Yes, we have a thousand threads for specific games, but I want to know what you're playing right now. Feel free to post again when you've switched to a new game. Tell us something about it: something you like or something you don't like, who you would recommend it to, other similar games... anything!

I'm playing:

1. Mass Effect. SO good. I feel guilty for saying this, but I might like it more than KoToR. I never thought I'd say that about any game. Love the story and the gameplay. It's beautiful, the voice acting is awesome... it's perfect.

2. Forza 3. I wouldn't have bought this for myself, but I'm actually enjoying it. I have it set on the easiest level so it's almost too easy... I end up in first place every time. Oh, and you can rewind it a little if you crash into a wall or something. It's a fun game.

4. Peggle and Plants vs. Zombies. (Two games but they came on one disc -- therefore, one number. Zuma was also included but I hate it.) I've heard so many people rave about PvZ and I can see why! I've played Peggle on my phone before, and it's obviously better for xbox -- harder, too, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

3. A Kingdom for Keflings. Kind of embarrassed for liking it as much as I do, but it's kind of relaxing to build the kingdom. And I get to kick tiny people which amuses me a little more than it should.

I'm playing:

1. Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. I love the style present in this series. The art and music are top notch, and the puzzles are fantastically fun, though occasionally I'll come across one where I feel somewhat cheated by the directions presented. The story is interesting enough, but the puzzles are the real draw. Gotta finish this up so I can move on to The Unwound Future.

2. Super Mario Galaxy 2. Picked this up back in May, but I'm just now getting around to really diving into it. I loved the first one, and this one is better due to superior level design and creativity.

3. Fable III. Slowly working my way through this one. Building up my real estate empire so that I've got plenty of cash for the end game.

4. Mass Effect 2. Got this back in January, played for about 15 hours, then kinda fell out of it. I'm just starting to get back into it now. I have no good excuse for falling out of it. It's absolutely gripping, polished as can be, and I loved the first one. Super fun stuff. I'd say about on par with KotOR (tough to really beat that, isn't it? That game and (to a lesser extent) its sequel were some of the best times I've had on the original Xbox).

5. Super Mario World. I go back to this game quite often. It's one of my all-time favorites. I started a new file about a week a go, and I'm currently a little less than half way through. Forest of Illusion.

I'm playing...

  • Mass Effect 2: Again, because I finished the game in 'normal' and now I'm in 'madness'.
  • Forza Motorsport 3: I love it and I can spend several hours playing.
  • FIFA 11: What else I can say? I'm a soccer fan!
  • Mafia 2: I only have 2 achievements left to finish the game at 100%.

I'm playing (PC only, so many unknown titles):

1. Mount & Blade: Warband. A fairly unknown RPG title. Fun and addictive, big army battles between 200-500 soldiers =)

2. The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion. Completed this game like 6 times, can't get enough of it =) The worlds best RPG.

3. Metro 2033. A Single-player FPS title, also kinda unknown. The best FPS single-player I've played since Half-Life 2

4. Tropico 3. A Simulation game like SimCity but in the tropics and you are playing a communism leader.

5. Grand Theft Auto 3. playing through it again.

I could continue to 20 because I own so many games that I play often, I rarely play only one game.

Well, I'm not playin' 'em at the moment, but these are fun, and I do like sharin' 'em if it fits the topic :D:

Two that I think are fun: Battle of Serenity (some creative Browncoat did that for fun!) and Rasterwerks' Phosphor beta 2 (it's a pretty cool tech demo of what's possible, imo)

They're fun diversions when ya just wanna play something simple for a spell.

1. Skate 3 - I've loved the skate series ever since the first game. I've been playing Skate 3 since it came out in May, there's just so much to skate and so many different places to film your lines then upload it to the Skate.Reel. Also the new team aspect of it all is really awesome! My fave game of 2010 :)

2. Assassins Creed Brotherhood - This is quite a new game so I'm not gonna spoil anything, but I gotta say I really liked the story in this one and the end of it - all I will say is wow I was actually not expecting that. All I'm doing now is finding the rest of the flags. I've not played much of the multiplayer yet but from what I have played it's really awesome.

3. Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock - It's got really awesome songs on it. I always feel like I should be preforming in the Buy More with Jeffster when I play Fortunate Son by Creedence Clearwater Revival on it LOL.

I also play the COD games.
