961  The Rest / General Discussions / Games With Lots of Exploration.... on: July 02, 2010, 11:06:35 AM
Having been playing through Demon's Souls, I've been reminded how much I love games were you can explore. Not necessarily open-world, but just ones where there's always something new or unexpected to find around the corner.

I'm now hoping that perhaps some of you can recommend me any games that feature great exploring. I won't list all the ones I've played, but a few of my favourite ones that jump to mind would be (in no particular order)...

- Demon's Souls [Lots of items and equipment to find + Interesting and varied locations to run around.]
- The Elder Scrolls Series [Requires no explanation :P]
- Shadow of the Colossus [Although there's not much to find, exploring the world is still fun.]
- The Legend of Zelda series, but specifically Ocarina of Time [The 100 Gold Skulltulas, magic bean spots, hidden locations etc.]
- Little King's Story [Quest-style exploration]
- Banjo Tooie [Damn there was a lot of extra stuff to find and explore in this one.]
- Katamari series [Though, admittedly, this is kind of crazy exploration...]

I'm sure there's more but that's all I can think of right now.

If anyone could recommend me some for PS2, PS3, PSP, DS, PC or Wii, I would be eternally greatful! :D But if any spring to mind that aren't on those platforms, I'd be happy to hear about them too!

My favourites on PS3 (though I'm sure there will be some disagreement) are...

- LittleBigPlanet
- Heavy Rain
- Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope
- Demon's Souls
- Uncharted 1 and/or 2
- Siren Blood Curse (if you like horror)
- Modnation Racers (I've been really enjoying)
- BlazBlue (best fighter on the system)
- Devil May Cry 4
- Katamari Forever (I LOVE this)
- inFamous (is pretty fun)
- Darksiders

That was way more than I was planning to list... :P

My first time with the game was entirely offline, in an empty house at night.

I've been playing online and, honestly, I think the messages and phantoms really take away from the atmosphere of the game. I would prefer to have been feeling like I was all alone--more like a survival game. Mind you, I could always play offline, I suppose. But I'm sure I'd die even more often...

So I've made it to the boss in 1-1 on my third try, fought it and lost. It's supposed to be weak against fire but I used all the bombs before getting there and I'm using a temple knight. Still trying to figure out what I should do about that. 

I'm a Temple Knight too. I had saved up all the firebombs, unaware of the battle, and using all 10 I had made that fight easy.

I'm struggling to get through world 1-2 though. There's a big difficulty jump.

I'm currently working on the review for Trinity Universe.

you're doing that so soon after reviewing tales of symphonia 2?
you must be very very brave

Thank you, I appreciate that! Trinity Universe is better than Symphonia 2, but not by a whole lot...

I'm currently working on the review for Trinity Universe. I haven't played Neir, but I certainly wouldn't advise you to get Trinity Universe unless you're a huge fan of Disgaea, Atelier Iris, and Cross Edge.

I've got it.

I really enjoyed it! A couple of the gameplay mechanics were a little clunk, but it's certainly worth picking up if you can ever find it,

It looks terrific! I never got a chance to play the old Parasite Eve games, unfortunately.

I graduated from a class of 80-85 and 15 or so already have kids. And I graduated high school in 2008.

Same time I graduated. Though I'm pretty sure no one from my school years has kids. A couple are married though.

And Prime Mover, that's some really good advice.

Well, topping this off, my hair is thinning...

Mine is receding and I'm only 19! No family history either, haha.

I can't believe we end up talking about FF even on a Zelda topic!

Wow, that's, um, some commitment he has! That's all I can say that's remotely nice. :P

That sounds stunning. I will definitely keep my eyes on it! Thanks for brining it to my attention!
975  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (3DS) on: June 17, 2010, 01:08:36 AM
Zelda isn't an RPG get this to misc games immediately Eusis!

I agree, but it's been the tradition to throw Zelda topics here so I may as well.

Yeah, I was surprised when you moved it! As I posted it in misc. games initially.
