My internet doesn't like to work often, and it decide when it works or not, and as i usually play multiplayer games, but i need a single-player game to play when it (often) doesnt work.

Heres the "rig" (its not much, sue me.)

XP home 

amd athlon 2.4ghz 3400+

1GB RAM

256mb Nvidia 7600GS

plenty of HDD space for stuff.

thanks! (oh and BTW, i have half-life 1&2, so no need 2 mention it)

Farcry! Completely. not so linear FPS in a lush and sexy island backdrop. Not a short game either.

What genres do you prefer?

Some great games off the top of my head that will run fine are:

Shooters: Far Cry, FEAR, Max Payne 2

RPG/Adventure: Oblivion, Indigo Prophecy, Geneforge Series

Strategy: Rise of Nations, Rome: Total War, Medieval2: Total War, Starcraft, Star Wars: Empire at War

Hope that helps.

Well if you are having trouble with your internet I suggest you switch. What do you currently have? Go here for reports on broadband. www.dslreports.com. I have fastaccess from bellsouth and I rarely disconnect. I believe they got monthly plans that start at 35 bucks a month.

C&C3, Farcry. Solid single player campaigns. Honestly, you are better off with getting your multiplayer working. It has a lot more longevity.

STALKER has an excellent atmosphere and storyline, and it's the best single player game i've played in a long time.
