Games that take you out of your comfort zone:
That all you got?
Some of us are only comfortable playing a few game genres and are more affected by other kinds of games. Anyone else ever gotten a game that's aout of the ordinary from what they normally play?
I'm not much of a survival horror person, yet I've played Alan Wake
and have Metro2033
is kind of scary for me (it's the atmosphere, when it's straight up shooting I can handle it but the atmosphere on some of the levels is pretty creepy), but Alan Wake
didn't really do much.
That is the face of a man who just ate a kitten. Raw.
Starcraft has been this for me. I'm usually the action adventure type, so playing a game that involves so much strategy is weird.
Forum Herald for the Old Folk's Home
Harvest Moon for painfully cutesy Japanese games in general and Bioshock for FP Ses
Warcraft 3. I had never played an RTS before then though I had seen them. It was...a thing.
Bioshock. I dislike FPS gameplay. A lot. Bioshock looked interesting though...
If someone wants to accuse us of eating coconut shells, then that's their business. We know what we're doing. - Achaan Chah
I usually stay around JRP Gs
and Nintendo's first-party titles, but I enjoyed KOTOR
and the first 2 Halo titles.

The House of Void/Hiphop
I'm not a strategy guy, but I really did like the look of Risk: Factions.

. Oddly, I have played (and enjoyed) the Parodius
The Leading Man
STALKER. No other game makes me shit myself.

Actually, that's a good point. I played Sengoku Rance
at the urging of a friend. I found out that it was an excellent strategy game, but...well...
Still pretty humorous, though. Even during the sex scenes.
And Ancient Domains of Mystery
jarred me with how complex it was.
One of my few regrets about being born female is the inability to grow a handlebar mustache. -Landstander
Never played RTS games until Command & Conquer

To Object or Not Object?
Not much of an strategy man myself, but I'm willing to make exceptions towards Disgaea and Warhammer 40k as long as I play as the Orks.
It's more frustrating waiting for the asskicking than the asskicking itself.

Normally I hate driving, but Mario Kart manages to make it fun.
I must be cruel, but to be kind
That bad may begin, and worse be left behind
Warrior of Light
Halo. I'm not into FPS, but I make an exception when it comes to Halo.
. Haven't touched one since Final Fantasy 8. Dunno why, but I just couldn't get the hang of it.
Would you believe I never fully watched the original Indiana Jones trilogy? I gotta correct that someday.
This tiny forest is where all the action is!
. I don't care for casual games, but this one is quite addicting, enough that I bought it a second time for my iPod and play it a lot.
Any 2D fighting game does this to me because I'm not used to the speed and intricate combo imputs. I guess BlazBlue
is the most recent for me.
The Metroid Prime
trilogy and Water Warfare
for FPS's. I normally don't care for them at all, but MP has Samus Freakin' Aran
, and awesome puzzles. And Water Warfare
is, pardon the pun, good clean fun.
I really do like BioShock
too, but because of the aesthetic (which wows me to pieces), not the gameplay.
"Proto-Indo-European makes the damnedest words related. It's great. It's the Kevin Bacon
of etymology." ~Madrugada
I normally don't like RT Ss
. Can't stand the interface in most of them.
But Dungeon Keeper
is the odd exception. Maybe it's because I can possess units for direct FPS-style control so that they're actually competent in combat. Same for Activision
just keep smiling...
Any horror survival game. I play rpgs and tactics games.
I barely play first person shooters at all, but Painkiller
had me hooked for quite a while because it's just so much damn fun to play. Awesome weapons, interesting level design, and a whole array of unlockable special powers.
I hate sports games. But NBA Jam
came with my Super NES
, so I decided to give it a shot. Turns out it's friggin' awesome. Fast-forward four years and I even plunk down $50 for the Wii version.
