    Need a new PC game, recommendations?

    I know I've got like 200 steam games, but I'm bored and want something new. I like shooter-y things (Metro/Stalker, Half-Life, etc.) and RPGs (ME2, Dragon Age, etc.) but am open to any new idea/suggestions. If nothing else, I'll just load up Minecraft and watch The Office on Netflix on the other monitor.

    Why are you wearing that stupid human suit?

    I second Precursors.

    Wait wait wait wait. Precursors very interests me. Horrific sentence structure aside, where do I go to play this game? I see no way to buy or play or download it on the website linked. It looks like a game I would jolly well enjoy, sir.

    Get Precursors from Beamdog. They also provide an improvement pack put together by RPG Watch.

    GamersGate is the place I know carries the Precursors, I'm sure a web search will bring up other sellers.

    http://www.gamersgate.com/DD-PREC/precursors

    Just a heads-up, GamersGate has had Precusors on sale at least three times that I am aware of this year.

    I would say Fallout: New Vegas, if you are not terribly annoyed by small bugs. Should be heaps of fix patches out. You can play it like a Stalker-RPG, if you enjoy the exploration and a story with heaps of choices.

    Two Worlds 2 is nice in a Gothic style.

    I'm very much intrigued by Two Worlds 2. But need a bit more information to justify getting it. Tei, can you be a salesman for a minute and tell me more good things about the game?

    Alpha Protocol is a stealth/shooter/RPG. Do you like stealth?

    Well even if you don't, buy ten copies so we can convince the developers to give us a sequel.

    Having just recently started Alpha Protocol for the first time, I would have to agree with this.

    Please give us a sequel...

    But BTT:

    Mount&Blade is a good way to relax and waste countless hours while listening to music or watching shows.
    Also: Just Cause 2.
    And The Witcher 2 as mentioned. Also, if you want to try out something that has to do more with building something, try Tropico 3.
