Bummer, looking forward to it. They have time to add more awesomeness.

Foot in mouth. Repeat.

I would play this. A lot.

More Crysis is a win. Hopefully in 3 you don't serve six masters by the end of it like in 2. But still...cloak engaged.

Yup, SR, Driver, and Shadows.

I played Vanguard in ME2, but really didn't like it since I'd just charge/hit, and get myself in trouble. Trying Adept w/my first run through ME3. Looks like Sentinel might've been a better choice.

Almost 50,000 page views--glad I'm not the only one. But man, a little tough this one. Maybe it's not a man...

Thanks Alex. As usual, a good read and informative.

Why do we play? For me, it was born out of competition. There were the early days of head to head competition with Pong, seeing who could set the best time in Pole Position. Challenging a 'computer' began with Electronic Football on the handheld, and it grew from there.

What interests me now is the story, which is why I'm always looking for the next great campaign. The sense of adventure, immersion in a world that is well developed, and character arcs that are meaningful. Absurdity can be meaningful if done well (see Saints Row), and it has to be fun. That's where LA Noire broke for me--I intend to get back to it to finish, but it was interesting, not fun. The story must be engaging, and it must be mine to some extent. Why I play games parallels why I read (for entertainment)--what is the story, and what is it to me?
