That's missing a ton of great games still, but at least it could get you started... --- "How do I get rid of a Trojan Horse?" -Sailor_Kakashi "Leave it outside the gates of Troy overnight." -Davel23
F.E.A.R. (the first one) is good. Definitely play Elder Scrolls Morrowind. Doom 3 is fun, but annoying because everything jumps out at you, but you get used to it. The shotgun in that game is awwwweeeessssooooommmmmeeee. Thief Gold is great. Thief 2: The Metal Age is even better. Deus Ex (the original) is a must-play. Riven is great but really f******* hard. If you like "realistic" FPS, Red Orchestra is good.
If you liked Borderlands a lot you may find that you like it even more and it's a slightly different experience with the keyboard and mouse. Same goes for almost any fps really.
The two games that I've put the most time are Civ V and The Sims 3. For some reason I'm able to play these games with ceaseless immersion and not even realize I've been doing it for 5-6 hours at a time. I can't really explain it, but those games have the most time logged for me.
I built my PC last November and have been collecting steam games for maybe 3 years, used to play on a Intel HD3000/ i5 / 8gbram / asus laptop. At this point I have pretty much every game I had for 360 on PC as well, most of which being GOTY or all dlc or whatever, simply because of sales you can get everything so cheap, and to me, it is worth it. --- i5-4670k | 2gb GTX - 770 | G.Skill Ripjaws 2x4gb | 530w 80+ | 1tb Seagate | 2tb Toshiba HDD | Rosewill BlackHawk | http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Pjlind/builds/
Yeah, if you'll be playing lots of FPS, you owe it to yourself to learn keyboard/mouse if you haven't already. I play a lot of console games too, and KB/mouse is still hands down better for shooters, period. Faster aiming and more precise. It can sometimes take a bit of time to adapt if you're really used to controller, but if you can make the switch, you'll end up wondering how you ever liked controllers for FPS in the first place. heh --- "How do I get rid of a Trojan Horse?" -Sailor_Kakashi "Leave it outside the gates of Troy overnight." -Davel23
Quite a few RPGs on there. To be honest, not many JRPGs exclusive to PC. Steam has some at a affordable price: Cthulhu saves the world is a good one, Magicka is fun. Look into the Dawn of War series, (2 plays much different than 1)
If you plan to play many shooters on PC. I'd recommend you try Quake or Unreal tournament to get use to using the Mouse and Keyboard. (Play against bots!)
What would say is the major difference between a traditional JRPG and a CRPG (like Wasteland or Shadowrun)?
I would have to argue that CRPG's are pretty much JRPG's without the horrible protagonist and storyline. If you can get over the game NOT being Japanese but still being turn-based and skill/item-driven then I would recommend CRPG's like Fallout 1 and 2, Planescape Torment, Divinity: Original Sin, Shadowrun Returns, Wasteland 1 and 2 etc... --- --- Steam: LogicalOne / PSN: TheCoolBreeze / XBL: ZenTheShogun
I've never played a Game like wasteland or Shadow Run :) JRPGs vs WRPGs i see like... Final Fantasy/Disgeia/chronocross...etc vs Witcher/dragonage/KoToR/morrowind...etc --- Steam/origin/PSN/Wiiu- theimmortalmoo | i7 3770k 4.4ghz | GTX 780 | 16GB Gskill | 1200w PSU | 3 HDD 1 SSD 256 | Maximus V Formula |
