Fruit of the loon

In my continuing quest to play every game that's not EverQuest, I've been playing quite a bit of System Shock 2, and as Blue accurately predicted, I'm hooked. Boy am I ever hooked. I haven't enjoyed a single player game this much since Half-Life, and I can't recommend the game any more highly. Of course, it should be pointed out that the game is certainly not for everyone. It's definitely more RPG than action...there's quite a bit of action in it, but if you aren't willing to put up with the skills and inventory system you ain't going to get far. If you can make it past that, you'll find yourself totally addicted, much like I am right now. Oh, and one other thing - make sure you've got a great sound setup for this one. The positional audio is some of the best I've ever heard. Really creepy stuff.

Link of the Day: iPic: The Match Head Sized Web Server (thanks to whoever sent that in first...I think it was Brian Grivna).
