I thought a General Discussion thread could work quite well. The closest thing we have to this is the screenshot thread, but it's not always convenient to post a screenshot and it doesn't really allow general talk about games.
So what are you playing at the moment? Any really neat indie games you can recommend? When's HL3 coming out? Got anything to say that's even remotely related to gaming?
Been cranking a bit of this lately and it's done really well to bring something new to the adventure genre. Having only a flashlight and a gun is a nice change, allowing for some pretty intense moments as you juggle your battery and your ammunition.
Hope the second one is even better... anyone played both?
