OT: Calling Gamers (PS3)

Looking for a new game and having trouble picking one. Got Black Ops 2. Looking for a good sports game or a game that has a solid story that you can't blow through in a few days. Thanks in advance.

COD multiplayer is better. I have played COD for about four years and I really gave BF a shot. I was very open-minded about it and played online for about six months without touching COD. I really don't like the format. I will say this: the graphics for BF blow just about any game away (not just COD, I mean ANY game). That shit looks so real. I played and really like the campaign mode of BF, but I just don't like the multiplayer. After playing both Black Ops games, however, I prefer those over the Modern Warfare games online. It's strange though because I like the Infinity Ward (MW series) campaign modes more than those of Treyarch (BO series), but prefer the multiplayer of Treyarch over Infinity Ward.

Well of course they are short. That is the issue with games where you are given specific missions to complete. War games like COD are not open-world games and you are not given the option to explore, such as in Assassin's Creed. That doesnt take away from the campaign mode though. It's just a different genre compared to open-world games.

Borderlands 2 is amazing. Best combination of FPS and RPG I've ever played. Plus the graphics, engine, weapons, content, the zone music (Caustic Caverns is my fave), co-op play, and Handsome Jack?

People will love the Goliaths. "Time for squishing!"

Is there any reason to play Borderlands before Borderlands 2? Something irks me about starting with a sequel, but if they're totally disconnected from each other story-wise and the second is better across the board then I can probably live with it.

I've never played the first one and I really enjoy the 2nd, I know that some of the quest givers are main characters from the last game but I truly don't know if it's a direct continuation of story if its a totally separate adventure, I'm inclined to assume the latter but I'm not sure. If that's your only hang up from buying it then so be it, but it's pretty awesome.

Aside from the fact that Borderlands is a great game? It's worth playing regardless and can be had for cheap cheap. 

 

 

I have to agree on Black as well. It's by far the best fps game I've ever played. They need to revamp it and re-release it on the PS3.

 

For current games Borderlands 1 or 2 are good although I haven't even gotten 2 yet. No time. Final fantasy 13 games are pretty good but take a while. MGS4 I agree is probably the greatest video game ever made. MGS3 is pretty damn good too and you can get the Metal Gear Solid collection that has it on PS3. So you get 3 games for the price of one! If you like racing Gran Turismo 5 can't be beat. All of the Assassins Creed games are good. I've only managed to play the first two so far but even those are good and can be had for cheap.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted

Need for Speed: The Run

If you're into linebackers jumping 22 feet in the air to intercept your over the middle pass, then you can pick up NCAA 13.

The first NFS game on the 360 is also called Most Wanted and up to the date the new Most Wanted came out, it was still the alpha male of the series. Those games got so bad since. I did, however, download the trial version of the new Most Wanted and was very impressed. It seems EA went back to driving style of the original Most Wanted, which is great because like I said, the original is excellent.

related to gaming:
looking to spend some christmas money on upgrading my laptop for gaming, either graphic card or sound card, or new harddrive. I can run dragon age origins on max graphic settings now. was wondering if this is worth spending money on.

If your graphics card is adequate, a solid-state hard drive is by far the best upgrade you can spend you money on.  It will make everything about your computing experience faster and will be very noticable with day to day use.  Good drives from Crucial, Samsung, and Intel are in the $150-170 range now for a 256GB model.
