Do we have an Official Video Games thread here?

Recommended Posts

If you're going to roll with New Vegas, I would highly recommend getting Fallout3: Game Of The Year Edition first, if you haven't played it already, and it can be had dirt cheap.

Maybe I'm biased because it's one of my favorite games of all time.

 

You can swtich from first to 3rd person mode in it as well, although I usually play it in first person mode. There is a lot of exploration, so you're not constantly fighting enemies/shooting all the time. Same goes for New Vegas, although some of the enemies are harder in Vegas.

 

Yeah, there not my style.  Too much walking around, exploring as you say.  I wanted something more action packed, which I recall from Fable but it was year ago.

 

Again, the example of games I like non-sports (which is all I play really) was God of War.  Someone told me I'd probably like a lot of the Comics Hero type games and someone else told me Tomb Raider is very similar to God of War, just not as much fighting.

 

I dunno...but those other games are not for me.

So, I got Dragons Age and New Vegas. Definitely not what I remember Fable being like and not like the God of War games. Don't like them. Make me nauseous and it's too little action and too many scenes and what not....pretty boring (no offense).

I need more action.

 

Yeah, Fallout is more geared toward exploration and discovery. The fun with those games is running around the world map and finding a building full of bad guys to waste, then scouring the place for loot. Skyrim is like that, too.

 

It sounds like you're wanting more of an action game with RPG elements (like character building) in it, which is tough since a lot of the good ones (Bioshock, Borderlands, etc.) are first-person only.

 

I don't have a PS3 so I've never played them, but you might check out the Uncharted games. I know they're third-person and action-oriented. They get pretty good reviews and the screenshots look nice. There may be some other PS3-exclusive games out there that might fit the bill as well, but I'm not familiar enough with the system to make suggestions.

 

The latest Tomb Raider game has quite a bit of action in it, too. As a matter of fact, the overabundance of gun-fighting sequences was what made me dislike that game, since it was such a departure from the other games in the series. The Tomb Raider franchise has historically been about puzzle-solving and exploration--which is what I loved about it--and the most recent one seemed like it was trying to emulate Call of Duty or something.

 

Does killing a sh*tload of zombies sound appealing? You might check out Dead Rising 2. I played the first one and had fun with it.

God of War has some puzzle solving elements to it...thats what I liked about.  I had to look up a walk through to get through a few sections because I couldnt figure out what order to do what or what or which door to go through first, etc.  And it was cool because you get stronger with more health, you get different magic, there is some loot finding elements and its like old school games where you clear levels...the character evolves.  And its more of like a 360 view where you can attack at all angles and the view is from like far above the character.

 

Zombie killing might be fun.  I'll try it out.  

 

Any experience with playing Comic Hero type games?

Not a whole lot, but everybody seems to like the Batman games (Arkham City and Arkham Asylum; those are definitely worth looking into) and there are at least a couple of Spiderman games out there that are supposed to be good, but I can't speak from experience on those.

You're the man Bomb Dirt!!!  Thats exactly the type of games I like.  Especially the first 2, Batman and Drakes fortune.

 

I think my buddy was right.  I like the cheesy Super Hero games type.

The only thing with Uncharted is that's not really an RPG-type of game, but they are fun as hell, and third person view.

I loved the Tomb Raider remake, that game does allow for unlockables and upgradeables for your weapons and so forth. 

Game is great looking on the PS3 as well, and of course, staring at Lara's hooters is a nice perk. 

 

Regarding Fallout 3 & Vegas....well you certainly won't have to walk very far or explore for long without running into something to shoot.

Each kill gives you XP in which to unlock other perks,

 

I don't know if I've posted this, but Conan's Clueless Gamer series is hysterical, he's done quite a bit of them, here is his from Tomb Raider

Been playing Inquisition. I take it it's one of those games that's boring until you level up your team after 10 hours?

 

i've been playing it as well, the problem is I keep getting distracted by Destiny.

It's the game I love to hate.

 

Leveling up is a major grind, the story leaves a lot to be desired,  but the gunplay is just so good.

I was warned that Destiny sucks.

There's a lot of people saying that. The problem is it never delivered on the sheer amount of hype that was created for the game.

I never had an XBox, so I never played a minute of Halo, so I guess this is what it was like.

 

The story falls flat and isn't engaging, it's not open-world as they made it out to be, missions and enemies are repetetive. 

My only major beef at the moment is the endless grind to takes to acquire certain things to upgrade to the next level.

 

On the plus side the worlds and environments look gorgeous, the gunplay is fast and responsive, and multiplayer is sh*tloads of fun.

Overall it's pretty solid, just not worth a day 1 purchase I think.
