It is that time of the month again – time for me to dig out the ol’ game queue and review it once more. My biggest problem at this moment is the fact that there is no single big game out there that I would be really excited about. Well, perhaps except Fallout 3: New Vegas. I am really interested to see how will the tone and writing differ from the Bethesda standard.
Side note: why can’t Bethesda bring back the Morrowind writers back for their next Elder Scrolls game? That game had such an awesome main storyline and setting. Oblivion and Fallout 3 were huge letdowns from storytelling perspective. But I digress.
I will also be picking up Portal 2, Dragon Age 2 and Mass Effect 3 when they come out. But, alas – all of these titles are future releases. There is nothing out there right now that would make me put down World of Warcraft. And yes, I know Starcraft 2 is out. It just doesn’t do all that much for me. I know this might be a blasphemy to some but I don’t even have a strong urge to play it. I probably will at some point, but it’s an RTS. I’m rubbish at these games, and they bore me rather quickly.
Here are the leftovers from my previous game list – things I sort of want to play, but never got around to:
- Neverwinter Nights 2
- Gothic 3
- Mount & Blade
- Planescape: Torment
- Fallout 1 and 2
- Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura
- Dragon Age Origins: Awakening
As you can see bunch of these are are oldies, and one is an expansion for a game that I have uninstalled some time ago to make space for other stuff. I actually have copies of Planescape, Fallout 2 and Neverwinter Nights but I haven’t really played either of these yet.
So here is a question for you: what are you playing right now? Have you played anything worth recommending? What would you suggest that I ad to my list? Also, feel free to mention bad games you would like me to play and make fun of.
