Over the holiday break I was mostly laid up with an virus my lovely wife imparted to me before taking off for Japan. So, I spent most of the time playing video games rather than doing anything which involved physical activity or meeting other people in person so I could avoid spreading my illness.
In no particular order, I played through the following:
Black Mesa -- excellent remake of Half-Life in Half-Life 2 engine
Metro 2033 -- Fantastically atmospheric shooter set in a post-nuclear Moscow underground tunnel system
with occasional detours above-ground
Spec Ops: The Line -- a military shooter with a great narrative story largely cribbed from Heart of Darkness/Apocalypse Now
Quantum Conundrum -- an above-average puzzley physics game made by the person who designed Portal 1&2. which, if you haven't played them, you really should because they are fantastic and you can get them dirt cheap nowadays
The Walking Dead -- excellent episodic choose-your-own adventure style game based on the comics/TV series. I thought the writing in the game was much better than the series. The gameplay was "average" I guess but the incredible story and writing really make up for that.
Hotline Miami -- super fun ultraviolent retro action game where you go around contract killing people. It gets more and more surreal as the game progresses
And I also played some "classic" games although I didn't get through them by the time I got back to work. On my iPad I have been playing through the original Bard's Tale mostly for nostalgia, and I also have been playing through the original Fallout on my laptop, not for nostalgia because when it came out I could never get the damn game to install and run properly. But, now I can so I'm playing it.
