  • @-Jak- at the risk of being called Kyle Bosman, I personally wouldn't consider the Uncharted games platformers or action adventures.

    @Kaminski The franchise includes those elements here and there, but for the most part Uncharted is a very linear and cinematic TPS.

    It's essentially the video game equivalent of a roller coaster. Not that it's a bad thing. It's great for storytelling and extravagant set pieces.



  • 'Linear' isn't a genre — it's open world games that all congeal into the same generic title. Action-adventures before eighth gen had a much larger breadth, from very structured stuff like Uncharted to puzzley explorative games like Zelda, which resemble JRPGs in that they have a constant overworld that allows one to revisit previous areas.

    @Haru17 "Walking" isn't a genre either, but they sure as Hell made it one.



  • @Art I know, I've played Xenoblade too.



  • Persona 4 Golden,
    Call of Duty: World at War,
    Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag,
    Fallout 3,
    Silent Hill 2.



  • @Kaminski I mentioned Uncharted to kill a few birds with one stone. To fit under the 5 game limit.

    I like action adventures, platformers. And cinematic games can be cool when played moderately. Along with other things that make U4 great.



  • Super Mario World
    Mass Effect 2
    Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
    Diablo II
    Final Fantasy X



  • Portal 2
    Super Mario World
    Jak and Daxter
    Pokemon Emerald
    Team Fortress 2

    I'd never considered this before, but it makes sense that these 5 all have a certain levity to them.

  • @Doctor-Professor I really dig the character designs in Hoenn. They're the most relatable characters in the series to me.



  • These aren't necessarily my all time favourites but I think they

    Rayman Origins - Give me something that's just FUN, with some killer gameplay.
    Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door - Be funny and humourous and change up a well known universe.
    Bastion - I love hub worlds that gradually build up as you progress through the game. Also, have a fucking amazing soundtrack.
    Heavy Rain - I do like pretty graphics and realism sometimes. And I do like a bloody good yarn and mystery.
    PT - I like to be scared shitless and to figure shit out.

    This is bloody difficult.
