Uncharted 2 is among the best. Not sure about worst, I loved Crysis but could barely make it through 2 hours of Crysis 2 without getting bored.

Single player, multiplayer has no narrative so it's hard to convince myself to plow the hours in to get decent.

Loved the ending. Very similar to Prince of Persia (2008), where the hero sacrifices the point of the whole quest out of love -- the emotions of the game defeat the objective, making it a more moving work of art as opposed to simply a game.

I'd say for me it's been about 50-50, maybe 60-40 new to used. I buy lots of sports games new, along with AAA titles (Uncharted, God of War, Bioshock, etc.), but I get a lot of titles that are a little less heralded used to try out, or older games where the used prices are dirt cheap.

I sell my games when I'm not going to play them anymore (hey, radical idea -- why not reach a Pareto optimal solution by letting someone who values the game at $30 have it when I now value it at $0), so I've always benefitted from the used-games market. I also buy perhaps 1/3 of my games on the used game market, although nowadays I'm pretty happy to pre-order the AAA titles I want, play them through, and then sell them on eBay.

I might phrase this another way, which games would you pay full price for.

I actually shell out the full $60 for Madden and FIFA year in and year out, because even if they make only marginal improvements, I still manage to get dozens if not hundreds of hours of entertainment out of those titles. Of course, I'll typically sell them on eBay for like $30, so really I'm only paying $30 net for the amount I play.

Wait a year and it'll be $150 because the new PS4 is coming out this holiday season.

this has just become milking at this point. the series was wrapped up with GOW3.... there was absolutely no reason to make a prequel game.Geminon
I think I agree with this to a certain extent . . . on the other hand, compared to series like COD or Halo, we've still got a while to go before God of War gets old.

Are you playing on the hardest difficulty setting? I also found the GOW series to be relatively pain free on ordinary difficulties (minus some aggravating boss battles).
