BF2
Black ops
crysis
crysis warhead
Fallout New Vegas
Medal of Honour
Metro 2033


Im kinda stumped on what game to get next and ive been looking at the witcher 2, lost planet 2, dragon age 2, and starcraft 2 but am not sure which one to get first, they all seem to have their ups and downs and i cant decide which one...

i was hoping to hear some feedback from people who have played those games and what they thought of them and i would also like to hear any other opinions on some other games i might like

thanks in advance :)

I would recommend StarCraft 2 very highly, but looking at your current crop of games, you don't seem to be much of an RTS gamer.

I'd say Starcraft 2 will last you longer among the 3.

Campaign in SC2 is fairly short, but depending on how big you are into the multiplayer that can last you nearly endless hours.

The map creator in SC2 is impressive, and there are new and better maps out week-to-week.

RTS lasts forever. My friends and I still play AOE II sometimes and that game was released over a decade ago.

You're sources aren't wrong. Red Dead redemption is only a console exclusive. Good thing they're at least releasing LA Noire for PC. I just hope they do the coding right.

Go for Starcraft 2 man, even though you're a frequent FPS player you should try playing SC2 cause not only it has been developed by a great company(Blizzard) and received tons of recognition for it's great storyline, graphics, gameplay, etc. You'll also be able to play 26 missions throughout which will last you very long. :D

I wouldn't say the learning curve of SC2 is steep at all. As OP mentioned, he does have some RTS experience. The basics mechanics are easy to learn. It's harder to master it than to learn it though....

so you are into FPS games and you own metro? I recommend amnesia if you truly want to feel fear and see incredible designs. for strategy, dawn of war 2 retribution and Shogun 2 will suffice for at least a month. Especially shogun.. man that game is a masterpiece.

I loved Amnesia. But many people who are into Horror FPSs', would feel a bit annoyed that they can't shoot the monsters with a gun or so.

The point is, Amnesia is great no matter what. If people want to complain that the mechanics are dumb.... then go pound some sand. Its a great game with great pacing

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

Massive game world, great atmosphere, hundreds of hours of content, sandbox style, open world game with hundreds of NPCs make you feel like you're actually in a living, breathing fantasy world. I'd go so far as to say that it set the precedent on modern fantasy RPGs. Average reviewer score was 9/10. Also has an excellent modding community, so you can hardly ever run out of content with this game (not that it'd be easy to run out even without mods.) Freedom, lore, religion, joinable cults, shops, day/night cycle with unique events happening at unique times, magic, epic quests and that oh-so-slightly robotic voice acting that we all know and love :p  Plus the DLC "The Shivering Isles" is just brilliant. Become a warrior, a knight, a count, a ruthless assassin, shadowy theif, powerful arch-mage, deadly necromancer, a vampire, or just a casual explorer, or even all of the above - in this game, you can do pretty much anything.

Honestly, Oblivion is a game that every single gamer should at least try, even if you dislike fantasy RPGs.

Just my two cents,

-Nih
Try it.

^+1 for Amnesia: the Dark Descent.

Honestly, that's one of those games that is so jumpy, especially in the earlier levels when everything's still new and mysterious :p 

As for Shogun 2, it's good, but I wouldn't say it's the best game ever :)  It has strong mechanics, and some replayability but after your 3rd or 4th time it can get a bit repetitive.

by the way mate, full name of the game is amnesia: the dark descent. doesn't have the best graphics but one of the last of its kind. (personally they totally screwed up at fear series-sorry for the language i cant find any suitable things to say-) so i think you should really try it.
