(Gaming Days x 30)^1337: Day 29: Game thought you wouldn't like

Posted by 1337W422102 (1020 posts) -

"Day 29 - A game you thought you wouldn’t like, but ended up loving.
I bought Kane & Lynch: Dead Men from a bargain bin, and as flawed as it is, I really enjoyed it.  The story and characters drew me into it, as arguably bad as they might be.  Really enjoying its sequel, too.

Also, Resident Evil 4.  Bought it in a bargain bin for $5, and shit, did they botch the PC version.  I know my friends liked it when it came out for the 'Cube, but to me, it just seemed like "LOL IM KILLAN ZOMBEES LOOOOL" bullshit.  So I reluctantly installed it, put up with the terrible control scheme (good thing the mod community solved that problem), and really had a good time, despite the shit story, writing, acting, button-mashing cutscenes, lack of anything remotely scary, etc.  Lots of gameplay, some decent replay value, plenty of fun.


 I'LL BUY IT AT A HIGH PRICE
