Default Help Me Get Into PC Gaming/Pick Some Games

I just ordered a laptop finally capable of playing pretty much every game out there on high settings. Only two games I won't be able to top 50-60 FPS in according to charts are Witcher 2 and Metro which both have me at around 35 FPS on high. I want some PC games from the last few years to put at the top of my list that I can buy when it arrives next week. So far I have...

1. Witcher 2. I'm a huge RPG guy and have been lusting for this game from afar since I first saw it but never had a good computer to run it.

2. Diablo III.

3. Amnesia.

4. Metro 2300.

What other great games? My preferred genres are RPG, Horror, Action/Adventure and Sports.

Yeah. It's too terrifying for me to enjoy though, so I never even came close to finishing it Not to mention my PC isn't exactly ideal for gaming. But you said you like the horror genre, and Amnesia is probably the scariest game out there.

The only game I was too scared to finish was Condemned. I literally can't play that shit without my girlfriend or friends around . Is this game on that level of scary?

I played Condemned 2 and thought it was pretty good. I'd say Amnesia is scarier because you're completely helpless and can't fight anything. Condemned is a pretty scary game though.

Another one I would recommend is Metro 2033. I have it on 360, but I've heard it's even better on PC. It's a FPS with some survival horror elements. Great game. Probably one of the most atmospheric games I have played.

Okay I'll add both to my list in OP. Man I'm gonna love how cheap PC games are and how quick prices drop.

torchlight 2 is coming out this month. it's called "the real diablo 3." Made by the same people who did diablo 2. Looks cartoony, but if it's like d2 it will not be a let down.

Get Counterstrike. It's old as shit but it's probably the best online FPS. From the makers of Half-Life. Which is also what you should get.

Torchlight is $3.74 on steam for the next 10 hours. It's pretty much Diablo 2 with a cartoony style. I would buy that one 1st before deciding on Torchlight 2. Personally I've enjoyed Torchlight more than Diablo 3. I just wish it had Co-op but the 2nd game is changing that. It also allows mods.

Laptop is in Japan and arrives Tuesday. I'm going to install SWTOR, Witcher 2 Enhanced right away. Then look into horror games.
