    Tempted to chuck Life is Strange.

    Near the end of episode 2 (played episode 1 back in February) and I really don't see the appeal... Chloe is one of the most annoying characters in a game, or maybe I just don't enjoy listening to moody teenagers do moody teenage things as a hook.

    The game world and art is well realised, but so far the characters and story has been risible nonsense coupled to a twee (mostly shite, menu music is lovely) indie soundtrack.

    Really don't get the fawning over this at all.

    I think he liked Bulletstorm, and Horizon Zero Dawn? Not sure really.

    Nothing wrong with his approach. It's fair when you have a finite amount of time to play games and don't have the tolerance to persevere. Wish I was less anal enough to be able to dump games unfinished but I'm a bit OCD and don't like to drop something until I actually can't do it.

    He got further than I did with Life is Strange. I had one go for twenty minutes and dumped it. Really not for me at all.

    Life is Strange is great and GoT is even better. Not the game though, that's one of Telltale's weaker ones.

    You have to be a real wet blanket to enjoy Life Is Strange. Found it irritating on all levels.

    Guess I'm a real wet blanket then, at least according to bloke on the internet.

    Oh well.

    With that said I'm not particularly looking forward to Before the Storm

    Disagea 5 - Just what do people see in these games?

    I'm either missing something or people like fiddling around in menus for 20 minutes after every fight against clueless AI.

    @Addy_B Well if I can't shitpost about games in the "recently abandoned games" thread, where am I supposed to do it? ;)

    As for my distaste of GoT, a more lucid take on it is I found the overt violence and near-pornography to be nothing more than cheap titillation that seemed to be the main hook (instead of part of the setting/era) and found it hard to have any investment in the characters as they may well be dead in the next episode... not that many of the characters had much depth (Peter Dinklage was great, mind), the writing is pretty one dimensional and mostly generic nerd wank-bait.

    But as The_Goon says, it's simply a case of being selective with my free time. If a game's not doing it for me, what's the point? I did play through about 40% of LiS before I formed a decision on it (which isn't entirely negative, as per my post). I also thought Persona 5 and Yakuza 0 were a bit shite, but put 12 hours into the former and 16 into the latter before I made a decision.

    Again, I'm not going to be posting about my love for Guilty Gear, Horizon, Resi 7, ME Andromeda (yes, I actually thought that was great), Wipeout, PES, Bulletstorm, Polybius, Tekken, Nex Machina in the abandoned games thread.

    Nice to have you back :)

    Not a miserable twat, just in a story-driven game about two teenage girls, as a 35 year old man without kids or nieces/nephews, there's not a lot for me to identify with.

    I think I liked life is strange as it was just a change of pace from my usual games. I do get why people don't like it.

    That sentence reads wrong in quite a few ways.
