Re: What Video Game are you Currently Playing?

Just tried World of Tanks. I really don't know what to say about this one. I would draw a comparison to another game I've played, but there's not really any other game like it.

It's now free-to-play, so it's definitely worth a try.


Your curiosity will be the death of you....

Re: What Video Game are you Currently Playing?

Skyrim - One of the best looking games I've ever played at least as good as Fallout 3/ New Vegas.

Is it fair to compare the games. Yes, Bethesda has made the game play very similar. Open map, fast travel, non linear and quest driven. But the game map is easily twice the size in skyrim and has way more customization and item variability.
Plus you can ride horses. No more foot slogging unless you want too.

Skyrim is a coming of age story but so was Fallout 3. After all you are chasing your father down after leaving you childhood home (Vault). You can also affect the world by being bad or good in both games drastically changing the outcome of the fallout games and presumably with skyrim as well.

I think of skyrim as more of an evolution of the Elder scroll / Fallout games. I think Fallout 4 will look and play more like skyrim.

One of my friends confused Skyrim with Skylanders.

I have one less friend.

Re: What Video Game are you Currently Playing?

This isn't the typical question for this, but I'm currently playing Oblivion (can't afford Skyrim right now). I like it, but it's "meh".

What awesome older games for the 360 would people recommend? I need something good, and just finished Deus Ex recently (it's the only game I've bought new in months).

The cake is a lie.

Need more info. What kinds of games do you like? Want heavy story RPG shooter? Try the Mass Effect series.

Want open world? Try Red Dead Redemption, more story to it than Oblivion and better overall gameplay mechanics, but still very wide open.

Need an idea though really, of what types of games you like.

I loved Mass Effect 1 and 2. Red Dead is good, but not totally my style. Loved Deus Ex. I loved the Assassin's Creed series. Can't stand 1st person shooters with the exception of Deus Ex and Bioshock. I love RPG's, but I didn't like the linearity of Final Fantasy 13.

I guess I'm more of the action/RPG kind of guy.

Have you tried the Dead Space series? I highly recommend both of them, light RPG/3rd person shooter.

Both have interesting stories (ala Bioshock) - the first game is much more survival horror while the second is a bit more intense. Wonderful games with interesting RPG lite mechanics and combat where "where" you shoot is vitally important (and it's not headshots). First game is scarier, with more a Half-Life 2 feel (in that your character doesn't speak), while in the sequel, he's given a voice and the narrative is much stronger.
