Haven't bought any games recently and am looking for something new to play. The last game I picked up was Dragon Age Origins, and I must admit I thoroughly enjoyed it, which was surprising as I thought NWN2 had put me off RPG's altogether, so a rundown of what I have and what I like
Fallout 3 + all addons
One of my favourite games of all time. Can't wait for New Vegas
Loved both of these and am not happy with a sequel outside Rapture. The art-deco style and music made it for me
Crysis, Crysis Warhead
Didn't care for Warhead as much as the original, but still still loved them
1 & 2 have aged badly, but Deadly Shadows is deadly
Loved how this played and felt. In my mind one of the finest games to be made. Didn't think the add ons added anything though.
All Spliter Cell exceot Conviction
I liked Double Agent, but is Conviction any good.
Loved the later ones, Blood Money and Contracts
1 was brilliant, 2 was crap
Stalker + COP + Clear Sky
Loved COP, but the other 2 were Meh!!
Loved it, but wouldn't play it again
Kinda like Oblivion, I enjoyed them, but wouldn't want to play them again
All Command and Conquer
Newer ones have lost that spark that made the originals so much fun
Diablo 1 & 2 + Expansions
So long since I played them, I don't know how I feel about them anymore
Loved these games up until the Gravity Gun, have hated them every since
All NWN and NWN2
NWN2 soured the taste for me
Total War Series
I like them, but they just take too long to play
Didn't like it. It just didn't feel right
There are some other odd games here and there in my collection (eg Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines or World in Conflict) but the ones listed above would be the most popular ones shall we say. Now the list above is not just a list of my games collection, but rather I ma hoping based on the list above that someone can suggest a few games that they think are missing, and would be worth my while picking up.
As you can see there is a lot of FPS games and I've noticed over the last few years that I am more interested in games that I can just pick up and play.
The comment about Total War is the most telling. I haven't got hours to sit down in front of a game build armies, or micromanage a society (ie strategy games).
Neither do I have the emotional interest to invest in developing a character from scratch(ie RPG). Granted Fallout 3 and Dragon Age have soften my stance on the latter point.
So great people of boards, please help me fill out this collection with games you think shoud be included
