Been a while since I PC gamed, and I'm totally back into it. Consoles have aged and just don't impress me anymore. I have a modest new machine with 2600k, gtx580, ssd, 16gig ram.

Just wondering what good games to try that have been out over the past year or so that I have missed.

I just went through. CODBO, Deus Ex HR(awesome), and now metro 2033.Witcher 2 is next.

Are there any good car sims I can try? besides dirt 3

Shift 2 for cars. Terraria for raw awesome PC gaming goodness.

Starcraft II as far as a RTS goes, as darklord said NFS:Shift2 is pretty fun. Battlefield 3 or COD:MW3 both coming soon depending on your style preference. Mass Effect 1,2,3 coming soon if you havent already played them on a console. F1 2011 if your into F1 racing. Terraria also as darklord said. That is about it off the top of my head.

If you liked deus ex, you'd like the mass effect games. Same kinda game. They are both excellent.
I'd throw in Crysis 2. It's good enough to warrant a go at'r. I've been playing fear 3 and it's decent. Also give dead space 1 and 2 a try. Great games.

Blasting brown notes for 10 years and counting!

2nd the Mass Effect recommendation. Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay is one of my top games, If you buy the new expansion, Assault on Dark Athena, it comes with an upgraded version of Escape from Butcher Bay. Don't know about car sims, but theres a whole lot of driving to do in Mafia 2.

Your pc hardly qualifies as modest.

haha, i was thinking the same thing...modest pc...wow! i would love to see what you think is a good one

i'm sporting an athlon II x3 3.2ghz and 4gb ram, hd4830...

thats what i think a modest pc is...good enough for my 720p stuff, but your hardware...bad ass

as far as games, it would be an echo in here...they listed some awesome games. i'm looking forward to NFS: The Run though

Binary Domain is a blast to play.
Tomb Raider 2013 is a wonder to behold.
Seconding Dead Space 1 and 2.
Fez.
Dark Souls.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
XCOM Enemy Unknown.

I think your POS computer should run these decently.
