    General Game Recommendation Thread

    We all get bored of our games collection, and sometimes you miss out on fantastic games. This thread is for recommending each other games you enjoyed playing or think others will enjoy.

    Please put effort into your posts, don't just reel off game titles, explain a little bit and perhaps link to some more info about it.

    If you want recommendations for you, post your games list in spoiler tags. Nobody can recommend games for you if they don't know what you've played.

    Games I have:
    [spoiler:vf8fgc9d]Alien Swarm
    Arma 2
    Assassins Creed
    Audiosurf

    The Total War franchise.

    Either Rome, Shogun, Shogun 2 or Empire.

    Re: Recommend me some games

    Judging by that list I'd recommend you some obvious ones :3 :
    - Saints Row 3 (maybe even 1 if you're into the story of 2)
    - More NFS games like Most Wanted, always good fun.
    - Dirt Showdown should turn out good.
    - Crysis 2, 3.
    - The old GTA games (GTA Vice City, San Andreas, 1,2,3).

    Tell me what you like from the things I've mentioned, I might be able to think of some more.

    I was looking into getting shogun 2. Looks a bit cluster fucky though, is it good?

    I was hoping for things a little different. Not too fussed about games like SR3 and I've played my share of the GTA series. I was thinking more games in genres I haven't played rather than sequels/prequels to games I've tried.

    Thanks for the suggestions though.

    Can't tell, I only play Rome and I absolutely love it. However, when I talk to others they all say Shogun and Shogun 2 are way much better.

    Medieval 2 is my most favorite Total War game, why haven't you mentioned it?

    I'm not entirely sure if Napoleon and Empire have the exact same gameplay, (although it would be very likely) but Napoleon total war is probably the most difficult and complex total war game ever. I wouldn't recommend it unless you actually want to deepen yourself into politics and advanced economy stuff.

    Rome total war is way better than shogun imo. I played rome to death when I was younger and loved the fuck out of it, shogun is way more complicated and just fiddly. Plus I don't know what any of the fucking things are because of WAPAN.

    Dead Island, purely good fun on Co-Op
    The Witcher 2, better than Skyrim, a lot more immersive.
    Alice: Madness Returns, bought it on Steam Sale, only 75 in the review column but christ it is insanely fun and enjoyable, I'd really reccomend it.

    Rome, Medieval II and Empire Total War are fantastic. I got Shogun 2 and hated it tbh, imo they've made it way too complicated just to do simple things.

    Skype I think you should get Rome to start with, then any of the others. Rome is the best in my opinion, but I guess it depends what time period you want to kill people in.
