Oh definitely...Skyrim certainly is a great game. And that's coming from me, one who's NEVER given credit to any fantasy game ever, previously.

Well yeah I've been playing Skyrim lately. Was playing MW2 a fair deal before that though. I have MW3 but the disk won't read and I was only able to play it once. This is on my Xbox.

On my computer I'm playing World of Tanks, although I was playing Medieval II Total War and Command and Conquer Generals (Zero Hour) somewhat recently.

I got Killzone 2 and 3 the other month and couldn't get into 2, haven't even played 3 yet :/ - but I really liked Killzone 1, back in the day.

I highly recommend a Gamefly account. It's cheap, and they always have everything.

And they sell games for cheap, cheaper if you're a member for a little while.

I rent the new stuff from Gamefly, and when it gets cheaper I buy it used Gamestop. The only downside is having to buy the occasional online access code.

Im carving my way through Space Marine at the moment, thoroughly recommend it if you can get it cheap (bought mine for about 12 quid). Its no great bit of gaming but there is something satisfying about watching Titus crush an Ork skull beneath his boot.

Been levelling up my fun thief/assassin character in Skyrim. I also started an Orc Berserker/shock trooper and followed the Stormcloak out of Helgen so I could get the light armor (I like the looks of the Stormcloak armor), and got a Steel Battleaxe in Riverwood, then went to Windhelm and joined the Stormcloaks.

My/Berserkers are based around light armor and heavy weaponry, so that's what I have. Not putting much into other skills except light armor and two handed, although I do carry a bow so I can hopefully soften up enemies before charging in and thrashing them with an axe.

The old FPS Painkiller. On the Windows 7 computer, all the effects that couldn't be used when it came out are now supported. Ground fog, clouds, moving fog in the cemetery, etc... all in glorious 1680x1050.

BTY, the default weapon, the Painkiller in alternate mode, is extremely effective on hoards of the more basic enemies where you can get them coming to you and quickly pick them off before they have a chance to strike back.

You still need to know the puzzles to solve such as the Vampire that cannot be killed until you knock a hole in the ceiling to let the sun shine in and bait him to walk the plank over the fire pit.
