I'm at least 1/4 of the way through Mass Effect 2 right now, I'm guessing. (7 hours in.) I just got the first wave of squad members, and the Illusive Man is sending me to a colony where Ashley is. (I killed Kaiden in ME1 with this character.) Already, I'm spending way more time playing ME2 than before, but I didn't spend much more time in Mass Effect 1. My initial playthrough of Mass Effect was about 8 hours, and this one was 10, mostly because I did that stupid moon mission and I saved Wrex. ME1 played a little better than I remember, but it's still clunky compared to the other games in the series. Mass Effect 2 is a massive step forward in terms of gameplay, though I wish they would've kept more of the RPG elements, but perhaps that's for the best. I don't need to tell you about how awesome Mass Effect 2 is. I'm addicted to it. Which, I guess, is a good thing, since most of what I've been playing this year has been Persona. (Side note: I'm 35 hours into Persona 4, just beat the void quest. Haven't really touched it much since I got ME.)
I also bought Super Meat Boy not too long ago, which is awesome and frustrating. I cannot get past Rapture. I don't know how you people do it. That game is insane and I love it for that. I just wish I had the skill to beat it! I also played Costume Quest in October, to hype myself up for Halloween. It's a nice little game and I recommend it if you ever find yourself longing for a Halloween game. And I've been playing Persona 4 Arena here and there, and by playing I mean reading, because that game is still barely a game, but I'm enjoying it for the most part. I just wish the game didn't force you to view everyone's stories before continuing. I wish it was animated, too, because clicking through all of that stuff gets super boring after a while, but obviously that is not a realistic request.
That's pretty much all I've been playing. I saw Wreck-It Ralph yesterday with my girlfriend, which was decent and enjoyable, though it has a plot hole that I cannot get over:
