Spent most of my time playing the original port on the Genesis and Revenge of Death Adder in the arcades. They're pretty fun beat 'em up for time but I think Revenge of Death Adder was the best one by quite a margin. Shame it never got a console port.

There are plenty of games that are better than Half Life now, but those games are better because of Half Life.
What this guy said. It might not be your cup of tea, but Half-Life is a well designed and especially influential game.
I'll keep any eye on this. Metal Gear has had a lot of good spin-offs without Kojima (Ghost Babel, AC!D, Revengeance), so it could end up good.
But... it will probably be riddled with microtransactions. So there's that.
Neither right now as I'm too busy with school and my back log but I'll definitely be getting Wolfenstein down the line. Nothing beats a solid single player first person shooter for me and Machine Games has the talent to deliver exactly what I want from shooters.
AC Origins looks absolutely gorgeous but I'm not feeling some of the systems and mechanics. It's basically an action RPG now. Granted I haven't thoroughly played an AC since III as the series kept moving away from the core that made me love AC1 so much. I'll probably end up playing Unity or Black Flag before I play Origins.
I'm sorry, but that's billshit.
The original Dragon Age was supposed to be a multiplayer-focused toolset for creating adventures, like Neverwinter Nights.
It only became singleplayer-focused and linear after EA bought them and pushed for console releases.
Got a source for that? Not doubting you, just genuinely curious as I really enjoyed NWN multiplayer. Would have been interesting too see how they would have expanded upon it.
I don't know about any particular skills but video games did start my life long passion of history and I'll be graduating next year with my History degree. After 12 year old me played Medal Of Honor: Allied Assault for the first time, I voraciously consumed any history books I could get my hands on.
I don't understand why so many were clamoring for a campaign for Battlefront.
People acted like act Pandemic's BF and BF2 had some sort of great singleplayer. It was literally multiplayer maps with bots stringed together and this doesn't look too far from that. The draw of these games it the multiplayer chaos set in a Star Wars setting.
I plunked in (probably) thousands of hours just roaming around the Rest Outpost worlds of Far Cry 3 and 4. Don't ask why. There's no campaign. No story. No leveling up because my characters are already maxed and everything is unlocked. The flip side is all the restrictions in the campaign were removed. I just love dropping me into the world and causing mayhem. I never tire of it. Once I cleared all outposts and fortresses, I simply reset outposts and do it again. ;)
Just recently started playing Far Cry 4 and I'm really enjoying the freedom to approach the game as I please.
