    Default Game recommendation for all

    Hi! I haven't bought new games much in the last years, like 10 years or so. I bought them all the time previously. But, I'd like someone to recommend a game for me. Actually, I think we all can share our recommendations, given what each person wants

    -I play warcraft 3 a lot! almost entirely team games. It's an incredibly great game with perfectly fine-tuned balance, giving strategical opportunity, teamwork and a social element.
    -bought Max Payne 2 for the cinematic story, the mood and the graphics. I wasn't disappointed.
    -bought Doom III as it was the last installation of the doom series, which changed the world.. and which I played tirelessly. Both doom I and doom II. These are the most devastating games EVER, period. Doom II was "more of the same" thing, but.. it really, really sucked me in to it's world. I have never ever been so much in a game as then.
    -Unreal, back in the 1997 I believe. It had - for the time - incredible, awesome, mind-boggling alien graphics, mood, and of course shooting. It was more of a mellow mood, sometimes slightly troubling mood, but in an artistic, fantastic fashion. Doom was rather frightening as a comparison.
    -WoW. It sucked me in for a year. Too repetitive for me, I ended up using bots to play for me.. and 5-boxing, playing with 5 at a time. It required too little of an innovation and too much of categorizing stuff, listing it, comparing, all terrible Si stuff which I did, because I loved the game. But. It isn't the best game for me.
    -Command and Conquer. Incredible series. I loved the tech trees.. their predecessor, Dune II, was a strategic marvel of it's time. Just astounding. I organized lan parties for my friends to play the first C&C.
    -Descent. There's never been a game like this in my life. True 3d movement - forward, backward, up, down, slide left & right, pitch, roll, yaw. I was extremely adept with the movement system, there is NO OTHER GAME in the world that excited my physical coordination and 3d-understanding that much. It was a journey to another world.
    -Civilization I and IV, not the other games. Being a part of epic story that develops right in front of my eyes. Diplomacy, resource allocation, warfare, many strategical layers. Awesome. Just that I don't feel I have the time to learn the whole game (CIV IV) to such extreme extent as I learned CIV I.

    So what you'd recommend for me? Almost all the games I have loved are big name games, with extremely high production values. If some game is a bit lacking - i.e. not the best one could have at a time - it's most probable I won't like it. Even though I sometimes do play some sub-par games.

    Total War: Medieval 2- and its expansions, well worth it. Also there is a lot of user-created mods that are just top of the line (Stainless mod is great)

    Supreme Commander- If you are tired of small squad based tactics give this a try, very different, very fun, and very rewarding. HUGE HUGE maps.

    Dawn of War- Small tactics based RTS, refreshing change from starcraft/warcraft with a lot of playable races. Not really a good single player RTS, and it has a pretty big hurdle to play online as well but once you find your groove it can be fun.

    Are you just checking out PC games? Or do you game on consoles too?
    ...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    I've heard recommendations for both Supremo Commander and Mass Effect, too, so I guess they're great! I'll check some of the others.

    It's sad how I have to play FPS in the easy setting now, if I want to finish them in reasonable time. If it's normal, there's many deaths and hard parts, though more excitement. But, more frustration, at times.

    Production values as a a way to objectify art... And they still ask me what it is I hate about TJs...

    Seems you like FPS and strategy games for PC.

    The only FPS I actually like is Bioshock, and based on what you've said above I think you'd like it too. It's been a while since I've played a strategy game on a PC, but I really liked the Total War series and Heroes of Might and Magic series (but I think that one has been discontinued for a while). On other systems I like these strategy/tactics games: Advance Wars (Nintendo DS), Final Fantasy Tactics (PSP) and Valkyria Chronicles (PS3).

    Diablo II with expansion. It's almost a decade old and there are still a lot of players online. I'm still playing it.

    If only I would have recorded the hours I spent on it. The time would be immense!

    What about Simcity 3000 and Age of Empires II?

    I'm likely to buy a console for the single purpose of playing Brutal Legend. I haven't seen any reviews yet but I am a Tim Schafer fanboy.
