I'm at about 5/6 hours now and it's still getting better. I've always been one for stealthy and open game play, and it just kinda throws you into a level saying "This is your target, have fun."

Skills just add another level of accessibility to the game too, I pretty much only use Blink at the minute for quick teleports. Amazing for navigation and works wonders in combat, teleport behind, assassinate, teleport above, drop kill, teleport to a rooftop and escape.
Bethesda and Arkane have definitely hit it on the head with this one, fresh new IP with a nice story and amazing setting.
The Witcher games may take a while to install.. they're not the smallest of games

Busy buying more games/series that I missed the first time round as wasn't sure if I'd like them.
Just added Borderlands, Psychonauts, Stalker: SOC and Stalker:COP to the list of steam games that I'll probably play for 5 minutes then never again
Those flash sale deals are just too good to pass up though!

The Witcher 1 doesn't require a massive spec - so long as you turn off all the daft grass effects. Runs so much smoother once you don't have fields of polygons waving at you.

@flyinghaggis: Stalker SoC is incredible, make sure you install either the Complete Mod or LURK though - the former pretties it up and polishes it, whereas the latter does the same but adds in a bit more stealth, a few missing monsters & a lot more terror. I played it through with the latter and it was literally awesome*. (You can only have one though - each is designed to be an all-in-one monster mod)
Only got Arkham City & Driver: SF so far, I think that 178 games on my Steam list is plenty already given that 150 of those probably haven't been played properly yet...
*not an abuse of literally. I genuinely mean that it filled me with awe.

You don't want to know how many I've bought so far...

Cheers for the heads up. I've spent a few hours playing stalker and it's really good fun. Even for a 6 year old game the graphics surprisingly don't look too bad but looks pretty slick with the mod.
