    I'm In A Rut

    Post by Extertionist on Wed May 30, 2012 12:00 am

    Okay, Dark Souls is the only game I've been playing lately and I've been getting a bit bored of it, I need some new games to play and I was hoping for some suggestions.

    I play a little of everything but I have standards. I don't usually like JRPGs. I don't like FF. I don't feel a lot of racing and fighting games are worth money, none over the $40 range. Any FPS must be on PC as controllers don't do them justice. And finally, must have at least 10 hours worth of playability.

    I'd recommend you something, but I wouldn't feel right as virtually anything that I can give you would pale in comparison to DkS.

    I would say Shadow of the Colossus, but that is a pretty short game (I beat it in eight hours). Anyways, if you have a Wii (which is doubtful) then play Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Very good game, but again, only for the Wii. Another good game is Bioshock. You can get that for really cheap.

    I don't know, my brain can't think straight right now. I'll think of some good ones later.

    Skip the very stiff bioshock. Everplay Deadspace? Deadspace 2? Both very good games and quite hard on the hard difficulty. Time spent in game is very decieving because it only accounts for the time spent between saves. Does not count the times you spent scrambling with no ammo and still died. Solid story, solid sound, solid graphics and has a small leveling system in it that keeps it interesting. I very much recommend. It is in my top 10 console games list. (I lump series together)

    I tried Bioshock but I couldn't get into it for some odd reason. I will give a crack at Dead Space and as for Zelda, I have played out my share of cartoony style adventures.

    Dead Space--both--are easily worth whatever you'll shell out. They're good lengthed, and definitely fairly difficult on the hardest settings. The plot is pretty fun sometimes, too, and it's just overall a really eerie game. Did love Bioshock myself, though, and can't wait for Infinity.

    A list of what systems you have would be nice. But since that's not available I'll list my top ones on each:

    Wii: Super Mario Galaxy (1 or 2, it doesn't really matter), The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Kirby's Return to Dreamland OR Kirby's Epic Yarn

    PS3: Sonic Generations, Demon's Souls (it's different enough from Dark Souls that it will probably be a refreshing game still winking)

    360: I don't have one of these, so no input here. Sorry :|

    Deus Ex-Human Revolution. Decent plot, some intense battles plus you can use stealth as well as firepower. Oh and lots of shortcuts through ducts and over rooftops. One of my favourite games before Dark Souls.

    the infamous series. and a very good game but underated is transformers war for cybertron(pc version sucks, super glitchy) These are third person shooters, while infamous has a bit of platforming and awesome super powers

    TF2 is a great game, and it's free! There's also a bunch of cheap games on steam like Terraria, which is like 15 bucks. Another good game is Minecraft, which is 25 bucks.

    Hum. . .Metal Gear Solid 4?
    I recently started playing that and i'm about 1/2 way through.

    Red Dead Redemption (and Undead big grin personally my fav)

    Fallout 3 or New Vegas, I hear those are not bad.

    Any of the Disgaea games, if you like to micro manage.

    Infamous, 2 or Festival of Blood if you're feeling cheap XD

    Ah.. Shadow of the Colossus...
