To those of you surprised to see some big games mentioned, well... gamers tend to grossly exaggerate. Of course LA Noire isn't the worst game of this gen, but as someone mentioned above, it absolutely fails in being a detective game. Overrated? Incredibly so. I chose not to finish it because it just wasn't worth it. It was a game with so much potential that was hindered by some unbelievably bad gameplay decisions. I'd say it's certainly one of the most disappointing games, but still far from being among the worst.
And man, I thought Enslaved was quite good, actually... I think that's an under-appreciated game.
Far Cry 2 was so disappointing and terrible.Crackdown 2 was freaking awful. I hated Prototype. Skate 2 was a pitiful sequel. I really thought Gears 3 was surprisingly bad. Tony Hawk's Proving Ground was a complete mess. Far Cry Instincts: Predator has to be one of the worst games I've ever played in my life. Guitar Hero: Van Halen was insultingly bad. I also really didn't like the new Turok. NBA Jam sucked (although On Fire Edition was good).
I loved Killer Instinct. I think Rare was the greatest game company of the 90s. I've been anxiously waiting for this day to come for years... and once it did... I was suddenly disappointed with what I saw. I think it's far too soon to really jump to conclusions about the game, but beyond the graphical upgrade, there's nothing about it that stands out to me. It looks uninspired. Some of us have waited nearly 20 years for this, and I just feel like there's little to get excited about from what we've seen so far. It looks like exactly what you would expect, without any "Wow" factor at all.
Yes. I considered them to be the Lakers greatest adversary during the Shaq/Kobe era, so I've always had a lot of respect for them. I live in Los Angeles, so I'm a Lakers fan, but I think it's hard not to like the Spurs. I really hope they win the Finals. They truly deserve it.
Well, that really depends. What sets off the explosive? Opening it? Touching it? Moving it? Shaking it? How big is this room? Can it withstand the explosion? How many boxes of money would this one box of explosives destroy? How much time do I have? What time of day is it? What's the weather like outside? So many variables, man!
You just have to play it, dude. It looks really lame, but it's not. It's just... gaming paradise. I've been playing the Gamecube version for 10 years on and off. I never grow tired of it. It's a great stress reliever. It's really fun and interesting. It's a lot deeper than it looks on the surface. I have played Animal Crossing now more than any other game I've played in my life. I think most of the people here nailed it on the head. It's peaceful, charming, and a nice change of pace. It allows for a bit of role playing too, which makes it more fun. In the original, I decided to create a second character to capitalize on everything in my town. I ended up making him a strange guy named Bob that wore prison clothes and only went out at night and never talked to anyone. I'd write creepy letters to villagers and leave encouraging posts of revolution against the Nook regime on the town bulletin board. With the addition of online interaction in New Leaf, it opens up all kinds of fun new possibilities.
I owned a 3DS before and I ended up selling it because it was too small so the analog stick caused major thumb cramps for me. It was really uncomfortable and I couldn't play it for long periods of time before feeling that it wasn't worth the pain. Now that Animal Crossing is out, I'm dying to play it. I'm thinking about getting the 3DS XL, since I hear it's more comfortable. Anybody else have more feedback on the comfort of the XL?
