Ground Control II and UT2004 for the  PC are in there too.

Right now I'm focused pretty heavily on Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando which I picked up last week for about $20.  Prior to that, I finally finished Metroid Prime and I've been working my way through Halo on Heroic difficulty before starting in on Halo 2.

On the PC, I'm playing Half-Life 2 and Evil Genius.  I tend to be *really* slow with games since I rarely play for more than an hour or so at any given time, so I've actually been working on Evil Genius since the day it was released.

The games I am currently playing but will probably never finish.

Halo2 - Loving it.  Will probably finish
Men of Valor - Not to sure about this one
Tron 2.0 Killer App - I am actually liking this more on the Xbox than the PC (except for graphics)
NFSU2 - Having a good time with this one

Just recently finished Halo 2 and Jak 3 in the last couple of weeks. Now playing Prince of Persia: Warrior Within. I'l probably start Metroid Prime 2 or KOTOR 2 after that.

WoW has taken over almost all of my game time, but I did manage to finish Halo 2 last night.

The rest of my time has been split between Half Life 2 and Kingdom Hearts.

I'm currently splitting my time between The Bard's Tale on the Xbox and City of Heroes on my PC.

I'm loving The Bard's Tale so much I've had a friend come over and play it while I watch, just so I can laugh at things in it again.

I just finished Paper Mario last week. (A superb game that I hope sells 1 gagillion copies!)

Lots of World of Warcraft

This week I should start up Tales of Symphonia.

I also want to get back to Metroid Prime so I can pick up the sequel some time before 2007.

Mario & Luigi Superstar Sage in fits and spurts.

I asked for a bunch of stuff for X-mas, so the backlog isn't going to get any smaller....

I finally finished Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga a couple weeks ago -- the final battle was pretty tough, but that whole game was a blast.

As for Metroid Prime, I technically "finished" the game around the same time...but only got an 84% completion rating.  And I thought I was so careful about scanning everything from beginning to end.... :oops:

-Autistic Angel

P.S. I also played the game from beginning to end with the "Hint System" turned off, so that may have had something to do with it.

I'm currently jumping around between ESPN NFL 2k5, College Hoops 2k5, Halo 2, and Katamari Damacy.  Might do some more GTA at some point before the Christmas games arrive.

90% of my time has been with World of Warcraft.  Will probably be that way for a long long time.

I'm making my way through Pikmin 2.  Loving that game!!!  It is a sleeper hit.

I'm playing bits and pieces of Half-Life 2, but that damn stuttering problem got worse for me on the last patch so I'm thinking of holding off a bit until they figure out a decent fix for it. Or until I get around to actually applying that "front-load textures on" console command. smile

Also playing through KOTOR on my PC as a Dark Lord this time. I've known about what you can do, but actually doing it this time is so much fun. That should keep me occupied until Feb. when I get the PC version of KOTOR 2. smile

Beat Halo 2 the other day and the single-player was crap. For a great game, I fired up Prince of Persia: Sands of Time last night and instantly got back into it. I love how much like a movie the game is. It just sucks you right into it and I love it start to brilliant finish. biggrin

A few weeks ago the only thing I could play was Max Payne 2: Cinema Mod 1.6. Gorgeous gun battle after gorgeous gun battle, nothing touched it for sheer action greatness.

I've gone through a ton of stuff lately.  Seems to happen whenever Gamestop does a "Buy 2 Get 1" sale.  Most of it has been of the "play for a couple weeks, then return for credit towards something else" variety.  In the last month I've played:

-  Katamari Damacy (fun)
-  Shin Megami Tensai (meh)
-  Demon Stone (short, but fun)
-  Need for Speed Underground 2 (utter crap)
-  X-men Legends (probably great if you're really into X-Men.  I'm not, so it's just so-so)
-  Bard's Tale (fun until about 10 hours.  Then really boring)
-  Bloodrayne 2 (just awful)
-  .hack (meh)
-  Fallout:  Bos (crap)
-  Gladius (great)
-  Phantom Brave (undecided.  Still trying to figure out the combat and XP system)

Also got HL2 yesterday, and will be picking up Metal Gear Solid 3 this afternoon.  And hopefully getting Growlanswer and KotOR 2 for X-mas.  

One of these days I'll actually pick a game and stick with it.  Too much good stuff to play right now though.

Doopri1, just FYI, X-Men Legends wasn't done wtih the Snowblind engine. I think Raven developed their own engine for that title.

My recent games list is below. I purchased all of these games within the last month or so.

Dead or Alive: Ultimate
Halo 2
Burnout III
Otogi II
Fire Emblem

I'm having mixed feelings about DOAU. The graphics aren't as...I dunno, amazing as I thought they would be. I think, in some cases, DOA3 looks better. However, Team Ninja have taken interactive environments in a fighting game to a whole new level. The fighting locations are amazing, and seem be as alive and have as much detail as the fighters themselves. (If only Namco could take a hint. This is what a fighting title's environments should be like.) The online play hasn't impressed me too much, though. The majority of matches I played had a not inconsiderable degree of lag and, as I'm sure everyone knows, lag in an online fighting game=bad cookies.

Halo 2 hasn't disappointed, thankfully. While I think the first Halo had a better single player campaign, H2's multiplayer just can't be beat. Awesome. Amazing. Pure gaming bliss, I say. While I have a few gripes about certain things Bungie has changed in the series, overall I'm in love with the game.

I picked up Fire Emblem, Otogi II, and Burnout III yesterday. I'd already played and beaten FE, but the game was so impressive I had to own my own copy.

The Otogi series gets my award for most ignored and underrated franchise on the Xbox. I was hoping the sequel would get more attention but that doesn't look like it's happening. Poor From Software. Poor Sega. Imo, Otogi was an awesome action game and Otogi II is even better.

Burnout III is one of the best...no. No, it's THE best racing game I have ever played. In fact, it's so much of a blast to play I'm going to cut this entry short so I can get back to playing it.  Cool

It has basically been dominated by the first two.

Well with my broken hand from the car accident, I have not been able to play anything recently.

However, I just got my cast off so I am sort of able to play now.

Due to this, I have a backlog of games to play

Ones that I am currently in the process of playing

Madden 2005
Flatout
Second Sight
Need for Speed Underground 2
Halo 2
PoP:WW
KOTOR2

KOTOR2 I am sure will be the only thing in my system until I finish it on both light and the dark sides.

XBox:  Halo 2

PC: NWN:HOTU

Trying to stick with one game per platform. I find I'm more likely to finish them that way, although it doesn't always work.
