I think the graphics are just a bit too dated to get into this late in the game. Wish I had played it years ago :(

Try out F.E.A.R
it's getting old but it's still very very pretty, the story is wtfawesome and the game can scare the shit out of you unless you are carved out of stone or norwegian.


If you want an RPG, The Witcher all the day baby. Or just wait for Fallout 3

NWN2: Mask of the Betrayer, or the original campaign.  (Or, the two expansion campaigns for the original, both far more interesting than the first campaign, and the SoUT one was really good two player.)

Medieval 2: Total War

The Political MAchine 2008 is meant to be alright, if you like that kind of thing.

The two Penumbra games that are out, while FP aren't really shooters.

Company of Heroes and expansion - Alright story, some interesting missions, nice visuals.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R  - Not really helpful for you if you don't like FPSes.

Audiosurf.

OK, so it's not one of those "Big Fucking Storylines with Epic Battles"-games, but it's incredibly fucking fun. And that's all that counts, right?

NWN2 is a good bet.  So is Mass Effect, if you aren't totally adverse to shooters (not that ME is a shooter, but you'd probably think so at first sight).  Lost Odyssey is an extremely good JRPG, but not sure what your tolerance is for that.  If you're willing to suffer through some older graphics, Knights of the Old Republic and KOTORII were also both terrific.

I loved the Longest Journey!  Just played it the other month and absolutely adored it.  Bad recommendation as far as graphics go though; that game looks worse than a SNES release.

I think I might have liked Dreamfall except that it controlled like absolute ass.  Even moving around was a pain in that game.  And why was April all emo all the sudden?  I eventually got stuck on some puzzle where I had to listen to musical notes and gave up.  *hates that kind of puzzle*

Sins of a Solar Empire should work for you based on some of the games you seem to like.

I don't do game recommendations to graphics snobs, but if you insist...

Try some underground games, like Oasis or something.
