Try Max Payne, POP:SOT (Only if you are playing the console version. Avoid the PC version at all costs), or NOLF 2; all three are great games.

If it were me I'd choose NOLF 2. It's probably my all-time favorite PC game, and you should easily be able to beat it by the end of the semester. The voice acting is excellent BTW. You should definitely take the time to eavesdrop on all the NPCs; it's very entertaining.

Psychonauts, PoP:SoT and Fable are all good games that you should be able to beat in short order. Day of the Tentacle, I'd recommend for historical significance.

Come on, you know you want to beat Wind Waker. Actually, WW is a pretty sweet game, but it takes a long time to finish, and some parts (mostly toward the end) can be very frustrating.

Day of the Tentacle is CLASSIC. Go for it if you can play it on DOSBox or if there's a more Windows-friendly version out there somewhere.

Agreed, on Wind Waker. But, he said that he's only playing PC games.

which one of these has the best multi player aside from the single player?

I don't want the game to be a complete waste of time because I'm really not one for enjoying a story in a game. I wanna be able to play online after I'm done with single player.

I'd suggest you get into NOLF 2, System Shock 2 or Deus Ex. They're all written extremely well and all of them are throughly enjoyable.

Would be funner to have the teach veto it and then have Booger record a direct message for the teacher or even have him call. Now that would be priceless.

Try Halo for PC if you havent or Painkiller or even the newer Tomb Raider you may like them.
PainKiller is addictive so be warned you will have to buy the add on too.

NOLF2 definitely, I love that game with a strong passion, I replay it at least every 3 months, and it should be nice and short giving you enough time to finish it, yet also get the full enjoyment. It also is a blast in multiplayer, but you've got to download the patches that add on deathmatch and Doomsday, which is like CTF/Assault, pretty badass. During the first year I had the game, I would probably play it online every day for at least two hours, I was thoroughly addicted. Though you may have some problems finding decently sized servers, since it has definitely passed its prime.

I'll cast my vote for Deus Ex. Only FPS out there where some of the decisions you make in the game irrevocably change the outcome.

I noticed almost everyone here suggested Deus Ex. Yeah, it's a God Game.

Not Invisible War though...that game was rather disappointing.
