    Ok so I am officially bored with Team Fortress 2 and all my current games. I need a new game for PC that meets the fallowing qualifications.


    I can play for hours and not get bored, I have no job and no life. (I would get a job if there were any to be had.)
    Not a MMORPG (if I really wanted I could play WoW or Final Fantasy online...)
    Online multilayer should be the games "main thing".
    Has lots of people playing 24/7 and lots of server choices
    Not made by EA.



    Also, if it is a PC game, I can run it. (not necessarily on high settings... )

    I am pretty much open for anything here. I really don't like games that are stat based, I like to be able to use skill. Can even be a older game as long as it has a strong community.

    Please don't suggest all of those free games everyone knows about already like GUN and shit, retail games tend to have more players/servers.

    My favorite type of games are RTS but nobody has made a good one sense Westwood got eaten up by EA.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    You could try Left 4 Dead. Perhaps you could go back and try Starcraft or Diablo 2?

    lots of people still play starcraft....

    on-line FPSes tend to be much of a muchness. although you could try Urban Terror, it is free, but its good, has lots of players on-line, and doesn't require a high spec system. http://www.urbanterror.net/news.php

    If you up for base building then I suggest Savage: Battle for Newerth: http://www.s2games.com/savage/ although this is a free game and the rts component is only open to a few people per game (one builder at a time but they occasionally drop out) while everyone else is a shooter. Battles average 45 minutes for a good one.

    On the other hand you ask for a fairly specific set of things and I am not sure there are any, tell us if you do find one though as I would be up for playing it.

    L4D's multiplayer is a lotta fun. even if you get bored of it in a few days i'd still recommend it.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    I agree with Ferrariman, try Fallout 3, even if it isn't online. It'll entertain you for hours, and the shooting mechanics are mostly based on skill rather than your stats.

    As for online games, try Unreal Tournament 3, you might like that. And I would suggest Crysis Wars but obviously it has steep requirements and is made by EA (what's the problem with EA bar from SecuRom?)

    Also lol at:
    after you just gave us a big list discounting most PC games out there.

    I have a pirated copy too. You just have to find the right server and it will never get boring. I always wanted to buy it but I'm spending my money on my PC rather than PC games.


    I would also recommend Far cry (one or 2)Both are fun and will keep you entertained for lots of hours. Though some of the freedom goes away when the mutants start to appear in Far cry 1. They do have online modes but I think far cry 2 has the best one out of the two.

    I'd suggest various Source Mods
    Fortress Forever
    Sourceforts
    Synergy

    Or not source mods
    Sven Co-op
    Natural Selection

    If you have TF2, you can play sourcemods.
    Synergy needs HL2, don't know if you have that.

    You'll need Half Life 1 to play Sven Co-op and Natural Selection

    Fortress Forever is fun, its more TFC which I liked better.
    Sourceforts pretty interesting, but pubbing kinda sucks for it
    Synergy, don't know what to say, as I've mainly played 5 players with friends of mine

    Natural Selection is Marines vs Aliens, one guy in marine gets to be commander which is like RTS.
    Sven Co-op is interesting, easier then Synergy, but still fun.

    I agree. It looks, feels and plays like a next gen game. but it seriously lacks in actual fun.

    But damn it looks good.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    I already said back there that the shooting is almost entirely based on skill rather than stats, and Fallout 3 feels very much like a different game to Oblivion. Yes, core mechanics such as item-collecting and melee combat are similar, but the whole thing seems very different. At least give it a go, or you won't know what you're missing!

    Anyway, I'm sure you totally appreciated all my suggestions, and you most certainly wouldn't shout at someone who's trying to help would you? ¬.¬
