Rudimentary creatures of blood and flesh. You touch my mind, fumbling in ignorance, incapable of understanding.
You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it.
Sovereign - Mass Effect
-I have an anime list now too (that I never update...).-
I'd really have to recommend Dishonored to everyone. The choices you make in the story heavily effect the outcome and how people in the world interact with you. The story is compelling and the gameplay is fantastic. I will say though that it is really only for people with a good amount of patience. You can just go crazy and kill everyone, but you may miss out on some pretty interesting conversations that the characters have with each other. Overall the gameplay, story, and game world are absolutely top notch.
Recently I bought my old man a new TV and an xbox, because I know he likes playing some old games and shooters and what not. He enjoys a lot of the WWII shooters and just the "call of duty" type games in general. But the one game that he has enjoyed the most is Red Dead Redemption, he beat it some time ago but he will still get on that game and play. Heck he even starts new characters and plays through the game over. Since that is the game he plays more than any other I've been looking to get another game for him that is like red dead redemption.
I've tried some new games like Fallout: New Vegas because I heard it was a pretty good sandbox game like RDR. While i enjoy them and they are pretty good games, most of them just get a little too complex and complicated for my father. Having to deal with skills, over complicated menus and what not just ruin a game for him. He just loves to run around and have fun without having to be on a designated mission, without all the complicated mess and confusion. Now I'm not saying it has to be an auto lock press one button game, but simple is king. I remember when he first started playing RDR there were a few things that confused him but it wasn't too bad.
So basically I'm just wondering if anyone knows of any games that you could recommend. Thanks in advanced and sorry for the somewhat long read.
Here is a stretch, looking for a good hopefully more recent game (with decent graphics at least) that is either an rpg or rts where there are dwarves as a playable race and/or faction, will consider mmos as long as they aren't weird asian ones.
Games with dwarves I have already played so you don't need to mention
a game of dwarves
both the warhammer and lord of the rings mods for total war
Battle for middle earth 1& 2
I just got a wireless receiver for my PC, to allow use of my XBOX controllers with it, and I have my PC hooked up to my TV. I'm looking for a good fun racing game on steam that doesn't require too much skill (like the F1 simulators). Something like Mario Cart would be great. Definitely has to have Multiplayer. I played a bit of Forza 4 at a friends house and liked it, especially since you could put on things to help newbie players like assisted breaking and the green lines on the track. Big Screen/Controller support a must ofc.
I'd much rather something cheap, as I don't want to spend money on a game that the missus gets bored of relatively quickly.
Hello, is there any type of MMORPG that is set in the future, let's you customize your own unique character, let's you have your own house, and let's you do space battles like EVE Online? Star Wars Galaxies was like that, but sadly that game is very outdated... Plus, I hate lightsabers... :/
Hello, im looking for look-alike games....
- Wintermaul (WC3 map). Basically looking for lookalike game that uses top vision, mazer TD.
-Soldiers (another WC3 map). Dont know if anybody remembers, you were playing a sniper dwarf, you were playing in 2d moving top left right bot (like mario bros), you had to left click to shoot your gun, and right click to throw a grenade. your shots/grenades were affected by gravity making it hard and addictive to fight other players.

Far Cry 3 is a must now. Planetside 2 looks purty good. Going to try PS2 this weekend when I have more time
A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.
A african american, a muslim, and a alien walk into a bar, what does everyone say? Hello Mr. President
Looking for a jrpg with a decent girl main character that isn't ff13/pokemon/ff6/valkyrie profile/p3p and that is something I can emulate which is up to wii.
Been playing wow and diablo 3, but wow pvp just seems unbalanced and i can't find any good partners, Diablo is just Act3 grinding which isn't to my tastes.
I tried swtor but it didn't appeal to me, rift seemed good but no pvp arena from what i can see, the pve seemed fun, but i raided for so long in wow i don't want to get to max level then have the endgame pve be stale.
Any suggestions would be awesome
If it's an MMO you're looking for, I'd say give GW2 a try
Have heard bad things about GW2 from a mate, but i could try it out if theres a free trial.
League of Legends for some pvp? or try Dota 2, different style of game i know :P
Hey guys, maybe you can help me out here. I'm looking for a game to play. Recently I've had no luck finding a game that I stick to. I've been downloading new ones and buying some and I just can't stick to them, for some reason nothing spectacular has come up that's kept me playing and actually made me look forward to the next time I could start it up and play again. So I'm leaving my decision to you guys.
Here are games/types of games I will not play:
World of Warcraft - played it exclusively for years, quit 2 months ago because it felt like a chore to keep playing and also it's way too repetitive now
Guild Wars 2 - own it, don't play it because I like good PvE and progression in a game, something GW2 doesn't have IMO
Asian MMO's - hate them with a passion
Sub-based MMO's - don't want to pay to play any more - buy to play is okay though (one time fee, have the game forever)
Arcade style games - no side scroller's or games in which the only goal is to beat a previous score
Shooters - because every CoD after MW2 ruined the genre for me
The kind of game I want:
- a game I could play for DAYS (of in-game time)
- single player or multi player, I don't care
- I'm really into RPG's (specifically Skyrim, which I've played too much of now)
I know, I'm picky, but overall I just want a fun game that I could play for hours on end. Oh, and on PC only. Please let me know if one exists that matches my criteria. :P
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
Mass Effect 2
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
i'm not 100% on the time for all of them, but they will definitely give you plenty to do. Maybe not to the extent of skyrim, but I prefer all of them to Skyrim personally.
