I thought Rage was generally liked but I noticed it hasn't been put on nearly anyones GOTY list, not even at number 10. I'm not expecting it to beat out the other great games that came out this year but it seems as no one is even considering it for any spot on their list.
It's actually been the opposite, topping peoples ''games you regret purchasing'' list. I found that strange since after playing Rage I found it to be a game that has great shooting mechanics, a good selection of weapons (and you could hold all of them at once) and a pretty fun racing section. Not only that, but even though Rage is mostly a linear shooter outside of the games ''hub world'' I think it was good to see a game that allowed you to use different ways to take out enemies with different gadgets, ammo etc to mix up the fun, unlike other FPS in which you can only shoot one type of bullet and that's it.
It isn't a perfect game but it is a fun one that doesn't get too dry thanks to different ways to kill enemies and great shooting. The game also looks amazing along with the character animations.
So tell me, did you like Rage? If not, why not?
