Games you aren't the hugest fan of, but still play/want to play anyway

Here's mine
  • Dark Souls (didn't like it but I still want to play it for some reason)
  • Two Worlds 1 (II is fucking awesome though)
  • Alpha Protocol
  • Left 4 Dead 2

-Aliens vs. Predator (hell of a lot better than Colonial Marines, but still not that great of a game)
-Bulletstorm (the controls are pretty awkward for an FPS game, takes a little getting used to)
-EDF: Insect Armageddon (beat 2017, but hardly touched this game)
-Red Faction: Armageddon (Guerilla was better, this game's linearity made it difficult to get into)

Red faction armageddon. I knew next to nothing about the red faction series but i picked it up because it was a THQ game (only because they went under) i only played it because it seemed like fun and it was but it felt meh to me.

Halo, i was never a fan of it i just play it because hey its another shooter that isent COD.

Prototype 2, picked it up on a whim and it never did anything for me after i got the 1k on it.

I'm leaning towards that one. Played the original back in college, lost a lot of valuable study time to it

Also Saints Row 4, picked up SR3 on a whim, it was fun but nothing spectacular, so hoping 4 is at least a fun romp.

Two Worlds 2 is awesome, and I will be playing it again soon. Dlc was impressive too.

Halo. I have not played a single Halo game since owning my Xbox and feel that I should make an effort to get cracking with it.

Far Cry. I have only played Far Cry 3, and I spent hours on it, and was my favourite retail game from last year. Wouldn't mind picking up the other 2 and seeing what they are like. Maybe even give Blood Dragon a whirl.

Apart from them, nothing else springs to mind.

Call of Duty

The franchise is so over rated and very unrealistic. It takes no skill or strategy to play hence why i despise the franchise. 3 shots to the chest doesnt kill enemies but a knife to the pinky toe is an instant kill. However, as much as i hate the franchise i will play it with my friends and for the achievements.

Don't really no if I'm not a huge fan or not but I would really like to give the Far Cry series a shot. Heard Far Cry 3and Blood Dragon are great games. Just never gotten around to pick any of them up yet.

Blood Dragon is easily one of the best games this generation.

Diablo III for me, too. Not usually much into dungeon crawlers and farming for loot, but I thought I'd give this one a try.

Dark Souls (was too hard for me when I first played it, but would like to try again)
Really the only game I didn't like too much, and that was just based on the difficulty of it.

I agree with this statement entirely. I'm so sick of CoD and all the fanboys that comes with the series. However I have friends that want to play so I play. Usually it's for the zombies. Can't stand multiplayer anymore

Oh my gosh the World is ending. FINALLY A GAME WE AGREE ON Gackt. :0


Ontopic hands down

Left 4 Dead 2

Overall its a step backwards compared to the first. I didn't like the characters compared to me LOVING The first game's characters. I just felt Coach,Rochelle,Nick,and Ellis were so generic and boring. When one talked I would be like SHUT UP PLEASE. The campaighns were no longer creepy and campaigns like Hard Rain were so annoying. The melee combat was meh,still no story as to how and why the outbreak happened.

But most of my friends play this more then the first so I guess thats why I play it.

I urge you, and everyone else who mentioned Dark Souls, to stick with it and push through the difficulty. When you get a feel for the game and get past the very steep learning curve, it gets better. Trust me. There are so many unique mechanics and enemies in this game that is making it one of the greatest gaming experiences of my life, but you really must put effort into it to get the reward out of it.

On topic, as many times as I played GTA IV, attempted to enjoy it, rebought it on more than one occassion, I can't get past the fact that I hate it. But for whatever the reason I am still tempted to get it AGAIN every time I see it cheap at Gamestop or online thinking that maybe this time will be different and it suddenly will be good. Maybe it's all the hype around it part of me feels like I must like it as a gamer, sort of like Assassins Creed games, but I just can't enjoy them as much as I try, but the temptation to keep trying still lingers.

I tried Dark Souls, I know when to admit defeat. I couldn't even get out of the asylum at the start!

I wanted to try Blacklist, but I just can't get into it. There's no tutorial to speak of, the game instantly throws you into some terrorist attack with hardly any introduction at all, the controls are odd (clicking to reload is hardly intuitive). And the game could really use a 'previously on Splinter Cell' bit, as I have zero clue about any of the characters, but the game seem to expect you to know who they all are.

Definitely Dark Souls for me. First time I played it I was not able to get past Undead Burg. After alot of hours of constant deaths I just gave up. I would really love to get back into it though.

Play the first one, but for the love of God skip part two. While it looks good, it's downright horrible in execution, plus the glitches, my god, I once had my car swallowed by the fucking ground, in the middle of no where. I had to walk so far in game I nearly shut the damn thing off. Not worth a moment of your time.
