Would Dragon Age 2 count? I genuinely enjoyed it but I know a lot of others were less than pleased

Certainly of recent times, Hitman Absolution has to be up there.

In all honesty I think Snow was the more interesting character in Final Fantasy 13, Lightning was a b*tch for most of the game and incredibly unlikeable. I am however Looking forward to Lightning returns but not because of Lightning. I'm invested after finishing 13-2 only to see 'To be continued'. I want to know how the story ends.

I hate how people say Deadly Premonition is 'so bad, its good' That's a pretty pathetic way to define a game. Was it up to the visual standards of other games at the time? No, it looked like a game still in development for the Playstation 2. Was the game play revolutionary? Hell no, its was incredibly derivative and poorly executed, not to mention the controls being pretty dire too. What it did have was a great story and quite an array of weird and creepy characters. Sticking with it when my initial impressions were ''what did I just waste my money on'' is one of the best gaming decisions Ive made in recent years. The final few twists I never saw coming at all and not to mention the game throws some surprisingly good boss fights at you from out of nowhere.

Seems like a good choice. I also enjoyed it and in some ways thought it superior to Dragon Age Origins. Not sure that you are allowed to say that but there it is.

I brought and finished Deadly Premonition last week. I thought it was alright. Just buy it, It works best when you dont know whats coming up and if you read enough reviews it will dampen the impact of the insane moments. Its a bit like LA Noire (you are trying to solve a murder) with Majoras Mask (Theres a map and a town and loads of side quests) and also Resident Evil 4 (Zombies attack you). It doesnt live up to any of those game and it failed to scare me. I am a bit werid myself so nothing really surprised me in it.

After finishing it I have moved on to ironically moved on to Final Fantasy XIII. I love it. Its my first one. I love Lightning. I want to marry her

Final Fantasy XIII was the first game in the series I really played, even though I played a bit of FFX prior to it. I only played the first 20 or so hours, but I genuinely enjoyed every bit of it. I liked the world, the story, the characters, and the graphics were amazing. The combat was fun too with the ever present battle music driving you forward. I've been meaning to start again and progress past from when I left off and this article might push to actually do so.

its levelling system may be one of the best ever implemented in any Final Fantasy title


No...just no. The leveling system was basically the sphere grid from ten....with zero choice.

The biggest problem most people had with this game was that there was no exploration, no choice in where you go, just an endless corridor from which there was no escape. This extends to the leveling system which is basically a straight line. Why even bother with all that flowery nonsense disguising the fact that characters have no choice when it comes to leveling, why not just give them a point for however many XPs and have them spend it in that class and just gain the relevant upgrades and skills, and then there was the artificial limits, restricting your ability to advance until a certain line had been crossed in the narrative. Basically you fight when told, you advance when told. This really should have been a visual novel, might have made the whole thing just tolerable to me.
