    Just as the title really. I'm using a fairly average laptop so I'm not hoping to run modern games, but there has to be some slightly older games that are good :P

    Atm, I'm on rome total war - but I'd like suggestions from any genre if you would (particularly a decent FPS)

    Thanks

    A decent FPS? Half-life 2.

    PC Gamer named in a poll by its readers, that Half-Life 2 was considered the best game of all time, it's also won over 40 awards.

    Other recommendations include Starcraft, Diablo II, Civilization IV, Portal, Trackmania(Available free on Steam!), Resident Evil 4 is from 2005 and pretty awesome.

    This game is almost exactly the same as Pharaoh by the way, same company i imagine as the format is identical. Personally i preferred Pharaoh but i imagine they're both great!

    Your post reminded me of it. They went on to do 'Emperor', but since I'm a Classicist, I <3 Ancient Greek games! :hubba:

    Morrowind (Get GOTY Edition) Serioulsy one of the first real RPG's I played and loved it ever since, back in 4th year I must have played it for weeks in total. For its time awesome graphic, good gameplay (only criticism I would ever have of it is limited combat system compared to Oblivion and the journal wasn't as improved as in Obliv, but apart from that its actually better) and probably one of the best storylines of an RPG I've seen.
    I spent about 6 months playing it without bothering with the main storylin, and I still hadn't done half the stuff there was or looked at expansions.

    Hey, it doesn't really matter. The only reason I specified around that year was because I was looking for less hardware needy games.
