The gaming world has exploded.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is here; lines have been out the door at most every GameStop around the country, midnight launch parties kicked off last night, and millions are playing Infinity Ward's hot new game right now.

But if you're not interested at all, what are you playing this week? I think it's important to remember that there are other gamers out there, and not everyone was clamoring to get their hands on Activision's latest billion-dollar product. So maybe you were one of those people who were standing in line for another reason; maybe you were actually there to buy Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten , just to thumb your nose at the gathering, dazed masses who will buy anything with "Call of Duty" in the title.

Disclaimer: I'm not implying that everyone who bought MW3 is a dazed sheep; I'm saying some people – those who might make a statement by purchasing Disgaea on November 8 – might think that.

So if you're not one of those who have the new CoD in your console right now, we want to know: what are you playing this week? Finishing up Batman: Arkham City ? Still enjoying Battlefield 3 ? Anxiously awaiting The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim ? Still catching up on a backlog that includes games like L.A. Noire , Portal 2 , and LittleBigPlanet 2 ? Let us know.

Well since you ask…

I've been enjoying some classic games lately. Still playing some old school GTAs, mostly Vice City and San Andreas. In addition to those, I found copies of Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit and Colin McRae Rally at the local Goodwill, and have been having fun doing some lo-res racing.

I started Twilight Princess till Skyrim and to see if I would like Skyward.

Can't believe I had skipped it haha it's pretty nice. Only sad thing is that it looks like crap on my 46 inch XD still didn't stop me from playing 30hrs in 4 days. So much to do in that game ๐Ÿ˜€

Out of my collection of 30+ games, on my "at-the-moment playing" list :D, I am playing:

-Arkham City
-Halo Reach
-GTA IV: The Lost and the Damned (then afterwards, Ballad of Gay Tony ๐Ÿ˜‰
-Resistance 3
-Deus Ex: The Missing Link
-Gears 3
-Battlefield 3

A bit lower down the list, I occasionally dive into Killzone 3 (Captain! But not General yet like in Killzone 2..), AC: Brotherhood, and Fallout 3, to name a (and very) few.

I try my best to make time, despite University ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope everyone is doing Batman or Uncharted 3 if they're not doing MW3. I finished U3 last night. It was an extremely awesome experience. It just kept getting better and better. So while I was tempted to start a second play through, I decided to wait on that for when I actually own the game. Plus, I've been eagerly awaiting MW3. Yes, eager for it's campaign with all of it's exciting crazy destruction and 60fps action. I've thoroughly enjoyed the first two MW campaigns, and the strong reviews for MW3 suggest I'll get more of exactly what I want. A sigh of releif because I didn't know what to expect with this reformed IW. It would seem the franchise is still in good hands.

I'm just the Crushing trophy away from Platinum. On chapter 10.

I may be tempted to go for 100% on U3 as well. I haven't done an Uncharted on crushing before. I've done U2 on Hard. It wasn't all that bad. I actually think U3 was a bit easier than U2 it seems. I think I'm most concerned about having the patience to find all 100 artifacts. Id have 50 more to go as I found 50 of them during my first play through.

Use YouTube and just look for each piece by chapter. It tells you under the chapter select menu how many you are missing from each chapter. I have Platinumed all 3 Uncharted games. Well I will have once I complete 3 on Crushing.

When I have the time (which was only at 7 this morning, been working at school/going to class all day and just rapped up right now at like 10:40 P.M. so no time for Drake), I've been playing Uncharted 3 multiplayer after finishing campaign, and Hydrophobia since it was free for plus members. Some nice ideas but low production values, sloppy VA and passive story hold it back. But it is fun and engaging. just not the best game in the world.

I've been waiting for 7 years to play 'Snake Eater' at 60 frames per second, and a year and a half to 'properly' play 'Peace Walker' (as I'm still not accustomed to handheld gaming), so those will definitely be taking up my immediate gaming time. Everything else is going to have to wait.

Uncharted 3. Might do a little Cysis 2 if I have the time. I just put a digital copy of FFIX to my PSP. Wish I had done that before I decided to play half way through the second disk on my original copy.

Does anyone else think Elana is hotter in U3 than U2? And holy crap! the graphics are nuts on that game. They make U2 look kinda meh!

I've been playing Uncharted 3 mostly, but I put GT5 in tonight and hooked up my racing wheel. I couldn't get the wheel to work for nothing. I thought it just stopped functioning properly and after an hour of scratching my head, I realized I had the wrong adapter connected to it.

I still haven't completed ICO and Shadow of the Colossus, Battlefield 3 White Knight Chronicles 2, Enslaved and I've barely touched Saints Row 2. I have a lot to keep me occupied for a while.

I just finished Uncharted 3 tonight, but will be going back on Crushing for all the treasures/trophies. I've also got a 2nd run of Dark Souls on hold for more trophies and finally if time I'll go back to Battlefield 3. Oh and lets not forget AC Revelations is out next week (eff!).

Battlefield 3 on 360, Uncharted 3 on PS3, Donkey Kong Country Returns on Wii, Oblivian on PC. Just finished Batman Arkham City last week. Am looking forward to getting stuck into MW3 as soon as I get through Battlefield 3.

Oh, and am still studying between 6 and 7 hours a day for a uni test tomorrow.

That answer your question?

Been playing Hunted:The Demons Forge where I've been stuck on the last big boss for over a week now.
So I took a break from it & played some of this months free PS+ game, Hydrophobia Prophecy.

And I've also been playing some of Homefront's SP campaign.

I love both of them too, especially the whole concept & storyline of Homefront so far, but it's really been pissing me off big-time cause it's froze my Slim up at 8 different spots in the campaign already.
(***Possible spoiler alert ahead ***)

And I have a hard enough frigging time piloting a helicopter without it freezing in 3 different places of me trying to fly, maneuver, and run & gun, all while protecting my now-hijacked tanker convey while while throwing chaff at the SAMS streaking across the sky at me.

I wish THQ hadn't disbanded Kaos, just so they could patch it, Damn it!

I'm playing Uncharted 3 multilayer. This is my first multilayer experience, so I'm just playing Free for All, until I gain enough experience and friends(none of my actual friends own a console, as console gaming is in its infancy in my country). I also plan on importing MGS collection soon. I already have the PS2 Essential collection, but only played MGS1 and MGS2 on it, so plan to play MGS3 and PW on the PS3.
