dont know if this is the right forum for this, but i recently bought my first ever computer game (at age 31), The Godfather, and i thought it was brilliant. What games are you all playing at the moment, and what would you recommend. FEAR, Far Cry, and Half life 2 all seem to get mentions in the magazines, is that because they are good games, or is it just because they test the graphics cards?

Colin McRae Rally 2005 and TOCA Race Driver 3. Don't like war and shooting games, but nothing like hairing down towards Eau Rouge at 220MPH!

Are good also Halo,Doom3 and Unreal Tornament games are among the *must have's* although I found FEAR boring myself.

MystV end of ages, been playing the Myst series for years, never tire of them, the mysteries and puzzles drive you completely round the twist sometimes, but a good way of loseing half a day....

Tomb Raider Legend, great game and Laura Croft looks rather nice as an added bonus.

Have you tried a strategy game like Age of Empires III? These god-like games allow you to control the economy, diplomacy and to battle with. Amazon are presently selling this game for £20 if it interests you.

At a more violent and personal level, GTA San Andreas is another good one. click here
