    Since we're here...

    This game is most boring card game ever. You win it by buying useless cards that do nothing when you draw them, and you have to shuffle your freaking deck at least 20 or 30 or even freaking more (or it sure feels like it) times before the game even ends. That's not to even say anything about how long it takes to get it set up. And not only that, it has like, a dozen expansions! And most of them are in these giant, oversized, heavy, boxes! Why? WHY? It's a CARD GAME!

    DC deckbuilding game.

    Also, since nobody got it, my last one was Bulletstorm.

    Finally.. new game.

    A young woman is forced through a harrowing series of near drownings, attacks, injuries and fear for her companions that causes her to snap and just start murdering every person she encounters and assumes (rightly) means her harm, only pausing to loot their corpses for supplies.

    Never got around to finishing that game. I only got like maybe 2 or 3 chapters into it?

    I haven't actually played it, but that sure sounds like it could be the Tomb Raider reboot/origin game from several years ago.

    Correct.

    Also, Tomb Raider is awesome, you should totally play it, the PC and console versions can be had really, really cheap as well.

    Bulletstorm is a game where you won't have a good time until you get over that silly concept of 'conserving your good ammo' and realize that the best path is to use the most absurd overkills you possibly can which showers you in points, which, in turn, gives you more special ammo than you'll ever really need.

    This frigging game is basically taking turns to move your anime character units around a map. But if you move too close to another enemy unit they'll shoot at you. So it's like playing chess but the other guy flicks boogers at you when you move a chess piece. Your fighting in not-Europe during the time of the not-WWII era.

    Valkyria Chronicles I imagine? I have that on both PS3 and PC. Yet another game I never got around to finishing.

    I've played VC1 two times already on PS3. Planning to get the PS4 edition since it's only like AED 100.00 (USD28.00). Also, does it have the demo for Valkyria: Azure Revolution?

    Never played VC 2 even though I had a PSP. VC 3 I think never released outside of Japan.

    The first game I think of is Dominion.

    New game
    This game is about fishing, but you never catch any fish! All you do the whole game is try and guess what the other players are holding in their hands!

    Here's one:
    Blank slate walks around the world solving the lazy people's problems (like cleaning up horse s**t in their barns) to gain eternal paradise, gets nothing of the sort in return. Also, the villain gets off scot-free.

    I felt sorry no one answered this one, Transistor. And shame on you, Bastion was awesome.

    Alright. So, this is a universe where demigods roam the stars. Eight-foot-tall super soldiers with fully automatic rocket-launcher guns that could go one-on-one with a jedi and probably win are typically the poster boy, and rightfully so. But screw that, you get to play a normal human floating on a cathedral ship because you and everyone you know are huge xenophobic, bigoted, religious fanatics. So you and your cult ship, which is made out of super obsolete stuff, fly around, fighting masses of cobbled-together junk (which can and will do better than you), super-advanced aliens (which you won't learn from because you're too jealous of their technology, and too proud to admit it), and the only free-thinkers in the universe that used to be members of your cult until they realized how stupid the whole thing is. And get this, early on in the game, you find out you're being attacked, you warn your boss, and he tortures you for it, even though everyone will admit you saved the day!

    Not a favorite, per say, but fun. Also, cookie to whoever guesses this one correctly!

    This is that WH40k ship game, isn't it? Gothic Armada, if memory serves? I have to say, Bruva, these things that you've been saying, they sound... incredibly HERETIC.

    What? Heresy? Where? In all seriousness though, it's not hard to make the WH40k universe sound bad, they do a pretty good job at it as is.

    And now, before you call the Inquisition down on me, the promised cookie.

