What good singeplayare games and great movies do you recommand me?
In 20 July I'll be cut off from the internet, TV and phone at my moms house, my parents divorced and my mom can't afford to pay all these...
And I want do download some games and movies I'll use later so I have them on my PC.

I'll still visit the forums frequently because I can go at my dad's place and he has a better PC there and he also has internet.

Games:

Hitman: Blood Money
Prototype
The Warhammer: DoW games
Stalker
Oblivion
Fallout 3/New Vegas
GTA IV
Dead Space 1/2
Splinter Cell series
Just Cause 2
ARMA 2 w/ expansion

I tried listing games that have a lot of replay value. I've been in a similar position before, so I can appreciate having to make due with what I dled in preparation for disconnection.

Movies:

http://www.imdb.com/chart/top
http://www.nytimes.com/ref/movies/1000best.html

I also suggest getting a bunch of tv series. They'll last longer.

@Sky: He's asking for recommendations for movies and games, not for places to download ****.

If you can run Deux Ex, get The Witcher 2. Also, skip OF:RR and get ahold of Dragon Rising. It's a lot better.

Also, what good RPG do you recommend? (my brother asks)
The first Witcher, Mass Effect 1/2, Dragon Age if you're into that kind of thing (Personally, I couldn't get into it until I got what amounted to an overhaul mod), Divinity 2 (whichever is the enhanced one on steam), and the ones already mentioned. Loads of replay value, but I suggest getting mods for Oblivion and the Fallouts. It makes them infinitely better.

Look at series you haven't watched yet.
Those can be a few seasons long. We all have a few series we'd love to see but never had, or made the time for.

Also, I'm sorry to hear about your situation. It might be rough at first, but it eases out pretty quickly, that's my experience anyway.

Warez is strictly forbidden on the forums. Not the best place to ask.
Oh wow. He's talking about his parents divorcing and what he can do to occupy himself, and he just barely mentions downloading and you immediately accuse of pirating, and that's it? That's cold and slightly disrespectful, in my eyes anyways. He was just asking for SP games and movies.

Anyways, if you want a fast paced game, I'm going to sound typical but Modern Warfare 1+2 are pretty legit if you just want to mob around gunning people with a pretty decent 'epic' story.

Also, if you're looking for good TV shows, get Dexter. Dexter is ******* phenomenal. Season 1, 2 are amazing, season 3 could of been a bit better but it's important for story, and Season 4 is ******* OH MY GOD BRILLIANT.

Also, I'm sorry to hear about your parents. That **** sucks man.

'Why do people divorce so much' - simple question, because our government wants to see it's people suffer.

@thread starter

Minecraft with HD Ultra mod (if your obsessed with graphics) will waste alot of time, maybe you can try build Hogwarts, or Stargate Universe(lol).

what


Anyway, I'd say audiosurf is a good time killer, given you have a decent music stash. Simple arcade-ish tomfoolery.

Totally offtopic, but Gothic 4? WTF? It's the worst action/rpg wannabe. (and that's ignoring the fact that it's totally not a Gothic game)

I didn't particularly enjoy the combat in the previous Gothic games, so wanted to see if they made any changes.

Also that list was started ages ago, at a time when Rpgs were scarcer than any info on Skyrim. I have left Two Worlds 2 and Arcania for a time when I have played everything else and I thirst for a some simple Rpg goodness. I have learned long ago not to put weight in reviews or even fan critics, since I've found my tastes to vary quite a bit in some cases.
 
Now with Kung-Fu action!

Any of Civilisation series are good time wasters. It's a shame I lose every time! Max Payne 1/2 and the Unreal series are also pretty good for singleplayer. I'd avoid Unreal Tournament 3, it's not the friendliest thing to run and the singleplayer isn't that great.
