Computer Game Recs???

I need some recommendations on computer games to ask for Xmas. I am looking for maybe some older titles that are $30 or less. I want something that will test my new notebook's graphics card. Thanks for the help

Well, what kind of games do you like?

I recently picked up Morrowind due to the price drop and I'm loving every minute of it. It's an RPG. I highly recommend it if that's a genre you're into.

How much did you pick up morrowind for? I am into almost every genre of games. I am mainly a console warrior but I need a game to play some when I get stuck at the law school

The MSRP of Morrowmind is now $30. It was on sale at Best Buy for $25, and I imagine there are better deals floating around out there.

Another great game that is fairly recent but can be had cheaply is Civilization 3. It's only like $20. This one is turn-based Strategy.

Really great, fun games that are for the most part a few years old or so:

Thief 2 -- open-ended stealth gameplay at its absolute finest

Deus Ex

System Shock 2

Morrowind

Worms Armageddon

Myth 2
