    I loved the HL2 car levels - probably because that thing sounds so cool damn cool, especially when you hit the boost :) I loved rolling up on a settlement, jumping out, blasting on some baddies, then jumping back in the car and tearing off. Lots of fun.

    The crane part was pretty wicked. I remember the first time, I parked the car juuuust out of range of the crane. I didn't want to go down and move it, so I managed to swing the big magnet out just far enough to grab the car. Cool moment.

    So, Drew, you're saying you want a game that absolutely kicks your ass?

    Go buy an Xbox, and buy Ninja Gaiden. It's one of the most difficult, yet fun games ever made. They made the first two bosses in the game just about the most difficult to beat. The idea is that the real game starts in level 3, and you better be damn good at the game to get to that point. It took me several frustrating hours to beat the first boss, and it took over a month to figure out the second boss' weakness.

    However, one you know their weaknesses, you own them. Each has one, but it takes forever to learn. I had kept up on the message boards for the game, and many many people were extremely frustrated. I almost returned the game after playing for a month and not being able to beat the 2nd boss.

    Bar none, the best action game ever made. The graphics, play-control, and depth are just awesome. Once you learn how to fight with the character's strengths and style, it's amazing what opens up in that game.

    No, after I kicked the Baldur's Gate habit, I rediscovered my social life. I'd missed it, lol. ;)

    Hmm. Sounds like something I'd like. I'll try to resist, but if I crack you'll be the first to know. :)

    Legacy Of Kain - Defiance is proving to be pretty cool. I lost my social life when I discovered Final Fantasy.
