So I know we've all hit this fork in the road many times where we're either all out of ideas, or maybe our backlog just doesn't hold enough to keep our interest.
Nevertheless, I figured I'd make a thread to offer more general appeal; get some conversation going, and maybe get us to play some games we otherwise wouldn't.
Take my current situation as an example:
As of the last 72 hours, I'd completed both Diablo III and Silent Hill: Homecoming. Since I am struggling to figure out what to play (recently unemployed), I picked up Metro 2033 -- but it's just not doing it for me. I'd start FFXIII or some random JRPG, but I feel as though it's "just too much right now". What would you suggest for someone in my situation?
To make things easier, and possibly develop a greater variety, feel free to post both a retail and an XBLA game.
