I've put over 350 hours into skyrim and it's still just as amazing as it was on day 1, especially after all the awesome mods that really transform the gameplay to something truly amazing. All the little tweaks and stuff really add up.

With that said, I'm plowing through Alan Wake and loving it. Kinda repetitve but the atmosphere and scenery are great and the story is pretty cool in a certain steven king psychological horror/thriller sort of way.

I've only put 184 hours into Skyrim. Can't imagine 350.

Great game though. You got me thinking about it and I might start playing it again.

I've rolled 3 characters at this point. One on my desktop, one on my desktop at work (during down time of course ) and another on my laptop.

All lvl 35+

Once I get my GTX 680, I'll start a 4th guy.

Also, all 3 have pretty much unfolded EXACTLY the same in terms of how I played

lol I had no choice. I sold my GTX470's whlie they're still relevant and worth some money to help fund my laptop (which I needed much more) and that pretty much ended my gaming on my desktop. My laptop didn't like the INI changes I had made to the files and kept crashing to desktop when trying to load my saved character. I said heck with it and just started a new guy. It was for the better though anyways. I get to hook my laptop up to my HDTV and bask in the big screen and surround sound.

Dragon fights like that are a thousand times better than what they were on my desktop.

Skyrim gets my vote, most play time for your money and it's the best game on the list too.

NEver played ME3, so i'll have to go along with skyrim. Alan wake is a refreshing game with an interesting concept. But it got repetitive along the way.

I just started a new character in Skyrim (already have 244 hours in ) and I'm switching my vote to Skyrim.

Sticking with all light armor and single handed weapons this time, And building the destruction tree and magika regen as far as I can.

This game is a blast.
