So what was the last game you finished and would you recommend it?

So I personally just finished Asura's Wrath, picked it up because of the good words that it got in the bombcast.

For me, I didn't find it as crazy as the guys were describing it to be in the bombcast, maybe because I watch a lot of anime and I'm accustomed to that madness.

That said, if another game was ever made mostly with QTE, this is how it should be done. Kept me well engaged throughout and it was quite the experience. I would recommend it, but would wait for a price drop if it hasn't already dropped in price in your area so you can buy the DLC as well and get the full game without overspending it.

What about you guys?

OH SHIT NO.

Max Payne 3. Finished it yesterday and it's one hell of a game. From shooting to music, everything is top notch. Couldn't recommend it enough to fans of third person shooters

#4 Posted by Coafi (1481 posts) -

The Walking Dead Episode 1, it's cheap and short with more episodes coming up.

#5 Posted by BonOrbitz (2137 posts) -

Saints Row The Third, my second favorite game from last year.

#6 Posted by KillyDarko (1888 posts) -

Last game I finished (late last week) was actually X-Men Origins: Wolverine ^^ Do I recommend it...? Sure, I guess, if you can find it real cheap like I did. It's probably the best movie tie-in out there.

#7 Posted by pyromagnestir (4195 posts) -

Bastion and yes.

I will not ask VGK if he is serous because I don't want to know. (I mean I want to know, but I don't, ya know?)

Alan Wake (PC) - A truly unique and atmospheric Third Person horror Shooter that aspires to introduce new unforgettable innovations in action/shooting, story telling and also visuals and graphics. 
 
9/10, Remedy is a gem among passionate development studios, and extra KUDOS for the satisfying PC version other developers need to learn from when they "port" their games. 
My 2012 GOTY.

Alpha Protocol, and mostly yes. If you can find it cheap (and this shouldn't be an issue so late after the game's release), then it's worth a playthrough for the story. The shooting in the game is absolutely terrible, though, so that's my warning if you want to play a character who goes into every situation guns-blazing. It won't work. The game simply won't let you. Also, if you get the PC version, plug a controller in. I found it absolutely maddening to play with a mouse and keyboard because of camera sensitivity issues with my mouse.

max payne 3, and absolutely. fantastic game all around. singleplayer and multiplayer.

#11 Posted by Nightriff (4862 posts) -

Darksiders, it's awesome, play it. It's cheap now.

#12 Posted by Mystyr_E (1187 posts) -

Diablo III

........depends. The gameplay's even funner than D2 was and runs very solid but the story rather sucks and I never feel as compelled to revisit the acts so if ya want story game, no. Action game, sure.

#13 Posted by Kaiserreich (681 posts) -

Phantasmagoria 2 and yes.

The game isn't good but it tries so hard its charming. And the story is batshit insane.

#14 Posted by Animasta (14633 posts) -

Last game I finished? Does a third playthrough count? if so, devil survivor 2 (which I would recommend)

and if not, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, which I would also recommend but the combat's fucking boring. Story's ace, though I would suggest playing Innocent Sin first.

#15 Posted by BeachThunder (11636 posts) -

Well, I just finished a playthrough of Binding of Isaac (Wrath of the Lamb). And, yes I would - always be Isaacing.

Hells yeah! It's my GOTY so far as well-- amazing game, great job with the PC version. I'd give it  a 9/10 myself :)
#17 Posted by 49th (2669 posts) -

Bastion and yes also.

#18 Posted by ervonymous (1297 posts) -

Disgaea 3 for the Vita. Only if you're not deathly afraid of cartoon ladies, seemingly complex gameplay mechanics layered on top of another and grinding until your Vita can't hold a battery charge at all.

#19 Posted by Commander_Crichton (153 posts) -

Brutal Legend. I guess I would recommend it, it's not like there are a lot of open world/real time strategy/hack n slash hybrids. Plus it's totally METAL!!!

Quite.

#21 Posted by Svenzon (711 posts) -

Diablo III. And yes. If you want a cool hack n slash, this is one hell of a game. It does get à bit heavy on the loot porn at times and the writing is terrible though. On the other hand, you're probably expecting the former and don't care about the latter if you like Diablo.

Yessssss me too. I had a weird sense of joy when I saw multiple people playing it today, that game's so good.
#23 Posted by green_sky (49 posts) -

Red Dead Redemption and Bastion. Yes to both.

