I have spent a lot of time with the orig­i­nal Gears Of

War [1]. I ob­vi­ously en­joyed play­ing co-op with a friend. The over-the-top char­ac­ters, and nat­u­rally the chain­saw, are great as­pects of the game. I am now ex­cited about the fifth game that was an­nounced at the most re­cent E3, and for where the jour­ney leads. Bionic Com­mando Rearmed [2] is another game that I en­joyed a lot. Visu­ally it looked great, it was fast, and the game­play was pretty hec­tic for a plat­former. We worked closely with the team that cre­ated it at Grin. The Chal­lenge Rooms should be called the Im­pos­si­ble Rooms! I have also played a lot of the Dragon Age [3] games and en­joy them a lot. Of all of them I prob­a­bly en­joyed the first one the most. Also, who doesn’t love a great RPG and the evo­lu­tion of re­la­tion­ships be­tween your party mem­bers? Vin Diesel’s Chronicles Of Rid­dick: Es­cape From Butcher Bay [4] is a game I was re­ally im­pressed by. As a Swede, I was proud that it was de­vel­oped in Swe­den, for starters. It’s one of many games that I had a hard time stop­ping play­ing, as I just wanted to play a bit more, and then a bit more still. I liked the com­bi­na­tion of stealth and FPS ac­tion. I love soc­cer, and I played in a mi­nor league un­til re­cently. FIFA [5] is a per­fect game to bring out when friends come over, or to play with your kids. My six-year-old son asked if the World Cup games we watch on tele­vi­sion are real soc­cer or FIFA. That is how far the se­ries has come.
