i don't really buy into hype about anything, you should know i'd much rather shit on everything. i mean you say i hate everything. well i love skyrim.
Gotta second this. Haven't played in a long time but... definitely the best gaming experience of the last 10 years


The most recent game I played was Halo 4. Fun challenge on legendary, but shooters are homogenizing fast which is bad news if you're not into COD. I don't want fucking sprint in Halo.

Playing the Orange Box in my spare time. Half Life 3, plz.

Skyrim is basically Oblivon with all of the shitty things about the latter fixed. NO repeating dungeons which in itself is truly amazing. I believe for Oblivion, Bethesda had ONE guy doing dungeons and for Skyrim they had a team of 10+ people, and it shows.

Perfect Dark has aged horribly with the low framerate and frequent slowdown. If that's what's holding you back, check out the XBL HD remake.

i put a good amount of time into sleeping dogs to like it... but the story was stupid the attacks could feel unintuitive and frustrating. it was a cool time waster... but i got it as a gift so its hard for me to say it was worth whatever my friend paid for it

Ive just gone back to Portal 2 for the first time since the steam workshop function was released. Pretty much a bottomless well of new test chambers. Replay value has been exponentially increased.

Me too. I gifted it to my brother this week and of course had to start playing through it again. I don't think any other game has ever entertained me that much with only four characters. Chell doesn't speak, but do Cave Johnson, GLaDOS and Wheatley ever make up for it. Superb writing as well as voice acting.

only stopped because my iMac is old and has rubbish integrated graphics so my chambers took forever to compile for testing. if i had a faster computer i'd probably still be at it

Shit just randomly appeared in my steam library one day a few weeks back. I don't know if everyone got a free copy or what.

I don't get what the big deal is but one thing I've noticed when I've played it is that it has the worst community of any game I've played. People flip out at the drop of a hat.

I'm a big fan of the bioshock franchise (I liked the first better than 2 though) ... and I'm not sure how I'm going to like the new one coming out, but I have a feeling it'll be pretty good.

@redbreegull
Fallout is by far my favorite game franchise on 360 though. I absolutely loved Fallout 3 (the expansions less though) and New Vegas was great as well, but I just really liked wandering around the "capital wasteland" and doing all the side quests. New Vegas is such an immense map/game play that you can spend forever doing all the side quests and each different main quest story line.

fallout 3 felt kind of hollow to me ( but i played it coming right off of skyrim). loved new vegas though.. writing was much better and the world was more interesting at the cost of the 'epic' feel capitol wasteland had.

fallout 4 is going to be announced soon its supposed to be set in boston and be more cyberpunk. i'm pretty hyped about it but i hope its going on the ps4/nextbox. skyrim maxed the fucked out of current systems and full of game breaking bugs

I'd rank FO3 second to Skyrim in terms of open-ended gameplay. You have to be into the setting though which is grim as fuck and rather grey.
