Just cause it looks good doesn't mean it will play good.

Maybe, but there's no "just looks good" game on that list. All are made by experienced devs looking good+ good devs= most likely play good :)

Looking good so far. I hope BI will get Game2 out of the door by then but I guess you can't rush a good game.

      At first it seemed like 2006 would be a great year for vrai-RPGs, but now it seems like a lot of them are getting delayed and pushed back, Bioshock and Witcher being some examples.  Has Dragon Age officially been delayed until 2007 then?  I don't remember seeing any official announcements, though with Bioware thats always a possibility.greatatlantic

Since Oblivion came out this year and Gothic 3 should be out in September (hell, maybe even NWN 2 will be good), 2006 actually has turned out to be a great year for RPGs.

PC games are great but doesn't it suck you have to pretty much keep ur PC up to date and spend much much more to play good games like these?

iono much about video cards but for example when i got mine nvidia geforce 4 with 64mb it was the biggest thing and then not even a year passes and there is 128 mb and games require better graphics etc and mine sucks so i have to play the newer games on low quality so it isnt choppy

i think ps3 will be great and wont have 2 spend so much for atleast 3-5 years

no

i buy a top of the line system and i wont have to even upgrade it for 2 years.  and i wont need another PC for probably close to 4 or 5 years.  i'll be able to play all these great games in good detail with minimum number of upgrades. i don't know where the idea came from that PC users upgrade every other week just to play games.

and if i'm not playing games, i'm burning DVD's, listening to mp3's, emailing, writing docs, doing work, editing videos...etc.

Wheezal's right.  I got my current computer in 2003 it's a P4 2.53.  In that time (three years ago) I've upgraded 1.5 times.

Alright the .5 is for me adding an extra 1GB of Ram to it, bringing it to 1.5GB.  I don't count adding memory as upgrading as such.  So I've replaced two items on the board (graphics and sound) and added a second hard drive.  If you do your homework and shop around YOU can upgrade a pc without it costing you the price of the current generation of consoles (I think I bought an xbox at the time as well, but that's long gone!).

Plus the PC is good for other stuff too of course as Wheezal pointed out.  Remember don't be afraid to open up the computer once in a while.  It does it good if you take a hand held vacuum around the insides too.

PS - Thanks for creating this thread, I didn't know about 98% of those games and I'm so going to be looking into Star Trek Online.  I'll sell my grandmother to play that for a year if a) it's any good and b) she was still alive.  Lol never mind.

Amen to that.

Choosing a moment to get a good PC should set you up for 2 or 3 years. Back in 2003 I had an Athlon XP 3200+ which lasted till 2006, even now I could play oblivion on it pretty good with it, even though it only supported AGP.

Besides on your spare time should be used for working, and you still can use your computer for that.

Looking at the news of US and Iran relations over Iran's reasons and rights in pursuing a nuclear programme. It might be a good idea to pack in as much gaming time in 2006 and 2007 as possible, because if Bush carries out his threat and precision bombs Iranian suspected hotspots in a bid to neutralise it's nuclear capacity. We may not be here in 2008 to enjoy our pleasures if Russia and China, being seriously miffed at the cavalier way in which their economic trading buddy has been violated, and retaliates!

Would make all this gaming chatter seem kind of irrelevant.

Well China and America is a big trading partner too, so maybe they won't retaliate straight away.  This is really off the subject of upcoming games for 2007 but I do see your point.

Probably less than what you are going to spend on all the next-gen consoles and extra controllers and hard drives and memory cards and whatever else.

1. my computer won't run it
2. i pretty much suck at all C&C games.

Kensai_Akira

nothing, i already have a high end PC that owns any console.  and it will last me a good 2 years before an upgrade and a good 4 to 5 years before i need another PC.

wow, this sounds really redundant..maybe it's because we already went over this point earlier in the thread and some people don't read the posts?

considering that 95% of PCgames don't require "high end PC" I don't think that's a problem :)

^ Dude the Strategy section you have lacks some instant bestsellers to be out this year!!! case in point:

Age of Empires III: The WarChief's Expansion
Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends.

No strat game list for this year is complete without those two titles.

the lists lacks those two because they are slated for 2006 release and this is 2007 thread. You can find both of those games in 2006 thread :)

[QUOTE="kayne2000"]you forgot spore that game looks like it will own.bob_rulz

Spore is supposed to be released later this year, not next year.

But 2006 and 2007 look like the best years for PC gaming in a long, long time. Hail the return of PC gaming! Instead of just sequels/spinoffs, like it's been in the past few years, the next couple of years look to bring us a good mix of sequels and fresh, original franchises.

I believe the date was pushed back to early next year, actually, but I could be wrong

Well the 27 Percent is meant that the cool gamers r there. The rest are cheap console gamers lol. Anyway: My reason would have to be 1. UT2007. 2. BF 2142. and 3. Enemy Territory Quake wars. Maybe the new Guild Wars'll last me that long too. :)
