Finally gave Far Cry 2 a proper chance. Third time lucky!

And boy oh boy is it a beast of a game. Very hard to play...if you're lazy. Always just going to the other part of the map to complete a mission, getting into a thousand skirmishes on the way, forgetting to save it and losing progress when you die... Has its magic but does take a lot of time doing meaningless traveling and fighting. The mechanics are pretty basic too. But it does seem good. Kinda torn on it.

YES OH YES! That game is soooo good! Mind you it is the only game from the franchise i have played so dont mock me :ROFLMAO: but damn its such a great game. So did you help the 'The Jackal' or what? i usually do. cant remember if you survive the blast at the end if you help him or not but he is such a charismatic villain i just have to help him, evil maybe but still :D

I have got through like 20% of the game so far, it takes so long and I've only done a couple of missions!

Farcry 2 was created with a greater emphasis on realism. One of the reasons why you've to navigate the map with your hand. Far Cry 2 and GTA 4 were both released in 2008. Both games placed a greater emphasis on realism. That decision was well received by many gamer, but it was not well received by others. For example, I enjoyed Farcry 2's realism. At the time, it felt like a revolutionary game. Jungle Fever, Fields on Fire, Night & Day Circle, Weapon damage, and so on. There was no such realism in a first-person open world game at the time. On the other hand, I wasn't a big fan of GTA 4. Because I believed that too much realism detracted from the pleasure of the regular GTA series. There were a lot of side mission games that were absent, possibly due to the realism. This is merely my opinion. Others may hold a different viewpoint.

Recently been playing Age of Empires 2: Definitive Addition.

This game was an obsession for me as a kid, 20+ years ago, I have always loved strategy type games and this one might be the best ever made. So good that even 20 years later it still has a huge online community, tournaments, updates etc. The Definitive Addition was last year and gave it new graphics, mods, tweaks etc. Its incredible.

I am training myself on harder AIs to battle some real people online soon, but my god its a hectic game with some much going on. Love it.

Big fan of Dragon Age as well, but mostly Origins, which is one of my fave RPGs of all time.

IMO, DA2 was very weak in comparison and Inquisition was "just" solid. Hopefully with DA4 they manage to nail the vibe of Origins again.

I honestly think AoE2 and Diablo 2 are the two games I've put the most total amount of hours in. My God I love that game and I also play AoE2: DE from time to time. What an amazing game!
