The lack of anything good to play has been a pain lately. On the other hand, I’ve been disappointed with some of the new releases. Played anything worth recommending out of the relatively new releases (2007 onward unless it’s really good)?
I’m thinking about Europa Universalis III but I’m not sure I still enjoy enlarging my part of the map. Games like the Total War series don’t give me the same kind of joy (and I’m pretty dis-joyed by a brothel apparently being a constitutive part of a mediaeval city :rolleyes:)… some modules for Neverwinter Nights 1-2 are rather good, but they’re gapfill. I enjoyed Colin McRae 2005, but it was rather bland. And I don’t have the attention span for Civilization IV.
I enjoyed Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 1-2 (shame there’s no 3) and Mass Effect. I just love a good science-fiction, especially a space opera kind of storyline. Fallout 3 wasn’t bad, but I lost interest before finishing. And I don’t feel like replaying old games or playing abandonware right now.
Ermm… Maybe Age of Empires 3 then (I loved 1-2)? Mount & Blade seems to be interesting but there’s something wrong about it… don’t know… Turkish origin, as in whether they’d be able to understand Western chivalry?
Or maybe the Lords of the Rings games? Never played any of those, as much as I loved the books and films. Though I don’t feel like playing an MMO, got to be something singleplayer.
So, what’ve you played? And liked?
