Fallout 3 – Game of the Year Edition
There are some great single player role playing games on the PC that take influences from other genres, such as Fallout which has a mix of first person shooting and RPG elements. The game draws you in with its vast, open world and unique characters. It can be somewhat daunting at times when you are faced with a large group of bandits who want nothing more than to see you dead! But to overcome that challenge and search their corpses for that precious loot feels like you have accomplished something and makes you want to keep playing.
Because there is so much to do in this game you will sink countless hours into it, like we did! i found myself restarting the game several times just to see what would happen if i did quests in a different order or chose a different response when asked a question by an NPC. Some of the changes were minor but some affected the story in different ways, which you wouldnt have known if you skipped it.
Although the game does contain some glitches it is presented so well that we have ignored them. It doesn’t detract from the experience that is Fallout 3. This is one of the best Single Player RPG games for pc for a reason and we highly recommend taking a look.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Another Bethesda Role-Playing game, honestly these guys make some Awesome RPGs. This is the latest instalment in the Elder Scrolls Series. Skyrim brings to life this fantastic, fantasy epic. The game has a beautiful world to explore filled with real, interesting characters. You will be able to design your own unique character, which is fully customizable. You can choose from various different races and presets before you get started on your adventure. The world of Skyrim is massive, its filled with dangerous mountains, busy cities, vibrant fields and unsettling ruins for you to explore. Just like Fallout 3 the games story will adapt to the actions you take, it leaves you with that feeling of wanting to find out what would happen if you did things differently.
This isnt a game you want to miss out on, Harness your power as the Dragonborn and over power your perusers!
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
This is a Single-Player Action-RPG that takes place in a massive fantasy world named the Continent, It is home to the Northern Kingdoms and the Nilfgaardian Empire.

Combat is simple and engaging, you will learn new abilities as you progress which keeps things interesting and exciting. Depending on the type of enemy you face some attacks might not work but you have various other attacks to play around and experiment with.
Its a deep, enriching experience and its no question why this sold over 6 million copies in the first 6 weeks of its release.
Dark Souls 2
Although this is an online game we thought we would include it as you can play it completely offline, This game brings back everything that we loved in the previous Souls games and expands on it. More action, more exploration and a just the right amount of difficulty makes it a great addition to this list. You are always on guard, you are always creeping round corners as you never know whats there. This game has an excellent atmosphere as you always feel like you’re on your toes.
The combat system has been refined to near perfection, your character responds fluently to button commands and interacts with the environment really well. The visuals of this game are outstanding, the colors chosen fit the world perfectly. Now this game is not for everyone but with enough patience you can master this title, the difficulty curve is steep and not much is explained to you at first. But as you work your way through the maze like areas and obtain new equipment you will start to gain confidence and want to uncover even more of the world.

Final Fantasy XV
One of the biggest game franchises is bringing its next hit to the PS4.. Final Fantasy XV
Square have announced that the latest instalment of the Final Fantasy Series will be released sometime in 2016. We have been burrowing through every piece of information we can find regarding this and condensed it down in one handy place.
The world is looking even more rich than we initially expected, with all sorts of side quests and mini games from Chocobo Riding to Fishing which has recently been announced, as well as massive – open world areas for us to explore.
The story is about a young King who is sworn to protect the last crystal in the world from the hectic order. Its a brutal fight between a mix of modern and ancient technology. This is struggle of one brave kind to protect the old ways and his kingdom.
The publisher of Final Fantasy has posted a poll on Twitter asking fans for their opinions. One thing that was heavily requested was for the inclusion of the Moogles, 88% of users voted that these cute little creatures should be included in the PS4 game but this is still uncertain.
Some more facts that were released are the inclusion of new summons. One named Leviathan. This Mythical creature was from previous Final Fantasy games too, This Leviathan is a female serpent who lives in the deep waters surrounding the city of this ps4 game Altissia. She has vast intelligence and can disguise herself and move around as a liquid, she was one of the first designs for Final Fantasy Versus XIII/XV.
The character that is depicted in the logo for Final Fantasy has been speculated to be Etro – The Goddess of Death but this is false. She is actually the most important Goddess of this games world. The original Sketch done by Yoshitaka Amano, the Goddess of this game was inspired by that illustration.
