Rogue! Different every time you play.

A great online version:

Right now I'm all about League of Legends, but I'm also jumping back and forth between Bioshock and Fallout New Vegas. I dunno why I don't just sit and play them all the way through, maybe I get bored after a bit

Just started playing Tomb Raider 2013, i must say its the best game ever designed. the game is almost 10GB in size and high in terms of graphics with life like display and actions, but still consume very less processor usage and ram. it is addictive.
apart form that, started with battlefield bad company 2 (already done with battlefield 3), NFS most wanted 2012 and GTA IV.

My favourite games are:
- Infocom (Zork, Hitchhiker's Guide, Planetfall...)
- Ultima IV
- Diablo
- Doom, Quake
- Unreal

But I haven't bought a full commercial game for a long time. Today I like more, the old, small, independent games Smilie
