I am a recovering WoWaholic with almost 4 years invested in World of Warcraft I finally gave up about a year ago. I got pretty hooked on League of Legends mostly because I get to play a character who is a giant Scottish brewer.

I did not like the last GTA but am looking forward to GTV V. They say the world is 3.5x bigger than two old GTAs and Red dead combined. I read they are taking and tweaking some gameplay from red dead redemption which is my favorite game of all time, and making it a big part of the new GTA.

People! I finally saw a trailer for the new hitman game!
Disappointed that it looks kinda clunky but hopefully its smoothed out by the release. Ive only been waiting maybe 12 years for a new one hahahah

share the news if you find a good deal! I'm doubting it since it seems to be the game to get right now.

EDIT: nevermind, it will be $35 for Xbox on Black Friday at Best Buy. Too bad I have a PS3

I didn't like the last GTA either. Way too much driving around from point A to point B. I got tired of searching for on ramps or bridges so I gave up. San Andreas was a huge map but at least I could get around. Vice City was my favorite.

Video Games are my first hobby and are still my primary hobby.
Currently have more games that I can play at one time; lots of great games have been released this year.
I am starting to Love Steam, I can get new games $10 cheaper than XBOX games and after 3-6 months I can pick them up for under 1/2 price; this gives me lots of games in my library.
I still try to buy multiplier games on my XBOX due to the better community but the aging hardware drives me closer to PC with every new release.

Currently playing on Xbox:

Halo 4 came out last week and so far has been a great addition to the series.
But due to the aging hardware they are cheating on the graphics by making the game much darker; this is a deportation from the original series that has very colorful scenery and characters.

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.

Other games that sit near my console but play rarely: BF2, MW3, Red Dead Redemption.


Currently playing on PC:

Tropico 4: not much different from T3,T2,T1 but was cheap and my favorite city building franchise.

Skyrim: 180 hours in and have not completed. I think I am close to 50 mods from the Steam workshop. VERY GOOD GAME, especially with continuous improvements from the community.

Torch light 2: for $20 you get your moneys worth. As a Diablo fan I am very upset with the poorly designed D3 earlier this year, but Torch Light 2 is great and it is unfortunate that I don't get as much time to play it as I would like.

Towns: this is a game developed by 2 guys, it is a fantastic city building game but is still under development. It has been Greenlit by Steam and for $13 I have got my moneys worth.

Witcher 2 was worth the $20 I spent; short with an interesting story.

The 2 Portal games should be required for all PC gamers, takes less than 20 hours to complete both but they are very entertaining.

Purchased LA Noir, the newest Deus Ex, Crysis 2, and Civ4 and haven't even ran them once yet.

Hitman Absolution is Pre-Ordered, will be playing next week.

But I liked the first Planetside back when it was popular. I am not great at the twitchy-finger skills needed to really do well in this sort of game so it was one of the few that I could quit at will.

If my BIL wants to play the new version, I'll probably pick it up.

Currently playing XBow 360's version of,

Borderlands 2, Dishonored, Lego: (Harry Potter 1-4, Star Wars TCS, SW Clone Wars, Indiana Jones, and Pirates of the Carribean), and Battlefield 3.

Took a break from Skyrim not long after the Dawnguard release. I have the Hearthfire DLC but have not played. Might pick it back up once the Dragonborne DLC releases.

Tomorrow night, while my wife is at work, I'm going to sit down and play some Metal Gear Solid 4 while pulling tappers of pumpkin spice ale. Yeah MGS4, I know I'm behind. lol

Usually I stick to Madden. Play some BF3 too, but I don't have too much time for VGs unfortunately.
