does borderlands and farcry 2 get better as the game goes becouse i had both of them for pc a while ago and i got bored of them after 10 mins with having to travel long distances with little ammo while needing to kill ALOT of bad guys to get your objectives..farcry is about £4-5 now and borderlands is £11 last i looked

Far cry 2.....awesome....super long....replay value (sandbox FPS...many ways to play)
red faction guerrilla..... very cool, long...replay value (sandbox 3rd person shooter...grand theft auto on mars)
borderlands....very good...long...replay value
LA noire is very good
bad company 2 was good but really short
bioshock is very very good, part 2 is worth playing as well
oblivion was mediocre. it got really high ratings, and is huge and visually stunning, but a bore. i keep going back to play it thinking it will be better, but it never really is.edit on 26-5-2011 by BadBoYeed because: (no reason given)
Well first off the AI is amazing all games should have AI as intelligent as on RAGE ive played ALOT of games but the AI on RAGE is without a doubt the best ive ever known, other than that the game is a little flat...the gameplay and graphics are amazing i cant fault them in any way the game would be absolutely amazing IF they gave it more story. Basicaly they tell you your special and you shoot some guys and it doesnt build up to anything, i was expecting a huge finale or atleast a very long game to play but it took me 7 hours(while messing around) to complete the game. Theres not a huge selection of guns either i think there is around 8 of them but you can add upgrades and diffirent ammo.

What are your thoughts on Rage?
Care to give a little review for someone who is considering it?
100% spot on...and trust me dont try the multiplayer its basicaly 7-8 short storys you play out just 2 players alone and they last about 10mins each its completely pointless

Atmosphere is decent, though somewhat inconsistent and there's always some immersion breaking something that comes along, but overall it's pretty nice.
Guns feel nice, though management of said guns is clearly aimed more at consoles than it is at PC, but OK, it's not too bad. The quick use items however are a pain in the ass. You need to press 2 buttons to actually quick use anything if it aint currently selected, which makes it less than quick use in my book. This is especially annoying when switching between bandages & throwables (wingstick, grenades,...).
The car races are mostly easy and somewhat enjoyable, with the exception of some of the '50 point races' which on some maps just depends on luck. Some times you drive & fight like ass and you still win, other time you rock everyone's socks off and still come in second. Oh well...
Still, overall combat (FPS & car) is pretty decent. It is however horribly unbalanced... You can use the shotgun with pop rockets from begin to end, this includes all giant mutants and bosses. Just craft 100+ of those before each storymode mission and you'll need virtually nothing else. This includes the final levels, which is kinda sad. The BFG is actually quite a bit worse than the pop rockets. Pop pop pop, watchin' those mother#ers drop. The only downside is that you often blow up the corpses if you make direct hits, which means no looting. But you don't need that anyway.
Speaking of the ending, it's a horrible anticlimax. After the special boss fights and somewhat interesting mobs, it's just pretty straight forward. Just wait around a bit and pop the enemies as they come. They say it's not the destination that counts, it's the journey. But this is taking it a bit far.
I enjoyed the game, but yet again, I feel like it could've been so much more. And no, I wasn't expecting this to be an RPG btw, that's not what I mean. I fully realize it's just an FPS with a story, but it still leaves me unfulfilled. Part of it is that it doesn't really make a huge amount of sense at how it ends. At least Hard Reset had a boss ending, Rage doesn't even have that...
Haven't tried multi yet, so can't comment.
I have rage lol, was good game to play but the story sucks bigtime and what is dark souls? ive never heard of it before...yup im waiting for BF3 to come out was just about to pre order but ive orderd batman arkham city instead becouse its out first in 10 days and ill buy BF3 next week when i get paid again cant wait i loved the beta just hope the lag is gone and they give 100% graphics in full game instead of the 10% like the beta

Dude get Rage, or Dark Souls, there both out on the X-Box.
I got them both some days ago though for the PS3, and there both really good games. I tried playing a little of both but it was just to much for me. So I decided to beat Dark Souls first before continuing on with Rage.
If your waiting for MW3 and BF3 to come out. Any one of the two games I mentioned above will more then keep you occupied for a long time to come.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Batman: Arkham City
The first two might push you out of your comfort zone slightly with their more fantastic story elements but these are three example of highly polished gameplay. From your games list, that looks to be your focus rather than story or character dev.
