Loudninja6256d ago

pRo loGic II6256d ago

I enjoyed the first Area 51 on my Xbox. Didn't finish it though, long story.. Had to send the broken Xbox back to Gamestop, accidentally sent the rental disc back with the console, got a free new disc back to give back to the rental store, and a working Xbox. All in all I think I only had a chance to play it for about a day or two. I enjoyed the squad based parts a lot. Looking forward to the sequel.

Asuka6256d ago

wow, guess that wasn't your day now was it lol.

Anyway, it is a very cool game, you really should think about finishing the story, its pretty awesome. Online Multiplayer was amazing, no lag at all and always fast paced, even for the PS2 version!

I disagree that max is unlikable. Chloe is infinitely more unlikable in my opinion.

gold_drake2d ago

omg chloe was awful. i really hated her at the end haha

Cacabunga2d ago

Abby was absolute trash protagonist in every way..
Tidus was so meh to me..
On villain side, the one i didn’t like wa Micah, because they wanted him to be that way and it was brilliant👍🏽

Rancegamerx2d ago

I agree, I liked Max, Chloe was a horrible friend and a bad influence.

Cacabunga2d ago

Everyone agrees on chloe, I’m sure even ND do.

H92d ago

Both are horrible, granted Chloe is infinitely worse, it feels like Chloe is just fanservice for people who too over the edge and wasn't written to be a character that makes sense

MrChow6662d ago

exactly I was expecting it to be a the top of the list

ravens522d ago

Ye I was expecting her too. Guess they actually played the game. Unlike you and whoever agrees.

gpimlott1d 20h ago

I played through the whole game and think she is one of the worst character Ive ever played as

ravens521d 18h ago (Edited 1d 18h ago )

gpimlott. How?

Christopher2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

She's actually not bad. It's the writing itself that is bad overall, but she's fine overall. She's no worse than Miles Morales IMHO. Both thrust into a spotlight and receiving both praise and blame and dealing with it.

Forspoken is a bland game because it's 75% bland, boring, repetitive going through the motions and diversions that add nothing of the value with purposefully gated memory moments that don't feel organic or like you're discovering things but waiting for others to reveal things.

ravens522d ago

Exactly Chris. Even though I liked the game. I kno u played it. People who actually played it and went thru her dream saw she was a good likeable person who really just acted out due to being alone and unloved. I think your problem is it was open world, I think if it was more linear you may have liked it better.

savedsynner2d ago

Oh no she's bad. Very unlikable even before you add on the bad dialogue. The game could have been quite good with a good protagonist

ravens521d 23h ago

For all the people like synner. Shes actually half white lol. Inferior complexity is a hell of a thing. You'll be ok.

Nerdmaster3d ago

Most of these aren't even that bad. Especially comparing to others like Squall "Whatever" Leonhart, Forspoken's Frey, and the guy from Atomic Heart.

-Foxtrot2d ago

Squall is one of the best developed main FF characters so...

People talk about his "whatever" thing thats at the start of the game, not the character he eventually becomes in the end.

Nerdmaster2d ago

No amount of "character development", (especially the ones that for me feels sudden and undeserved like Squall's), will justify him being a d**k to my girl Quistis. Even if he found the cure for cancer, from that moment on, I would never like him.
The article is about being unlikeable, and he was indeed unlikeable for at least half of the game.