One of the new features of this game is the Car, it looks cool and not only that but you get to upgrade and customize it too. When the car breaks down you get an option to enter a garage and restore it. If you run out of gas on the road then the boys get out and push!
While on the subject of transportation, you get to use other vehicles and services to get around this massive world. While you don’t get an airship like in some games you can ride on boats to get around, your car will follow you while you take other forms of transportation.
Top 5 PS2 Games – Page 2
Here is page 2 of our Top 5 PS2 Games, this was a hard list for us to come up with but be sure to check back for more in the future!
Grand Theft Auto 3
Firstly the voice acting in this game is amazing, its done by some great actors. You will hear the voices of Frank Vincent, Joe Pantoliano and Michael Rapaport and many others.
The story takes place in a fictional city known as Liberty City. This is a large corrupt environment, which houses gangs and various criminal syndicates through-out the world.
You take the blame for a crime that goes down and manage to escape when a group or armed thugs manage to distract the police that you have been arrested by. Following this you meet up with an explosives expert knows as 8-ball. He takes you to meet a friend and that is when the tutorial starts.
Liberty city is an amazing place to explore, there are a ton of missions and side missions to invest your time in as well as hidden secrets scattered around the world for you to discover.
Really fun 3rd person shooter, the best of its time!
Devil May Cry
One of the COOLEST, Survival Horror games EVER on the PS2. Devil May Cry is a fasted paced, Frantic and over the top action game that needs to be played by anyone who owns a PS2. The story isnt anything special, its pretty easy to guess whats going to happen. The best part of this game is the game-play, you can customize Dante with different primary and secondary weapons. Some you can find scattered around the level and some you get by defeating bosses. Dante is one of the most BAD ASS characters in video gaming.. this is a must own.
The game starts with Dante being attacked by a strange woman known as Trish. He easily evades her attacks and manages to impress her, while he tells her about his mission to hunt the demons who tracked down and murder his mother and twin brother. If that isnt a setup for a blockbuster of a game then i dont know what is!
Best PS3 Games – Vanquish
There is nothing about this game that we don’t like! its a fun, action-packed ride from start to finish. With amazing visuals that will leave you with your mouth open. This came out quite late in the PS3 lifecycle but its still one of the best PS3 games to date.
The Dialogue between the characters is good, however we do prefer the Japanese Voice actors over the English Dub. Sam is a government agent who is decked out in a battle-suit that can rival that of the Master Chief!
In Vanquish you are able to hold 3 primary weapons and 2 different types of grenades that can be swapped out with the tap of a button. You can also upgrade your weapons by finding power-ups scattered through-out the level. This game is constantly overwhelming you with MASSIVE robots and hundreds of bullets flying past you. Whats great about Vanquish is the mechanics of the gameplay, you can power slide from cover to cover or all around the map. When your energy meter depletes you enter a state of slow down where you can aim and take out enemies with precision and accuracy.
The enemies in this game will come from all directions and try to flank you as well as run at you ignoring common-sense which is always fun. They will also drop down from Hover-ships but with the right weapon you can destroy the ship and take out all the enemies on board.
One thing that makes Vanquish so fun is the Boss Battles – these are some of the most over the top, in your face bosses that we have ever come across. Alot of the Bosses have instant kill attacks which can lead to minor frustration however there is a sense of accomplishment once you found a way to take out the boss. During these battles there are some quick time events that usually we disapprove of but in this case it doesn’t disrupt the pacing of the game and doesn’t rely to heavily on them either. That said this is one of the best PS3 games out there and we highly recommend giving this one a shot.
Top 5 PS2 Games
Here are some of the best Unique PS2 Games on the system, these are fun and very story driven games! We hope you enjoy our list!
Shin Megami Tensei – Nocturne
The third game in the Shin Megami Tensei series and what an awesome entry. You are thrown into this world as a young boy, who is off to visit his sick teacher in the hospital when the Conception begins. This is a dark, turn based RPG with a very unique look and feel. The visuals of this game standout with colorful cell shaded graphics, you feel as if you are watching an anime!
