The God of War trilogy fits all but the "cheerful" part. If you do want something cheerful, on the other hand...


...that's your answer.

I know you said no RPG's, but I highly recommend Nier (ARPG, so it's basically a hack and slash with exp and levels). Lovely story, great characters, memorable music. Can get it on the cheap for $20. 15hr speed run trophy, but the plat is around 50hrs (if you grind for materials to upgrade all your weapons which is in no way necessary to beat any bosses).

If you want to know if you'd be interested in the story, its set and told on a very small scale, focusing on a father trying to find a cure for his sick daughter. There are global implications for his actions but it stays focused on the main five characters and a handful of NPC's.

I was wondering if anyone can give me an answer to this, preferably someone who has played both of these games. Im in need of a new summer game to invest in, and Ive had my mind set on either F3AR or Shadows of the Damned. I was looking for the game that would give me most out of its retail value, meaning trophy wise and actual content wise.

If anyone can give me an awnser that would be great, I just want to make sure Im making the right choice, and please tell me if neither of them are worth the money, dont want to go throw $70.00 down the drain.

I've looked into both these games and I had a huge paragraph typed out but my comp fucked up so here's the short version.

Shadows of the Damned. Twisted, crazy game. Definitely unique. Next to no replay value after you finish it.

F3AR. Scary, fun. An upgrade from Fear 2 which was also good. Has an online so you could play that when you're done.

Both worth a play but if you're going to buy a game F3AR has the most replay value. I think I'm going to rent Shadows of the Damned myself.

Thanks, I've looked into both aswell and I am kind of leaning towards F3AR. Shadows of the Damned looks good, but theres too many small problems with it that I know will bother me (The way he runs, voice acting and apparently the large ammount of awkward penis jokes) F3AR on the other hand looks alot like the second, although after some reading its said to be worse than the first two. I've also read that the graphics are dated but I didnt see a problem when watching gameplay.

Don't be fooled by its visual likeness to FF12. It's nothing like that. FF12's world exploration and battle mechanics are a gem, this one's - a steaming pile of horse poo.
The problem here is, the comparison to FF XII. Ofcourse, it's not as good as FF XII, but it is definitely a fun RPG. It's got an MMO feel to it's Battle System, that i don't prefer personally, but it's not a bad game, by a long shot. If you don't wanna shell out the $60 right away, just wait until it goes down in price.

Transformers: War for Cybertron! It has a great SP as well as a great MP! On top of that, they are doing a permanent 5 times faster XP boost on Monday.
