Default Your favourite/most hated games of the past non FRI years

So what are the best games, or perhaps even the worst games that you have played since you were last on FRI?

Go in depth as you want. Hal will probably post some of his reviews cause hell, someone has gotta read em...

Don't need to be massively specific. No-one is going to bite ya head off if it was out when FRI was last used.

The best game I have played is probably Portal 2. I love teh franchise, and it had some great puzzles that stumped you for a small while, and some great new concepts added to the game-play. Plus myself and Hal had fun playing the multi-player.

The worst is probably The Simpsons Tapped Out. Not because its terrible. Its not, its just the fact there is so much in it and it sucks up so much time, and YES I even spent money on it. Thankfully I do not play it any more. I just cannot be bothered, but its more that style of game than that game itself. The nickle and dime "rush this for money" type of game that has pretty much destroyed mobile gaming.

Dragon's Dogma was amazing fun, and the Dark Arisen re-release was pretty ballin'.

Had a friend request on PSN just the other day, someone sent so they could use my pawn more. Even aftyer all this time, Englebert still reppin' hard.

The Last of Us was an experience. enjoyed pretty much every second of that game, and played it multiple times on the trot (increasing difficulty levels) to get the Platinum. Never played the DLC though! I'll get round to that when I pick up the PS4 version.

Candy Crush Saga is the best and worst thing I've ever seen.

The Last of Us was great. Was Mass Effect 2 out before this place went down? Witcher 2 was great as well. Played the Uncharted games for the first time last year, think I completed them all within a month.

While not as good as The Last of Us/Witcher 2 Spec Ops The Line, Binary Domain and Enslaved Odyssey to the West were all surprisingly good.

Forced Unleashed 2 was probably the worst game.

That's a lot of games, so I'll go with the top tier shit; the stuff I've liked the most.
  • Everything Miyazaki has done, so Demon's Souls, Dark Souls and Bloodborne (honourable mention to Dark Souls II)
  • The Last of Us
  • Mass Effect 2
  • Alien: Isolation
  • The Stanley Parable
  • The Walking Dead: Season One
  • Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
  • The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
  • Bayonetta 1 & 2

And special mention to some awesome, surprising games that should have never been as good as they are like Spec Ops: The Line, Binary Domain, Wolfenstein: The New Order, South Park: The Stick of Truth, Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, and probably loads more I can't remember in both categories.

As for worst, Aliens: Colonial Marines is a piece of shit.

Best - In some respects, Destiny. Although looking back it was quite disappointing and not what everyone had hoped for. Despite this it has been the only game on the PS4 that was actually fin to play online, hour on end. And the 'raids' were probably the best things I have ever played on a online console.


Fear had some good shouts for unexpected great titles with Binary Domain, and Spec-Ops. I agree with these, and also would add Alpha Protocol to that list.

Other than that, the actual best games for me would probably be The Last Of Us, and Witcher II.


I can't really think of a poor game, tend to be quite selective when buying games.

EDIT: Infact, the Game Of Thrones game on last generation consoles was fucking terrible, I literally watched a cut scene, moved for 5 seconds and then turned it off. the price of shit.

Crazy that games like LA Noire would have been in this time frame too.

Can add that to my list.
