I guess Ill start...

I have played Assasins Creed 4: Black Flag on the WiiU and its fairly good. I have never played this series before so I wouldn't know how to compare it to the old ones but it seems to be a stealth game where you go around and do not have to stealth at all.  I learned that in the first hour of the game and it turned into Fable: Pirates w/Parkour.  I just aggro everything and counter -> 1 shot everything.  Its silly how easy it is to fight for a "stealth" game.  Even MGS:Rising was more stealth in-tune than this but that may be because I played that game on hard and most things just murder your if you don't stealth kill majority of the enemies. 

Of course, the roleplayer in me decided that I should sneak around just because I have a pirate army  and they will handle most things for me.  I just hire a bunch of drunk pirates and let them go wild while occasionally killing enemies as they are distracted very much like a kill stealer in MOBAs who will let you fight till the enemy is 1 shottable then they will use their ult to steal your kill even when you both know for a fact that you could've handled it and they say in a very cocky manner "KILL SECURED BRAH!".  Yes that is how I play Assasin's Creed.  

Shortly after learning that I can send drunkards to their death, I figured out that you can just hire a bunch of hookers escorts and you can walk alongside them and no one will ever suspect that you are tailing them.  It is redonkalous. 

If I were to compare the stealthing around  aspect of this game to something else, I would compare it to playing EVE online and doing level 3 missions in a Dominix with a bunch of T2 Drones.  You can afk and just enjoy the view as your drones murder everything.  

I have been playing it for about 9 hours and I really have not gotten far.  I spend most of my time on my boat, boarding enemy vessels and sending my drunken battle monkeys to their deaths, not hesitating to shot a powder barrel to kill 4 of those monkeys and 1 enemy because why not? I am the pirate king afterall.  

 

Oh and that Kenways Fleet sidegame or w/e sucks. 

 

TLDR: Im really enjoying Black Flag even if its easy mode because its just fun to watch.  And my pirates love me and cheer whenever I get on the wheel to send them to their deaths. However, I may be enjoying it for all the wrong reasons because stealthing around is easier than easy and combat is just easy. 

 

How about you guys? What non-mmo game/s have you played and what did you think about it?

    I'm currently playing Battlefield 4 on PC.

    What I think is that it makes me wish MMO games were so immersive.  Back when I played Star Wars Galaxies, I used to completely disappear into it like I do with BF4, and that was because it was engaging and made me forget about the real world.  Current MMOs do not do this.

    It also goes to show that this "you're just burned out on MMO's" thing is pure crap.  I started off playing shooters online back when Quake 1 released in the 90's.  Before that I was doing Doom deathmatch over a modem.  I went on to play in compitetive clan FPS games for years, including Quake 1, 2, 3, Tribes 1,2, Unreal, Counterstrike, etc.  To this day, I can jump in a shooter game and have a blast, because they engage me.

    That's my issue with current MMOs.  They lack in too many areas to allow my mind to get lost in the game. That's what i want to get back, and I'm hoping some of the new games coming will bring it back to MMOs.

    A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

    People play non-MMO's?  Not quite sure what those are, has been several years since I played one. 

    I think Fallout 3 was my last single player game, and I really enjoyed it.  Or maybe it was Starcraft 2, that one,not so much.  Or was it Skyrim, yeah, I think so, again, not that much. I did however spend over an hour once rolling apples down a steep hillside, as I was fascinated by the physics of them as they bounced down the hill. 

     

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    I played(note the PAST tense) Planetside 2.

    I would not recommend the experience to anyone.

    I just finished Bioshock: Infinite, and I've got to say it deserves all the praise its received. The game looks great, has a good story line and offers a challenge all in one game. It's the first game where I finished the game and then hopped over to the internet to get a better picture of the story.

    I remain optimistic about Contrast. Hopefully the developers will fix the bugs and I'll fork over some money there too. :-)

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    I'm also making my way through Baldur's Gate EE and I love it. It's nice to die in a game again. After I finish it I will then go to BG2.

    Still playing Skyrim and Morrowind, Since those games don't really have "an ending" I move in and out of them. My usual "mo" is to play a game start to finish if it's a new game. If it's somethnig I've played before then I can sort of dip in and out.

