Uncharted 2 and I don't regret it at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Around the Network

crysis 2. gosh was i disappointed.



The new SimCity.... DAMN i hate this game!



When you think my english is bad...sorry for my bad english,    i'm from Germany. And yeees, sorry, that we've almost destroyed the whole world, blahblahblah

Assassins Creed 3, ended up regretting it because the game was very mediocre.
LA Noire, I enjoyed it.
Modern Warfare 3, terrible game. Wasted 60$ on it.



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Borderlands
LA Noire


ALthough Borderlands 2 is pretty great. BL1 was terrible.



Around the Network

Beyond two souls - Don't regret

GTAV - kinda regret

Last of us - Don't regret (regret buying the season pass though)



Yes, a few, biggest regrets are:

Super Mario Brothers Wii - had other games I would have rather played and found it frustrating. I was into other games at the time, so didn't really play it that much.

Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii- just couldn't get into an SD game on my new TV. The awkward icons as were frustrating and fuzzy. Plus no voice overs. And found it repetitive - would rather play Warcraft for the same but a more fulfilling experience. It was the purchase that convinced me I should get an HD Console so I started listing the pros and cons of PS3/X360.

Although, I got it in a pack, and kept and liked me Pro Controller for a few games on my Wii.

Others I really enjoyed:

Halo: Reach. Took me a while to get good enough to enjoy the game. Some fantastic battles, sneaky smart AI, and nothing being static. If you walk far enough towards that spaceship flying in the distance it will notice you and attack you.

Elder Scrolls: Skyrim. I had not played the others, nor really a true open world game on a modern console. First thing I did was get chased by a dragon, then see something way in the distance and decide to find a way to walk to it. I got killed a few times, but really like the new freedom. Got me hooked. (Even-though some of the game play is similar to Monster Hunter, to me there was also so much more to do. )



 

Really not sure I see any point of Consol over PC's since Kinect, Wii and other alternative ways to play have been abandoned. 

Top 50 'most fun' game list coming soon!

 

Tell me a funny joke!

yeah when reviews said what a smart FPS it was and how open it was I tried it out and traded it in after slogging through the campaign.

Dragons don't unlock until you're fairly far into the story unless you're talking about the opening scripted sequence.
