I once again am in a bind.. My new video card is supposed to arrive tommotor or monday, so i need a good 20 dollar game off of steam that will burn up a couple of days while i wait. I was looking at call of juarez, but i am afraid it will be too short or the stealth missions will be too boring (i really.. REALLY dont care for stealth games). Then there was titan quest.. i played it about a year ago before the CD scratched up and i remember i didnt partivularly care for it. Are there any other good games on steam that are 20 bucks USD or less?

edit - TF2, portal or counterstrike game is out of the question.. Played them to death.

Yeah i would say get CoH *even-tho the steam version is stupid for updating... but any-who other then that how about Day of Defeat?

Heh, the funny thing is, i am already getting company of heroes free with my video card :P

Pretty much any multiplayer game wont do to be honest.. CoD4 stil has me addicted.

yeah, i have that one.. Its pretty good when you are waiting on something but not a long lasting game.

pretty much the only reason i am asking what game to get is because half the games i already do own are unplayible unless i get a new video card. Such as bioshock, crysis, two worlds, the witcher, Mass effect,exc.

day of defeat: source is very, very interesting. and only $10! stalker's also very good, if you haven't played it before. prey's also pretty good. and sam & max season 1 (not sure how much that is, though).

i played day of defeat a bit back when i owned it (long story) but i dont think it will last very long. I have cod4 for an online game so i dont think there is need to get another online shooter. Also played prey, got about half way then i lost is (again, long story completely related to DoD:S).

Titan Quest gold is a steal at $20 dollars. Fun and beautiful sum the game and its expansion up nicely.

So far i have

Call of juarez (looks likke it has a story i would be interested in)

Rainbow 6 vegas (worried about how it will run on my PC.. then again i am worried about Call of Juarez too)

Titan quest (kinda iffy on it, last time i played it i couldnt get into the game at all, might just be because i was a lower level)

that are possibilities.. Any more?

Civilization 4 my friend, easily the best turn-based strategy game ever made. Read the review on Gamespot and DL the demo.

Online mode is hellafun.

Yeah, if STALKER can run on your computer, it is a very good option, although it might consume you for longer than just a few days.

Ill try out the demo.. Not quite sure about it but i hear its pretty good.

I also already have stalker, i am in the middle of beating it but would like to hold off until i get the video card before i play it again.. I want to experience all it has to offer so i can enjoy it even more.

A warning though...it can be EXTREMELY addicting, doesnt matter if you're playing online or not, they're both equally addicting...just thought I'd tell you that.

Ok, finished the civ4 demo but i am still unsure if i want to spend 20 bucks on it.. I felt as if time was moving by way too fast in the demo. Before i knew it it was already close to 1AD. and for some reason i couldnt get any copper or iron :/
