    Default Need a new game

    With school, work, and playing shows/writing songs, I dont have very much time. But I want to pick up a game and just start playing it whenever I get a chance. Are there any games you guys would recomend?

    If you are a shooter fan, try Painkiller, been hearing some good things about it and it's now $30.

    If you have never played it, Far Cry. Theif III is alright, but I was a little dissapointed in it.

    [EDIT]: Heh, forgot the "in" between dissapointed and it.

    Yeah, Thief was not that good. I would also recommend Far Cry, or Unreal 2k4.

    Two votes for Far Cry! Trust me, it is a great game. And if your computer is especially up to it, turn up the graphics to really make it shine.

    I haven't had a chance to go out and buy Far Cry yet.

    But I've been playing Knights of the Old Republic again. I really need to suggest this to anyone who can wipe their own ass. Its a brilliant game that should rub ever gamer, no matter what genre they like, in a good way

    I didn't read it through but here's the first review I found if you're interested:
    http://pc.ign.com/articles/441/441810p1.html?fromint=1

    Right now its $30 at Best Buy and I'll assume anywhere else.

    When I played it, and got to the twist in the plot (you know what I'm talkin about ) I stopped and thought wow, not only is the gameplay great, but its got a creative storyline. Very few games have solid, thoughtout storylines.

    Also, it is worth double the replay, because you can play through as dark side and lite side.
