What game to buy to try out my new "macheen", HL2, Doom3, or ???

  1. I just bought a pretty descent gaming computer, stats are:

    NZXT Nemesis Mid Tower w/Window w/400W PS - Silver
    ZALMAN Copper CNPS7000B-Cu Quiet (S462/478/754/939/940) CPU Cooler
    LG GSA-4163B Dual Layer 16X DVD+RW/-RW X40 CDRW Optical Writer -
    Western Digital RAPTOR 36.7 GB (10,000RPM) 8MB Cache - Serial-ATA
    2X 512MB OCZ DDR PC-3200 Premier - OCZ400512PH
    MSI K8N Neo4 SLI Platinum AMD Athlon64&FX PCI-X S939
    AMD Athlon64 3500+ Processor - Socket 939 Boxed (90nm)

    Now I want to buy a new game or two or three. I have RTCW and ET, Q1,2,3 of course, and Max Payne. Can't wait until Quake 4 comes out!

    I heard Half life 2 is really good, but some bad reveiws of Doom3. What about
    Splinter Cell? Or other suggestions please. I'm 43 and a half and going on 12 again!

    F.E.A.R. is probably one of the most demanding ones out (or soon to be out). Don't forget FarCry either.

    Yes of course I forgot about FarCry, that's perfect. Thanks Didou.
    F.E.A.R, I've never heard of it, but will look out for that too.

    Half Life 2 IS a good game provided you can get past the lengthy installation and authentication process. I didn't have significant trouble on my 56K connection but it did take a couple of hours out of my life. I have the retail CD version. Despite that, I do recommend the game.

    I think the question should be, Space Invaders or Pacman! ;-)

    Far Cry, avoid Doom 3 & Half-Life 2.

    avoid HL2? no way.

    oke seriously did you ever play it?
    Its a very good game, love the part where you can call up the little sand crawlers.
    Never played doom 3 but allot of ppl say its really not that good.

    F.E.A.R. = awsome freaky game, graphics are :O.

    I think you should try one of the latest games for the most demanding Graphics.......Like BF2. It rocks!!
    I'm looking forward to new Quake. I'll bet it will have some damanding graphics.
