Far Cry 3

7 posts in this topic

Looking at getting a new game after Christmas and Far Cry 3 has me intrigued. I haven't played the previous 2, so I don't know much about them, but reviews seem great. Anybody out there recommend it, how much gameplay is there, etc.? Thanks in advance.

My buddy brought in the PC version to work yesterday (and his 360 controller) and we messed around on it. I didn't know much about it, but after messing with it all day it's pretty cool. It's open world, lots of side quests, and even gathering (like Red Dead lol). Most people have loved it so I don't think you'd make a bad choice, and I don't see it being a quick play unless you skip everything (like all open world games). I never played the first 2 either but from what I can see, it's a whole different story line.

Yeah I've heard the comparisons to Red Dead which I liked, so I'm hoping this is more of the same in some ways. Thanks.

It is the best story I have every played, everything works well together. It took me 26 hours to complete without messing around.

Good news. Are the side missions enjoyable or pointless?

Not as good as Red Dead, but it's still a pretty good game. It's basically an open world FPS with some RPG elements (crafting, character development with perks).

The side missions are pretty repetitive. They are fun the first few times, but can get old...depending on the player of course.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
