Ok, I gotta say I'm kind of relieved now that I know that the story won't be much of a problem. But now that I think about it, I don't know much about the gameplay, so reading some of the comments has me doubting again.

Hey everyone.

Since Middle-Earth: SOM came out, I've only heard good things about the game. Hell, it's Giant Bomb's 2014 Game of the Year! Yet, I was never really interested in the game, since I'm not a LOTR at all. I've never read a single book, seen a single movie, or played any of the past games (somehow, the saga has never gotten my attention). But now, I'm growing more and more curious, since there's so many people saying I should play Shadow of Mordor.

So my question is: If I'm not a LOTR fan, and if I don't know anything about the universe, will I still enjoy the game? Will my ignorance make me feel lost with SOM's story? If so, should I pick up The Hobbit or something like that to get up to speed? Any comments or suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

Hey guys,

So i've been playing ME2, just after finishing the first one. It got me really hyped since they did a lot of improvementes over ME1, and I'm enjoying the experience.

I've started to wonder wether I should get ME3 or not. I remember a couple years back when the game was released that a lot of people here were complaining about the "horrible ending". Leaving the ending issues aside, should I play ME3? At least for the sake of finishing the story?

I appreciate all comments and opinions.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets for Gamecube. I returned it to the store a day later. It just wasn't what I was looking for at the time.

Hey guys.

So I've been thinking about picking up Borderlands 2, since I've been told it's a great game, and it's been a while since I played a decent shooter (Not a CoD or Halo fan). But I have not played the first Borderlands yet. Should I play the first one, or can I jump straight into the second one? Will I be missing something by skipping 1?

I appreciate any coments!

N64: Star Fox 64

Gamecube: Resident Evil 4

Wii: Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Xbox 360: Red Dead Redemption

You can ask me another day though, and I think my answers would be different.

I beated Tony Hawk's Underground story mode 6 times in a single month. I couldn't stop imagining it could be me who lived that story, so I replayed it doing the exact same things over and over, thinking it was me doing the skating

2 games:

F-1 World Grand Prix for Nintendo 64. A racing game?? How's that emotional? Turns out, it was my dad's favorite videogame, the one we used to play all the time, since F-1 was his favorite sport. I remember endless afternoons as a kid playing every race in the game. Most of my Nintendo 64 games are special because those are the ones I used to play the most with my dad, but F-1 is the one that reminds me the most of him. R.I.P Dad.

The Darkness: shortly after my father passed away, I had my first girlfriend, and my first true love. As @jakob187 said:

  • The Darkness the love story told between Jackie and Jenny was absolutely excellent.

And I remember that Jackie always told Jenny how she was his light in the darkness. I felt the same way about my girlfriend, as she was my support during a very dark time. And thus, making Jackie my avatar.
