It's been a long time coming, but over the last week I finally upgraded my computer. It's a nice feeling having a system that no longer chokes when I have 10 webpages open, and believe me, that makes doing the recaps a lot easier. It had been over five years since my last major overhaul... I remember distinctly wanting to get my system ready for Half Life 2 and World of Warcraft.
With this added computational tumescence, I can now play a lot of games I've had to pass on previously, simply because my machine couldn't handle them. The problem is... there're several of these, and I'm not exactly sure which to tackle first. So, I thought I'd leave it to you, recap fans. Here are the options:
Gears of War. I don't own an Xbox 360, but I know this is one of the more influential games of this generation.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. I'm told this is the epitome of first person shooting though I doubt I'll touch the multiplayer, especially since the sequel has drained the playerbase.
Borderlands. I'm late to the party on this one (though not as late as I am on CoD:MW), so I'm guessing I'd end up playing solo, which may defeat the purpose of the game.
No matter what, I'm gonna be shootin' dudes in the face. I guess when you come right down to it, it's all about exactly what kind of dudes you think I should shoot. Leave your answers in the comments and I'll begin with whichever game has the most votes by Thursday.
