But only if the terrible controls and complete lack of atmosphere don't get there first.

Seriosuly I know that awful controls are a bit of a staple for "horror" games (I'm looking at you Resident Evil) but Dead Space realy does feel terrible. Then there's the complete generic blandness of it, I've never played anything so dull to walk through, what frights are in the game are just shock not proper horror.

Then again I'm a fan of the Stalker series so anything will suffer compared to constant that series trademark of soul crushing dread mixed with brief moments of absolute terror.

Yes, some people like mediocre games . That's why WoW is successful.

Well, that's because that's a social network masquerading as a game.

Don't worry, I'm sure you'll love it. Don't let the internet trick you into believing that things that are liked by lots of people are actually bad, because they are disliked by a few people.

-Minecraft. I'm sorry, but being able to build anything, anywhere is just boss.

-Cities XL 2011 (with the GEM unlocker mod - hurray Ski/Beach Resorts!)

-Trying to force myself to suffer through the Dead Space snoozefest, but... Meh.

-Just finished Metro 2033 from the Homefront preorder, which wasn't bad for a game based on a book. I really liked the way that ghosts worked in it, how you needed a flashlight to see their shadows so that you didn't walk into them.

-Also waiting until Summer to get back into ME2 so that I don't have to wait forever for more Shepard Epicness.

For me it's kind of a huge, HUGE put off that your starting weapon is practically the best gun in the game. And the general rules of predicting Necromorph ambushes? "Does the room have vents, scattered undamaged corpses, large open areas, or dead Necromorphs that you didn't kill? Ambush!"

After a while it gets so easy to tell when/where you're going to get attacked that calling Dead Space a survival horror game, and not simply a sci-fi adventure or adventure horror game, is insulting to the survival horror genre. There's less survival and more "AH-HAHAHA! TAKE PLASMA CUTTER FUGLY! YOU WANT SOME!? HOW 'BOUT YOU! BOOM! HEADSHOT!"

I'm actually playing Warhammer Online right now, just subscribed for 2 months, despite the horrible forum community...

I plan to get a couple of characters to Rank 40/Renown Rank 100, just because I like the game, then drop it for something else...

Also, I'm probably the last person in the world still playing Lord of the Rings Conquest. I would literally kill for it to go back online, even if just for a day...

Some people play to win, some people play for fun. Me? I play to kill toy soldiers.

Made me laugh. Jump off the boat before it sinks, mate. Andy did it early.

RR100 isn't as easy as you say...it will take you probably a month of real-time playing at the least.
