The past few months have been an amazing time to be a gamer.  There have been so many good games released that I've had a hard time keeping up.  In fact, I have even been neglecting games that I enjoy.  It turns out that I am a two game kinda guy.  Even so, I feel a little bad about the games I just don't have time for.

As I mentioned, I only have time to play two major games at a time.  The primary one is Warhammer Online (I know, big surprise).  The current number two game is Mass Effect 2, which I hope to complete in the next couple weeks.  When I do, a new game will move into its place.  It could be any one of the following:

Fallen Earth.  I've been a big fan of FE since before they launched.  Even though I have not played it lately, I am still subscribed.  Icarus has made a lot of great improvements and I expect them to continue to do so. One challenge FE will face getting back to the #2 spot is its theme.  Science Fiction is my favorite genre and there is another game which fits the bill.

Star Trek Online.  STO will likely be the next game I play when I finish ME2.  It's no secret that Cryptic rushed its release, but I am pretty patient these days.  When I do return to it, it will be primarily for PvE.  I just don't expect Cryptic to be able to balance PvP well.

Global Agenda.  I own the game and don't need a subscription, so I'll just play this whenever I feel like it.  being able to jump in and play whenever will get it played more often than a game I have to re-subscribe to.  It's a shame I suck at First Person Shooters though.  That's why I let the turrets do the shooting for me. 

Everquest 2.  My time with you is not finished EQ2. I expect to come back for a month now and then, as there is too much content to ignore and some great people to play with. 

Dawntide.  I am still watching how this game develops.  There is a lot of potential and the dev team makes some big strides every patch.  It's just that lately I have had less free time, so I want to spend it playing rather than testing.
