FF7 is awesome, and the orange box when it released was awesome.
Half-Life 2 is, without question and without any doubt, the greatest single-player FPS of all time.
I just....couldn't get into it. I tried to go through the single-player two seperate times and it just started to bore me and lacked enough action.
What I really want to check out is the new CS. BF3 didn't come close to what I wanted it to be but i'm hoping CS will.
