I'm on GW2 and I'm having fun, and I'm not forced to play as much as I can because there is basically no commitment, nothing is forcing you to play and you have nothing to lose, and for what the game cost and how much I've played it, I think if I stop playing it right now and never play again (I won't, obviously), then it was well worth it in the end.
I know I'm having a ton of fun, experimenting with the crafting system to find new recipes is something I always wanted to do, I make Jewellery and food, strawberry cookies, chocolate bananas, pear tarts... feels good.
I played and finished Borderlands 2 a while back shortly after it came out, and I don't know why but I had a great feeling about it compared to the previous opus, and I was right.
And having played Borderlands 1 I can definitely say that it's a total improvement, everything feels better in this game, the storyline, the living characters, the gameplay, customization, the weapons that actually feel like they're doing some damage, the maps (at the end of the game you go back to the Badlands, the starting area from the first game, and it's awesome how it evolved), the game is smooth as hell and very responsive imo, I didn't run into any bugs or glitches, and it has everything a PC game needs, all the options and keybindings you can think of really.
To me, definitely game of the year. And it took me three or four tries to actually finish the first game, but this one, I didn't see the time pass.
Also played and finished Dishonored, I had high hopes for it, it turned out it was just a big pile of confused shite. So that's how the game made me feel.
Dishonored is steampunk - Sure, let's make sure you take as much from Bioshock as you can and cover it up saying it's all inspired by Half Life 2 because HL2's visual director worked on your game.
Also, a human heart with mechanical parts, OMG so steampunk.
Dishonored is stealthy - Yeah, so stealthy that everything happens in daytime and you wonder how all those supposedly trained idiots can't see you.
Dishonored allows you to not kill anyone - Sure, if you can REALLY be bothered, knowing it won't reward you at all and the two whole endings will not be affected, but still if you want to be bothered you'll have to stack sleeping bolts that you can't upgrade and use your bare hands while sneaking behind those morons, because all the rest of the game is made for you to kill, pistol, sword, grenade, bomb, bolts, incendiary bolts... and I'm not even talking about the powers.
Dishonored involves you in its story and characters - Nope. Now that one was hilarious as hell, I mean I've played games where I didn't care about the characters or story because they weren't interesting, but in this game, it's just monumental how I couldn't give two buns about who lived and who died, the Empress died? Why should I care? Because the bland/dull/uninteresting character I'm playing knew her BEFORE the game started? LOL. Empires are bad anyway.
Also, when your writer is an arrogant prick who talks about how his character is better than Gordon Freeman, I mean I know stupid but this?
When it comes to silent characters, I'll take Freeman over that Corvo emo any day.
Yeah I had to rant because the game disappointed me from A to Z, there was absolutely nothing I could think of that I actually liked, and I always try to find the little good thing in everything, not this time.
I don't even care about the graphics, the art design or anything else, there is just nothing in this game, nothing, I forced myself to finish it so I could rage openly about it, and it's DONE!
Played and finished Jedi Outcast for the seventh time I think a few months ago, always fun.
Been playing the Walking Dead game since the first episode, and I'm not usually into point and click games because I feel detached from them, I like when games have point and click elements, but pure point and click, I'm just gonna bore myself to death.
So it's pretty much one of the few point and click games that I can't stop playing, I always have to finish each episode after it comes out, I used to be able to play one episode over a few days but now it's all in one run, it's just amazing, not sure what else to say, if I talk about how great character development is in this game, I'll start spoiling everything, so I'll stop there.
I think that's about it, I'm not going to go further back in time or I'll tell you about games I played years ago.
