10.] Lets keep the clean no my dad can beat up your dad, my dogs better than your dog nonsense, unnecessary bashing, some opinions suck but who cares.

11.] If you played a really, really good 3rd person FPS type game and you think it deserves a mention….. do it!


DING! DING! I’ll start:

1] Name 3 or 5+ or more FPS you really enjoyed:

FEAR, Farcry, Half-life 2 Episode 1

2] Name 3 or 5+ FPS your really didn’t enjoy:

Doom3 (too dark, annoying and predictable)
Call of Duty 1 and 2 (too boring)
Prey (too annoying and boring)
Halo1 (the most boring and annoying)
Return to Castle Wolfenstein (poorly designed and boring)
Brothers in Arms (gimmicky, poorly designed, boring, etc)

All my crappy opinion you heard me!

3] Name 3 or 5+ FPS you’ve never played but would like too:

B] Deus EX: (ugh horrible AI, horrible graphics, just horrible sorry it isn’t a fair review but in my opinion it hasn’t aged very well)

C] Aliens Versus Predator 1 and 2 and the Expansion: (it wasn’t decent and interesting at first but towards the end became more and more tedious and insipidly designed.)
