that's easy. Rage.

Graphically gorgeous (pop-in aside) but no memorable characters, quests were dull and had you backtrack through areas for different reasons (like Dragon Age 2 oddly enough), world was small, you fight a 8 story beast at one point cause sure and the ending was atrocious

I was going to chime in with an obvious 'Destiny' comment but I think Rage hits the nail on the head more than any game I can think of.

@phoenix6153: It ultimately depends on how much you love the Alien franchise and how patient you are. The game's atmosphere is fantastic and could be described as similar to BioShock but I personally found it to be a chore to play at times. With that said, it's the scariest game I've played this year.

  • Dungeon Keeper 3 - Whilst it doesn't look like this will be happening any time soon, thanks to EA's murdering of the franchise through Dungeon Keeper Mobile, I still hold out hope. In the meantime I'll be playing War for the Overworld when it's finished.
  • Aliens vs Predator 2-2 - Monolith's Aliens Versus Predator 2 is superior to both of Rebellion's titles. Give me some more from Monolith!
  • Fallout 4 - Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas have eaten up more hours of my life than I would care to admit. Enough with the Elder Scrolls! Get me back in the irradiated future!
  • Vampire: The Masquerade - This series has a fantastic universe that is (un)dying to be explored in another game! Bring it back!

I qualify for all the 'preferred qualifications' but I fear I couldn't code to save my life! Good luck to all the duders applying!

I think this might just convince me to start playing the Uncharted franchise. God bless you, Naughty Dog.

I was disappointed to see the dumbing down of the tactical slots from DA:O too and noticed that the A.I. weren't particularly great at handling particular situations and/or abilities when left to their own devices. I loved the micro-management from the previous titles but felt that it was more out of countering inconvenient A.I. rather than necessary tactics.

Dragon Age: Origins is what Dragon Age: Inquisition should have been.

In terms of how combat was handled, I'd have to agree. However, that's not to say I don't think that improvements have been made within Inquisition, quite the contrary.

It appears either Ubisoft or the Might & Magic team have stepped forward and clarified how much of an improvement the game's graphics in the HD edition are:

Hi all,

I'm looking to buy some gaming-related stuff for a number of friends this Christmas and was wondering if anyone could recommend some online shops?

Further screens can be found here. I'd upload them to GB but there appears to be some horrible compression going on?
