    Dark Souls - I shouldn't need to explain this. IMO, the most perfect video game

    Shenmue - the only story based game I have ever enjoyed, also introduced the QTE to gaming, which I thoroughly despise, but in this game it worked because the story wasn't totally lame. Or maybe it was, but I was probably 17 when I played it so my taste have changed)

    Dragons Dogma - The only game I have thoroughly enjoyed for more than one playthrough since Dark Souls. I even enjoyed the story.

    Mount and Blade series - a perfect sandbox medieval simulator. Combat is only rivaled by Souls series.


    Also Ghost Recon - the original Ghost Recon is unrivaled in tense, tactical FPS gameplay. There are other more "realistic" games like Arma, but those games are so big and complicated it would be easier just to join the army. Ghost Recon has straightforward controls but builds tension like no other tactical shooter I have played. No other game would I slowly low crawl from cover to cover, taking tactical pauses for minutes at a time, and then still feel a little anxious as I bound forward with my teammate covering my movement, and enjoy it.

    It's graphics seem pretty cartoony at first, but then you see all the blood around, and some of the more *grotesque* aspects of the game. It has multiplayer and A LOT of different things to choose from.

    Finished insane mode yet? My son has a lvl 86 red knight, I have a lvl74 orange. It's a very fun game but.... Fat princess is better :p

    is it really that good? i played the demo and i though it was meh. maybe crappy demo?

    ahh warhawk, such an underrated gem of a game. one of the best online communities i've ever seen(probably the best since i can't think of a better one at the moment) everyone wass just really into the game and people actually wanted teamwork wheneve you got in there at least five guys would be like 'so what are we doing guys?', pretty awesome.

    That game was really good untill everyone started hacking. Now it's no fun because literally everyone can't die and literally everyone one shots everything. Yes, I meant to type literally.

    The demo isn't as good as the true game. It stays fun throughout unlike most games where they get boring at the end. There's literally a boss that begins crapping itself to attack you.

    Star Wars Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast.

    It is simple an amazing action game. I had played a few hack and slash games in the past and a few shooters, this one was a mix of both. However it got something absolutely right which Star Wars games to this day struggle with.

    If you hit a person with your lightsaber, it cuts through them. You have a max of 100 health, and 100 shielding. On one hit a lightsaber can easily deal 200 damage instantly killing you. So it wasn't about hitting Dark Jedi with light up bats, you would duel them and clash blades. Once one strike got through generally you or they were dead. As you played you got to learn new abilities, the story itself isn't super but decent. There is a wide array of levels, in fact they even do sort of semi-introductions in some cases. Early on you get a quick tour of the Jedi Temple, going through the civil areas before going through a sort of trial in a temple. At a later level the civil areas are used in a more dire situation causing them to open up and allow you to actually go to places which you thought would always be closed off. The puzzles are simple yet do still require some thought. Powers can be used in a variety of ways. For instance, a quick trick for killing enemies is to push them onto the ground. Next, jump high over them, then right as you pass over them use force pull. It will slingshot them high into the sky.

    Another thing I loved is that you can actually do things in a non-violent ways, not always, but you can strip enemies of their weapons and they'll surrender. Something a Jedi would certainly do.

    In the game you play as Kyle Katarn, my favorite Jedi.



    Kyle "***" Katarn is a badass through and through. He is known as the Jedi Battlemaster, most people outside the order don't even recognize who he is without his weapon. Since he doesn't wear robes, he wears street clothes or armor. He uses energy shields, explosives, he has a criminal history and has no issue with people bending the rules. He is a Jedi Commando for lack of a better word. Throughout the game you will find moments where using sniper rifles, rocket launchers, heavy blaster rifles with plasma launcher alternative firing systems will benefit you more than your blade. Kyle Katarn has no problem with this, it's all about what is practical to him. He also isn't a Jedi that is afraid of emotions or any of that. He has used the Dark Side, Kyle has a girlfriend, he has friends he talks to and drinks quite frequently. He had a family that you got to know, basically if a Star Wars Sequel Movie was made he would be a prime candidate for a main character that would make the movie great.

    This is also a hard as hell game, playing through on Normal will cause most players to die frequently due to the difficulty. For instance, snipers one shot you. If you aren't using force speed they will probably hit you. Explosives, they'll flat out kill you. Essentially in this game most things, including you, can easily die in one hit. Because of this your control and reaction time is very important. You can also set up traps with mines or remote explosives. The game also has stealth elements, you can sneak through areas using quiet weapons to hit the enemies without them knowing. Physics also play a big part with the push and pull mechanic.

    Did I mention the special moves? The game has placement based attacks for the lightsaber combat, as well as direction. For instance, if you swing to the right with the strong style, you'll swing pretty fast while pushing an enemy should they survive the attack. With the quick style you can roll and get a fast thrust attack off. If using the strong style, moving backwards suddenly with your back to an enemy and swinging causes you to do a backwards wide knee high slice. Meaning you can knock enemies down, jump over their heads, then as they rise up spin around executing them all at once. These attacks all carry over into the multiplayer allowing for an incredible meta game in regards to dueling.

    Because of the placement sensitive combat you can force moves, such as suddenly revealing your back while jumping to get a mid air knee high reverse slice while moving. You can then use your mouse sensitivity to choose where the blade is going and cause your blade throughout the whole swing to face the enemy. Multiplayer maps often have dueling arenas, as well there is a specific duel mode. It was very common to have duel group maps, where a ring was decided and people could watch you fight others in it. It was all about who could deflect the attacks of the other person while trying to get their own hits in.

    Parrying was in the game, blocking wasn't. You had to aim your blade to actually cross the other person otherwise you or they would miss, and one of you would die. If you hit partially across, it would deflect their attack. If you made a perfect X you entered saber lock, and had to mash attack to push back the enemy.

    All in all, I *** love that game. If i had a gaming PC I'd probably be playing it right now. If an HD Remake came out I'm sorry to say but I'd probably drop Dark Souls for it.

    do you keep learning new moves or magic setc. throughout the game? cause that's one of the things i look for in a game, new moves, items and weapons as you progress in the game.

    Yeah, you learn a TON of moves, so many that you'll forget how to do half of them. The magics are pretty simple. Splash, Long-range, jumping diagnol long-range, and magic jump. Although some combos implement magic. I stopped playing awhile back when I lost XBL, but I remember there being like 50 weapons or so, including Fire Swords, Clubs, and even live Chickens tied to a stick. By now, there's probably a lot more items then there was before.

    My absolute favourite game is Fable: TLC. While the game doesn't have the best mechanics i've ever been faced with, the atmosphere is amazing, and the soundtrack enchances that feel. I can't describe how much i love this game, but damn it, do i love it.

    Star Wars the Force Unleashed was sort of supposed to be that reboot.

    Double thumbs down to that series, a shame on the Star Wars canon.

    the Jk Knight games will always be in my heart, if only my PC didn't die right before getting Dark Forces.

    Kyle Katarn is the main character for most of the series, Badass Jedi Battle Master, warrior of the Jedi and Master in all forms of combat.

    Boring is subjective, but I love it. The combat, in perticular, is awesom.
