Okay, apparently none of my posts last night worked, so here goes.
I am upgrading to a new PC and was wondering if anyone had recommendations on the best FPS and flight sim available today. I have been out of the game market for a while since my current PC is so awful it can't really run anything (ever tried playing Counter Strike at 10 frames per second - not fun!).
Yeah I agree MOHAA is a good one. UT2k3 is pretty fun too. And I've seen Max Payne for CHEAP recently, plus the Serious Sams are cheap.....still waiting on Doom3 and DeusEx 2 though. Others to consider are Return to Castle Wolfenstein, No One Lives Forever 1/2, and Jedi Knight II.
Flight sims I have little idea about. IL-2 Sturmovik is a WWII combat sim that was well-received, although I'm sure the latest MS Flight Sim is excellent too.
I've not played it yet but isn't Battlefield 1942 a combination of both?
Here we go! Medal of Honor Allied Assult,Aliens and Predator 2,IL-2 Sturmovik...flight sim WW2,Return to Castle Wolfenstein,Mafia...great! Other good recent games are Clive Barkers Undying,American McGees Alice,Deus Ex,System Shock 2,Soldier of Fortune 2..good multiplayer.
These are all a good start.Mafia demands a fast sys with a pretty good vid card to ramp up all graphics options,GF4 Ti4200 128ddr or better.
Go to Gamespot.com and download the demos and see if they meet your style before buying!Enjoy!

I am looking forward to Unreal 2 The Awakening coming out in January. It is built on the new Unreal engine, same engine as UT2003, and should be good if they can keep with their name. I've seen some preview clips and movies from it and it looks absolutely incredible.

Only the ones with green squares beside the titles can be downloaded though. Just so you don't think that you can actually download No One Lives Forever or Red Alert 2. Those are just links to info pages and web sites that carry those games.
Thanks, I don't have a lot of time right now but I'll try to get it working at some point. The main problem is figuring out how to extract the disks - they're in some sort of zip format in the download from Classic Trash, specifically, a self extracting zip of some kind that seems to crash when I run Winzip on them then click the install button. It launchs into a DOS box then crashes, so I think it's supposed to be run in DOS, I should try that. I'm running 98SE, but the sound card shouldn't be a problem, since I have a Sound Blaster AWE64, and I think I have a spare hard drive lying around which I could put DOS 6.22 on.
