• RE: The EZA Forums Top 50 Games of the 2010s!

    Been a busy weekend for me!

    God of War, This game blew me out of my socks. I remember getting it and thought "well I guess I'm just gonna beat up some gods while grunting a bit". This game are really one of those type of "It's all about the Journey". You as a player could tell that this was just the first part in a series (especially if you are well acquainted with Norse Mythology. I got sucked in and couldn't wait to see what was around the next corner. I "accidentally" managed to plan a cruise to Norway the week after I finished the game which made the whole thing even more amazing in my eyes.

    It's not much that can be said that already hasn't been said, but the combat felt amazing and really heavy in away I hadn't felt combat in a game before. Each hit felt like a freight train hitting and the environments all being different and exciting, all to a stellar soundtrack. I hope Ragnarok will be at least as good!

    The Last of Us Where do I even start with this one? I borrowed this originally of a friend as I'm normally not much for scary games. This game was really a rollercoaster. It kept me on my toes, had me laughing, screaming, panicing and all those fun emotions, yet I couldn't stop playing! I cared for Ellie in a way I hadn't really done for a videogame character before. Almost in a fatherly way I wanted to keep her close and whisper that everything was gonna be ok. When the remaster got released on PS4 I had to pick it up right away. Also, the game got probably one of the best openings in a game, like, ever?

  • RE: Final Fantasy XVI

    @naltmank FF14 generally borrows from multiple FF games and incorporates major references to those previous games by twisting the material to fit FF14.

    The FF3 reference comes about with the fact that there's a crystal tower raid, and you fight Xande and the cloud of darkness, the big bads of FF3.

    They definitely name drop or incorporate lots of classic bosses throughout FF14 in general, but FF3 did receive a bit more attention than others.

    I hope this scratches my FF9 itch. It going back to fantasy has me really hyped. Don't get me wrong, I love the steampunk-y style as well, but I just miss a fantasy base main title, its been too long.

    I wasn't really planning on putting Skyrim on my list to begin with. However, then I realised that it had been installed on my PS4 since the release of the port. I put in about 300 hours on PS3 and now I just got 1 trophy left on the PS4 version. It it one of those games where I just jump in for a couple hours now and again to mess around for a bit, do some missions or explore some more. I hadn't done the DLCs until the PS4 version which gave me some new content which I enjoyed. I just really like the atmosphere of running around in the snow, listening to the amazing music and gather some hides. So it wouldn't be fair to leave it out. Once I got the last trophy though, I don't think I'll be coming back to it.

    Oh wow! well my guess went out the window on the first entry x)

    Mass Effect 2 are one of those games that I like to go back to now and again just because I enjoyed it so much. Back when the game came out, one of my friends kept bugging me "you have to play these!!" and I was like "meh, maybe". Then one Friday he came home to me and installed both games on my PC. I ended up spending the next two weekends playing through the games, whilst playing the second game I even got asked by my mum "what film I kept watching". I didn't get to play the DLCs until like 2014 but I must say Shadowbroker was a great DLC that is definitely worth a playthrough if you haven't.

  • RE: Formula One

    Did anyone else feel exhausted after the race today? All those crashes and red flags! Would of loved for Ricciardo to get his podium, but awesome for Albon to shine for once and show that he belongs there.

    I'm glad that we got a track as addition instead of another street cricuit, but it felt like this one was a little too narrow which I think is partly to blame for the accidents that we saw. Now we get a break next weekend, but will be fun to see what happens in Russia in 2 weeks time.

    Top 10 HYPE!

    Don't know if I dare to do a full guess on top 10, but I'm pretty sure we will see Mass Effect 2, Persona 5 and God Of War in top 3.

    @e_zed_eh_intern Not sure how that is being condescending to be honest. I answered a short question with a short answer.

    I'm not a huge fan of the Red Dead series, I enjoyed Revolver when I was younger, Red Dead Redemption while impressive and beautifully told, was in my opinion mostly a very boring experience.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 on the other hand (while not perfect) improves on pretty much every area. The game is a technical masterpiece, it's as close as we've ever been to a world that actually feels lived in. For a game so long, I was hooked on these characters and the story. Just where it goes and seeing the downfall of the camp. And the camp itself is amazing, going back whenever you want to feel the mood at that situation. On top of that it does one of the best jobs I've ever seen in a game of linking up to another game.

    Again, I didn't vote for the game, I still found the gameplay itself to be pretty rough, just all feels very automatic but the same issues were present in Red Dead Redemption. The only thing I would say that Red Dead Redemption does better is the going to mexico scene which 2 tries but doesn't really nail. Although it has other scenes which are maybe as good, just not the same scenario.
