    Which Game?

    Post by Kyōkai on Sun Dec 23, 2012 10:13 pm

    Assassin's Creed 3.
    Dishonored.
    Dragon's Dogma.
    Far Cry 3.

    Which one do you think I should get?

    Other suggestions are welcome as well.

    Ahh. Painful decisions are painful. I've heard good things about farcry, but few of them involved the story. Thats probably the way I'd go, probably. Sand box games tend to have a really high replay value, there are always new and creative ways to arrange the demise of enemies in a hilarious fashion.

    I'd go with Dishonored, the other ones I hate.

    Or do you want actual positives and negatives about the games?

    That's too bad. I was actually looking for something that focused a lot on story. I had thought that I was leaning towards Far Cry 3, but I'm not so sure now.

    A list of of some of the positives and negatives would be nice.

    Those are all really good games, but are all different. I'd say go with what you feel like at the moment. If you've been having the RPG vibe then get Dragon's Dogma. The shooter vibe, then Far Cry. I'd personally go for AC3 over Dishonored if you're going for a game with a good campaign.

    If you absolutely can't choose, then I say pick Far Cry 3 for its multiplayer aspects.

    If you want story I'd suggest Dishonored, from my experience it has the strongest story, with Assassin's Creed 3 having the weakest one.

    Dragons Dogma (DD) has some great gameplay and its similar to DkS. Its got a nice new hard mode as well but no story whatsoever. Dishonoured has a good story (albeit it rushes itself in some points) but has amazing stealth gameplay and is really fun. I'd get one of those.

    AC3 is apparently more of a beat em up than a stealth game now and as for far cry 3 read this

    Hm. Well, as of now, I've found myself set on Dishonored. Appeals to me to most right now.

    I'd think if anything it would either be Dragon's Dogma or Far Cry 3. Both are open world and a lot of fun to play with a lot to do. If your a big story person, however, I really wouldn't be able to refer you to a good story. Dragon's Dogma doesn't compel you to go through the whole story sometimes, Far Cry 3 from what I've played so far has a decent story, AC3 I really can't say anything about but I've heard the story isn't the best out there, and Dishonored is good it's not open world but the story will probably keep you going through the game.

    Google zero punctuation and look for the reviews on each of those, can't remember if there's a dragons dogma one, but the other 3 are covered.

    Only takes 5 mins each video and they're funny as well as useful, give them a shot.

    it has a focus on story, and the story is well paced and the character development is done well, but the villans are "cartoonishly evil" in an otherwise fairly serious game.

    Take that for what you will.

    haha Serious if you tell them to look those up you have to warn them that if he says ANYTHING good about the game it means the game is brilliant silly

    Well, after watching those reviews(which, by the way damn brilliant), I'm torn between Dishonored and Far Cry 3. :bas:

    Well looks like Dishonoured has the carrying vote xD

    Dishonored's story, to me at least, was actually pretty cheap. Plus, it has very low replay value, there being literally four ways to play the game. It was overall a disappointing title. That's just me, however.

    Spoiler:
    I totally expected the betrayal and the game was just lacking in satisfaction all around.
