My little jungle: Tattoos are magic

GameCritics: So, Far Cry 3.

I can't say that I've been a fan of this series, but all the pre-release chatter had piqued my curiosity, and it seemed as though the game was going to attempt to tell a more serious, darker sort of story.

I put about six hours into it over last few days, and... I'm done. I am literally so bored that I am choosing to just quit the game and move onto something else.

Two big issues here. The first is that the story flat-out sucks.

Things started off well with a brutal introductory sequence, but it's hard to invest in the idea that a pasty, spoiled kid becomes a man-killing terror of the islands within the blink of an eye, and that's entirely apart from the fact that it's tough to feel sympathy for a rich douchebag who gets kidnapped while partying in the tropics alongside his rich, douchebag friends.

Few games have a passable story, let alone really good ones. And the few that are really good, the story is the only component worth a damn.

Yeah, the story sucks, but who really expects a game like FC3 to have a deep narrative? To focus the valuable time their allotted for a secondary component? Some people just need to check their standards.

Really? A rich douche with magic tats saving the day ruined the experience? Because that's the most over-the-top idea in the history video games?

Not liking a game is one thing. But expecting something great out of a genre that said genre rarely does well is another.
