Hi, I hope this doesn't belong in the spam box, but anyway: I am growing out of the graphics and low realism of Star Wars: Jedi Academy, and I am looking for a game that keeps me busy for a very long time, is adventurous and covers a lot of nature, looks semi-realistic and has a good physics engine. I also would like to eventually be able to mod it. Oblivion seems to fit that description very well, but I was wondering if anyone else had any better games in mind.

I am also a Christian, so the game I buy must have no nudity at all and little to no language if I am to buy it.

My computer specs are: Socket 478 P4 3 Ghz CPU, 1 GB 3200 RAM, and a Nvidia FX5500 256 MB graphics card.

Thanks for reading this and bearing with me. Replies would be apreciated. :)

You can try Prince of Persia : two thrones. But theres quite a short story there with no multiplayer, but if you can get it for 20-30 bucks its pretty worth it in my opinion. (Linear plot/storyline, Awesome ways to engage enemies. Great graphics, enough to distract you from physics) -OR-

Tribes Vengeance, if you meant realistic by non-fantasy too, this MAY make some sense as it has modern architecture and technology. As long as your not so pessimistic. (Not much physics but enough to keep you busy with certain features. If you can get it cheap, it is recommended)

-OR-

Half life 2, you should be able to play it fine~ I had a Radeon X300 and could play it smoothly at all low(some medium) so you shouldn't have any problems playing it. P.S. it looks great even at low-medium graphics. (Not much wall/obstacle breaking physics but the others are pretty fine, great graphics, great storyline, enough to keep you busy for awhile, even better if you decide to get Episode 1 & 2)

They look interesting, thanks for that info! I have downloaded the HL2 demo and I can run it on full graphics with a good framerate but it crashes occasionally. I don't really like the zombie storyline and all of the bloody zombies that don't die, but I may get it anyways because of the amazing graphics. The other two games look neat, but I haven't looked into them that much. Anyways, thanks for that info. So... Anyone else have any favorate medieval games?

I don;t think so... i could only suggest RTS games, but whether they're to your liking or not, i don't know. You could always try Conan! (Only joikng, theres a fair bit of nudity xD) I would also suggest Deus Ex... i can't remember whether it swears much or not, but i know it certainly doesn't have anything worse than sh*t (If at all). Others may be able to help you with this, i don't really play PC games anymore.

seancsnm;4346444Hi, I hope this doesn't belong in the spam box,

Why would you even think that? That makes no sense at all.

Just curious why being a Christian (I notice you didn't specify a particular denomination) would forbid you from playing games with nudity or swearing. I'm Catholic, and I have no problem with nudity or swearing, but I do prefer it when they are used in a fitting context (i.e not just random cursing for no apparent reason, I mean a Vietnam game yeah, but if Mario started effing and blinding, might be a tad offputting, if humourous at first) If you want to go down the "its a sin" path, well, technically so is the spilling of blood (hence why Priests, Monks and other Holy men in the Middle Ages used blunt weapons, not blades, since Holy Orders fobade the cutting of flesh).

Sorry if this is way offtopic, its just i've heard this said many times and as a Catholic, really struggle to see peoples problem.

I don't know if I can answer your question very well, but I will just use the 10 commandments for an example, because they are the simplest set of rules in the Bible. The Bible says a believer will sin, and God will forgive you if you ask forgiveness, but if you intentionally sin and use "God will forgive me when I'm done" as an excuse continually, you probably aren't truly saved. Seeing nudity/hearing swearing does not necessarily mean you are sinning right away, unless you like it, but eventually, you will find yourself wanting it, which is a bad thing.

The blood part is something that doesn't bother me and does not make me want to murder something, and blood is a natural thing, especially in the pre-Christ time when people had to continually sacrifice sheep. Overall, what goes in to your mind is not sin, how you handle it determines whether it is sin or not, and I don't handle nudity very well.

To answer your question, I am of the Christian denomination, which is the original one in the New Testament of the Bible. Don't worry about getting off-topic, because I believe the thread is already dead.

So you consider violence to be a lesser issue than profanity or sexuality? Going by the way of nature, one could say that nudity is on the safe side as well, since people slept together long before someone had the idea to write the pentateuch, let alone the new testament.

I just find it slightly hypocritical to be honest, but I guess it's your thing.

Me, I'd also probably advise you to look into Tribes Vengeance.

I don't really like the blood and gore in a game, it is just almost impossible to find a modern game without it, and I don't consider it morally wrong. I don't even play games much, I mostly make mods for JKA, which is a very clean game, but I am getting tired of it's low quality graphics and physics engine. I'm not surprised that you think it sounds hypocritical, but would it sound any less crazy if I said I wasn't a Christian? I can't make you see things my way, so I won't try. I will look at tribes of vengeance, but I have my eye on TES: Oblivion, but I am worried about the fact that my PC is on the low end of the minimum requirements list, but it seems to be my dream game. You are probably thinking that I am even more hypocritical because of the "Invasion from hell" storyline. I don't see that as wrong because their perception is far from reality.
