Too Human

Poker's a funny game. One minute, I love it to death and can't get enough of it. Yet a scant few losing sessions later and poker is relegated to the back burner while I busy my time elsewhere.

I think that I play a lot more poker when I'm worried about money and/or a little better rested. I'm not rich at the moment. As for being tired...

So how have I been spending my time? I finished Fallout 3 a couple weeks ago so what other game could be anywhere near as addictive as a post-nuclear RPG? Two words: Too Human.

There are a few games that really stand out from the pack when I think of games that absolutely loved playing: Fallout (1 and 2), Diablo II (though the original Diablo was good too), the Final Fantasy series, Grand Theft Auto 3, and GTA: Vice City. Too Human's gameplay of fighting hordes of creatures and collecting loot feels a lot like Diablo II. Talk about an addictive game; it's all I can think about besides my wife, kids, and work. It's been a long while since I've felt so strongly about a game.

It's a shame that Too Human was unfairly pronounced D.O.A. by many review sites. I think that those who were quick to dismiss Too Human missed the true point of the game. If you've got an Xbox 360 and if you liked Diablo II, I highly recommend picking up a copy of Too Human for yourself. It's cheap, it's great fun, and it's an easy way to kill 100 hours of your life if you so choose.
