Well, I was hoping you guys can give me suggestions on buying a game eventualy, like in teh summer. I thought of a few so far, like
Age of mythology gold edition
Hitman Blood Money
or Call of duty war chest

If you have any other ideas plz lemme know.

BTW, my rig isn't very good, it can barely run quake 4.


k thx,

If your looking for a game to involve you the entire summer then CoD is your best option from that list.

As far as some older games that you could run I would recommend...

Battlefield 1942: The game has a load of mods and still has a fairly active community. You can grab a SP demo here.

Unreal Tournament 2004: If you've never heard of Unreal Tournament, it's a fast paced fps with a rather large mod community. Grab a demo here.

Half-Life 2: I don't know how much of an explanation this game needs. The SP is absolutely amazing. By far one of the best single player experiences I've ever had. The main reason I recommend it is because of the incredibly large mod community. There are already tons of great mods such as Garry's Mod, Goldeneye Source, and Dystopia.

Heyyo,

Out of the ones in your list I'd say COD WarChest. SP Campaign's pretty amazing, and multi player's pretty fun. I'd suggest HL2/CSS over it though since there's a good handful of mods that are enjoyable, and you can play the Hide And Seek mod for CSS. icon_biggrin.gif

I always see you guys playing that and I can never hop along ="( .

The best way to figure out what game you want, is to decide what genre you enjoy the most, then find a good gaming review site... And look at the reviews. icon_biggrin.gif . How I bought GOW... Only reason I got CnC3 was because Ive been playing that series since I was in 3rd grade.

I'd say STALKER. Just play it for a while and then restart, doing all of the quests. That ought to fill up your quest icon_razz.gif

Get a steam account with the Valve back catalouge.

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

I'd absolutely get the CoD war chest. The single player campaign in CoD and UO is just incredible, I've never played a SP shooter that immersed me as much as CoD. I'm also a huge fan of UO's multiplayer mode Base Assault. Also I'd agree with Solideath, if you've got a DVD drive, C&C: TFD is a great choice for RTS. It even includes Renegade, the FPS based in the Tiberium universe.

Why would you need a dvd-rom to run C&C? Like do you mean the C&C disk?... I don't understand icon_sad.gif

But I would say CSS/Half-Life 2 (You can get then in a pack) or the COD.

Thx 4 teh suggestions guyz.
BTW, I already have a valid steam account.
I got the CS:Source package, and the original Half life package with all the mods on it.
I wouldn't really like to order from places since I don't have a valid credit card, and I doubt my parents will let me use theirs.
I would rather buy things physically with cash.

u guyz hav been rly helpful.
ez,
H17M4N


EDIT: um... sry... I guess there shouldn't be another thread like this.

Not to sound mean or anything, but punctuation and grammatical structure would make you sound a lot more legitimate. There's nothing wrong with someone asking opinions from forum members on what games would be worth a buy. This is, after all, a community of gamers. Reviewers can quite easily be payed to write a positive or negative review of a game, and it's entirely possible that someone might not have an excellent internet connection and doesn't want to spend several hours downloading a game demo, or have a friend with a copy of the game in question. Sure these kinds of threads are common, and sifting through a few of them might not be your idea of a good time, but if you don't want to read the contents of a thread, don't click on it and you won't have to.

Oh, and By-tor, the reason you need a DVD drive for C&C The First Decade is because it's only available for retail purchase on DVD, so you wouldn't be able to install it or play it if you didn't have a DVD drive.

Minesweeper is still cool.

If you're thinking of AoM, see if you're rig can run AoE3 first, it just might be able to.

The first Call of duty was good so you should be satisfied with that.

I don't know about Hitman but I personally wouldn't buy it.

Hitman Codename47 is pretty damn good.. but Hitman Blood Money (the latest) is my fav of the series. SO well done, THIS is how next-gen games should be... no suck, just lots of kickass. If you love singleplayer games? you can't go wrong with this one. The well thought out missions, the stealthy ways to kill people or even just knock them out and hide the bodies... it's just impressive all around. Hitman Contracts sucked though.. pretty much Codename47 with 3-4 different levels.. probably why it's not in Steam with the Hitman Collection, rofl. Anywho, as I said, worth the cash, but if you're looking for a great multiplayer game, this game has none of that, so other games would better do that.
