Canceling my World of Warcraft account, the only game I own, never play it, and when I do it's a waste of my time. Want something more simple that has an online and offline option, basically something that is very entertaining, going to college soon so every now and then I'll be bored in my dorm. Action, adventure, shooter, taking all recommendations except for hunting, racing, platform and arcade games. PC system requirements aren't a problem, just bought a new highly packed laptop.

I reccomend First Person Shooters such as:
FarCry, Halo, Battlefield(s), Red Faction, Call of Duty etc.
Real time strategies:
ALL the command and conquers (they are all amazing), Company of Heroes, Warhammer: Dawn of War series.

They are my specialist areas of games, so Im all out. But they are all fun, addictive and online/ offline compatible and shouldnt prove too difficult to run.

Starcraft, if you don't mind the rather out of date graphics. That game is brilliant.

EVE is a no-no for a casual player Dawn of War is okay for a while but imo gets boring too quick. Could try Warcraft 3 as well (yes I'm a blizzard fan), the game is fun and it has tons of different multiplayer game modes and extra stuff that is quite cool.

Actually, system requirements are a big yes-yes, especially for laptops. Despite what you may think, just because you have a top of the line computer it may not be compatible with certain games. And not only that, but onboard graphics and sound chips often cause problems with most games. Don't be expecting to play many highly demanding games with a high powered laptop.

Diablo II was great, but everyone basically quit it to play World of Warcraft. Can't imagine it is anything like what it used to be.

I'm going on the fact that I could run WoW with everything enabled on huge amounts of graphics and still kept up great frames per second, can handle Half-Life 2 no problem, etc. Laptop or not, unless I'm going to buy the most impressive graphical game and run it on maximum specs, I won't be too worried.

Totally forgot about Rome: Total War, I took a military strategies class in High School, focused on the tactics used by historical war icons, Rome: Total War was used in many videos to show Homer's etc. attacks and the fall of cities. (I also love Roman history) Will definitely check that one out.

Military strategies class and Rome: Total War in it!? I went to the wrong high school

But I'm pretty much a military genius anyway (just ask those ptolemaic people I just made slaves of)
