If I thought last month was productive, then May was even better. Thanks to a pair of three-day weekends I managed to get plenty of games completed this month. First up was Singularity, which took me about 8 hours to complete. Itís a good game but itís kind of showing up now a lot of tropes which I'm starting to get tired of (audio logs, seeing ďghostsĒ or flashbacks, silent protagonists) but I did like the combat and the time manipulation device meant there was some fun and experimentation involved. The aesthetic was a little bit different but still fell into those videogame settings; labs, factories, sewers and so on. Still if you see it in the Steam Summer Sale for a few bucks, definitely check it out.
I didn't get RDR when it came out as I was in the process of leaving Australia, so I didn't buy any console games at the time of release. Then when I was back in the UK, I procrastinated as I wished in vain for a PC release. I finally bought the complete Read Dead Redemption a few months ago and started playing it last weekend. Should I complete it this month?
So thereís your 5 choices; I think with the scale of some of these games, Iíll be struggling to fit in more than one in a month, so please only vote for 1 game. Feel free to comment on all the games but itíll make things much easier if you just say ďYes, play xxx as itís awesomeĒ. Leave your vote in the comments and Iíll announce a winner on Tuesday night.

About Alasdair Duncanone of us since 9:17 AM on 10.13.2007
Alasdair Duncan is that bearded, bespectacled Scotsman that covers PC gaming that is not Fraser Brown. A long time Destructoid community member and forum moderator, he covers adventure, puzzle, FPS and all kinds of games on the PC. Watch, as he adds more games to his Steam library with only the vaguest hope of ever playing most of his games.
Alasdair has been gaming since his mother bought a Commodore 64 back in the early 1980's. He adores Deus Ex, GTA Vice City, Team Fortress 2, Borderlands, Super Mario Brothers 3 and all those weird indie titles on Steam.
You can meet Alasdair at places like PAX where he tries to convince people he isn't a) drunk or b) Irish.
