    In 2010, after purchasing Mass Effect (1) in late 2009, from the local gaming-guru, I was so satisfied with it that I wanted to play the sequel as well. I had been a regular customer at the guru's since 2006, thus the guru considered me a good customer. Alas, after ordering ME2, it got delayed for four weeks! And in order to keep me satisfied as a regular customer, I got a 99% discount on the following bundle:

    Mass Effect 2
    Fallout 3
    Prince of Persia (2010)

    Felt good.
    Loved (still love) all of those - but it took me 5 months to figure out how to even start ME2 (look up "-nomoviestartup ME2" on Google - and you'll know what I mean), and my sound card does not support Prototype - thus I do not have any audio at all when playing it...

    Prototype has a lot of sound card problems. Basically, if you don't go Creative X-Fi, you don't get full support in games.

    Borderlands is a great game and the DLC or the GOTY version is a must.

    I've been getting some great deals off of Steam. Oblivion is 10 dollars now, got it at 15 dollars unfortunately. BFBC2 for $6.50 was utterly awesome. I'm driven to get to lvl 50 now. GTA IV complete series is $10. UT series is $15.

    All time for me would include Super Mario Bros. 3, Legend of Zelda on NES. Strider on Genesis. The king is probably Super Metroid on SNES.

    Oh yeah, some nice taste there matey.

    Hmm..Speaking of Genesis, i'll bet nobody played Starflight for the Genesis here on Techspot eh?. Caw, that was a great game, the time i spent on that as a kid was crazy.

    Definately one of my top games ever.

    In terms of money-time value, it has to be:

    World of Warcraft
    Championship Manager

    Last year, the game that held my attention the most was Dirt 2 (even with the annoying *****s crashers in the full-contact online circuit races).

    Hello there,

    I have purchased a lot of games since my first game Project IGI. There are a lot of collections of games such as Total Overdose, need for speed (3 series), godfather2 etc. I also purchased recently World of warcraft which is a role playing game. With that I have purchased an ultimate game card. The UGC is for playing online games.

    - Chris.

    The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
    Baldur's Gate II
    Neverwinter Nights (and expansions)
    Neverwinter Nights II (and expansions)

    Just personal opinion, but I think Neverwinter Nights is just about the best RPG ever. I'd be thrilled to find another RPG comparable to it or to Oblivion. Any thoughts?

    I wanted to get NW2 Complete when it was on sale for $10 on Steam but my "trial" version ran @ 30 FPS in the first town on my current rig and that is unacceptable. I'll stick to WoW and Oblivion if it is going to run that way.

    Bought WoW and all expansions BTW, but haven't gotten to play it but a little yet, relatively speaking. I have a level 46 Human Pally ATM with other low level alts.
