    What games are you currently playing and what games are you looking forward to play in the nearest/far future? I'm not limiting you to CRPGs, you can post any genre you want.
    Also, what games did you beat recently?

    The games that I beat recently (earlier this year):
    System Shock 2 - a first person RPG/action.
    Thief: Deadly Shadows - a first person stealthy action, I beat it for the 5th time.
    Ultima 7 and Ultima 7 Part 2 - real classics that I replayed using the Exult engine.

    The games I currently play (mostly real oldies):
    Temple of Elemental Evil (obviously) - RPG
    Sonic Mega Collection Plus - old 2D arcade collection (games from early 90s)
    Sonic Adventure DX - a 3d version of Sonic released in 2003
    Golden Axe 1-3 - old Sega Genesis 16-bit arcades
    Heroes of Might & Magic 3 (with Wake of Gods mod) - old strategy with a great fan mod
    FIFA 07 - a modern soccer game that just got released

    Also, from time to time I download new pinball tables for Visual and Future Pinball engines and play them with my friends.

    Games I'm looking forward to play or at least will check out:

    1) Temple of Elemental Evil: Keep on the Borderlands - any alpha, beta, private edition, demo, or final release when it's available.

    2) Neverwinter Nights 2, but only in case it's going to be at least as fun as KoTOR2 was and Obsidian lives up to its name again. If it's going to be another cheap Atari release I'm not going to play, let alone buy it.

    3) Half-Life 2: Episode Two and Episode Three when they get released.

    4) Unreal Tournament 2007 if it has at least as many and as great options as ut2004 had.

    I think that's about it.

    Recently beat:

    Civ4 (well, I beat it the only way you can, by uninstalling it :help: :) )
    Halo (I'd never played it, so picked it up for $10 on Amazon. Really enjoyed this one)
    Star Wars: Battlefront II (surprisingly enjoyable, and I have a 7-year-old son, so we played together. And really, absurdly, replayable)
    Medieval:TW (for the umpteenth time)

    Currently playing:
    toee
    Medieval II demo (probably not going to buy it at least not for a while because RL is telling me to put the games down for a bit, but it does look fun. I play it as close to turn-based as possible by using frequent pauses)
    Axis & Allies (pbem with an old friend)
    might still load up Halo &/or Battlefront II now and then


    Looking forward to:
    NWN2 (maybe, I'll give it some time to see a: how buggy and b: how it's received (esp. based on the reactions here))
    kotb (no-brainer)
    Half-Life (yep, I've never played this one either. I have the platinum edition sitting on my shelf, and I'll install in once this recent spate of RL demands recedes)


    This is a thread I really look forward to hearing from other people on.

    Beat Recently: ToEE, Oblivion

    Playing now: ToEE

    All time faves: Daggerfall, Morrowind, BG1&2, IWD2, Wizardry VII, Civilization I&II, Warlords II & III, Master of Magic, Arcanum, ToEE

    Looking forwrd to playing: Not much at the moment. I like my RPGs single player and when possible turn based. There's nothing like that out there right now, and I don't know of any coming soon. I may try the newest BG TuTu romances some time soon; I made some items for the mod back when it was starting, and it was finally finished a year or so ago. Of course I'm looking forward to KotBL

    Games beaten ?

    Hm, far too few. I don't really know why, but I'm relatively easily frustrated.

    The latest RPGs I beated recently :

    - Summoner
    - Beyond Divinity
    - Nox (was playing this with really big pauses from the year 2002 !)
    - Divine Divinity

    Currently playing (overall, not only RPGs) :

    - Beyond Good & Evil (a real gem !)
    - The Longest Journey (another gem)
    - Tropico (still one of my favourite games somehow)
    - Gothic 1 (I think I'll start it a third time when I've finally got a new PC)
    - Pools of Radiance ( I honestly don't like that game much, but I really really want to finish it one day)
    - PS:T (I'll start it on a new PC anew just in order to finish it - same goes for BG1)
    - Siege of Avalon (which is kept alife by a small, but very good group of modders)
    - HOMM III (complete version)
    - the Realms of Arcania game "Startrail", which is still my favourite RPG. It even beats PS:T in my very personal ranking.
    - TOEE

    Looking forward to :

    Drakensang, the first RPG (after two failed attempts because of developers going out of business) that implements the rules of Germany's most popular RPG system, the Dark Eye. http://www.thedarkeyerpg.com/

    The first games for this system were the Realms of Arcania trilogy : Blade of Destiny, Startrail and Shadows over Riva.

