Over the past year, I have been using computer games to great effect in my german learning efforts. The games that I have been using have been all the Gothic games and I have just completed Risen (auf Deutsch naturlich). All these games are great for language learning in that there is lots of spoken dialouge, with subtitles, and the games themselves are hugely immersive and enjoyable (even G3 with the 1.73 CP patch was a pretty solid game). Combining learning with having lots of fun seems to me to be the only sensible way to learn a language (an otherwise boring as hell process), therefore, I am on the look-out for other good games with lots of spoken dialogue in them. The following games are defo off the list, as they are boring as hell (and own retails copies of two of them already...unfortunately): Mass Effect Oblivion Far Cry 2 And of course RPG's like STALKER are no good because all the communication is written, as oppossed to being voice acted.
