Call of Juarez: Gunslinger - This is a linear western shooter with simplistic gameplay and a neat narrative gimmick that alters the story mid-mission based on people calling foul on the narrator's embellishments or piping up with a different version. The combat is about as straightforward and shallow as you can get: follow the path, choose a weapon, and shoot enemies in the face. It is a hell of a lot of fun. Plus, it only cost me a dollar.
Dark Souls - I've decided that I am too impatient for this sort of game. It wants you to pay attentions, learn, and react... and I want to rush forward and have fun. Unfortunately for me, dying over and over again is not fun. There is a sense of accomplishment when you do manage to beat a boss or get past a certain area that has been troubling you, but that is just not enough for me.
Far Cry 3 - The game looks great and is even fun after a while, but I had to first get around the awful story and the unnecessary crafting system that has been jammed in there for some reason. Whether that reason is to make it feel more like an RPG--if so, perhaps they should have linked skills with levels instead of missions completed--or to pad out the game's length, I don't know. Apparently, you can do some pretty crazy moves after a while, but I wouldn't know. I bought an assault rifle, upgraded it with a short scope and suppressor, and have been traveling the island ghosting outposts ever since.
Fallout 4 - I played a big chunk of this on PS4 and I was excited to get back into it on PC. Thing is, I've already played a big chunk of this and don't care to relive all the nitty gritty details a second time. I've found that the command console makes the game a much more enjoyable experience. Finally, I can feel free to wander around or get things done without weighing myself down every piece of trash that crosses my path. The downside to playing on PC is that it is a bit buggier than the console version, but who cares about little things like the game finally assigning an NPC duties hours after I placed the actual command and gave up?
