Hey everyone, I figured we could use a new one of these since the old one is ancient. This is the place to ask for help when trying to decide what games to buy. So ask away, and we'll do our best to help.:)

After seeing the most recent videos for Red Dead Redemption, I think it looks like it will be the better game:

Red Dead Redemption Life in the West Part 1 Trailer

Red Dead Redemption Life in the West Part 2 Trailer

Red Dead Redemption Gameplay Series: Multiplayer Free Roam

The multiplayer looks amazing.

Judging from your avatar, you like Batman the Animated Series. You NEED to go buy Batman: Arkham Asylum today. It has the same voice cast as the cartoon, and the game is just plain fantastic. Gamespot gave it a 9.0.

I need some good RPGs that won't kick my ass (I'm an epic fail when it comes to difficulty). I'm looking for some games like Oblivion, Dragon Age, Kotor (I/II) and NWN, if anyone would happen to know any good ones.

Fallout 3 has an adjustable difficulty level, and is pretty easy on the easiest setting. If you liked Oblivion, you should check it out.(If you haven't already.)

PS3 owner here and I'm looking for two things, both are genres that I'm looking to get into but have never played:

1. Can you recommend a good JRPG on the PS3 for a beginner?

2. Can you recommend a good fighting game on the PS3 for a beginner? (I tried BlazBlue but it caused nothing but confusion for me)

Okay I play a game Spore right and you evolve through stages from cell-creature-tribe-civilisation-space. Okay the thing is civilisation stage is where you own a city and you claim spice derricks and create your city with buildings you made or someone else did( ill just point out that in spore you create everything from-cars,boats,planes,creatures,buildings,spaceships and more using over 1000 parts.) Anyway so in civ stage you create a city that brings income that you then use to buy vechiles that allow you to go attack or ally other cities-its like a minni RTS gameand you are supposed to overtake the whole planet eventially. Okay thing is me and my freinds keep trying to decide who is better at civ stage becuase Spore is a massivley singleplayer online game in the fact that you are always versing other player created content wether it be a vechile or creature ect but the player created content is conrolled by the computer so I cannot verse my mates to see who's better at the stategy and stuff. So I have been looking at online RTS games for the last few months, I'm tossing up between Command & Conquer 4 - although it hasn't got many good reveiws and most think it is lame-, Supreme comander 2 - People think its not to RTS'y anymore and that it isn't that good or Starcraft ll - which isn't out yet but looks pomising. Which should I buy?

Hrm... there aren't too many JRPGs on the PS3, and even fewer that would be good for a beginner. Final Fantasy XIII is pretty accessible. As for fighting games, I'm nuts for Tekken, and I think Tekken 6 is one of the best in the series, if not the best. You might also check out the upcoming Super Street Fighter IV. It only costs $40 and looks to be pretty excellent.

Oh yes, I've played Fallout 3 as well (awesome game), and as it turns out I didn't completely suck at it. If you know any games around the turn of the century it would help a ton.

So, I missed both of these games when they came out but now I think it may be time to buy one...so Battlefield Bad Company 2 or Bioshock 2? I was really psyched for Bioshock 2 when it was first coming out but after reading the reviews and seeing how fast its popularity faded I was a little disappointed. Is it really good but just didn't get the popularity it deserved? Also is Bad Company 2 different enough from Modern Warfare 2 because I'm pretty bored of it? Just making sure:)

Thanks for the answers in advance.

Bad Company 2 is fantastic! It is a very different experience from MW2. Most of the modes are objective based and they really require a lot more teamwork than MW2 did. It makes for a very fun experience. If you get it on the PS3 shoot me a friend request. My friends and I are playing it all the time.

I've been looking and looking for something in the free-to-play mmorpg market...but I keep coming up short. I would very much value some recommendations. What I'm looking for is something a little different than the fantasy grind-a-thons that I keep coming across. I'm a fan of extensive character customization, be it loads of classes, skill trees or whatever. Also story, plot and an interesting world really gets to me. Finally, even though I tend to solo, I enjoy a player community that isnt just a bunch of gold sellers setting up random confusing shops everywhere. Other bonuses would include something a little cross genre, say an RTS element. Looking for originality, complex character customization, and depth of story. Help?!?!?

And the Game of the Year Edition is coming out on May 11th. So, it'll have the past DLC included, and the GotY Edition has a 3D mode - the game comes with two of the red/blue 3D glasses.

I think Red Dead Redemption will be the better game by far. Prince of Persia, even if it turns out good, will probably be a much shorter and shallower game. Check out the Red Dead Redemption videos I posted earlier in the thread.:)

Oh! rragnaar, you look different! :P Back on topic... I respectively disagree, the previous Prince of Persia games weren't shallow nor that short. So if you've played the previous ones (and liked them) i suggest you get Prince of Persia. But if you didn't like the previous games or even played them (and like rockstar games), then i suggest you Red Dead Redemption.

I didn't mean to imply they were shallow, just that the game would be shorter and have less depth than RDR, simply because RDR looks huge. I like Prince of Persia just fine.:)

I'd say go for Gears of War 2. It's a great game all around and Horde mode is totally awesome. There's always a lot of people playing it so you'll always get into matches plus you can also play multiplayer offline with bots and friends. It's also great to play through campaign mode in co-op.

Yes, but then again i beat the game once and plus i got the money for tf2 in the first place. But then again, my friends always tell me to get it...

Hey guys, I'm looking for some old retro action SNES and Genesis gaming, and would like some recommendations from all your old farts like me. I'm looking for side scrolling action, like Alien 3, Super Metroid, Choplifter, stuff like that. Here's what I have for the SNES so far:

  • Super Metroid
  • Actraiser
  • Super Star Wars
  • Yoshi's Island
  • Secret of Mana, Evermore
  • Blackthorne
  • Super Punch-out!
  • Choplifter III
  • Crono Trigger
  • Final Fantasy III
  • Super Contra III

...and a few more I may be missing. Here's my Genesis collection.

  • Secret of Vermillion
  • Shadow Dancer
  • Subterrania
  • Shinobi III
  • Gunstar Heroes
  • Alladin
  • Mercs
  • Sega 6 pak
  • Sonic 2
  • Alien 3

So what are some other good games I'm missing? I know there's a few out there. Thanks!
