Neither, I don't like Dark Souls.

Dishonoured 2. Just couldn't get on with it. I thought I'd give it a try even after abandoning the first one; misguided I know, but I believed I may enjoy it more as it was actually designed for the current generation. I didn't find the combat fun at all, I appreciate it's meant to be a stealth game, but it's arguable that a first person view isn't suitable for such a game. I think the peripheral site offered by a third person view makes games in the genre far more enjoyable and when it does go wrong taking on multiple enemies is a pain in the arse. I appreciate that I wasn't very good at the game, but it didn't offer me any incentive at all to want to get good. A real shame, as I know it's very well regarded, but it will be getting traded ASAP.

I quite enjoyed Lords of the Fallen, it is most definitely Poundland Dark Souls however.

It's a funny one but actually gets better the further into it you get, it's at it's best when you unlock the better powers. It really does have a great level design with multiple routes and options but even as a big fan of the first game I found this one took longer to get into.

I found the non killing run less fun than the stealth assassin route. Killing undetected is more fun than knocking people out and sneaking around avoiding enemies. Emily's domino power is so much fun and really useful.

Thanks, I suppose I could give it another try, but as I said, I found the combat to clunky and kept getting spotted as I thought I was hidden, bit wasn't, hmm. I've put it on Gumtree, do I take it off......?

Go for it - most people on gumtree are morons, scammers or just can't be arsed so I doubt you'll be putting anyone's back out.

I've actually sold quite a bit on there, but yes, it has its fair share of the above.

D2 is much harsher than the first when it comes to the NPC awareness. I struggled hard with the first few levels. But yeah, once you get to the Jindosh level it really opens up, and is a fantastic game.

Life is Strange, didn't grab me in the first episode at all. Started the second episode but turned it off about 15 minutes in.

I also gave up on Tales from the Borderlands after the first episode - I think I might be done with this genre for a while.

Sniper Elite 4 - A solid game, just one lacking in general variety. (In terms of gameplay and abilities the player can call upon.)

I appreciate your comments, but I have already got rid of it, I now kinda regret it, ah well.... :(

Pro-tip: Just gain some elevation and you'll be fine. It's almost laughable at times - as long as you are just a teeny bit above an enemy in both Dishonored games they will pretty much never see you.

Most recent game I've given up on was Dark Souls 3. I think I'm fairly far into it, and it was enjoyable - but I've just been side tracked by so many other games that I'm not sure I'll ever actually get back to it now.

Suikoden 2. Put 17 hours in, paused, and thought to myself "I'm really not actually enjoying this am I?". Turned it off and have not felt compelled to resume it since. That was a week ago.

Felt like to much equipping and unequipping, and the vast majority of the characters had very little story to them (unsurprising given there is 108 of them).

I'm kinda angry with myself for feeling his way as it's so highly revered, but I think I have put enough time in to know how I feel about the game.

Elite Dangerous. What started as a grand experience soon gave way to a chore. I did re-install the game some time later to see if I could get back into it, but after an hour was bored out of my mind.

Resi 7. Amazing opening, great middle game, rather tedious last what I'm assuming will be third (once you get to the ship). I'll knock it off at some point as the first half made me want that much, but it really should have ended once youleft the house.

The ship section is only about 2 hours long at max

This.

Might be a great simulator. But it feels tedious and cumbersome. Don't think it's a good game.
