In terms of best games for last gen consoles a lot of what's already been said, but as much as I love gta v, I love gta 4 so much more (still not a patch on vice city though). Batman arkham asylum/city are also great games who managed to get the combat system right straight away.

I enjoyed both the Batman Arkham games too but got sooooooooo frustrated trying to complete the combat challenges that I threw them away never to be played again! :-D

I also forgot to mention Dragon Age Origins. Another RPG classic from that gen.

Batman games are great but I didn't bother with the collectable stuff. Generally I do, but sitting there with a youtube guide collecting 300 of the sodding things. No thanks.

I think I did the Arkham Asylum ones, the ones in City and Origins I couldn't be arsed with. It says how tedious it is to do them when I've collected everything in Assassins Creed I, II, III and Black Flag. Although I'm still pissed off that I have 100% completion on Black Flag but the bastard achievement won't pop :x

I think im more or less finished with AC3. Didn't like it. Not collecting anything. Tells me alot that I enjoyed the Liberation dlc over all of Connors storyline. Oh and charm school ended up in that dlc in one of the missions. Hate him.

Telltale's Game of Thrones game - I just got one my characters brutally murdered.

I don't know why I'm even surprised...

Indeed I am, though I never play online and rarely get new games. The most recent game I own at the moment is GTA5, and the last "new" game I bought was probably Wolfenstein (though that was traded in after I completed it).

Also I picked up another copy of Skyrim today, though as soon as I loaded it up I slowly realised that I left myself in (another) fucked situation last time and have now started up my third single-player campaign, and I don't know that I can be arsed to be honest, so that may actually go back in the next couple of days.

I plowed something like 200 hours in to my toon, had him kitted out in the full deadric armour, pimped to the max daedric bow and I was one shotting dragons out of the sky master difficulty.

It just got to the point where there was zero challenge and the only fun was discovering new locations and new dungeons. I'd completed every questline there was to do.

I'd stopped playing the game before the DLC was finally released for PS3 and by that point I'd moved on and was playing something else. Dark Souls probably.

I considered playing again from scratch but without the surprise element of stumbling in to the unexpected, I can't be bothered to invest that amount of time again.

I have a character I've done tonnes with but I've made him an utter bastard weasel. If it's not nailed down he'll take it. So to see other sides of things (I'm going to make him a vampire) I decided to load up my 'good' character.

Fuck me I have no idea what I was in the middle of doing but it's a clusterfuck of not knowing what to do now.

I've said it before, but there few things more confusing than loading up an old skyrim save.

Why is Final Fantasy XIV so fucking confusing? I literally haven't got the slightest clue where the conjurers guild is. And the map is ridiculously confusing so it is little help at all. I find myself going round and round in circles around Gridania.

Finally got the last paint colour I needed in GTA online, lime green which is unlocked through stunt jumps. I had been 1 away for a long while now.

I hate the stunt jumps. I actually did them all once for 100%ing GTA4. Never again. Oh and those fucking pigeons. I said id rocket launcher the last one when I found it. 2 YEARS WENT BUY/BY/GOODBYE and I stood true to my word. I actually needed a rocket launcher to get the little shit.

I had to restart Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas when I finally stumbled back onto them. In fact, I just left it 3 months between games on New Vegas but fortunately I wasn't halfway through a mission like usual so I was able to just pick up where I left off relatively easy.
I did just wipe out the population of the NCR Correctional Facility and got a "Mission Failed" message, though. Fuck knows what that was :lol:
