    I may have rented a game as bad as ME2...


    Fallout 3.

    Man. How anyone can play these types of games for longer than 20 minutes amazes me. It's just... doing stuff. Not actually playing anything. Just walking around having crappy conversations with robots.

    When you actually do get to 'play' the game... the fighting is embarrassing. So terribly done.

    I liked Fallout 3. I thought figuring it out was pretty fun plus it was well put together IMO. IDK.

    I like fighting though. Be it guns or slamming something with a baton.

    But both these games are really poor in the combat areas. It sucks when hitting someone in the face feels cheesy.

    It's an RPG, the focus is never on the fighting.

    yeah, I've learned that. Going to stay away from RPGs from here on.

    It's like dungeons and dragons for people that like watching TV.

    That's why it is called a Role Playing Game.

    They should just name it 'No Social Life' games.

    That's all I can get out of it.

    Has nothing to do with social life.

    Whoa whoa whoa. I like to think I have a fine social life.

    But I will say for the two weeks I had it I played it a fair bit. Nothing outrageous though. I thought the whole idea of it was good. Really making the game up as you go. IDK. I didn't even think of it as an RPG.

    Really? If you actually read and think about what to say to some game character for longer than 1 minute (total), then you need a friend or 2.
    No one that actually has someone to talk to wants to have conversations with game characters... especially bad acting ones.
