    Default Good games that run on Windows XP?

    I just built a Windows XP gaming comp. Its a 2.80ghz Pentium 4 (so single core), 512 ram (though the motherboard can be upgraded to 2gig), with a Geforce 4 ti4200 and a Soundblaster Audigy 2. In other words, a comp I would've considered a powerhouse at the time, but it can only run Doom 3 on medium settings.

    But ya know... got new hardware, wondering what games to run on it.

    Games I already own are Doom 3, but also the Myst series (I got all of them in a box last year) and Medal of Honor: Allied Assault. But this was the period where I basically stopped paying attention to PCs so I'm not sure if there's any underappreciated XP gems to look out for.

    (EDIT: It just occured to me that in my "list" I forgot to mention Windows 98 games that also have XP compatibility, so I probably have more than I think I do).

    So, suggestions?

    Well, I guess the question is: whaddayawanna play? I'm assuming FPS games and visual puzzlers by what you have on there now.

    While I didn't game a ton on PC, here's what I can think of:


    Freedom Force
    Star Trek:Elite Force
    Tron 2.0
    Elder Scrolls: Morrowind
    Pirates Gold might work
    Civilization 2 or 3
