You just know that I'm going to say Guild Wars 2, don't you...? :D

But having said that - another suggestion would be to get a Steam account. They offer a lot of games which are free to play. Not a bad way to experiment and find something that you'll really enjoy.

I enjoyed Farcry 3, still playing it two years later on Xbox

Loads of sub missions.

If you don't mind language its very enjoyable

Oh at the moment I have Elder scrolls V Skyrim, Tombraider (new one) Borderlands 2 installed.

Yeah I liked FarCry 3 too :).

As TC suggested, a Steam account is a good bet as there are loads of cheap game deals and free ones to play/try. Here's a link to the download: http://store.steampowered.com/

You can sort by free to play, genre, etc... and then order by rank. Once you've picked a few that you like the sound of, let us know and we may be able to recommend which ones are good :).

Heading for sleepness nights and dreaming about the games you play

What if's and could have played better nightmares

The classic for me was Ghost recon...

Always had dreams about playing wondering what would happen if I took a different approach

That's good news! What are you playing at the moment?

I have started with a shoot-em up game called Open Arena a free one as still learning about Linux, but we are getting there, and actually enjoying the Linux experience, more so than when I started with XP all those years ago:thumb::lol::D

And they say miracles don't happen.

I am finding this Linux thing more satisfying than I ever did with Windows and obviously more challenging but that is half the fun you can play with it and it does not break not like Windows. It is quicker to install if you break it providing you have backed up and there is plenty of help out there on the net. Also you do not have to pay to get licences for software like Office and all the other software you need like you do with Microsoft offerings. Yep a very happy bunny.:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:
