    Yeah, I bought it. It's okay... I got bored of it quicker than I thought I might... probably because the core shooting mechanic just really isn't all that strong when you get right down to it.

    But if you want to play a REALLY good game:

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=AJFLX0DF

    That's a download link for X-Com: UFO Defense. It's a really old PC game, and also saw release on the PS1 (launch title, I think). Anyway, the whole download is only 8.5 megs, and 20 megs when you install it. But old as it is, it's one of the best games I've ever played, period.

    But don't take my word for it. IGN ranked it as the #1 PC game of all time:

    I beat Red Dead in six days. I was expecting it to be much longer, but it's still fun.

    I didn't play that one, but I did basically quit a decent job when I was 19 to play X-Com Apocalypse. Top 3 game for me, along with Romance of the Three Kingdoms III and Civilization II.

    I got Red Dead the day it came out and I still haven't beaten it. Too easy to get sidetracked playing the game with all of the side missions (although they can get a bit repetitive after a while). It's a great game, but I think I'm a bit fatigued with it at this point because it's so damn long.

    I'm playing through it now. I, being a fan of the setting, have to say that is game is much more enjoyable than GTA4. Every aspect of it has me enthralled. 10/10

    Isn't it a little early to be padding your post stats beantown?

    RTS games for the win. Use your brain more you first-person-shooter-idiots. Gamer chicks aren't THAT hot.

    I beat Red Dead Redemption and Alan Wake in the past week, both are excellent games although I foresee I'll go back to Red Dead Redemption more frequently for achievements and multiplayer.

    Also Split/Second is probably Michael Bay's wet dream. Nothing but explosions and fast cars. So you know... ****ing awesome.

    My brother and I played through a couple of games this summer. Mass Effect 2 and Final Fantasy 13... Mass Effect 2 was an AMAZING game, and one of the best games that I have ever played.

    Final Fantasy 13 on the other hand was a joke.

    Also Fifa 10 is an outstanding game!
