Just finished Legend of Grimrock (Hard / Old School). I took my time and have to say that the game is wonderful. My first pre-ordered game and indeed it was worth the risk.
I've just finished Bastion for the first time. Fantastic game, though I like the beginning more than the end.

Finished so far:

Half-Life: Blue Shift
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
The Shivah
Gemini Rue
Men of War: Vietnam. While this game has criticized for being too hard, I actually found it to be considerably easier than Faces of War (which was not criticized nearly as much), another game in the same series, that utilizes nigh identical mechanics. Heck, I could not finish Faces of War.
There were two campaigns in Men of War: Vietnam, one following two Soviet military advisers & two NVA soldiers, and the other following 6 US soldiers. It would have been nice to see something from the ARVN's perspective as well, though sadly there were no missions focused around them. Overall I found the NVA campaign to be more fun, as it relied more heavily on stealth, rather than brute force.
Also, it was nice to see a game of this type not set during WW2.
Full list:

9. Carmageddon 2: Carpocalypse Now (1998) (PC, 8.6.2012, 9/10)

Played it through on hard difficulty. Damn the last mission was hard! I think I replayed it about 150 times before finally finishing it on time (4min 40sec on Hard), 2 seconds to spare. You really couldn't afford any mistakes there.

While most of the missions were quite hard, what kept me going was that you did feel like you were making progress with the retries, slowly getting closer and closer to the goal.

Overall, it left a pretty good taste to mouth. Maybe I should invest on that kickstarter, and in the mean time check out Carmageddon 3: TDR 2000 + The Nosebleed Pack, whether it is any good (waiting in the cupboard).

I just Warlock: Master of the Arcane for the first time. And darn it, I want to do it again! Warlock: master of the arcane is a 4X game, focused mainly on the eXterminate part, and it is a really good one. While I doubt it has the longevity of a Civ title, it sure as heck has the addictiveness and the "only one more turn" factor.

I played it & thought it was a solid game for what it was. That being said, I really don't understand why it is put on such a pedestal... It seemed like your average Action Adventure game just with really crappy camera controls & less than stellar voice acting. I also wasn't necessarily a fan of the way it ended... in a way I guess it gave some closure, in another way it really didn't. Another thing I strongly disliked was the fact that I couldn't go back & get the single disc I missed because the elevator in the factory no longer worked... I felt that was a cheap thing to do to somebody looking to actually COMPLETE the game.... which I would have done had it not been for that (I.E. Got literally EVERYTHING else that the game had to offer). Another complaint that I had with the game was its overall glitchiness... the game locked up my 360 on at least 2 occasions & there were several times where Jade just feel off of ledges while sidling (often into programmer's hell). Last but not least on my list of complaints is the moronic A.I. Half the time your allies just stand around looking into space when you are needing them to help you complete a puzzle... sometimes you have to literally leave an area to actually get them to respond to you (which is needless & just bad programming).

After all of the complaints that I made, I'm sure you are wondering why I gave it a 7... well I loved collecting everything in the game for one. It was never too hard to figure out how to get all of the orbs & find all of the animals, M-Discs (minus the one) & Life Upgrades... yet it never became monotonous either. I also thought the story was halfway decent & besides the few boneheaded statements by Jade & Her Allies the dialogue was decent as well. The controls were mostly fluid (minus in the airship) & were easy to learn.

The game was most certainly worth the $5 I payed for it & don't really regret the purchase at all. RECOMMENDED
Legend of Grimrock

Fun little throwback that made me nostalgic for an era in gaming I never actually experienced. I got the Steam version for the cheevments; sue me.
Just finished Half-Life 2 for the second time. Great game. I got some achievements I didn't get on my first playthrough, only 2 left now.

Edit: also finished Limbo. It's a... special game, but still nice.

Finished so far:

Half-Life: Blue Shift
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
The Shivah
Gemini Rue
Half-Life 2

King Arthur: The roleplaying wargame: This was in fact my 3rd attempt to beat the game, and I don't know if they have balanced it a lot better since last time, or if I was just a lot better at it, but I found it considerably easier, and with less difficulty spikes than last time. Playing with the weaker archer option on also made it a lot better balanced in terms of what units are worth using (on release archers was so overpowered that you had no real reason to use anything else, which was a real shame, as there are some pretty cool units in the game). Also, the old faith might have had more powerful units than the forces of Christianity (last two times I went with Christianity, as they had cooler units, but this time I decided to try something different)
Steam is also quite keen on reminding me that I've spent a lot of time in front of my computer since I did my last exam for the summer, so now I guess I should go out and get some fresh air.

*edit* Complete list of finished games for this year:

hard as fook, yet somewhat enjoyable yet anime
I have no earthly idea why I would want to see a random list of games posted by anyone. Isn't this thread for commenting on games you just finished?

Anyway, I recently completed Curse of Monkey Island, which is still one of the best point and click adventure games ever made.
It's a fairly entertaining retro platformer, not too easy not too hard. It's really short too, it took me a little over 2 hours to find all keys and visit every room in the map. The riddles you have to answer after finding each key were funny (there is a running gag of one of the possible answers being "delicious human flesh").
