lol at the people who said no. I wonder if their answer would be the same if their lives were threatened. Like, if they were being chased by psycho murderers.

"Hi. Whatcha doin'?"
"Well, I'm being chased by these psycho murderers."
"Holy shit man. Want me to call the cops?"
"Nah bro, I'm cool. I don't fear death. See ya later."

Half-Life 3.

Half-Life 2 is my favorite first-person shooter of all time. Portal is an all right puzzle game with mildly amusing writing.

" It's a great game.  Plasma Cutter is all you need. "

I'm partial to the Ripper. Sure, you can go through the entire game with the Cutter -- but Jesus Christ is the Ripper satisfying to use! It's like in Half-Life 2 when you use the Gravity Gun to fire saw-blades at zombies, only with the Ripper the blades are spinning, remote-controlled and, best of all, produce the most gratifying sound effect ever as they slowly saw through your enemies' limbs.

Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Fable II, Alan Wake, Tales of Vesperia, Shadow Complex, Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 (technically not an exclusive, but since the PS3 version won't have save file importing, it might as well be), Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved.

but explicit content in video games is often censored by the government

Correction: The government doesn't censor in Germany or Australia. Publishers censor their games to achieve lower ratings. "
Because if they don't, video game retailers refuse to carry their games.

The publishers are just making sure they don't go bankrupt. You can hardly blame them.

As for "adult" gaming: it'll happen in time. Video games are still learning how to walk, so to speak. Once they've gotten the basics down (I'm talking about things like mechanics, controls, technology), then they can move on to storytelling -- and when they do, we'll get "adult" games.

If you try to rush the process, all you end up with is junk (see virtually every single video game people praise for its narrative).

Gosh how exciting are you excited I'm excited "
I'm not very excited, to be honest. I really liked the first, but what I've played of II has been significantly inferior in just about every possible way, and almost all of it's because of the PSP's limitations.

  1. Valkyria Chronicles (four stars)
  2. Demon's Souls (four stars)
  3. inFamous (four stars)
  4. Uncharted 2 (three stars)
  5. Killzone 2 (three stars)

This is Dead Space: 1 2
This is Mass Effect 2: 1 2

And in terms of animation, Dead Space blows ME2 out of the water. Isaac is the most convincingly animated human character I've ever seen in a game. Mass Effect 2's animations, on the other hand, are average at best. The game also suffers from framerate issues (crippling ones, at certain points).

Why do people like [insert any game] so much? I can understand that this game is one of those normal, typical and boring video games like Resident Evil 4 and Street Fighter II in which the concept is to interact and win -- game over. All you do is see new content in the process.

The most recent video game I can think of that's enjoyable is RapeLay. Why? It has everything and the best part is, there's actual rape like in Bible Black: La Noche de Walpurgis.
