I second Fallout 3. I have it on PC. I assume the experience isn't significantly different on consoles.

If you like adventure games, then I recommend Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. It's a beautiful mix of adventure, action and platform genres. It has also gunplay, but I can't say it's a shooter. The game has an update patch that includes the Trophies (I don't know if you are a trophie hunter :P)

btw, my PSN ID is SaxenHighwind :) I play MGO a lot

You could try Assassin's Creed, or Star Wars The Force Unleashed.

I've played the PS2 version of SW:TFU, and thought it was pretty average. A lot of gamers I've met actually hate Assassin's Creed.

I can't play online, because I don't have a wireless router. Plus, I don't even like to play online.

Valkyria Chronicles seems to be good, but it does feature shooter elements. Also, there is stuff like Rock Band 2, if you're into that sort of thing (I certainly am) and Tales of Vesperia when it comes out for the PS3. I would recommend BioShock, but even though it's half RPG, it's got quite a bit of shooter in there.

There's no meat to this game.


I just got this game today for my birthday, and I think it's awesome. I chose this over Prototype, because of the Karma system (be good or be evil), and I would MUCH rather be a superhero than a supervillain. Although I haven't played all that much of it yet, I plan on playing it again tonight once I get off of WP.

am not a GTA fan. All of the games in the series have done nothing for me but bore me to tears. The game play is repetitive, the characters aren't interesting, the controls are sloppy, and the story is forgettable. I know my statement is going to piss off a lot of gamers here, but please don't hate on me for not liking GTA.


Well you've just described how I feel about that cheap knock off "Saints Row" I've spoken to dudes at EB and they prefer Saints Row to GTA . 8O

PS as a fan of the series no I don't hate you That's irrational fanboyism! :lol:

it safe to assume that I'm just getting burned out on gaming or have my choices been bad? I want to be a gamer, but I don't know if it's in me to even play anymore...


I feel the same way I felt that way since the Atari 2600 days! next gen consoles are likely to be coming soon so I suspect it may rekindle your love for gaming

I don't mind generic games as long as their done well, do you like Gears of War ?

And yes X box is flooded with these types of games, their target market is the loud ,young and boorish homophobic American gamer type.

With your azumanga avatar I would be inclined to recommend Little Big Planet.
You will miss out on the interactive portion of the game but you will be able to play through the story line and create your own lvls to play yourself.

Don't judge a game til you tried it. I don't like the games you listed. (shooters, sports etc)

I played fallout and assassin's Creed II. Fallout was good and Assassin's Creed II was great.

An internet connection would help to download some games. some of the online games might be your taste.

Oblivion was great.

Also a game called Afrika which is a photo safari game. It may be hard to find. Good Luck.

Assassin's Creed II was great.


Ditto, I have no idea how anyone could "hate" this game, repetitive game play perhaps? Even so I'd say this was a 10/10 game, a great way to end the decade. :)

only problem i'm seeing with assasin's creed II are the trophy glitches. Yes beware!

My husband played through and got EVERYTHING! but is missing a trophy for something he did. so no platinum for him lol.

I have seen some horror stories about it online and ppl had to play through twice to get the trophies completed sometimes.
It's still a great game and the trophy glitches shouldn't keep you from playing it.

Uncharted 2 is also an incredible game for the PS3, as are the Ratchet and Clank series. Haven't picked up Assassin's Creed II, was leery after I played the first one and got bored so quickly. Also, FFXIII is coming out soon! Halleluah!

I guess you could try Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction (sequels: Quest for Booty, A Crack in Time)
Even though it has some guns in it, it;s still a really fun 3d platformer game :D
it has a setting to put it on easy, so you wouldn;t have to struggle trying to getthrough (even though some parts are a little hard ^_^;;, but still, it's a great game nonetheless)
I just hope it fits your criteria :)

I find the Guitar Hero and Rock Band games great. The guitar controller makes it quite expensive compared to most games, but I find it very relaxing. Perhaps it's just the music or perhaps it's that it's highly repetitive when I'm learning a new tune.

I should probably try and play a real guitar instead of playing games about playing guitar, but it's easier to get a tune out of the game.
