I have played the Portal games. I don't feel like you're missing out. Highly overrated IMO.

Portal is an incredible series. Not overrated at all, but IMO.

Just beat Rage. And well, not bad and not great. Wish I had beaten it sooner though so I could have gotten more money when I sold it back.

I've been contemplating that one for months. I played some of it either at a friend's house or maybe there was a demo, I don't remember. Driving controls were pretty good, but the game itself was so poorly made in terms of dialogs and story and just the overall mood, I didn't feel any connection whether to my character or other people. Combat was OK, but I didn't have enough practice to get the guys doing aerobics right in front of my face so they'd get me often. Plus, I read that the game is extremely linear and so when you do get to drive, it's only in small corridors from one place to the next. Not like you can have fun driving around.

Is that the impression you got?

I bought this for the 360, played it for roughly an hour, and haven't gotten back into it yet. Does it get better after the beginning?

I had no idea wtf was going on. Like I honestly had no idea why I was killing people but the gun play was pretty fun. Gun fights were enjoyable and for the most part the AI was a good opponent. The driving parts of the game were extremely fun and were definitely the highlight of the game. The atmosphere was ok, the enemies were all the same, just different skins. There were some moments in the game where things got pretty cool and the boss battles were sometimes fun.

The constant need to save without autosave was frustrating since I never thought about it until I died and would have to redo something that took me a half-hour to do. The defibulator thing was pretty cool I guess.

As for the game getting better? Eh. The vehicles get better and more fun to drive than the ATV. Though I may be biased there :twisted:... Despite getting better guns, the only weapons I ever used were the shotty, machine gun, and the sniper. All guns you get rather early in the game. Switching weapons while in combat was a major pain in the ass. And even worse was when you had to switch ammo.

Overall, I would probably give the game 7/10 but once you beat it I doubt you ever play it again.

One of the reasons I like games is that to me they're often like a movie or a book. Where I actually do care about the story. It's almost an escape into a different world. So if I don't care about the characters, like in Rage, it makes it pretty difficult.

I started R&C Tools of Destruction. Looks nice. Only problem I have is that gadget that is supposed to allow me to hook onto something and pull myself foward isn't working. I'm pressing the button, but it's not doing anything. I need to read a faq.

LeopardLetang,

NES Play Action Football was actually my favorite football game until I got Madden '94 for the Genesis. Vastly underrated football game. On weekends when the weather was crappy, we used to set up tournaments on that game, keep stats, the whole deal.

What are the other two screenshots you posted? The second game looks very familiar but I can't quite place it.

One problem I always run into in games like Skyrim is the flooding of quests.

Every time I try to resolve one quest, I end up stumbling on 10 more.

I'm not complaining, but at time, it gets overwhelming.

Off Road baby.

the other one was NFL. it was actually a horrible game. but i had a lot of fun with it. i remember the only good offensive plays were QB sneaks and fake punts.

I'm really enjoying R&C. I remembered how that glove worked. I got green wings I can fly with and a tornado shooter. :D
