I find myself with more downtime than I really would want lately and I have been thinking of filling it it with something mindless and fun like a new video game. I have a couple of games that I love and enjoy playing and haven’t finished. But, who cares shiny is good.
Here are the games I have and really enjoy:
Love being able to explore. I find the combat system to be pretty and enjoyable to fight in. And, I like that if I like I can sneak up on enemies and assassinate them.
Love it. Love the sandbox driving all over the place and wreaking havoc. Love the story.
Cute fun. It seems small, (even if I haven’t bothered to finish) somehow. But, I like the gameplay ideas and the puzzles are pretty tricky.
Half Life 2:
Fun first person action. But, kind of non stop killing and not much thinking involved. Also, I found it annoying that I could get to a point where I couldn’t go backwards - but couldn’t go forwards either because I got rid of my boat thinking I didn’t need it anymore.
Metal Gear Solid 4:
Haven’t started playing it yet. But, I was ever so annoyed by a MGS I had on the ps2 that had like 5 years of “plot” on the radio. Game play was awesome, though. I am sure the same is true here.
Some NCAA football and basketball games:
Just got these for an occasional sports fix for like 10 bucks for both. No need for any more sports games.
Here are the games I am looking at getting:
Loved the demo. Such ambience! Great soundtrack and graphics. Fun story, too! Worried that it might prove boring in similar ways to Half Life 2.
Prince of Persia:
I think it’s from the makers of AC. Also, for nostalgic reasons I would love it to relive my days of playing Prince of Persia on the C64 and constantly dying.
Little Big Planet:
Looks really cute and like now and then fun. It got some good reviews here and the video demos make it look good. My only worry is that online play seems to be one of it’s biggest components and I have never been big on online play.
Which do you think I would like best if you have played them? Any other game ideas to make the decision even more difficult?
