Have you played Dark Souls? Many people skipped that game but many believe it to be a far superior RPG to anything that has come out in recent years, including Skyrim and others. Personally... I might even agree. It's not a new game obviously came out back in 2011, but it's great.

Playing Metro 2033 a bit in preparation for Last Light. Gotta say it's pretty average so far. Not bad but not great either. Last Light should be a lot better since 3 years have passed and the budget is much bigger this time around.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

It's considered one of the hardest modern games available and rewards smart thinking. If you play it like God of War then you will die, a lot, and fast. It requires slow, methodical movement and technique. You have to sort of re-write what you understand about RPG/action combat in games, re-program your brain into a new way of playing. It's hard to explain, but it's an amazing game.

Here's a few quotes on it from wiki that pretty much explain the reason why it's so good:

Quote:
The game is known for its considerable difficulty, which has prompted much interest and discussion.
Quote:
The challenging nature of the game provides a foundation of achievement and reward, reinforced by penalties upon player death
The combat is precise and crisp, it's pin-point. You swing only when you know you can hit and if you have enough time to shield up and dodge away. Normal enemies that walk around can kill you in 2-3 hits, and by normal enemies I'm talking fodder you would normally kill 50 of in a group in any other game going from room to room. Bosses normally 2 shot you.

The difficulty is skill based, not cheap. If you properly learn the attacks of enemies, learn your weight/roll speed/weapon type (very important things), and fight smart, you can normally have no problems with normal enemies and should only be fully challenged by bosses.

It's a system that rewards learning and playing intelligently, and penalizes any mistakes, I'm talking 1 mistake 2 minutes into a boss fight and you are dead, it's extremely rewarding and a great challenge.

i disagree the only thing semi hard about it is the bad camera angles at some points and the crappy combat system but I can still manage around that. M.C have you tried battletoads on an emulator or something yet? a nice challenge for you and it's not broken, also ghouls and ghosts, super ghouls and ghosts and ghosts and goblins are all nice challenges for you.

I beat all of them some years back. Battletoads was fun for the 5 hours or so it takes to beat it, some challenge to be had, highly overrated game overall, though. I never found ghouls and ghosts hard, like.. at all, in fact I never found it to be a good game either.

You can disagree, we all find challenge in different places.

hmm well battletoads was way harder for me because i was using a joypad and the second last stage you really need a proper nes controller to do it properly, now dragon's lair is a broken game have you played that? also i don't know if anyone else does but i love watching gamecenter cx the japanese retro game challenge show with english subs on youtube, obviously it's on fuji tv in japan but they are getting uploaded with fan made subs on youtube.

Dragon's Lair is indeed broken.
