I need a Game Recommendation

Postby Shai » Thu May 08, 2008 5:42 am UTC

I'm getting a new computer very soon (waiting for it to come in) and it's my first modern gaming-competent computer. If interested, link. Anyway, I'm thinking of turning to the PC for single-player gaming, and leaving my Wii for multi-player. I have my Wii for super-fun game-play, I want to see some amazing graphics on the PC. I like racing games, and GRID looks sweet. Otherwise, can you guys recommend me anything? Theme is eye candy! Thanks!!!

This is now a thread about you, the poster, wanting to play new stuff but not having a clue what's good, so you ask us for suggestions. Be as helpful as possible - tell us what you like, what you don't like, what gaming systems you have, how many board game/Pen&Paper Roleplaying people you know, that sort of thing.

If you are not actually answering someone's request for a recommendation, use this thread to give your game recommendation. Failure to do so means I will make this face. :cry:

Oh, and for the record - as we do have bots who stick their head in here from time to time, or people who can't be bothered to actually pay attention, if I see posts that are not clearly responding to someone - either by quoting the post they're replying to or continuing the flow of the immediate conversation - I'm just going to delete them from this thread. It's annoying to see someone responding to a post from two years ago without any context at all. So knock it off.

Company of Heroes. The prettiest (and most enjoyable) RTS I've seen. I totally suck at it, but blowing shit up is fun nonetheless.

Obviously Crysis is king of eye candy, being many, many miles ahead of anything else, but chances are you're not buying a computer that can really take advantage of it. And if the only console you own is a Wii, then it's time to catch up on all the PS3/360/PC multiplat blockbusters you've been missing out on.

Edit: Just saw you included a link, Jesus fuck that's an expensive rig. Probably should have bought it from some custom place, but if you've already paid then whatever. What videocard does it come with? You might be able to get your Crysis on after all.

I can't personally recommend something since my computer isn't nearly that powerful and most of my games are more gritty than pretty. However, I can direct you to the high-def videos at GameTrailers.com. You could look through there to see if there's anything you like.

There's also the top rated pc games on GameSpot, you could use that to filter down to the best looking games in your genre of choice.

Hope that helps.

Even if just the demo, you have to try Crysis.

Other than that racing is not my thing so I can't recommend you anything. Anything else you enjoy ?

I'm personally waiting for Mass Effect at the end of the month.

The page he linked doesn't say the graphics card, but I saw a similar computer (Less storage space and no Blu-Ray though) for the same price somewhere else, it came with an 8500. (Or maybe it was an 8600, I'm not sure). I wouldn't get my hopes up on it being great for eye candy gaming.

First thing you're going to want to do when you get the computer is install a fresh copy of Windows on it though, HP is really awful about flooding your computer with so much crap that reinstalling Windows is quicker than uninstalling everything they put on it.

The reason I picked this particular machine at the source is because I was able to finance it with zero interest and payments for a year. If I had the cash, I could have custom-made this machine for a few hundred less. Instead, I get a little ripped off, but with no interest, it sorta evens out. Sorta. The graphic card is NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT. CNET has specs, but I've seen slightly different versions of what ports come with the card on different sites, so that's probably not 100% accurate.

Well, I have a PS2, the Wii is my only next-gen system.

I actually really enjoyed Morrowind, and know Oblivian is the next iteration. I liked Morrowind more for the open-sandbox nature, ultimately never ended up finishing the main quest. Is Oblivian similar (as in, is it as open-ended)?

Crysis looks alright, I'll probably try the demo.

Company of Heroes is iffy for me, since I've never been a huge fan of army-based first person shooters. I figure if I'm going to save the world, I'd prefer to do it from aliens, ha. I know, I'm weird.

Mass Effect looks alright. Hmmm. Can't get everything, though. I think I may have to peruse through GameTrailers.com and GameSpot. Thanks for the input!!

For a pre-built rig, he didn't pay too much for it, thats a reasonable price for such a good machine.

