Just curious what the gamers are up to.

Currently trudging through Fallout 3 on the Xbox 360. Finished the main quest and now doing some of the extra ones. Got Borderlands a few days ago, so may get into that, or Batman: Arkham Asylum. Been sitting on the self for a couple of months and the superhero game thread has got me thinking about it again. The upcoming Transformer: War for Cybertron looks like it could be interesting. Just saw a trailer for a new Laura Croft game that has a Diablo feel to it.

Started Heavenly Sword on the PS3. So far, not bad. Looks beautiful. Always impressed by the quality of some of the games on the PS3. Infamous blew me away.

Got Tatsunoko vs. Capcom for the Wii, but want to finish Super Mario Bros. first.

The problem with the Wii and PS3 is that they are hooked up in the living room and I usually game after the kids go to bed. The Xbox is in the office where I can't wake them, so it gets more game time.

For budget reasons, I usually end up playing older, used games, so right now I'm going through Burnout Paradise and Fable II on my 360.  I loved Fallout 3, got it for my birthday last year and played it for a long time.

Recently got Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition.  Really enjoying that.

Revved up to buy Red Dead Revolver either tomorrow or the day after.  Been waiting for a really good open world Western and from the reviews, as well as playing GTA by Rockstar (the same makers), I'm looking forward to it. 

Last year I was playing Far Cry 2.  Fun game, but I got out of it after awhile.  Totally enjoyed Uncharted 2, Infamous, and Batman: Arkham Asylum.

My Sega Master System still works. I love me some Space Harrier.

As far as systems go, I'm all PS3 all the time.  I do own a Wii and have enjoyed it, but don't play it nearly as much as I do my PS3.  I've also got my original Atari 2600, Sega Genesis, PSOne and 2, although none of those are currently hooked up. In the past I've had a ton of fun hooking up my 2600 and playing some of the games that I still enjoy, which turn out to be quite a few.  Haven't tried hooking it up to an HD TV yet for fear that it'll look pretty crappy, so that's why I've still got an old tube set laying around.

"I've also got my original Atari 2600, Sega Genesis, PSOne and 2"
This is the coolest thing I've read in quite a while! Bravo sir, I salute you. :)
(I will always have fond memories of my Sega Genesis days)

My son ( almost 6 ) and me are fighting for the PSP. He wants to play the Lego Indiana Jones, I want to play Ghostbusters.

I still don't want a Wii...

Can't afford a next gen system, so I'm still trudging along with my PS2. If I could afford it, I'd get a Playstation 3 and an X-Box 360. I was anti-original X-Box, but the 360 has a bunch of RPGs I'd like to play. (I'm primarily into RPGs and fighting games, ala the Tekken series) I'm most upset I can't play the current Final Fantasy game, as it looks to be the best one since FF X.

I picked up Shin Megami Tensei Devil Summoner 2 (Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon) a while back but barely started it and haven't been in the mood to play it. I actually picked up Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 and  Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love and finished those after buying Devil Summoner 2.

On my computer, I have The Last Remnant and Jade Empire that I bought off Steam and need to complete, and I have Mass Effect 2 (boxed edition; I pre-ordered at Gamestop) which I've played through several times with different character classes (Have played it through as an Infiltrator twice (two different characters, one male, one female); my only character imported from the first game was a Vanguard). I haven't played any of the downloadable content from the Firewalker pack on (I'm not sure if I'm willing to shell out money for the pay content, and I'm mad they made Kasumi, the last squad member, pay content)

And I'm still playing the Champions Online MMO. May shut it down and reactivate my World of Warcraft account (shut it down in January) once the Cataclysm expansion comes out, which may be in July. I'm mostly Alliance, on Whisperwind, if anyone else plays. (I do have Horde characters, but my favorite is a Tauren Deathknight on an RP server (Steamwheedle Cartel), and I don't use the two I have on Whisperwind much. My Orc Warrior is only 14 or 15 and will be getting deleted if I go back, so I can make a Worgen character in Cataclysm. The other is a Blood Elf Mage in the early to mid 20s. Whisperwind is an Alliance heavy server, so there's rarely anyone to play with Horde-side and I hate soloing all the time)

I have almost 0 interest in trying DC Universe Online, due it being run by Sony Online Entertainment. They're one of the main reasons I quit Everquest after playing it for about 3 years total (Played 6 months or so, quit for a few months due to financial reasons, then went back for a little under 2 and a half years and quit for good during the Gates of Discord expansion; went back once during a free account reactivation and it was sad! (Only played two days of a free week)

I recently got Lego Batman for Wii from a sale and it's been fun. I haven't bought Sakura Wars: So Long My Love yet, because the Wii version didn't include the extra disc with the Japanese voice acting - I'm holding out for the price to drop a bit.

I'm not using my DS as much as I'd like to - one of the hinges holding the top screen cracked, so I'll have to get a replacement casing for it soon. I now use it just for small amounts of Pokémon Soul Silver (main quest completed, so mostly just level grinding my Pokémon and looking for any species I don't have), though I picked up Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure recently from a sale - it's a platformer/puzzle game hybrid, starring an Engli... I mean, Tealandish gentleman adventurer who can also summon a giant robot to help out.

Of course, I've always got my library of games for NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, Mega Drive (Genesis), Saturn, Dreamcast, Game Boy Advance and WonderSwan Color to fall back on.

Currently working through Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness on the PSP.  I have Disgaea 2 for the PS2, but also picked up the PSP version to be played during future flights and convention line waits.  I do occasionally go back and play some of the old PSOne titles, like FFVII, FFVIII, and Xenogears.

Will most likely get a PS3 about the same time I get an HD TV (whenever my current STD Def TV decides to burn out).

I'm going through Burnout Paradise and Fable II...

I was really surprised by Burnout Paradise. Not your typical racing game, which is what I like. And Fable II was a lot of fun. I played it twice.
