It's pretty easy to peg Aliens vs. Predator as Game of the Week, which is exactly what I intend to do. I don't actually know that much about the game going in -- I've been inclined to keep my distance so I don't have to shove it onto an already over full pile.
But, let's talk about Everquest II for a second. Wait. Where are you guys going? This is an MMO that virtually nobody talks about, but honestly which has improved nicely over time, particularly for a more old school crowd.
I am an unabashed solo play kind of guy when it comes to my MuhMOGs, and so this has not proven to be the game for me, because EQ2 does not ask whether you'd like to play with others. It beats you up until you seek the safety of a group, but if you can find the right people to play with then there are some real adventures and challenges to be had. There is a healthy and loyal community of people playing this game who would make the argument that this, not WoW, is the quintessential massively multiplayer game.
EQII's latest expansion, Sentinel's Fate, takes wing this week.
