I'm sure everybody is having fun (or at least I hope they are). 

I grabbed a game that was technically impressive a couple of months ago.  I won't name the game.  Anyway, after playing it for about three hours, I realized that even though it looked good and was a key weapon in internet arguments, the game sucked hard.  It just wasn't fun at all.  I traded it in.

It's easy to get caught up in "Console Wars", bragging rights, graphics comparisons, etc.  If the game isn't fun, none of that stuff matters.  Wii gamers, Kinect gamers, PSN gamers, XBL gamers, etc. have all figured this out.  "Technically impressive" does not equal "Good".  Keep having your brand fun, people.  It's the only thing that matters.

Not gonna say but I think I have a decent guess as to what game you're talking about. I was pretty excited for it but passed after playing the beta and demo extensively. These days if I feel that the game may be a chore in any way, especially if it's in gameplay, I don't take the risk. I can do a lot with 64$.

Well done, that was subtle xD.

Around the Network

I'm completing 4 games per month right now. I have still around 20 games to finish before Dark Souls and Skyrim.

And I'm enjoying most of these games very very much. Completing Dead Space right now. I didn't give it proper time the first time I tried it. But wow it's just so good. Same with Bioshock last week, I finally actually completed it, and now I have to play Bioshock 2. And Assassin's Creed 2 I completed around two weeks ago, so amazing. Can't wait to put my hands on Brotherhood and Revelations.

I love gaming (almost) more than ever did in my life.
