Recommend a Game
« on: November 26, 2014, 05:48:38 PM »
Since my IRC chat with Saddam wasn't helpful, I am going to ask here. Come Christmas time, I am going to have a few days off without traveling plans. This will be the first down time I have had in a very long time and I want to power through a video game. I haven't been in the game in years. I stopped gaming around 2008, and came back for FF 13 (sadly), and the most recent thing I have played through was AC3. I have about 4 days to get the job done. I am primarily a consolefag as Saddam pointed out, but if it was worth it I would go PC since my PC is more than capable of playing anything currently available. Saddam suggested Morrowind repeatedly, which isn't happening.

So I am turning to the gamers of FES for a recommendation on either PS3 or PC. Don't let me down.

Have you played The Last of Us? Definitely a great PS3 game, came out quite a long time ago too, should be pretty cheap on the PS3.

RPG, adventure, FPS (if it isn't too generic). Only PS3 at the moment, plus my PC.

I actually have it. I got a PS3 basically for free last summer with Heavy Rain and The Last of Us. I played HR for a few hours but then had to get back to life. Haven't even opened The Last of Us.

Limited time.

I don't know. Is that your recommendation?

1. Morrowind repeatedly
2. Battletoads
3. Elite: Dangerous
Thank you for the input. Of those, I will take a look at Elite I think.

I got the system on a whim, for free. Had a few hours to kill and haven't been able to play since. Between work, classes, and family obligations I haven't had time. I read good things about the game, but this will be basically my one chance for a long time. Have to make it count, and I value your opinions.

Looks interesting, that will get some consideration.

Have you played Portal/Portal 2?

It won't take 4 days, but it'll be fun!

Terrible, just terrible.

RPG, adventure, FPS (if it isn't too generic). Only PS3 at the moment, plus my PC.

Have you played Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning? I've heard good things about it, but I've never played it myself. The sequels to Final Fantasy XIII are supposedly a lot better than the original, but I haven't played those either after the disaster that was FF13. There are several Dynasty Warriors games on Ps3 that are good for mindless fun, but if you're looking for anything deeper than that then avoid them. Ni No Kuni is a decent JRPG, but kind of childish and has very little challenge.

For shooters, Unreal Tournament for Ps3 is the best thing since Unreal 99... but I would just recommend playing Unreal 99 on PC instead.

Generic answer would be: Uncharted, CoD Modarn Ware, GTAV, Destiny, Far Cry 4

Ps3 really doesn't have many good games. Get a Wii U or a 3DS.

Yeah, I played portal toward the end of my Steam days.

Okami on the Playstation Store is great also. HD upgrade, looks great and plays great too.

Edit: you play as a wolf, and you can pee on people and bite people in the ass.

I saw that back when it was on PS2, but never played it. I will give it a look.

Kingdom Hearts
Played it. Wrecked it. Good times.
