One of my favourite franchises, which refreshed the FPS genre in so many ways, which was almost perfect in it's entirety, has been dumbed down to an average, mediocre console-port-trash shooter.
Someone on these forums mentioned a few days back that the gaming industry is at it's glory...
Glory = butchering?
I expected that, why I've opted to give F3AR a miss.
Mass Effect 2 mainly, playing some Wipeout campaign on Elite also. CPU is cheap as hell getting a big speed boost at the start then the race is decided if just once you hit some mines or a bomb or get hit with a missile, and all the AI behind the lead racer love their mines and missiles, and getting in your way everytime you try hit a speed pad, barrel roll or use a speed boost power up.

I've reinstalled Deus Ex and I'm doing another playthrough in preparation for Human Revolution.
Okay, so I bought Castlevania: Lords of Shadow back in December, and didn't get too far into the game before I realized I wasn't overly fond of the controls and camera. Six months go by with me not touching the game. I can safely say without a doubt that I absolutely H-A-T-E this game and find it unfathomable how anyone can enjoy it. Believe it or not the fixed camera is what bothers me most out of the game. I can never see anything and miss all sorts of things I'm sure because I can't toggle the camera around.
And it could be just because I absolutely suck at the game, but I find the monsters to be far too difficult for the first few levels. If these monsters are a prerequisite to monsters later in the game, then it would be nothing short of impossible.
What really irritates me is the story is actually interesting. I have always enjoyed the Castlevania series and found the 2D versions of the series to always be awesome. I have been spending more time in the menu constantly hitting "Restart Last Checkpoint" because I can't seem to kill a normal enemy, then no, I'm done.
I realize this game has a decent fanbase on the forum, but in all truth, I cannot understand why. Terrible controls. TERRIBLE!

Except they're incredibly fluid.
Just completed my second run through with Chris on RE Directors Cut. It still takes me up to 5 hours to beat this game although off all the games in the series this is probably the least played. Also It reminded me how godawful the story and voice acting was in this game :/
Team Fortress 2 with Dot50Cal, Alzaire and Zombie Fred.
I'm serious, we need to get a little group together at some point and play together. It's gonna be biblical.
unlocked the 'I'm Kind of a Big Deal' achievement in the PC version of Dragon Age: Origins. just be glad the consoles versions don't have this achievement.
I'm quite surprised how much I'm playing Mercenaries 3D. Nonetheless, the game is a tough son of a bitch; the EX levels are torture for single player, and despite indications that framerate issues, animations, and the aim and shoot etc make it easier, I have to disagree (most of those complaints are from people who haven't even played the game, but I digress). My friend and I went through local play and beat that 15 wave mission with an SS rank, and that took us a while. I feel as if the utter swarm of enemies and other factors (multiple boss enemies on screen at the same time, among other things) do well to keep the challenge up, but playing it with a friend is a blast.
Still rounding out American McGee's Alice (I hope I'm almost finished), playing a few races in WipEout (still suck), and some Uncharted 3 Beta.

I just finished Ocarina of Time 3D (3DS) with a 100% completion; all hearts, all skulltulas, items, etc.
It was the most disorganized playthrough I've ever played, but it really helped me achieve 100% right before Ganon's Castle.
I already had +60 Skulltulas, 13 hearts, the Biggoron's Sword, Iron Boots, all tunics, and saved every carpenter from Gerudo's Fortress before the Forest Temple.
The first playthrough took me about +20 hours and I wasn't in a hurry to beat it at all. xD
I just started a new game on the Master Quest and it feels rather fresh with the world mirrored and all even though I beat the original Master Quest on the GC. I just beat the Deku Tree dungeon and now I'm taking a break from Zelda to resume later.
I really like how you take twice as much damage in OoT3D Master Quest, in my opinion the game is quite easy so this helps make the game much more interesting than it already is.
I'll be playing some Uncharted 3 Beta multiplayer now....

good lord, i hope there isn't a percentage completion in Ocarina of Time 3D. i can 100% the original in 15 hours nonstop.
Still playing Mass Effect 2. Although I did play a little bit of Fallout: New Vegas on the side.
Team Fortress 2
I'm usually the Medic as it's the class I most enjoy playing, though I'll occasionally play Sniper if I feel like the team could do with taking out enemy snipers.
I'm looking into an N64 emulator, just so I can play the glory that is GoldenEye 007 once again.
