So what was the last game you finished and would you recommend it?

So I personally just finished Asura's Wrath, picked it up because of the good words that it got in the bombcast.

For me, I didn't find it as crazy as the guys were describing it to be in the bombcast, maybe because I watch a lot of anime and I'm accustomed to that madness.

That said, if another game was ever made mostly with QTE, this is how it should be done. Kept me well engaged throughout and it was quite the experience. I would recommend it, but would wait for a price drop if it hasn't already dropped in price in your area so you can buy the DLC as well and get the full game without overspending it.

What about you guys?

Max Payne 3. Finished it yesterday and it's one hell of a game. From shooting to music, everything is top notch. Couldn't recommend it enough to fans of third person shooters

Last game I finished (late last week) was actually X-Men Origins: Wolverine ^^ Do I recommend it...? Sure, I guess, if you can find it real cheap like I did. It's probably the best movie tie-in out there.

I will not ask VGK if he is serous because I don't want to know. (I mean I want to know, but I don't, ya know?)

9/10, Remedy is a gem among passionate development studios, and extra KUDOS for the satisfying PC version other developers need to learn from when they "port" their games.

Alpha Protocol, and mostly yes. If you can find it cheap (and this shouldn't be an issue so late after the game's release), then it's worth a playthrough for the story. The shooting in the game is absolutely terrible, though, so that's my warning if you want to play a character who goes into every situation guns-blazing. It won't work. The game simply won't let you. Also, if you get the PC version, plug a controller in. I found it absolutely maddening to play with a mouse and keyboard because of camera sensitivity issues with my mouse.

Diablo III

........depends. The gameplay's even funner than D2 was and runs very solid but the story rather sucks and I never feel as compelled to revisit the acts so if ya want story game, no. Action game, sure.

Last game I finished? Does a third playthrough count? if so, devil survivor 2 (which I would recommend)

and if not, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, which I would also recommend but the combat's fucking boring. Story's ace, though I would suggest playing Innocent Sin first.

Disgaea 3 for the Vita. Only if you're not deathly afraid of cartoon ladies, seemingly complex gameplay mechanics layered on top of another and grinding until your Vita can't hold a battery charge at all.

Brutal Legend. I guess I would recommend it, it's not like there are a lot of open world/real time strategy/hack n slash hybrids. Plus it's totally METAL!!!

Diablo III. And yes. If you want a cool hack n slash, this is one hell of a game. It does get à bit heavy on the loot porn at times and the writing is terrible though. On the other hand, you're probably expecting the former and don't care about the latter if you like Diablo.

I replayed Borderlands this past weekend and I would recommend it again, although with Borderlands 2 coming out this holiday, I wouldn't pay more than $20 for the original.

I'll say Journey what a great little game that is I don't know what genre it fits Adventure/Platformer maybe? , 15$ on PSN is really pretty with a really great mood is short but is worth the replay just make sure to play the first time in one sitting your first run is an unique experience that you won't emulate later.

Cave Story+.

Yes, even though I don't like furries. Also it's free if you don't want boss rush and new graphics. Old one may have boss rush anyway.

before my Diablo III addiction set in, i had been working on my 360 backlog and (finally) started and finished Borderlands, Bayonetta, Crackdown, Crackdown 2 and also completed my first playthroughs of Witcher 2 and Reckoning. I really liked all of them, with the exception of Bayonetta, which i found to be not particularly compelling and too self-consciously wacky (not too mention rather immature in its sensibilities). I'd recommend all of them except Bayonetta, and would even recommend that to certain people.

The Walking Dead. At only like $5 it's an easy recommend. It's pretty goofy and hokey, but I enjoyed it.

Diablo III on normal and Nightmare I guess if that even counts.

Before that though I finished X-men Origins which I bought in a bargain bin for like $4. Combat was decent but the same environments and enemies are repeated over and over. So I guess there are much better ways of spending your time than with X-men Origins, but that said it is about a million times better than the film.

I finished playing Demon's Souls for the first time this week. I did enjoy it but I'd recommend the superior Dark Souls then the original.

Dear Esther. Really liked it but recommendation would have to be tempered by the questions 1- do you mind dropping a fair bit of cash on something that will only last a couple of hours and 2- how much do you care that your games require you to do stuff other than simply experiencing them. If you're cool with those dive in.

Zelda Skyward Sword, and yes if it's been a while since you played a zelda. Patricks review made me think I would enjoy it a lot less than I did, most likely because I don't think I've actually beaten a Zelda game since Majora's Mask.

Hey! That's my answer!

The first two hours are a bit of a bore, though, due to how easy it is and how few moves you have to pull off.

The PC version of Alan Wake. I would recommend it. Solid shooting, nice atmosphere.
