Windows 7: Game Recommendation?

Game Recommendation?

Looking for recommendation for a new game...

I've got quite a few games on steam, and for 360... But thought I'd see if some people had some good suggestions...

The game doesn't have to be brand new.

I really liked Halo 1 and 2, it had a "bad ass" hero, and you were fighting to save Earth. My Halo interest kind of fizzled out with 3 and the rts demo. I'll probably keep an eye out for ODST at the used game store.

I like quite a few other games too, like Batman AA, NHL 10, Left 4 Dead, Portal, etc, etc... But I'm kind of looking for a game with a new Hero and cause. Not just another game to play, but one where you can understand the hero and so on... I'm sure you know what I mean...

Games for Win 7 or 360.

The entire Half Life series (PC only, through Steam) or just HL2 (HL2 + Episodes 1 & 2 available in the Orange Box for PC and 360).

It is in the top 3 of my favourite game franchises and is widely acknowledged as the best First Person Shooter of all time.

Before playing HL2 I was not keen on the whole FPS genre but this game sold me on it.

Beside HL, I recommend Quake if it is availble

I'd definitley recommend the Half-Life series as well. I think the ultimate hero game though is Mass Effect 1 and 2. It certainly gives you that sense of heroic achievement when you've finished it.

Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Wolfenstein were quite fun too.
And Agent Blaskowitz is a bad ass.
PainKiller was another fun game.

+1 definitely, HL2 would keep you occupied for a good long time and then both episodes are good but short. Really looking forward to episode 3.

Thanks for all the suggestions

I've got Mass Effect / Orange Box / RTCW. I haven't played painkiller or Blitzkrieg, I'll look into those.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Not to sure this fits your criteria of "hero" but I would highly recommend Just Cause 2. The game is epic in it's story, graphics and game play and it's one of those games that you can play again and again and...................
