Most modern video games of the 3D era, from what I've seen of them, suck. There are exceptions though, a few games seem to be doing something unique instead of rehashing classics badly.
Video games that I've read about and sound worth playing, once they're available under emulation or on the off chance that I get ahold of the hardware:
- Katamari Damacy
- Shadow of the Collossus
- Dance Dance Revolution
- Second Life (scared of the addiction factor though)
- Lego Star Wars
- Myst (yeah, I'm way behind the curve..)
