Good. I get disinterested very quickly when things get difficult.

This is pretty much why I stopped playing computer games, when I finally accepted that I never play past 40% of most of them.

Black is fucking solid. I struggled incredibly badly with that game. The only level I really enjoyed was the sniper one where you can hide in the long grass.

Which brings me onto the next question: What are everybody's favourite games of all time?

When I was 12 I found ICO in Game for £3.99 or something, having heard all about it, got bored when I played it and sold it for something measly. Worst mistake I ever made, I've wanted to revisit it ever since and everywhere I look it's crazy expensive.


Indeed. ICO goes for a few pennies now. Incredible game.

What about Chrono Cross or Breath of Fire 4?

Chrono Cross was okay, but not as great as Chrono Trigger, same with BOF4.

And what about Final Fantasy VII, which is probably the best game ever made.

It was my first RPG but I don't think it's as great as everyone heralds it as. Mostly nostalgia goggles I think. It's not bad, and it's not mediocre either. But compared to the storytelling and general gameplay of the others I mentioned it's just not as good.

Plus Sephiroth is nothing compared to Kefka, who actually succeeded in destroying the world and building a crazy mad wizards tower to rule over it.

I'm sorry, did you say something has a better story line than FF7 Tom? You are clearly mad.

Yes. 4, 6 (7 is basically a recycled 6 anyway, even the gameplay), 8 and 9 all have better storylines. Plus Cloud is a horrible unlikeable protagonist, Barrett is a stereotypical black guy and Vincent is a gothfag.

The entire cast of 6 is better, It has a feral wolf boy, a noble samurai, a rogue ninja, a king who has a chainsaw, a goddamn yeti, Locke and loads more.

No. I've played a lot of games, I devoted my childhood and most of my teenage life to them. 7 is good, but it's just not as good as the rest of the series.

8 & 9 are good but 7 is better, it has better side quests/games. I don't care about storylines and either skip through the story or go and make coffee to miss it.

I really really dislike underhanded tactics and skullduggery entering into the world of games development (One of the reasons I stopped my degree short because of this)

Read if you care about Activision Blizzard (Owners of World of Warcraft, Call of Duty, Guitar Hero, Tony Hawk's and a host of other big brand names) and their CEO Bobby Kotick's plans that have gone ahead and how they treat their employees.

Beat RDR last night. The ending and the events leading up to it are brutal.

The best game ever is Deus Ex.

The perfect game would have the depth of Deus Ex and the breadth Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
