    I think you guys should try Mafia..it's a good experience plus it is one of most difficult games to play, you will need to spend more time on it.

    Morrowind is a nice refresher.. So much freedom and such an expansive world for single player! Freedom force was a cool idea and quite a different game. I enjoy StarTrek: Bridge Commander too, which may not seem very innovative game, but I can say nothing exactly like it has been done that I know of.

    There are a number of games out there that are innovative, but most of them are not. I agree. There are still a few good games that come out from time to time though, but many are rehashes that bank on the success of their successful brother.

    I concur Rick,

    Also, a few of the forum members were gaga over morrowind this last summer. Games with loads of graphics, that require cutting edge memory and computing power will have to wait until I'm ready to upgrade my desktop.

    That said, I will be looking at both Star Wars Galaxy as well as Bridge Commander. I would like very much to learn to enjoy other games besides first person shooters.

    Games I recommend

    My reccomendation would be - Giants: Citizen Kabuto

    This is a favourite of mine. It's very funny and a very different type of fps. Kind of 3 games in one because you can play 3 different characters and stories.

    It's quite old now, but was highly acclaimed by all the magazines back when it was relesed, thats what led me to buy it, and i wasnt dissapointed.

    Funnily enough it didnt take off with regards to sales, so ide say you could pick it up pretty cheap now.

    Quite demanding system spec for its age, so make sure your system is fairly well prepared if you buy it! (800mhz CPU, 32 meg Grphics at least)


    Also like Vehementi, I am a fan of Max Payne. Intelligent Storyline, fantastic visuals & Bullet Time feature thrown in for good measure. Almost a perfect game IMHO.

    If you liked Max Payne, try out Bloodrayne (search for bloodraynedemo.zup at www.filemirrors.com ).
    Very similar styling. Has a Dialated Perspective mode which works like Bullet Time and several other interesting features. In general its more frantic action than Max Payne though. Its a cross of Soul Reaver, Max Payne and RTCW...
    You get to jump on enemies and suck the life out of them while using them as human shields. Great amount of fun to be had in this game!!.. Very gorey too, with lots of dismemberment...

    Re: Games I recommend

    What I especially love is the in game cutscenes, the dark, noir comics. They kick. I loved that game.

    I recieved Operation Flashpoint GOTY Edition for Christmas & I have to say that it's really, really, really good. Graphics are OK but even with the new textures & all, it's still way under a game like BF1942 for example but the game itself is worth it. If you have a very good sound system ( or even with earphones ), you'll be popping out of your chair when your hear bullets touch the ground right beside you.:grinthumb

    Another really cool game is Hitman2. I've been paying it since this Monday & I can't get enough of it. Right now, the CD stays in my CDRom 24/7. For every mission, there are a bunch of different ways of reaching the goals ( a bit like Deus EX ). It's not too hardware intensive too. I'm playing it in 1600*1200 ( all options at full ), it runs smoothly & looks very good.
