No. There really aren't many games like Morrowind in general. Certainly none on console.

Thanks. I guess I may try getting Morrowind to play on the 360, I heard that it was possible.

It is. I play it on mine now and then. You should play it on PC though. The mods for it are great, especially the graphics upgrades.

I may try that... but one thing I loved about Morrowind on Xbox was being able to kick back in a recliner and play... Mouse and keyboard is fun for MMORPGs but when I tried Skyrim on PC I got bored after a week or so... Although that's probably more a function of Skyrim not being as good a game. Is there a good usb controller you can buy that basically functions like an Xbox controller?

Edit: what do you think of this? http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Xbox-Wireless-Controller-Windows/dp/B004QRKWKQ/ref=pd_sim_e_3

I love Dark Souls but it's slow going for me because I will get stuck and give up for a few months. I probably would have been better at it when I was a teenager but I'm too old to have those kinds of reflexes.

Fiancée preordered God of War: Ascension Collector's Edition for me for Christmas. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Also looking forward to Aliens: Colonial Marines, although won't be surprised if it sucks.

That trailer is so epic. It's too bad all the characters and dialogue in SC are bland and hokey.

Natural Selection 2
I've had so much fun with this game. It's normally $25 or so on Steam. It's a thinking man's FPS. You play as either Aliens or Marines and maps have resource points. Your team has to capture and defend points and tech up to beat the other. Each team has a commander role who plays the game as you would an RTS with a top down view and builds structures and manages your resources.

The community is generally older. Very few teenagers play. Many people use a mic and are friendly. I think it's a good game because there is a good sense of team work and for me there is a genuine sense of relief or frustration tied up with every game.

Definitely looking forward to Heart of the Swarm. Also looking forward to Defense of the Ancients.

Love games that can easily be played by a group of friends together. Some college friends and I get together a few times a month and play video games online. It's a great way to stay in touch when we are all spread out all over the country. The trick is finding the right game. SC2 team games are a favorite, as is Civ 5. For a while, we played Battlefield 3.

I'm honestly more excited for the HotS campaign since multiplayer takes far too much time and effort to be good. 1v1's are hopeless unless you put a good amount of practice in, and team games are a total crapshoot.

I don't know, I've been pretty impressed by the matchmaking. I pretty much always have a 50/50 record, and I've been ranked everything from bronze to platinum at different times and with different teams.

Currently, I suck, havent played in 6+ months, and am silver. Yet, I still get matchups that give me a 50/50 record.

The highest I've ever ranked was Diamond, and despite taking several months off team games and a year off from 1v1, I will always be placed in Diamond. I've tried throwing my placement matches to no avail - no matter what, I'm in Diamond league. Its okay for team play, but being rusty in Diamond 1v1 is brutal. I'm probably Gold at best now on account of not playing 1v1s in forever and its really hard to improve when you get wiped all the time.

I will say it is more reluctant to downgrade you than upgrade you, which, yes, can be aggravating sometimes.
