F.E.A.R. Platinum: FEAR + FEAR Extraction Point + FEAR Perseus Mandate
FEAR is a very fun FPS game. This is mostly due to reflex time (slow motion). Without it i doubt the game would be as good.
There is also the creepy atmosphere that keeps it interesting, although not creepy enough.
The gameplay is where this game shines for me, its great, better than modern FPS's:
You are able to hold up to 3 weapons.
There is no button to go into cover, instead you stand or crouch behind walls and objects and can lean out to shoot.
No regenerating health. You can carry 10 health packs. And pick up armor.
No cut scenes, you're always in control of the protagonist
And of course the slow mo.
The game is gory. You can tear enemies apart with bullets. Even blow heads off with shotguns
The story is pretty good, characters are good even though you spend most of your time alone and dont get to interact with them much.
However, the game seems to be more fun and creepier at the beginning.
But afterwards it gets a little repetitive. You fight the same enemies throughout the game.
I wish i didnt spend so much time indoors, and more time outside in the streets.
Sound design is also amazing. Just the sound of walking or climbing or swimming sound so good.
The weapons, especially the shotgun, sound great.
However what this game is missing is a soundtrack. There is no background music to get you pumped up, especially during battle sequences.
One of the best FPS I've played.

And so ends the greatest game trilogy ever.
Well the Reapers are finally here, its time to end this war once and for all.
The gameplayis not as good as ME2.
Getting into cover causes problems some time. Scanning isnt fun anymore because you keep having to watch for Reapers showing up.
Navigating the map also suck.
But the real problem are the endings.
Not that the endings are bad. It was touching, I almost cried.
The problem is the way it was executed i think.
I felt like all i did in the 3 games was really pointless, i dont even get closure, a real satisfaction:
Spent my time making allies, making tough choices, gathering assets, building an army and dont even get to see them in action.
I can say more about the endings but i wont.
Despite my mixed feelings about the ending,
this was a great game and a great trilogy.

The best game of the trilogy.
The gameplay was updated.
This time you are working with Cerberus to stop the "Collectors".
You get a new team. At first i didnt like it but i came to really appreciate my new team, since investing in them actually pays off in the end.
A great game.

A great game.
You can customize your characters appearance and personality. Level up your abilities and skills. You can be nice or mean.
Good plot: takes place in outerspace, ancient beings are coming back to destroy civilization as they always did in the past and its up to you to stop it.
Great characters, you can even start a relationship with some of them.
Not only are there humans but also aliens.
Great dialogue, there is alot of talking, this game is not just shooting.
Great enemy, this may be the first time in a game where the boss was actually able to make me wonder how am i gonna win, can we actually beat him.
Great conclusion, but its only the beginning.
A great trilogy.

First of all I wasn’t too fond of the game being released in episodes, but I guess the goal was the suspense, so thats understandable.
This game has very good characters, and a very good story.
The gameplay consists mostly of conversation options and quick time events.
Now the game constantly reminds me that my options change the story or the outcome of the game…unfortunately…it doesn’t.
And that’s what I don’t like about this game.
My choices don’t change much. The story goes where the developers say the story goes regardless of your choices.
If they say you are gonna miss, you’re gonna miss.
If they say this person is gonna die then this person is gonna die. Etc.
I didn’t feel in control.

I heard alot of negative reviews for this game.
I understood that the game might be disappointing seeing its long production time, but it cant be that bad.
So i played the game and its not bad.
Now ive played DukeNukem 3D. Its a very good game. And im not a Duke fan and i havent been waiting forever for this game. So maybe unlike many other i did not have super high expectations.
Here are the bads:
-I dont like 2 gun limit. I want to be able to hold a pistol, shotgun, machine gun, rpg and more at the same time. (However with THE DOCTOR WHO CLONED ME DLC the limit is 4 which is great)
-Regenerating health. Not good for a Duke game.
-The graphics are not bad but some times there was this weird flickering of the screen.
-The freeze ray is useless.
-Bosses can only be killed with explosive weapons (rpg). Not even the shotgun helps.
-Duke's one-liners are kinda funny sometimes.
-You get funny references to other games like HalfLife 2, Dead Space, Mario, etc
-Cool weapons from Duke 3D, especially my favorite the Shotgun.
-Health bar is an "Ego" bar, kinda funny.
-Able to boost Egobar by interacting with certain things
-Changes in the gameplay: shooting, driving, swimming, shrinking,
Duke Forever is a pretty good game. Just relax and enjoy it. And laugh every now and again.
+ THE DOCTOR WHO CLONED ME DLC
A short and sweet and funny dlc.
And visiting the Burning Bush was fun, wish there was more to do there though.

This game is wacky, over the top, funny, bad *** and epic.
The missions are fun, the characters are funny.
You can customize yourself and your gang.
Alot of weapons, alot of cars. Many of them are wacky.
Areas to take over. A nice sound track.
Sometimes it feels like playing a movie.
If you are too uptight and dont like just having some silly fun then this game is not for you.

Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition including Duke Nukem 3D Classic, Duke it Out in DC, Duke Nuclear Winter and Duke Caribbean.
A pretty good FPS.
Aliens are invading and you must stop them.
You get a variety of weapons, my favorite being the shotgun.
Items like Fist Aide, Steroids, Jet Pack, NightVision Goggles.
Each level has a different theme. The levels are not linear. You need to find keys (red, blue, yellow) to open specific doors. You can uncover secret locations. There are puzzles to solve.
The game also has some nice fan service.

One of the first PC games i played. A fun game. Wish the story was deeper.
You're stuck in the same town getting quests from the same people.
But still fun.

GTA Vice City.
Tommy Vercetti, the Harwood Butcher. Gets setup during a drug deal and is on a mission for revenge, and to take over Vice City while he's at it.
Beautiful city of Vice City, nice cars, fun radio station.
You even get to play a scene referencing Scarface.
Some of the missions get frustrating and you have to do them multiple times but when you beat each mission and then the entire game without using cheats, thats a good feeling.
