    So, I'm going to start putting together my new system today (specs on the left), and I really don't have any games to play on it. I haven't followed the games that are coming out recently to know what to look for either, because I knew they probably wouldn't run on my old computer. I know i'll check out nfs:shift and dirt2, because i like driving games. Are there any other driving games worth looking into?

    Also, i like first person shooters... but i've never been much of an online-play kind of person. What sort of games should i be looking at for that?? (besides bioshock 2... i tried bioshock 1 and hated it, dunno why).

    I'd like to have some games that show of some of the abilities of the new system.

    Thanks for any input,
    Jason

    If you hated Bioshock 1, the sequel won't do any better.. Atleast it was so for me..

    About others I'd suggest:
    Mass Effect 2
    Alien vs Predator
    GTA4

    If you are willing to give online fps a try, get Battlefield Bad Company 2.

    Perhaps add Race Driver: Grid to that racing games to try.

    Also if a bit older graphics dont annoy you and gameplay matters the most, then GTR2.
    Friend has been playing iRacing quite a lot. It's buy and try game, but he seems to be very happy with it. http://www.iracing.com/ Going to try it myself someday.

    And Mass Effect 1 & 2 for sure.

    I actually already have Grid and GTR2! GTR2 is amazing for its realism, but i wish it had a wider range of cars. If you could combine forza 3 cars with GTR2's physics and all, it would be perfect. Grid has weird physics that i just couldn't get used to.

    bad company 2 looks like something i might try because it looks visually AMAZING from what i've seen, and it might be a way to get into more online play.

    What about Batman Arkham Asylum? I saw a glowing review and the game looks very cool visually.

    A lot of people are recommending Mass Effect 2 but ignoring ME1. The story and characters are an important part of the ME series, so I would recommend playing the first game before ME2 if you haven't already.

    Batman:AA
    BadCompany2
    GTA4 (order Xbox360 controller for pc beforehand)
    Aliens vs Predator 3

    All these games offer excellent gameplay and mostly look great. GTA4 looks ugly, but is great fun trust me.
