All we have is a Wii, and that's for my kids to play, and for my wife to exercise with. I haven't gotten into single-player PC games, but I'm thinking I'd like to try some out.
What's DDO? I'm interested in Old Republic, too! Hope it's good!
I love a few computer games but I tend to play ones that are about 5-10 years old because I don't think my computer could handle the newer ones. Do you find that you have to upgrade your PC very often, Kev?
If you want to try a single player PC RPG (with the option of playing with friends online) I'd HIGHLY recommend Neverwinter Nights by Bioware.
DDO is Dungeons and Dragons Online. It's free to play (and free to download).
A bunch of the really cool single-player games out there are way to advanced for my computers. No, I don't upgrade my PC very often at all (can't afford to). My desktop at home is a single-core Celeron 2.5 with about a gig and a half of ram and an OLD OLD ATI graphics card (it's either PCI or AGP, not PCIe). It runs Guild Wars and DDO great. MMOs tend to have lower system reqs than most of the current (last few years) non-MMO PC games (especially "Games For Windows" labeled games).
My new lappy is a dual core 2.2 pentium with 4 gigs of ram and a crappy Intel on-board video, but it still meets minimum reqs for some games, so I'm eventually going to give them a try.
We did buy my wife a new desktop for her job. Similar reqs to my lappy, but we upgraded the powersupply and the video card so she could get better graphics out of her games. (She writes about MMOs for a living.)
I've heard NWN is good. But I'm a stickler for good graphics. How's it compare?
