Dragon Age: Origins for the PC
Good call, it's a very good RPG on a console, but it's even better on the PC.
Enjoyed it on the PC too. I've just completed Leliana's Song for it. It's a little short and not unfamiliar enough for my taste, but it did remind me of what I've been missing.

On another note, I've been giving KOTOR2 a retry, this time on Win7-64. Works for me

ST: Birth of the Federation. Currently playing a modded version of the game.
This time last year I use to play ST-BOTF a lot (and MOO2). But today I decided on buying Galactic Cilivization 2 (I know it's an old game). About to play it for a few hours, after watching my Eels win.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I just picked up InFamous for the PS3; pretty cool game and I am already liking it better than a similar sandbox game GTA4 because there is no driving!

And I can dive bomb enemies.

I just finished up my very first play through of Deus Ex. A pretty good game, though I didn't think it was quite as great as everyone said it was (though maybe it was because I played it 10 years later).
The real niftyness shows up when you play it again, and do everything differently. Will Sandra reconcile with her father, or run away and become one of the bums at the gas station? Or will you even save her at all? Will Paul survive or die? When will you choose to kill Anna-----you have at least 3 different options on that score? Where will you fight Walton Simons: in the undersea labs, or at Area 51? Will you find an entire area of Hong Kong you completely missed the first time?

I gave up on GTA 4 because it got too frustrating trying to weave through traffic to catch a guy who can drive perfectly.

Dragon Age: Origins on Xbox360. Playing as a human warrior, recruited the elves and mages so far and now busy in Orzammar. Although the graphics are dated, it's an excellent game so far. When I finish it (over 35 hours into it) I might replay it with a different race and class.

Puzzle Quest on the PSP. Matching gems is always fun!

The chases in GTA4 were too damned scripted. In previous games you could do some nifty driving and cut a guy off in a few seconds... in GTA4 it played like a cut scene. You're best off just slowly trailing the guy until the game decides you've done enough chasing. Kind of a slap in the face to the whole concept of open sandbox gameplay if you ask me.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Warcraft III... I feel really antiquated and out-of-date compared to all of your shiny, expensive, high-end home consoles. My computer would probably catch on fire if I tried plugging anything more modern than early 2001 in.

That much is true, the chases were immersion-breakingly overscripted, especially if you're a good driver and/or in a superior vehicle.

Overly scripted missions generally defeat the point of the whole sandbox experience.

On topic: Finished the campaign in Halo Wars, extremely satisfying experience from a Halo lore perspective (ZOMG, it's a Shield World ), but also surprisingly fun in terms of gameplay (while simplified in many respects, the controls work pretty damn well - considering this is a console RTS).

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Currently doing a re-run of Mass Effect 2 (only this time with the Overlord and Kasumi DLC). Which is just perfect because I have other games that need finishing (and starting!). Including, but not limited to, Oblivion, Prototype, and Final Fantasy XII.

Yes, I'm procrastinating on video games. I'm just that awesome.

Indeed, GTA 4 biggest problem especially when actually a few were unscripted but you didn't have a clue when that was unless you wanted to waste shit load of ammo at the sake of your driving while you shoot to test the theory out.
