I don't mean to be a party pooper, but I only played Far Cry 2 for a couple of hours before dropping it. I simply couldn't deal with the process of having to trek/drive halfway across the map towards a mission objective, killing various enemies along the way, fulfilling my mission, then returning and encountering the same enemies again on my way back. The enemy respawn rates were simply too ridiculous for me to handle. As a disclaimer, I've always preferred games where areas I've cleared of enemies stay cleared out, at least for a long time, if not permanently.

If there was a good story attached to the game, then unfortunately I didn't get to see it.

Just offering a different point of view, hopefully no one will take offense to that :).

You are not being fair spark. Far cry 2 is an 11 years old game. What you complain about, legitimaly nowdays, is beside the point here.
Farcry 2 was, beside being extremly buggy, as open world precursor as you could get. Common rules on how to make traveling and encouters had not been established yet.
Personaly, farcry had atmosphere in there. I was feeling much more in africa then than in latin america or tibet in the next instalments.
But god did i cursed the malaria mechanic back then.

Farcry 2 is like the first crysis. To understand the greatness of those games, you have to mentaly try to put yourself back in the time they were made. If you do, you understand how ahead of their time they were.

Always was more of a killer instinct fan back in 1994, the age of arcade. Altought i used to like the old drunk guy.

Ki was never my jam, same with mortal Kombat. I don't know what it is about them I just don't like it. I think it has something to do with how large the startup of moves are so you feel like you're playing with extra delay. Makes everything feel heavy. Then again I play hyper fighters so I guess that thought makes sense

The first 2 mortal kombat were light on combos. Beside, the first one was already 2 years old and i don't think the second one was out yet. So it was out of the arcade picture.
When tekken got out, the rage was also all about KI. I think my choice was solely based on looks. You must admit that the original tekken, altought groundbreaking in 3D, was a total eyesore compare to the others.
But even if i was never a tekken fan, i played a lot of soul caliber. It sure feels different and thus i understand your point.

If i had to identify to one fighting game in my life, it would definitly be x-men vs street fighter. I overplayed that game, even to the point of going to tournements and even win some of them.

It the end, personal taste is never wrong.

Oh no, for sure Tekken 1 was just hideous, but it was groundbreaking. I'm personally most interested in Sprite based fighters or "cell shaded models" series like BlazBlue, guilty gear, and Skullgirls. My first time playing a fighting game was Tekken 2 though so moving forward to Tekken 7 almost felt like a return home.... Well that and I went right back to my original main. Something great about a legacy character in a legacy focused game. Now they finally gave me both forms of King ::peace::
