why has F.E.A.R not made the list?
Call of Duty 2.
Probably the peak in the CoD series for MP before they started adding those ****ing perks. And you can 'feel' the weapon unlike CoD 4,5.......
actually I think it got better compared to the early 2000's but of course, it's just a matter of opinion
because its being shadowed by the **** aftertaste of F.E.A.R. 2
I agree tho, the original was superb.
I'm slowly playing through fear 2. I like it so far.
May I reccomend Company of Heroes for RTS? One of the best i've ever played
Crysis (+warhead) (still the best looking game out imo)
Stalker ( +clear sky if you enjoy the first)
TF2 (if you like mp)
Quake 4 (this is just inside the 4 years still i think)
World in Conflict
Trials2 (i think for gameplay time per £ this is the best game i've ever bought)
Penny Arcade game
Fallout 3 (worth a play just for squishing people's heads with a sledgehammer)
World of Goo
Defense Grid: The Awakening
most of these can be picked up on steam for peanuts now
Team Fortress 2
Left 4 Dead
Half-Life 2, Episode 1 & 2
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Call of Duty 5
Grand Theft Auto 4
Dawn of War 2
PC Gaming is not dead, anyone who says it is just can't face that the games they like died out long ago.
You guys are really good at sarcasm\
That was sarcasm, did you catch it?
I completely agree because i am one of those people. I believe we are partially right however because there are some kind of games that died completely. There are no games comparable to UT these days (please don't tell me Quake Live is the replacement) just like there are no games at the level of Monkey Island, right joe ?
2004 and after are the years of the MMORPG players. If you don't like this kind of gameplay then the list of game that might interest you is way shorter than it should IMO
With that said though, there are some good games that really interest me atm (I am about 8 months late however.I need to catch up)
sarcasm is usually used in a situation in which it is pretty obvious but in this case, since so many people actually think what you said, it was kind of hard to tell tbh
Very interesting thread as the last game I played WAS HL2 - since then bad health has meant i've been unable to game. Think i've finally sussed out health problems and hope to be gaming again soon. Surprised at Orange box listing as I just thought it was HL2 in a repackaging attempt' I did finish lost coast & attempted the part one of HL2 & realised I just couldn't play games anymore. But looks like I've got some good games to look forward too. Will mean a new pc as my dell optiplex not a 3-d thing
Maybe your sarcasm was just too good?
Pfft, you have Half Life 2, so you have Counter Strike, what else do you want?
+1 to the Orange Box and L4D
Competent enough list so far, but why do I not see Lego Star Wars II on here anywhere?

Seriously dude, Race 07 and GTR Evolution, if you've got a decent wheel (logitec G25) then these are where racing's at.
GRiD is fun but very arcadey and the physics are somewhat lacking, it's probably ok if you've got an Xbox360 controller or something but if you're serious about racing then you'll find GRiD to be a very shallow racer.
75% off this on steam until 11pm tonight (I bought it last night for £4.95).
DOW 2 is really good too.
im not really into simulation at all, i used to love arcade styled racing games such as NFS seris, but ever since GRiD, NFS Undercover and Burnout seems too easy.
Grid has the perfect balance between fun and frustration, that's why it's so great. Undercover and Paradise seems too easy, thus not fun
I won't agree that PC gaming has completely died because it's not like console gaming interests me. However I have to say the standard of games has definitely gone down. I can barely find a game I can paly with interest. The last one was HL2 and before that Deus Ex...
Why not go into the past and try Natural Selection. NS2 is in the works but for those of you that have not played it Natural Selection is one of the most enjoyable games I have ever played. It is a multilayer only game just like CS and also like CS is just a mod of HL. Being a mod for HL you only need HL1 to play the game! NS2 will have its own engine and will cost money, but I would gladly pay even $100 for that game!
As for recent games I would start by finishing up the HL series as far as it is gotten so far and then play though portal. If you like portal there is a free mod called portal prelude that is pretty good. Next I would move to Bioshock, I got it for $5 on sale and it is very fun. I am just drawn into the story and the atmosphere of the game. If your into rts you should try out sins, I have always wanted an awesome space rts and this game brought it, the expansion recently came out as well. If you are into small fun games try audio surf, it is fun and a different type of gaming experience. I do not know when the last time you played CS:S was but there has been a lot of changes as far as mods go. There is now quite a few different types of mod servers to play on offering a variety of games in one package and load screen!
