Give me any game wich is mainly FUN

joeri123joeri123 KerkskenPosts: 160Member Uncommon

Been trying so many games lately and really nothing can hold my intrest..

Most of the games I try to play are so slow and most of the time just plain boring ZZZzzZZ.. 

Been playing around with TSW and rift as of late.. They do show sparks of potential but I can't get past the fact that over 80% of the time spend is just ZZZzzzzZZZZ.

 

Anything you guys recommend? Any genre (I love a GOOD and INTERESTING story aswel)

Something that is a bit fast, actiony maybe, regular upgrade/reward system etc.

 

EDIT: Most of you seem to recommend mmo's. I think I have to take a break from them though. They are just to slow and suck up to much time to get anywhere or get to the 'fun' stuff.

    I recon you are trying to find an mmo?

     

    Try Realm of The Mad God, it's free and actionpacked!

    Don't look too much at the graphics though :p

    You must have missed the part where he said mainly FUN.

    Or even the part where he asked for FUN.

    Perhaps you could offer us something you have found fun the past.  Doesn't really matter if it was a MMORPG or not but that would at least allow us to gauge the type of game you find enjoyable rather than each person offering only personal opinions that will most likely not match your own.

    For example, I could say that DCUO is a good game for those that like more action based combat with active offensive/defensive skills to include dodging that even includes regular updates (including new skill sets/items) and an LOTS of loot if you are into acquiring new armor/weapons appearances.  With all that said I'm sure there are still plenty of fan of action based combat that didn't find DCUO to their liking for one reason or another (i.e. not a fan of comic book based games, doesn't care for the PvP, hates the controls, etc.).

    It can be an MMO or any other genre. I think I need to take an MMO break though because I feel like I'm wasting so much time when I'm trying to play one.

    To me, at least in terms of MMOs, if a game is too "structured", it becomes boring quickly.  SWTOR is a good example of a linear MMO that didn't make me feel I had the freedom to do much of anything that would be radically different to anyone else's experience.  I play GW2 myself, as I'm not yet bored or jaded by it, and I enjoy being able to go to any zone and do things with friends regardless of our levels.  Other MMO's need to adopt this mechanic IMO.  I hate all that wasted zone space as towns fill up with max levels.

    As for non-MMO's, someone said Minecraft.  Dungeon Defenders on Steam is good too, especially with a friend or two.

    This is my problem. I get burned out being put on a A>B>C path without freedom. 

    OP, I don't know how the population is now but maybe check out Vanguard. Lots to do and see and no real rush to endgame for dungeon grinds.

    Well I'm not really a pvp person. I can get into pvp if its really  well made.

    I used to play WoW for a long time, but I guess that doesn't say much.

    I enjoy games with awsome physics.

    Games that are creative like minecraft. (I have played minecraft way to much so don't recommend it).

    I dunno, I'm open to try new stuff. My favorite genres are fantasy and sci-fi tough.

    Although I hate SWTOR end game, Leveling up is really fun and free now.

     

    Edit: Few others, League of Legends, Skyrim, Planetside 2

    So then I have to ask, have you tried DC Universe Online?  It's not your standard MMORPG but offers great action based combat that allows you interact with your environment buy picking up objects and hurling them at your enemies.  It also allows various modes of combat/travel via flight, superspeed or acrobatics (these can also be used offensively).  And unless you just despise  comic books the story is very much in line with the orignal story for each character (minus your own of couse as it's an original hero/villain).  It's also free to check out.

    Yeah, Vanguard's graphics are not the best in the world, but it does have more of an open ended adventuring system in comparison to some of the newer MMOs.  I might try it again now that I have a new pc.  I wonder if people are still experiencing loads of lag.

    The lag issues are built into the games programming and are still present.  That said the latest news stated the newly devoted staff for Vanguard are trying to target these LONG term issues that have plagued the game since launch as their top priority.  Whether or not SOE feels the same, well we'll just have to wait and see.

    I did try it a long time ago. It didn't really grab me in back then.

    I see a lot of people say this but I think VG actually looks really nice. I've played on and off (normally quit because of low pop) and haven't had too much trouble with lag the last few times I've tried.

    Perhaps something other than WoW or Minecraft then that did pique your interest?  The reason I said besides is because each one of those games are pretty much considered the pinnacle of their respective audiences by most and if they don't offer you enjoyment there is little within the same genre/audience of customers that will.  That is unless you still actually enjoy them but are simply looking for something fresh in which case there are a crapton in the WoW category, not so much in terms of minecraft.

    Yea, I don't hate on WoW, it was a fun time. I just don't play anymore after 7+ years. The dailies grind in MoP is what made me gave up, ZERO fun.

    Trying rift atm its decent, can't make myself play for more than half an hour tough... Maybe I just need another hobby lol..

    I'd suggest taking an MMO break and trying something like Trine 2 or Bastion.

    Aye SWTOR might be fun for a bit. I'm hesitant to jump on a sinking ship tough. Or are people exaggerating?

    I actually finished both of those. Thanks tough :)

    Now that The Secret World has changed it's payment model it might also be worth checking out if you enjoy the horror/thriller style of game such as Resident Evil/Silent Hill.  The story is top notch and while it currently lacks real longevity it's still worth the "full" play through much more than many other games in the genre.  Combat animations aren't the best though and while they do offer various clothing/weapon options I've found that most of the facial models are fairly similar so don't expect to be too unique in that area.

    EDIT: This game does lose a LOT of it's luster though if you decide to "cheat" your way through the various quests that encourage you seek out real world answers to in-game quests".  If you are the type of person who can't resist the urge to look up answers after only spending a few minutes trying to figure something out this game really isn't meant for you.

    EDIT 2: Somehow forget you mentioned trying out TSW.  It does have it's slow moments but anyone who has been looking for a story which really draws one in lately will agree this game delivers, despite it's other shortfalls.  The same can be said for Rift in regards to its latest xpac and how it is easily the best option aside from WoW if you enjoy that genre but are tired of WoW after so many years.

    EDIT 3: Have you tried Skyrim on the PC with it's MANY mods?  If an MMO isn't doing it for you but you are a fan of RPG's it's a damn good game.

    IMO indie games are light-hearted fun more often than games from big, "serious" developers who only make grimdark stuff for "adults". So, maybe Legend of Grimrock? King's Bounty: Crossworlds? Uh, I think I'm running out of ideas. Mirror's Edge is a great game, too.

  • XAPKenXAPKen Northwest, INPosts: 4,912Member Uncommon

    Maybe something like Vindictus would be interesting if gameplay is getting dull.

     

    For storyline, AOC's Tortage comes to mind.

     

    I don't know the SP or multiplayer coop games that well.  Maybe Skyrim or Diablo?

    been playing lots of skyrim and morrowind.

    did both portal games (never had played them) and I loved them.

    Amnesia

    Deus Ex Revolution and X-Com.

     

    note: what you consider fun and what I consider fun may vary.
