@ralphdibny I actually decided to start up FC3 today and it's basically what I expected. This game makes FC2 look like a tech demo, lol. The story and characters are more compelling, the open world actually feels like an open world (in FC2 it was open world but you could only drive along set paths and not across terrains), and there's plenty to do in the game. Crafting, upgrading skills, looting, gathering plants and skinning animals for crafting, there are more side stuff to do like racing and hunting as well as actual side quests where you help out characters in the game. Not to mention improvements such as better fast travel (in FC2 you had to drive to certain places on the map in order to fast travel, in FC3 you can just press on any unlocked point and get there instantly), the enemies don't feel like bullet sponges, the stealth is better and so on.

In other words, FC3 feels like an actual game, lol. I definitely can understand why people say it's the best in the series after having played FC2. The difference is night and day.

@LtSarge nice one, glad you are enjoying it! I was definitely tempted to get them when they had that big sale on a while back. I think 5 looks quite interesting too. I don't think I'll have the time for all of them these days though so I'm glad I didn't go down that rabbit hole

I finished The Medium. I enjoyed it, story really hooked me but it is a slow burner. The sound and especially the music are on point, some great tracks towards the end of the game. Had a few graphical glitches but nothing game breaking. Got 920/1000 gamerscore without a guide so decent for you achievement hunters out there.

Overall good, I enjoyed it.

Just finished Far Cry 3 on 360. Bloody brilliant game! This is one of the best open world games I've ever played. The story was amazing, the tropical setting was really nice, the characters were likeable and memorable, the villains were great and most importantly memorable, the story missions were all varied and really fun, the open world had lots of different side activities to do, the progression system was great, the gunplay felt smoother and better than FC2 (and enemies were not bullet sponges like in FC2 either), the crafting system was a neat idea, everything was just absolutely splendid. After having played it for about 20 hours or so, I have very few complaints about this game. People say that this is the best entry in the series and I 100% agree. If there's one open world game that I would recommend to anyone, it's Far Cry 3. Don't miss out on this game!

On a side note, I did most of the things in the game and managed to get 800 G, which is very good considering it's an open world game where achievements could be tied to lots of different tasks. It's a really good achievement list in other words!

I finished Maneater, and also got 100% of the achievements. Pretty fun and unique open world game where you play as a shark. There are some light RPG mechanics too, with leveling up your shark and it’s different body parts.

@LtSarge I love the Far Cry series! Have you played Far Cry 4 and 5? I think both 4 and 5 are much better than 3, with Far Cry 5 being my absolute favourite in the series and one of my favourite games from last generation

@JoakimZ No, not yet. I'm actually going through the Far Cry series in order since I tend to appreciate the later games more that way. I mean, I freaking loved Far Cry 3 because of how much better it is compared to the previous games. But yeah, I'm absolutely planning on continuing this series since I already own 4, Primal, 5 and New Dawn on PS4 so I'm all set to play through those! Although I think I'll be taking a break from this series for now just to avoid fatigue since I've played through three Far Cry games in a row now .

I've heard though that Far Cry 4 is better in some regards compared to Far Cry 3, although 3 seems to have the better story and characters. Contrary to popular opinion, I did like the protagonist's friends in FC3. I just wish you could've spent more time getting to know them since they were rather interesting. I'm definitely looking forward to playing Far Cry 4 in the future and also its DLC packs since I apparently bought them years ago but I never played through the base game first, lol.

@LtSarge I love the gameplay of Far Cry 3, but I hate pretty much every single character in the game, both friends and foes. I especially dislike Vaas, as I just find everything about him incredibly annoying.
It’s like they tried so hard to make him crazy and deep at the same time, but he just became irritating instead.

”Have I told you the definition of insanity?”

Well yes, Vaas, you’ve told me every time I’ve met you. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

But yeah, annoying characters aside, it’s still a wonderful game that still holds up very well today. Though I think every game in the series released since, except Primal, is better than FC3.

I think I would rank the series like this:

1. Far Cry 5
2. Far Cry 4
3. Far Cry: Blood Dragon
4. Far Cry: New Dawn
5. Far Cry 3
6. Far Cry: Primal
7. Far Cry 2

I haven’t played any version of Far Cry 1 yet, so I don’t know where I would rank that. I have the Xbox 360 version of Far Cry Classic, so maybe I’ll play that before Far Cry 6.

@JoakimZ Ah I see. Yeah, Far Cry 1 is a decent game from what I could remember, although avoid Far Cry Instincts Predator at all cost! They were basically remakes/reimaginings of FC1 but they are absolutely terrible games. They were the reason why it took me this long to get to FC2 and FC3, lol. I just couldn't get through them without taking long breaks in between sessions.

Just finished Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on 360. I really enjoyed the campaign in this game! I've been playing the MW games on Veteran and while the first and second games were less enjoyable due to how difficult they were on Veteran, MW3 felt much more forgiving and therefore more enjoyable. Although the first two games' stories were definitely more memorable than MW3's. All in all I really liked playing through three classic CoD games. Before going through this trilogy, I hadn't played much of this series. So it feels great to have finally experienced some of the games. I also have Black Ops 1 and 2 on 360 so I'm definitely going to play those in the future as well.

Going through backlog on 360. Nearly got all cheevos for Batman: Arkham City. So much content.

I'm thinking...

Just finished the campaign on Halo Reach on normal. Was a neat story but nothing super special. Off to Combat Evolved next in my attempt to play all of the MCC before Infinit launches. I'd give it a go again in co-op.

@Krzzystuff I'd be up for a bit of Halo. I need to pre arrange the game though as TV time is in short supply in my house and I also don't have a mic so can't talk.
