Ok ladies, fair folk and gentle people. Time to review my game queue. Yes, I do have a game queue. It gives a much needed direction to my life. This is how it looks right now. Crossed out entries are the ones that I already played and reviewed or decided not to play (hover the mouse over). Underlined items are new.
- Mass Effect
- Prince of Persia
- The Witcher
- Dark Messiah of Might and Magic
- Mount & Blade
Mirror’s Edge GTA3
Again, there is no particular rhyme or reason to the order of the games here. Er… That would make it a non-queue, would it. It would be more like an un-ordered set of games. Hey Chris, this actually might be a real life example of an un-orderable set. Ie. I pick the games from this list on a whim, and I do not know ahead of time which one is going to be next. As it can be seen from the list above, the order of appearance does not impact the order in which it will be played. For example I played Cirisi, then Bioshock, then Farcry, then Assassin’s Creed and etc…
Oh, btw – I should probably comment on Assassin’s Creed here. I shelved the game. I didn’t un-install it from my system yet but I stopped playing it due to the fact it was repetitive and the save system was beyond fucked up. I’d play it more if it wasn’t for the checkpoint system. Each time I wanted to launch the game I had to ask myself: “Do I have enough time to actually do all the investigations and reach the office today?” Usually the answer was no.
You see, I’m a hit and run gamer – I like to launch the game, play for an hour or two and then go do something else. AC sort of insisted that I put in at least 2 hours each time I play and that just killed the game for me. Yeah, I know – it supposedly saves after each successful investigation, or each time you climb one of those big towers. I found that iffy – sometimes it saved, and other times it would boot me back to an earlier state.
I haven’t abandoned the game yet, but I had to put it away for a while. I will likely revisit it later.
In the meantime, I wanted to ask you for suggestions for games to be added to my que… I mean set. Note that I have a beast of a PC but no current gen consoles in the house. As you can probably see from the list above I’m mainly into RPG and FPS games but I’ll play anything that has an interesting story and/or is fun. I generally don’t digest strategy games that well – especially the RTS kind, though I do sometimes make exceptions for the SF based ones. Especially if they have a cool story.
