I was thinking about doing this once(except I wanted a NES), but ended up getting a Wii and a classic controller instead. Many NES and SNES games can be pretty expensive, and most of what you want is on virtual console anyway...

Anything but an Imperial. They are way too bland and their racial powers suck.
 
I've always had an affinity for the High Elves, with their enormous magicka pool, or Bretons for their easily achievable magic immunity. That said, the story and the world is kinda swaying me towards Nord.

I bought Torchlight during the Steam Holiday sales, and quite enjoy it. I'm not really sure how it'll translate to a controller, since it's very much a mouse and keyboard(actually, not that much keyboard) game.

I just bought a few games off steam, but I've also preordered Dragon Age 2 and spending the rest of my Q1 mula on a new 360.

Indie 2D pack 4,49
Oddworld Pack 5,24
Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom 0,39

I played 6 or more regularly when I was younger, often 10 hours or more. In fact, I played Vice City for 23 hours with only short breaks and I'm okay today.
 
We were bragging about how much we play games, right?
 
Oh, condolences to the deceased's family and friends.

@Deathshroud:  I got Darksiders in April for 20 quid (I was just in London for the week, I'm not from England), so you should be able to get that pretty cheap. I haven't played much of it, but I like what I played.

I went and checked with Volkswagen for prices here in Norway and the cheapest I saw was 227 000 NOK. Normally, if a thing costs 100 NOK over here, it'll cost $ 10 in the states. However, with the difference in currency, this car would cost around $ 37 000, and then the government has a few extra costs on top of that.
 
But it's all relative...

If by last year, you mean this year...
 
Anyway, I think this year had good games, but they were more spread out. All three platforms have had good games. Sony had Heavy Rain and GT5,  Microsoft had Mass Effect and Halo, while Nintendo had new Mario, Kirby, GoldenEye and Metroid.
 
I think I'm actually looking forward to Mortal Kombat the most. I also really want to see how DNF will finally turn out. It seems like we've been subject of the greatest practical joke ever for a decade and a half now.
