I'm not a gamer but was thinking of getting a shoot'um up or a flight combat game. Any ones out their for novices.

Any games that are cheap that i can buy, then if i want to buy something newer i can at a later date?

You don't say what system spec you've got, but Microsoft do a couple of freebies that are worth a look, assuming you have broadband, the downloads are pretty huge click here

Return to castle wolfenstein would be a good one to start on, or perhaps unreal tournament.

How about Gunsonline?

Always reccomend this game and its totally free.

It will work on your system with no problems at all.

Also if your looking for a great game try Halo its cheap at the moment and should work on your system.

Take my advice and don't start playing games, they become very addictive - I dread to think of the hours I have spent on them !

The last game I bought - Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-Earth(2) cost me £35 - I then found my graphics card could not cope with it, so had to buy a new card for £114 !

Have a look at click here they have a good selection of older games at 3 for £10 including postage. You might like to try flight unlimited 3 for a flightsim, Rainbow Six 3 Raven Shield for a shooter and Worms Double Pack for addiction.

LuCkily I can play in easy mode but passes a couple of hours away from the rubbish on the TV.

Agree with Fe I'm afraid, wolfie3000 will make you one of the gamers "clan" if that's the right term!!
