neat game but I have no patience for it

i really enjoyed the difficulty, at least there are different approaches you can take whereas with something like super meat boy you're just spending twenty minutes in a row trying to get your muscle memory perfect

Ever go back into a game like Metroid Prime or Zelda a year or two later and forget what the hell you were doing,what the controls were,etc.? I'm trying to beat metroid prime 3 and i'm so confused.

this is a really vague question but i think you guys might kind of be on the same wavelength as me
any recommendations for a solid fantasy-RPG from like 1990-2005 that i can easily pirate that i can throw myself into for dozens and dozens of hours to avoid depression

thank you all

no that's not vague at all
i don't actually have anything of value to add but sometimes i get fucked up and just trawl through the wiki lists until i have like 10 games

I haven't played any of the earlier COJ games, but Call of Juarez:Gunslinger is really fun and full of wit. The guns handle nice too. Graphics are vaguely like Borderlands in the old west. It's a straight forward enough linear shooter but the unreliable narrator and satisfying POW POW POW more than make up for its scope with entertainment value.

i bought theta the ios version of phoenix wright as a present and it was a lot of fun to compare the differences between the english and french translations. i forgot how bomb the soundtracks to those games could be. i'm totally going to play #3 alongside her when she gets to that point

i dont know why i posted this but holy shit that song is making me happy right now.

Suikoden 3 is also really great. Graphics are goofy but you grow to love them.

Civ V is on sale on steam, is it worth it? I played the shit out of IV but I heard this one wasn't as good.
