So I have recently realized I have too many fucking games and have a habit of never finishing any. So I need you dudes to pick my games for me here and there. Some of these I've started, some I have not. I want to play through a lot of my games and it's going to piss me off if I can't get through enough of them.

I also have a stream where sometimes I stream just to give me reason to play through certain games. I am always buying new games and playing them, so don't expect to ever run out of shit. I also watch other things while I'm playing games, so you can definitely be sure I'll have something to say for every time.

Play Revelations because it might motivate me to actually continue playing it.

Bioshock should take less time than the rest, go for that. Personally I'd just write off Asscreed but you might not be as tired of the series as I am.

revelations was the last good creed, also if you're just trying to complete the game & dont give a shit about trophies/ 100% etc then start with that.. ive never played origins before but i heard its very short.. demons souls needs a lot of attention (and probably a spare controller)

anyways revelations is my pick

Disgaea 4 because its a brilliant franchise and you should play it.

Are you going to do a write up and express your thoughts on these games?

Yes.

Also I started playing Revelations and Subject 16, this guy literally just pops out of nowhere as far as I remember. I don't think 16's appearance was ever shown before this game unless I'm forgetting something.

Subject #16 was mentioned in the first game and he was the guy inside the glyph puzzles in AC2. I can't remember what his role was in Brotherhood. But yeah, in Revelations he just pops up and whines the whole time.

No, I know 16's existed and been built up as some dude who's eaten shit, but hell he just pops up at the start of Revelations. No fanfare whatsoever and I'm pretty sure his appearance was never actually shown before this which makes it even more polarizing.

Also, holy shit why does the combat feel so slow?

There's really no reason to use anything other than the Dual Hidden Blades, is there?

What's the last AC game you played? I think the ability to chain instakills was added in Brotherhood so I dunno why Revs. would be slower. Maybe you're just used to games with better combat.

The last one I played was Brotherhood, but admittedly it's been about two years since I've played an AC game and my patience for slow combat has probably lessened since then. Anyways I've been playing more of the game and I really... don't know what's supposed to be happening here. Like, I know Desmond's mind got fucked because of the Apple, but why is he just reliving memories? Is any of this actually important or is this basically a filler game? I also think this is Ezio's most generic story so far because his goal isn't revenge nor is it fighting off a crazy man who wants revenge on him, it's a video game goal, find five keys to unlock the secret tomb.

Hell, I don't even really like the bombs that much, they're enough to cause a bit of chaos, but there's no real reason to use them since nothing really poses a threat and this game has very linear stealth.

I just used the hidden blades and throwing knives for the whole game ignored all the new stuff. Ezio's story actually improves a lot. It's the only game where I liked him.

Yusuf seems like a cool dude so far. I'm not really digging this key collection thing, but now that the game has opened up more I'm enjoying myself a bit. I like these Altair parts quite a bit too, but like it feels they're trying to humanize Altair more than they should be.

I'm in Sequence 7 now and this story still doesn't really seem to have gone much of anywhere. I mean, I liked a few of the story twists like Tarik wasn't actually working with the Templars and Altair losing Maria, but most of this has honestly been pretty middling. Sofia feels like a pretty boring character and I'm sure her and Ezio are going to marry each other so that just makes it even more dull.

Also, why the fuck do tailing missions return? Does anyone like these missions where you have to follow around some schmuck as he's faffing about his daily routine? On the subject of missions, do only the story missions contain actual story content or is there any side stuff I should do after I finish the story?

Finished the story mode, apparently there's extra Desmond stuff. Is any of that necessary or can I just move on to the vote for the next game?

I'll do a write up of my opinion whenever I'm definitely done with this game.

EDIT: Fuck it, I'm gonna say I'm done here. I haven't really cared enough for the game to do extra stuff I'll just read a summary of what this is.

In the DLC, you find out the blonde lady was a triple agent so Desmond killing her at the end of Brotherhood was a good thing.

EDIT: Don't waste your time with 3 until you got excess time its crap. The plot is also dumb and the game is glitchy as fuck.

You should now go play disgaea.

There were movies between the games they may have revealed who those guys were.

That's some really important stuff to be leaving for supplementary material.

Guess I won't be playing revelations any time soon then. Voted for The Wolf Among Us as it seems pretty cool.

Just FYI, I've already started a few of these games and ended up putting them on the backburner for a good year or so. Demon's Souls is one of those games where I've actually made quite a fair bit of progress, but have awful habits of trying to commit to it. I've also started Disgaea 4 but only gotten past the first chapter and SMTIV I'm probably halfway into.

If you feel I shouldn't put games I've started on the list please tell me and I will change it, I'm mostly just putting things I haven't started/finished so I can finally get it over with.
