Video Games

Now I have to say I consider Video Games to be one of the lowest form of Gaming. Its not that I dislike them in any way, but in my years as a gamer I have come to the realization that there are stereo-typical gamers for each Genre. And In my experiences the worst of these Stereo-Types are found either in Video Games or Card Games. And often they are the same people. This sums up how I feel I think

That being said I LOVE video games. I was addicted to EQ for years before I finally kicked the habit... I may have timed it end very coincidentally with the day WOW released. Which I then became addicted to. But after a while, and several different MMO's, Guild Wars, Star Wars Galaxies, City of Heroes/Villains, Warhammer Online, and maybe 1 or 2 more that just weren't memorable I have decided that I only really want to play Console Games that have a finite ending to them. I just don't have the free time to play an MMO and honestly I didn't really like how much time I had invested in them.

Anyways enough of that. Point is I've been buying games 1 at a time and playing them in my brief windows of free time each day. My current game of choice is Dragon Age II. I really love this series. And i'm hoping they keep going with the franchise, its a lot of fun to see how the entire world shapes up.

Once I finish it (Or maybe beat it 2-3 times) I will start looking for a new game. here are a few I have my eyes on.

Mass Effect 2. This isn't a new game, but its new to the PS3. Same developers as Dragon Age, and a similar style of game. Its set in the future and you control Colonel Shepard and kill aliens. Sounds fantastic

Homefront. This one is a first person shooter set in the year 2027. The U.S has been invaded by a joint evil Asian nation. And pretty much beaten. You take control of a band of rebels fighting guerilla style for their freedom. Very Red Dawn.

Infamous. Your a guy who was in a disaster and afterwards you get electrical powers. You have to say the world or city or what ever, and along they way you make decisions for good or evil. And your reputation and how people percieve you is all dependant on how you make those choices.

definitely look into Brink as well. It doesn't come out till May but it will be the first non-Halo game I get for my 360. It will also be out on PS3 and computer.
