When I play video games, I really play the game. It's hard for me to find one that suits my needs, and doesn't end up frustrating me to high heaven. Point: I am VERY picky about what I play.

Everything else I can "play" for a little while and then get up and do other things, but unfortunately there are a few games the SUCK me in. God of War (the whole series) is amazing. Ratchet and Clank (haven't played the PSP versions) are so much fun.

Right now, I'm playing Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, for original Xbox. Graphics are great for the time, and it's a good game all around.

It's 12:44pm, on Sunday, I'm wandering around the dungeon of Bloodmire Manor, just on the edge of Baldur's Gate. I open a door and walk through it to find a room no larger than a cell, with a treasure chest in it. I open it to reveal gold. I walk out of the room and toward the next door. I open it when prompted, then stepped into darkness. My entire view when dark, I couldn't see my character, but I could still clearly see the map. I started walking around wondering what I've stumbled upon. Can't do magic. Can't do anything... but walk around. As I am making these observations the creepy background noises start seeping into my environment. ::shutters:: Drip..... drip.... aaaaooooohhhhhh (very very quiet)....drip.... very quiet clank..... with creepy notes and stuff.

The sound effects in this level are amazing.

I'm going to restart from my last load point now, before I really creep myself out....

Just thought I'd share.
