Now that I've finally got some spare time on my hands I'm kind of interested to rediscover a few things that I enjoy - books & beer, weekends doing things outside my study etc, computer games!

I been out of touch, not played a PC game for nearly 2 years. I have no idea what great games I've missed in that time - so I'm looking for advice - strategy type games - like the total war series, or RPG's, championship manager (No wait, that's always good).

Any advice welcome? (I'll take all the sarky remarks no doubt coming my way if I get one gem of a game).

Get Company of Heroes - original one, not the expansion (Opposing Fronts are not as good as original), this is WW2 RTS, but superb one - it is probably the first RTS since Warcraft that really blown me away.

The RTS element is not that important - graphics is awesome.

Also you can try BioShock if you liked System Shock then you should like it too.

Football Manager is better than Championship Manager -Sports Interactive lost the rights to the CM name, but kept the basis of the game and the database, and bought the name Football Manager. Much, much better.

There's a whole world out there!

Take up S.C.U.B.A Diving, Hang Gliding, Climbing, Skiing, Motocross, Trails Riding.

Real excitement, not secondhand or fantasy thrills.

Diver, your making the assumption that wanting to play computer games = musn't get out much.

I do plenty of adrenalaine sports, and I do some sort of fitness stuff around 5 days a week, so relax with the getting out advice. I'm just after some decent PC games to play on a wet, winter wednesday night when my daughters in bed and I got some spare time.

Supreme Commander is supposed to be nice, and allegedly supports dual screens.
