For the first time in my life I have a PC (a Mac, actually) that can play current games with reasonably pretty graphics. What game that I have missed out on should I play?

Here are the rules:
1. This game must be PC exclusive - no console version can exist
2. This game is not an RTS (I'm no good at them)
3. This game supports widescreen resolutions or has a fan-made widescreen patch

I actually have The Witcher from a Steam sale. Is it a really long RPG?

Can you play Crysis with a controller? I suppose I can look that up.

Yes, the Witcher is long with a pretty unique combat system

I would imagine you could use the controller mapping software to run crysis with the 360 controller. It's anpretry long one as well but fun up until the ET's show up.

I would recommend crysis warhead instead.

Want a more tactical shooter?  Armed Assault 2 would be my choice.

Apparently it supports the 360 controller out of the box due to Games for Windows requirements, but lacks the ability to go prone as well as (if I am reading correctly) aim assist for use with controllers.

icon_lol I just don't like playing shooters with mouse and keyboard. I like a nice analog stick for movement and not having to remember what weapon is on key "5". And I suck holding down right mouse for iron sights and then shooting and moving at the same time. I also tend to play on my couch with a lap computer tray, so the range of movement for the mouse is limited for quick movement. If necessary I can play in a proper chair at a proper desk frown

Any turn-based game should be mostly PC-specific, and easy to play on a laptop.

Just narrow down what you like, be it fantasy, WWII, modern, etc.

Trackball = no limitations on mouse movement.  smile  Wireless trackball is even nicer.

I'm the same way.  I used to be a PC gamer way back when.  But years of playing FPS games on consoles have made me prefer the 360 controller even in PC shooters.  I much prefer the analog thumb stick movement of the left stick over using wasd with my fingers.  Also I am much more comfortable with the gamepad in my hands than hunched over a keyboard.  It may sound crazy, but it's true.

Yeah, unfortunately these days there are very few games that are truly PC exclusive beyond MMOs if you disregard RTS games.  It is generally just another platform to choose for multiplatform games, and where I prefer to play things like FPS, racing, etc games.

For MMO's I think Rift is the newest one that is actually keeping people entertained.  And of course there is Minecraft if you haven't played that yet, which I highly recommend.  And things like Heroes of Newerth or League of Legends. 

Hmm, can't think of much else that is PC exclusive.  Maybe more indie games?

Oh, I know some people have really been enjoying Magicka, so it may be worth trying out the demo for that.

Also, Farming Simulator 2011 is probably the best damn crop planting and harvesting game out there!  slywink

Walk Simulator has been pretty fantastic.  The "right leg, left leg, right leg" mechanic seems very intuitive...

I hear the Spring Fresh update is going to remove most of the bugs from the Jersey Shore sponsored 'All Hallows Eve' update, while the Summer Rain one will finally add in realistic water physics.
