[52 Weeks Challenge] Week 13 – Best gameplay

Hello everybody,

Tired of the 30 days game challenge? Enjoy my own personal revisitation of a classic challenge! Instead of 30 daily posts that fill an entire month, this challenge is more diluted in time and it will cover all the year 2018. 52 weeks, 52 questions to understand who’s the person behind this blog. Me!

Week 13 – Best gameplay

It’s hard to judge a game by the gameplay. Even because…what is the definition of gameplay???

There are so many elements that could affect the way a game plays that it’s almost impossible to choose one which is at top level in everything. If it were for me I would say one of the Resident Evil games but I want to keep these games for other categories in the future 🙂

Apart from the RE games one of the games that really got me in the past is Deus Ex. And the reason of my nominees are essentially two: first of all, to be an FPS it’s really well made and in my olympus is neck-a-neck with an all time classic like Half-Life. Second and most important for our porpose it can conjugate the better apsects of the FPS with a bit of RPG. Of course not an RPG like Baldur’s Gate but the fact that you can learn specific abilities and power-up selectively one thing or anbother gives high replayability and make the game more enjoyable rather that the “usual” shoot-walk-open door-shoot.

Plus is one of the first FPSs I’ve ever completed and I remember it fondly because I used to play in “co-op” with my dad that was actually just sat beside me watching me playing and giving some tip whenever I was forgetting what I was doing.

Sooner or later I will come back again on this great game, since I have the PC and the PS2 version so I could even check how it’s the gameplay even on Sony’s console.

And what about you? What’s your favourite game in terms if gameplay?

    I love Hack-n-Slash. Torchlight I & II and Dungeon Siege are gameplay favorites.

      I like hack and slash but unfortunately I’ve played only a few of them and I’ve never tried Torchlight or Dungeon Siege. But I love the Contra seires, even though is a bit banal…

    Snake on the Nokia 3210. Not even joking.

      That was a game! Probably I’m wrong but I’m almost sure nobody has ever written a review about it. When I’ll write it, and surely I’ll do, you’ll be credited as “creator”. I’ve played a lot on the second version of snake, the one with 4-5 different scenarios, one “closed”, one in a shape of a labyrinth, etc…

        Haha, thanks.
        I’m serious when I say that Snake is the perfect game. Also can’t wait to write areview about it.

    Too many variables to pick just one title with good gameplay. A few honorable mentions are: Total War: Warhammer for the RTS category, Zelda: Link to the Past (clean & simple), and one of my favorite game series, Rainbow Six Vegas!

  5. I nominate Donkey Kong: Country Returns on the Wii. I wanted to nominate a game on the Wii because I found the Wii remote innovative and enjoyed the interesting ways it was used to play the games. I chose this particular game because the gameplay incorporated the Wii remote well and because it flowed so well. I can remember playing this game and then suddenly the character would be forced to keep moving and I would have to react to avoid obstacles, until I reached another area where the character would speed up until I had to rely on my reactions to avoid losing lives as the game was travelling too quickly for me to think clearly. I enjoyed the story of you playing Deus Ex with your dad.
    How did the co-operative aspect work on the Deus Ex game?
