Suggestions for fun games

Friends and I are planning on playing a game Super Replay style, with one person playing and the others having a bit of running commentary for the entire game.

Something that runs about 6 - 12 hours would be great, but the game above all else must be fun. Any genre is fine as long as it is not absurdly difficult.

We don't intend to 100% the game, but if the game is littered with easy to get achievements I will consider that a bonus.

I've played a number of games that are both long and fun, as well as have (mostly) easy achievements. You should give these games a spin:

-Borderlands 1 and 2
-Any Call of Duty
-Crackdown 1 and 2
-Crysis 2 (3 is fun, but short)
-Darksiders 1 and 2
-Dead Space 1, 2 and 3 (play in the dark!)
-Doom 1 and 2
-The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion and Skyrim
-Fallout 3
-Fallout: New Vegas
-Any F.E.A.R.
-Any Forza Motorsport (I recommend 4)
-Gears of War 1, 2 and 3
-Any Halo
-Just Cause 1 and 2
-Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
-The Mass Effect trilogy
-Minecraft
-Prototype 1 and 2
-Rage
-Red Dead Redemption
-Renegade Ops
-Sacred 2: Fallen Angel
-Saints Row 1, 2 and 3
-Torchlight

*whew!* Quite a selection, huh?

Im surprised Alan Wake isnt on that list, in my opinion, best game ever, great for commentary.

Any Halo game, Minecraft, or Fable 2. Those are games that I love.

Nah just kidding. I would say probably Far Cry 3 or maybe an older Halo game (not Reach or 4). You could also try Borderlands 1 (since 2 is pretty crappy) or Dead Space I don't know. What kind of games do you classify as fun?

Bah forget the above list, just play Dynasty Warriors

A super fun game is GTA4. If you haven't played it do yourself a favour and pic it up.

I second this. The game isn't hard, it's just that you aren't doing it right. Also a good game if you happen to go in the wrong direction.

Oh, and I guess Minecraft could work too. But Dark Souls first.
