It's October! A time of turning leaves and too much candy, when the crisp fall air makes it easier to stay in and play video games, and the flood of new games means there's always something to play.

What are you playing this October? We're just beginning the real deluge, and I'm curious which games have captured your gaming time and which ones haven't quite earned it yet.

For my part, I've still been playing a fair bit of Destiny (we're almost done with the raid!) and I recently wrapped Alien: Isolation (review will be up on Friday morning). Just the past few days, however, the bulk of my free time has been spent playing Shadow of Mordor. I was excited for that game after reading Yannick's favorable (and very enjoyable) review, and so far it has exceeded my already high expectations.

Okay, your turn: Here at the start of October, what have you been playing? Sound off below.
