    Been playing counsels for a loooong time. Just got a new computer and I would like to get back into computer gaming. What are some must haves? Preferably not ones on 360 because I probably have a majority of them already :wavey:

    I would suggest getting Steam and browsing the games store.

    Every shooter that is multi-platform.

    Excluding Aliens Vs. Predator. That garbage can stay on consoles.

    i can see BC2 getting old if you don't find a good server with good regulars to play on, but it would be the same thing with any game.

    We need more information on the kind of games you like and around what time you "quit pc gaming", too much out there with that starting point.

    That said, get steam, start lookin thru their catalog, you can generally trust the shown meta scores to be decent at describing a games worthyness, but not always.

    If you havent played a pc game since like floppy drive days, just get everything blizzard and valve has ever made in the last 15 years and your good for the next 2 years haha.

    I never made an effort to quit, it just kind of happened. I'll probably get slack for this but i think i prefer first person shooters on a console. The last games I played were probably half like, doom three. I used to play warcraft 3 a decent amount.
