If it's crap ... We'll tell you
With the modern gaming climate being an onslaught of new games week after week, it's safe to assume that everyone has games that they have either heard about or seen in stores that have grabbed their attention, but they've never really taken the time, or had the disposable income on hand, to play. I thought this would be a good place to discuss what those games are for you, and maybe even get an opinion from people who have played them as to whether or not they're worth checking out. So, denizens of the forums, what games are on the periphery of your awareness that you just haven't been able to pull the trigger on? My pick would be the Persona series. I've been aware of the games since the original Playstation era, but I've just never really had the time or money to play them myself.
I don't know how much my advice is worth, but I was pretty much the same as you. I heard a lot about the Persona series for a good amount of years until I finally decided to try out P3 and I'm glad I did. The game has a lot of charm, and I mean a lot. Plus, you're into anime, right? At least from what I can remember... in that case, I think it'll tickle your fancy. I really love the style of the game for some reason and particularly the soundtrack, it is so good. I haven't tried P4 yet as I haven't finished this one yet, but I'm very satisfied with it. Plus, if you have a PSP you might consider getting Persona Portable, there's a chance it might cheaper.
As far as time, yeah, be prepared, it'll eat away a lot of hours.
I never played the Persona series, but I heard a lot of good things about the franchise.
I'm a huge fan of fighting games and haven't even bothered to try the Persona fighting game.
My game/franchise I've heard about and want to try, but don't have the time is... The Witcher.
I've even bought the second game for the 360 and haven't gotten past the battle in the beginning.
I need your help bros. I'm getting gifted several games and I can chose which. However, I'm still undecided. I have a few in my eye that I want to try out, but still unsure about:
Ghost Recon Future Soldier
Spec Ops The Line
Lego Batman 2
Ass Creed Revelations (if it's following the same steps as Brotherhood, I'm passing)
I already decided on two, which are Alan Wake and New Vegas and I can chose one more. That's not to say I'm not open to other suggestions, you can suggest any game outside of these if you're compelled to, but I would like some insight from some of you, particularly from the ones listed above.
How's its length compared to other Lego games (Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter 1-4, Batman, Star Wars Episode 3)?
And how good is the exploration on the open world? Is there lots of stuff to do?
So the campaign actually takes shorter time to complete or is it just less levels but they last equally if not more to other Lego campaigns?
Are you kidding me?! ARE YOU IMPLYING THERE'S PEOPLE WHO BUY LEGO GAMES AND NOT TRY TO GET A 100%?! I'm happy to hear the replayability is still as strong since that's the key to all Lego games.
Keep hearing about how awesome the Persona series is. Do you know if the games are on the PSN now?
For me personally, I'd have to say the Assassin's Creed series.
I was the same way with Assassin's Creed for years. Recently I powered through the first two, but then lost steam when I got to Brotherhood. I think it was a combination of burnout and the poor PC optimization. I'm sure I'll get through it eventually, though.
The one thing I'll say about these games is that they seem to fuck up the pacing near the end. I'm not sure if I was playing with DLC, but there was always a point where I thought the game should be over, then they add in some unnecessary stuff. Still, they're worth a play, and at least the first couple games are really cheap now.
