Hey everyone,

So I'm at a bit of an impasse gaming wise as most games I have been playing lately seem to be falling a bit flat in my opinion. I recently played Gears 2, and although the gameplay was intense amounts of fun, the story left me with a feeling of "A lot of that seemed kinda pointless."

I'm really looking forward to playing the new Silent Hill (as soon as gamefly gets its ass in gear and sends it to me,) as well as (although to a lesser extent) Resident Evil 5. I know, I'm a huge survival horror nerd as well as an even nerdier RPG nut, but I guess for me it all boils down to story.

My two standby's at the moment are Left 4 Dead and Rock Band 2 (drums). I enjoy these games a lot but for the most part they are time wasters to me. I log on to XBL (If anyone wants to play either by all means let me know) and spend an hour or two a week playing these, but they're not the kind of total immersion games I have grown to love.

So I guess in the end what I'm asking is "What are other people out there playing and enjoying?" Seriously, any suggestions? I have a 360, a Wii, and a PS2 (I will probably upgrade when a new Final Fantasy is released... I know... nerd)

Oh hey! Here's an old ass videogame drawing! Haha, I never do fan art so I totally forgot I had it, but hell, it matches the post so here it is.

WOw this sucks, I think I am officially the only person on earth with out a next gen system.

don't get me wrong I would love one but ...I don't gots no CASH son. lol.

But its ok old games can be really fun when your playing with other people. U no?

sirjeffofshort responds:

Old school games are always great. The one thing that pisses me off about gamefly is that the don't have PS1 games. In fact most of my time on Wii is spent playing snes or sega games and I spend more time on my PS2 than I do my 360, and that's kinda my point, modern gaming is a bit stale at the moment. Haha.

Final fantasy XIII is for the 360 too! I am also a big Fallout 3 fan... as well as Mass effect, I'd seriously check those out if I were ye!

sirjeffofshort responds:

Awesome! I had heard rumors of such a thing and I was like "Sony is effin' stupid if they let that franchise slip multi-console" but alas... Sony may be stupid. Haha. I did play Mass Effect and I enjoyed it very much (except for the fact that some cut-scenes seemed to still be rendering as they were playing). I will have to check out Fallout 3 and see if it is as appealing as it sounds. I just started playing Infinite Undiscovery, and although it looks beautiful I'm not so sure I care for the world it is set in, but I'll give it another few hours of play before I discard it.
