Hi guys, this is my first post in this thread. As I said in the introductory thread, I don't play games that much. But I like to play games. Sometimes I get stuck in some problems and need some help. I guess that's when this forum will be useful.
Anyway, in my gaming experience, I've not played FPS that much. I can only recall DOOM, The House of the Dead, Virtual Cop 2 and recently Half Life 2 (didn't complete). These are my First Person Shooter games experience so far. However, I've played a number of third-person shooter games including GTA Vice City, San Andreas, The Godfather, Mafia and a few others. I thought I loved 3PS until recently I played Half Life 2 which is a FPS. I think I'm loving FPS although I'm still confused which one I like better. They say third-person shooter games come with a variety of options while FPS doesn't have much (like open world roaming and driving indistinctly).
So, what's the reason I haven't played much games? Well, it's the configuration of my computer as some of you might have already guessed. I saved money and bought my first computer in 2009 which is a dual core machine with 2GB RAM, Intel 256 Graphics and 320 HDD. I couldn't afford to get a graphics card in recent years (even know I can't ). So, I only played those games that suited my configuration.
However, I don't play games doesn't mean I stay away from the gaming world. I always keep an eye on what's going on the gaming world. I've been hearing the buzz of Call of Duty Moder Warfare 2, Black Ops, Crysis 2, Portal 2, Assassin's Creed, Fallout, Far Cry (I've tried Far Cry 2 in my PC and it wouldn't run) and so on. Most of these are FPS games and I didn't feel much interest in playing them until I played Half Life 2 recently.
What do you guys think that for someone like me leaping from GTA and The Godfather type of open-world environment third-person shooter gamer, what first person shooter games will be enjoyable? I've played Far Cry 2 (couldn't play, too slow and lagging) but heard it's an annoying one while the previous one, Far Cry, was much better. I'm thinking of playing Black Ops, Far Cry, Crysis, Portal and Fallout. Do you think I'm gonna like them? Also I get confused because these games have lots of series. So, which one should I take up? For example, if you say I should play Crysis, then crysis 1 or two?
A note on my preference, I don't like monster-characters in shooter game that much (although I wouldn't mind that much, too). So, anything like Black Ops should be fine for me.
I'm waiting for your recommendation. If you can, also tell me please which graphics card should be good for playing all the latest games (note that I cannot upgrade my PC at all, I can only buy a graphics card so if you talk about a card that needs Core 2 Duo, then please don't mention it. I hope you understand.) including the price in Bangladeshi market.
Thanks in advance everyone.
