    As a complete amateur to the gaming world, I thought I'd post a thread looking for advise from those in the know. I would like to buy a game for a 38 year-old guy and know that he has enjoyed Tomb Raider, Rally Driving, Splinter Cell, FIFA etc. Are there any new'ish games that are guaranteed to thrill!?

    The games i've enjoyed most on PS2 are -

    - Pro evolution soccer 3 -best football game
    - Final Fantasy X & FF X-2 -2 great role playing games
    - Gran Turismo 3 -Superb racing game
    - Fight Night 2004 -innovative & fun boxing game
    - Socom 2 -superb online shooter (only buy if he's got his PS2 online)
    - Need for Speed Underground - Fun & fast arcade racer!
    - Rez - great 3D shoot em up with cool music and vector graphics!
    - Virtua Fighter 4 evolution -The best beat em up!
    - ESPN NHL Hockey 2K4 -In depth & Fun Ice hockey game
    - ESPN NFL Football 2K4 - As above but American Footy!
    - Cricket 2004 - Brilliant cricket game (even if you don't really like cricket!)

    Spiderman 2 has just come out and that's supposed to be good as well, not played it personally.

    If he hasn't got Pro Evolution Soccer 3 then get him that - it's platinum now so you can get it for less than £20!! Amazon do it for £16.99 & you may be able to find it even cheaper! Should give him enough time to practice before PES 4 comes out on October 22nd!

    GT4 Prologue is good but he might want to wait until the full version is out in November.

    Agreed, I enjoyed Prologue a lot for what it is. Pretty cheap but if he hasn't got GT3 then that will provide more gaming action for his money (GT3 has been on platinum for a while so you should be able to pick this up for between £10 & £20.
