    I played PES6 (Pro Evo Soccer) for days last week. A month ago I was playing GTA4 the entire time. Next month I will probably keep on playing the new Cycling Manager (PCM).

    It's not a bad game, but not a great game either. I got bogged down a few missions in...

    Playing Betrayal at Krondor. Great game. The graphics didn`t boter me too much, got used to it after about 1 hour. Gotten some nifty spells for Owyn now, and I am really starting to kick ass.

    After playing a bit more I stand by my initial statement: Demon Stone is atrocious. Even though it cost me next to nothing I still regret buying it. The controls are terrible, the AI of your team members is moronic, camera angles are the worst I've seen in a 3D game (and to think I use to complain about NWN...) and the gameplay itself is probably the worst offender. The story and characters aren't bad (nothing great though) and the graphics and voice acting are pretty good, but they're not compelling me to play the game.

    My mother's computer may be dying, so she installed a game called 7 wonders on my computer. It plays like Bejeweled but with different boards and some power ups. It is incredibly addictive...

    I'm playing NOLF 1 now, after which I'm thinking of NOLF 2, Myth 2 and TLJ. So far I'm enjoying myself, even though I'm not that good at shooters and the sneaking rules are pretty random. The outlanding comedy - I'd say Bond parody, even though I only watched Golden eye and Tomorrow Never Dies - more than makes up for it.

    BTW: NOLF = No One Lives Forever, TLJ= The Longest Journey.

    Just finished ToB - my first runthrough from SoA until the end. I only wish I'd had BG so I could have done my first completion from beginning to end. That'll be my next mission though and maybe load up on mods for extra game time :D

    Fallout, I've never played it before and it is very entertaining so far.

    NOLF2 is fun. The extra little things makes it nice. The shooterpart is more than decent. It has that superspy feeling all over it, a bit like the men from UNCLE.

    Haven't really had that much time for gaming so I haven't really picked up one game and focused on it. I have a few oldies that I have been playing on and off for over a decade and that I still haven't completed. Currently trying to finish Catacomb, the original 2D Carmack creation.

    NOLF2 is great fun. The music, the characters, the gameplay, all combine very well into a neat package.

    Heroes of Might and Magic 2,3,4 and 5. Just to make sure 3 is without doubt the best (although I haven't found a copy of the first one).

    After seeing something on TV today about Alexander the Great, I fired up Rise of Nations. I didn't fare so well as he did...

    [​IMG] I had a go at Diablo 2 the other day on my boyfriends laptop.

    I completed PS:T for the umpteenth time, must be about eighteen runs now x_x and still get upset near the end :lol:

    Am currently playing BGtutu with an evil party. Not completed BG1 part as evil before surprisingly, so should be fun. :)

    SHOGO Mobile Armor Division, a neat little FPS by Monolith. It emulates the mood of giant mecha anime quite well with the graphic style, cheesy pop music and an actual story. It's got both levels on foot (which play like a typical FPS) and ones inside the mecha, which feel like a more action-oriented Mechwarrior. The mecha levels are great fun but the game is severaly unbalanced, as mecha levels are very easy and levels on foot are much, much harder.

    BG1 TuTu. First time ever.

    This is a totally different animal from the original BG1. Ahh, the nostalgia...I'm not sure if I like the TuTu version since it's ruining a lot of those old good memories...

    But it's fun enough, running around the enemies with a monk and trying to hit them with a sling... :shake:

    @Rawgrim: :thumb: Betrayal at Krondor's solid. Still have it on my machine.

    Nearly finished BG1 - just have one more quest I want to do and then off to face Sarevok. Finally managed to slog through Durlag's Tower (I was underwhelmed...).

    After that, NWN2 and MotB.

    Battle for Wesnoth. A good freeware turn based fantasy strategy game. Anyone remotely intrested in any of the aforementioned categories should check it out.

    A combination of BG Tutu (nearly there...), Unreal 2004 (I think my computer would explode if I tried to get it to play Unreal 3) and Dawn of War (as a break from the other two).
