Re: Most fun PC games? 2000-2005

Loads of good suggestions. I think you all just made me fail university.

Thanks, I think.

Max Payne games for me.

Great first game.

Perfect sequel in every way.

Please don't play Max Payne in lieu of Deus Ex. Max Payne was an above average shooter with some cool elements (bullet time), but Deus Ex is one of the greatest games ever made. From everything I've heard that goes for System Shock 2 as well (same developers as Deus Ex), but I can't speak from experience on that one.

QFT. Also want to add that this doesn't apply to Deus Ex 2 - while a decent game, I'm still pissed that they screwed up big time and the game retains almost none of the greatness of the original. I could have designed it better, bastards console-ized it too much. I'd probably pick Max Payne over DX2.

Jedi Knight II. Amazingly fun and deep light saber combat and force powers. That's really all that needs to be said. If you like Star Wars at all, you'll like this.

Planescape: Torment if you want to play an RPG. It's not typical swords and elves though; it takes place in a very strange and disturbing world and you start off the game not knowing who you are or how you got there.

Deus Ex was made by ION Storm, and SS2 was Irrational Games/Looking Glass Studios. Warren Spector (DX designer) was involved with the original System Shock though.

And yeah, SS2 is sick sick sick plz plz plz buy it. And DX too. And Freelancer. And Morrowind. Those are prob my top 4 choices from the games mentioned in this thread.

Ahhh I thought Warren Spector made SS2 as well. I guess he isn't quite on the level of genius I thought he was.

They did such a good job w/ this compared to jedi academy. You really appreciate the force powers/lightsaber when you don't have any to start.
