Question by アイスクリーム is good.: What are PC games similar to BioShock, Portal, Half-Life, Assassin’s Creed, Skyrim, etc?
I’m looking for more PC games to play, and here’s the full list of what I currently have on my laptop (so please don’t mention them in your answers)

-Left 4 Dead 1 & 2
-Portal 1 & 2
-FarCry 3
-Assassin’s Creed II & III
-Borderlands 2
-Half-Life 1 & 2
-BioShock 1, 2 & Infinite
-Tomb Raider (2013 game)

I’m looking for more games similar to these on the list. It doesn’t have to be a very recently released game, just as long as it’s similar to these other games. The more games you list for me, the better!

Thanks in advance to those who will be giving helpful answers! :)

All of these may or may not be for PC.
Dead Space is good if you enjoyed Left for Dead or good story.
Also, as far as I can see you seem to like third-person, first-person shooters, so I’d recommend the Uncharted series or even the Saints Row series (Saints Row basically is like GTA)
Call of Duty is a given, but if you like zombies Black Ops is for you if you have friends to play with.
Dead Island is also similar to Left for Dead, somewhat.
If you like Skyrim and Far Cry 3, try Fallout 3 or Fallout: New Vegas for semi-RPG FPS.
For AMAZING graphics try Crysis 2 or 3, they play like Far Cry and BioShock.
Any of the F.E.A.R. games (preferably 2) are great for a different kind of shooter like BioShock.

Question by firefly2005: Tricky Question: How Long Will it Take for my Roomate to Marathon Through Skyrim?
Of my roommates I’m the one that plays consoles the most. I also work a graveyard shift for my job so on my days off I generally play in the early morning (2 or 3) to help make the time pass faster since none of my friends are awake. One of my roommates is more of a PC gamer but will play a console game if it interests him, though he generally marathons it. This is usually fine since he’ll play for long hours but it only lasts a couple days.

The problem is he just started playing Skyrim and “Skyrim” and “marathon” doesn’t go hand in hand very well. He’s been playing for over 12 hours now and I’m just curious to know how long those of you who are “marathon gamers” think he’ll do this for. If it lasts too long I’ll talk to him, but if it won’t be I’m okay with riding it out. It wouldn’t be a problem if he wasn’t gaming during the times I normally game. I can’t really just play later in the day because the small window I’m awake during the day is reserved for social activities since I sleep in the afternoon and work at night.

Again, I’m not above talking to him, I’m just looking for an estimation from other gamers who might be able to give me a clue as to how long this will last.

OK, if we’re talking about maybe 12 hours per day, which is fairly extreme, It could take close to 20-25 days, if every nook and cranny is explored.

That is un-modded Skyrim. Add another 3-4 days on to that iff the expansion is included.

Of course, few people can keep that up continuously, so in practice he could be on this game for a couple of months.

Question by Vanhallen Vanhallen: How long does Skyrim take to install on a PC?
Not as a download but as a disk. Im getting Skyrim in about 2 hours and if I were to download it via Steam, it would take me about 7 hours (259b/ps= about 1gb every hour)

Is it faster to download it though the actual game disk for PC? The only other PC game I ever bought was Dragon Age, and that didnt take long to install, but thats not nearly as large as Skyrim.

Answer by DethByFlavor
No I have the disk and it just installs steam off the DVD then downlods the game. It takes a long time – I am not happy with this design.

1.Dawnguard- The Xbox 360 version of Dawnguard launched in English-speaking territories on June 26, 2012. It focuses around the return of Lord Harkon, the ruler of an ancient Vampire clan named the Volkihar. Harkon wishes to use the powers of the Elder Scrolls to blot out the sun, allowing Vampires to overwhelm Tamriel.

2. Hearthfire- The second add-on for Skyrim, Hearthfire, was released on September 4, 2012 for Xbox 360 and October 4, 2012 on PC. he add-on allows the player character to purchase a plot of land and build their own home from raw materials such as lumber and clay, with the option of adding greenhouses, bee hives and alchemy/enchanting facilities. Hearthfire also introduces the option to raise a family by adopting children.

3. Dragonborn- Dragonborn was released on December 4, 2012, initially only for the Xbox 360. The DLC’s first trailer, released on November 5, 2012, revealed that it will allow the player to ride Dragons, and that the plot will revolve around the return of the first Dragonborn/Dovahkiin to the island of Solstheim (previously featured in Bloodmoon, an expansion of Morrowind, the third game in the series).

There isn’t really any news on any new DLC because Dragonborn just came out. However the Dragonborn DLC will come to PS3 and PC early 2013.
