I would use a walkthrough two / three times while playing an adventure game. When the game's puzzles are too difficult for me, than I abandon the game.

Ive played it on release and was just bored to death. A grindfest and very uninspired, like 8 out of 10 MMOs out there. The only ones worth playing (IMHO) are WOW and GW2

Hey there. I have never played ANY of the other Anno games, even though I enjoyed the first one, will have to check them out. I think you would enjoy Banished, it is equal in its degree of tranquillity and yet still a fun game to play

I have just started playing it. Some of the puzzles are a tad moronic I found (use the mouse to retrieve the pantaloons for example) but I absolutely adore the art style, reminds me of The Curse of Monkey Island, my favourite adventure. I also was not keen on Sadwick's voice at first but it is starting to grow on me as well. I had not problems with bugs or glitches so far, then again, maybe the version that is available on Steam as of now is fixed.

I am currently playing through Alan Wake, ME3 and Divine Divinity

Well, you might want to go ahead and play Mass Effect 3, if you haven't already. Mabye keep an eye out for the new edition of Wasteland too ? And I think Fallout 3 catches some of the atmosphere

I would suggest Castle Crashers or Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

Big ambitious RPG from a mid-tier developer that has never worked with the genre before... I wouldn't get my hopes up too much.

Hmm... they have been around since 1997 and made games like F.E.A.R. I think this is their first major title for WB Games ever since making them their publisher, so the pressure is up. I have been disappointed by almost all LOTR games, such as War in the North which was just a generic Smash Em up with some LOTR pasted on it to sell it.

Interesting, you should make a proper GiantBomb List with your favourite games

So many games add more content and expansions quickly, that I usually wait for the whole shebang to be released and then buy it. For example, I have only just bought Borderlands 2 plus all the DLC, because I cant be bothered to go and get all the DLC as it comes out.
