Default Anyone into PC Gaming?

Hey look...a lurker started a thread!

Anyone into PC gaming? If so, what are some good easy games to start with these days? I haven't been into gaming for a really long time and even then wasn't really that much into it.

I'm looking for first person shooter type games and racing/driving games (all Windows PC based). I don't want anything that requires reading a book to figure out how to play (nobody got time for that).

Thanks!!

Doom, Wolfenstein, Resident Evil come to mind.

If you want something with modern action, Call of Duty.

Looks like you are ready for most games. The only game I play on PC these days is a heavily modded Skyrim.

I wonder if there is Galaga for PC. I played that arcade game for hours on one quarter back in the day.

I've been playing for a long time. I play most days, either on line with TFC2, or solo with some older games I've kept over the years. Hell, I still have my original DOOM manual and receipt, but I lost the floppy disks. I just finished playing 3 hours of TFC2 on line.
If you have a good machine, there is a new DOOM that came out - DOOM Internal.

You can also get DOOM 2016 for less than $10 bucks on Steam. Oh, the other game I like is Serious Sam.

Our "big" Christmas present for my brothers and myself in 1972 was PONG.

That was great

Doom Eternal is out now, it looks amazing.

Call of Duty has a new battle royal game that I've watched streamers play and it's wild. But it's best played with two other players and you need to communicate/coordinate a lot to do well.

PUBG (Player Unknown's Battle Ground) is a first person shooter battle royal that has probably the best gun play out there right now. You can pay as a single player, two persons, or up to four man squads. The thing is, the player base is pretty good at the game, you will die a lot at first. A. Lot.

Apex Legends is another FPS, it's sorta like a sci-fi PUBG.

If you want to watch how good gamers play COD or PUBG, check out chocotaco and hambinooo on twitch. Choco is playing both games currently, kinda switching back and forth from one day to the next. hambinooo is playing PUBG pretty much six days a week. If they're not live, just watch one of their recent videos. It will give you an idea of what strats you need to do well.

One of my favorite first person shooter team based games is still TF2 (Team Fortress 2). It's been around since 2007 so it plays on today's low end machines. It's a lot of fun and has different classes for different player styles. ...and it's F2P! (Free to Play) on Steam.
