I recently got the Hitman Collection, and I have to say that Contracts is definately a great game. The targets are generally more evil and less target-ish (for example, the first target in Hitman 2 was a mafia don, someone you can definately picture being a target of a hitman, while one mission in Contracts sees you take out two terrorists taking place in a dirty-bomb trade, which seems more like a job for the CIA than a hitman) than in previous games, but the settings are awsome (including a slaughterhouse-cum-nightclub (a guy in the meat-trade is holding a party), an english mansion, and a biker club), and there's more ways to complete missions than ever. It's also actually possible to finish almost every mission without firing a shot, which was literally impossible in some of the missions in HM1 and 2.

I've recently been revisiting an old classic: System Shock 2. It strikes me just how effectively the developers make you feel so completely, utterly alone, and how well the story is told. Through the crew's logs, the horrifying history of the Von Braun unfolds. From the initial constant technical difficulties of the ship, to the discovery of life on Tau Ceti V, to the seduction towards the unity of The Many and increasing insanity of the captain and various crew members (I remember being utterly horrified when I read the logs regarding the Cyborg Motherwives), to the civil war between the seduced, the other crew, the security forces, and the soldiers of the Rickenbacker, and finally the desperate surivival of the crew as they struggle to fight back against the forces of The Many. Back to the sense of loneliness they create so well, its mainly done through giving the player the hope of meeting other survivors (even having them communicate with you through email), only to snatch them away from you just before you can reach them.

I haven't played it, but looking into buying it on eBay, I saw that it's $50 average. Pricey thing.

$50 US? I picked it up for $10 AU from a bargain bin in Electronics Boutique about 2 1/2 years ago.

I think it is. It probably even went down in price. It adds alot of ways to win. Also alot of ways to forge alliances and stuff. I like it, not to mention some additions and changes adds lots of new stratagies.

I don't have the $$ for the expansion right now. I'm content playing single player for now anyway. Multiplayer does look like a lot of fun though.

I have Civ4, but I'm definitely not addicted. It's a solid game, but the endless turns of waiting for my technology to develop just turned me off.

When I first played Civ 3, I was more addicted to it than to any other game I had played before, save for one: Pokemon Red. I got it, along with a gameboy colour, for Christmas in '99. I would lie in bed at night, playing it until 1 AM (and this was when I was 10, mind you), and this lasted for around 3 weeks. Towards the end I was hearing the music even when I wasn't playing it.

Aye indeed I remember those long nights filled with pokemon adventures. They were long nights indeed and many a battery died for my enjoyment.

Pokemon was a good 'un, but my most addictive game was probably Dragon Warrior Monsters...3...I think. For the Gameboy Colour...oh, those endless months of delicately experimenting to get pureblood Boss monsters...breeding monsters is probably the best idea ever to come to a game.

They had that it pokemon too (though, not in the original games). Pokemon was definitely my biggest addictive game, though if I stopped playing KoTOR for a while, I used to start twitching, and I actually spent an entire day playing the sims 2 when I first got it.

You know how sometimes when you find a new song you really like, you listen to it over and over without getting tired of it? Well right now that song for me is the theme music of Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. Between 1:24 and 4:00 its a brilliant song, particularly from 2:30 to 4:00.
