2. Age of Conan
Age of Conan is Eidos Interactive newest presentation that takes you to the dark, abundant and violent continent of the Hyborian Kingdoms. The mighty Conan, who has seized the throne of Aquilonia, now has to fight the ancient evils who are seeking to put an end to his rule. As in all massively multiplayer online role playing games, you have to create your character choosing from three playable races (the Aquilonians, the Cimmerians and the Stygians) and from four class selections (Rogue, Priest, Soldier, Priest and Mage).

4. Counter Strike
For those who love pure action, true competition and unstoppable agony, Counter Strike is the ideal game.
