Sick of spending $60 for a game, taking it home and beating it in one night. We are too so here is a list of games that will definitely stretch your dollar
Its nice to stretch a buck. These are some great games. Even with the high price tag I think far cry 3 was a lot of bag for the buck because there is so much to do in the game.
I bought it at Target when it was knocked down to $30! I have no previous experience in Far Cry games but one of my friends always told me how he loved Far Cry 2, and after the great reviews FC3 got, I had to buy it to see what the commotion is about. I have yet to play it but I will very soon.
Skyrim - 300 HRS and currently playing it :) Best 30 I have spent. Edit: For people thinking about buying this game, dont let the slow pace begging fool you, the games pick up when you start leveling up and discovering more places.
Where's Guild Wars 2? It should be at the top of the list at $60 as it equals out to what? A nickel per hour with no monthly commitment!?
Played every one if those (except Dead Rising) and they are all worth the money.
Dead Rising for the 360 is an amazing game. I love that game.
Good call on Red Faction: Guerilla, I loved that game just for the open world and physics alone. Being able to destory a building with just a sledgehammer is so much fun lol
Can anyone think of any others to add to the list?
Soul Sacrifice Disgaea Series Monter Hunter Series Assassin's Creed series BlazBlue Series All Atlus games Lost Odyssey etc, etc, etc, etc...
X3:The Reunion, and its expansions. Tons and tons of stuff to do. Also worth mentioning Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac, cheap games with so much quality and content they put a lot of full price games to shame.
Just Cause 2 Grand Theft Auto Pokemon LittleBigPlanet 1 + 2
Persona 3 and 4 would have done well on this list.
Dark Souls, anyone? Got 62 hours on it, and I only just arrived in Anor Londo on my first playthrough.
I agree with you. Now out of those 62 hours I would've played the game, I would've wasted about 40 hours collecting lots of souls and then dying and loosing them all. Son of a bitc... Lol
That, right there, is the beauty of Dark Souls. Trial and error, depth and rewardment, blood, sweat and tears.
Dark souls is BY FAR the best game this generation, for me. No game has shit on this, and I'm a primarily FPS fan.
the Rayman challenge app... I have played the hell out of that since it came out and it was free. Literally no idea where the last week and a half went.
I can't wait for the next fallout game... anyone else?
THE #1 Game I am looking forward to on the next gen consoles. I really hope they are working on it now. That and Metal Gear Solid 5 :)
I'll be looking out for that and Witcher 3.
Jetpack Joyride :D Infinite value lol
Pretty much any western rpgs...elder scrolls and the fallout series have by far the biggest bang for your buck this gen.
I don't regret a single bit buying Skyrim,Fallout 3,New Vegas and Dragon's dogma, it gave me so much more than what i paid for it
RuneScape - over 4000 hours [Spent 80$ for Membership, game is free] MGO2 - 1143 HOURS + MGS4 38 hours = 1181 HOURS [90$] Resistance Fall of Man - Over 500 hours [60$] Fallout 3 - 252 HOURS [60$] MGSCollection - Peace Walker 90 hours/MGS3 35 HOURS/MGS2 27HOURS = 152 hours[35$] Demon Souls - over 200 HOURS [40$] Skyrim - 186 Hours [60$] Oblivion - 177 HOURS [30$] COD4 - OVER 100 HOURS [60$] Those are my longest played games.
This is one of the reasons why I love Bethesda games, and have no problems buying their work at full price.
Guild Wars 2 Simcity 2000 Warhawk Mount and Blade: Warband Terraria
Given that I rarely take the time to finish any game that isn't an indie one, it's irrelevant to me which might provide the best 'value for money'. If anything, I prefer my games to bee relatively short. Anything over 25 hours is certainly overkill for me. Oh and since these are all FREE, or have been free, on Playstation Plus I think you'll find that they are the best value for money. And no matter what their length surely it matters more to fell a compulsion to come back to a game, giving more and more gaming hours, no matter how short it is, like Motorstorm Apocalypse, than the intrinsic length of the game. Plus what percentage you would give the game in a review is one of the most significant affecters of its value for money to you. I can feel slightly ripped off of mere time if I a critically acclaimed game is free but I don't like it. So overall this article is pointless. It's like having an article saying that a supermarket offers more value for money than an art gallery because the supermarket might give you longer to look at their produce. Free Playstation Plus games: Catherine Bioshock 2 Infamous series Various Assassin Creeds Motorstorm Apocalypse etc..
the witcher 1 guild wars 2 baldurs gate 2 shadow of amn morrowind oblivion skyrim fallout 1 and 2 fallout 3 and vegas icewind dale series neverwinter nights series starcraft series dark/demons souls dragons dogma
The reasoning behind the article is fine but it fails on some parts of the article. When speaking on a game that gives you the most for your money, it's a bit unfair saying, "I waited and got this game for $2.99" and factor that into the price divided by playtime. You can wait until literally any game drops in price. He mentioned the $60 price tag so every game should have been divided by that, or atleast their full MSRP since a lot of games don't start at $60.
disgaea, rainbow moon, ni no kuni, demon/dark souls, any good MP game(racing, shooting etc), any good FTP MMO..off the top of my head.
I think these were were worth more than the asking price though. Batman Arkham City Just Cause 2 The Saboteur Oblivion(never played Skyrim.) Grand Theft Auto 4 Complete Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition Yakuza series Super Meat Boy Torchlight Torchlight 2 Guild Wars Dragon Warrior 7 Most JRPGs
