It's been a while since a played a good action shoot em up game. I need a few suggestions from those who know a few things about it...

I don't want to be scary, creepy etc

please share with me if you have played anything good lately

Thank you smile

Hi Volkana,

While waiting for the darksiders to give you their opinions; check the 2013 Darkside List voted on by the boomers.

Glad to see you back.

The recent FPS I enjoyed the most is Far Cry 3. Check the Metacritic reviews and there is a recent post on the game on this board. Other games I really liked are Mafia 1 & 2. Half-Life 2 is great if you haven't already played it.

Volkana, I don't play shooters, but I know you will get some good suggestions. Good luck.

My favourites are the Tomb Raider games, including the most recent, excellent, reboot of the series. They led me to the Uncharted games (kinda similar to TR, but with a male protagonist). And now my daughter has gotten me hooked on the Assassin's Creed games (currently about 65% of the way through Assassin's Creed II Brotherhood).

I don't play scary or spooky or survivalist horror, I much prefer adventure with a chunk of combat thrown in.

Hope that helps too.

I'm with Gremlin Volkana. My favorite action adventure games are the Tomb Raider series which I'm replaying right now. I finished 1 and 2 and am now immersed in TR3.

I could not recommend Tombraider more.....


I love playing adventure games like Gemini Rue on my ipad mini and Gray Matter on my PC Netbook.
