Case in point, I bought KOTOR 1 off the gamestop PC store app, and it worked fine.

Yet on Steam you hear issues of stuttering, hard crashes, glitches and stuff.

It works great for SOME new games. -COUGH- ARKHAM KNIGHT!!! -COUGH-

But for a lot of the games, I'd rather pirate a game then buy it off steam because it'd probably run better.

Even Skyrim under recommended settings was running like shit for me, and this was when my pc was in good condition.


That's complete bullshit.

Speaking of Gamecube..the game "Eternal Darkness Sanity's Requiem" is awesome. A cool game about cosmic horrors.

Yeah, I'd spend hours just creating new characters and tweaking their powers. Sometimes I'd create huge battle royals and put both sides under the control of the computer and watch the carnage. But yeah the mod link I posted adds even more stuff to it, I spent over an hour going over the new attributes.

It's actually not, I had problems with the KOTOR series on Steam as well, though not the same problems. For me on Steam KOTOR 1 works perfectly. But KOTOR 2 has one big flaw in that the camera messes up and begins to slowly rise up higher and then it just goes to a weird angle and it just makes the game unplayable. But a non-steam version of KOTOR 2 worked fine.

Though speaking of that I will put KOTOR 2 on the greatest games nobody played, for one reason: most people who have played it have not played the most complete version. You see a lot of content was cut out. But this content has been restored for the PC version so you can download it and apply it, Steam even has it for download too. It adds cutscenes and some new items and quests. One of the new things is you go with HK-47 on a mission to the droid factory.

That's par for the course for any game, especially PC games.

KOTOR 2 was plagued with bugs on all versions. I remember the PC version having huge issues. You can make the case that Steam shouldn't be selling a product that doesn't work (even though it's normal for PC games to work for some people and it doesn't for others), and allow refunds (before they did) but Valve is under no obligation to fix the product. It's just a store.

Cool new additions like telekinesis.

I always thought the second game was the best. It does neat stuff like allowing you to play as Timemaster.


They had that for base FF, too. Summoning mechs had Kyle Rayner written all over it.

Ever play that one mod that had Wolverine and Minuteman teaming up against Predators and aliens and all kinds of stuff? Somehow, they got Minutemans voice actor for it.

That JLA mod was great, too. Based on the animated series, with nods to the Crisis and 90's comic book history.

I never played Ico or Shadow of the Colossus despite always hearing good things. Also never tried and of the God of War games. Or any of the Battlefield games.

Just dug of Freedom Force and that crossover mod. It was called The Great Hunt, and it started out with Wolverine, Martian Manhunter, and Minuteman teaming up.

And as I just rediscovered, it was also friggan impossible. The first mission puts Wolverine against Grundy, Shocker, and Electro all at once. The second mission has you trying to stop the Wrecking Crew from destroying a school, a Predator, Shocker, and Grundy run interference. What makes the second especially impossible, is the buildings are made of cardboard.. They go down in under ten seconds against a cl 100, let alone a group of them..

Shadow of the Colossus is great. One of my favorites. Unfortunately, I couldnít get into Ico at all. Perhaps I would have enjoyed it had I played it when it was initially released rather than over a decade later when the HD remaster was released. Itís makes me wonder if I would enjoy SotC had I played it for the first time on the HD remaster rather than the initial release.

Interestingly enough, I just finished a replay of KotOR 2 on steam and I didnít run into any problems at all.

Hmm, perhaps they were able to fix the problem. Though I don't think everyone who played it experienced problems so it could just be that. Also whenever I have the game open if I plug my controller in the camera begins spinning around uncontrollably.

On that note I'm still surprised when I come across the more recent PC games that do not support controllers. Some only support xbox 360 controllers. Though there are ways to fool them into thinking your controller is a 360 one.

I had to think about this for a while. I don't know if it's any good, but I've always wanted to play Monster Hunter for the Wii. Never got the system though.

Tri is not all that good as far as MH games go. The water combat is a bit broken and uneven, the rooster of monsters and weapons is fine but Switchaxe and Slime are unbalanced.

The best ones are definitely either the ones on the PSP or the 3DS.

Its not unbalanced. You can kill any monster in the game with Slime just as fast as you can with Sword & Shield.

Unless they left more things unbalanced on Tri then they did 3 Ultimate.

Battlefield games are best played online, The single player campaigns for them are usually shit.

Serpent in the Staglands, which is now on Steam. One of those quality indie RPG's that come to places like Steam. It's on GOG too despite coming out in 2015:



In case anyone is wondering the trailer contains gameplay footage too.

Best games I've never played that are very mainstream hits:

- Bioshock
- The Last of Us
- Any Final Fantasy after IX (from fans and publications, X is always near the top, though I've heard from a friend and through following Dark Pixel that FFXII is great)

Games I consider great that never caught on with the masses:

- The Tex Murphy series of neo-noir cyberpunk adventure games. Starting specifically at Under a Killing Moon through The Tesla Effect, as Mean Streets was nigh-unplayable to me and Martian Memorandum takes a long time to get used to.
