On a whim I decided to reinstall Morrowind. It's surprising how much more fun a game can become when a best friend isn't shouting in my ear telling me what he wants *our* character to do in-game. :P

Anyway, now that I know what I was missing I am waiting for Oblivion like a giddy school girl. ;)
I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather ... Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

KOTR 2 is excellent apart from the graphical bugs and the very poor endings, but it provides a solid 24 hours worth of gameplay - too little i think, but just enough perhaps.

I'm still trapped in the city of heroes, though I'm working on finishing Final Fantasy X, so I can get started again on Xenosaga.

Janos, I've got a 9600XT 256mb, 512mb RAM, and 2.8ghz and I can run Chaos Theory perfectly fine (or at least I could run the beta fine, but it looked the same as the screens from gold). and when I say fine, I mean perfectly...no slowdown no matter what was happening, with setttings at default.

You should be fine I'd say...it's a great game if you can get a partner and do co-op or online team game goodness.

Just look at my sig.  Legos Star Wars is really fun, but I turned my computer monitor on the other day and got a DISK ERROR!  Damnit, now I have to format the damn computer again.  This machine has been nothing but trouble for the last few months.

Right now I'm playing:

- KOTOR (I finished the dark side a year ago and I decide to start the light side.)
- Tropico (A nice strategy/political game.)
- Capitalism II (THE BEST business game out there, but freaking complicated.)
- SimCity 3000 (I got an old computer not able to run Simcity 4)

Freedom in capitalist society always remains about the same as it was in ancient Greek republics: Freedom for slave owners.-Lenin

I'm stuck with a few myself, and most are contrary to my usual playing style.
SWAT 4 and SWAT3 (since it's apparently better than SWAT4)
Just finished Jade Empire (short but EXCELLENT story, great for kung fu movie fans)
E.V.O. (old SNES ROM, just because I heard of it on the Spore forums)
Starting Area 51.... too early to tell whether it's gonna be good or not.

Waiting on: Spore, B&W2, X3:Reunion, TES4: Oblivion, Star Wars: Empire At War

Ahh Nethack. I've been playing that thing off and on for 8 years or so. It's the only game I always come crawling back to. Make sure you visit Nethack.org and get 3.4.3, it has GRAPHICS! (well, sorta). Quite a learning curve, I still don't know what some commands are for. I usually only play as wizard, Charm spells are the best. Nothing like having an army of pets to protect you.

I almost forgot about that game, I havn't played it in months. Classic.
