Problem?
The best games came from indie developers and/or decent people who understand story telling and immersing gameplay.
Hollywood blockbuster like CoD are mainly made for casuals, and today the casuals are the majority.
Okay, here's an example. Max payne 3 is made by decent people, has good cinematic story telling and immersing gameplay.




oh wait it has action in it, obviously the worst game ever.

Of course not, Max Payne has always been about the John Woo bullet time jumps and gun fights; it's just the setting that disappoints people. Apart from Brazil being one of the most overused settings in media today, Max Payne is a New York noir story. There's nothing noir at all about the unbearable heat and landscape of Rio (presumably), except maybe heavy downpour every now and then. It seems like at least some of the game is set in New York though where he looks like himself so it who knows. I just hope the comic book panels are still in.

My favorite game(s) is the Sly Cooper Trilogy, these were some of the most epic games around in my days for the PS2... and their even working on a fourth one for PS3 coming this fall!

Yeah they're great. Too bad they're not on PC or I'd replay them.

RE: What is your favorite game?

I'll do a few genres.

For something like a free roam game, It'll have to be Shadows of Colossus. That game was beautiful. The design, the large world, and the plot! It really put you in there.

For a Puzzle Game, the Portal Series. The series is a great way to get your mind a bit "active", and the humor always makes me crack a smile.

For an interesting RPG game, Final Fantasy is pretty kewl. The characters are interesting, and so is the plot.

That's all I can really think of right now... Undecided

RE: What is your favorite game?

My favorite game of all time probably has to be the Metal Gear Solid series. I never played the first one when it came out due to me not understanding the game at all. But a few years ago, I bought it on the PS Store and beat it within 3 days. Went out to find the 2nd and 3rd. I beat those fairly quickly. Then I went on to play MGS 4, which was done in about 22Hrs played time.

The series is fantastic. I have the MGS HD collection for Xbox, and I plan on playing that as soon as I have the time.

Also, a few of my favorite games for the SNES have to be Chrono Trigger, Super Castlevania IV, Super Metroid, Legend of Zelda: A Link to the past.

RE: What is your favorite game?

I have so many favorite games...



Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine

Gothic

Risen

The Witcher

Need For Speed: Porsche Unleashed

Penumbra

Amnesia

Silent Hill

World Racing

Tomb Raider

Shade: Wrath Of Angels



etc. etc.



Actually, I'm working on enhancements for "Gothic 3". This old game from 2006 has the best graphics of all time in my opinion. Better than all the overhyped DX11 casual shooters.
