if a video game doesn’t give you battered wife syndrome… than its just eye candy

this game is boring as fuck, and I cannot figure out why.

I watch youtube videos of Grand Theft Auto V, I hyperly determine myself to buy an xbox and get this game immediately. It is the most beautiful and amazing thing I have witnessed in the realm of next generation gaming, something like this rarely piques my interest, and the fact it is getting me excited, is kind of a nice distraction to have. So I shell out the cash, spend the $60, spend an additional $150 on a 250gb xbox 360. This is it! the work of my labor has finally offered opportunity to spoil myself, with some some amazing and legendary as GTA V. Let me just say, that after acquiring this game and getting the excitement built up, I felt like a hard erect penis that couldn’t ejaculate. It was like the most disappointing anti-climax. The game was absolute shit. It became boring as fuck.

no stock market bullshit, just hack and slash fun

I stopped playing it after getting Trevor and doing a couple more missions, and just found myself less and less interested. So I pick up Diablo 3 and that game conquered the system and my time. Hell made me forget all about GTA V. I was having a lot more fun playing D3, and I never really played GTA V again. D3 though did leave me a little in the dark, I would rather be playing it on PC. In this time, my xbox gaming was left at a standstill, my interest was declining.

Fast Forward to May, and what is this free game with gold? Dark Souls? hrm never heard of it. Wasn’t too thrilled but I like the idea of an action rpg, so I give it a go. The game literally crushed me, it made me its bitch. But like the good little whore that I am, I came back again and again, like a bruised and battered prostitute. Yes Dark Souls made me its bitch. The more I play the more competent I become, but then the game just literally wrecks you, but what is so beautiful about this game is that it keeps you lured in. It is absolutely one of the most rewarding and challenging games in this genre that I think I have ever played. The world is vast and beautifully laid out, and its all tied together, you find a key you open up a path that was previously non-enter able. Its difficulty takes me back to the days of 8-bit and 16-bit gaming, where they just mercilessly make you there bitch, and have no remorse. It brought back to me the true spirit of gaming, which I find to be lost in the current generation of games. If this is the future, I am actually kind of excited to see what is next in store.

this is your destiny

I have played Dark Souls religiously, ever since I got it free on live. I have put something like a 100 hours in, and I can say that a large chunck of the time, was repeated errors and just death after death. But holy shit, it has the ability to grip you in, and you absolutely don’t want to stop, you want to keep trying and trying. You feel more and more confident with each death, with each lesson learned. And then the spoils of your labor make it all worth it.

Highly challenging, highly addictive… this game gives me a huge boner, and for good reason.

    I absolutely love your writing style- you use humor and describe everything to great info. You kept me hooked and made me read the entire entry, which is commendable since I get bored by most blogs.

    I'm a bit fan of video games, and I have to agree on GTA V. I only have GTA IV, but I got bored quick while playing it. It's fun at first, and then it's the same thing over and over again.

    The only games I really recommend are Gears of War (especially the 2nd one), The Last of Us (unfortunately only on playstation 3, coming out for playstation 4), and Sims. Sims (the 3rd) is really not violent at all, but great if you're really creative. I usually play violent games, but this one got me really hooked ever since I was young. There's a lot of things to do on it.

    Oh! I almost forgot- for the PC, I suggest DayZ. It's in alpha/beta mode, but it's great already. However, it does get a bit boring sometimes.

    Anyway, time for me to go. Adios, keep on posting, I'll definitely read your stuff!

    Well thank you, it's nice to know somebody is actually reading this.

    I played the first Gears of War, and loved it… have to check out the second, especially if you recommend it over the first. I've heard a lot of good things about The Last of Us, I want to check it out. I might get a ps3 just for the sheer fact it has Demon Souls on it, which is the predecessor to Dark Souls… which is absolutely the most game I've played in a long long time.

    As for PC, that's a stretch for me… currently running a intel core duo, with onboard intel graphics which cant do much. I wanna build a PC one of these days, I miss gaming on it.

    Thanks a bunch, I'll have to check out your blog.

    Haha no problem! I just started my blog and not many people are really reading it. However, it's probably kind of boring :P.

    And yeah, I play GoW 2 when I was younger with my brother. If you have someone to play with it, it is absolutely awesome. Even if you don't, though, the campaign is fantastic and so is the horde mode. The Last of Us is a fantastic game, but if you're not big into stories on games you may not like it. Some people play just for fun, which I respect :). I've actually never heard of Demon Souls, but I have heard of Dark Souls. I gotta try out both when I have the time!

    And I completely understand where you're coming from with the onboard intel graphics. I had one with that and it could barely run Minecraft, let alone Sims 3 haha. I just switched out the graphics card for a mediocre, not-so-amazing yet good card (about $100, it is Radeon 6670 I believe :]). If you don't have the money you could easily make your machine work by switching out one thing or another, but even that's pretty expensive. One day I'll build a PC lol.

    And thank you! I find your blog very interesting, you have a different insight on things.
