Games I Finished
I don't typically get into to FPS games. A friend of mine had me borrow this and told me to at least try it out. I did, and I was pleasantly surprised. Bioshock is a lot of fun. It's got a great atmosphere, challenging gameplay, and a lot of talented voice-work and other stuff. Glad I played it, and I'll probably end up getting Bioshock 2.
This my be the best title I played all year. I'd always heard a lot about it, so I decided to play through it. I was completely engrossed. It's probably the first serious RPG I've played, and it most certainly delivered. If you haven't played this, you should definitely check it out.
Meh, not so great. I bought mostly because I wanted to support High Voltage, but the Conduit is pretty mediocre. Play control is nicely polished, but everything else seems kind of bare. Hopefully The Grinder will be better.
The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker
One of the most aesthetically beautiful games I have ever played. Truly a work of art. Every aspect of this game, from the story to the music, is polished to perfection. Anyone still turning their nose up at this game is depriving themselves of a great experience.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
Controls are pretty complicated, but once I learned them, the game was awesome. Third act was kind of pointless, but Act 4 more than makes up for it. While the story wasn't as captivating as MGS3, the game-play was much improved, so it felt like an even trade off.
Found this for $7 in GameStop and thought I should give it a go. Glad I did. Metroid Prime is like one giant Zelda dungeon, except you have power-suit that you can upgrade to ridiculous levels, and there are a number of different environments. I'm glad that I finally picked this one up and experienced it for myself.
Played But Not Finished:
Fun game, but I keep dying on the first level boss, and have to start the level ALL over, so I just quit.
Finished all the grand prix, but story mode is f***ing brutal.
Fun, but kinda repetitive...
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
Almost finished. I like it.
This game is interesting. Might do a write up on it later.
Mega Man X
Almost finished. I like this game a lot.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Gah, I need to just buckle down and finish this game. Still only at the first or second dungeon.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Fun game, almost done.
Final Fantasy VI
I got really tired of the random battles on the world map. Chrono Trigger was much better.
Metroid Prime Trilogy
Star Wars: Battlefront
Resident Evil 4
