There is nothing wrong with just sticking to games you love.

Have you tried any moba's like league of legends or hon or dota?

What about trying starcraft 2 (you could probably get a copy off a friend)?

I personally think that you should stick to and play a lot of the games you love instead of switching every time something new is released (looking forward to bf3 though )

the witcher 2 will keep you coming back. so many story arcs and awesome voice overs. plot is a bit predictable, but since your choices do affect certain outcomes it will be almost a new game everytime u play.

rpg wise it is different from you "put stat here to level up" as there are plenty of ways to build your character.

also the boobs....

I agree completely, it was nice when i first started PC gaming, and every game was a new experience for me. But now i feel as though ive caught up, and played it all, now im just waiting for the next greatest game. But every game that comes out seems to dissapoint, i feel as though no matter how good the game is, that it could be better, and the fact that it could be better ruins the game for me. Im installing the witcher 2 right now, so hopefully that tickles my fancy. I got fable 3 as well but its not all that great. Yea, its fun, but nothing that grabs my attention like the first time i played halo, or the first time i played half life. It just seems like all games have lost their originality.

Bulletstorm was awesome, gears of war 3 looks promising, i had tons of fun with the beta. I have grown tired of bad company 2, although i do hop into a game every once and a while, but i just get bored with it. Brink was a huge letdown.

The best game in my opinion at the moment is Starcraft 2. Its perfect. But you all already know that

Hopefully BF3 lives up the hype ( which im sure it will ) And hopefully the witcher 2 is good, im also looking forward to dirt 3, but i think i want to upgrade before i get it.

As someone mentioned before, there's a little bit of a nostalgia factor in all of us that tends to overrate older games that we cherish. But another reason might be that recent games haven't really pushed any boundaries. For example, The Witcher 2 is a great, polished RPG, but it didn't really add anything radically new to the RPG genre.

Witcher 2 sucks, no SLI support, no eyefinity, no mouse control, dumbed down inventory, they released a beta.

Hmm... you must be mistaken. The Witcher 2 is an action rpg like Mass Effect 2. It's not a true rpg. It's not even polished. It's not a bad game if you like that genre. However it's not a full meal for true traditional rpg fans. It's not a full meal for true skill based action fans either.

Fun games. Fun times. Find a game that you enjoy for long periods of time, say CoD4/CSS.

GPU this
CPU that
fanboi trash talk blah blah blah.

There are good games out now last month and going to be next month.
Don't go searching for details on games, just watch the trailers. and pre order.
playing Halo reach beta ruined it for me. so i am going to not play betas as often.

I play games for fun, most games. I play so that the natural chemical gets released in me head, feel good, me play game.

nuff said.

Yeah, I kind of feel that way myself. However, there's rarely more than two or three worth-while releases per year in my experience. Battlefield Bad Company 2 was my last stunning release and keeps me 100% entertained to this date (despite having played it A LOT since the first day of release). I guess Battlefield 3 will be the next big thing for me. Other notable stuff in-between (for me) has been Supreme Commander 2, Section 8 Prejudice, Mass Effect 2 and Assassin's Creed 2 & Brotherhood. Notable but not major, of course.
