    Are we talking online or offline?

    Regardless, check out the Orange Box if you haven't already. Half Life 2 plus the two released episodes are regarded as a fantastic single player experience, you also get Portal, which isn't an FPS, more a first person puzzle game, and one of the best games of the decade, and finally Team Fortress 2, a great multiplayer shooter.

    the scary thjing about that list chaparrel is that you have 99% of those games installed!

    Having been out of the pc gaming scene for a few years (PC only ran wow) I was naive and opted for a 500Gb HDD when building this PC in September. My plan was to buy a 2nd and Raid them. I should have started with a 1TB and raided a 2nd :/

    Half life 2 is excellent. I find it amazing that even though the game is what 5 years old? it still looks stunning and runs really well. I'd completed hl2 close to release and episode one ages ago but recently bough ep2 and its still just as good.

    Batman: Arkham Asylum is a third person beat 'em up :)

    Still a great game though, well worth playing.

    Left 4 Dead
    Left 4 Dead 2
    Half Life 2

    Good luck with your recovery. :)

    BF2 is the best online FPS bar none. I've lost Thousands of hours online so I'm sure you'll lose a week. Only costs a fiver these day an all.

    Hard to beat Chapparal's list. Pick any of those games, they're all good.

    If I had to recommend one, then TF2 will give you hours of gaming pleasure on the cheap.
