    I've played just about everything there is at the moment. Can anyone recommend a good game that weren't hyped all that much and slipped under the radar? I've played last year

    NFS most wanted
    Quake 4
    All the moh games
    Starship troopers
    SWAt 4
    serious sam 2

    damn, Just realised this is pretty much every decent game realised last year.

    Any other i missed? I mainly enjoy FPS's like a good boy should.

    get battlefield 2 and you wont look at any other games again, not currently available anyways.
    ive tried going back to other games i used to play but its just not the same now this if out. and you owe it to yourself to play the greatest fps online titla available imho.

    Yeah BF2 is definately worth a good 2-3 months. i still play it occasionally but wore it out quickly after playing it every night and about 4 clan matches a week

    I don't know how long ago it was released but I thought Freedom Fighters was a very good game that didn't get as much recognition as it deserved.

    what did i put down as a decent game?

    quake 4, aoe3, starship troopers and a few others only lived about 30 mins on my computer. Infact quake4 didn't make it past 20 meters of running. I was so digusted in the graphics that I uninstalled after litterally 30 seconds

    to be honest, the only 4 games I can recommend is COD2, FEAR, Farcry and Swat 4. With only Swat 4 having any replay value. Looking forward to the expansion pack.

    Ive had Fahrenheit sat in my desk drawer for a few months, borrowed it off a mate, but never got round to playing it!

    As im now unemployed, it might give me something to do during the day, so ill have to install it:)

    These are a little old and you might not be able to get them easily, but Giants: citizen kabuto (TIMMMMMMMYYYYYYYYY!), Sacrifice, maybe startopia and some Fallout. All older games mind you, so dont expect them to win a beauty contest but their gameplay was great

    All i can say is get Battlefield 2, its hours of enjoyment as long as your not getting bombarded by artillery all the time.
