Re: Favorite video game?

My husband played it on the pc and said the graphics are wonderful, but otherwise he says it's not that good a game. He said that it's very short and there is no replay value.

I think someone just got a little confused over the conversation. The thread is titled "favorite video game" and if you're not paying attention and just see someone posting "nintendo wii" you'd think that was their answer to the thread question, and not an answer to a previously posted question inside the thread. I guess that's why we use the quote option to answer these questions so no one's confused.

I didn't think so at all. Each level takes you more than an hour easily and theres like 8 levels, not bad imo

Re: Favorite video game?

each level doesn't take an hour, but they sure as heck don't take ten minutes either. especially if you play the way i do like when i play the force unleashed, and destroy everything i can to get extra stuff in order to bring the game closer to full completion.

Re: Favorite video game?

i like a game with a good replay value. And in general I like games that give you a lot of freedom, like, no storyline to be stuck with, or the possibility to not follow it, and play your own way. Also a range of different characters to choose from, to make your team, not necessarily just good characters. I like to be able to hire the mean guys too.

Uncharted Waters : New Horizons
was a good title for that on the SNES back in the 2D games era. Not much of a graphics game, but requires a lot of strategy and memory. It's even better if you can make tables for certain things, else you get lost quickly.

Do you play Animal Crossing? Its a game where you live in a town and spend the day interacting with your animal neighbors and decorating your house.

I never tried it, but my daughter really likes it (she's 14). I watched her play it a few times, it's cute. I don't know if I could really spend hours on it, but I guess I could try.

Which other open-end games did you try besides this one and Sims?

Re: Favorite video game?

Well, even though it was a very long time ago, I used to play a lot of Pilotwings64. Fun times, but I exhasted all possible means with that game long ago. I'm missing a few perfect socres I think, but I lacked skill in getting them.

Re: Favorite video game?

Anybody tryed DarkStar One? Thats a nice Sci-fi open ended game that can be played by both kids, adolescents and adults. Meaning... No blood, no swearing, but alot of great action and pretty graphics.

He said one of the levels took an hour, the rest were easy, and he finished the game in about 4 1/2 hours, and on his second play-through he did it in 3 1/2 hours. But then he's super excellent at games, so maybe it's just his skill getting him through so fast? He's a big fan of Ghostbusters, but he said that the game is deffinately not worth 50 dollars, it's more of a 15-20 dollar game maybe. He said that the game has no development. You're just this guy and you're not even really in the story, you're just sorta there.

I haven't played it myself, this is all just what he said.

Re: Favorite video game?

Ghostbusters looks like a rent, if anything. Doesn't look bad, just doesn't interest me, funny as the movies I've seen were.

Just picked up Assassins Creed yesterday, and am loving it. I've heard it gets repetitive, but I'm close to the third of nine targets, and its not bothering me yet. Its a ton of fun, and a very original game--the story and the setting make for a great game, and fun gameplay adds to it.

I don't know, something about being able to run around of the rooftops of Jerusalem, Damascus, and Acre, looking for some one to interrogate, pickpocket, or eavesdrop on, so I can assassinate some slave trader or Templar, is pretty awesome.

Ah, by Ubisoft. Just viewed the video for the sequel. The graphics are too gorgeous. Game looks awesome indeed. Is the 1st one as good? Is that the one you mean?

Very awesome game.  The monotonous thing about playing, is trying to find all the flags in the different cities to get those achievements.  I found this site, that really, really helps.

http://www.assassinscreed-maps.com/Maps.htm

It shows you where the flags are at, plus, you can check off which ones you already got, since it'll probably take you a few days to get them all.  Just make sure your browser isn't set to delete all your cookies whenever you exit out of the browser, and it'll save the ones you've already checked off.  It also shows where all the Templars are at, for that achievement, as well, but it doesn't have check boxes for them.

Yeah, I've got the first one. Second comes out this November.

It is very good. Gameplay can get repetitive, because there are only like 4 investigation mission types, Pickpocket, Eavesdrop, Interrogate, and Informer, and you need 2 and later 3 completed to assassinate some one. So lots of each by the end of the game. But the first is fun and the graphics and environments are pretty awesome. So fun to run around ancient cities like Jerusalem or Damascus. And story is great.

And yeah, the second looks BEAUTIFUL.

Re: Favorite video game?

Shame, no one has so much as mentioned the MGS Series...by far my favorite. Remind me to snipe you all for that later... Halo 1-3 are great, although the 13-under crowd on online multiplayer get on my nerves though, takes a bit of the fun out. Call of Duty 4 has excellent replay value, online and campaign. I also have recently picked up Army of Two, which Ralin stated earlier is a really fun game when you have 2 people to play with.

Re: Favorite video game?

Army of Two is ok... when you can get the control of the damn camera, lol. Apparently I'm fine for aiming and shooting but I still got to get the hang of the camera thing. tongue

Werda, for Assassin's Creed, do you think the Wii version is worth it? I was wondering if I should get it.

Re: Favorite video game?

Sorry for the late reply.

Um, I have no idea what the Wii version is like, or much about the Wii period, so its hard to say. Assuming its similar enough to the 360/PS3 version, story and gameplay wise, I'd say so. Also depending on how much you're willing to pay. But buying used at Gamestop gives you a week in which you can return it, or it used to anyways--you could look into that option.

I just know Wii versions are often pretty different from the other consoles versions, so I have no idea--maybe youtube gameplay?

Re: Favorite video game?

i wasn't even aware a wii version of AC existed. as for now, my sister bought The Conduit and it's supposedly the best FPS on the wii as of now, which is impressive for a Wii title. i'll try it out later.

Re: Favorite video game?

Thanks Werda. Tried on youtube and couldn't find any better than a fake Wii ad, so I guess we'll have to rent it and see. The other versions seem really cool, even for the first, but the sequel seems like pure eyecandy. I'll have to see if they'll have a PC version our machines here can handle.

Re: Favorite video game?

I would REALLY like to recommend DEAD SPACE for all you sci-fi fans. OMG it's amazing. If you like the Alien films or the Doom videogame series, you'll enjoy the story. It's scarier then most horror games I've played too... really one heck of an experience! I had a hard time playing in the dark, haha.

To Resident Evil 4 fans, it plays very similarly control wise, but I'd have to say it does it better (you can walk and shoot).
PLUS the main character, Isaac Clark is VERY Boba like... you don't see his face until the very end of the game, he wears a pretty awesome armor (RIG) and unique helmet, and appears a bit stoic & remains silent (doesn't have single line of dialogue, lol).

AWESOME AMAZING GAME PLAY IIIIIIIT!!!
