How many stars do you give the game you are playing right now?

    • Fallout 4: 4 stars
      I know there are a lot of complaints that it lacks in the rpg department (especially dialogue options) but I love scavenging material to build settlements.

    • Total War: Warhammer: 4.5 stars
      First time I've ever touched the Warhammer universe but it is one of the best strategy games I've played in a long time.

    • Witcher 3 Blood & Wine: 5 stars
      The Witcher 3 and all expansions are the examples on what games should be (imo of course). Only downside to this expansion is that it means no more Witcher now.

  • Just finished Twilight Princess HD, would give it a 4 out of 5 stars.

    It's not the best game, or even the best Zelda ever, but I really do love this game.

  • Odin Sphere Leifthrasir improves so much on the original that I already thought was near perfect. So far, 5/5. Have to take a few days break whenever I finish a characters story though.

    Other than that just waiting for Zero Time Dilemma, wish I got that watch preorder

    Just beat Dying Light for the first time and i was really surprised on how much i enjoyed it.
    Expectations was fairly low considering Dead Island. I played most of it with a friend and
    it was way more fun than to play solo single player! I recommend 1-2 friends to get the full
    enjoyment out of the single player. The quests has "meat" on them, meaning that it feels like
    you're impacting the story when you do side-quests. The only caveat is the gathering quests
    but if you're like me and can't progress without picking everything clean, most of the gathering
    quests are completed immediately. The last boss was frustrating and annoying since you'll die
    multiple times not by skill but on reaction time which i suck at.

    (Images if you want to use them:

  • Playin through Zelda Ocarina of Time for the first time. I'd give it about 3.5 out of 5 stars. I understand some consider it to be one of the greatest games of all time but, I dont love it. I mean it's ok. Probably wont play through it again.

  • @matt Really a matter of playing it at the time for me, when it came out it was really the first of its kind. Solid game but far from the best ever made like most people say.

  • Halo 5. I would give it 3.5 stars. Very competent. Best mechanics and one of the best weapon/vehicle sets.

    However Warzone is not engaging for me; It feels muddied and confusing. I would much prefer a good game of BTB and due to Warzone that can't happen like it use to.

    Arena is fun from a mechanics perspective but the maps have ZERO character, especially the remixed maps.

  • @Tommynaut21 I understand what you mean. I remember that time. My cousin had an N64, I didn't. I remember he got the gold cart and a shitty mad catz gold controller to match. I remember he wasnt all that stoked on it at the time and that pretty much set my expectations from there on out. It's pretty epic, but after A Link to the Past and Link's Awakening our expectations were super high. My biggest gripe is the over world has been pretty barren. Nighttime falls and it's the same two skeletons pop up over and over again. The 2D Zeldas had more action in that regard. To be honest I havent really loved any of the 3D Zeldas all that much. I like Wind Waker the best, but hit the Jingle map translation quest and ran out of rupees. I had already scavenged all the hidden treasure so my only option was to grind for rupees which didn't sound appealing so I just stopped.

  • Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright Eugenics/5
    I beat the game a month ago, even then it doesn't beat Conquest or even Awakening in terms of enjoyability. I'm still playing it purely to get all the male MU supports and every single adult pairing so I can create the perfect lunatic team for my next play through without thinking who hasn't married yet.

    Tomb Raider (2013) 4/5
    Solid game all-in-all. The whole setting is pretty laughable when the samurai show up. Not a fan at those forced QTE events.

  • Valkyria Chronicles - 4 stars. I love strategy games and this does the genre justice, plus there's genuine moments that make me laugh. More customization and more varied routes for upgrades would bring it up to 5 stars.

    Pokemon Red - 4.5 stars. I started re-playing through this thanks to Brandon Plays Pokemon. I'm surprised by how much I'm still enjoying the game but there's a few tweaks and fixes that the 2nd gen implements that I'm really missing. Plus it feels wrong playing without Wobbuffet in my party.

  • I played The Evil Within for 6 hours straight today on Huber's recommendation. I love how the game controls and the shotgun is glorious. Ammo is so scarce and punching your way through enemies isn't really an option. Every time you kill a monster it feels meaningful, so for now I'd rate it 5/5 stars.

  • Overwatch.... when I'm with a good team it's a 5 star game. Other times its a 4 star game. I love those characters and it's feels good to play, so even when I'm annoyed it's not too terrible. But it does shine when playing with friends.

    Bayonetta 2 is a crazy 4.5 star game. It's just too weird not to love, for me anyway.

  • Dishonored remastered and I would give it 3.5 of 5 just due to lack of fun stealth toys which I hope its fix in the future but outside that and general AI weirdness its a good game.

  • Grand Kingdom, an easy 3 1/2 stars.

  • Kingdom hearts 1.5 remix - I have some issues with it but it's still a solid 4 stars
    Pokémon Alpha Sapphire - One of the best Pokémon games imo 4 stars
    Persona 4 Golden - This game has sold me on Persona 5 and makes me want to play Persona 3 and Tokyo Mirage Sessions. The dungeons and combat could be better therefore it's only a 4.5 stars.

  • I'm replaying P4 to ramp up the hype for the P5 release, and maybe it's the sheen of nostalgia but I love everything about this game. Combat gets a little repetitive at times, but honestly as a player I care so much more about the characters than the dungeoning and so I actually appreciate that the game doesn't punish me for not constantly grinding for levels to gear up for the next boss. It's barely July in my game (7/5? around there) and I'm already full social link with Strength, and ramping up quickly with most others. It makes me care about the characters and really get immersed in believable small-town high school life, complete with little hints of well-intentioned mischief here or there. Easy 5/5.

  • Pokemon Blue - 4/5.
    As I said in another thread, I took a page out of Jones' book and started working my way through a series I'm quite unfamiliar with. I absolutely adore my team right now and I squeal with delight every time I come across a Pokemon I recognize :D

  • Persona 2:Innocent Sin- 4/5. I want to give it a 5/5 but it was hard to get in to in the beginning.

  • Project X Zone 2 - 4.5 stars. I love this series, seeing all these different characters come together is a dream come true. Not since the days of Marvel vs Capcom have I felt this much joy with a crossover game. I love being able to match Phoenix Wright with Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine or have Kiryu and Majima from the Yakuza series team up with June Lin Milliam of Star Gladiator and have them suggest to her to use a stripper pole to dance fight with OR have Lucina and Chrom team up with Ulala because of all the dance energy they will generate. Teaming characters up with one another will trigger new dialogue between the group which either result in a nice nod to either series or some humorous dialogue like if you pare Ryu and Ken with Segata Sanshiro, Ryu will ask Segata about his rough training regiment to which Segata answers "The path to victory can only be achieved by playing Sega Saturn" which Ken then questions with a bewildered look.
    Sure the game's story isn't anything to write home about as the main selling factor is the cross over but if you like having a good hearty laugh, love flashy looking combat and enjoy video game music then Project X Zone 2 is for you.

    Excuse the image dump and the quality of the following images.

  • It's Overwatch, so 4.5 Stars