Supreme commander is a good one if you like RTS games, extremely pretty, coupled with good gameplay (but high system requirements, which you have).

Try Avencast: Rise of the mage if you like diablo-clones, it also has good gameplay, and is sufficiently eye-candy heavy (much more so than most of the diablo-clone genre).

Mass effect is coming to the PC soon

Assassin's Creed just game to the PC, though it gets a bit repetitive, it does look pretty.

Sadly, racing games tend not to show up on the PC much, they're usually console games. There are a few though, but I can't think of them at the moment. Amazon.com is a good place to look for new games though.

I googled it and found the same box on circuit city. It says 8600 GT. Not bad.

Oblivion's main quest is just as optional as Morrowind's, the introductory bit to the game is slightly longer (a small dungeon to get through rather than just stepping off the boat and going through a couple of doors). There's plenty more info in the relevant thread (though there may possibly be some spoilers).

Half Life 1 and 2, and Episode 1 and 2.

Amazing game and a great way to start out FPSing, and the 8600 should be able to handle it well (It better, I have one)

Other than that, Bioshock. Great visuals and atmosphere make for a great game.

(Edit: Doh! Ninja'd! Although getting HL1 as well is highly recomended with the Orange Box.)

If you're into racing games, then I'd recommend that you get a Steam account and download Trackmania Nations Forever for free.

I'd also suggest the Orange Box (TF2 is very addicting to play).

Battlefield Heroes is coming out this summer for free, and (hopefully) BF3 should come out within the next year.

Actually it barely makes any sense regardless at first, but playing HL1 will give you a better understanding of the events that happened far before HL2. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's necessary, though.

Postby Sarr » Fri Jun 13, 2008 1:30 am UTC

I have within the last year or so, quit WoW. It, while I played it, dominated my video gaming in a big way. So my request is this. What are some good PC games that you all think I should give a try over the summer?

My rig is, admittedly, old as hell. 'Bout the newest game I run on it is Half Life 2. which runs alright, or Oblivion, which runs shittily.

Mainly I'm looking for Action/Adventure or RPGs (not JRPGS) although the occasional shooter isn't bad. So guys, whaddya say? Can you help?

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines (Uses the HL2 engine or something like, so I guess it'd run)
Arx Fatalis (Spiritual successor to the Ultima Underworld games which I'd say are also well worth playing)
Morrowind (if Oblivion runs shitty, Morrowind might run better)
Beyond Good and Evil (is about the only Action / Adventure game for the PC I can think of right now, although I've never played it)
Thief: the Dark Project (and the sequel The Metal Age and the fan campaign T2X)

NetHack. God yes.

ST, that list looks almost exactly like the list of games I'm planning to play these holidays. Freaky.

Morrowind is much more forgiving than Oblivion when it comes to graphics.

Uplink is a pretty cool hacking (read:cracking) simulation from the future.

Nethack is great.

I second Uplink. It was awesome, if somewhat short compared to my prefered game length (weeks).
I also second the Infinity Engine games (Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, and especially Planescape Torment).
Hell, I second everything. I've got lots of great stories and epic moments playing all of these games.

Okay, here's the deal: I have 60 dollars to spend on video games and I've pretty much narrowed it down to three choices ( though I am open to suggestions):

Rainbow Six Vegas + Gears of War

Call of Duty 4

Rainbow Six Vegas 2

The obvious choice would seem to be R6V1 and GoW, but... I dunno

Note: I rented GTA4 and didn't like it too much, please don't reccomend it.

If you haven't played any of those games I'd go for the first option, although CoD 4 is awesome and if you're into multiplayer it might last you a long time. Vegas has multiplayer too, but it just isn't as good as CoD 4.

KotOR 1 and 2, although 1 is better than 2 in my opinion they're both still great RPG's

If you're into RTS's at all you should try sins of a solar empire.

Psychonauts is also nice, sorta platformer/adventure type game I think it's even available on steam.

Hmm, and Jade empire too, another good RPG.
