Games Not too long ago, I was convinced that the modern day gaming world was a rather empty and shallow one. If you grew up with games like The 7th Guest, the Keen series, Metroid, adventure games like Monkey Island or Full Throttle, and so on, more modern games seemed to have little to offer, besides yet another nameless hero in a grey space suit killing aliens in a grey world with the same set of twelve weapons. However, a little speck of hope was flickering on the horizon, a game seemingly made by people who could read my mind; a game about a post-apocalyptic wasteland, filled with quests and epic stories, where you were free to do whatever you wanted. Yes, I looked forward to Fallout 3, and since my computer was too old to run any game more recent than Wolfenstein, I decided to buy a game console. Read on to see how my venture into the world of modern gaming turned out.

Yeah, Chrono Trigger. I just was about to mention it, too. That was an awesome game with an complex storyline. A game I also like very much is Zelda: Ocarina of Time. A thing they both have in common is the really good music! If the game music annoys me I can't enjoy the game.

However, there is a relatively new game I like very much: Portal. Well, if it just wasn't so extremely short!
