Not what you mentioned - but have you thought about Magic The Gathering Online? I don't play the "real world" version, but I find the online experience great. MMO RTS cardgame You can set up an account for free and play some basic games.

Let me know if you want to give it a try, I can help. I don't play that much, but when I do, I am reminded of how great the game is. Especially in the sense that you don't pay a subscription fee and you can play whenever you want.

Default Re: i need a new game to play

lol yea ive got a life, i guess i should have said "the games that i have and am tired of at the moment are..."

i beat most of them or got stuck on a level and gave up lol. i would play oblivion more but i can only run it on medium and below at somewhat decent framerates so i think ill hold off on that for the time being until i build a new system

i was looking into 9dragons and GE so maybe ill give those a shot

Try Jade Empire. I played it on xbox when it first came out and it kept me entertained.

If you can hold on just a little longer, a bunch of good games are coming out like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and bioshock and C&C3. I'm just working on upgrading my rig until these come out.

Try runescape ( an online game for people who arent in the know ) People often think of it to be shadowed by WoW however unlike WoW its free unless u wna become a member of course but i think even thats cheaper

STALKER has gone gold. Go and buy you wont be disappointed.

It is the year of games for sure this year.

Supreme Commander, STALKER, Bioshock, Test Drive Ultimate, Jade Empire, ET Quake Wars. Just to name a few. ooooooo its going to be a very expensive year to say teh least, not including hardware upgrades for them :P

Doom III kept me busy for a few weeks. Great graphics and it didn't cost that much. For a FPS game it had a good storyline and was fun to play. You need to move fast in this game to stay alive.

Neverwinter Nights 2 is pretty amazing and you can play online as well, it's not an MMO but, close to it.

I really haven't encountered a really good MMO lately to be honest, I don't play one currently, I did play EQ2 which I enjoyed, but many people I've talked to hated that game so I don't recommend it to anyone anymore.

MU is a good one. It's an online game. You can play for free or get a monthly subcription if you want. I know alot of people who play that one. They've also played runescape too.

Thumbs up Re: i need a new game to play

If you or anybody else wants to play MMORPG games I go to google.com and type in gameorge.com in the search bar. Click on the web page where its says gameorge.com, click on it. Then it will give you a list of free MMORPG games you have to download them onto your computer. If you like the text base games, they have it too or you like MMORPG games, I recommend somebody or anyone in this group play deicide. An Aweasome game. You have to download the game into your hard drive. Thanks. :D I forgot, the games from gameorge.com, its free.

Try this Viper it has slipped under the radar ARMA armed assault it was supposed to be operation flashpoint 2 but bohemia got into an argument with codemasters over the name yada yada so it is operation flashpoint 2 and has been in deveopement for about 5 years

Demo 800 meg

http://www.armedassault.com/dwnl_demo.html

You can buy the full game now but you'll have to get it shipped from europe as its only released stateside in a month or so,the first patch is already out too

http://www.armedassault.com/buy.html

It has already got many mixed reviews,they have aimed to keep the great bits of gameplay from flashpoint while making a completely new game,operation flashpoint also got mixed reviews when it was released but eventually everyone came around and realised what a great game it was

If you didnt like flashpoint well I guess I'v just wasted a portion of my life typing this :D
