I'm looking for a very deep (good storyline) and involving (gets you into it) as well as a decent replay value and nothing like these 6 hour games that have been showing up lately. Must be from 2001-present (Otherwise theres compatibility issues with my widescreen monitor and resolution support. Although some in my list I manage with because I like em.) Any ideas cause I'm banging my head on the keyboard attempting to look for a game that will keep my interest long after its been beaten once.
Current list of Games I own:
Chronicles of Rid****: Assault on Dark Athena FarCry 2 Half Life 2: Episode pack Saints Row 2 Crysis/Warhead/Wars Wolfenstein Grand Theft Auto IV (With episodes) Just Cause 2 (Damn steam for breaking BOLOPatch...) Dragon Age: Origins/Awakening Bully (its a classic...) StarWars: Force unleashed Oblivion (another highly modifiable classic StarWars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords (Disc one is broken :'( ) Assassins Creed I/II Stranglehold Starwars: Empire at war Starwars Knights of the old republic StarWars: Battlefront StarWars: Republic Commando (Starwars game pack... sue me) Starwars: Jedi Knight II - Jedi Outcast The Witcher: Enhanced edition Alpha Protocol Prototype Red Faction: Guerrilla Borderlands (Not as much fun as my friend made it out to be) F.E.A.R 1 & 2 Mafia 1 & 2 Mass Effect 1 & 2 Spore
Divinty 2 ego draconas S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat Call of Duty: World at War Batman: Arkham Asylum
Long list I know, just putting it out there so people don't suggest games I already have. These are games I ended up liking after playing them and ended up buying them (I really HATE the no refund policy on PC games... >.>) I've tried alot of the newest ones (do not suggest starcraft II... I'm not touching that till blizz updates it in a major way)
I don't know how this game came up to my mind, it's old (2001) but I still think it got a good storyline and an enjoyable gameplay.

in refrence to the batman suggestion, Also looking for replayability.
Warbrand is a bit strange for a game, its well designed except for story. **** Company: So what about a story line? How about a reason for what the player is doing? Developer: Meh... We will sort that out later. **** Thats the only downside I see so far.
as for Resident Evil 5. It's a fast paced game with a slow-paced shooter. You have a load of zombies coming at you and you say, "Yeah, can you all just line up and come one at a time? I can't move when I'm shooting you know!" Or the knife... how useless is that when you run out of ammo?
Personally I would of at least liked to be able to walk with the gun drawn and fire while moving.
Storyline was a bit weak too and the scares were nothing like the old-school R.E. that I grew up with. Graphics were pretty though o.o R.E. 5 is a download and toss.
However I ended up buying Mount & Blade: Warbrand. Personally I like my version of "try before you buy". Sucks PC's get no slack when it comes to refund policies. I honestly think they should rent out games with special serial numbers that are only valid for like 3 days to a week.
Anyway, batman=no, R.E. 5=No, even though they threw in some RPGish elements (weapon upgrades and such) but still a pretty fail game. A shadow of it's scary, freakish, keep-you-awake-at-night gameplay that was golden back through 1-3.
