My wife got me Dragon Age Origins, which was on the top of my Xmas list. I've only played for 30 minutes or so, but I can tell right away that I'm going to be loving this game. The ability to zoom in and play "modern style" or zoom out and play "Baldur's Gate style" is absolutely perfect. This will be my top game for the next few months, I can see that right now.
I also got the GTA4:Episodes from Liberty City disc for X360, and New Super Mario Bros Wii (finally, a Wii game I want to play...been a while). I'll be starting the first GTA4 add-on (Lost and the Damned) after I finish Dead Rising (I'm halfway through day 4 now), and Mario will probably get broken in later today or tomorrow.
Coming off the list is CoD4 and Galactic Civilizations 2. CoD4 multiplayer is all right, but it's not my cup of tea; and I just bought Stalker off Steam for $2, so if I want a shooter I'll probably load that up. And GalCiv2 is good, but it's not as good as Civ4, and having to design new ships all the time seems more tedious to me than liberating. So I don't see me coming back to either of these any time soon, if ever. I'm also taking Halo 3:ODST off; even though I intend to come back and play through at the hardest difficult level, I have no immediate plans to do that.
I'm leaving Guitar Hero: Metallica on there for now, only because I am only three songs away from beating the Bass career on Expert. I haven't booted it up in a couple of weeks, but I do intend to finish that out before I set it aside. (I also just noticed that I listed this is Rock Band:Metallica last time, and in my signature for the last month! I'm a tool.)
