Ok, i`m going out on 24th November to trade-in something.
I will have £73 from the trade-in, which i can add a bit too, to spend on PC/Xbox360/DS games. So far only game im sure i will get is Draogon Age: Origins for the PC. Anyone have any other ideas?
Recently bought Forza Motosport 3 for Xbox360, so thats out.
I've heard great things about Dragon Age. Don't buy Modern Warfare 2, or I will be forced to reach through the interwebs and bonk you on the noggin.
I like roleplaying games, ive got fallout 3, oblivion, neverwinter nights..
Like driving games, love forza 3 that i mentioned before.
Wargames great, i got Total War games and Dawn of War 1 & 2.
Dont like anything too reliant on fast reactions, sports suck, and no platformers...
Turn based is good too...
Ohhh, and i dont mind shooters, for them im a halo fan..halo 3 and halo: odst at moment.

Fallout 3 and Oblivion were just amazing. Did you ever try the one before Oblivion, Morrowind? They made a lot of improvements in Oblivion so it might be a bit hard to get into Morrowind. Anywho, I don't see Half-Life 2 on that list.
If you like epic games like Oblivion, Half-Life 2 could be for you. The story line is just great, the voice acting is top notch. The graphics engine is getting a little bit dated but its still strong. There are two expansions - called episodes - that add more to the story arc, and are just brilliant. They are currently working on a third and last episode. Don't take my word for? Google it and see how many awards it won...
There is a package deal called the Orange Box. It comes with Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2 Episode 1, Half-Life 2 Episode 2, Portal and Team Fortress 2. This is a fantastic deal that will not leave you disappointed.
Team Fortress 2 is a cartoony online FPS. I never really got into it but its fan base is HUGE, so chances are you'll like it as well.
Portal...Portal is unlike any other FPS you've ever played. Brilliantly innovative, it will not fail to make you laugh at times, scratch your head in frustration at others, but ultimately leave you begging for more.
The Orange box has been out for a while now, so you could probably get it and pick something else up as well.
p.s. No I do not work for Valve!!
Half-life? Hmm, i was put off previously by not being able to play it at all on a previous pc. Ive heard of orange box, is it that good? Apart from portal, is there anything new? Just wondering if its worth buying when i already got halo 3 and halo: odst.
Well you essentially get 5 games for the price of one game. I don't know how its not worth buying if you have Halo, do you mean that you don't another FPS? Maybe I'm missing something.
If you're ok posting your PC specs I'll be able to tell you if you can run it ok or not.

If it won't run on your PC, just buy it on 360 instead.
Rork: In the dark future of the 41st millennium there is only friendship.
Fenrir: and magic.
Kaiser-: My Little Chaos Marine, Friendship is Heresy?
Ya, i meant is it much better than ones i got.. i mean thats reason to buy a new game, right? If its better or different than what you got.
Ohh, and i seen specs elsewhere, it should run. Except, its said there are some problems with vista.
I have vista 64 - the worst kind of vista in terms of compatibility, and it runs fine. I've played quite a few games in my time, and HL2 trumps nearly every single one. Its story line is so compelling, its universe is so immersive, its characters mannerisms and voices are so realistic...I just can't wait for episode 3, its been over two years since they released the last one, and still no official info on progress or release date
That being said, this is just my opinion. Below are some links to some reputable game reviews on the Half-Life series.
It is quite hard to get 95+, yet alone over 90 at this site. If you do end up getting it, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
