    Arrow Some great PC games to watch out for.

    Here's my list:

    Half-Life 2
    DOOM III
    Halo
    Far Cry
    Joint Operations
    RS3: Athena Sword

    All of these games are going to need a pretty fast rig. Please add to the list.
    Well, there are a few things wrong with your code:

    1) It does not work.
    2) It does not work.
    3) It does not work.

    Hope this helps.

    My vote for the best graphics engine ever goes to Dark And Light

    They have a mathematical terrain- and weather-engine that simulates real world behaviour. Snow doesn't just fall on the ground and vanishes: it stays there - after some time you can really sink into the snow. It will also melt based on season, temperature, wind, exposure to sunlight....
    There are a lot of other cool things in DnL, like 3D clouds that cast shadows, simulation of hurricanes, tornados, seasonal vegetation... look at this animated gif =)

    Well, at least if they ever finish the game...

    Max Payne had a definite ending though. You kill the leader with a nice metal tower. How could the make a sequal thats remotely related? Bullet time MADE that game though.

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    I might get flamed for this not being a PC game but i have to mention it as its origins are derived from a great PC game...

    StarCraft: ghost
