Its winter time and its getting cold. Don't feel like going out anymore plus I wanna save up money to buy a car. So staying in and playing games (when I dont have work) seems like a good idea. So anyone have any games that i can start playing. I want to start WoW mayb.

Buying WoW costs $20 to start and $15/mo to play. If that's all he did, then he'd save boatloads of money. :)

Dont start WoW. Costs money... try Half-Life 2, with Counter Strike Source. Free online, free server mods, only problem is Steam is PITA sometimes.

CS:S costs $20 from Steam and it'll last you a good while if you're into shooting games.

Whenever i go out i spend more than 30$ so 15$ a month is that heavy. Also I played oblivion, its ok, jus i guess not my kind of style. CS i already have, but it gets boring, im not too hyped about it like other people.

Company of Heroes is pretty cool, so I'd recommend that one if you have a good video card.

Bah, I find single player games getting too old too quickly. I'd stick with multiplayer..

World of Warcraft has saved me a truckload of money.

$15/month is a lot cheaper than buying a new $50 game every month or two.

Classic Need for Speed games can be hopelessly addictive until you complete them. I'd recommend Need for Speed underground and highstakes. There is always Starcraft and Warcraft III (aka Dota, that's all it's good for IMO). If you haven't beaten Fear, I'd recommend that, also the Fear expansion comes out.. tomorrow I think. If that doesn't do it, play diablo 2... holy sh!t that game is addictive.

Neverwinter Nights 2 comes out soon. You might also like Guild Wars: Night Fall which comes out this week. Free online play never hurts.
