    "Expertly balanced gameplay experience, lots of content, high polish... not so many downsides of Far Cry 3, unless we consider some occasional texture glitch... I'm a fan i must say"

    "Bioshock is a lot of fun. It may seem old by now, but it is one that I return to multiple times. My nephew was disappointed because his computer can't really handle a lot of the newer games, but he lit up when I got him a copy of Bioshock. It looks and runs great on his system and he has been having a blast."

    "Sniper Elite is an intricate shooter game that relies on complex planning far more than repetitive shooting. The authentic mode makes it so you have to contend with wind speed, scope drift and more. There is a certain satisfaction to be gained from learning all of the complexities; this game requires quite a bit of time to play."

    "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is a gaming classic at this point in time. It doesn't take too much of a beefy PC rig to run this game which is great. I think this is worth checking out, especially for someone new to the series."
