Yes, I enjoy them and I often enjoy the stories but they really aren't fun to play. Don't think I've replayed a single one of them after I beat them once (even though I always intend to). After about half an hour, I move on to something else.

Omicron is actually quite good game (something that fans are still hoping would get announced sequel some day), if somewhat unpolished and bit too ahead of its time. Indigo Prophecy is fairly solid experience, if you like P&C adventure games. Rest...yeah, he went too much in indulging his inner Hollywood director wannabe.

The Witcher 3 and Red Dead Redemption 2 are are stand outs for me from this generation. Both games look amazing, but the gameplay is a cluncky mess. Worst of all traversal is terrible in both titles, making exploring the beautiful worlds a painful expereince.

There are probably others, these are just the two I really wanted to play, and look absolutely amazing, but I had to stop playing because the gameplay was so bad.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

I think that might be due to the point and click narrative driven aspect of it. I love the genre, but I will never replay those types of games because one I've played a long story driven game and figured out the mystery there is little reason to come back to them.

Games like Teltales the Walking Dead series, The Wolf Among Us, Until Dawn, Life if Strange, Heavy Rain and most recently Detroit: Too Human etc are all good games though not games I play to 'play' a game. More like if I wanted to watch an interactive novel, but have my own choices and path.

For me, FFXV comes to mind. A great looking game but horrible and unsatisfying combat. Not helped by terrible controls and camera angles. Then there is the barren and uninteresting world and the traveling, which takes too long between missions. I could deal with playing a FF with its usual convoluted (but usually interesting) stories but I had to put my controller down after a few hours. Game reeks all style, no substance.

No it's not, that game is hideous.

That game is great. The narrative is a bit....off. But the gameplay is top.

Look, everyone! This is the day when vivster conceded that 30 fps in a game is fine.

Only if you include performance in graphics, which nobody who matters does. 30FPS is acceptable in some games and in this particular case it was definitely not what made me quit the game.

Owned it once upon a time. It was beyond awful. Horrible gameplay. Stupid obtuse areas that tell you nothing how to progress. It's the game that makes me realize why the rest of his games have practically no real gameplay. Trying to hide how inept he is as a level and game designer.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Vectorman, Turok 2, can't think of one from PS2/GC/Xbox generation, Resident Evil 6, HellBlade.

No, it's not.

But I could think of a much less controversial choice in the meantime: Trine 2. There shouldn't be anyone who disagrees with that.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
