Great job by the artists especially but also the writers. I can't say much about gameplay itself yet, but I can shoot fireballs from my hands, so I think it's okay. thumb.gif

I'm so glad I bought/played Infinite - I wish I bought it at release

I still can't stop thinking about it. Even with it's so-so gameplay, I will probably replay it again soon. I can't bring myself to un-install it. I get that same feeling after watching an amzing movie - one that you probably won't watch again or watch many more times, but you want to either keep it on your hard drive or buy it on dvd/bluray just to keep

I'm sorry, but those that couldn't finish Infinite are just plain shallow people imo

I gave up on Saints Row The Third - the sillyness just wore off too quickly and the "open world" just feels like a waste to me. makes me want to re-install GTAIV and mod it out for an immersive city experience

might do Max Payne 3 next, since many say it's short - or just go with Dishonored

Infinite has a 2001 A Space Odyssey appeal....it stays with you regardless of your like or dislike for it.

well, all FPS i ever bought.. COD don't remember what, half-life 1 and 2 (highly overrated), crysis 2, halo.

Loved Mass Effect (the whole saga), Assassin's Creed 2 (others make me puke), Resident evil, in PC platform
Final Fantasy VII VIII IX X X-2 XII XIII XIII-2 with my PS3 (and 2). Metal Gear 2 and 4. Really LOVED them!!

It's ok he said FPS, Half-Life isn't a true FPS, in that it also has story, puzzles, atmosphere, and fun.

I never finished any Half Life either. But I didn't say anything in fear of getting boycotted so hard I won't ever come on OCN again.

Or banned.

don't worry, me neither smile.gif

I was either too young, too naive to what games were out there, or just not into gaming enough back when HL1 and HL2 came out. I tried to start the series on HL Source, but it just felt too clunky and weird (from it's age). Then tried HL2 and I just couldn't really get attached to it - felt like I was missing out on big plot elements

and they felt like they would be super long, so I just decided to move on to other things

not a PC game but I forced myself to play through 3/4's of Red Dead Redemption this summer before putting it down. I just found the gameplay really boring.

I found the end to be spectacular! This is another of the few games I actually completed.