    Alright, so the game opens with you riding around in a cart to show you basically nothing around not-Scandinavia, before you wind up in trouble with the law. Luckily, the coolest guy ever shows up and breaks you out. You then spend the rest of the game not playing the game, but stealing stuff, imitating Nathan Drake (Uncharted being an obviously superior game), cooking, and hiring yourself out to cut wood or make dinner knives. The more famous points of the game are, killing people (which you do in the game anyway), becoming a magic ripoff of Indiana Jones, joining a furry club, settling the stupidest fight in history, or stealing crap you don't need because after five hours, you already have tens of thousands of gold pieces. The lore's shot to hell, too. Great one-of-a-kind "artifacts" can be sold for less money than you could buy a house with, and you, yourself, the most important person in history according to some cliche prophecy, is barely treated with respect. The game is so broken that it's generally agreed that the best way to play it is to exploit the darn thing, or mod it to the point where it's a different game entirely. Oh, and here's the real kicker, that cool guy that saved your life at the beginning? The whole point of the game is to hunt him down, and kill him.

    0/10-garbage
    499 hours played.

    I was suspicious when I hit the point about hiring yourself out to cut wood myself. Then I looked back on what was mentioned previous, and thought that yep, it could be applied to Skyrim. What clinched it then was the whole being in trouble with the law and riding around in the cart.

    Both correct! The Uncharted and Indy references both apply to the dungeoneering you do, plus the Mage's guild, where you mess around with the eye of magnus, which should probably belong in a museum.
    Also, Alduin stares as the cool guy, which I mean mostly from a design standpoint.

    I don't know man. I think Nord a pretty cool guy. I mean, he kills Jarls and doesn't afraid of anything.

    This game you play as pirates not in the sea but in the air for some gosh darn reason. The game can't make up it's mind on the technology it's world uses. It's either early 20th century or 16th century but with flying ships for some reason that's not explained. The game can't also make up it's mind if it wants to stick to on the ground battle or ship to ship battle. And this game is pretty notorious for the amount of random battle encounters which is the most frustrating in the water level. But you can predict when the battles come because you can hear the disc drive reading the disc to load the random encounter.

    Skies of Arcadia. And yes, that water level really, really overdoes it.

    A shower curtain designer creates a hellish death maze and eventually leaves it to his wife on the proviso that she be unwillingly transfered into an unfeeling body that doesn't remember who she was. She then tortures her own child as revenge for having killed her.

    The game promises you cake, then it fails to deliver. Then to add insult to injury, it even shows said cake which we don't get at the very end of the game.

    Portal. Too easy.

    An old WW2 game, but no one cares about the story, it's all about the survival mode easter egg turned money-printer.
    Unless you have the PC version, then you get a METRIC TON of maps for free.

    Is Call of Duty: World at War considered old now?

    Portal 2, but some stuff I feel is closer to speculation.

    It came out in 2008, and it looks pretty dated compared to today's games.

    That's true, to be fair. I guess I may just feel a bit in denial about that, but come to think of it, that is bloody old, by now.

    Blue-haired teenager is some kinda' destined hero who can save the world. He also has the ability to turn into a dragon and his travelling company consists of a cute blonde with black feathery wings, a catgirl, and a fat useless dog to name a few.

    Local Roadie dies and goes to Metal Heaven. Ozzy's there. Lemmy's there. And you get to ride around in a sweet car and beat people up with an Axe and use your guitar to BRING DOWN THE THUNDAHHHHHHHHHH

    But then there's this awful baby's first RTS and everything is ruined forever.

    Brutal Legend. Too easy.

    You captain a space ship, although technically your character is ranked at commander, and along with some friends both human and alien try to keep an ancient race of genocidal robotic ships from wiping out all life in the universe. The third game's notorious for having a shit ending because EA sucks.

    Correct Bypen!

    Old ancient Atari 2600 game where you play as a tank trying to shoot other tanks without getting shot yourself. Name implies the tank you play as is a drone. I will be very surprised if someone guesses this one right.

    I admit, I had to use Google, since I remembered playing a similar game in my childhood, but couldn't remember the name. I think yours is something older, though. The game I used to play was called Super Tank, which was for the NES, I do believe.

    Robot Tank? If I got it then I admit that it's not a total guess as I googled 'remote tank game Atari' and got it that way.

    A stick man stands in one spot and strikes violently to the left or right in order to murder enough other stick men to satisfy an arbitrary number.
