Lads and lassies,
I was thinking about picking up a PC game tonight to play over the weekend.
Is there anything really GOOD these days? My last purchases having been Doom 3, Half Life 2 and Flat Out, it’s difficult to know where to turn.
Traditionally, I’ve been a FPS gamer, but might migrate if someone could suggest something really convincing….
What about Full Spectrum Warrior (although not strictly a FPS) – how did that translate to the PC?
Men of Valour?
Any other good war-games? Ideas?

go old school with Deus Ex, half life, and thief 2 or system shock 2
No One Lives Forever is good too

Maybe I’ll pull out my copy off Kick-Off 2 while I’m there.

Has it really come to this?
Old-school titles, mods and public domain games?
Where’s the latest shiny new thing?

if you want new a shiny get call of duty
but u should not over look cool old games, old classic are still a hell of a lot better than some of the top 10 sellers we have now… marthon is a pure classic

I agree DarkSaviour, but surely most self-respecting game afficionados (i.e. pretentious snobs like me) have covered most of this ground the first time around (although I confess to not having played Marathon)…
And, more to the point, how can anything old be ‘good’ if it doesn’t have real-time particle generation, normal mapping, dynamic lighting and rag-doll physics? Eh?

Not an FPS and don’t even know if it’s out yet, but GTR pushes all my buttons at the moment. If it’s not out yet, get the demo (what I’m using), there’s enough to tnker with for a fair few hours.

Well, I downloaded playable SP demos of GTR, Men of Valor Galactic Commandos (mod for BF 1942), and Full Spectrum Warrior.
Long live Broadband!

I just got Rome: Total War at the weekend. Only played it for about 2 hours so far and really loving it.
There are a lot of improvements on the first two, which were amazing games themselves.
The best improvement I’ve found so far is the fact that you can move your armies more tactically around the strategic map, that way you can attack armies from better directions, ambush them etc.
Also the battles themselves are massive and they are much more cinematic and dynamic.
