The Hot Topic

Recommended Posts

Thinking back there were a few games I felt a little disappointed with last year, not because they were necessarily bad games... Just not as good as I was hoping for or expecting.

 

State of Decay 2 - had fun with the game but so much more could've been done with it.

 

Shadow of the Tomb Raider - you could tell that it wasn't Crystal Dynamics that finished off the trilogy, it's a shame as the first two are some of the best adventure games out there.

 

Shadow of the Colossus - fuck that horse!

 

And then there's the biggy... Good ol' Red Dead Redemption 2, how disappointed was I in you!

Dragon Quest XI definitely. I think we were blessed that the first three Dragon Quest games we got in Europe were brilliant (8, 4 and 5).

Shenmue 1 “HD”

 

People have been banging on for years about how it’s the best game ever made so I was expecting something great. I wasn’t expecting it to live up to the hype by any means, and I was well aware of the Black Car/Sailor/Chinese memes so was at least expecting it to be fun. But it was just shite. 

 

I enjoyed the story and dodgy dialogue and acting, but mechanically it’s a hot mess. And forcing the player to work at the dock for the last third of the game is rubbish. 

 

“Oh, but it’s supposed to be like real life!!” they say. Piss off, it’s a game about revenge and martial arts. Imagine if Game of Death stopped for an hour so we could watch Bruce Lee work in a super market, it’d be shite. 

 

So yeah, Shenmue. Shenmue 2 was much better... Until the last 4 hours.

DQ 8 is still one of the best games ever made.

With Valentine’s Day just gone readers name the games they enjoy playing together the most, from Mario Kart to The Walking Dead.

 

The subject for this weekend’s Inbox could involve any game and any era, and likewise any partner – whether you’re still with them or not – but we wanted to know which games you have enjoyed playing the most in co-op or multiplayer, or where one of you watched the other playing.

 

Unsurprisingly, the most popular choices were co-op games you could play together on the same couch and narrative-led games where both players could make suggestions on how to proceed, with the common complaint being that there just aren’t enough of either type of game.
