I am getting a new laptop which actually have a graphics card in, which is going to arrive whenever Dell hurries the fuck up and builds it, anyway I want to know what FPS and strategy games are out that are good, I haven't played pretty much any games since about 6 months after Battlefield 2, any DX9 games would be good suggestions from about 2005 till now.

Some games I have been looking at are:
    - F.E.A.R, I played the demo of that and it seemed ok,
    - Red alert 3, if EA haven't fucked it up it should be good, red alert always has been.
    - S.T.A.L.K.E.R, don't really know anything about it though, is it any good?
    - SWAT 4, once again is that any good?
    - Was look at the new Rainbow Six but it didn't have a great rating, hows that, which one do you think is best, I haven't played one since the original, which was released in like 1998.

Anyway any suggestions/comments?

the movies? it was aight... could of used more animations and such but, it was still fun to create movies... and the studio mode is like a strategy/micro-management game since you have to manage your stars and budgets, and stuff...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

I played the original Sims and it was all right, is it like that or is it like it with all its pointless crappy add on packs, then again that game took ages too play and never really finishes.

How is the new NFS? Underground and Underground 2 were really good and Most wanted wasn't bad.

I'm an RTS nerd.

World in Conflict - Definetly recommend this one, graphics intensive but awesome gameplay.
Age of Empires III - Not sure when this was released, it may be old but it was quite fun.
Command and Conquer Red Alert II - Hmm, its aight, fun for a short time. Feels abit dumbed down at times.
Command and Conquer Tiberium Wars - Older, but I prefered this over Red Alert II tbh.

Not a pure RTS but still a strategy game, Empire Total War. It's relatively new, mixes turn based strategy with real time. Most the Total War games are good.
It may be a good idea to check the IGN website and look through the editors choices;

I just seen Mortorstorm Pacific Rift for 30 bucks. I already have it but I would recommended other for getting it at that price, its a bargain. I will warn you that the game is fucking hard.

I've found it's impossible to be more human than human. Inhuman, however, is easy.

It is awesome. A really modern twist in the call of duty series. It is the best CoD so far imo.

I played Rome: Total war and will probably play that again at some point, the only reason I stopped was because the computer I had couldn't run it and my other computer was somewhere else, it was pretty good though.

Probably give both the new C+Cs a go I preferred RA2 to Tiberium sun, but that was only because it was more arcadey and just more fun IMO.

I refuse to play anything that associates with WoW, plus I played starcraft years ago and didn't have a clue wtf was going on.
