Default Trying to figure out what to play next

its been about 4 months since ive been into serious gaming. I tend to go though phases every once in a while where I wont play games but it seems like im getting back into it full force. I popped in HL2 Orange box and im planning on playing though HL2, and Eps 1 and 2 over the next 3 days. Im trying to decide what to get into next and I really have no idea. Im kinda looking for a shooter and ive been looking at left 4 dead. my only real concern is whether or not this game would be good to play as a single player game.Ive been looking at Killzone 2 and Resistance 2 but im in more of a 360 mood right now. Ive also been looking at games like Tomb Raider Anniversary and Jericho. Any help would be appreciated.

Fallout 3

Best game this generation so far.

If Left 4 Dead would only be single player for you don't bother, and I'd recommend Killzone over R2.

I played the demo of Jericho and wasn't terribly impressed but it's pretty cheap now so it may not be too bad for the price.

Give it a shot. It's not your typical RPG. It's a bit more than that.

It's been one of the more rewarding experiences I've had this generation. Most everything else has been rather boring.

If you can find a couple of decent friends (or just 1 other) to play with Left 4 Dead is fucking great. Otherwise like others said the single player only mode is kind of weak.

Bioshock is HIGHLY recommended if you haven't played it.

Agreed. But why not mix it up and broaden your horizons with some smaller but just as entertaining games?

I recommend (in no particular order):
  • PixelJunk Eden
  • Braid
  • Flower
  • Everyday Shooter

i would recommend uncharted if u havent played it but u said ur in a 360 mood.
Bioshock is another great game for a great single player experience.
oh, and good choice on playing half-life
You're looking to play any type of shooter or specifically 1st or 3rd person?
