For PC:
- SystemShock2 
- Thief series (although there's less shooty going on in here) 
- NoOneLivesForever series
- FEAR (first game)
- HalfLife series
- Anything made by iD

For PS3:
- Dishonored
- Bioshock series
- Darkness series

If you get back in the mood for FPS/RPG hybrids:
- DeusEx (1 & HumanRevolution)
- Vampire:The Masquerade
- Stalker:Shadow of Chernobyl

- Far Cry 2
- Far Cry 3 (coming soon)
- Rainbow Six Vegas 
- Rainbow six Vegas 2
- FEAR 1
- FEAR 2 (FEAR 3 was garbage)
- The Darkness 1 (The Darkness 2 was only 5 hours long)
- Battlefield: Bad Company 1 (fantastic single player campaign)
- Killzone 3 (you can pick up the multiplayer for $15.00 on the PSN)
- Crysis 1 (get the PS3 version for $19.99 on the PSN)
- Metro 2033 (next to The Darkness 1 and FEAR 1, this game is one of the most atmospheric games you can buy...awesome!)

You should try black mesa, it's free and it runs on the source engine.  Or play the stalker games, those are fantastic and similar to fallout.

First F.E.A.R game is worth a try.



I agree with this. Fear 1 on PC is probably the definitive Fear game - while the others are still good as shooters, they do stray from the 'psychological horror' aspect that made the first game so daunting


Black Mesa is also definitely worth a try since it's free, as the above poster mentioned. If you haven't played any Half Lifes, you might as well get them all (1,2,Episode 1, Episode 2) since they are cheap and will likely run on lower-end computers, unless your laptop is very severely low-specced.


Regarding Metro 2033 - it won't run on your laptop, I can almost guarantee that. If it actually does, it'll won't be playable.

Regarding Borderlands 2 - you should play it regardless of your reservations. Fantastic game. Clocked more hours on that than any game in recent history that I've played

Excellent suggestions here.
