PC Games Recommendations
Right then, pc built and up working, so i'm looking for some game recommendations. I've set up a Steam account and will be setting up an Origin account.

Now i'm well out of touch, the last game i bought was NFSMW so that must have been 13 years ago! Well, that's a lie, I bought Elite Dangerous when that came out but didn't have a pc to play it on!

My lad has added me as shared fam on his Steam account so i have access to pretty much any driving game as he's obsessed with them.

I like running around and killing people, well virtually anyway, where my lad likes driving things around. However, he does have Bioshock Infinite and i'm loving it, it's not overly complicated or difficult and i can blow heads off with a sniper rifle, so all is good. I'm running it on ultra settings, with maximum field of view on a widescreen monitor and runs at a steady 60FPS so i'm more than happy with the pc's performance which is running:

- Ryzen 5 2600X 3.6GHz 6-Core Processor
- EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB SC Gaming ACX 3.0 Video Card
- 8GB Gskill Ripjaw Ram

I'm looking for some game recommendations, hopefully not too expensive, everytime I ask my lad for an opinion on a game the reply is "it's crap" :lol: but he's looking at things on a different level to me.

I don't fancy online/multiplayer games and competing with real people, my days of hiding in trees sniping people in Vietcong have long gone and my fingers and reactions are slow and old, so a good old story/campaign game suits me fine.

Aside from good old NFS, some games i used to love playing that i can remember -

Solider of Fortune 1 & 2
Unreal Tornament
Max Payne
Medal of Honour
GTA 2 and GTA 3

Wouldn't mind some more graphically intense single player games along the same lines if possible. Cheaper the better really. I do like WW1/WW2 based games.

I quite like the look of the new COD WW2 but it's a lot of money and my lad says it is crap. Also the Starwars Battlefront that came out a few years back but again my lad say theres next to no campaign mode so is crap. :lol:

Fire away chaps!

GTA 5 is a lot of fun. I know it's not a war game though!
The Witcher 3 wild hunt is good.
I have Wolfenstein the new order and enjoyed that.
The recent iteration of Doom is meant to be good too.

I also have Stardew valley which if you fancy a change of pace is worth a look. Terraria is entertaining too.

I've just started playing Company of Heroes again, which is a ww2 RTS.

One for Graphics Buffs is Crysis, 1 2 and 3, a few years old now but just quickly youtube'd Crysis 3 on ultra settings and it's beautiful.

GTA V has a long story mode, no need to go online with it, plus on PC, you can mod it no end with super realistic graphics, real car brands etc.

isn't it beautiful. (Best watched on youtube in proper widescreen mode).

I'm sure my other lad has one of the Crysis on his Steam account, i'll have to get him to fam me up too!

I'll take a look at the others, cheers chaps.

Used to love playing GTA, got to get me a new controller for driving the car though.

Only PC game I am absolutely buzzing for at the minute is Total war: The 3 kingdoms.

Not cheap, but iRacing is good for a racing fix. It's taken very seriously.

Just had a quick look at Total War, I guess it’s a bit like the old c&c games? Used to love playing them.

My lad hasn’t got iRacing, I asked him and he said “super serious £15 a month game, but ‘sposed to be really good”. Probably overkill for me and he’s got umpteeen other racing games I can use to be fair.

If you want a decent/amazing racing sim...Project Cars and Project Cars 2. Look awesome, all cars feel different etc, again, have a look at youtube vids of peoples set ups with racing wheels, clutch and gearboxes, multiple screens etc.

Starbuck88 16-08-2018 01:44 AM

sorry to bombard....another racing sim rFactor2 is loved by many.

Honesty, I’m fine for racing games. My lad has god knows how many I can access, Project Cars, BeamNG, Dirt Rally, every NFS game ever and so on. He’s got my old SNES and has bought every racing game for that too, even Stunt Race FX :lol:

I really after so nice FPS games like I used to play that aren’t too expensive to buy 👍
