New to PC, recommend me games

#1promo123Posted 2/7/2014 9:19:28 PM(edited)
I've always been a console gamer. I like retro and new games. I like RPGs, strategy games, platformers, sim games, shooters a bit though I'm not crazy about them. As far as genres there isn't much that I don't like.

Running new games shouldn't be an issue, I'm about to build a PC with i7 and 780ti.

So go ahead, introduce me to the world of PC gaming!

Use an i5 instead, i7 is just an overpriced i5 for games.

Ignore Loshadt.

Sounds like your taste in games has a large breadth. I suppose I should just point you towards cheapshark.com and the steam store front page. Games are on sale all the time, so just keep an eye out and snag anything that looks interesting to you. I love too many games to start listing them all but now that you are on a pc, its extremely easy to do some quick research on anything that does happen to interest you.

I like RPGs


Then you should revisit Bethesda's RPGs [Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 3/NV], the modding community and mod selection thoroughly revamps each game a couple of times over.
