Banished, it's a fun indie city-buildingbgame where you have to manage a saml village to grow into a big town. Think Minecraft but as a city builder.

I also played Fallout: New Vegas. The best RPG I ever played.

Not much of a game, but I recently finished Narcissu and Narcissu Side 2nd.

Description: "Shortly after his twentieth birthday, the protagonist is admitted to hospice care at a hospital in Mito, Ibaraki. There he meets Setsumi, a women only a few years older than he is, who is also terminally ill. After collectively deciding that they refuse to die either in the hospital or at home with their families, they escape the hospital together in a stolen car. Not knowing where to go, they travel west across Japan's many highways and prefectures, later deciding on taking a journey to the narcissus fields of southern Awaji Island."

It gives you an interesting view inside the mind of a terminally ill patient. The main thematic conflict involves the coming of inevitable death and the feelings of the people you leave behind. Not the greatest story but I enjoyed it nonetheless. It's a free game; you could probably find a download link through Google.

I haven't bought any game recently, but I've been replaying some Gamecube games like Sonic Adventure 2 and Soul Calibur 2.

Oh lord. I hated "N. Ballism" and that one similar stage that was set underwater. I just stick with Crash 2 & Warped.
I found Beach Ball quite easy. N. Ballism was only easy in the Trophy Challenge. The Sky Balls and Pogo Padlock crystal challenges are the most difficult. I hate it when the red balls are actually made by your opponents, which in my opinion makes it twice as difficult and annoying. Another level that probably gives you pain is probably Toxic Dash. Warp Room 4 is definitely the hardest warp room in the entire game.

I have Crash 2 and I completed the entire game in just 10 days or so.

I have the game too (it's an original copy with the 3-D cover). I have completed Crash 2 with all crystals & gems once, but that was back about 5 years ago. I'm STILL debating whether it's better than Warped or not, Warped had those annoying underwater stages. The plane stages were pretty frustrating too with the Time Trials.

CTR is pretty good too. Haven't touched my PS1 for about a month. I should get back to it though. ;)

You might have thought Crash 3: Warped was frustrating, just go check the very first Crash game from 1996. You can't use the R3 and L3 buttons to play it, and if you die in a certain level, all the crates from that level come back. Even the first level (N. Sanity Beach) was quite frustrating. When I found out that I missed about 6 crates or so, I threw a temper tantrum.

Any avid Bandicoot fan like me would know the first game is hard. "The Lost City", man that stage was very frustrating from what I remember. And the boulder stages had some garbage AI. The AI was much better in Crash 2 & Warped.

Thing is there weren't analog controllers for the PlayStation in 1996... being only born that year I still know this stuff. XD

Modern Warfare 3.... Yeah... I'm THAT type of gamer... All I do nowadays is quickscope like a champ. :p My friends are now playing League of Legends and I'm honestly considering trying it out this weekend.

I lost many lives just because of that bouncing frog thing. It took me about 40 attempts to get past him.

Oh yeah, that frog (I know, not the "magic frog" from Warped). The first game had other annoying levels but I can't remember which one challenged me the most.

I could not complete The Wrath of Cortex. Not after all that frustration with "Medieval Madness". :p

The series pretty much declined after that. I have to say though, the GBA games were almost as great as the original PS1 games. Nitro Kart was kinda whatever.

Total War: Shogun 2. It's an awesome startegy game with nice, realistic graphic. I'm a huge fan of startegy genre that require me to manage stuff.

I have Crash Twinsanity and I think it is a pretty good game.
