    Soo I got a kind-of-gaming laptop a while ago (Lenovo IdeaPad Y560) and the only thing I've been playing is an MMORPG and it already bored me.

    I don't like shooters where you just, um, shoot (like CoD. friggen CoD) and I can take in another online/offline RPG if it doesn't have tons of grinding.

    So what do I get?

    btw I already read this topic about essential games, and all the games in the first two groups I've played and loved them OR they're shooters and Im not interested. Too-franctic shoters stress me out and un-frantic shooters bore me. Like that game Half-Life 2? I was always either too bored or too stressed out to even listen to the story, which I've heard is friggen awesome [​IMG]

    well there is Oblivion which is awesome (and mods are fun)
    I honestly don't play many pc rpgs that arn't shooters
    I do like Diablo and I play other games in that Genre like Titan Quest and Torchlight

    Cave Story.
    Oniken.

    Not exactly state-of-the-art, but they are great games nonetheless.

    And as a last resort, you could use Dolphin and a copy of Brawl.

    Yeah I think I'll try Cave Story... but I have an actual Wii, so no need to play Brawl (my favorite game... ever!!) using an emu.

    But is there anythign that isnt RPG or shooter? I mean I know they're the popular stuff, but there must be something else :S

    Real time strategy? Platformer? Puzzler? 4X space simulation? Flight sims? THE sims?

    There are many games... Just open your eyes and start trying them out.

    Well I really like 3D platformers like say Spyro, Banjo-Kazooie, or 3D Mario I suppose, is there anything like those on the PC?

    there's psychonaut.

    else, there's always tomb raider, prince of persia, Rayman, Batman:Arkham Asylum if you haven't played them on console.
