Definitely Alpha Protocol. Specifically finishing it the second time and realising just how much effect my actions had on the narrative. Apart from Deus Ex (original) no other game has ever given me that feeling that my actions had consequences.

Also Pillars of Eternity the opening ten minutes... Took me back to the golden age of gaming when I was 18 and Baldurs Gate 2 etc was the focus of 99.9% of my spare time. Nostalgia and genuine good new gameplay mixed into one glorious whole.

Nintendo in disdain for it's customers shocker could be the headline of everything they ever do. Who else would be so stupid and hateful to gimp a tube journey game?

Nier is the rare game that gets better with age

RyanDS

I bought this and played for a few hours and found it pretty crap. Then some fetish doll in stockings flashing her panties showed up which made a boring game just embarrassing to play so I deleted it. If I was twelve it would have been cool. As a grown up it just made me feel embarrassed on behalf of the whole industry.Edit. See also whoever took the time to lovingly add in the veins on the big tits in lost odyssey.

Elite: Dangerous review

Make a single player, as opposed to this fuck up that mirrors Diablo 3 / Sim City etc so I can play on my commute, otherwise the devs can go fuck themselves for fucking up what should be a perfect time waster.

9/10 for a console.

3/10 if compared to PC FPS games. Halo really did ruin gaming with that stupid recharging shields and no weapon wheel rubbish.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor review

RyanDS

4 years ago

"There have been many attempts, from the ZX Spectrum text adventure The Hobbit to endless film tie-ins, but none have quite recreated the spectacle of steel sparking steel, nor the smell of blood and dirt and sweat-through leather in your nostrils as an orchestra swells triumphantly at your back and you charge valiantly towards almost certain destruction. Far from getting there and back again, most games set in Middle-earth fall before they've even left The Shire"

The reason most games don't capture Middle Earth is the same reason this reviewer doesn't get it.

Lord of the Rings is about Frodo, while most games are about Aragorn.

Saying that who wants to be a middle age, child size landowner?

Heh, Half Life 2 was the only PC game I pirated for over 10 years. And I only did that as I had no internet and it was the one game that was unplayable without a connection.

So valve really aren't the people to talk about putting people off piracy.
