Racing: NFS Most Wanted, Hot Pursuit 2, Underground 1 & 2, Midtown Madness 1 & 2
RPGs: Oblivion, Avernum 1, 2, 3, Blades of Avernum (yes, they're all trial versions and very old, but they're still very enjoyable)

if its that bad ill just consider the mod a patch lol

I've played Counter Strike: Source for 5 years now and I'm still playing it and having fun. People make so many great mods for the game so it's like 10 games in one. Team Fortress 2 is free to play so might as well check that out because it is a very good game. I'd also recommend Half Life 2 purely because it's one of those "standards" like super mario brothers (and because I love valve). The original Bioshock is a pretty amazing experience. The total war games are great RTS games. I've been playing Shogun 2: Total War and I've had a blast. Haven't played many older games but Hitman: Blood Money was good despite being old. What kind of genre are you interested in?

I want to say mass effects, but I actually don't think that they are that good, get them cheap on steam when they are on sale.
Witcher 1 is good, witcher 2 is so different that I struggle to like it, or its on too hard a setting.

Team Fortress 2 (free to play on Steam)

BF3 - best multiplayer shooter out there imo

Crysis 2 (if you're into singleplayer shooters, and can get it cheap)


Dirt 3


Blur (Awesome both LAN and via interwebs)


The Elder Scrolls - Skyrim

For a combination of both racing and shooters: Mafia 2 and GTA 4
January 19, 2012 10:54:35 AM

I forgot one in my last reply.
GTA San Andreas.
