    Default Been out of gaming for a few years, where to start?

    I've got my first high end PC build in about 5 years sorted and just completed Crysis 3, which is the first of the series I've given much time and really in the past I have always focused on console stuff anyway. Before that I think I played Modern Warfare 2.

    So, what should I go for next? My PS3 / 360 is still on the other side of the world so pretty much any console game that is out on the PC within the last 3 years I wont have touched.

    I'm not bothered about online gaming and in the past I have focused mainly on FPS for the PC, but since I have no other platforms maybe I should expand my palette a little.

    Suggestions on a postcard please.

    If you've not played them and they're available on PC, then the dead space series is a very good place to start fella

    Wolfenstein New Order, Bioshock Infinite, Metro Last Light... I'd also say Borderlands 2, but it's @ its best when played online with friends.

    Thanks to pattikins

    If you like strategy try the XCOM remake(s).
    Some issues but great overall.

    Also Watchdogs, Skyrim and of course PVZ

    Cheers all

    Got Bioshock last night (17f'king gig!)

    Gonna give that a try and probably wolfenstein. I really should give a different genre a go though, so maybe x-com too.
