Bioshock is tha shizzle! I am getting ready to play through it a 3rd time with the new downloadable content add-on.
Mass Effect is on my xmas list - BioWare makes awesome games. Knights of the Old Republic is one of my all time favorites and I hear that this game is on par.
Bioshock is an amazing game, but I'd rather rent it than buy it.
COD4 has been achieved.
I am Soap.
Now, throw your votes to the other games so I know what teh Chubby Hubby will be unwrapping this Christmas!
Tom, the fatter you get, the sadder you get.
I have to agree with the sentiment that you need to buy a gaming PC and then explore the world of PC games. Some long playing classics would be:
Command and Conquer Collection. Approximately 6 games in one package.
Neverwinter Nights Diamond Edition - while the 3 games included would keep him involved for a couple of weeks, the user created modules could keep him involved for a couple of months. I'm now in the final stages playing a user created mod that has an estimated play time of 150 hours (yes, that's 15 days at 10 hours per day). He could then go online and play. (I can't recommend Neverwinter Nights 2 yet because the user created modules aren't that great.)
Halflife 2 Orange Box. After playing the main game and 2 episodes, he then could go online and play Team Fortress Classic 2.
Good free online play is where you'd get the best bang for your buck.
