The Binding of Isaac is one of my favourite games ever. It is different every time you play it, and the challenge of the game keeps you coming back for more, it can be tough. It also has more content than many full priced games out there.

And I'm looking forward to when it comes out on consoles because not only can console gamers also get to enjoy it, but I can get more content for my pc version as well.

I'd recommend it to anyone, excellent game.

When a scripted game makes skyscrapers collapse and everything explode around me, I feel nohting. It is not thrilling to me at all.

However, fighting a skilled enemy that can take me down at the slightest mistake is an experince that stays with me.

Two of my favorite games of all time are Ninja Gaiden Black and Dark Souls. They manage to feel cinematic by making every battle look and most importantly feel great, through thought out gameplay. I mostly don't need an "epic", laid out plot. I want to write my own story battle by battle.

I agree, thats why I play and make FC2 (360) escapemaps that are second to none when it comes to a challenge.

Play Escape The Trainyard or my Escape Wildwood SE ..... or if you are feeling like dwarf fortress is too easy try Escape The Rockies.

FC2? Far Cry 2?
