Hello 360Haven. I am here to post my opinion on action games. If you would like to input your opinion, then feel free to do so. Know first and foremost my favourite game genre is RPGs. My first experience with action adventure games was The Legend of Zelda series, particularly The Ocarina of Time. I had a lot of fun playing that game start to finish on multiple occasions. With the Xbox 360 and PS3, new games of the genre have been released with their own intrigue on the genre. You would think that since the Nintendo 64 days, more effort would be put into games of the (new) generation of consoles. The latest game I have played is Darksiders (the 1st one). Almost every moment of playing this game has been tedious, annoying and, frankly, boring. I feel that this game was meant for children, lacking the aspects to make it for mature audiences. Now comparing this to, say, the Ninja Gaiden series, there is a great degree in quality between the 2. They both involve killing monsters, collecting currency from killing said monsters and have the goal of saving the world. Yes, Ninja Gaiden has boobs to gawk at, but I am excluding that aspect in my opinion. With every pain in the ass minute I have with Darksiders, I have a hell of a great time with Ninja Gaiden, even the xbox original game. Similar games I find plain are the God of War series, despite all the hype and jive about the series. Story is kind of important to me. Maybe as an RPGer I lack a taste for most games which involve hacking and slashing to the end. Maybe I'm right in that such games are not give decent enough attention. I don't know. I just know that Darksiders, God of War and others bore me, whereas Ninja Gaiden entertains me. That is my opinion. If you would like to give yours, then please do so.
