It doesnt seem like there are any games to fill my Gears of War and Halo void on pc. I miss those games since I only have an Alienware computer now.

Doesnt seem like there are any multiplayer shooters where you can take some damage and still live. Are there any games like Gears of War or Halo?

Sounds like you need to get better at shooters. Or buy an xbox.

TF2

Tribes is probably the closest you'll get to halo

Pretty much any shooter ever made.

Most shooters nowdays got that auto heal when you cover system, games like Halo or Gears of War are hard to find since there're no similar games; you can try PlanetSide 2 it's free and as close as you can get to Halo theme.

But like this guy suggested you

Or buy an xbox.

Best thing to do is actually get Xbox One if you're fan of Halo or GoW since both are Xbox exclusives.

You can get both on pc. The first gears and halo 1 & 2. Other than that you may want to lean towards an Xbox

Speaking of Gears of War, does anyone know if there's a place to register my old retail copy of the PC version of GeoW for a digital copy? Perhaps one that will work, since my disc copy refuses to install anymore?

There isn't such a place. Microsoft already gave up on GFWL, as you know. Even when this game launched, it was one of the buggiest port ever. Installation was hell.

Warframe is a third person shooter, I'm not sure how much like gears it might be.

I'm gonna give it a shot

That's a shame. Would love to play that again. Maybe I can find some kind of third-party fix to make it work. Haven't tried installing it since the last time it didn't work, which was years ago. At least I did get to play it through and finish it a couple times back in the day, while it still worked.

Nothing is like Halo IMO. Gears of War is even kind of unique compared to other TPS (I dont really like Gears though). I have never played a game and thought this plays like Halo or Gears.

Well Gears of War was one of the few first games to have the over-the-shoulder camera styled action games, there's quite a few of them now. One of them I'd recommend is Spec Ops : The Line. It may seem like your typical military game at the start but you won't be saying that later, it's definitely worth a go.

Yeah I feel the same way. Halo has that authentic feel to it. Gears of War has that in your face cover style gameplay with plenty of gore.
