Post here when a video game pisses you off

#1 Post by Bill » 28 Oct 2011, 12:35

Dear Dead Island,

You are oh so fun but why is it so g'damn impossible to kill a thug zombie? It alone took me 20 minutes to kill one, and I ended up using all of my weapons INCLUDING A FLIPPING LOADED REVOLVER WHICH APPARENTLY DOESN'T KILL THEM EVEN IF YOU SHOT THEM IN THE HEAD 400000000 TIMES.

Please stop it.

Dear New Games,

I love the geek out immerse yourself games like Skyrim, Elder Scrolls and Fallout. Games that you can play and play and play. I replay them on my X-box.

I recently brought a PS4 and the games look amazing. Yet when I buy a game, it seems I can finish it in a weekend. And now I hear that the Fallout/Skyrim games will not be remade for PS4.

Please give me a game which has an offline shelf life of over 20 hours!
I'd be happy to kill her, she called me a fish.

Have you played Farcry? Its similar enough to those you mentioned that you would probably like it. I'm on my 2nd time through now and still having a lot of fun with it. It doesn't have nearly as much to do as Fallout or Elder Scrolls and there isn't nearly as much customization but its a very well made open world with a good story and plenty of side missions to keep you going. Taking out the fortresses is my favorite part. I try to going in all sneaky and see if I can take out an entire fortress without being detected.
The :) means it's all ok.

I'm playing FarCry4 now. Yeah, that seems a lot bigger, more sneaking, that I like. Would still love the new consoles to bring out versions of the Bethusda games I love. If you know of any more similar let me know! the Last of Us was brilliant, but finished as soon as I started getting into it.
