Third-person horror games with a good narrative, pacing and atmosphere. The games takes place in the fictional town of Bright Falls where a form of darkness takes over humans, animals and objects. All those taken by the darkness are impervious to attacks until they have been exposed to light that burns the darkness away. So in the game you are safe in the light and besides guns you also arm yourself with flashlights and flare guns.
Second part in the Battlefield series. Modern weapons and vehicles are used in the game so you can now drive around in a M1A2 tank and fly around in a F/A-18 Hornet if you feel like it. There are seven classes in the game: assault, snipers, spec ops, engineers, medics, support and anti-tank and it is possible to form groups with other players so you can work as a team more easily. One player can act as the commander and can order all the groups around on the map and also use commander assets like satellites and artillery to find and destroy the enemy. Extra fun game when you find yourself in a good squad with good teamwork.
In the third Bioshock game we leave the water and travel to the airborne city of Columbia. Nice city, crazy people and weapons everywhere. Gameplay wise i enjoyed the use of the skyrail to travel between the parts of the city. I did not use the vigor powers that much and i missed the ability to carry more then two weapons. The story of the game was fun also. I did notice complains about the violence in reviews before i played the game and a few of them said that it's a disconnect between to story and the gameplay. I did not find that at all so i wonder if they played another game then me. Yes, the combat is violent and the setting is brutal and unforgiving but the violence is also a core element of the story. They should try to spend more time then a coffe break thinking about the game before they started to write their opinion piece. Time to add them my game reviewer ignore list while the DLC's are downloading.
First-person shooter role playing game that supports co-op play. You pick one of four character classes to play and then you explore the world, collect weapons and kill people that try to kill you. Real nice art style in this game.
Some years after the events in Borderlands a new group of characters explore the world of Pandora. The original cast are now in supporting roles as non playable characters and i really like the story and setting. Gameplay is like the first game and it is all about the Loot. There is always a better gun or shield waiting for you to be find in the next battle.
Strategy game for all those power mad people. You control a civilization and need to guide it from the dawn of time at 3000 B.C to to the stars. The game is turn based and take place on a map view of the game world were you see your towns and units. You need to select what city improvements to to build in each town and also build now towns to expand your empire. There are six other civilization besides your own and you can handle them with war or diplomacy. Combat is simple and you only have to move a unit onto a enemy and are then informed about the outcome of the battle.
Nice follow-up on Descent. The two most annoying things in this game is the thief (steal all my cool weapons) and the guide bot. The guide bot is on the players side but it always keep shooting me to tell me I'm going the wrong way. Like you would drive somewhere and give your wife a flare gun so she can alert you when she thinks your are going the wrong way. Double amount of weapons also as each weapon slot now contain two weapons :).
Take to role of Duke Nukem and kill aliens, pig cops and save the babes. Unlike to rest of the faceless heroes of other first person shooters Duke is a one man show on his own and drop one-liners as often as he drops aliens. In the game you go around the levels and kill of more or less anyone that look at you except some babes. To help you with that you have a guns, big guns and guns that shrink the enemy or freeze them so you can kick them into ice shards. All in all a great game and keep in mind that if they aliens try to take our babes the aliens need to die.
Action role-playing game where you play on earth after it has been hit by a nuclear apocalypse. You play in and around the ruins of Washington D.C and your are searching for your father. Great game :).

Grand strategy wargame where you can control any nation that existed during 1936-1948. Control the production, research, armed forces and many other things as you try to make sure your nation gets the most of the war. Always fun to rule the world and to play what if :).
Final chapter in the story of the Serpent riders from Heretic/Hexen and this time it's the last one, Eidolon that need to die. Four character classes to choose from this time as you kill all the minions first then hunt down Eidolon.
In this game one gets the chance to play a hitman. It was much better than i thought it would be even if the game had is problem. The nice thing is the many different ways to kill your targets besides running in with all guns blazing. For example, put poison in their food or add a bomb to their car. The story of the game is centred around our hitman finding out were he is from and what the bar code in his neck is all about.
Great first-person shooter co-op game where you and three others try to survive a zombie apocalypse. Each chapter in the campaign mode is about getting to the escape vehicle and characters not played by humans will be controlled by the computer until someone joins to play with you. You fight your way from one safe room to the next and if you all die you restart at the last one. The zombies in the game are slow to notice you but when they do they really moves fast and there are also a number of special zombies that demand special tactics. All in all a great game that is really fun to play and it's nice with a game to proves to idiots that people indeed play coop games (you know who you are...).
Nice turn based strategy game were you play a power mad wizard that try to take over the worlds of Arcanus and Myrror. You start out with a small town and then you have to take over territory and magical power nodes so you can research more powerful spells. The game ends when you banish all your opponents or cast the final spell of magic mastery.
This is a horizontally-scrolling arcade game were you play as a helicopter and shoot your way past each level. It s also possible to play two player and the second player then take to role of a jeep that have a controllable weapon turret and it can also jump to avoid the enemy.
Great save hostages style game. Better then action games such as Ghost Recon or Rainbow Six as the element of not killing everyone makes the game much more interesting. There are some fun weapons such as the beanbag shotgun, the Taser stun gun and my favourite, the Pepper-ball gun . All this are non lethal as the goal of the game is to take people alive and not to kill them. The enemy is also more fun as they act in more ways then simply shooting at you. This game is great for some good Co-op gameplay
In this game you control a syndicate with the ultimate goal of world domination. From you flying command central you send out cybernetic soldiers to different areas of the world to gain control over them. In these missions you have a view of the target city and give orders to you agents about what they should do and who they should kill. Between missions you need to spend the money you earn from the areas you control to research new cybernetics and weapons to give you soldiers so they have a better chance to complete the mission. Its always nice when you have all four of them walking around with miniguns and gauss guns.
Walk around, punch people out and say as many one liners as you can. This is a mix of action, adventure and stealth game. One fun thing with the game was the commentary mode in the developer version of the game were there are little icons on the levels that you can click to listen to the developers comments about the game, most of them talk about how late they put in all the things in the game
Dragons have returned to Tamriel and as one of the few that can speak the dragon language you can help defeat them. Nice open world with many quests and areas to explore, the only thing that brings the game down a bit is the retarded console like menus.
The story continues from Thief and Garret keeps moving around in the city, stealing things and getting mixed in the events of a new factions of the Hammers, the Mechanists. Always fun with servants that scream in fear when you emerge from the shadows :). Best level was Life of the Party.
Second follow-up on Unreal Tournament. The new game mode Onslaught was great fun where you could also use vehicles and the goal was to destroy the other teams reactors. Played this so much I was dreaming about flying around that tower on the demo level :).
Visit the 1960's where the Nazis has taken over the world with meachs and robotic guard dogs. Then Blazkowicz wakes up from his 14 years of coma to kill them. All of them. Real fun game and dual-wield of weapons is always cool :).
Great game that really capture the feel of the old 1994 game so i recommended this to anyone that liked the old ones. There is also a expansion called XCOM: Enemy Within. It adds some new elements such as the MEC trooper and a new human enemy faction to the game. The optimal mix for me was two MECís, two genetic soldiers and two human soldiers on each mission. Play it. Play it Now.
