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.

Mass Effect

I'm quite surprised no one has mentioned it yet, but if you're looking for an RPG with an immersive storyline and plenty of interesting quests, may I suggest you give Mass Effect a shot?

It's rather good, the first I thoroughly enjoyed playing (and was sad to finish) in quite a while. Soon after finishing it I played Fallout 3, and I can say that I didn't enjoy it anywhere near as much.

Perhaps it was the big void in decent games prior to coming to Mass Effect, but it was quite a relief to find a decent game to play after all this time.
