Hellooo

I am looking for advice. I have recently, sort of, moved out and become indepedant (thank god), but now I am down on an Xbox 360 (which I couldn't take off my brother without breaking his heart bless him ), and I am left with a Laptop and a PS2. Now my question is this....

What are some continually good games for PC?

Ones that don't get boring very easily and are nearly always fun to play. Modern Warfare 2 and Assassins Creed 2 are already on my list to buy when I have the money.

I also thought this would be an interesting conversation piece, so, enjoy!

I'd say Half Life 2 is still worth buying. Get the Orange Box edition as it has loads of other stuff on it too.

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood. Western stuff. Really good fun. Not complex but if you fancy youself an outlaw, it's just great entertainment.

Rome: Total War if you want your strategy challenging and your battles huge.

That's a starter for you...

Thanks James Smile

Good suggestions, and I actually have Rome: Total War, acquired it after watching time commanders, trying to prove that I wasn't as stupid as some of the people on the show. Although currently I have Medival 2 Total War installed Smile

Good idea Thraun Smile

Actually I played it for a few years until about 6 months ago when I decided to focus on my apprenticeship. But now I've got into the swing of it I might rejoin lol must have read my mind since I went through the legnthy installing process last night Smile still running the latest update this morning lol

Neverwinter Nights is always a good one. I also really enjoy Fable, but that really depends on how you prefer your controls cos I actually prefer it on a console to PC, but it's still a good one to go for.
I've recently started playing Mount and Blade which is a very open narrative and allows you to pretty much choose everything you want to do.
Battles do tend to be broken down a tad, but it's a very good cause and effect game. If you lose your battle, you can't go back to fix it.
It's actually done on a pretty big scale and you can pledge allegiance to kingdoms if you so wish. It's also pretty addictive.
