I played each Halo start to finish about 30 times each. I'd play until I was breezing entire levels on LEGENDARY with no deaths.

Half Life 2, Quake 4, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Rainbow Six Vegas 1 and 2. Granted, these are all FPSs

OK, initial game order ended up as:

Amnesia-The Dark Descent
Portal
Half Life 2 entire franchise
Team Fortress 2 (freebie)
Dead Space
Bioshock

Total game investment $35. There are advantages to coming into this late. Should keep me busy for some time.

decent list. I love dead space and bioshock, some f*cked up games. team fortress is useless w/o an internet connection. HL2 was great for it's time, but kinda dated now, Portal is a must play, but you can finish it fast. Still think you need to get one of the mass effect or kotor games.

Far Cry 2, solely for the amazing scenery, never-loading maps and nice selection of weapons (the AS-50 is badass)

that's a good one too, maintaining cars and weapons was super annoying though.

Also, no matter how hurt you are, just pull the bullets out of your wrist and your good as new

Crysis 2 is pretty good, and pretty, if your computer is built to those specs. But ultimately, it was made for the multiplayer, so the single player is limited, though I have played through several times.

Really aren't many newer single player PC games I can suggest aside from ones already listed. Plenty of fun older ones though. I'm a big fan of wasting away hours playing sim games. Civ4, old Alpha Centauri, or really anything Sid Meier created.

This, times 4. Also, if you're into platforming, bit.trip runner and super meat boy are pretty good.

I almost forgot, FarCry and Crysis also have good single player campaigns.

Completed Portal tonight. Didn't know what to really expect. Back in my day you played games that never ended until you ran out of lives. There was no "end".

Bittersweet, I guess.

Been playing the ---- out of Civilization 5. I cannot be stopped! Nothing as satisfying as nuking the ---- out of Gandhi. I had riflemen in the 1400's, nukes by the american revolution. I was a bit ahead of my time. About to start the space race around the civil war era. I can roll up on foreign soil in my single mechanized infantry unit and conquer city after city, fighting archers and cavalry soldiers.

Buy the Orange box, you will not regret it. The Half Life 2 episodes and Portal will keep you entertained for their entire duration. Then you can pick up Portal 2.
The Left 4 Dead games are great, but not so great single player. The bot AI is decent but so much of the games motivation comes from playing with other people.

Then from Bethesda you have Fallout and the Elder Scrolls. Very good, and offers a ton of length if you get into it.

The first Bioshock is amazing and the 2nd is pretty good as well.

Anything else I can recommend as highly as those games will probably be on the the Playstation/Playstation 2 and be a geeky RPG that none of you have heard of, so Ill just leave it at that.

EDIT:
I should have read the damn thread before posting :/

I highly doubt that.



Yo OP, check to see if they released Demon's Souls and Dark Souls on the PC. I've easily put 200 hours or so into Demon's Souls. It's one of the most pure and hardcore gaming experiences ever. No hand holding in those games.
