How about Elder Scrolls Skyrim? Ships 11/11/11. You can expect me to be MIA for several days on the forum...

Yeah.. Those BF2 battles where sometimes EPIC! I was totally immersed in that game. Me and some guys rented servers that where costing quite a bit monthly, I was gaming with a clan on TWL for fun, website, whole community.

My grades suffered tremendously due to that game.

I know what your talking about. My game of choice is a mod for BF2 called Project Reality. I used to spend so much time playing it, up until a couple of months ago when I got a job .

Skyrim looks awesome! I will be taking a few days off myself. Something about dragons and swords and magic that gets my blood flowing .

Looking forward to MW3 as well.

Are you on a console or PC? I have both. I will put Skyrim on the PC to take advantage of my graphic cards. MW3 will be on the XBox.

Have any of you guys ever gotten into StarCraft?

I have NEVER played it, but some of the guys I know are big fans. They've been telling me to get StarCraft2 for months. I just don't think I'll be into it.

For the last 5 years or so, console only. I have PS3 and Xbox 360. This is mainly because I prefer to play in my living room instead of my office, taking advantage of my 65" screen and sound system

Other than that, not much other than the occasional Tiger Woods on my PS3.

I bought last year's game; Haven't opened it yet. I bought a PS3 just for that game, but I haven't even opened that box. Thanks for reminding me, I find TW quite soothing.

I haven't really played computer games in years. Although I was pretty excited about the updated versions of Monkey Island 1 & 2. Those are by far the best games ever made! How I miss the glory days of LucasArts...

I've also spent a few hours with Championship/Football Manager over the years. I think it built a good foundation for my trading...

hmm, I hope I wake up as myself 15 years ago tomorrow...

I have it. That's one tough game. I like to think of myself as a person that thrives in competition. But SC2 is on a totally different level. I guess I'm just kicking myself in the shin. I want to move up the leader board, but I don't want to put in the time to get that good.

I didn't play the original of this game, never heard of it before a few months ago. And the gameplay footage I've seen of it I'm not all that impressed. The gameplay footage I've seen, visually wasn't that stunning either. But this game seems to have one of those amazing plots and concepts that come along every once and a while. Also the trailers for the game are some of the most interesting I've ever seen. So much so that I will probably be getting this game despite my lack of enthusiasm for the footage I've seen. I'm a sucker for a good plot I guess.
