Since we're discussing electronic stuff
... I figure I'll mention my recent purchases for the XBox.
BioShock -- Solid. Decent story, hella atmosphere. Good sneak and smash shooter. More importantly, a nice duration. Four or five sessions (~3 hours each) and I'm done. I could go and redo it at a higher difficulty, but that's fine.
Oblivion something (IV?) Elder Scrolls -- Came with BioShock. I'm not into RPG games, and despite SIR Patrick Stewarts voice acting, nothing has changed. I was bored inside of an hour.
Left 4 Dead -- Nice shooter. My "I have 20 minutes" game of choice (apart from Rock Band). I like the team work aspect, and I think this would be a good game for a Saturday get-together. No complicated back story, and teamwork is mandatory. Not bad as a single player (computer controlled team-mates). I'm sure that the harder difficulties are beyond me.
Fallout 3 -- Uh, I thought this was more shooter than RPG, I was apparently wrong. Still, it's a post-apocalpytic setting. I almost turned it off after 30 minutes, but lasted another 30 (past the introduction). I'll probably give it another few hours.
So overall my purchases have been hit and miss, but seeing as how I got all 4 games for ~$60, I'm pretty happy. And with no Bloodbowl on the horizon, they'll do.
