StarFox and StarFox 64 were two I only played for the first time a few months ago, and they were really good. I generally didn't play those kinds of games back in the day, and then after that I just kept forgetting to buy them. Really glad I finally got around to it.

I'm almost at 130 hours in Oblivion and I'm so, so glad I finally played it, even though it's played havoc with my sleep schedule (and I can't imagine when the hell I ever would have otherwise had the time to give it the attention it deserves). I played a 15-hour straight run the other day just because I had nowhere to go and nothing better to do. It was glorious.

I'm having so much fun with it that I went ahead and ordered "Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind - Game of the Year Edition"; I played a chunk of the "vanilla" version a few years back but got distracted, and then came back to it totally lost and gave up on it, but I did enjoy the general experience. I'm aware the Quest Journal is still a broken mess in that version but I might push through it just to experience the actual gameplay. I still have the regular version but if I do play it again I figure it may as well be the "full" version, so it seemed like a reasonable purchase.

I do regret being so "late" to the party on Elder Scrolls, but then again, as I've said I can't for the life of me figure out when there ever would have been a "better" time. These games are definitely a massive time-sink. I love it, but if you're like me and prefer to play in big chunks that can be a problem, if you have designs on pesky things like "going to bed before noon" or "waking up before 7pm" or "doing anything else at all besides play Elder Scrolls."
