FEAR1 might not seem so good now...the game's pretty old.

The expansion packs..well..they sucked. I mean, they helped pass the time, I suppose, but nowhere near the same sort of quality title that FEAR was when it came out.

If you liked Max Payne2(2003), then you'll like FEAR(2005).

In 03 I was living on a resort in Mexico with no access to PC gaming

But I've heard that FEAR is a cool game, despite its age.

Anyway, I guess I'll check it out for myself and see.

I suggest playing on the hardest difficulty. The AI was fairly decent for the time(which means replays were not always the same experience)..the baddies still pop out the same places, but they'll move around and such...FEAR was one of teh first titles that had decent interactive AI...

i dont see what everyones problem is with far cry2 lol, i found it to be one of the best games ive played in a long time, for 2008 that and fallout 3 tied for game of the year imo. Ill likely pick up fear 2 next month or something, hopefully its good.

Agreed I loved FarCry 2. Spent like 40 hrs on it.

Farcry 2 was TERRIBLE, it looks fantastic but the gameplay was completely retarded. Don't even get me started on the storyline. Plus the whole "Choose a faction and fight for them" was bullocks! You run out of quests with one faction and voila! You can just go do quests for the other.... Plus every damn quest was identical, and you also no matter what you did everything on the map would attack you always, even if you had done quests for them. It was an disgusting terrible game.. Fallout 3 was amazing, esp if you were a big fallout fan from back in the day and knew better than to follow the storyline right from the start. I played that game about 10 different ways and had a totally different experience each time. Which is NOT something Farcry 2 could ever offer, and no, it will NOT even come close to being one of the best games of 2008. In fact it has continually made the top 3 list of worst games of 2008 in most magazines and online.

In that case I change my mind, FarCry 2 sucked!

I'm still going to give FC2 a runthrough, if only for the visuals and well, because I have it! (it was free with my GTX 260 Core 216)

Everyone raves about Fallout 3. I've never played any of the Fallout series. Is that a good one to jump on?

Ubi soft is making some very high concept games, great technical achievements, but they keep forgetting to put engaging gameplay into them. Assasins creed and FC2 for example.
