    I can agree with you on that Amos. While it's hard to get in to the original Dragon Age itself it still was fun to play when I could get into it.

    I burned my copy of the second Dragon Age.

    For me, I just couldn't get into playing ANY of the Final Fantasy games, Skyrim (loved Oblivion though), Fable, Dead Space, Bioshock and any of the 2D Zelda games besides Four Swords. I even found A Link to the Past boring...

    Currently playing Dragons Dogma, Soul Sacrifice and Grandia 2 though. silly

    I think roleplaying in dark souls is pretty easy to do- you're just as free in dark souls if not more so to make your character unique than in skyrim..

    Also with skyrim, they changed the emphasis of elder scrolls to be much more combat based, but left the gameplay as it's stale awful self. Say what you want about the older games, but there's absolutely no doubt that skyrim's emphasis switched more to combat, and that move simply exposed even further the awful combat system elder scrolls has.

    Needs a revamp an needs deepening. I probably won't play another TES game till that happens, the story is always badly paced and really not very interesting.

    Yeah. I like Grandia 2 more though. silly The first and second ones are awesome, but is the third any good? I have Grandia Xtreme and it's....uhhh..... Got the best combat but the story is pretty bad. Supposedly the third one has awesome combat but a meh story. Too bad there won't ever be a grandia 4 though, since the creator died a year or so ago. sad (That, and that they've wasted funds and time on the Grandia MMO that didn't do well...)
    Who knows, Soul Sacrifice 2 could be on the PS4. Keiji Inafune never stated fully whether or not it will be Vita exclusive. happy

    That game was ok I guess. I always tried to be strategic or careful with my swings. But, once I reached
    Spoiler:
    Ghirahim (Put this here since I'm sure at least a few people still haven't played this game.)
    I just said SCREW THIS. I started to flail around, which surprisingly led me to land all of my hits. Seems like this game was designed with flailing imbecilic swordplay in mind. Shrug


    By the way, if anyone is looking for an extremely good strategy game. For the love of god, stop reading this and look it up now. It's called Frozen Synapse.
    I love that game so freaking much. big grin

    the third one was good but not as good as the first and second ones but definitely try it if you have the time. im so bored of games right now, the only game Im playing is final fantasy 9, loved that game, there hasn't been a FF game I loved like that one in forever, I hated FF8 and the rest were ok.

    I nearly finished 9 but I just got lost and gave up. I"m not too sure why I don't like FF games either. The story is fine, but gameplay felt meh. I'm halfway through 7 but, yet again, I got lost. silly
    I guess I just don't like the gigantic overworlds. I agree with you though, 8 sucked. big grin Only lasted for about five minutes till I hated it. The story sucks, the main protagonist is emo and disturbingly quiet, and the magic system is HORRID.

    RE4 was decent, Raccoon City was great.
    You sir, have bad taste in shooters.
    I bet you play CoD in your spare time. :evil:

    Ratings don't mean that a game is good or bad.
    Just look at Skyrim.

    I know
    But EVERYONE disliked Raccoon City! The corrupt reviewers (IGN plz) the fans who were pissed off because it wasn't survival horror and other dudes.
    Raccoon City was a failure.

    I don't get all the Elder Scrolls hate,Morrowind was one of the top 10 greatest RPGs between 2000 and now.Say what you want about Skyrim and Oblivion,both are nowhere near as good but leave the early games alone.And Resident Evil 1 and 2 were good.
    If I had to pick some games I should have liked but didn't very much,I'd say Crackdown 2,Dead Rising 2 and Counterstrike:GO.
