Hey all.

For those who haven't seen my posts before, I am in the process of buying parts towards building my first gaming PC.
Apart from BF3 and MW3, I haven't really got a lot of games listed because I really don't know many. I don't watch heaps of TV and I really don't know what games are out there at the moment.

I am mainly interested in playing online FPS games, so apart from Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty, what else is out there?

My specs are going to be ASRock Z77 Extreme4, i5-3570k & GTX 670.

Please help me find more games to play! Thanks.

Along with all the others that have been mentioned, i like the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, they're not as polished as most games but the atmosphere created by the lighting, sound effects make it brilliant. Think of a post apocalyptic FPS/RPG that makes you scared playing alone in a dark room!

Here's a few more good games that haven't been mentioned:

Aliens Vs Predator (2010 version)
Bioshock 1 & 2 (great story and atmosphere)
Dead Island (good zombie mashing action rpg fps)
Far Cry 2 (though respawns can be annoying)
Deus Ex Human Revolution (focus more on story with rpg elements)
Half-life 2 + Episodes 1 & 2 (one of the greatest, and still holds up today)
Portal 1 & 2 (puzzler FPS with great story and humour)
Sniper Elite V2 (good sniping)

Red Orchestra 2 is great. A WW2 shooter based on the battle of Stalingrad with a focus on realism.

I have some guest passes for it if you want to give it a go so add me on Steam (evilsooty999) and I'll send you one.



RO2 is cool, I picked it up for £6 off Steam last week :)

Try
Medal of honor
Crysis
Call of jaurez (the spelling might be wrong)
Max Payne 3
Mass effect 1,2,3(play them in a flow by continuing from the save files of the previous one)

Good games but none of them are online fps, except fot AvP, and I highly doubt the multiplayer is still active anymore.

I would agree with Khalan on Bioshock 1 and 2. Two of the greatest games i've played.

No need to apologize :) . It would seem you're not the only one who missed that bit. You suggested some great games, I just didn't want the OP to think that they where online FPS games.

free to play Blacklight Retribution, great game, CoD style with a few modern twists and very doable without needing to pay anything. also f2p quakelive.com, good ol' Q3A in your browser. F2P, but kind of pushing for $25/y subscription. also .. it's hard.