    At the moment however, since it's been so long since I played BG, it feels like a "new" game.

    Epic games, I am waiting for them to go on sale (hopefully) at Steam.

    Agree.  Great game.  

     

    Otherwise Skyrim is the only other single player game that keeps me popping back in at the moment.

    Hearthstone and Path of Exile.

     

    Right now I rarely do anything related to MMO's.  I used to check this website several times a day.  Now I am lucky enough to check it twice a week.

     

    Even though I am looking forward to ESO and EQN, there distant release has left me wanting so I had to fill the void with something.  Unfortunately for MMO companies nothing on the market is good enough to keep my attention while both POE and HS have kept me interested for more then a few months.

     

    I may be out growing MMO's, if so that will be sort of a relief.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    Currently playing SSF4: AE.  One of the best games I've played in a while.  Unlike the majority of mmorpg's, it's challenging, it takes a long time to master and has kept me playing past the first month.

    I'm currently playing Beyond 2 Souls on PS3. It's a pretty awesome story driven game. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a single player game.

    Hearthstone - first time playing a CCG.  Kind of fun but seems too luck driven once you know how to play

     

    POE - I've played it before.  The game bores me after a few days.  Worst combat of any modern aRPG.

     

    Marvel Heroes - Fun but shop is too expensive and population is way too low.

  • TheMaahesTheMaahes Marlborough, MAPosts: 185Member

    Been playing catch-up with some SP RPGs and it's been fun: Skyrim, Mass Effect 1 & 2, Mount and Blade: Warband, and Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines.

    Skryrim: For every great thing that happened, another one would come along to discredit it. I don't love it, but I don't hate it.

    Mass Effect: 1 was ok, 2 excels at what it does, but the whole move from RPG to TPS was disappointing. Being a fantasy fan, the story was just ok to me, it was the crew's stories that were more compelling. I will also remember Samara for a long time.

    M&B: Great RPG and I can't wait to see what they do with Bannerlord.

    VtM: Can't get enough of the setting and it both brought back memories of the P&P and longing for the World of Darkness MMO.

    Will be trying King's Bounty, Dragon Age, Gothic, Divinity, and Dark Souls soon.

    X rebirth.... And it makes me want to drive a nail in my eye. I never so regretted spending money on a

    space sim.

    A Wolf Among Us is good too. I finished that before finishing Bioshock:Infinite. They need to hurry up with Season 2 of TWD, and the next episode of Wolf. :-)

    Currently playing Killzone: Shadow Fall on ps4, enjoying it. Assassin's Creed IV is next. 

    Before that played a lot of games such as Bioshock Infinite which I liked and Dishonored (loved that one).   Looking forward to Infamous Second Son and Watchdogs. Playing a lot more on console since I haven't played many MMOs for a while.

    I'm also playing x-rebirth and while I'm not sorry I bought it, I'm a little frustrated with crashes, and in the "campaign" (tutorial) there are a number of bugs. The game looks good, and I can see the potential in later play, but for now it's just another case of "I wish they'd sorted this out before release".

    On another note, the current itineration of Simcity is finally patched to a point I consider it "playable". I still won't buy DLC for it, though. Unless my gf acts interested I won't be spending any more money on the title at all.

    Other than those, I'm a civfanatic, and a close friend recently bought Civ 5, so I play that with him maybe 4-6 hours a week.

    desktop dungeons - simple but fun

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/226620/

     

    http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013/11/08/impressions-desktop-dungeons/

    a game that punishes laziness and recklessness, that will make you suffer for even a single impulsive click, that will make your plan and curse and try, try, try again even after relentless defeats. It’s a brilliant design, the core of Desktop Dungeons, and it has entirely survived its expansion into something bigger.

    Yeah it's on my Steam wishlist waiting for a sale.

    I've been playing payday 2 ( not bad)

    sniper elite Nazi zombie 2 ( meh)

    warframe ( way too many hours into this )

    forced ( not bad )

    I've also been eyeing up battle worlds kronos but not sure I want to play it or not. I'll probably wait till it goes on sale. I tend to get bored of single player games too fast.
