    Just look at Skyrim.

    Remember the reviews? First day reviews, that is.

    10/10, across the board, pretty much everywhere.
    I call bullsh*t.
    So many non-independant game reviewers are paid off, and it's just so obvious..

    Don't get me wrong, Skyrim was a good game.
    For the first hour...
    The game was completely based around you getting 1 item then completely destroying everything. If you didn't get it, you were dead. If you did get it, the game became a joke. It was a good game, but there was absolutely no medium in terms of challenges.

    I wasn't saying it was easy, I'm saying there's no medium for difficulty. Either the game is too easy to be put into words, or it's too hard to be even considered a viable game. There's very few paths you can stray off of and still have a slight challenge that you can still overcome, it's more of a straightforward "Do this or you can't beat this."

    I never played F.3.A.R. but I thought I was going to be scared. Watched a few videos of it and I couldn't figure out what was scary.

    F.E.A.R. was scary, F.E.A.R. 2 was freaky, F.3.A.R. was a glorified brogame. sad

    Fear 1 ended my love affair with single player fps's, never understood the appeal of that game.

    I love the early resident evil games, re2 is my favorite. The reason the rest failed is because that's not what their fans wanted so a lot less people bought them, they shouldve just changed the names of re4 and re5. Also fear was awesome but the rest were meh.

    I know someone out there will probably kill me for this, but, I absolutely HATE Half Life. ALL OF THEM

    In fact, I despise all Valve games besides Portal. Well What is it
    Yes, even Team Fortress 2.

    I can see why you wouldn't like half life, I found it a bit boring tbh. I didn't like portal, it was meh imo. Team fortress is really fun though but it gets old quick.