#24 Edited by PenguinDust (12436 posts) -

I replayed Borderlands this past weekend and I would recommend it again, although with Borderlands 2 coming out this holiday, I wouldn't pay more than $20 for the original.

#25 Posted by pyromagnestir (4195 posts) -

@Video_Game_King: Why? Just why?

And also ooh I made a typo. and learned a new word. Serous. I will not remember that one.

#26 Posted by Grimmrobe (199 posts) -

The new Ghost Recon, and yes, if you're interested in a challenge.

#27 Posted by AngelN7 (2970 posts) -

I'll say Journey what a great little game that is I don't know what genre it fits Adventure/Platformer maybe? , 15$ on PSN is really pretty with a really great mood is short but is worth the replay just make sure to play the first time in one sitting your first run is an unique experience that you won't emulate later.

For the blog, man.

#29 Posted by DonutFever (3548 posts) -

Max Payne 3. Yes. Yes yes yes.

Why would you do that? Why would anyone do that?

Cave Story+.

Yes, even though I don't like furries. Also it's free if you don't want boss rush and new graphics. Old one may have boss rush anyway.

I love how that pony is all serious about rainbows. "Rainbow Celebration?! That shit can't happen without me. I make the goddamn rainbows!"

#34 Posted by Video_Game_King (35800 posts) -

@Coafi:

I like how all the ponies look like cheap palette swaps of each other. (OK, I don't, but I just needed to say that.)

#35 Posted by UitDeToekomst (699 posts) -

before my Diablo III addiction set in, i had been working on my 360 backlog and (finally) started and finished Borderlands, Bayonetta, Crackdown, Crackdown 2 and also completed my first playthroughs of Witcher 2 and Reckoning. I really liked all of them, with the exception of Bayonetta, which i found to be not particularly compelling and too self-consciously wacky (not too mention rather immature in its sensibilities). I'd recommend all of them except Bayonetta, and would even recommend that to certain people.

#36 Posted by Akeldama (4236 posts) -

I guess I "finished" Diablo 3. I would certainly recommend it.

#37 Posted by JaredA (818 posts) -

Last game I finished was Bayonetta, and yes I would highly recommend it!

#38 Posted by sickVisionz (1268 posts) -

The Walking Dead. At only like $5 it's an easy recommend. It's pretty goofy and hokey, but I enjoyed it.

#39 Posted by Vegetable_Side_Dish (1723 posts) -
#40 Posted by benspyda (2015 posts) -

Diablo III on normal and Nightmare I guess if that even counts.

Before that though I finished X-men Origins which I bought in a bargain bin for like $4. Combat was decent but the same environments and enemies are repeated over and over. So I guess there are much better ways of spending your time than with X-men Origins, but that said it is about a million times better than the film.

#41 Posted by HandsomeMuffin (109 posts) -

I finished playing Demon's Souls for the first time this week. I did enjoy it but I'd recommend the superior Dark Souls then the original.

#42 Posted by Zooey74 (53 posts) -

Dear Esther. Really liked it but recommendation would have to be tempered by the questions 1- do you mind dropping a fair bit of cash on something that will only last a couple of hours and 2- how much do you care that your games require you to do stuff other than simply experiencing them. If you're cool with those dive in.

#43 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4673 posts) -

Tales of Graces F. If you like jrpgs, I recommend it. The battle system is great and the characters are likeable.

#44 Posted by aquamarin (555 posts) -

Red Faction: Guerrilla. Yes it's fun, but play that shit soon, it barely holds up.

#45 Posted by Hunter5024 (5506 posts) -

Zelda Skyward Sword, and yes if it's been a while since you played a zelda. Patricks review made me think I would enjoy it a lot less than I did, most likely because I don't think I've actually beaten a Zelda game since Majora's Mask.

#46 Posted by xXxLYNCHxXx (162 posts) -

The Walking Dead. Yes, it was worth it, and am very much looking forward to the next episode.

Darksiders, it's awesome, play it. It's cheap now.

Hey! That's my answer!

The first two hours are a bit of a bore, though, due to how easy it is and how few moves you have to pull off.

Will we be seeing a blog about it?

EDIT: Nevermind, I didn't read ahead in the thread. Sorry.

#49 Posted by Video_Game_King (35800 posts) -

@believer258:

Next week. I finished it just this afternoon.

#50 Posted by Bio2hazard (144 posts) -

The PC version of Alan Wake. I would recommend it. Solid shooting, nice atmosphere.
