We all have favorite games, but can we admit its flaws and things we dont like?

Mine is Bioshock

  • After the big twist, the game feels like it lacks the same puncht the rest of the way. Still fun to play, but nothing big or intriguing really story wise.
  • Going back to Bioshock after infinite really shows how the gameplay has become kinda clunky. Switching to plasminds is more of a hassle in the first.

How about you guys?

I don't have a one favorite game but let's just say for this last gen. DOTA 2: Very very steep learning curve and some of the community can be assholes.

Metroid Prime Trilogy

It was limited edition so more people can't play it unless they purchase all three games seperately.

Streets of Rage 2: I can't play other beat 'em ups without comparing them to it, and that's just not fair. The whole time I'm just picking out flaws, and repeatedly keep on saying how Streets of Rage is so much better.

All of my fav games are perfect :P

ego trip aside I guess I might as well do my top 3 lol

TLOU- Some iffy graphic moments, one moment the game looks amazing then some parts you can tell they cut some corners.

Skyrim- was a buggy mess at launch

MGS 3- it ended

Persona 4 (Golden) does tend to really attract a bit of the weeaboo, desperate person crowd because of its over reliance on the social sim side of its game. Those people can be so annoying. It doesn't blend the two sides of the game very well, and the dungeon crawling can be quite boring at times.

I'm actually pretty certain Half Life 1 is perfect.

 

Half Life 2 on the other hand. Still very good, but my opinion on Half Life 2 is that just about every chapter should have had about 5-10 minutes chopped off. Most just went on a little too long. They could funnel all the extra minutes into doubling the length of Ravenholm. That'd be cool.

deus ex 1. it was an ugly game at launch and its a very ugly game now. also when it launched the loading times were pretty ick. the first part (liberty island) was also poor. that was the demo also and it nearly put me off the game. good thing all the reviews said it was amazing and persuaded me to soldier on.

Goldeneye 007.

 

Why in the world do these guards keep spawning in the bunker....and why is there no wifi multiplayer? ( I know N64 doesn't have a multiplayer capability, but still)

 

Why doesn't the first person campain have replay value?

 

Why didn't the citadel get made into an actual level? :evil:

I actually don't think I've played a FPS more times through than Goldeneye :P I really liked the difficulty scaling. It wasn't simply "oh, these guys all hit harder, and take more damage", but putting the difficulty up meant you had to complete more objectives.

 

I miss that part of Rare... I miss Free Radical... I don't care about Crytek UK :P

Hhhmm.. ok. I'm loving Dragon's Crown right now. Game is awesome, but I do have a few gripes about it.

1. You get tons of loot when you adventure. Some of it works well for you character and other can't be used. Why can't we equip our Allies with new weapons? I think you should be able upgrade their weapons and gear. Then after you are done with them, you can strip them of all their gear and dismiss them.

2. You allies never level. You resurrect them and they will fight by your side, but you XP doesn't help to increase their level. It would be nice if they leveled at least 5 levels.

If XCOM: EW fixes these bugs and adds base defense it will be my new favorite.

Let's go with multiple games:

  • Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay - the gunplay is mediocre.
  • Otogi: Myth of Demons - i like a challenge, but the difficulty is ludicrously huge, to the point of f*cking insanity.
  • Planescape: Torment - the combat is shit.
  • Panzer Dragoon Saga - the length is to short (roughly 12 - 15 hours), considering the game is on 4 CDs.
  • Xenogears - the gigantic, convoluted maze towards the end. It's absolutely painful.
  • Ninja Gaiden Black - say what you will about stories in hack 'n slash - action games, but this one in NGB is incredibly boring, i had vastly more fun with DMC3's plot.
  • Deus Ex 1 - the gunplay and AI is shit. (good thing mods fixed that tho)

I have a ton of GOATs, but i can't think of any negative aspects at the moment.

If you can appreciate games based on the time and system they released on, then graphics are never a problem.

As for everything els, PS1/Saturn JRPGs shit on anything from past, and later generations. The quantity of quality titles simply offer a better library.

Not to mention that the 2D ones are aesthetically pleasing, especially the likes of Valkyrie Profile.

Basically but I said Spirtual Successor because Monolith Soft didn't have the rights to Xenogears and the Xenogears team only formed Monolith Soft because Square wouldn't let them make more Xenogears titles.

True and while not quite on Xenogears level(what RPG is...) the Xenosaga trilogy was very good imo. Even with Episode II's annoyingly cheap combo system that made B level mooks almost invincible until you hit them with a certain combo and made bosses rage worthy.

Yeah sure, it does have replay value. But from my perspective, I beat the hell out of the game for many years so in that sense, my perspective is fixed. Hoping for a remake in HD to replay the first person campaign again.
