Roosky Plays... Dirt 3

Rally racing is awesome, especially at the World Rally Championship level. Tiny, lightweight, turbocharged AWD cars fly down dirt or gravel or snow-covered roads at 120MPH, feet (sometimes inches) away from trees or rocks or stone walls. It's a blast to watch. I follow the WRC regularly,so you'd think that I'd be super excited to play DiRT 3.

Completed: Titan Quest

I knew the Roosky Plays Games project was ambitious, especially after implementing the stats block and figuring out that if I played games 20 hours a week, every week, I would just be completing my current catalog in about 16 years. The first few games of the project were a little discouraging, only because they weren’t the games I started the project for. See, my catalog is full of games that I didn’t purchase specifically but got as part of a bundle. There are also a lot of very casual games. The first couple that I started playing -- Anodyne and Fractal -- were definitely in that group. I expected this, but also hoped to find some hidden gems. Titan Quest happily fits in the latter category.
