About once a year, I give in and decide to make a thread. It's about that time of the year, so......
Like the title says, what are the last three games you played and how would you rate/recommend them? 2017 has just begun and even though my backlog is bigger than ever and the list of games to pick up this year is going to be enormous, it'd still be fun to hear what everyone is playing and get some ideas about hidden (or not so hidden) gems we might have missed out on.
My last played -
1.) Currently playing Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (Wii) - Engrossing, creepy atmosphere. Good storyline. Incredible visuals and level design. Decent controls and gameplay. Second time through and it's just as good the second time. This entire trilogy is one of my gaming life highlights. Highly Recommended.
2.) Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number (PS4) - I've only had the desire or patience to platinum two games: this and Hotline Miami. I adore this game. Stylish, psychedelic visuals, captivating story, addictive gameplay, killer soundtrack. It's set in the late 80s/early 90s and you get to kill everything in sight. Recipe for success! Highly recommended.
3.) Startropics 2 (NES) - I had a long list of classic games that I never beat and this was one of them. Lots of fun and brutally difficult, like many NES games. The controls are a bit wonky and many deaths are cheap as hell, but that's part of the charm. Only recommend if you enjoy retro games and like a challenge.
Looking forward to hearing your gaming anecdotes, peeps.
It'll be awhile before I figure out how to do one of these. :P
