    We've got the running What was the last videogame you beat? thread and plenty of What's Your Favorite types of threads...but what about those (i.e. me) who start games and take forever to eventually beat them? Or go back to sandbox games? Or who spend most of their time in multiplayer?

    I'm working on another Mass Effect playthrough, spending some time getting reacquainted with Halo 3 multiplayer before ODST comes out, and the new Professor Layton sequel.

    What about you?

    I'm currently playing Football Manager 2009 on the PC whilst waiting for the 2010 version to be released. I am intermittant on Guild Wars still whilst I look for a free day to concentrate on finishing Nightfall and GWEN.

    I'm playing X-Men Legends on the Wii/Gamecube

    I'm currently playing through Ultimate Spider-Man on the GameCube, while also sometimes playing a bit The Getaway: Black Monday on PS2.

    Ultimate Spider-Man I think ranks, together with Spider-Man 2, as the two best video game versions of Spider-Man thus far. However they each have something the other one lacks.

    As for The Getaway: Black Monday, I found that one in a store for under 10$ the other day, and I just bought it out of curiosity. At the time the first one came out I had heard that it was top notch in the story and presentation department, but pretty average and even frustrating when it came to gameplay. While in the store I figured: this is the sequel, surely they must have ironed out most of the kinks of the first one. As it turns out, I was wrong. Still, what it lacks in ease of play, it makes up for in personality. :)

    Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga mostly. Though intermittently I break out one of my many versions of Guitar Hero for a few songs. I've also got Dead Space on the go. And a Mass Effect playthough...

    I go back to Star Wars: Battlefront 2 frequently. Multiplayer if I have Internet, Instant Action battles or Galactic Conquest if not.

    Played Kamino yesterday. Can still knock AI's out of turrets halfway across the battlefield with a DC-15 blaster rifle. :)

    Rocking Arkham Asylum on the PS3, occasionally going back to Skate 2 when I need to just chill out, and on the PC I rotate between TF2, CoDWaW, and of course Stalker: Clear Sky.

    Which mods are you using? I've debating going back to it but I'm not sure which to go with at this point.

    Some texture packs, one for better water, Enhanced Weather (not Natural Environments), Illumination Within, DarNified UI, Atmospheric Loading Screens (no text!),

    I never went for the big gameplay changes, only smaller ones, like Better Mercantile Leveling, Quest Award Leveller and the ability to cast spells on self while on horseback (though that was only really useful on the one playthrough where I never fasttravelled).


    The single most important one, however, is this one :p

    Yeah, although the "Cliff Racer Extinction" patch for Morrowind was/is definitely my favorite of those types. [face_mischief] In that game, it seemed like the more you slaughtered, the more ultimately showed up in the end.

    (And yup -- quite like the "Better Mercantile Leveling" mod too, even for characters with reasonably high Merc-stats. Takes forever, otherwise. Lets me get into those store-investments much, much faster.)

    Unfortunately, I'm already rich and powerful again, which is kinda boring, no matter how pretty the damn thing is now. The most difficult part is trying not to run out of arrows [face_tired]

    Stupid late PC release date for Arkham Asylum [face_frustrated]

    Never got Entrenchment and I can never play this for very long because I end up doing the same thing. Turtling, researching, steamrolling.
