It's not all work for me in 2008. I have been catching up on my gaming as well. Bought a new PC, finished Hinterland a couple of times, finally finished Half Life 2: Episode Two and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Both are great games. My only regret is that I didn't play most of Episode Two in my new PC - nevermind, one day I will play again.. one day I hope.
But this post is about the greatest games release in 2008 - Fallout 3. I bought the game through Steam and didn't regret it at all. It's all I wish it to be and it's been a while since I have had the pleasure to play a good RPG. So I am enjoying every moment I could spend on this game and would highly recommend anyone to try it out. Just google it if you want to read the numerous positive reviews. Be prepare for a perfect 10 score from all these glowing reviews.. :)
