    You chesthigh wall shoot endless endless endless waves of baddies (with a shitty gamepad to boot) with some shallow autoplatforming inbetween.

    I liked uc1 for being an interactive indiana jones movie basically with an entertaining cast (a little bit too much shooting), but the second game... ughhhhhhh I couldn't take the endless repetetive shooting anymore by the monk temple near the end into that over the top retarded vehicle scene.
    The idea of a dumbed down way easier more cinematic tomb raider with better production values wasn't bad, but it really doesn't lend itself to doing it more than once EVER. The gameplay is just not interesting and the game has you shoot down 10.000 people so there is a lot of it.

    Also this is a pc forum...
    I hear natural selection 2 is pretty cool!

    I just wanna know what all these legendary games are people keep referring to.

    I'm in a fortunate position to be able to pick and choosy over what games I play and what platforms I play them on, I get the best of all worlds.

    As for Crysis... the powers, or indeed the functionality of the suit is a mess.

    Edit: But it was better in the second.

    even if they were a "mess" (i.e not dumbed down like in the sequel), the PC version wins by default because there are about 20 mods I know of that meet your definition of "streamlined". Mods make any PC game the winner :)

    Deus Ex: You shoot endless endless waves of baddies (with awkward keyboard controlled powers to boot) with some shallow talking inbetween (the dialogue system WAS pretty weak).

    But the thing is: It does an amazing job with that. Deus Ex tells a wonderful story that makes you forget about the controls being awkward, even for when it was released. And the bulletsponge enemies you face later on (if you actually fight :p)

    Uncharted isn't perfect, but it accomplishes what it set out to do: Being an insanely fun interactive movie. Then it does it two more times to boot.

    Kind of controversial to say (so if anyone wants to whinge that I am trying to be controversial, feel free), but I would argue that mods actually ruined UT3 (and 2k3, to a good degree). Or, more specifically, the expectation of mods.

    The original UT is wonderful and might be the best arena FPS ever. And it had a metric crapton of mods
    2k3 and UT3 both felt very half-assed and were launched alongside modding contests (make something unreal). Essentially, Epic was counting on mods to make the game playable and were just making an engine (which sold like hotcakes). Unfortunately: If a game is crap, people don't want it. And if people don't want it, mods don't get made.

    I am sure someone can think of a few more examples where the expectation of modders fixing a game actually hurt it. But I think it is always important to consider context: Mods can make a good game better, but they can't make a crap game good.

    Since this is now the official gametrailers/ign quality thread on rps:

    No need to even go there:p crysis 1 on consoles runs at 10-25 fps much of the time ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwD2ty2UfBM ) .... and the settings are a mix between low and medium (the LOD is scaled WAY back) and they had to cut the VTOL levels.
    The high quality object motion blur got replaced by the same shitty low quality default blur from crysis 2.

    It's a trollpost/sarcastic post:p just look at the tone, he is pulling your leg:p the state of the art tv part is a dead giveaway.

    @ gundato: dissing deux ex's gameplay (which is varied and elaborate)....
    If I didn't know that account is a forum personality made for trolling and taking the piss out of everything I'd get mad.

    Killzone 2 is a anti-war game. It made me feel like I'm in a miserable place where I didn't want to be, just like war I presume?

    I actually saw a few similarities between Halo and Crysis when I came to playing the latter. The overall feel felt not worlds apart, especially in the latter half of the game.

    Anyhow, I really enjoy the Halo series. The campaign has had its ups and downs; 1 was great, probably remaining the best, whilst 2 and the first half of 3 never really did much for me. Of course, when you get to The Ark in 3, it really turned it up and notch and was damn good. I felt Reach, as an entire package, was excellent, with a highly enjoyable campaign, great multiplayer, fantastic horde mode in Firefight and Forge providing a ton of possibilities. I've kept saying to people that I would love for Reach to come onto the PC.

    With Halo 4, I feel like I've definitely been sucked into the hype once more, but I felt it pay off with 3 and Reach and I'm now trying to decide if the campaign alone is worth it for a rental, or if I should just dismiss the new trilogy as something I'll never play and the Chief's story ends where it does at the end of 3. I don't know.

    I think Halo gets a lot of stick all over the place, but it's sort of understandable that it got so massive it was never going to cater perfectly to all the people it had enticed. For me, it offers a usually pretty damn good campaign in an interesting sci-fi universe, with vibrant scenarios and good dialogue and characters (or at least good enough). The gameplay is fairly varied and is pitted well against some, generally speaking, very good AI. Halo is rarely "shoot all the bad dudes as they pop up" and more "Who do I need to take down first? Who is a better target? If I kill him, I'll have his weapon but then I'll still have these numbers against me." Then we have the multiplayer which as a slightly less frenetic arena shooter struck a chord with me.

    I don't think Halo is as good as the people who absolutely love it to no end believe it is, but I certainly really, really enjoy it. It's a damn shame it hasn't come to the PC past 2, and even with that the knowledge that if it was it'd be saddled with GFWL. Still, whenever I hear Halo being talked about for prolonged periods of time, I find myself fighting the urge to re-install 1.

    Metro Last Light is the biggest overhyped piece of shit game ever.

    Uhm... okay?

    Although, that actually DOES fit the tone of the thread pretty well. Random, emotional, and angry :p

    Hey, I love Deus Ex, but it is a product of its time. The combat is very generic, the controls are clunky, and the MIBs and MJ12 troops are pretty spongey. And the dialogue, while interesting, reeked of "first year film student" (which is still true of most games :p). Nothing is perfect. You can make a classic sound like trash or a horrible game sound amazing.

    And the thing is: Even though it had MANY mechanical problems (even at the time), the end result is amazing. That is the rest of that post, but I guess you just wanted the internet equivalent of a soundbite.

    The only thing that spoils Deus Ex is the fact you are gazillion dollar cyborg THAT CANT FUCKING SHOOT STRAIGHT.

    It does make me smile the way people seem to just ignore the faults of Deus Ex. The combat is atrocious, the dialogue is completely unnatural (starting a conversation about political philosophy with a random barman?) and delivered in an incredibly dull way, and the art direction is mostly pretty bland too. I would also disagree with Gundato on it actually having a good plot, as I always see it as the gaming equivalent of the Da Vinci Code.

    None of that stops it being an incredible game. Playing it today amongst the current crop of games, it stands out even more as something special.

    Except your ability to be wrong about everything you say in this thread, apparently.
