Game Diary - November 3, 2008: Holiday Games Status Report

September and October are done. November and December remain. We're about halfway through the heavy season of games.

Here's my status report (handheld games not included):

Games I've finished this holiday season: "Too Human," "Star Wars: The Force Unleashed," "Spore," "Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway," "Dead Space," "Gears of War 2"

Game I'm currently playing and am almost done with: "Fable II"

Games I tried for several hours each and am unlikely to go back to until 2009 (if ever): "Wario Land: Shake It," "Mercenaries 2," "de Blob," "Viva Pinata: Trouble In Paradise"

Games I sampled and am saving to return to as "dessert" this season after I'm done with the big stuff: "Wii Music," "Little Big Planet"

Games I plan to play through, in the order I plan to start them:

  1. "Mirror's Edge"
  2. "Resistance 2"
  3. "Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts"
  4. "Fallout 3"
  5. "Left 4 Dead"
  6. "Prince of Persia"
  7. "Far Cry 2"
  8. "Spider-Man: Web of Shadows"
  9. "Tomb Raider: Underworld"
  10. "Crysis: Warhead"

I'm sure I'm forgetting stuff. And I don't know which category to ultimately put "Nerf N-Strike" or "Call of Duty: World At War" in. What's your list?

Next: I'm going to my parents' house tonight so I can vote in the morning (I never did move my polling place -- gotta do that by the next election.) So no console gaming for me tonight or tomorrow morning. Unless a voting machine counts as a console.