    LMK, which had the name "The Lady, the Mage and the Knight", and the German title "Legenden der Magierkriege" failed because Larian Studios (makers of Divinity) and Attic (makers of the Realms of Arcania trilogy) split, with Attic going out of business. Guido Henkel of Attic was one of the development team for PS:T. This had led to the German saying that "every RPG Guido Henkel works with becomes a good RPG". ;)

    The second failed attempt was the game Armalion, which was only quite shortly before completion closed because developer Ikarion went out of business.
    The remains of this full-blown RPG were bought by Ascaron and they made Sacred out of it. I'm still sad about it. Insiders familiar with the Dark Eye RPG system can still spot remains of Armalion in it. The black-robed cult members for example were in Armalion priests of the (friendly, of course) god of sleep an death, Boron. Signs of other gods of this system can still be found in a few places, and NPCs had different roles in the original Armalion game.

    So now after almost 10 years this is the first *real* game for that system. I think I would exaggerate if I said kind of an earthquake ran through the community of Germany's Dark Eye players, but to me it felt this way.

    Since it's very early now, no-one can say what kind of game this might become. The goal of the devs Radon Labs is, to make kind of an "Baldur's Gate game for the Dark Eye system" or so, meaning the game mechanics, not the story itself (and not the rule system, of course).

    This the only game I'm really waiting for.

    Wow! You guys play lots of games. I've mostly given them up. I haven't bought a new one in ages, it seems. Takes away too much from other hobbies (kayaking), I guess. Now, a few years ago, it woulda been quite different. So - let's get me back on topic here with games:

    NWN + Supplements
    ToEE
    Baldur's Gate I & II + Supplements
    Diablo I & II + Expansions

    I love Air Combat sims, too, but only if you don't really have to know how to fly a real jet to play. Piston engine flight stuff lacks the power I'd gotten used to. Of these, Jane's stuff is a favorite, especially the Fighter's Anthology. Also, got into TIE Fighter & X-Wing way back when...and played throught the first Star Fleet Command game quite a bit. Every now & again I drag out the Air/Space combat stuff to keep up the hand/eye coordination.

    New stuff? I'm only waiting for KotB, really.

    Kayaking...I've logged more than a few miles on a good many rivers, lakes, inlets & an ocean, to include:

    Lynches River
    Little Pee Dee River
    Lower Edisto River
    Congaree River
    Lower Saluda River
    Broad River
    Black Creek
    Big Pine Tree Creek & Millpond
    Lake Murray
    Lake Juniper
    Forest Lake
    Lake Oakdale & Middle Swamp
    Murrel's Inlet
    Atlantic Ocean

    Takes up a lot of potential computer game time...

    Playing ToEE 5.0.2 now, at least to level 4. I love Medal of Honor, all series, and Call of Duty(all). I'm not a very good game player and I die a lot, but I enjoy the entertainment value. It took me forever to finish Medal of Honor, Allied Assault. It takes me awhile, but eventually, I can win the game. I may never finish Call of Duty 2. It's hard. Never got very far into NWN, and haven't gone back. ToEE is much better.

    Ted: You finished Pool of Radiance. You get to stick the bad guy for good (I think he is finally killed anyway) in the next game in the series: Curse of the Azure bonds.

    TOEEFE of course, NWN2 wich imho is a very good game, but you better be ready to upgrade your pc. Oblivion for pc, LotR Battle for Middle Earth II, and Titan Quest, with an occasional side trip to Baldur's Gate Tales of the Sword Coast.

    If you haven't tried it yet, BG TuTu followed by B2:SoA and ToB, with the full set of romance and NPC mods makes for an overwhelmingly cool gaming experience. Still my personal favorite, and one I might repeat in a few years.
