Question Of The Week: If A Game Could Save Your Life, Which Game Would Be The Hero?
Okay, that’s not really the Question — but it is very similar. The above was used for title purposes only.
The Question: If you found out that you could artificially keep yourself alive by inserting your brain into one of your favourite games — what game would it be and what character would you be?
It’s a bit of a tough question, but it’s an interesting concept.
Your answer should be honest. For example, you’d want to be able to make sure that you stay true to yourself, because we know that most of you aren’t Kratos from God of War.
Last week we asked you: The Most Overrated Game Is?
There were loads of interesting and good comments. A lot of us had feelings similar to those in the comments, but we felt the best and most truthful answer was from Strawb3rry.
The number one most overrated game (series) of recent history is no doubt “Mass Effect”. I’ve never been able to play that game for more a three or four hours. I mean come on, I’m a huge fan of sci-fi. I’ve watched every episode of Star Trek The Next Generation THREE TIMES! I’ve played every Star Wars game (on PC). Played Star Craft every year since its release up till this year.
Maybe I only like sci-fi with the word ‘Star’ in its title. But like many trekkies, I’m also an avid role-player. I know the rules to AD&D, spent 67 hours in Dragon Age: Origins, I’ve played Diablo 2 for an ungodly amount of time (with Pwn-Movie for that matter). I’ve finished Neverwinter Nights one and its expansions, Neverwinter Nights 2 and its expansions TWICE. I’m unashamedly a tremendous nerd. I can unequivocally say that Mass Effect is NOT an RPG.
Sure, you play a role in a balanced combat squad, and you play the role of the squads leader, but you don’t get to make the character what you want in as precise a way, with as much divergent character options as do any of the afore mentioned games that have drained so many hours from my life.
In short Mass Effect sucks big hairy donkey balls dipped in sour cream.
The most original, and best motivated answer will win a R200 eDreams voucher. Remember, you don’t need to be the hero to get the
Thanks to Hannes Toerien for the question. Even though we altered it a bit, deep down inside we know that it was your idea..
