Looking For Games Recommendations

Hey guys,

I am looking for some good games for my PC (please see my system specifications).

I like pinball games, vertical and horizonal shoot em up games too.

I have an X-Box 360 Wired Controller and apparently this will work on my Laptop but I haven't tried it as I have no games to try it with. How can I test this controller with my laptop to know that it works?

Thankyou!!

If you're into top down shoot 'em ups, I can recommend Nation Red.

Yes, I like horizonal and vertical shoot em ups. I also like pool games, but I haven't been able to find a decent 8 or 9 ball pool game for Windows 7.

There are a lot of older 8/9 ball pool games for PC that will still work on 7.

I'm looking to jump up to a 500GB or even a 640GB hard drive, and I was just wondering if some of you might share experience/make recommendations. It's to go in my Toshiba (see my specs), so obviously it has to be a laptop-sized (2.5-in.) drive. Thoughts?
