I'm currently on my second playthrough of Mass Effect 1 on the PC and casually making my way through Assassin's Creed II which I have to say is really overrated.

How the hell can you manage to play that game once, let alone twice? The sheer mass of content it has is just silly in my opinion. I got halfway through ME2 and then quit because I'm a completionist and it would kill me.

I couldn't play even half of the original dragon age. I tried it twice, but after several hours it just gets too dull. The story telling is good, the graphics are good, so why can't this game captivate me? I am not sure exactly why, but I suspect it has something to do with the oversimplified character skill trees that do their best to insult my intelligence.
Lol, didn't really find it that interested either though I know the cause of it: The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. I might be able to get into it when I am over the Q4 games.

Tried out Assassins Creed Brotherhood.
How is it compared to Assassins Creed II? That game got boring quick due to redundancy.

I've personally invested 25 hours in the first game and 42 in the second. How is that compared to you? I don't think I've done everything. I definitely didn't do everything in the first game due to the fact that you can't traverse around doing stuff once you've beaten the game.

I got bored of the first one when it first came out, then made up my mind to try and truck through the second one a while ago.

I spent like...probably 50 hours maxing out people,fully mining every planet, doing all the side quests etc.

I didn't finish it.

Mass Effect 2? Yeah, I really try hard to get into Mass Effect... The second one was comparable to the first, but I didn't like the streamlined leveling system.

I've played through it thrice, I did (almost) everything twice.  ::)

I would call it "Monopoly: Rome"
God damn the game is all about buying shops and get profit from them, open up guild houses, setting up assassins guild and recruit own assassin apprentices that you can call in for help. If anything, Ezio is taking the lifestyle of his merchant family, rather than assassin order.

Of course there is stabbing and and jumping the rooftops, but mostly it feels like I am buying expencive painting because I don't know where to throw away my money.

Dead Space.

Reminds me alot of Resident Evil 4, Mass Effect and something else.
Still a good game. (ah yes Alien!)
I love the set up, but the designs of the aliens are kinda shitty.
Can't wait to play more

Wait, doesn't the game deal with what was revealing at the end of the second game?

Batman: Arkham City, though I've pretty much beaten the game. Story is beaten, two side missions remains out of ten. Trophies aren't that fun to collect, but I seem to need to do it in order to get interaction from the Riddler again, either that or his riddles that appears on screen.

Playing this game was literally one of the best experiences I've had this year.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six:Vegas 2

It's aged pretty well in this time of a flurry of run and gun shooters where you can just tank through like 40 guys.

Sequence. Even though I suck at rythm games, I like playing this one.
