I am getting a new pc in a couple of months and I am looking for some games that I should play these we the games I am thinking of getting so far Fallout New Vegas( I had it on Xbox but want it for the mods) Supreme commander 2 Crysis maximum edition ( More to see if it can run it) Shogun total war 2 X com enemy unknown ( Cant wait to play this game, Looks amazing) I would like some recommendations, preferably Pc exclusives and Strategy games. Thanks in advance.
Mount & Blade Warband. Its pretty fuckin janky, and kind of ugly as sin. But dear god no game does what it can, that being put you into the role of an adventurer in a truly open world, raising an army, and the best melee combat around. If you can get past the initial bullshit that comes with learning the systems and stuff what lies beneath is an incredibly deep and amazing game. And the massive amount of mods for the games doesn't hurt either.
Company of heroes is a great rts.
Starcraft is pretty good.
The Witcher games
Hard reset is kinda okay
Solar 2 is a really cool alternative sort of game
The Penny arcade RPGs were pretty fun
Magicka was very cool and unique
Machinarium was awesome, i cant imagine it costs very much
VVVVVV was great
The old Lucas arts Adventures are always a good idea, monkey island remakes etc...
Zeno Clash is a weird good one
Cryostasis is good
The Longest Jorney games are an old favorite of mine
Thats all i can think of. Look on Good old Games, there are a lot of old classics that are dirt cheap.
BF3, Witcher 1 and 2 are insane. Metro 2033, you have to try that. Deus Ex HR is pretty good. Team Fortress 2. Skyrim. Civ 5.
I forgot to mention the Day Z mod for Arma. I haven't tried it myself but everything about it seems to me fascinating. Check it out if you have the chance.
Also i hear that Sleeping Dogs looks incredible on the pc.
I'm an old timer when it comes to PC games, so if I may, I'll recommend some classics. Rome Total War, Age of Mythology, Age of Empires II and Civ 4 are the best startegy games I've played on the PC so I suggest those. Sid Meier's Pirates for the PC is awesome too. If you like squad shooters, Star Wars Republic Commando is pretty rad and Battlefield 2142 is good as well.
