The Witcher was amazing. Probably the most diverse rpg world ive played, aside from the Mass Effect series

I've not played any of these so far but I have Ori and Wolfenstein in my backlog. Looking forward to playing those smile
I like what I like and I don't what I don't.

Nice to see Hand of Fate is the first thing that comes up in the article! Great game although the combat could've been a little deeper. Shame it scared away the plebs by being priced at a whole 16 quid...

Sometimes I rate games and go back to them and I'm like... why the fuck did I rate them so high/low? laughHappens to me too. The reason is that time has the effect of making you forget all the BS you went through, so eventually you can look at the game and remember the good over the bad.

By the way, there's a difference between not agreeing 100% with a review (which happens 99% of the time) and disagreeing with it A LOT. So when TA or another popular site is "too generous" while rating a game, that's the latter.
To do or not to do. THAT is the question.

No idea how it scored that high.
Community vote is at 4.1. Can't be that bad.
It's fun for a few hours until you really get into it. The premise is awesome. I assume that's why.
Err is it opposite's day or something? It's pretty samey until you 'get into it' and unlock better cards/weapons/encounters.

By the time you unlock those you realize how atrocious the combat is. Seriously. AC1 did it better. No frame breaks is idiotic.

Where are the 'Tales from the Borderlands' ? Why is it not present in the poll and instead we have a shitty "Game of Thrones from TTG" ?

And why there is no nomination "Most disappointing game of 2015" or "The worst game of 2015" ?

The combat is the core function of the gameplay. If the gameplay is bad, the game mechanics can't save it.

This is only part one! There'll be plenty more in the part two.

Dwaggienite said:The fact you've not mentioned the amazing storytelling that is Life is Strange in this article is CRIMINAL,

CRIMINAL I tell you!

Also, for sense of beauty and exploration, I highly recommend taking a look at 'Submerged'.

One of the most beautiful games with an atmospheric soundtrack that fits so perfectly.
I am a 19 year old guy who has recently been shipped over to japan (I joined the United States Navy right outta high school). I grew up in a town of about 800, so this change has taken a really big toll on me. I miss home every day. I miss my friends. I miss my family. I played Life is Strange not knowing what it was. This game made me feel like I was back home, it made me really happy. I was and still am very big into photography. (ig: gabelarock) I love just the feel of small town, how everyone you talk to knows about everything at the school (That is a real thing in small towns). This game is one of the best games I have played since Bioshock Infinite (If that is telling you anything). Beautiful game. Amazing story. Magnificent characters you actually care about. 5 out of 5 for sure!

^ I wish we saw more heartfelt stuff like this on TA rather than just the usual point-scoring. ;'(

Not impressed with this list. Not a single one of my top games is on here. My #1 has to be Rare Replay.

No. I'd have preferred it play well. Action combat is fine. The AC counter style is extremely easy, but also fine. This game is bad because dodges don't break the animation of your attack.

The game would be good if they did. Yes, it matters.

No it doesn't matter, the game is fun. Go back to AC1 if you're jone-sing.

NO1KEV said:State of decay?! Really?! I found the game just slow and ponderous to play and you spend more time searching for supplies than fighting zombies! I also found the 2 dlcs to be the most boring, repetitive garbage I've played for a long time. Its also glitchy as hell.I agree. I got bored with it very quickly.
