Eurogamer readers' top 50 games of 2017

MortenGamst

4 months ago

Best racing game this year was F1 2017. Shame it's still a little bit too niche to find its way onto this list.

Glad to see Gran Turismo Sport above (albeit slightly) FM7. I've been a fan of Forza for a long time but I've had so much more fun with GTS this last month than Forza.

Shout out to F1 2016, best iteration in years! Codemasters deserve a lot of credit for that, and Dirt Rally of course!

FIFA 16 review

MortenGamst

3 years ago

Am I the only one who preferred FIFA 14 to 15? The constant collisions and "ping pong" posession was infuriating. Last year's FIFA was the first iteration I played for less than 10 hours in total. Not fun at all.

I played the 16 demo and quite enjoyed it but heard that there's a patch that has upped the pace again? I might just give this year a miss (first time I've not pre-ordered it also). Maybe I just don't enjoy them anymore, or maybe I've just gone off football. I'm a Blackburn fan.

Rare Replay review

MortenGamst

This is one of those rare (!) moments I've considered buying an XboxOne to compliment my PS4. I think the only other time was when Forza Horizon 2 came out, but I got over it. Memories of CBFD and Blast Corps brings tears to my eyes though....

CVG to close

Other than EG (and GAF/Reddit) this was one of my few go-to websites up until recently so this is really sad news.

I certainly trust their reviews more than I do Eurogamer's of late, as they are often more informative and give out a score which, to me at least, is more accurate than this site.

DriveClub revisited: is dynamic weather a game-changer?

MortenGamst

3 years ago

Took part in an online race on the Canada race track at night, stormy and heavy precipitation yesterday evening. Couldn't see a fucking thing, it was terrifying. Judging by the number of bumps I guess neither did the other 11 people. I did however emerge victorious overtaking some poor guy just before the chequered flag and beat him by 0.067 secs. A glorious moment.

Enjoying Destiny's quieter moments

MortenGamst

Brilliant article. It's captured my feelings towards the game perfectly. After admittedly rushing through the "story" missions and getting to lvl 20 I'd have given this game 6/10. But having gone through more strikes, patrolling for mats/glimmer, working on an exotic bounty and even doing a bit of PvP I am loving every minute of it. Despite its repetativeness!

8/10 for me now and still rising!

Digital Foundry: Hands-on with DriveClub

MortenGamst

4 years ago

It does look spectacular and I'll probably dive into it but I'll still never understand this "social" thing. The guy in the vid talked about how people might not be interested in "going it alone" and "winning every race". For me that's what it's about. I wouldn't feel any sense of reward if other people in my "club" did the job for me.

But then I've always been a sim/real cars & championships/points tables kinda guy.

Edit: Sorry I do realise this is a DF article so it's a little off-topic. It's very pretty.

Just asking....

Could World of Warcraft expansions fall under the criteria for this.

Under the assumption they're add-ons to a game originally released early 2005 in Europe I guess not, but just checking?!

Unfortunately, despite buying a 360 shortly after release I was a late comer to console gaming and despite buying the older games later on, anything pre-2010 doesn't make my top 5 because of WoW consuming all my time!

I remember once playing WoW from about 9pm one evening through until 7am the next day, fuelled only by Lucozade and never taking a break from what I remember.

It was only once I got the point where I was literally shaking in my seat that I realised and shouted (actually out loud), "GET OFF THE COMPUTER YOU DICK!", after which I then moved over to my bed resembling a 95 year old man with Parkinson's.

I like to think myself as an entirely normal person too. Never again!

F1 2012 review

@Findus The CM forums have actually gone into meltdown over this and the lack of any half decent response from any of the developers is only making it worse.

Entirely understandable uproar as far as I'm concerned. Having only one practice session is forgivable but no tyre wear scaling is not. Criminal.

Hmmm released same day as F1 2012 which is usually a big seller. I don't mean to suggest everyone who likes football likes F1 (probably far from it, but I'm one of them) but it doesn't seem like too great an idea to me. Maybe they should have stole a fortnight march.

"You drive around in stolen cars, shoot people and stuff... . It's really really good"

"Well if you're sure its worth it, then ok"

"Thanks Mum"

I don't care what difficulties are involved (if any) in making a game with offline multiplayer/splitscreen but not having it for this is just criminal. Clearly no one has friends round their house anymore.

Maybe if I were to play it again I might be able to last more than half an hour before my ears start bleeding. 7-8 years ago (or whenever it was) all I can recall is an inaudible gimp talking shit to me and getting as far as a car park before dying and restarting repeatedly.

Needless to say I gave up and never played it after day of purchase (albeit for £10). I'm not sure that what I felt at the time was dissapointment or pure bewilderment.
