Project cars is good, Forza 6 will be better. I have Forza horizon and it is utterly insanely gorgeous.

The basic starter shooters are undoubtedly Half life 1 and 2 along with Call of Duty: modern warfare.

Stalker is ace but don't play it without the 'Complete mod'. Start with Clear sky and play them in order, download the complete mod for each after patching them (not needed for steam versions).

If you want a real time strategy game you need Dawn of War 1 with the ultimate apocalypse mod.

Arma 3 is a dedicated mil-sim shooter I actually prefer Red orchestra 2 for multi player these days.

Crysis 1 I have a wicked arsenal mod that gives you the ability to carry a lot more weaponry and ammo, even has a nuke launcher.

Crysis 2 I have with a little mod that give you a lot more energy to use with your suit, it really does make you a lot more super human without being overpowered.

Half life 1- just don't play it without downloading the black mesa mod, which totally overhauls the base game and gives it graphics more akin to half life 2.

Very good fun are zombie shooters like Dead island and Killing floor 2.

With your CPU and graphics card you will be able to play virtually anything on near maximum settings if your monitor is only 1080p resolution. It is when you get into multiple displays and 4K that the graphics horsepower requirement gets silly.

I would not go mad buying stuff on steam, pick a few from this thread, and then wait for the others to come on sale, steam is full of sales, you can buy games with huge discounts applied and get good solid gaming for virtually nothing in the right sale.

Im a PS4 fan but also have a decent gaming pc and was thinking of forza horizon. Is it still populated and are the players ok or just more of the troll fraternity that just want to ram you off the road

I have not played for 6 months, when I was on there it was well populated and hard very few instances of people trying to ram me etc.

Forza 6 might be better.

I mainly play racing games but really enjoy Just Cause 3 ( should be cheap now 4 has come out ) looks very nice and should run perfectly on your system.

It's played in 3rd person view like gta v, but you're a rebel trying to free a country from a dictatorship, you take over police stations, factories, airbases etc. Lots of shooting, massive explosions, driving, helicopters, flying, tanks etc. Far better on a decent pc than the clunky console versions.

I also bought a dongle to use my existing Xbox 360 pads which I love on the pc. Work perfectly straight away on windows 10 games, just needed a quick tweak in the settings to work on steam games.

If you liked Wolfenstein, try Dishonored and Dishonored 2.

I've got Just Cause 3 on the PS4, I do like the game and the mayhem you can cause but for anybody wondering if they should buy it, if you find things repetitive and don't like the 'grind' then JC3 and probably JC4 won't be for you.

After you've liberated the 5th town you start to realise it's a bit of a chore.

The latest Assassins Creed Odyssey was very good. Dont really need to have played the previous games to enjoy this one either.

I'm waiting for the Steam winter sale to start. I want DOOM 2016, and if it's cheap enough Fallout 4.
