    Alpha Protocol. It's been lurking in my Steam library for about 2 years, and I've finally had a proper sit down with it. It's really rather good. The much-criticised combat and stealth elements seem...

    I know the game isn't especially realistic. For a start that First Great Western train is moving rather than stopped dead half...

    I haven't played WoW since shortly after Cataclysm came out. I stopped when my first kid was born, and the second followed not very long after. I have a lot of fond memories going back to vanilla...

    I hear you. I turned 40 this year, and what with the random aches and pains, new-found refusal of my spine to bend and suddenly noticing how expensive everything is, coupled with the psychological...

    I picked up Outlast from GOG. I'm a pretty avid reader of horror stories, love a good, scary film and found Amnesia creepy and very atmospheric but not actually terrifying, so I didn't think it would...

    Metro 2033 might scratch this itch - there's a definite sense of being on a journey through the Metro with some of how it all plays out influenced by what you do in certain parts of the game. It's...

    Quinns' "Captain Smith" Mount and Blade diary (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/tag/captain-smith/) is hysterically funny and quite possibly my favourite gaming article ever.

    True on both counts and I'll throw in another vote for an RPG set in the Firefly universe. I found Mass Effect, especially the first game, did a good job of scratching the B5 itch. The way ME1...

    I'd love to make an RPG based on Luther, with LA Noire-style investigations and Mass Effectish dialogue. And Idris Elba.

    My wife is, to be honest, contemptuous and thinks I'm childish, and that I should be doing something "worthwhile" instead. Only a couple of my real world friends play to any great extent, and...

    @Gink they might enjoy Euro Truck Sim 2. It's often on sale and as well as the actual driving, which is very laid-back and enjoyable, you can build a trucking empire by buying and upgrading depots...
