Another vote for Left 4 Dead here. Freaking awesome game, especially if you play with buddies and have mics. There are supposed to be more levels out for it soon too (before Christmas I heard).

I bought the game (L4D) from someone on Redflagdeal forum for 40$

I paid via paypal, than he added me as a friend on steam and sent me the game as a gift!
It's a bit risky, bu the guy had some good backups

Add inikurmoma to your friend list and message me to play

Left for Dead if you want multiplayer. If not, then definitely Dead Space.

What do you have now(online games), and what is your genre preference(I know it's FPS but what kind)
