Video: 20 Games That Defined the [Original] XBOX

25 09 2012

So I have stumbled upon a whole bunch of “20 Video Games That Define” type videos all applemctom’s Youtube page and will be posting them. Sure, this type of list is always an opinion piece, and we know opinions vary but these are good list and good video footage of the games.

This one is the 20 defining games for the original XBOX. I know that the original XBOX didn’t get a lot of love when it was current, other than Halo… but I liked this system,. In fact, until the advent of the XBOX 360, it was my favourite system – playing it far more than any other system (and I always have the current run of consoles). I almost never turned my PS3 or my Gamecube on when these were the three current systems – Pretty much stuck to my XBOX. Some of these games are part of the reason!

Gears of War 2 – Finished!!!

23 12 2008

Holy Crap Holy Crap Holy Crap Holy Crap Holy Crap Holy Crap Holy Crap Holy Crap Holy Crap!!!

I can’t believe it but I did it…

Well, it’s only been twenty or so years but I have finally finished a game.

Wow, what a game it is, too.

I freakin’ loved this game. Every single bit of blood, debris, dust and gore… I Loved this game.  When I was at work, I wanted to get back to it. gears_of_war_2When I needed to get back to sleep, I played “just a little more.”  This game rocked.

Gears of War 2 (GoW2) was a great romp filled with plenty of blood and destruction. There’s even a story there that has made me want to put in Gears of War (the first one) and get the background. Heck, I have already restarted GoW2 in order to find all the collectibles that I missed. For me this is nuts: I’m Mr. Attention Deficit Disorder Gamer. I want more of this game. I am also going to try it on all the harder levels. This game pretty much had it all for me. This was waaaaay more fun than a good movie. The ending  was a little underwhelming – not bad, mind you, just not “OH MY GO…”x360-gears-of-war-2-500

This week plus period of gaming has been a real rush, and now that I have completed GoW2, I itching to complete some more games. Something tells me the next game ending will be coming much sooner than the last!

Now the big decision is just what game it will be. The Halo Trilogy? Grand Theft Auto 4? Who knows?
