    Which ones you liked the most?

    From what I played, my tops would be:

    1. Fallout (3 and New Vegas)
    2. Dead space
    3. Half life (especially HL2)
    4. Borderlands
    5. Halo
    6. Unreal
    7. Crysis
    8. Quake (4 and enemy territory)
    9. Gear of war
    10. system shock (maybe it could move up, I did not play much)

    oh and I'm sure I'd like bioshock and mass effect... did not try them (video card too shitty :))

    If you ever get a better video card, definitely play bioshock and mass effect. Mass Effect quickly became one of my all time favourite games. I don't like bioshock as much as Mass Effect and only played the first bioshock. My other favourite sci-fi shooters are

    Wolfenstein
    Return to Castle Wolfenstein
    Duke Nukem
    Doom

    ... basically any game by Id. I bought the Id Pack on steam for my mom's birthday about 4 years ago. It was like Christmas for her lol.

    A good list but two questions. 1.when you say unreal, are you including tourament into that? I bloody well hope so. And 2. No bioshock?

    Bioshock should replace halo and HL was 10 times better than HL2 imo.

    yeah... title says: series :)

    yeah, usually no games made after 2008...

    Rgerading HL... I'm kinda tired of games which start with a dude who is either in space ship or in a base and some problems starts and he's the only one to take care of it... there were just too many: HL, Halo, Doom3, System shock 2, dead space ... you name it :) Not that I don't like all these games... but it kinda gets old :)

    Bioshock 1 and 2 doesnt require that great of a vid card.

    Hell I have two old Nvidia 8800GT cards sitting in a drawer if someone wants to pay postage for them.

    What card you got?

    Wait a min... If you can run crysis, bioshock 1 and 2 wont be a problem. The new one maybe.

    Eww.. The crysis experience needs to be run in high res. The 8800GT will run it better. But. Crysis is a massive card eater. Bioshock should run no prob.

    I had the two 8800GTs in SLI and I could run crysis 1 at 1680 by 1050 res with high not extreme settings and got 40fps

    Bioshock 1 and 2 were closer to 70fps



    Edit: ok I just read my bioshock2 collectors edition box and it reccomends an nvidia 256mb nvidia 7800gt or an ati radeon X1900 25bmb. Now you would want a slightly better card. But it will play on this.

    Deus Ex, it is everything in a game that I like to see in a game. I even liked Invisible War.

    It's between Unreal and Borderlands - Fallout was good but a tad on the dare I say it depressing side, which is why I liked Borderlands I suppose.

    My tops are Halo and Star Wars Battlefronts.

    Halo had great level design and an amazing engine, plus a superb soundtrack, and Halo 3 added my holy grail of replayability, level design.

    Star Wars: Battlefronts is a game I played every day for a year and a half, and less often afterwards for another two years. I just love the epic-sized battles. It was fun to up the reinforcement count from 250 to 750.

    It had a sequel and then a prequel, it is more of a series than Borderlands.
