When I have time for games, I've mostly been playing my Wii or PS3.

If you have a Wii, check out Epic Mickey. The controls aren't that great, but it is a beautiful game and nice to see Mickey in a game too!

I watch my daughter play Epic Mickey - I like it a lot! \\
Playing Pirates some, but mostly on a lowly level 6 with granddaughter.

FB - citiville and frontierville are pretty much it.

I would also be interested in Lord of the Rings discussion, Star. Is it expensive?

We have a copy of WOW, but we've never even installed it. I loved all the old Warcraft games though

In between painting custom vinyl commissions I'm either watching movies through netflix on the Wii or games on FB (most of which Critter is in trouble for getting me hooked on playing), aside from farmville I've been playing Me to you - my place, it has the cute tatty bear from carte blanche back home and some of his friends, that and the Majhong tiles game that has most of us bonkers stuck at one level LOL.

I recently decided to remove my payment from my WoW account so I cant play under my characters anymore, not because I don't like the game anymore but I just haven't found much time between painting and spending time with Fee to play, Fee however encouraged me to make a worgen on his account, so there's a boo wolf out there occasionally lol. they have been sending me 10-day trial offers for cataclysm for my account though, maybe once I get through my list back-orders I might be inclined to take up their offer

And of course I still play SL, mainly for mini adventures with Critter, who is a bad influence and innocent my eye as always

Back in September they added a free to play option. In theory you can play completely for free by completing "deeds" which give you points in their store (for example there is a deed to visit all the farms in the Shire). In reality that gets kind of tedious after a while but it's a real option. A free player only has quests up to about level 25 or so (the cap is 65 currently) then they can buy "quest packs" in the store for additional areas by using those points. The store also offers increased vault space (a place to stash things outside of the bags you always have with you), shared vault to pass items between characters, a wardrobe space to store outfit pieces, unlocking of more bag space, the riding skill to allow having a horse or pony or goat, and a number of other things that undo the limitations of playing free. It would be as if POTCO free players could spend a little money and unlock a ship larger than a sloop for sailing.

There's also the subscriber route which is $30 for 3 months and gives an allowance of store points each month (500, which is worth roughly $5). Subscribers don't have to pay for quests other than a couple of paid expansion areas that were added after the game launched. They have more bags than free players, free wardrobe space, and other nice to have features like more character slots to try different character classes.

Since it's free to create an account and play the only real hurdle is getting the game installed. At 9 or so gigabytes it takes a while to download.

I'll work on pulling some more info together and get a thread started.

Well I still haven't pulled the review together, but here's a rather savvy idea someone had for a video using the ability for characters to play musical instruments in LOTRO, including playing in sync with others:
