    Default Day 14: Just What I've Always Wanted!

    So today I get to play Bioshock and Bioshock 2. Never played them before but apparently they are pretty good. It's not that I didn't think the Bioshock games were crap when they were out, but I just never got round to playing them.

    So with that in mind, I'd like to hear all about those games you wish you had got to play, or those older games that you have recently managed to get the chance played that blew you away.

    Ready?

    Go!
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    So, erm, yeah... I've not played Skyrim yet..... Looks alright, I suppose....

    Edit: Yeah, play Bioshock. Couldn't recommend a series more. Lead me to read Atlas Shurgged by Ayn Rand and I have never looked back since. Got me into philosophy and everything. Stellar games, stellar concept, strong, driving narrative and beautifully realized world. The 2nd one isn't as good, but definitely still worth a punt.

    Recently bought a GameCube, along with Pokemon Colisseum which I'd always wanted. I'm still on the lookout for Gales of Darkness. I'll find it.

    Nothing massively springs to mind when it comes to missed games... I do have a lot on my shelf that people insist I should have played, but have yet to do so (examples: Arkham City, Mass Effect 1/2, Fallout 3 GOTY, Red Dead Redemption, etc. etc.).

    ...yeah I'm significantly backlogged. That's a small part of a long list.

    I missed out on Mass Effect 1 & 2 when they first came out. I ended up buying them both in a steam sale a year or so ago and then proceeded to play the shit out of them. It impressed me enough to buy the 3rd game on day 1. Even though I was in the middle of my giving up gaming for Lent experiment....

    Uncharted 2 is good. Don't bother with 3. The Bioshock series is excellent. 1 is better then 2. I wish i'd played Xcom series originally. It just can't get into it now.

    I wouldn't go as far to say "don't bother Uncharted 3"... granted it's nowhere near as good as 2, but it's still a pretty decent game. You could do a hell of a lot worse, anyway. If you find it cheap I'd say it's worth a playthrough.

    Every game I ever bought... apart from those few I finished.

    I'm that type of guy that buys a game, plays it for a few days and then buys the next because it's shinier at that time. And then I repeat it. From all the games that I have, including the steam library, I've finished maybe 5%, probably even less. I'm a lazy bastard that gets distracted far too easy.

    I've pretty much played every game that I want to, and if I haven't actually played it it's because I just haven't got around to it but I WILL play it. I actually don't have any gaming regrets, per se, other than spending over £300 on a Wii for Lorna's christmas because she really wanted one and it had sold out, so I had to go with eBay... and it never gets used, or buying the PS3... and it never gets used.... oh and the fucking FOUR Xboxes in the house, three of which never get used
    Oooooooh it's an invisible signature... oooooooooh!!
    "If you want me to 'act professional', I can tell you that I'm not interested. I'm sitting in my home office wearing a bathrobe. The same way I'm not going to start wearing ties, I'm *also* not going to buy into the fake politeness, the lying, the office politics and backstabbing, the passive aggressiveness, and the buzzwords. Because THAT is what 'acting professionally' results in: people resort to all kinds of really nasty things because they are forced to act out their normal urges in unnatural ways."
