Default The Last Game You Played Thread

Just thought I'd start this up. We talk about releases coming up, I know Mr. Dragon talked about starting up some reviews. We have this sort of thread for comic books, movies, and television. Why not video games?



Just beat this in the wee hours of the morning. I'm going to try and beat it, Awakening, and Dragon Age II, before Inquisition comes out in October.

Overall, I actually enjoyed it more than I did the first time through all the years ago when it first came out. Most of the game I used Morrigan, Leliana, and Oghren.

I played it on the PC with a HD mod installed so the graphics didn't feel quite as dated as they could have. The facial animations still irked me though, and holy shit the game has some of the worst facial hair in the history of video game facial hair.

I forgot just how much the system felt like the old Forgotten Realms BioWare games, with the tactical isometric 3rd person perspective. It was a breath of fresh air, compared to the more action based PC RPGs which have come out recently.

I respect the story now, more so than before after the popularity Game of Thrones. This game preceded the television show, yet you can feel the inspiration from the books. This is a very mature and fleshed out story. Within the backdrop that is the darkspawn and dragons, rests political intrigue, diverse and interesting characters. Choices and alliances that actually do have a profound impact on the world. All leading up to a pretty satisfying conclusion if played right.

If you have any interest in Inquisition coming out, I highly recommend checking out Origins to get you ready.

I've been playing this when I can squeeze it in.



Haven't played that much, though. Working a lot, and the kids want time on the game, too.

Started this up for the first time earlier.



Play this with Iggy for a couple of hours for my review coming up soon.



And still playing this right now for another review, and I'm enjoying the shit out of it.

Persona 3 & 4 are great games. I think I enjoyed 3 more.

The Last of Us- I finished the game a couple of weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. There's a version that's being released for the PS4, but it's going to be the same game. o_O

I think I'll either finish GTA V next or take up Uncharted 2.

I've been playing this a lot since I bought it about 2 weeks ago, as I am a pretty much lifelong fan.


I've also been playing this quite a bit since I bought it for my ps3 last week for 2 (about $3.43). I've not played GTA V yet, however


This I've had for a while, but I've just started it today. Brilliant series, in my opinion. And I can't wait for the 2.5 remix.

Finally finished Assassin's Creed II. Yeah, I've never actually gotten around playing the sequels.
Much better than the first one though, still the controls are somewhat wonky.

Love Assassin's Creed 2. Took me forever to finish that shit. I hated doing decoding those glyphs.

Attempting to play Dragon Age: Awakening and Dragon Age II simultaneously. I never did understand all the hatred for DA2. The one knock against it is the lack of diverse locales. But I thought the story was solid and had a good cast of characters.

I agree. Personally, I absolutely loved the story and the characters (Anders being a personal favourite of mine. He is awesome). Yes, the lack of diverse locales wasn't the greatest thing ever, but I didn't mind it.

YGOPRO for Android. The download takes a while, but the payoff is great. It has all the current cards (even cards that haven't been released yet) and all the correct rulings. I stopped playing Candy Crush Saga to a degree because of this game.
