I've tried desperately to enjoy a one player campaign, but I just can't. I don't know why, but I don't have the patience for it anymore. Maybe it's because I only get a chance to play maybe 1 hour every couple of days. That lack of momentum really kills a story.

In the last 6 months, I've bought tried to play Red Dead Redemption, Arkham City, Ghostbusters and I gave the campaign a go in both Black Ops 2 and Ghosts.

I'm happier sticking to multiplayer CoD and NHL 14 online.

I'm about ready to start the final mission on GTAV. Two cars in the garage and one more that should be easy to find. I still feel like there were a few missions that were left out that other people did that I never saw.

I prefer single player to multiplayer. A good single player game will always trump any multiplayer game in terms of my enjoyment.

Isn't StarTropics very Dragon Warrior-ish?

Playing The Wolf Among Us. Its based on The Fables comics by DC and is made by TellTale Games (a selling point for me). If you liked The Walking Dead game, you will more than likely like this game.

Yeah, I meant to add, the surface world is very Dragon Warrior-like, the combat more Zelda

I think it comes down to the ability to play with my friends. NHL and CoD are fun for me because I play with friends, many of whom I don't see regularly as we live in different areas of the country. It still blows my mind that it's possible to do that. That's Cable Guy stuff.

This came out in 1996. That's amazing.

Going through a full length season is the appeal to me in nhl. In a non sports game, the storyline is the major draw for me.

I do play Live the Life. Once I figured out that the best way to play is to sim the first two periods and play the third, it has been much more fun.

Yeah thats how i played be a pro in whatever the last game was. If you play out the whole game, you're going to win almost all, regardless of difficulty.

I'm in the 3rd year of GM mode in NHL 13. I turn off the salary cap (mostly because I don't care to think that much), so that's why this was possible, but Minnesota put Mikko Koivu (an 86 OV PLY C) on waivers. Not really sure why, but that was too good to pass up, considering after Crosby and Malkin, Brandon Sutter is my best C at 82 (and he and my other C are hurt).

Why would the CPU put an 86 OV guy on waivers? Just seems stupid.

Steal it and hide, wait for the stars to clear. I either hid behind a garage or under a homeless underpass.

Scratch that. I just killed everyone. No stars, for some odd reason.

It was for one of the heists. I have no idea how far into the game I am

I think you're more than 2/3s through the missions.

Just completed the bank heist with the train. Got killed by the tank when I made a wrong turn before I picked up the guys in the bulldozer, but other than that it didn't seem too bad.
