I usually play one console game for a month or two, beat it, then move on to another.  Also I'll usually have another PC game on the side I'll poke at. How about you? Let's hear it!

Currently playing:

Zelda 2 (NES)

Also on the side:

Minecraft
Earth Eternal (Or at least, hoping it comes back soon!)

Post what you're playing!  And come back and post again when you play something new. [;)

Currently Playing:  Way of the Samurai 3 (Xbox 360)

Weird game, but you keep your loot whenever you die/beat the game, so it's fun to kick around for a bit.

On the Side:  Shadow Wolf Debugging, and whatever random game my brother has this week.

Not much gaming at all... but when I actually am in mood for a game, I just look at my steam library and launch something. Most recently, "something" tends to be Sword of the Stars, in which I still suck. {;)
Outside of Steam, I also have installed and thus on the "hmm, what to play" list: Freespace SCP, Space Rangers 2, and... System Shock 1 in DOSbox.
There's actually a few games I have and never played yet, but I never feel up to installing one. {;)
* Tvorsk hides before Virmir pokes him to play some Good Games on (S)NES emulator... will do, will do, sooner or later!
And well... *sigh*... don't we all want EE back?

Mostly getting my tail kicked by the Megaman X Collection on the Gamecube... I grew (or would I still be growing up?  |:P) with easy, FPS games, and all of a sudden, there's platforming and tons and tons of projectile dodging! Tactics! Thinking!
This is all brand new stuff to me... >_>
And, of course, there's always time for Minecraft and Team Fortress 2 on the side!

My roommate brought a bunch of N64 games and I will be taking advantage to play some stuff I've not had the chance to in a long while. Ocarina of Time... Majora's Mask... Banjo Kazooie... Yoshi Story... oh so many things...

Of the four elements,
None is predominant.
Of the four seasons,
None lasts forever.

Beat Zelda 2 the other day. Yay! (Okay, I cheated a bit and broke out the old Nintendo Power "NES Atlas" for the Grand Palace. [;))

Next up is Live A Live for the SNES, which is an obscure RPG by Squaresoft that was never released in the US, so am playing a translation (thanks for reminding me I need to get back to this, LoC. [;))  I have a flash cart, which means I can play obscure fan-translated games like this on my real SNES.  Mwa ha ha ha... [;)

Beat Live A Live the other day. All I can say is wow... definitely recommended for any classic RPG fans. [:)

I'm giving Chrono Cross for the PS1 another try.  I tried once five years ago, played a bit, but couldn't really get into it.

(Also, GRRRRR to playing a PS1 game for 30 minutes, then finding out you need to restart because your blasted memory card is full... [;))

Yay Chrono Cross!

The game changes depending on some choices you make during your playthrough, and that is both minor story changes and different characters you get to meet and use.

There are both a "good" and "bad" endings. Make sure to have a save before going to fight the final boss, so in case you don't figure out of to get the good ending you can give it a try again :P
You can recognize the bad ending easily since it's just the credits rolling right after the final boss, leaving you wondering wth just happened.

Btw, unlike Chrono Trigger, there aren't 15 or so different endings achievable by doing different stuff during the game.
In this one, there many different "alternative endings" achieved in the "new game +" mode, where you can go and kill the final boss at any time during the story and thus triggering a different ending depending on your choices and how far in the story you're at the time.
They are all silly and amusing to watch, and certainly anything but canon :P

Yeah... I hate games with multiple endings, honestly.  I just want to play the blasted thing once, enjoy it, but be done with it 'cause I've got tons of other games to play too. [;)  I'll make sure to save an extra file though so I don't get the bad one.  Thanks!
