Lightweight gaming.

I want some computer games that have high replayability, are relatively cheap (0-20$ CAD/USD), NOT need a CD to play, and most importantly, take up as little hard-drive space and processor power as possible. Possible examples including good pieces of IF (especially mystery, who-killed-X ones), Fallout 2, Rogue-likes, games of the lightweight Boomshine/Peggle/Bejweled group, any RTS or turn-based strategy games, and anything by Nifflas. I'd love blogs that recommend good games, too. Any recommendations? [more inside]

Can you recommend some good, lesser known XBOX 360 games?

I've been keeping track of pretty much all the xbox 360 games out there, but i am sure i missed some great games. So, can you recommend some games that are lesser known? Also, games that got poor or average reviews, but are actually fun to play?

Co-op shooters/FPSes?

My sister loves playing co-op shooters. Can you recommend any? Our systems are the PS2, and a PC running Windows XP that was middle-of-the-road 3-5 years ago (so no Army of Two, thank you). Freeware/shareware/indie are great, but so are huge blockbusters. It just needs to have as long, good, co-op section.

Can I read my way out of Halo mediocrity?

I've played each game in the Halo series, and am a competent online player, but far from skilled (in Halo 3, I'd say I'm a skill rank of ~15). I'd like, though, to be better. Obviously, getting better is primarily a function of playing more. But what's beyond that - more to the point, plenty is out there, what's quality? I'm wondering about tips, methods/innovations, instructional videos or documents that are worth the look, etc. [more inside]

Stereotypical Girl Gamer

My apologies in advance for furthering the stereotype. I'm a girl, I like video games, but I lean towards puzzles games & sims... & my skills suck. My boyfriend is a video game collector & fairly avid player, as it is, his interest in types of games & his skill level are a fair bit different than my own. We recently got a PS3 & I'd like to expand the library by adding a few new games for myself (I'm looking for older stuff preferably: PS2 or even PS1 games). I like to play, but often have trouble finding games... so here I am turning to the MetaFilter Suggestion Engine. [more inside]

HDTV + Xbox 360 quality (antialiasing?)

Specifically, there seems to be far less antialiasing going on than I'd expect; "jaggies" are obvious from across the room. The 360 is connected to the TV via HDMI, and the 360 is outputting 720p.
