    I haven't bought a game in years but I think I might buy a new one for my PC. My favourite genre is 1st person shooters. I used to enjoy playing Quake2 on the PC and Goldeneye 007 on the Nintendo 64. I have been totally out of the loop in terms of games so I'm looking for someone in the know to recommend a good one to me.

    I was thinking of call of duty 4 although it might push my system a bit.Which is:

    NVDIA 7500 graphics card
    Intel 2 Core processor @ 2.13 GHz
    2 Gig Ram

    So any good first person shooters new or old it doesn't really matter
     
  2. Halo 3 i'm not sure if the pc version is out though if not Halo 2 for pc
     
  3. You'll be fine playing CoD4 with those specs, I highly recommend it too.

    I like turtles.
    I love playing games that came out like 4 or 5 years ago which I couldn't afford when I was at school.

    I highly recommend Operation Flashpoint - the graphics aren't the best (it came out in 2001) but for realism, quality of gameplay and re-playability it is brilliant. If you can find it, get the special edition that comes with both expansion packs - extends playing time massively.

    If you want something a bit different, check out the Thief series - sneak-em-up rather than shoot-up-em. Lovely lighting, especially on the most recent game.

    Also great (although not 1st person) is the Splinter Cell series.

    I don't know anything about more recent games though... :D

    cod4
    counter strike source
     
  6. Call of Duty 4.
     
  7. Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory

    Free game, with low-demands for computer power. And there's always someone online to play against.
     
  8. I'm still a fan of the original DOOM series.

    I'm also a combo whore and flak spammer newb :)

    Unreal Tournament 2004 is lots of fun, Half-Life 2, and Far Cry are modern classics. Counterstrike is fun, but it has a very high learning curve.

    Delta Force "Black Hawk Down". I enjoyed all the Delta Forde series except for "Extreme" which was completely lame. :scowl:
    Call of Duty 4 "Modern Warfare" but again all the Call of Duty series are good IMO.
     
  15. CoD4
    HL2
    CSS
    UT

    All already mentioned (i think), all great :)

    Also, Enemy Territories: Quake wars
     
  16. If you play Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, be careful...the guys on their are really good. I was decent but I kept getting chewed up, it's one of those twitch-reflex shooters.

    Awesome game!
     
  19. +1

    I loved that game, utter nonsense and great!
     
  20. Bioshock - Easily the best FPS in the past few years. Kinda hard to believe I'm the first one here to mention it.



    Half Life: Orange Box is great too.
