Skyrim I can get free through work once Bethesda has verified the copy of my pay stub I've sent to them. Oblivion consumed far more hours of my life than I'd care to admit, and I'm sure Skyrim will do the same once I get it.
Mass Effect is one of the few games that got the third person right.

If you don't know anything about X3, use the google machine. I'm not going to spoon feed you.

Think I'm just lamenting is what it boils down to. It seems very few gamers feel as I do anymore. Kinda' sucks as I may have to find a new "primary" hobby. I've been feeling this way for years but haven't really pursued anything else. Probably time to.
No, people enjoy being social and playing games with their friends. Not sitting all alone and playing SP by their self all the time. Really, if you can't find a good SP game today you should just give up gaming all together as there are tons out there... Hell, the ones I mentioned you even said you were interested in but never tried, so how can you say there are no SP games?
