    Suggest a linear-ish FPS/3rd-person game with campaign?

    So I finished Doom Eternal recently and loved it. I started playing Rage 2 and while the shooting feels great I don't have it in me to play a open-world game, and just feel like a lot of companies are making "open-world" games to artificially pad a game with extra "play time." I am playing Gears...

    Sony may be working on a new portable gaming console.

    A recent job posting for Sony for a "Head of Mobile, PlayStation Studios" seems to suggest Sony is either looking at mobile gaming again, or something else... "...the job listing is looking for someone to "Build and execute against a mobile 3-5yr business plan," meaning that Sony might be...

    Are there ANY good "modern-themed" team-based shooters today that are like what Counter Strike Source used to be (other than CS: GO)?

    I haven't played a good team-based multiplayer shooter in a very long time. CSS was the last one I played and I was really good and competitive at the time... I was in the beta and then our clan had our own server and everything... I also played a lot of UT2K4 but that was just against the bots...

    Brought a launch fat backwards compatible PS3 back to life and wanted to share.

    I don't have many people to share this with so I thought i'd share it here. A little background... When the PS3 launched it was really hard to get. A good friend of mine got his hands on two... the 60GB model and the 20GB model. He sold me the 20GB model for retail cost. I was always fond of the...

    I desperately need help. I have no idea what's going on here...

    I will try to keep this as short as possible. I made a gaming computer for my wife out of used older PC parts. A Optiplex 3020 with Quad Core i5, 8gb RAM, RTX 2060, and bought a 700 Watt power supply to replace the one in the Optiplex along with a 1080p monitor. She had a fully working gaming...

    There's a million BIOS options to download for the GA-A320M-S2H. Please help me with which I need.

    I just need to know which of these I need to install. Some say, before you install this, install the other one, and so on and so on. But I have been trying to figure out which of these to install and in what order but it's just confusing me so hoping someone can enlighten me...

    I was able to build my wife her first ever gaming PC. After such a terrible year last year I was so thrilled to see her so happy.

    I didn't know where else to share this, and thought i'd share it with everyone here. I've been planning this for months. I couldn't afford much, and everything in this computer build is used. The motherboard, CPU, and memory are from a Dell workstation from my work that was going to be scrapped...

    What's with these prices? Just trying to find a simple card for wife and i'm floored at the pricing.

    I wanted at most to spend $300 on a card, and all I am seeing is even the most basic cards on EVERY website going for over twice retail. I guess i've been out of the loop for a long time, but it's really disheartening that I finally go to build my wife her own PC that she's been wanting and I...

    EVGA RMA sent be back a different card? This ever happen to anyone else?

    So I sent in my GPU to EVGA which was the RTX 2080 Ti XC Gaming and they sent me back a XC Ultra. I opened the box and immediately noticed how incredibly massive this card is... it's over 2x as thick from the look of it than my previous card. Luckily I had room in my case, but I was worried it...

    Is my video card going bad? Something is REALLY weird here...

    So I mentioned in another thread my 2080ti wasn't "idling" and that it was stuck at a constant 1350MHz/7000MHz... it's still doing that however something else weird is going on. So the other day I noticed Resident Evil 3 at max settings was performing abysmally bad. At 1440p with all settings...

    A "[H]ard" surface mouse pad?

    I ordered a XL Mousepad a while ago but returned it b/c I don't like soft mousepads... my hands get sweaty and it just feels terrible. Are there any Large surface area hard surface mousepads? I am having a lot of trouble finding a mousepad with a "hard" surface to it.

    Visage. First-person psychological horror. Spiritual successor to P.T.?

    So I received an email from Steam that Visage is finally available. It's been on my waitlist for a while since it seemed to be a lot like P.T. (RIP). Steam reviews seem "Very Positive," but I was curious if anyone here has played it yet or has any impressions...

    Freedom Fighters.

    I can't stress how much you need to play this game if you've never played it before. Made by the same folks who made Hitman and came completely out of left field back in 2003. Incredible soundtrack, great story, great atmosphere, decent enemy AI for the time, decent squad-based action, and is...

    COD: Modern Warfare (2019) is the first multiplayer shooter i've played in 16 years. Just some thoughts...

    So this may be kind of a long post but this is more of a story/gripe I wanted to share who play the same game and maybe this post is geared more towards people who are closer to my age (33). So as my title says this is the first multiplayer game in a very very long time. I joined the Counter...

    Nvidia Highlights, Game Bar, and recording group chat audio?

    I wasn't sure where to this put this so I apologize if this is the wrong place, but my buddies and I have been playing Warzone quite a lot. They are all on Xbox and I am on PC. Whenever I record Highlights or gameplay through the Nvidia overlay it only records/plays back the party chat audio of...

    Need a quick tip for case fan control.

    So I've been playing a lot of Warzone lately and I've noticed my Micro-ATX build getting hotter than usual, and I realized that all my fans in my case are all just plugged in to run... none of them are thermally controlled. I think the only fan in my case that is thermally controlled is the CPU...

    I have my gaming headphone plugged into the front two audio ports for audio and microphone, and I have computer speakers plugged into the rear audio out port. Is there any way to output audio to both the front and back at the same time?

    Have any of you played the original Far Cry lately???

    Holy shit is it hard. I had read that apparently a patch was released for it that made enemies see through all kinds of cover, but I have the GOG version and not sure if any other version of the game has that problem. In any case I have been playing the original Far Cry again after not playing...

    I feel like the majority of gaming communities are trash and negatively affect gaming as a whole.

    This may come off as a rant, but I feel like this issue is very important since a lot of us enjoy gaming and have for many years. I was reading this thread on Reddit about how the Steam forums for Borderlands 2 are being inundated by people who bought Borderlands 3 through the Epic Store. Now...

    Dell G7 7790 w/ RTX 2060. Repasted and Undervolted. 1st timer! Now I am a true believer!

    So full disclosure... this was my first re-paste and because of that I don't have AS MUCH data for you guys from before I repasted. So the first thing I did was do a Firestrike score right out of the box without any modifications on this guy after reinstalling a fresh install of Windows 10 on...
