Dragon’s Dogma is like Skyrim meets Monster Hunter. This game does look Dark Souls, but this game does feel like your in JRPG world. The game is about the character that you have created is trying to fight a dragon, but it didn’t go too well. The dragon saw your character’s bravery and he took his/her heart. You get heart back when you kill the dragon. Your character be come arisen. The arisen are dragon killers. The dragon makes his own killers. That is kind of awkward right there. Why the hell, he want to make his own killers?

You are the successor to your father in a Viking village and you must fix the problems that your father created when he went looking for treasures on the British Isles. Every action that you do and every conversation that you have will determine if you have a successful rule or not. It will also have bearing on how your subjects feel about you and your ability to be able to have others follow you as you try and save your lands from a blood thirsty chieftain who has his sights on your lands.

This is one game that you just might find yourself wondering where the time went. This is not like your usual titles where everything is in 3D but you really wont care as the story draws you in as you are conversing with your subject one moment and then fighting the next in this turned base strategy RPG based on the Vikings and Norse history and mythology.

The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard is worst Elder Scrolls game that I ever played. This is one of their older games. This one is a year later after FF7 came out and FF7 totally blows off this peace of crap. I played this game about 2 hours and I was done. I can’t play it, because it looks really bad. This one is way worse than Saints Row 2 on PC. This game has bad frame rate, terrible gameplay, poorly looking graphics, bad voice actors, and DOS port.

Back in 98, everything went to Windows instead of DOS. I don’t why Bethesda put this on DOS. They should put on Windows because the game will probably run a lot better. The soundtrack is pretty good. It sound like a PSone or N64 game. The story is actually is pretty good. This game set before Oblivion and Skyrim. This game about this Redguard named Cyrus who is looking for his sister. The landscape in this game is Prince of Persia meets Pirates of the Caribbean. The story is pretty good, but this game should need to work on it little bit more.

Shadow of the Colossus is fun game and really hard. This game is one of the best games of 2005 and the best PS2 game of all time. When I was playing this, I had so many problems with the controls, but I got used to it. The controls are more of a pain than in Tomb Raider. I’m talking about the Tomb Raider from 1996, not one came out in 2013.

Shadow of the Colossus is an amazing game. It has good storyline, graphics that you will never think to be seen on the PS2, and really challenging gameplay. This game beats the Legend of Zelda series. The game is about a young man named Wander who wants to bring back his lover back to life. She is in a sleeping curse. So, he must kill these colossi so she can bring back to the land of the living. When I played this game, the story is like Sleeping Beauty meets giant monsters. The graphics looks so damned good!
