What games are you playing now?

I just finished Alpha Protocol. The interesting thing, however, is not that I finished it but that I'm actually going to start over again. The truth is that there is nothing good I can say about that game without finding something equally, or more, bad to balance it out. Good ideas are followed by terrible execution, well executed aspects are left half baked etc… Still somewhere within all that terrible mess I found much more entertainment than frustration - which gives me another little reason to believe that games should be judged as more than a sum of features.
By the way (maybe a slight spoiler for those that are playing)
I decided to go with as little kills as it would be reasonably convenient - plus no executions at all. The one person however I really -really- wanted to just shoot dead and damn the consequences, was Marburg. But the first time I fought him the game didn't give me the option - he was -the only 'boss'- that just got away… and the second time… he decided not to fight me! He just turned his back on me and walked away… and I just wanted the game to allow me to just shoot him in the back even if that meant letting the real bad guy get away… but no, Alpha Protocol had to keep on frustrating me to the last minute.
