    From what I am hearing is that lost world is basically those games.

    Lost world looks pretty different from those games, though

    Generations wasn't all that, either

    It was really great by the start but by the time I got to that Sonic Adventure 1 Chaos Zero boss I was having such a miserable time I never played it again

    I haven't played Colors, but that still looks great to me

    Lost World never looked too great in my eyes

    Look I don't know how sonic works in a 3d world and I did not play any of those games.

    But they are pretty much being received the same way is what I am saying.

    So if you liked the other ones you would probably like this one?

    I guess.

    I wouldn't call the story in Dishonored shit, exactly
    run-of-the-mill, predictable, okay

    but I enjoyed the characters & gameplay a lot (the heart is probably my favourite thing in gaming 2012)

    Whoa, Dishonored needs to be defended? Who on the crew didn't like it?

    Patrick is literally the only one on the crew that liked it any.

    That's messed up

    I'm not going to say that Dishonored is bad

    But I don't understand it at all

    They build these incredibly elaborate areas to sneak around and then make you a combat god

    I think I beat that game in like 6 or 7 hours and never really saw any reason or incentive to engage with the sneaking at all

    this is true for pretty much all stealth games nowadays

    i felt the same way about metal gear solid for a long time. But if you actually try to stealth and don't give in to just murderfacing your way through every level these games are very rewarding.

    I think Deus Ex: HR did a better job balancing it. You could take on one guy okay, after that you felt pretty fragile. In Dishonored, you are just a murder machine. Yeah you can stealth, but it's actually harder and more time consuming than just mowing everyone down.

    Yeah you are insanely powerful and that's what made it not make sense to me

    When you can kill 10 guys at once why would you sneak

    Well if you go for the "bad" ending, a few sidequests are not even available, for example
    The ending itself is a bit dark and depressing, but not that far away from the usual light-side/dark-side difference

    I also really loved that for most of the assassinations, the non-lethal option was not just "tranq the target, good job" but actually a different way of handling it

    look i'm going to say it

    sonic generations is the single best sonic game

    additionally, the modern sonic levels were better than the classic levels

    "think differently as long as you agree with me"

    the call is actually for a greater diversity of opinion to be represented in reviews via more subjectivity

    cause a lot of people don't like or are middling over bioshock infinite, but you wouldn't know that from the metacritic page

    it only gets expressed in editorials

  • -Tal-Tal Registered User regular
    speaking of metacritic, lost world's is all over the map compared to colors and generations

    lots of reds, yellows, and greens

    2vue7ao.png
  • el_vicioel_vicio Registered User regular
    Acknowledging Infinite's shortcomings, I still think it's a pretty great game, important, and thus deserves the high metacritic score

    5FEdw1A.png
  • SCREECH OF THE FARGSCREECH OF THE FARG #1 PARROTHEAD margaritavilleRegistered User regular
    high metacritic scores are a basic human right

    Games with 90's and 20's are always fun

    I'd like to know from someone who enjoyed colors and generations how it is

  • el_vicioel_vicio Registered User regular
    I might have to add that I personally don't care much about metacritic scores, since there are two or three outlets at the most whose opinions on games etc influence me at all

    Not really, both the endings are super predictable, the bad ending just has that grimdark edginess to it that makes people think anything is more interesting than it is.

    As far as Dishonored goes, I feel about it the same way I feel about the first Assassin's Creed game. Its a far more interesting game engine than it is a game.
