    Hey Guys

    Just got back inot PC gaming after a long break (since WOW) about 5 years ago, anyway I have got steam and I am a bit like a kid in a candy shop at present, and I dont just want to waste money.

    I am kinda only really interested in those PC games you can not get on consoles..

    So far I have

    Arma 3 (regretting it, but needs more time)

    Chilvary (loved it, for a few days, but I find it does wear thin quite quickly)

    I am seriously looking at Natural Selection 2, however having just missed the sale it is a bit annoying to have to pay full price, but if it is great I dont mind...

    Anyone got any suggestions for games of that type? and any thumbs up for natural selection 2?

    Natural Selection 2 is good, but something like Team Fortress 2 is much better, and also free.

    I don't know how good your PC is, but more than likely it'll run console games much better than consoles can, so I wouldn't shy away from multiplatform.

    Get bent.

    you are right, I am a trader in kinda guy, so if I get the latest game like Tomb Raider for example, I would finish it in a couple of weeks and sell it or trade it in...

    Buying a pc just to play consoles games with prettier graphics is a bit of a waste anyway.

    Have you tried Planetside 2? Or even BF3 on the pc (feels completely different to the console version because of the increased player count).

    Shogun total war 2 and civ 5 are good starters for strategy games. Maybe try unity of command if you want something a bit more niche.

    Try the beta for trackmania 2 as well. It's quite frustrating but fun at the same time. Very similar to trials, really

    I understand why people say this but I don't really agree with it. The visual experience is a very important part of entertainment. Pretty graphics and more fps makes a big difference to a lot of games. It's like saying its not worth watching blu-rays that are also on DVD

    @superdelphinus - the impact of pretty graphics only last for around an hour, after that you get used to them. Its like watching hd tv channels, they look amazing at first, and you can tell when you go back to consoles, but after an hour you don't notice how pretty it is.

    Ir maybe that's just me...

    personally speaking I cant play on my Xbox in shitty 30fps anymore, its not about the graphics so much as the smoothness. Try Dishonored on PC then try and play the Xbox version...

    I tried playing far cry 3 on console after playing it on pc and it looked like it was smeared in vaseline...

    But I think he's asking for games that only pcs can play, not what they can do better.

    Mount & Blade might be a good call. Single-player Chivalry with option multi-player and a meaty sandbox world. Just pick up Mount & Blade: Warband, IMO - should be plenty in there to keep you busy for a hundred hours or more, regardless of modding.

    And either STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl or Call of Pripyat.
