I wouldnt go with doom3, i didnt have too much fun playing it for very long. Farcry is an awesome game. Black & White 2 is also a lot of fun. If you like racing games check out Need For Speed: Most wanted. Other thans those i cant really rec. any more.

i think this depends on your opinion on what a good game would be. My personal opinion is to get need for speed most wanted, or sims 2

already have the sims 2. not sure if the xpacks are worth the money tho and i dont have a gamepad,joystick or steering wheel so sports, driving and flying games aren't gonna be the best for me

already have COD2 and BF2:SF
problem with getting far cry and doom is that they're both kind of horror style and i've had F.E.A.R. for a few weeks now and still afraid to install it. don' think i could handle 2 more...

far cry isn't horror, doom is. Far cry is kind of like BF2 except you're alone. You drive boats, gliders, buggys, etc and had nice graphics with splendid views, like plants and stuff, even fish underwater... awesome game
