Games you just couldn't be bothered to finish that other people raved about... - Page 81

Far Cry 3 was an improvement over FC2, but that's not saying much!

Having people everywhere and carts going to a from citys makes the world real for me. I spent most of my time exploring. Finding the bounderies of the world. Something that will get your butt handed to you in a game like LotRO. Just started Skyrim. Theres something I don't understand. Why tease us constantly about all these other kingdoms and never let us leave Cyrodiil or Skyrim to explore them?

LotRO Classes were weird to begin with. Constant gimping made all but two classes unplayable. IMHO.

Spore Space era completely wrecked the game for me. It just sucks.
Neverwinter Night My game saves kept getting fracked up. Eventually gave up.
Half-Life I just sucked at FPS back then.
Civilization V Can't even get half way through. And I"ve finished all of the others.
Final Fantasy 9 Can't explain why.

A game I wish I hadn't finished. Two Worlds The end was kinda, meh. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Also when he rescued his Frank Frazetta (Elvira Mistress of the Dark clone) sister. Felt kinda creepy. Brother and Sister, eh? hmmsmiley02.gif

Words can't express how much I agree with you on the spores part, the game was fantastic, and then the Space era comes along and completely ruins the game.

As for games I could never beat:

The Witcher - The combat felt awful and the way the game progressed just felt weak,story wasn't too bad, but everything else made it unplayable.

Dragon Age - As amazing as the story telling and the progression system was, that crap combat system put me off completely, I can't stand MMORPG type combat systems, especially in a full fledged game.

System Shock 2 - No particular reason why I stopped, got it on Steam at release, the game is awesome and solid in every area, reminds me alot of the original Deus Ex, which is one of my all time favorite games. I'll definitely get back to it and beat it soon, when I get done with my current log of games.

I'm sad to hear the immersion mod didn't help FC3 at all... I figured immersion mod + hardest setting would give it a semi-decent second play. Guess i'll just run the DLC as my second play.

Shaking NPC's was the final straw with FC3.....it was holding on by a thread anyway for the whole 20 mins prior to encountering them.
Blood Dragon I heard was fantastic on the other hand....have yet to play it.

Windwaker, Twilight Princess, Skyward sword. I have all 3 and have never played windwaker, put about 5 hours into TP and about 1 hour in SS and cant be bothered to finish as I got bored. I also have one of the Mario games for Wii and have never played that either.

Its funny because as a kid I played the crap out of supermario 64 and ocarina of time/majoras mask. The new ones just don't interest me anymore.

I honestly haven't much cared for any of the 3D Zeldas, Much prefer the 2D ones. Link to the Past, Link's Awakening (Hands down fave), Oracle of Ages/Seasons, etc.

The combat system predates MMORPGs. It's taken from classic RPGs like Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights (though it may go back even further), except it's significantly less clunky and very, very simplified in comparison.

It's the trademark combat system of RPG's since the beginning of time. I big bar of options at the bottom of the screen... It was the only logical way for the system to be designed when being transferred over from pen & paper RPG's.

also, EQ came out 3 years before the first neverwinter. smile.gif
