i like to buy on impluse. i’ve been from the ‘if it feels good, do it’ school of thinking for most of my life. occasionally, that type of thinking bites me in the ass. i don’t like being bitten in the ass. here’s a list of games you should NOT buy.
– turning point: fall of liberty – this game was utterly misleading. its base premise was what would happen if winston churchill had been hit by a car? he wouldn’t have been around to stop the nazis invading, blah blah blah. what they didn’t tell you was that it was the graphical equivalent of a hangover.
– terminator salvation – AWFUL. captainadventure tried warning me about this shit, and i probably should have listened. it involved robots though, so it was hard to say no. plus it was the terminator! sluggish controls and forcing you to play the game 2 or 3 times to get the platinum trophy? makes you want to stab yourself.
– dead space – i think i am alone on this one, since they’re making a second one. or maybe it’s made already. i don’t care. it’s awful, and an incredible waste of time. mostly, the view is irritating, since if when faced with an alien issue you want to be able to look around you, not over someone’s shoulder.
