    There's like a bagillion PC games so this is gonna be quite a hassle. But here's some of mine...

    - Team Fortress 2 +1 [FPS]
    - American McGee's Alice +1 [Platformer]
    - Guild Wars +1 [MMORPG]
    - Portal +1 [Puzzle]
    - Half Life 2/Episode 1/Episode 2 +1 [FPS]
    - Audiosurf +1 [Rhythm]
    - Left 4 Dead (series) +1 [FPS]
    - Garry's Mod +1 [Sandbox]
    - Minecraft +1 [Sandbox]
    - Typing of the Dead +1 [Um, FPS?]
    - Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic +1 [RPG]

    EDIT: Where's the Garry's Mod love? It's kinda like THE sandbox game. My friend only wasted 2638.1 hours on it.

    My ancient GPU died last year and my six year old onboard graphics don't stand a chance of running it. All the components are so old and obsolete I can't really upgrade anything without upgrading everything. I considered buying an entirely new PC but bought a PS3 instead. [​IMG]

    Anyway, back on topic...

    +1 Audiosurf
    +1 Machinarium
    +1 Just Cause 1/2
