    After something to get just to keep me entertained for a bit, preferably with nice graphics, and an FPS would be nice, not really fussed, here is stuff off the top of my head which I have already so don't suggest these :)

    CSS
    DOD:S
    COD 2
    BF2
    Hitman Blood Money
    Oblivion IV
    PES 5
    LFS 2

    So yeah, any suggestions on this lazy Saturday afternoon?
    Thanks in advance

    edit: even if it isnt out just yet, something to look forward to would be nice, as long as its within a month or so

    trying to remember what I enjoyed this year.

    Black and white 2 was not bad. Nice graphics and it will keep you entertained for a while. Gets a bit repetative after awhile tho.
    Another is nexus (if its your cup of tea, bit like home world) This game did not not do great however I loved it. Great story line and some orginal game ideas. Was completely additcted, finished it in a week.

    Sid Meier's Pirates aint too bad either.

    Sorry cant think of any FPS.

    Anyone else got any, off uni and im stuck in the house all day with the kids. Need a new game my self. Got the above too.

    Is there anything new about it or is it the same old game style (not that it was bad before just not sure I can take another one)

    EDIT: you aint got HL2 in the list. Im assuming you have got it but what about episode 1?

    Knights of the Old Republic 1 and 2 - ace games and you won't stop playing them until you have complete them

    Oh and get Dawn of War like the chap said above - ace.
