So daily challenges have been a thing in games for a while now and I wanted to ask the community a couple of questions about them.
Are there any games that do dailies that you have kept up with in terms of doing dailies every day? Maybe a lapse here and there, but are there any games you have made a habit of playing every day? If so, how long have you consistently been doing daily challenges?
If you don't do dailies, what game would you like to have daily challenges/quests that you could come back to over and over again?
What would you consider "your" game? The one that you allow yourself time for each day.
I don't do dailies everyday because that's kind of dumb, but I could see myself doing weekly quests. I really think that Borderlands could benefit from daily challenges. I consider Heroes of the Storm "my" game of choice for now.
The entire run of core Ratchet and Clank games are iterative but also among my favourite games of all time. The series has been widely criticised for repeating the same thing over and over again but for me the games are short enough and far enough apart that I love playing through each new one that comes out. There is enough variation in the level design and weapons to make each one feel different enough while maintaining what has been great about the series since the beginning.
I second this. Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal was basically a better version of Going Commando. It was a lot better, though. I played all three of those games in one summer. It was great.
I finished dead space 2 and was really unhappy with the story. I might try dead space 3 but it's not high on my backlog.
Also to put my indifference towards San Andreas into perspective, I finished saints row 2 & 3 before picking San Andreas up. I'm thinking God of War might be another series I don't much care about, but I think I can give it till the end of the first game.
What are some popular games that have passed you by?
I will probably never finish Deus Ex. I've played it, but I just can't get past some of the more archaic design decisions. I've also been spoiled by it's sequel Human Revolution. I really enjoyed Adam Jensen's adventure and I have no real desire to go back to it. I feel the same way about every Grand Theft Auto game from III to San Andreas. I finished IV before I really started trying to play any of the older ones, and they just aren't as fun or engaging as IV. Some other ones I will probably never play or finish are:
Bioshock - Really enjoyed Infinite, but I spoiled the story for myself when it came out in 2007 and I listened to the hotspot spoilercast.
Diablo II - It's fun, but Diablo III, Torchlight, and Torchlight II do what I want from this game better.
Oblivion - I really enjoy playing this one, but I would rather play Fallout or Skyrim.
Infinity Engine games (Planescape, Baldur's Gate II, Icewind Dale) - I want to enjoy games like this, but I just can't sink my teeth into the gameplay or the story. There's just a lot in the way for me to push through as compared to something like Dragon Age or The Witcher.
So what about you guys & gals, what popular games are you likely never to finish?
There's a sale going on. Rogue Legacy, System Shock 2, and Guacamelee are on sale for the next 12 hours $2.99, $.99, and $3.74 respectively. Certain Bethesda (Skyrim & more), Bandai Namco (Dark Souls & more), and Paradox Interactive (Crusader Kings & more) games are on sale for the duration of the sale. Are any of you guys looking to pick anything up for cheap?
