    I just don't see Mass Effect as a game or as a series a shooter in any way. Ok, I mean, there IS shooting, sure, and quite a lot of it, too, but it's not like the main thing in the series. Not the first thing you would say or remember when asked to describe ME.



  • @thenerdtheword Noooo! I wanted to be the one to kill Goldeneye. It's close to unplayable these days, yet people hang onto it for the memories and nostalgia it brings. Nostalgia is powerful and beautiful but we're rating games, not memories.

    Love you Killer 7, you're quirky and weird. You however, aren't a shooter, so y'know... you gots to go.

    I really don't like the Stalker series. It's a game with many great ideas but nothing is executed as well as it could.

    Not as good as the first Modern Warfare and i don't like CoD games that much in general!



  • I'd like to add that I'm also sad that I didn't get the chance to be the one to kill Goldeneye, but I'm glad I'm not the only one that has taken the nostalgia googles off. Played the game for so many hours during my childhood, tried it once again two years ago, and it was a huge doze of reality.

    Played it for a while, and I didn't end up liking it a lot, specially since big part of the appeal is the MP, which is a downside for a hermit like me.

    It feels great to shoot a gun in Destiny, it truly does. Everything else in this game though? Ugh. The story basically doesn't exist, the characters aren't memorable, mission design (especially in vanilla Destiny) is a joke, and the fact they keep releasing high priced DLC with very little additional content is boggling. One of my biggest gaming disappointments as Bungie was hyping this game to all hell. Hopefully Destiny 2 is less about grinding than its predecessor.

    I continue my march to the sea, burning all Halo games to the ground and salting the earth.
    If I were to bother critiquing this game, I'd say that this is the game where Bungie started sacrificing the single player campaign for multiplayer, which I'm not a huge fan of in general.

    Again, jumped on the hype train, was heavily disappointed, never bought a CoD again, gave it away for a pack of danish waffles to my friend.



  • @Musou-Tensei Sounds like a pretty worthwhile exchange to me.

    Perfect Dark isn't as good as everyone's rose-tinted glasses make them think it is. It is a great touchstone of the form but it is far from the pinnacle. Kappa

    I am firmly in the Bosman camp with this game. The shooting doesn't feel good, the alarm drones are extremely annoying, connecting pipes gets really old really fast, the plot is pretentious, that ending.... I think everyone played the great opening sequence and then locked in their predetermined love for this game without viewing the rest through a critical eye.

    Not a bad game, just not deserving of the level of reverence it gets.



  • @Billy As someone who is re-playing through it for a third time with the remasters, I firmly disagree, but hey, that's what this game is all about. So hey, what game do you think is the best on this list? I'm uh... asking for a friend! Yeah, that's it.

    Edit: Nevermind, I got it!

    Just a revenge kill. Cue maniacal laughter.



  • @SabotageTheTruth Aw, where'd your keyboard-playing penguin go? And that is so awful! I was reading your post when it edited before my eyes to show you knocking mine out! And after my impassioned praise of it!

    And again, Bioshock is not a bad game, but I have a friend who got tattoos based on it and I personally just don't feel the love. For all the praise heaped on it, I just wasn't feeling it. To each their own, I suppose. Mine just happens to have clone commandos.



  • @Billy That's why you gotta make sure you put in two, bruh.



  • @Billy Love and respect, forever and always. Bioshock is an extremely decisive franchise, one that I hold pretty dear. Definitely has a lot of plot points that are viewed as pretentious but I just love the fact a shooter (which generally is a genre not known for amazing stories) tries something so ambitious and mixes in real world concepts, such as those presented by Ayn Rand, and tries to tackle them. I prefer Infinite for diving into quantum mechanics which is an idea I don't believe any game has really interjected into its story, at least not as a central theme.

    I do feel kinda dirty for killing a game I haven't played. May that Mandalorian theme song play at the game's funeral.



  • @SabotageTheTruth Haha, thanks. Oh, and you've likely seen this, but for everyone else, Bosman's scathing indictment of Bioshock starts at 7:59

    Youtube Video



  • @Billy I love Bosman to death, but whenever he goes on his Bioshock rants, I always remember this is the same man that hated Mario Maker because of the shadows.



  • @parasitepaladin I know... I've only myself to blame for only putting one egg in the basket.



  • Mr. Bosman confuses the hell out of me.
