My opinion is it's best to have a strong physical attraction.

Games are only expensive because we want so many of them. Fact is, price of games have stayed relatively the same the past three decades. NES games were 50-60 bucks. Today's games are 50-60 bucks. Hell, I remember N64 games being 80. The Genesis version of Virtua Racer was 100.

But don't you realise that that means that the price of games has actually gone down?

Hint: inflation.

Thats how it started.... My hate has evolved to something much more specific.

The only thing that confuses me is you say you love role playing games.

But don't all rpgs have levelling up and stats?

@thereal25

I already like RPGs, I freaking love'em.... I just don't like Stats.

So just to be clear - what bothers you is the grind in order to level up?

Spot on on the 2nd Point... But lack of Co-Op is not a deal breaker.

I hope the day comes when you embrace rpgs. So much mindless fun!

... and they're great value for money too - often well over 100 hours worth of gameplay for a single playthrough!

Sure I did... judging by my non-existant difficulty/ammo rant

Hm, well your criticisms just sound a bit biased to me. I've heard others say the that the story is good/decent if you pay attention and the gunplay satisfying.

Maybe you just wanted to race through the game in 4 or 5 hours... I don't know... but your review doesn't quite convince me somehow. No offence.

I don't think Fallout is even halfway decent.... Wana guess why ? ;)

lol don't tell me coz there's no co-op!

and yes, I fully acknowledge that progression is based on time spend playing rather than skill or tactics - to a large extent...

But you just gotta accept that and enjoy the ride...

Interesting, but what if one hasn't played other horror games such as resident evil or silent hill?

The phrase "there's a sucker born every minute" exists for that reason

So you mean to say that even if I've never played any resident evil games or similar - then you STILL wouldn't recommend this game?

I thought I was pretty clear the first two times, but I'll try to elaborate

If the indication how absolutely soulless and faceless the game is isn't enough, yeah I wouldn't recommended it in any scenario; because of its bad level design, horrible boss design, entirely ham-fisted stealth system, stitched together horror elements borrowed from other games with no clear theme as well as the complete misunderstanding of the genre, with zero self-awareness or parody which would've otherwise saved it.

And if you ask me would I recommend it to a person who hasn't played Resident Evil 4 before? No, I would not; I'd say that person should play Resident Evil 4 instead, which by all means the superior game in every way

It's a survival-horror game. You gotta be smart and conserve ammo and such.

Sounds like you thought it was your typical triple A hand holder.

I don't think anygame thats played just once qualifies as Great....

Hm there might be some truth to that. I certainly played F.E.A.R 1 and fallout 3 more than once. :)
