Metro 2033 was an excellent game.... right up until those green blobs, then it falls apart. Other than that tho, it was great.

Borderlands
GTA SA
Assassin's Creed

Might think about going back to them, later on!

The new Bioshock...repeating tactics to deal with wave after wave didn't appeal. I may go back at some point to see how the story unfolds.

And The Witcher 2... for no particular reason, it's a great game.

I have a feeling you like Call of Duty

It looks like that yeah, but I can see myself not finishing Bioshock 1. I just started it a few days ago, and I'm almost done now but it's very boring to play. The writing/story and style are the driving forces behind it, but for a corridor shooter it sure drags on. And the fact that it's a corridor shooter limits the effectiveness of its style and unique world. I like Cryostasis more at this point.

I would have enjoyed Bioshock more years ago, but since then I got into bigger games and this just feels too simple, combined with the fact that it's ridiculously overrated. I'm forcing myself to finish it at this point, clinging onto the story and snoring through the gameplay. Strange how it's said to be revolutionary and GOTY material, it doesn't come close on either account.

You are right about Bioshock being simple, what with the negligible penalty of dying, but I found the story to be quite decent, and the water effects for the time were amazing. I found Bioshock to be all about atmosphere and I thought it did it well. The gameplay was also quite good for its time, the ability to trick enemies into fighting each other and such, I may be wrong but I had not played many games like that at the time, mind you I also did not have a quality pc at that time either.

The Witcher - I played (and love) the witcher 2 first and despite the great story the 1st game felt so clunky and awkward I just stopped playing it about 2/3rds the way through. If I had played them the other way around I suspect it would have been better.

BF3 (single player) - It's just crap

GTA IV - Gave up at about 80%. Clunky, poorly ported and the phone in it just annoyed the hell out of me.

The first Witcher had a much more in depth story line and felt more rpg, the second felt more actiony, still a fantastic game though, waiting for #3
