Games I've been playing (PS2)

Shadow of the Colossus
The art, specifically the use of light.
The most hardcore horse ever.
Mostly interesting boss fights.

The bosses are a pain in the ass to find. I broke down and resorted to a strategy guide, because I got sick and tired of missing one turn and losing 15 minutes.I enjoy the pretty scenery a lot more when I'm not butt lost in it.
Randomly got clipped into grayspace a couple times, completely without trying.

Call of Duty III
Properly dramatic, with good orchestral music.
I doubt there is any target less sympathetic than the virtual nazi.
Ever what to stop for a minute and smell the roses? It's cool, your squadies can probably handle the objective without you.
Inhuman lead tolerance!
Playing a FPS on a PS2 controller is awkward as hell. My reaction speed was not at all what I would have liked, a problem when there is a room full of angry Germans. Especially if one gets right behind me and starts clubbing away, there is just about nothing I could do.
The germans, especially towards the end of the game, also benefit from the inhuman lead tolerance. It's disheartening to realize that 3 rounds from an SMG to the chest at 5 feet will not kill one.
Looking through the site on your gun? That is where the bullet will hit...50% of the time.

Currently Playing: Okami
Pros: Beautiful Japanese art inspired by traditional paintings.
The magic paint brush mechanic is interesting.
The mythology is, so far as I know, well researched.
Solid mechanics, inventory, etc.
Every magical or female character has all of their dialogue accompanied by a high pitiched sound that is quite annoying to listen to. Since you have a spirit bug as your primary companion, this is most of it.
Having done calligraphy, having to watch myself mess up horribly trying to do it with a damn joystick is torturous.
Sometimes uncertain where to go next, or whether there is more stuff to do in the current area.
