Looking for some suggestions on PC games....

I've recently bought a fairly decent spec'd laptop and now have a craving to go out and get some games - not necessarily latest releases - just decent ones.

As I haven't done any PC gaming over recent years I am a little out of touch with the names of decent titles or series - so am therefore asking the HUD community to help me out with some suggestions or ideas.

Looking for strategy based games such as the original C&C games and the Civilisation series (I'm also a Champ Man addict).

Thanks

So, does anyone have any recommendations or ideas? Bargain priced games would be appreciated!

There's a new c&c out lol!!!

Plants Vs Zombies is awesome. Action strategy game, I managed to find it in Currys for 97p and it's worth a fair bit more... get a demo ]HERE and check it out.

None-PC exclusives such as Fallout/Oblivion/Morrowind, Bioshock and Left 4 Dead are fantastic. The Orange Box is fantastic value for a load of top class games. More classic ones such as Deus Ex and Half Life are still worth playing.

Good list sorted by average score ]HERE.

Have a look at the top rated on metacritic (metacritic.com/gam…pc/) and read/watch some reviews on websites like gamespot and ign.

uk.gamespot.com/gam…asc Shows the latest rts games and their review score (I recommend you check the game on aswell as metacritic.com as they show reviews from many different websites)

I loved Bioshock and F.E.A.R
