1997 Half life : Doesn't get old. One of the best single player shooter games made

2002 James Bond 007: Nightfire : Amazing game play and graphics for its time : Also has offline PVP the boots are so real compared counter strike.


2002 Hitman 2: Silent Assassin ( Best Assassin game made)


2002 Mafia : This game was ahead of its time. If you compare it to Gta 3 will be a joke


2004 Need for Speed: Underground 2 : I will say best fast and furious game made all time


2004 Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines : 10/10 This is the best RPG PC game ever made nothing can beat it and many games stoled ideas from this game



2005 Gun : "original" Red dead redemption


2005 Resident evil 4 : 10/10 Best evil game made, amazing! The new evil 2 and 3 was very disappointing.


2007 Crysis ( might not run on your PC max 1080p or try 4k I dare you lol)


2007 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare ( best graphics will put metro exodus away)


2007 S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky
Stalker call of pripyat
: This is the best open world shooter games ever made on PC


Please let me know if you and any other games in mind...

I'm playing Quantum Break at the moment on my 9900k/RTX3080, max settings 1440p without upsampling.

Nice to be able to play these old unoptimized titles at decent framerates (80-100fps) on more modern hardware.

Minor derail, but - has anyone played PUBG recently?

When it came out, it was a huge amount of fun, and a truly unique experience that I sank quite a lot of hours into with friends.

But over the years it became a buggy, laggy, unplayable mess filled with bots and hackers. So I stopped a year or two ago.

Does anyone know if it's any better nowadays? Should I clear some space on my games drive and give it another chance, or should it be allowed to die a noble death?

2007 CSI (surprisingly fun)
2010 Splinter Cell: Conviction (who doesn't love a dude avenging his daughter's murder)
2011 Assassin's Creed Revelations (Ezio becomes an old man)
2011 NFS: The Run (possibly the best NFS game of all time for a lot of NFS fans, the game's story combined with its physics and graphics engine; it is basically a less cringy version of all the storylines NFS has attempted over the last few years)
2012 Max Payne 3 (similar concept as above)
2012 Spec Ops: The Line (just a very interesting psychological take on war)
2012 Hitman Absolution (so overlooked)
2013 Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 (beautiful map design, best physics in the series IMO)
2015 Assassin's Creed Syndicate (possibly the most overlooked game of the series)

PUBG has no African server so expect laggy and its still filled with bots and more now then ever hackers

@nowe a tiny part of my big box titles (I still have two 4-in-1 printer boxes full of titles that need to be unpacked, just moved)



Yes, that copy of System Shock 2 is sealed.

I would imagine you can identify all of them, even those I've hidden slightly at that angle.

Too lazy to get out of my chair for a pic so excuse the shitty dutch angle.




It extends another 4 tiles past the top of the picture with two more lights, one above my office and one by the door. I like it :D

Metro Exodus, enjoy the whole series...
Fairly intense but also casual enough... (Did take me a while to build up the courage to play the whole game though 😂 )
Metro Exodus YT

NFS Underground 2 and the first Need for Speed shift are also decent.
