    IV is a classic, though I've only played it once.

    After having a look through the VI leaks:
    I'm disappointed by how derivative it looks. It looks like an upgraded Vice City, like how V was an upgraded San Andreas, which is cool as I liked Vice City, but the franchise could use a big shakeup. I'd love for them to make a GTA game in Peaky Blinders era London... cool cars, Thompsons, bank robberies, bare knuckle boxing... seems like fertile ground for a GTA game that could shake things up.

    With GTA VI I would be hoping for a game changer something to push the envelope a bit.

    GTA IV is probably the game I played the most out of the series I remember on release it was really next level stuff.

    Ended up buying Tomb Raider Underworld on STEAM despite already having it on Xbox. 76p is ridiculously cheap so may as well have it on both formats.

    I have Emperer's Tomb for the X Box, and though it's a little rough around the edges now, the game play is still very fun to play.

    Same here and I agree. I consider it canon with the movies.

    Looks like fun though going to have to remap my controller for the game, certain buttons have multiple functions currently lol

    Playing Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary such a classic game one of the best ever made IMO.

    I have played the first Portal game on and of for years though this is the first time I have played the sequel, very impressed this game is amazing.

    The sequel was even better than the first, I felt, especially the levels involving J.K. Simmons' character.

    The story, humor and voice acting is great. I really enjoyed the first game no idea why I waited so long to play the sequel.

    I'm in that camp; I've played Portal but never jumped into the sequel.

    It;s currently £0.85 on STEAM, though I bought it in a bundle.

    Anyone who has yet to experience the sequel should do so ASAP. You won't be disappointed. I don't know if the servers are still active either but that online co-op mode was a real blast as well, such a great extension of the base game and its storyline.

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
    I have started putting this up on my channel, and had forgotten how politically and socially near the knuckle this game is/was. Now I remember the Aug Lives Matter controversy. Even though they took out the slogan, the sentiment is still running though the game. Following the Aug incident in the last game, Augs (people with Augmentations) are treated with suspicion and contempt, seen as less than 2nd class citizens. They are frequently referred to as 'clanks'.

    I hope that the developers of the next Deus Ex, won't be put off by the reaction to Mankind Divided. This is the right way to weave politics into a work of fiction.

    Wish the old God of War games were on steam, rather than just IV.

    Everyone on YouTube appears to be playing Ragnarok, it made me curious about the earlier games as I have not played any of the series.

    I have watched a ton of videos on Ragnarok, which you'd think would ruin it, but I'm more interested in the story really than the gameplay. I would still like to play it but I've never played any other GoW games. I know GOWIV is on Steam but I'm not really sure I have a computer that could run it. The Norse storyline is pretty intriguing, and it's funny how all the Norse gods in the games are all basically just chill dudes.

    Both Portal games are crazy fun! I stand by @Creasy47's opinion that the second game is even better than the first. I use the games in physics class, actually.

    Just reached the J.K. Simmons section in Portal 2 wow this game is incredibly atmospheric with impressive scope, love the music and sound design. The second game really does take the world to another level.

    Totally understandable I completed the first game again this afternoon before resuming the second game to remind myself of the narrative and how the game works. There are some great puzzles one of my favorite aspects of the game is using gravity to create propulsion.

    Sniper Elite 5
    Season one comes to an end with the 'Conqueror Mission, Weapon And Skin Pack'. So I jumped on and tried the new single player mission: Falaise. With victory within reach for the Allied forces, the Nazi forces retreat to make one last desperate stand at Falaise Castle. So it's up to our boi Karl, to move in a mop up the stragglers.
    For the most part, I found this Season pass underwhelming, but this mission closes out the pass on a High. It's a really cool map.

    If there is a season 2, it's unlikely I will buy the pass, but I will likely cherry pick if anything takes my fancy. *cough*Mosin Nagant*cough*

    Quantum of Solace (Nintendo DS)

    Lol. But it is actually pretty innovative and cool. The way you hold the DS sideways and a combination of button and stylus makes the combat pretty fun, even if the aiming is tough while shooting.

    I love the playing card mechanic, where you collect playing cards that each give you an ability, and if you can assemble a poker hand, you get additional bonuses increasing as the value of the hand increases. Brilliant, and I will probably steal this for my own Bond game.

    Playing Portal Reloaded a community made modification for Portal 2. The game also has time portals. It's literally added another dimension to the game play adding cause and effect to the puzzle solving.

    My mind is broken thinking about that.

    My mind was broken trying to solve the puzzles they took me a bit longer that the 3 dimensional ones lol

    If a block exists in a fixed position in the past when you travel to the future the block will be in the same place. The block in the future you can take back to the past, the future block can move freely as long as the block in the past does not move. If the block in the past moves the future block then seizes to exist and that the easy part :))

    Those Portal games require too much thinking to be a fun and relaxing pc game for me..... :))
