Haha yeah man totally!! I dont mind them forcing a narrative that way if we only have to watch it once. The first thing I thought of there was Splinter Cell Chaos Theory's opening movie. There was something that tracked how often you played the game, and if you left it a few days you had to watch the entire opening scene again! Dammit Fisher! :D

Thought's on gaming staples/sequences that you're sick of seeing from this generation?
I'll vote on-rails 'turret' sequences where you take damage because you couldn't complete the shooting gallery fast enough! I'm playing through Spec Ops right now, and it has a fair few!
What do you guys nominate?
@Jack268 said:Just Cause 2 and Jak 3 are probably my favorite open world games of all time.How is the open world in Jak 3? Because I am playing through Jak 2 (HD) right now, and I hate that world with a passion, not sure if I'll finish the game.
Haha yeah way less city-based apocalyptic-style stuff, and WAY more open desert based stuff!! Personally I prefer J2 but if you're hating that then a bit o barren wasteland cactus-lovin buggy races might be your thing!! :D
When I made the topic I was thinking of the specific GTA-esque formula of how missions are delivered as well as HUD elements such as the minimap, thats what ties it directly to the likes of the Jak sequels and True Crime, instead of anything with an open structure like WoW or Skyrim, although they are brilliant iterations on a different open style!
Considering how much time I put into TC and TC: NYC when they came out, I was just thinking what are the other great open-world games that took up a lot of your time even though they weren't the most polished, or just great other games of this genre?
I'd take Prototype 1 for something I played LOADS of, and Jak II as one of the best!
What do you guys think?
That was one BADASS game!! Kickin up uzi's Mission Impossible 2 style, slo-mo'in dudes through tables with roudhouse kicks.....and then there was that shit with a giant flying dragon in the underground mines or something!!
WTF was up with that!? Hope they don't have anything similar in this one!
I've never paid Microsoft points for a music video, but if you download anything from Zune can you then stream it through the Xbox guide when playing a game??
I just kinda can't fathom who's paying for music videos and other music content through this clumsy interface when we have much better alternatives such as iTunes or hell even youtube!
What do you guys think? Pointless feature, or something that needs a few tweaks to truly be integral to 'the xbox experience'?
I always name mine after metal songs or artists, so my main 2 at the minute are an ebony greatsword 'Tremorfell's Riff' (Mark Tremonti) and a flame bow, ''Cormier's Flame' (Liam Cormier from Cancer Bats) :D
I was just doing the EC and Starchild likened the Reapers to a burning flame, thereby saying they have no conscience, no will.
I was just wondering what does this mean about ME1, as Saren was being controlled by the Reapers, even though they have no endgame?
Sorry if this is a really stupid question, but I'm still trying to wrap my head around the intentions of Starchild and the reapers in relation to the previous games events!
Rammstein are genuinely the best live performance I've ever seen, absolutely blown away by every single second of the whole show!! I run a music site and did a review as soon as I got back! Any Rammstein fans including the OP or people wanting to get a taste of how spectacular these guys are might wanna check it out! http://irockthereforeiam.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/gig-review-rammstein-290212.html
