On The Big List Of Preemptive Nerding.

So, I finished Mass Effect in just a few days really, and my WoW time is on the decline - so I am again stuck with having to choose something again. I was fearing some big assed list of things I was currently playing and wanted finishing, but it could've been worse really.

Currently started on (and available for further play), but not finished:

Tales of Vesperia (Xbox 360, estimated 10 hours tested, lack of interesting plot and japanese grinding made me take a break from it).

Batman: Arkham Asylum (Xbox 360, estimated 5 hours tested, was intenstive and without natural breaks, so have not been something I'd like to pick up and play for short bursts of time, meaning I lost interest even if the game itself was incredibly good the hours I put into it)

Medieval II: Total War (PC, estimated 15 hours tested, just like with Rome, all the siege battles ended up being the epitome of monotony, but at least I should finish a short campaign)

Final Fantasy XII (PS2, estimated 20 hours tested, annoying characters, japanese grinding made me lose interest - I am not actually sure if I want to try to finish this.)

Shadow of the Colossus (PS2, estimated 6 hours tested, some AI stuff annoyed the crap out of me, and it felt more like being in some art gallery than actually playing a game - not sure if I want to spend more time on this either.)

Assassin's Creed (Xbox 360, estimated 6 hours tested, monotony was strongly involved in me not playing more - get a view from a tower, not very interesting combat and boring "quests" does not make a great game even though the presentation and the basic idea is excellent)

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Xbox 360, estimated 1-2 hours tested, I am not much of an RTS person, but I guess I never gave the game a proper chance, and the amount of OMG ITS SO GOOD everyone I know keeps saying [although Modern Warfare 2 is now out and is also good], I need to play it properly at some point)

Games Wishlist:

Dragonage: Origins (Xbox 360, more BioWare fanboiism, the pc version looks more interesting, but my stone age comp can't handle that - a game I would like to own if it has even remotely the same replay value as Mass Effect)

GTA IV (Xbox 360, better story, characters and everything, perhaps I can avoid temptation to not just roam around like in every other GTA I've tried - but trying to borrow it might be best.)

Resident Evil 5 (Xbox 360, liked RE 4, and have waited to buy this in the hope I could find someone else to play it with first, but it seems singleplayer will have to do.)

Bioshock (Xbox 360, so hyped up I just have to try)

Oblivion (Xbox 360, I liked a lot of previous Elder Scrolls games, so no reason I shouldn't like this one - but the whole "the game levels as you do" idea is not something I am very tempted to test, so borrowing it might be an idea.)

At the moment, I have a feeling I might end up just buying Dragonage instead of trying to start on something else and just get tempted into playing that later anyway. And will give me plenty of time to consider the next choice, anyway.
