Borderlands 2 has been fun but not as immersible as I expected. It is a first person shooter dressed up like a ARPG; opposed to a Fallout that is a RPG dressed up like a first person shooter.
It also is having to cheat on graphics by making some areas very dark making enemys hard to spot.
Having not played fps in years, and not very much then, and using a controller for the first time since Sega Genesis, wow. This game has the range of control I always wanted to have, but it's like a tiger by the tail.

And I like the graphics so far. It's like playing in a cartoon.

Usually I stick to Madden. Play some BF3 too, but I don't have too much time for VGs unfortunately.
One of my favorite games, it's amazing.

I played a game for PS2, I think the name was XIII or something, and it looked straight out of a comic, which was the point. Was pretty fun!

Stuck to the Call of Duty series exclusively since 2. Went through two, then started playing online with MW3 and Black Ops. I only sit down about once every 2-3 months. Learning that it's just not enough time to be competitive enough to have fun. Played the Forza Horizon Demo tonight. Another solid release it seems. Perhaps I'll pick it up. Can play that one single player or against my bro at least.

I second that, after having kids online gaing [besides co-op] isnt fun. I dont have the time to put in to be even half competitive

There is always some awesome shot or random grenade that scores a triple kill to keep me hooked no matter how bad I do. I was surprised at how quickly I learned the maps on the new one. It usually takes me months not a few hours. I bet I finally get bored of COD this year!

I've not gotten fond of multi-player MW3. Played through the campaign mode and thought it was lame. Way too short. BF3 seems to be taking longer.

This is the main reason I quit World of Warcraft. I couldn't put the time in to learn the dungeons and would never be able to be online at the same time everyday for raids.
That and my account got hacked and my main toon got stranded on another server. Blizz returned just about all of my stuff but refused to transfer my main toon back to my normal server where all my other toons were.

I never really got down on video games until an old roomate years ago brought home MW2. I was hooked! I ended up buying an XBOX 360 and play when the wife is gone or will allow. She's not to fond of hearing "we have the flag, they captured our flag, they returned the flag" along with machine guns and bombs cranked on the surround sound. I used to play quite a bit until I started Stainless Brewing which took away any free time I ever had. Not complaining about helping people make beer though. It's a pretty cool feeling knowing stuff you provide is going all around the world. ID is ZachAAttacks and I've been stuck on Black Ops multi for awhile now. Others I like to play are BF3 and Red Dead.
