Games you got recently

A little over 400 days late and I finally decided to buy Skyrim.

One word: Overrated.

 

You know that there are people who really do enjoy the game, right?

By overrated I don't mean it's a bad game, don't get me wrong. I just think that people give it a bit too much praise and that I personally don't find it very interesting. But overrated does not mean bad or terrible, just that a lot of people seem to think it's the best game ever. And it's just my own opinion.

 

I guess the main reason is that Bethesda made Fallout 3 and I had such huge hopes for that game and it ended up being a very good game in of itself but it lacked a lot of things that I loved about Fallout 2 and as a sequel to Fallout 2, it was absolutely mediocre. Without mods, it's a terrible game and I just don't feel that if you have to mod a game to hell to even enjoy it, then it's not a good game.

Well, I dunno about that, although I will agree that mods do make it such a better game. Kind of like Skyrim. That's probably why Bethesda welcomes the mod community with such open arms. (Now, anyway)

Having played Fallout 2 extensively and just feeling it not only had better weapons but also much better and more mature content and it actually felt more open and more like an RPG and not just a linear story, Fallout 3 is and always will be a huge disappointment to me.

 

And I have zero interest in Skyrim because nothing about it really makes me feel like I have to play it. Sure, you have a huge open world to explore but other games offer that as well and more. I guess it's just a matter of taste.

One of my friends advised me to get a lot of mods. I think it would be fun if I could get one that adds all the CS:S weapons. There's no rule that says a game has to make sense.

 

Edit: I can't find a single mod that adds a modern or future gun. This might be a problem.

Fallout 2 is THE GAME for me. But I never expected Fallout 3 to be nowhere near it. I mean... Fallout 2 (and Fallout 1, but I prefer the second game) is almost a genre of it's own, and I think it is impossible to recreate in the 3D first person shooter type of game. Even using the same mechanics but slapping 3D advanced graphics would hurt it. Fallout 3 and especially Fallout:NV gave me exactly what I wanted. A FPS RPG in Fallout lore game, and that is really good in itself. But you can't recreate the feel the original Fallout games gave you. You can't expect that.

Every game could be a lot better. There isn't a single game I wouldn't think "This could be done better... and this could be improved..." while playing it.

And I'm not talking about the graphics or engine.

 

To stay on topic, I bought Solar 2 on Steam.

Just finished Spec Ops the Line and all I can say is o_O, I might never play another CoD game again.

Is that a good or bad thing?

 

I'd say it's a good thing. The whole game is about how modern military shooters are completely washing away the true horrors of war. I won't post spoilers but suffice to say one moment in particular was a massive middle finger to the AC-130 missions in practically every CoD game since Modern Warfare 1.

I'm not planning on playing this game, but what is the theme?

 

The horrors of war is the best way I can describe it without ruining the plot.

I'm not playing it so I don't care about having the plot ruined. If you want, you can private message me about it.

Spec Ops: The Line :D

 

However, I won't be playing this until I clear out my back catalog, or at least dwindling it down to below 10 games :P

I didn't like how linear Fallout 3 was. well, linear compared to Fallout 1 and 2. i felt like i was just following people around watching them advance the plot, and the fact that the majority of the game look place in the southeast side of D.C I felt like they weren't even trying with the main quest.

 

also Devil May Cry 3 and 4 and goddamn they're cuh-ray-zee.

Skyrim is good, so are the newer fallouts. The newer games are just not that immersing, I like Dishonored in 30 minute sprints, I love Mass Effect, but Mass Effect 2 and 3 are just piperun from one level to another. Dragon Age was great, Dragon Age 2 didn't ticle me in any good way. To be honest, there isn't one game released in 2012 I could say I liked. Maybe 2013 will bring us oldschool RPG lovers something to like, but I doubt it.
