What should I play?
I'm feeling indecisive, so thought I would leave it to the wisdom of the cloud to decide on my behalf.
I've a few games I've barely touched but think I'm ready to invest some time in:
- Temple of Elemental Evil with Co8 modpack
- Starcraft 2 (SP)
- King Arthur 1
- Sins of a solar empire
- Sword of the stars 1
- Stalker with complete 2009 mod
- King's bounty: the legend

Well it depends what you want from it but I would go for Arcanum if you are happy going in for the long haul or StarCraft if you would like to play something a bit more casual or less time consuming. (I presume you meant the SP campaign)

Would've voted for SC2 if it meant the multiplayer. The matchmaking is excellent, so you'll be facing off against equally skilled opponents. Not that your proficiency at the SP campaign translates into MP all that much (that's what challenge missions are for). You could also try 2v2 for some extra craziness! As a second option, King's Bounty's pretty cool. Zombie wives and all that.

Arcanum is fantastic, but it takes quite a while to get through and the combat is more annoying than anything. The same goes for Stalker. ToEE meanwhile has great combat, but not much in the way of story/exploration (though the Co8 mod rectifies this somewhat). I haven't really played any of the others, so I can't help you there.

Arcanum and King's Bounty: The Legend are two games I feel the need to play again just by hearing their names. Or reading their names. You get the point.

I voted sword of the stars, but you really do need to invest time into it to get the most fun out it.I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way

Nothing beat good old stalker ^^... I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace. I take no joy in killing, but make no mistake; I'll do what needs to be done. Because it's my job. It's my duty. My name is Sam Fisher, and I am a Splinter Cell.

I voted for Arcanum, but it was a 50/50 split between that and King's Bounty. Arcanum has lots of great stuff to read and see, and KB has very fine battles.
(I haven't played any of the other games on the list though, hah, except for Stalker 2009 Complete ... I like Stalker, until it starts to get creepy, which is very soon. I would like it better with only human enemies and anomalies...not so much a fan of mutants and "ooooooooo zoom in on a creepy face" style monsters =P)Support for my all-pepperjack-cheese food bank charity drive has been lukewarm at best.

I'd vote for STALKER, but would it be better to play it with the AMK Complete mod, instead?

Well looks like Arcanum has it. Thanks people! (Though I will definitely be sure to invest some more time in SoaSE at some point soon).

Look again. It seems like Sins has it by a whisker.
edit: You had better be installing Sins. You can't ignore the poll now!

I'm about to be late for work so I can't look now (might have something bookmarked) But have a look at the sins forum, you may find something useful there http://forums.sinsofasolarempire.com/ If not you can always watch a 'let's Play' on youtube to give you an idea. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uz5Uo8ck2m8

No problem. Did you see the in-game tutorial btw? I totally forgot to mention it. It's probably a lot more useful than that let's play vid.
Not that it really matters now anyway, because it appears there are fresh votes on the poll and Stalker, sorry. S.T.A.L.K.E.R is now in the lead. Which means you have to stop playing Sins and start on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. That is how this is working right? The poll dictates everything?
