So gorgeous, cinematic, and engaging. If Modern Warfare 2 hadn't been released this Fall, I could have spent 120 hours Uncharted 2 multi-player instead.
The single-player is an all-too-short action-packed thrill ride. It hits all the notes that the first Modern Warfare did and finds higher ones as well. Spec-Ops is an unexpected gem, and I've spent over 120 hours in the multi-player* despite the frustrating bugs.
*I have a dedicated group of 10-15 people so we almost always field a full Ground War team with stragglers jumping in when they can and sitting on the "wait list" that we call the enemy team.
Man, so hard to quantify my experience with this game. I enjoyed AC1 quite a lot, although I agree it was the "tech" that really kept me playing. I know AC2 is very very good, and the story was enthralling, but are my views of the game someone distorted by how much improved this game is over the first title? Maybe. But I got all of those damned feathers either way.
Whew. Borderlands. I'm not even sure how many hours I've spent playing this game. I have it for both PC and 360. Bought the Zombie Island of Dr. Ned on the 360 and I can't wait for Mad Moxi's Underdome Riot*. I have a level 50 character that has finished playthrough 2 on the 360 and a level 50 that's nearly finished playthrough 2 on the PC. And of course a myriad of level 10-30 characters on both platforms.
*Does it say something sad about me that I might be looking forward to the bank in this next DLC than the actual content?
I'm only about 1/3 of the way through this game, but I can see why it got such good reviews. I'm really enjoy all of it, but if the Dark Knight tells me he doesn't see any tobacco clumps over here one more time while I'm working on the Riddler challenges I'm going to slap my roommate.
Hey it's a game from Bungie. About space marines. Of course it was good! Enjoy the story in the campaign by myself. Enjoyed the obligatory co-op run through the campaign. Enjoyed firefight a lot. I think people overlook how cool it was that Bungie included the full Halo3 multiplayer with this game (even if I haven't spent any time with it lately). I couldn't find anything to complain about in Bungie's first game to re-use an engine.
Man this game was a lot of fun. I wasn't convinced that "Metroid-vania" was all a game needed to suck me in for hours. I was terribly mistaken.
Poor Infamous. If I hadn't picked up Torchlight while it was half off this past weekend you would have made it into this list.
I haven't had any hands-on with Diablo 3, but with the exception of multi-player, this game thoroughly scratches all of the Diablo-related itches you might have. I accidentally made it to level 20 before even meeting Syl to take down the Overseer. How, doing those evil random "Dungeon Maps" purchased from that hooker in the square. Seriously, they could have just made that the whole game and I wouldn't even have noticed.
This is a driving game. There are lots of tracks. There are lots of cars. There are lots of events. There are lots of customizations. There are lots of hours of my time put into this game.
Killzone 2. Man this game looks good. I enjoyed this game as much as I could, but the controls and movement felt even more sluggish than Gears and I just couldn't get invested in the multi-player. So close!
