Games similar to Tomb raider for the PC

Post by bluntspoon » Sat Aug 09, 2014 1:42 pm

Just played through Tomb Raider and thoroughly enjoyed it. Am having trouble finding games in the same vein for the PC. Any suggestions?

Edit: Games Purchased
Far Cry 3
Dues Ex: Human Revolution
Batman: Arkham Asylum

What in particular did you find enjoyable? Just asking to give more specific recommendations.

Storyline was great, puzzle solving was good, but I think the cinematic feel to the game was what did it for me. Felt like I was playing a movie at times during some of the set pieces.

Edit: perhaps another way of saying this is games like Uncharted and the Last of Us, but for the PC.

I'll echo Perfect Villain in that Far Cry 3 has what you are looking for.

I have not. Will look at the first one also.


Far Cry 3 is under $10 on Amazon right now for the DVD version so I bought that too.

For cinematic feel, I'd echo the above re: Deus Ex: Human Revolutions, and add an older but solar game, Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines. VTMB is known to be a bit buggy, but there is a community patch (made by the original game designers among others) that makes it work nicely. Even without that though, I had no problems.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a fantastic game.

I like these games as well, Bluntspoon. Do you play them single player or co-op?

I enjoyed Farcry3, Deus Ex: Revolution, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Resident Evil 5 & 6, The Witcher and most recently Wolfenstein: The New Order.

Some of these are console crossovers, therefore a little buggy. But, I enjoyed them anyway. :)
Happy gaming!

Edit: Bioshock!

I agree with the other recommendations for Deus Ex: HE and Farcry 3. Both fantastic games.
