Hell, why not?

Currently plodding along in Half Life 2 Episode Two.

Hate these mines. Hate these caves. Hate these squishy, angry giant bugs. Hate sneaking through tunnels full of human remains and icky grubs to survive. Hate negotiating roaming packs of headcrab zombies. Hate headcrabs hiding in nooks and crannies. Hate darkness. Hate barnacles lurking overhead. Hate entire beginning section of this game

Hate Valve. Hate.

It is my favorite Halo besides the first one.

I never liked the dual-wielding mechanic. Clunky, awkward and interferes with me using grenades.

I need to start my Deus Ex game back up. This one will be considerably...'Less selective in terms of who I give the mercy of a tranq dart.

KQ huh?

^Meh. I consider Halo one of the few franchises that never really had a downpoint. Sans the ending of Game 2, but even that wasn't as terrible as everyone says.

-wasn't that impressed by ODST-

And yeah, King's Quest, I've beaten the first three (and VI, because I played it a long time ago), and need to get IV done.

Team Fortress 2 is still good despite the Hats n' Stuff.

@Rocket: I'm not as concerned about hats or item percentage completion as I am about having as many tactical possibilities as possible for my favorite classes. On that note, I play a very crafty Engie.

So.

I stopped playing them once I beat Embodiment Of Scarlet Devil after much blood and tears, and was told that I needed to 1cc it in order to see the ending.

Um where do I begin?

I like RTS games and Tactical turn based. Games with entertaining levels of realism are great especially when they are balanced for gameplay.

Dwarf fortress and minecraft are disturbingly addictive.

Ninja Gaiden is a horribly designed game. Nothing about it is above okay. I do not get why it is so popular, and I love Devil May Crys-style games.

@Ivy: Okay, yeah, that's just crap.

I've heard Imperishable Night's a lot easier but still.

Currently juggling between Tactics Ogre, Minecraft, and Final Fantasy XIV. It's surprising how much of change the latter has gone through.

So hey.

Free Civ.

It's pretty cool.

I'm waiting for Free Col to hit version 1.0, myself.

Also, UFO Alien Invasion is awesome but they keep on adding/removing stuff in-between versions because it's a WIP. Where's my flashbangs? >:(

Currently enjoying Prince Of Persia: The Sands of Time, Jak And Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Sly Cooper and the Thevius Racoonus, and especially Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil, a delightfully atmospheric puzzle platformer which I greatly enjoyed in my youth.

Didn't like MGS 3, Zudak?

It's not exactly naive. And it can happen. But it's tough. And definetly worthwhile.
