..

Just Cause and Saint row are games, which are means as big unrealistic jokes.. Far cry 1 is differend game, form different studio, that Far cry 2, 3 is trying to be more.

Open world games.. I like

Open world games.. I like "Just Cause 2" , but with reservations.. its complete an utter -silly fun- the story is worthless, its just "kill this guy" or "destory this base" etc.. with some variations like a car chase where you have to destroy a car before it reaches a certain point (these missions really show where the game has been designed with consoles in mind, hard to do with a mouse/keyboard).. But Just Cause has bonus's for destroying every part of base.. the 5 year old in me loves that..I see on map the base im in has 5% left.. I have to find that gas tank or ? that needs to be blown up.. Saints Row 2 was also like this, even more over the top SILLY, giant rabbit costumes and such (plain old fun though) but it fell apart as a PC game when it uses vehicular combat of any kind.. they just control like crap with mouse/keyboard. About 45 minutes into the game you have to chase a heli without losing it.. with Up/down/left/right speed, slowdown etc.. basically impossible to do with a keyboard setup.. GAME OVER.. you can not skip it.. to go to another mission..

great silly fun games.. Farcry was a bit more PC .. yes some sci-fi monsters and genetic stuff.. but it was open world in the best sense.. I hate the consolization of my PC games.. to many are getting impossible to play with my old standard keyboard/mouse.. in the last 10 years PC games have almost eliminated game pads or joysticks (flight games withstanding). Console ports are bringing them back.. the local BEST BUY doesn't even have a PC game pad or joystick ( not even the MS ones)..

Farcry

Farcray 2 I never finished. It was too repetitive and unfocused. I spent hours and hours running "Go to this camp, kill all people" until I saw the man behind the curtain and just stopped. I did enjoy roaming around the countryside. Like most sandbox games, that wore off in about a week and I was left looking for something meaningful to do.

I don't own Farcry 3, but I want it. I'd like to see how they improved on 2 - general consensus is that it is a great improvement.

I really liked Rage , right

I really liked Rage , right up to the FORCED racing crap.. while the racing was done "ok" it was extremely boring to me.. so bad I couldnt finish the game because of it.. But I do agree, it was not new to me, it was Borderlands in a realistic coat and a much less cartony story.. but still a normal Id game, all glitz, run and gun and not much else. If not for the racing YOU HAD TO DO, i would have enjoyed it. The tech difficulties it had never bothere me like so many. Far Cry (original ) is one of my all time favorite games, unlimited exploring, go where you want, fight who you want, how you want.. thats ALL ME! My understanding 3 is the same.. (its on sale on STEAM yesterday (and till noon) still trying to decide if Im picking it up) Crysis.. again.. like the series.. the full 3D floating space ship crap with aliens looking like background that can almost one shot ya.. did not like.. rest of game.. fun, Crysis 3... origin.. did not purchase and will not (my understanding is it did considerably less (pc side) going Orgin only.. Bioshock.. first sale Im grabbing.. loved first one, liked 2nd.. and the people seem to really like the 3rd. I am a bit worried it will be a COD movie with me shooting.. that I wont like. Crysis was one of the best (make something happen in distance (mt falling!!! it adds to story, but is not part of game really) this game plays itself while i ride along stuff the COD games do.. do not like.

I know im a bit pumped for Bio.. price drop! common!

Rage had technology problems

Rage had technology problems with drivers at start , but this dont say anything about quality of game, there was such big hate for it.. such big was hype for Bioshock, both was stupid.

Now im playing Far cry 3 and this is future, good direction and evolution of genre.. At start to closed, too forced too story, but after that, it is better and better.. Still a bit generic and stereotypical, but still good. Combination of Far cry 3 and Stalker, would be near of holy grail of FPS.
Far cry 3 has also problems with terible GUI, stupid forced crafting.

Rage?

Original Bioshock (7/10) was a bit better more thoughts, more scary etc.. If you want to play, good shooter try S.T.A.L.K.E.R who is the king, or Rage which was also better. I hate todays reviewers, they should have 10/10 or 9/10 game every 3 months, so they usualy overrate some one piece.. because they havent balls to say, that todays game are 7/10 or worse..

Blech - Rage? That game is so derivative and crappy that I cannot even finish it. Now we're venturing into subjective territory, which is an argument neither of us can win :-).

I will say I rarely have emotional moments in games. The airport scene in Modern Warfare 2 was one. The end of BioShock Infinite was another.

I finished Bioshock infinite

I finished Bioshock infinite few minutes ago, nice props (scenery) and big nothing.. generic rambo shooter. This game was more boring that stealthy Dishonored (6/10), im giving 5/10.
At the end is 1 good, character flaw moment and 1 good though, its is realy crazy, that someone fell, that this is enough. During gameplay of stupid coridors Call of Duty like, story realy doesnt make sense.. and magic moment at the end a all is good? I will never accept such crapp.

Original Bioshock (7/10) was a bit better more thoughts, more scary etc.. If you want to play, good shooter try S.T.A.L.K.E.R who is the king, or Rage which was also better.

I'm not talking about BioShock 1. Infinite was, in my opinion, a much better game - and I loved Bioshock 1.
