Alan Wake — too much needless combat.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent — eerie shit, to be honest.
Anarchy Online — killed by the poisoned word potential.
ArcaniA (sic) – Gothic 4 — looks good, but that’s about it.
Arx Fatalis — Underworld 3 in all but name. Not as good as the Origin games.
Asheron’s Call 2 — R.I.P a game that I tried hard to like.
Assassin’s Creed 1 — interesting game, but I’m not a fan of the console theory that you can’t save at will.
Assassin’s Creed 2 — haven’t tried it yet.
Avadon: The Black Fortress — old school dungeon crawl. Hard to read text.

Dear Esther — non-interactive walkabout of a gloomy Scottish island, with occasional narrative. Strange.

Dragon Age 2 — more of the same, with more combat, less story.
Dreamfall: The Longest Journey — not as fresh as the Longest Journey. Why put combat in it?
Duke Nukem Forever — should’ve stayed Duke Nukem Never.
Dungeons and Dragons: Daggerdale — the game the word “generic” was invented for. In fact, it’s doing that word a disservice.
