    Don't Starve

    I just don't like these kinds of games.
    This x 1,000.

    I put 200 hours into Dark Souls. This shit felt tedious after 2. I don't mind being punished and having to redo stuff because of my mistakes, but when it's the same, boring-as-fuck grind with annoying sound effects every single time you die/turn the game on, it can do one.

    Wonderful 101

    I put a good few hours into this and there's a lot to admire but it's not for me.
    I don't have the reactions nor the patience for it, it's far too frustrating for me and I'm just not really enjoying it.

    Outcast

    I'm sure I don't need to explain my reasons.

    I went into it with a "fuck you I'm not scared of some video game" mentality, got through the first intro area until i ended into the main lobby of the hospital. Looked around a bit and saw some stairs descending towards a door, a room with a suspicious looking corpse and a hallway. I suppose what I really don't like is when something happens a loud noise, like a sting of music, is what actually makes me jump.

    Stylistically, I like the look of it, especially looking through the camcorder and putting night vision on.

    Witcher 2 again. dropped it several months ago but loaded it up last night - realised I was at the stage where you start out in a new town and I couldn't be arsed. Turned it off again.

    Did the same with Rome 2 Total War and Football Manager last night too.

    Wondering if I've become disillusioned with games.. or I'm just getting too old.

    Metro 2033 (PC)

    Started off okay as I liked the atmosphere but then I reached the first human enemies who exposed my utter shitness at FPS. After a few failed trys at diiferent approches I knew it wasnt for me. Plus seeing guys survive a shotgun blast to the head was really off putting.

    Dust: A Elysian Tale

    Played it for around 3-4 hours, the story is not good combined with annoying voice acting, and the exploration is really limited. Battles can be fun but boil down to the same kind of moves. Enemy AI is retarded and only pose a threath by numbers. Boss fights are boring and customization is limited.

    Music is nice though and I like the graphic style, just feels so inferior to other games in the same genre. Played it after Valdis Story: Abyssal and it is just not on the same level.

    @gelf At first, I disliked it as well. However, Ranger Mode fixed most of the game's issues. I'd recommend giving it another go by playing on Ranger Easy...

    Take the plastic bag challenge to cure stupidity.

    Outlast

    Hasn't grabbed me. Can see why others like it.

    Just find it pretty dull (and somewhat repetitive) in almost every aspect, and I'm guessing being scared/tense papers over the cracks for most people (try as I might, I'm not really feeling much in the way of either, especially since I know if I get chased and killed I'll be able to just start again straight away).

    Got about half way through it, but can't see myself going any further which is fine since I didn't pay for it (got it via PS+).

    edit; I'd also add I respect the devs for coming out with something a bit different.

    As a horror game, there is some real cleverness in the way it's been designed. The devs really knew what they were doing. It was a real masterclass in level design in a lot of ways, regardless of anyone's affinity with survival horror experiences.

    A dev studio to keep an eye on for sure.

    Kotor

    It really hasn't aged well. Just seems clunky, empty and the combat is shite.

    They improved everything with the later Mass Effect games which are very similar.

    If they made a new Kotor I think it would be amazing, but I was trying to hard to enjoy this.

    Ninja Gaiden II

    Xbox original is one of my favorite games but this just feels like a disjointed chore. I've hit chapter 8 and there is rocket guys at every corner and out of windows, more annoying than a challenge in my book. As for the rest of the game, fighting is good, water sections should be banned even though rather tame in this. too much bow action, levels are just a bit whatever. Bosses haven't been very interesting, just stupid and not in the Ninja Gaiden mental way. Enjoyed the fighting and got good again, thought I totally lost all skill in the beginning. Tainted my happy NG memories but no loss, had some fun with NG2.

    Look I tried it. I fixed the crappy port. I've tried it again. I just don't get it. It's ugly a lot, dull and quite lifeless and feels like a PS2 game (why is that with Japanese games this gen?) and I'm fed up with the terrible controls (on a pad as it was designed to be played with to), I keep wandering around and combat is awful it's bollocks so I give up trying and deleting. I often seem to go against the popular opinion in truth but really? THIS is the darling everyone raves about? :confused:

    Dark Souls

    Sorry :redface:

    Partly yeah, still a poor game IMO. It just feels so dated and old. Admittedly I'm far more into western RPGs and have been for years but I just didn't get this one.

    Nothing to do with age. It was clunky, empty and the combat was shite the day it launched.

    You don't like Dark Souls. Your opinion is invalid.

    I've always thought the Souls games feel closer to a Western RPG than a traditional JRPG actually, though really they're very much their own thing.

    @Stranded87

    Yeah, I think it certainly is an attempt at the western RPG, didn't work for me though.

    You need to stick with it to appreciate it, it's very special and unlike any other game.
    I'd give it another go, get at least past the first boss.

    If you're expecting it to be like... oh, I don't know, Skyrim or something, then you're expecting the wrong thing.

    Besides, it's much better than Skyrim. :)

    I really need to find some time to dig into Dark Souls.

    Although its nothing like Skyrim. Damn ass comparison.
  • Deleted user 15 March 2014 14:02:04
    I could not get into Dark Souls too. Liked the atmosphere but the gameplay was just, not for me. Too brutal.
    I appreciate that there are people who enjoy it. It's good for the community I think.

    Battlefield 4.

    Played one level of the campaign: review score lol

    Multuplayer: A boring campfest designed to encourage hiding in corners and sniping from far away hills.

    Complete shit.
