PC games suggestion...

...for christmas. got a brand new puter and thinking of getting a game (notice i said A game). criteria would be the folowing:

1)strategy or war game

2)looong, meaning MONTHS of playing

3)excellent graphics and/or sound


been a console gamer all these time and wanna see what's the big hoopla about pc games.

went to walmart and saw warcraft111 and something something generals.

any suggestions?

Operation Flashpoint. Best game ever.

Fulfils all you criteria apart from 3. The graphics are shit.

But if you get the gold edition (which contains 2 mission packs and is probably pretty cheap) you will be occupied for ages.

Warcraft 3 is pretty good, if you want a RTS game.

If you are looking for a war fps then get BF1942..
