Awesome PC Games (Female Gamer Approved!)

Silver Cross
The list author says: "Just wanted to make a list of games that I've liked throughout my gaming life. I will admit, I'm RPG biased, so the list will tend that way. I even listed games that I've heard that are rather good, but when I get around to playing them, I'll update this list.

This is a work in progress, if you have any suggestions, feel free to contact me. =D

Sidenote: You will notice a lack of online games here. Besides the fact that MMO games never end (bad for your real life) and sometimes cost subscription money, I don't like how other gamers treat each other. Call me sensitive, whatever."
Planescape: Torment - PC
Planescape: Torment - PC
"Don't let the cover freak you out. This game has an AMAZING story. It's about a "man" who has lost his memories and can't die. Everytime he dies, he loses more of himself. It covers on topics like human nature, love, betrayal, redemption etc. (Epic!) Normally, I don't play male characters, but this is one of the few exceptions. (Make sure you patch it up and also utilize the fan fixpacks.)"
Dragon Age Origins: Ultimate Edition - PC
Dragon Age Origins: Ultimate Edition - PC
"The plot, although rather common, saving blah (Fereldon) from blah (the "evil" Darkspawn), the characters are what shine through this. Romanceable NPCs (Gender of your character): -Alistair (F): Clumsy but rather sweet -Zevran (F/M): The flirtatious elf -Leliana (F/M): Girl next door type -Morrigan (M): Cold until you befriend her"
Dragon Age 2 - PC
Dragon Age 2 - PC
"Continuation of above. Would say not everyone will like the changes make from its prequel. (I actually do, I think too many fans are nerd-raging this game, not that their points aren't legitimate.) Romanceable characters: (Player character gender does not mater) -Anders: Revolutionary mage, hates templars -Fenris: Former slave, hates mages -Isabela: The lusty pirate -Meril(sp?): Innocent elf girl"

"An RPG classic!"
Baldur's Gate 2: The Collection (Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal)

"Even better than the original! To be quite honest, BG1 feels like a hack and slash compared to the sequel (sometimes); it's THAT much better. I would call this one an RPG legend."
Warcraft III Battle Chest - PC/Mac

"Don't normally play RTS (real-time strategy) games, but I liked the storyline of the main campaign. (Illidan's one of my favorite characters!)"
The Witcher Enhanced - PC

"To play. Heard the story is amazing (some say Planescape Torment level?). Too bad you have to play as a male. The combat is also real time. Maybe I'll play it once I get over these things."
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

"To play. Sequel of above."

"To finish. (Camera gives me a headache) I actually know most of this game's plot, so it's rather interesting. I just need to finish this..."
Mass Effect 2 - PC

"To play. Sequel of above. Mixed reviews from fans. (Some like the changes, some don't.)"
