Far Cry 3? Meh
This topic is locked from further discussion.
Don't get me wrong, I can see a great game in there. There's a lot going for it. I just couldn't, can't get into it. I played it for a long time. A long time because I wanted to like it. Enjoy it. Make it worth spending 40 notes on it but I felt no heart. Everyone thinks it's excellent. I think it is only meh. 7 or an incredibly generous 8 out of ten. I'll meet you half way and go for 7.5 but that's stretching it. Sorry to all those who "love" it.
A review might have been better than this. Also everyone has an opinion, it doesn't mean I want to know everyone's opinion if its just going to be meh. Next time be a bit better at explaining your views on the game so that I don't go meh at this thread.
@BearSpark: What is it that you don't like and what is it that you expected to find and like?
You're insane. Speaking of which, did I ever tell you the definition of insanity?
I'm not saying that I see what you did there, but I see what you did there.
To each their own.
I agree that the game is doing some things insanely right, but also lacks a lot of polish on other sides. If you're looking to free roam and snipe dudes with a bow for awhile however...best 20 bucks you'll ever spend.
I'll elaborate on why I thought Far Cry 3 was "meh." For about 8 hours I had a great time capturing bases, hunting, and climbing towers. The story missions were also interesting enough to keep me going and the side missions were numerous enough to keep me busy but not over abundant enough to get annoying. Unfortunately, the second 8 hours were exactly the same with one main exception: the story got dumb as hell! I was so pumped the first half of the game and it was definitely on its way to being one of my favourite games of the year, but by the time I finished it I was thoroughly burnt out on the gameplay and story. The only other open world game I played this year was Sleeping Dogs I believe and they had comparable lengths, Sleeping Dogs never had it's story fall off a cliff so I think that's why I didn't burn out on that so much.

Don't feel sorry for me, I'm currently playing what I consider to be Game of the Year and one of the funnest games of the generation.
If anything, I should feel sorry for you.
Yupp, we're the ones that are supposed to feel sorry.
Meh is a 7 or 8 as it is only a so so game. For a game to be great would have to be an 8 going on 9 or nine and above. And no, to all those who think I'm starting a thread for some inane reason that I won't even contemplate, no. It's a forum for games and gamers alike. I don't remember there being any 'rules' about what you can and cannot post. I'm not a critic. I don't write posts for magazines or such like. Being an individual and given that you can post just whatever the hell you like on here, and people do, I felt it worth putting my feelings down. I didn't start this for everyone to slate it at every given opportunity, but I also have the foresight to understand that whatever I said would get a reaction, be it positive or negative. I had the choice of saying what I wanted. You had the choice to read it. You also had the choice to retort. That is your choice.
It's not about being 'unique' SASnake. Everyone is unique. Including you. A dick for making such a stupid accusation but you're unique none the less. Again my apologies. Not about the game or those who enjoy it but about being vulgar.
Elaborate on the game? Yeah I could but what would be the point? Everything I say would be challenged and opposed. I know why I don't like it. Do you really care? I suspect not. Do I care that you do not care? No and nor am I bothered but thanks for taking the time out of your lives to comment on my post. Makes me feel really, really important. (Try and spot the sarcasm)
Actually, a lot of people would have preferred if you had elaborated, and it would have drawn less ire if you had. You are entitled to your opinion, but at least lay the foundation for your feelings toward the game(which you did) then build an argument. A post like your last one just validates everyone's douchey responses since they have nothing to relate your reaction to the game with.
I don't remember there being any 'rules' about what you can and cannot post.
Actually, there are! And here is a fabulous link with the ~*~★~*~Forum Rules~*~★~*~!
I'm going to lock this thread seeing as the direction it has headed isn't exactly the most positive one and would appreciate less naming calling (from all sides! >:( ) in the future. Thank you~