The battle system is your average turn based system with an icon for each character in your party BUT works in a way that if you attack an enemy with its weakness you get an extra turn! the more Critical hits you land on your opponents the more free turns you get!
Final Fantasy X
Another fantastic addition to the Final Fantasy series, This is a fantastic and most memorable adventure that falls short in some areas that could have benefited from some extra time being taken on the game specifically the way you move feels sluggish and graphics are’nt the best BUT its still one of the best RPGs on the system.
Zone of the Enders 2
This is a really fun, high speed game that will leave you wanting more! There is nothing else like this on the PS2, it will suck you in with its brilliant visuals and fasted paced action. The story is quite deep but still very enjoyable.
Best XBOX 360 Games
GAME ON Boys and Girls! This is our list of some of the best xbox 360 games we have played. Each of these games are unique in their own right and we are about to give you a brief overview as to why you need to check these games out. The Xbox houses multiple genres of Video Games and we wanted to shed some light on some games that we feel are over looked and we think you should take a look at them.
If we have missed out a game that you enjoy then please let us know in a comment or drop us an email so we can review it next!
SouthPark – The Stick of Truth – This is an excellent role playing game for everyone, it has fun, basic mechanics that anyone can get used too. The flashy vibrant colours really make this game stand out from other RPGs.
Be warned this game IS offensive, rude and goes to the limits of what should be allowed in a video game. Certain parts of the game were censored in other countries as scenes were quite graphic and made some people uncomfortable. Its like watching the TV show but on STEROIDS! If you are open minded and enjoy SouthPark then we highly recommend taking a look at this game.
You take control of “The New Kid”, your fully customizable avatar. You can interact with all the citizens of SouthPark and most of the objects in the world. You and your family have just arrived in a new town looking to start again. At first it is suggested that you are trying to get away from something that may have happened in your previous town, as your parents are quite happy that you dont remember the events that lead up to them leaving their old home.
This game takes the basics from other Role Playing Games like Super Mario RPG – Legend of the Seven Stars and adds its own twist. You get the option to choose your initial class which consists of a Fighter, a Mage, a Thief or a Jew. Additionally you can select the race and gender of your character, depending on your choices Cartman will respond accordingly with some fun dialog.
The battle system is quite straight forward, its turn based so you will need to select your attack and the wait for the enemy to choose their attack. You are given a small window to block and counter enemy attacks. If you time your attacks just right you can attack more than once or if you use the right spell in conjunction with an item then something different will happen.
This is a faithful adaptation to the original TV Show and it sets the bar for how other franchises to learn from. It is one of the best xbox 360 games out there and you will be crazy to miss out on this if you are an RPG fan.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare – Our next game is a CLASSIC and many games have tried to imitate it but none can match up to the greatness that is COD4 This game does everything right, it has an engaging story and excellent gameplay. Although the campaign is short, there is the right amount of varying missions to keep you engaged and wanting more. accompanying this is one of the best online experiences out there, The Multiplayer is endlessly deep and rewarding. There will always be something for you to do or look forward too. Weapon unlocks, attachments for each weapon, Camouflage for each weapon and different types of grenades and equipment. In order to unlock certain things you will need to either rank up for fulfil specific requirements.
If you are seeking an action packed military shooter this is definitely one to pick up, it cant be compared to the later games as its lacking alot of the features that they have but this is where it all started. Highly recommend you taking a look at this Modern Day Marvel and one of the best xbox 360 games on the system.
Grand Theft Auto V – This game will suck you into the world of Los Santos with its Brilliant Characters and its memorable missions. The main cast are Trevor Phillips, Franklin Clinton and Michael De Santa. All these characters are very unique and have had very different experiences in life which makes the interactions between the characters all the more fun and enjoyable.
The Missions are great and diverse, one minute you’re plotting a bank heist the next you’re kidnapping and torturing someone. What makes these missions memorable is again the characters, they all bounce off each other and it really makes for some interesting dialog.
Another thing that makes this game stand out is its presentation, the graphics in the world of Los Santos are breath taking. The way the sun beams in through windows or the way rain falls is always a sight to behold. This game was in development for 5 years and you can see why, Rockstar put some serious effort into this game and we would say its definitely worth a look.
