need a new game to play

Postby CiRuS on Sun Dec 08, 2013 6:16 pm

Hello everyone. I require a new game to play. I want something I can play offline, that lasts longer than 6 hours (average time it takes me to complete fps taking my time), that isn't a racing game. I'm bored of TF2 and DoDs at the minute, just seems to be the same thing over and over and I'm starting to wonder why I bother with them. Just wanting something to keep my attention. Skyrim was brilliant for it, but having completed it 4 times now I need something new. Either PC or X360.

Suggestions?

Bioshock Infinite was good, but I found that a bit short. Great story though. Don't Starve is also very good and can take a lot longer depending on how long/many deaths it takes you to find the portal to start the adventure itself :)
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

As mentioned, give Bioshock a go then redo it on 1999 mode without buying anything from vendors (achievement for that too) will be a pain but I just managed it :D

Borderlands 2 has A LOT to do farming to 72, DLC's and then doing the overpowered levels etc which I'm now going through it all, will give you MANY hours of gameplay.

Actually, if you picked up fear 3 in the sale that on the hardest setting is quite good, a few bits got me until I realised what you had to do trying to kill something lol

I really do recommend Borderlands 2, it's in the steam sale pretty cheap, the DLC too.
I've got Bioshock Infinite to play next, but the hours really do disappear playing Borderlands2!

The amount of variety in Dark Souls will keep you occupied for more than 6 hours.

You'll also be able to come up with continuous streams of profanity longer than six hours, which is quite a talent in itself.

I suggest you look at http://www.reddit.com/r/GameDeals for some good games on sale, mostly pc.
If your unfamiliar with the game, theres normally plenty of youtube videos to show you the game.

If you play Borderlands 2, the main campaign is quite quick even in true vault hunter mode (addon you need to buy I think and has a second one granting you 11 more levels) to get to level 61. The DLC's are quite fun but depending if you rush stuff like I do then can be quick. You will have a lot to do if you do buy the second vault hunter mode to get to 72, do the big bosses, farm overpowered mode and things. If you are an achievement hunter then it will keep you going for many hours including unlocking all of the challenges and maxing those if you are a perfectionist. That being said, with the harder difficulties you will need to get the right guns else they just do not take much damage. You can drive in it, two DLC's that add two more classes and codes you can get to open a special chest, there is a lot to do but wait for the GOTY edition on sale this christmas on steam.

I've played both borderlands and the story is good but I find it gets repetitive and has a "farming" feel to it. I lost a solid week to Galactic civilizations II, it's old and a simple game but it's bloody hard to beat. You just need to max out everything (Map size, planets, stars etc.) and then set the win rules to total domination (none of this lazy tech victories or diplomacy victories).

Only other thing I would suggest is the recent Final Fantasy games on Steam (VII & VIII) and maybe playing through the Deus Ex series (The latest Deus Ex directors cut version is quite good and the improvements made the game a lot more fun if you chose the path of hacker/stealth).

If you like strategy games i recommend anno 1404 with venice expansion and C&C Generals + Zero Hour, best single player rts games ever made.

If you liked Skyrim i would also recommend The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and Dragon Age Origins + Awakening both solid games.

FPS games S.T.A.L.K.E.R series , Doom 3 , Painkiller , Metro , F.E.A.R , Medal of Honor: Allied Assault (old but amazing and a must play)

http://www.kongregate.com/ this website has some surprisingly awesome games all free to play, Rebuild series and Sonny series are definitely worth a look ive spent about 100 hours on them.
