    I obtained a $50 gift card for compusa and since I just upgraded some stuff on my PC theres nothing else I really need to get so whats the best game going right now, looking for first person shooter or maybe a good war strategy game, thinking about BattleField 2 any other suggestions?

    BattleField 2 is the best computer game I've ever played, can't go wrong with that.

    Battlefield 2 but you will also need to get the Special Forces Expansion Pack.

    Or you can go online and download America's Army for free.

    Yeah I see they got BF2 coming out soon that includes a couple of the expansion packages for the same price as the base game, thats the one I was considering going for. Have to try americas army again last time I downloaded it it wouldnt install properly, I play KumaWar which is another free download.

    another vote for BF2 if your system can handle it. It's very demanding. Also don't waste your money on special forces. Kind of worthless. You can even get the SF unlocks in regular BF2 now.

    +1 for BF2. If you want a good RTS game that's not too complicated give Warhammer 40k Dawn of War a shot. It's cheap and it's easy to learn.

    What's the one coming out this summer that uses the Q4 world? Enemy Territory?
    That one looks like a winner too.

    I believe its a 6800, vid card isn't as new as the rest of the stuff, but haven't had a reason to upgrade that yet. Dunno about the 1911, not that knowledgable on them sounds like it maybe that pin though :dunno:

    Just get battlefield 2. It has unlimited replay value, there's a big expansion pack and a booster pack out already, and another booster pack on the way if you ever get sick of the regular bf2 (which you probably won't) And once you get a feel for the game and start getting good it becomes addicting.

    my vote goes for Day of Defeat Source. Its pretty sick! Make sure you got a good computer though. The source engine eats alot of energy.

    Day of Defeat is amazing. Best WWII game I have ever played.
