I recently discovered Mount & Blade Warband ... I don't know how I missed that one but it's awesome. I can't describe why it's so immersive but I can lose myself in it so easily, it's really scary. The feeling of the fights is just wow. It's like watching a fighting scene from a medieval movie except that I'm doing the fighting myself.
Personally, I'm hoping at least one of the two is more enjoyable than MnB:W (can't bring myself to give a crap about singleplayer, and while multiplayer _can_ feel very fun, it usually doesn't, at least for long).
