I just bought Final Fantasy XIV, and I can't get over 8-10 FPS, even on the title screen. My computer runs Windows 7 64-bit, has 6 gigs of RAM, has an ATI Radeon 5450 HD graphics card, has 180 gigs of hard drive space available, and is defragged once a week. I have tried running the game directly after a restart and with no background programs on. I found something online about Razer Game Booster
, so I downloaded that and gave it a shot. Nothing changes the 8-10 frames per second I'm seeing. How can I fix this?

The boyfriend's having FPS and sluggish gameplay issues in one specific game -- "World of Warcraft." His computer is more than powerful enough to, in theory, run it without any problem, and it used to. What gives? [more inside]

I used to play a FPS on my PC back in the 90's. I can't remember the title of it, however I remember one of the weapons. [more inside]

When we left our heroine, it was 2002 and she was an avid JRPG player, wise in the ways of the spiky haired menu-based combatants. She returns, older if not wiser, to do battle again, in--okay, wait, what are all these games, and why do they expect me to know how to play them already? Help me find some training wheels, experienced gamer-types. [more inside]

My home built gaming PC has sub-par FPS. Nothing is obviously wrong, how do I go about diagnosing the cause? I don't know where to start. Lots of details inside. [more inside]

Trying to remember the name of a game that dealt with you being a character in a world where Apophis struck and devastated the world. First person, I think. A Fallout 3-style of things if I remember decently.

My sister loves
playing co-op shooters. Can you recommend any? Our systems are the PS2, and a PC running Windows XP that was middle-of-the-road 3-5 years ago (so no Army of Two, thank you). Freeware/shareware/indie are great, but so are huge blockbusters. It just needs to have as long, good, co-op section.

Hope me find an older game with co-operative multi-player.
I am looking for older technology games (video cards at least 2 years old) that allow LAN players to team up and fight AI opponents.
FPS preferably, but RTS or other game suggestions are welcome.
Please don't recommend RPG's this is for casual play without time investment. [more inside]

Did you play first person shooters in the early 90s? Help me figure out the name of this obscure and relatively mediocre WWII game based on the incredibly limited amount of information I remember about it! [more inside]

I'm giving away an old tray-loading iMac (256MB, either 266 or 333Mhz, I really can't recall right now) to a friend and have loaded it up with productivity-related stuff. Now I'm looking for games I can download. Freeware and shareware, preferably, as opposed to warez (although if you care to recommend a NES/SNES/etc. emulator ...). In particular, is there a decent FPS I can download for this machine? [more inside]
