I really wish someone would make games like this again.

 

I have pretty much givin up on gaming....just can't stand the hand holding......graphics are great now days....game play has fallen off drastically , IMHO.

Just replayed the mass effect trilogy for the first time since the original me3 ending days (which I thought was a fine ending to an awesome series). I still really like it and the extended cut makes it slightly better. People love to complain either way. I wish EA (who have always sucked) and bioware (who have been sucking for awhile) would have stoped the cash grab and released all the dlc in the trilogy set instead of actually releasing more separate pay dlc and removing some that previously was included. I hate dlc so much. Femshep rules the milky way yo.

If you want a game with no hand-holding play Dark Souls/Dark Souls 2. Excellent games that will never be accused of hand-holding under any circumstance. There are still great games out there but there is just more garbage to sift through is all.

ME 1: Great game, some bugs bug overall great game.

ME 2: Almost a master piece. Played it 7 times.

ME 3: Did not even finish it, I youtubed the ending (you cant believe how smart I felt when I realized I did not waste more time).

 

ME 3 for me took away too much of the "non-combat" elements.

Half of the time I felt like I was playing a 3rd person shooter, and Im sure anyone who would call ME series a 3rd person shooter would be oversimplifying a o lot.

 

The worse offence for me of ME3 was how narrow the game story-line was.

ME2 was not open world by any means, but it did allow for some exploration, some dialogues etc.

ME3... I felt like it was the same simplification as from Dragon Age Origins to Dragon age 2.

 

Thats just my point of view, but Id never suggest to someone to play ME3, id tell them to simply skip it :D.

 

EDIT: About DLC: I simply wait till they are done with them, and buy at 50% price or less the full set.

HOWEVER! ME2, you need to buy bioware points? make anotehr account? link your game data with some server?

Kiss my black *ss (and Im white, but I needed the extra omph for the statement).

Worst part: its another thing you have to remember to do after formating a pc, or getting a new one: log in again, get the key, install it from bioware again (hope that they wont discontinue it at some point).

 

I dont use steam because they save little dolphins in their free time, but because I can format my PC, set to download 20 games, go to sleep, and be ready to rumble the next day. So... I sorta decided that anything that I need Origin, Ubisoft, Microsoft games, points, DRM and so on wont be on my PC.

I am thinking about getting mass Effect 2 and 3 myself. I recently downloaded the Demo of 3 on Origin, and played half. Great demo. I was unsure last time I tried it but I was on a much smaller monitor and it did it no favours. I found the ME2 demo is on Steam so am going to grab that anytime soon. (I tried the ME1 demo ages and ages ago and found it not so exciting.)

Yep I like the Mass Effect 2, and 3 demo. Gonna get them as soon as a sale comes. Really glad you mentioned it.

 

I was trying out an old game again last night. Rome Total War. Given the huge following of these type of games I surprised. It is the third time I tried it, and I failed spectacularly last night. I am -8000 denari, and no chance of getting back in credit and earning money. I can't buy troops or buildings. Thus I have to start again.

 

The two previous times I played, I got much further on. I conquered loads of places, and had masses of the map. Yet both times another faction declared war on my capitol and I could not get troops there fast enough to defend. I don't know if this means game over, but either way both times I gave up.

I've been playing a lot of Dying Light lately it's way better then I thought it was going to be and it's on sale off steam right now well worth trying..
