    I really enjoyed Dead Island (single player) but its main problem is just that it was so incredibly schizophrenic - like there were two independent dev teams having a tug-of-war over what it should...

    Okay I'll bite. I can't help but feel they kept a bunch of this stuff deliberately vague so I'm not sure there's real answers...

    The vibe I got from the Outsider was "bored ancient god".

    Possession level 2 is a fantastic power too, especially when you've got guards sticking stubbornly in a group. Walk them to a hidden corner, dispossess, eliminate. It's almost a guaranteed safe...

    As well as that, this is a game that (so far - I've just finished the first post-pub mission) really uses its vertical dimension, and your character is pretty good at getting up high pretty easily....

    I know it's technically Day of the Dead themed, but GRIM FANDANGO is totally a game to play for Halloween


    Also probably too dated to have much of an impact now, but System Shock 2 was the...

    Be glad you never got the story, it really is the most dreadful nonsense.
    If you're going to go back to one, I would go for AC2. Brotherhood is maybe "better", and its Rome is unquestionably an...

    The other approach, that supposedly doesn't flag you (I'm not quite sure how to tell, but I'm pretty sure I'm still getting achievements), is to enable console, start a new character, then open the...

    I'm gonna disagree on this one. I tried it out and found it REALLY useful in boss fights. Either as a panic button when I lose forcefield and the cooldown hasn't finished (it also gives 60% damage...

    Up to level 43 with my engineer now and things are getting ridiculous. My full posse is now a healingbot, a helicopter, a gunbot, a smashbot, ten spidermines, and a necromancer dog who himself...

    I'm finding that the main benefit of the healing bot midgame is the mana regeneration, so I can fire heaps of blast cannon shots and still keep forcefield up, without having to micromanage potions...

    Went with engineer on veteran, I'm level 30-something and haven't regretted the decision to go engy for a second. Awesome class.

    Went with cannons (so cool!), so heavy lifting and blast cannon are...

    I like FO3 and NV just about equally, but for different reasons.
    For me, FO3 does the whole "lone wanderer" thing better. Just exploring through the lonely, ravaged world - picking your way through...

    It's one of the greatest games ever made and I love it to bits. I probably spent more time with it than any other game.

    It does a fantastic job of taking the core Civilization elements and...

    Yeah I think the massively different responses in this thread - from people who played solo vs people who played co-op - highlight how different the solo and co-op experiences are.

    I really enjoyed this game, but it has some really bizarre design decisions and it's perhaps the most schizophrenic game I've played (even more than GTA4). It wants to be an emotional and tense...
