Another game I found recently is Knytt. It's free and I'd highly recommend it. A very pure and simple exploration-based platformer, I've seen it described as an "ambient game", which is very accurate, but hard to understand until you've played it. It has a wonderful tone and is great at evoking mood.
Also game related, my current personal best at Wii Sports bowling is 267.
EDIT - I forgot to put in a link to this article about the early history of computer RPGs, which I found pretty fascinating. I figure there may well be a few folk out there interested in this.
