Well, after beating Halo 2 and Doom III, and being at the end of Half-Life 2 I must say that they are all amazingly good, and that I feel as if they have lived up to their expectations. Halo 2 is the best multiplayer game of the three hands down. Half-Life 2 tells a decent story, but the way it is told and presented is absolutely stunning. Not to mention the innovative use of the havok physics in the game. And Doom III, while completely lacking in multiplayer options, is a great action game. Fighting through hell and back again is a great thrill. And the graphics, don’t get me started on those.
If there is one thing negative to say about these three games, its that they are making me neglect the rest of my gaming collection. I am spending less and less time on Planetside, and even though I started playing freelancer again, it looks like I might not finish it.. again. Then of course there is the Gamecube games that I have barely touched (with the exception of the Metal Gear Solid remake). I have soo many games that I have completed 60% or more of that I want to finish, but I just never get around to it. Games like Tron 2.0, Mace Griffin, and Resident Evil just to name a few.
And now with the holidays coming up, I fear I will forget about these games. Most of the games I plan on getting this holiday season are for the Xbox, and most of them are live enabled. MechAssault 2 will be great, and KOTOR II will own my life until I complete it. Then there is Fable that I still have yet to pick up. I guess what I am trying to say is, “Stop making so many damn games”. I want to finish the ones I have before I get new ones, but we all know it just doesn’t work that way. I know you all can relate too.
