Lately I've been playing Gothic and Assassin's Creed II (on 360).
I started out utterly hating Gothic, but the game has grown on me now that I can actually kill things. Its combat system is quite wonky, but is manageable once you've gotten the hang of it. As of right now, I'm about to finish chapter 1 and join the Old Camp. A bit cliche, I know, but I'm not fond of either the New Camp or the Sect Camp. One sounds too lax and the other sounds bats**t crazy.
I'm surprised thus far with Assassin's Creed II. I wasn't a huge fan of the first one, and thus dragged my feet on the sequels. I've been told repeatedly that the second one was awesome and that I should definitely pick it up. So far, I'm not regretting it like I regretted playing the first one. There's more variety this time around, and the combat system is vastly improved.
My only complaint so far is that some of the missions I've encountered were quite boring. Then again, I'm still pretty early in the campaign.
