I'm thinking that it's getting harder for game devs to come up with fresh ideas for gameplay, and story in games, and a lot of games feel similar to other games in its genre.
So what games do you think have managed to come up with something unique?
I'm gonna start the ball rolling with Farcry3's gameplay, I think it's gameplay is fairly unique for an FPS, of course it's just a open world FPS at heart but it's the takedowns that give it the edge which look cool, and you feel like a real badass when doing them. Also the amount of wildlife in this game is great. The feeling of genuine fear you get when you're scoping out a enemy outpost, and you hear a tiger or bear near by, it just adds to the immersion of the game.
