Have to mention three, and w/reference to my most influential gaming experiences.

1. Halo CE started this whole video game thing for me.

2. The ME series is easily my favorite series, w/ME3 my fav of the trilogy.

3. I've played more hours of Diablo 3 than any other game far and away. There's a reason. The progression is so addictive and the game just keeps improving w/every update.

Awesome tc. I can't wait to get a dog again when I retire(early).

Make sure to give the doggie lots of hugs.

This and tell her you'll always be there for her...forever. :-)

Also Sergio's post above is super practical and right on point for the specifics.

Does look cool, and even at 2 years old. Can't wait to revisit the ME universe; my most anticipated game I think.

I enjoyed Metro 2033 quite a bit when I played it. I remember a tough part toward the end in a sewer or something...been a while. I also found the endings pretty damn interesting. Bought Last Light recently and I'm having a hard time sticking with it. Not sure why other than it looks and feels a little dated.

Good read tc. D3 has improved significantly w/every update since its release. The game is in a great place right now especially. I find the endgame(adventure mode and GR grinding)fun because of all the build possibilities and new gear that keep the game fresh and interesting while providing plenty of depth and complexity if you care to go there or get competitive.

I've played a ton on both pc and console, but lately I'm loving playing on my xbox one. So easy and simple to grind and look for loot and resources all while listening to podcasts, watching a ballgame or race, or having a good streamer on while playing. The hunt for loot and especially the progression process, however slow, is super addictive. That and reading and learning about the evolving and/or new builds and their variants via new gear, present in the past and especially the latest update(2.4), keeps me playing. It is a great game, and it's constant evolution over the past 3+ years has been fascinating and super engaging for me. I actually don't play very much multiplayer on console lately because of issues w/modding and the old para glitch(which is supposedly fixed), but the synergy between the classes can make for a ton of fun, and xp and loot are better too. Worth trying, especially on pc.

Can't...stop...playing. :-)

I really loved Renegade Ops, and I don't remember playing the dlc....hmmm. Good news for sure.

I bought this game a long time ago, and liked it, even though I didn't put a ton of time into it. Sad news when this stuff happens nonetheless.

I really liked the Gears of War series for a tps. RDR was really good as well. ME3's co-op mp was fantastic. Vanquish was excellent and super fluid; maybe better mechanically than The Division based on my brief beta experience w/it.

The forerunner I wanna say was kill.switch, and it was damn good back in it's day(2003).

Great game and the second I liked even more. Why Bioware hasn't revisited this series for more current gen is beyond me. Especially now, w/Star Wars fever everywhere you look. And btw tc, the Mass Effect series is in my all-time top three. Absolutely loved those games and I'm really looking forward to the next ME game coming this year(I hope).

If you want to get really technical, the Jedi Knight story in The Old Republic is as close a template for KOTOR 3 as you're likely to get. Also the new expansion, Knights of the Fallen Empire, is quite KOTOR in its execution, down to having the same style of dialog interface in certain segments as KOTOR does.

Yeah, you're right. Wasn't thinking, or remembering tbh, about the MMO, but more of a AAA sp release on all platforms.
