Come on then, Pud! Let's see 'em! We need an official list of 'games that don't suck'. In your opinion. :-D
No_PUDding's official thread of awesome games(30 posts)
You guys should suggest thigns and I'll either buzz them, or ding them.
Buzz being bad, ding being good. I can't be bothered to write a list.
I'm sensing more buzz than ding in the near future.
ICO and Shadow of the Colossus.
Juuuust to get them out of the way :P
Let's go crazy here....
DING and DING.
Thanks Johnny. :D
TressPasser : DING
Baldur's Gate: DING
Blade Runner: Ding
Total War series: DING
Suddenly I think I understand why you don't like Fallout 3.
EDIT: Yeah still don't get it, lol.
PC Fanboy, Depth, like strategy, I don't know.
Yeah, I was using PC games as exmaples.
Just kidn of startign from my earliest experiences with gaming.
So Sims and Sim City get a ding as some of the most useful games in history, in terms of tranforming non-gamers into gamers.
damn it, that Blerk guy already 's stolen my reply :(
Well I am not a normal PC fanboy, I don't like depth over fun.
I like them togther. Which is what makes a great game.
I like good games, and Fallout 3 is not one.
a bit a different topic, but I'm actually lost why you deemed Uncharted a "great" game. it was you whom I argued with about it, wasn't it?
As I said, It's not just PC games I think are great. I said I intentionally chose that. On the PS2 I had tons of mainstream games you could think of and enjoyed them.
I am not averse to non-depthy PC games, but some games are synonymous with the depth of PC games.
Uncharted is excellent, superb charcterisation, and storytelling. Very fun to play, as I have said many times, kind of the exact opposite of Gears in context of a third person shooter.
It's light, darty and fast. And it's bright and colourful. And my favoruite thing is how they mix the game up. I didn't like the zombies, purely due to concept. The way it mixed up the gameplay was awesome however.
I actually hated the platforming becuase of the visual feedback, and hope Uncharted 2 will improve on it.
well, okay I was just trying to say your Fallout er, review is completely an opinion.
It wasn't a review, it WAS an opinion.
My point was that it was much less based on those personal vendetta's, becuase it's not a series I cared for, and it's a lot more faithful than I could have hoped.
What I was saying is that the game is only a marvel becuase of quantity. Nothing feels refined, or great about it. It's just an experience, due to the options that you have.
Slightly different point of view... I went into F3 expecting to hate it, and to be honest I'd been trolling it for months and ranting about how they'd dumbed it down for console fans.
I was utterly wrong. Fantastic game.
No More Heroes
Street Fighter IV
theme Hospital does rock.
Peter Molyneux shoudl stick to those kind of strategy/simulation games.
Yeah Psychotext, I was impressed, I expected much worse.
Don't tell me you don't know Zeliard!!
Descent 1 + 2
/ponders buying off gog.com
Okay new games added:
SP: Chaos Theory
Infamous (soundtrack confirms it's status)
Duffking, seeing that you mentioned Descent, there was a futuristic arcade flying PC game around that time, where the camera angle was behind the Fighter jet. Very techno-ish soundtrack and boss battles at the end of each level. And there was a cheat code where you just had to type in TOMATOES and you'll get weapon upgrades.
I can't for the world remember the name of that game, and i want to go back and beat it. It was pre-1998 I believe.
SimCity 2000? (everything after 3000 can be ignored...)
Metal Gear Solid 3?
No idea Brennan. Games that spring to mind that I've played but probably not correct are Forsaken, Incoming, Terminal Velocity and G-Police. None of those seem right though.
Sim City 2000 was superb, but so was Sim City 4, I love the micromanaging just as much as not.
Okami, nah, not a fan. Good platformer, and I have recently had my view chnaged on it. I think I am way to quick to say what is arta nd what is not, it's all art if it makes you think. But this was just entertainment, with a nice art direction. Nothing wrong with that.
Metal Gear Solid 3, nowhere near as much of a work of insanity/genius as MGS2, and nowhere near as special in that regard, but still a superb game, and I'd prefer play MGS3 any day.
By the way, worries me that I am ego-centric enough to keep this thread alive.
Don't judge me xD
Your view on the two games I mentioned earned you some bonus points. :)
I caved in and bought Descent. It's still great.
