Default What game should I buy next?

Just got an early xmas present... gift certificate to amazon, and I'll probably use it to buy a new pc game. I've already got Crysis, and still inching my way through the Witcher, so what should I get next?

Orange Box.

TF2 and Portal are two of the most fun games I've played in a very long time.

That's what I'm leaning towards... TF2 looks especially appealing.

TF2 is the best MP shooter released in quite a while

TF2 is pretty fun, takes me back to when I first got into playing MP on fps games, quake and quake2 WF. And I really enjoyed portal.

Orange Box. Great value with a nice array of games. Especially TF 2.

I would say anything but UT3.

Difficult to decide between CoD4 and TF2 for my top spot ...

Strategic buy: you have your thinky game already so you need an actiony game to balance the cosmos.

Now xmas is only two weeks away so all you really need to do is fill the space with a game you can dip into for an hour or so here and there.

Without question GoW is the one for you. Orange box will last longer and involve you more but it'll also take a long long time to finish off. Get it in the new year when it's bargain bin.

All right, looks like a pretty overwhelming nod to Orange Box, though Train Simulator does sound like an action-packed ride to Thrillville.
