Ironstar: Being an avid gamer, I often come across small periods of time where I cant find a good game to hold my attention for more than ten minutes. I call that a "gaming slump".
Even though it only just released recently here in the UK, I feel I'm going to be spending a lot of my free time for the foreseeable future wrapped up in Demons Souls. It just has such depth and challenge that no other game on consoles can match at the minute.
My "go-to" game is SSF4 and Uncharted 2 followed soon after. I love those games, their my "go-to" and chill games. Just got BlazBlu as well and it's crack. These titles will hold me off until the fall releases -- while I save money that is lol.
my go to game was advance wars dual strike i had more hours on that 1 game than most of you have on 5 of your games till some stupid kid lost it now my precious go to game is gone
My goto games when things get boring: Half Life 2 plus episodes 1 and 2 or Stalker Complete + Priobi Story I never ever get tired of these as the replay value is unlimited with various mODS added for new gameplay.
Blazblue. Even when I get a brand new game I still have to make time to play Blazblue.
SSF4, GOW3, UC2, MAG, KZ2, Demon Souls. I have many more games, but those are the ones that have me hooked the most. Still have to get Peace Walker...... Not sure if I should get the PSP3000 or PSPgo. What do you guys suggest?
Mine are SSF4, Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm, SOCOM & Halo.
FF 13. I don't get bored replaying this game. @below Yeah I get bored after a while as well. I just love staring at the beautiful graphics and animation of the game. haha
meh, the battle system is awesome, but the story drags, I guess the battlesystem is so rewarding that you can replay it, however I would get bored eventually.
Super metroid, Kingdom Hearts series, Castlevania series and a bunch of other games I missed out on over the years.
lately mass effect 1&2. nothing to play? let me start another shephard.
Uncharted 2 and Prince of Persia (2008). For some reason I never get bored of these two games.
I just got Assassins Creed 2 and Bioshock 2, after I beat those then its a waiting game for Reach.
But it was my friends and he took it back:(
Uncharted 2 and the orange box
During every summer game drought I would play LOZ OOT all the way through getting as many heart pieces and gold spiders. Thankfully I have Tatsunoko vs capcom, MH tri and NMH2 and soon... galaxy 2. So i haven't had to resort to it this year. But if i get bored of those... I can always plug in the ol' n64.
Bad Company 2, but I cant really play it for more than 2-3 hours a day, at the most. It just gets boring so quickly.
Uncharted 2 and Gears of War 2.
Uncharted 2 all day 4 more trophies for Platinum
For a long time, my go to game for this generation was Warhawk. Now it's MAG.
Rock Band 2. I have at least 100 hours in that game and it's still fun.
Anything Metal Gear, but Lately it's been Mass Effect 2!! (patiently awaiting Other M))) :D
I find myself keep going back to MAG.. with each match containing up to 256 live players you get a much harder rewarding game. Y'know with a.i. you can outsmart the cpu easily each time.. But real players sometimes get tricky... You have to really think... Turning your standard videogames from checkers into chess...
Morrowind for me, over 1000 hours in total gametime and I can still find things to do. Then there's always Oblivion, not as good as Morrowind imo, but there's always so many new mods to download and try. Plus I've just started playing Torchlight, easy, easy game to get sucked into I'm noticing. Meant to play 10 mins, ended up playing 1.5 hours. And another good one, the Stalker games.
My game has to be battlestations pacific 360 battlefield 2 and 2142 which is is still a brilliant fps on pc ps3 bad company 1 and quantum of solace and warhawk im crap at all of em but cause i used to make alot of model warships battlestations is the best its like a childhood dream.
I usually play Madden/Blitz/Backbreaker. Anything football.
Gears Gears and more Gears
I'll often pick out an SNES game I haven't played in awhile and play through it, like Prince of Persia, Out of this World, FLashback, Blackthorne or just about any SquareSoft game from the good ole SNES days. Sometimes, I'll go back even farther and play some NES games I loved when I was a kid, like Mike Tyson's Punch-Out! or Star Tropics. I like to see how fast I can beat Super Mario Bros. 2, my best is somewhere around 30 minutes, no where near speed run records, but I still have fun. Oh, and Psychonauts! I love that game.
Unreal tournament 3 on PC. 13 v 13 matches, either team deathmatch or just plain ol' deathmatch; always against bots. I've never played a mutliplayer FPS as fast paced as UT3. Even quake 3 etc which come in second best, are a distant second in terms of brutal fast combat. I can play for 10 minutes or an hr, it's always fun to go back to.
ultimate mortal kombat 3 on xbox live arcade! tekken 5/6. street fighter 4. i could also play games like resistance 2 and motorstorm PR for an unnatural amount of time. i think thats when you know you have a really good game on your hands...when it seems like youve barely had your daily fix but in reality you cant even remember when you stared playing for that day. often times ill fire up my 360 for alan wake or red dead redemption and never actually play them because i get side tracked giving in to the "just a couple quick matches" feeling i get while starting up UMK3. its actually kind of annoying because i never end up playing the 60 dollar game i just purchased- im too busy killing time with a $5 downloadable game.
Heroes of Might and Magc 3 They don't make em like that anymore...
Try this one out: Just click the chinese character on screen then select the 2nd option on the main menu. Awesome beat-em-up side scrolling action. http://www.flashanywhere.ne... -End statement
i love it!!!
FF13 WKC and now starting Trinity Universe...I'm a jrpg kind of guy lol
all those games chill me out pretty good =)
