Depends. What types of games are you into? FPS? Racing? RPG? RTS?

Anything that is new or anything that will work on XP. I prefer FPS. But i also like RTS and Racing.

Off the top of my head you have Battlefield Vietnam, UT2004, Call of Duty (slightly older but still excellent). I think there's a demo for Breed available as well (full game supposedly ships this week).

You might also give Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow a shot. I have a copy but haven't been playing it yet (been tied up w/UT2004 and FC). Can't wait to get the time to play PT but must...finish...FC...first.

You may want to check these out:

FarCry ( of course, you'll love it )
Battlefield Vietnam ( great for multiplayer )
SC Pandora tomorrow
UT2004 ( i love UT games, here in Portugal it arrived only in CDs in the first day, i'm waiting for the DVD version, dunno whytf it didn't arrive at the same time...marketing in this country seems to be against the will of costumers )
CMR4 ( supposed to be the best driving game around )
Call of Duty is a must in singleplayer, just awesome, and quite fun to play in multiplayer.

Give these a try, it should be enough for a few weeks of awesome gaming.
Just remember to buy some food and never forget to have a bottle of fresh water around, you'll need it, hehe.

I remember having a Alpha version of Breed, but it was too early to see how good it ever was going to be, had nice graphics back then, should be close to today's games.
Has anyone have this game? Is it any good? ( should be ).
