I'm in a bit of a rut. I posess all the money to buy every game I ever wanted and all of a sudden no games are fun anymore. Except world of warcraft wich is decent still.
Do you remember what it was like when you bought a new game and started playing it then all of a sudden it was 3 AM at night because you had been so drawn in to the game?
I recently bought age of conan which was crap.
I bought Tabula Rasa which was good at first because the start was singleplayer so when I blew up a spaceship with C4 then proceded to conquer and enemy fortress then it was okay because it was singleplayer and everyone gets to do it and it has no vallue once you get droped in the "real world"
Anyway. So they drop me in the real world. I shot some alien animals. Bludgeon some alien enemies and spend most of my time walking around in forests until I reach some far off settlement. I walk in and buy some ammunition which I realise is surprisingly expensive in this game that it made me thin twice about who deserved to be shot and who I could get away with just pistol whipping to death (all weapons have a mele attack)
(I don't remember what Tabula Rasa calls the game currency so lets just call them Piotes for now)
I also pick up four grenades that where stupid expensive at 75 piotes each while regular bullets where 2 piotes each but I figured I just had to try some grenades.
When i'm about to leave the outpost I spot some red ships coming down from the sky who then proceed to drop off alien enemies that start assaulting the base. I shoot some at them but my level 1 pistol did little to impress the level 14 enemies. I threw one grenade which killed a bunch of them but at 75 piotes each I would be better off just bribing the enemy the 75 piotes just to go away rather than wasting grenades.
So I hide my level 6 self behind some sand bags. Players came out of the outpost and returned fire and the thing turned into a hell of rockets and machinegun fire and bullets and those little shield drone *******s. Anyway I spend a good 10 minutes sitting behind a sandbag sucking my thumb while I slowly develope shellshock as enemies and players die around me. By then the battle is over and I crawl on all four into the safety of the outpost and cry in some NPC's shirt but then the outpost gets attacked *again* by an equal force. having enough of it I jump out the back and run for the hills while promising to tell the rest of humanity about the brave souls that gave their lives at this random outpost in the woods.
By that time I have to admit that the game had become slightly immersive but that soon drained out and I lost interest in the eternal grind.
Are there any good PC games left. Like... universe at war but longer or the C&C series but a new game or mayby... I don't know just some fun game.
