I'm playing System Shock 2 ... and I LOVE IT :)
Started DX: The Fall yesterday. Actually liking it so far. Playing it on Android.
Right now I'm playing Crusader Kings 2 and Might and Magic 6.

Daedalus1138: Star Wars Dark Forces. I've had all the other games in the series for years, but I never purchased this one. However, watching my dad play through Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast inspired me to play the whole series, so I bought Dark Forces for five bucks and started playing. I went in fully aware that I might not be able to get into it, because try as I might I have a hard time with game pre-1997ish. However, after playing the first two levels, I was pleasantly surprised. It is old and looks it, but it has otherwise aged fairly well. It's got a nice Star Wars feel and the gameplay is simple in the funnest way. The story is decent, too. So far, my only complaint is that I can't play it for extended periods of time. This is a problem I have with many older first-person games: I just start to feel motion sickness. Otherwise, though, I'm greatly enjoying it.
I haven't played it in ages but I'm not surprised the game looks old but doesn't feel as terrible to look at as it should. Something about thinking of imperial facilities being drab and blocky makes the visuals just sort of "fit" and probably age a bit better than they wold have otherwise. And I remember LOVING the audio. Seriously to this day the sounds of blaster fire put a huge smile on my face.

And I'm playing The Witcher. Very fun, but man did I have a hard time last night trying to get by the Beast... I'll have to tackle that hound tonight.
After finishing Broken Sword 1 and 2 I recently started Broken Sword 5 - and I like it!

Yeah, the atmosphere in Dark Forces is great. It definitely makes up for the otherwise dated visuals. And I have to agree, the sound is awesome. The sound effects really help to draw you in and the music is top notch.

On another note, I am now playing Dark Forces II. I have so many stinking memories from this game. I love it. It's weird, too: I haven't played it in ages, but because I played it so many times when I was a kid, I instinctively remember where almost every enemy is, at least in the first couple of levels. There were a few times where I would be running down a hallway and as I passed a turn or a little niche, something would tell me to face it, and lo and behold I would see an enemy. Also, I don't care how cheesy they sometimes are, those cutscenes are the best.
Cossacks :3
I'm slowly working my way through The Raven as I play a little bit here and there. Haven't had much time to play anything since I just finished settling into the new place I moved some two weeks ago, and now I have to deal with some other life stuff, too. Anyway, I'm quite enjoying the game even with some of the mouth animation looking horribly freakish in certain instances - oh that lady Mary. *shudder* I like its score a lot. The opening intro was pretty damn cool, IMO. :) I've just gotten to start in Cairo in the second 'episode'. Definitely looking forward to playing more of it.
