But not 100% sure what to get so I was after some advice really. I'm not a big time gamer, very casual really but still love playing games.

To help you this is what I currently own - PS3 - Fifa 13, GTA 4, Read Dead Redemption, Mega Drive Classics, F1 2012 and Skyrim.

I don't tend to like first person shooters and I avoid them generally. But, I've seen a trailer and a gameplay video for Far Cry 3 and think it looks really good.

What do people think? After playing Skyrim I definitely edge towards an open world type game.

Batman Arkham City was awesome

After Red Dead it's my favourite game.

I'm hanging on for Tomb Raider, but it keeps getting put off.

But trust me, that Batman game was brilliant.

It's a top game, I might start replaying it tonight, although I do have about 4 unfinished games that I just can't be arsed with.

Far Cry 3 is a truly superb bit of gaming, and I'm not a big FPS player either.

I never really got into Arkham City, despite loving Arkham Asylum.

If you just wanna muck about and have a laugh then Saints Row the Third is well worth a look, it's like GTA on crack :lol:

Not sure about Batman. I watched the gameplay trailer and it didn't wow me straight away like Far Cry 3 did. It looked good don't get me wrong but just not sure.

So have you played Far Cry 3 then Spawny? You think a non FPS fan can get on with it?

I could just go for something cheap like Liberty City Stories as I haven't played that yet and I know I love GTA. I just wanted to try and be a little different. I even considered WWE13 for a laugh.

I was unsure about Batman for months, didn't seem like my cup of tea at all. But it is brilliant. No idea about far cry, again it's not really my cup of tea. Graphics look pap too.

I just looked at the trailer for it

Looked quite good to me, doesn't really show all the side games, solving riddlers riddles etc. and the training to improve your fighting throughout is really good. I like games with puzzles though. That's why I've always been a TR fan

I got uncharted 3 and max payne 3, I wouldn't bother them that's for sure. Ok but not great

Unchartered 3 was another one that tempted me but maybe not eh?

Like I said Batman looks good it just doesn't look like my cup of tea. Far Cry does its just the whole FPS aspect (which I understand is a large part of the game!) worries me a little.

I could go for two or three games but I tend to concentrate on one at a time.

get uncharted 2..It'll be cheap and if you like it, get 3. I loved 2. Haven't played 3 yet.

What don't you usually like about FPS games?

Far Cry 3 is an open world, with side missions, challenges, etc to complete as well as the story missions. You can approach it in a number of different ways (I, for example, will usually be found on the hill above an enemy base with a silenced sniper rifle), and graphically it is stunning (at least the PC version).

So it really depends on what your aversion to FPS games is. I don't tend to enjoy games like Call of Duty, but I enjoy Far Cry 3.

Another one which is a really enjoyable FPS that doesn't take itself too seriously is Borderlands 2. It's a crazy game, really OTT characters and stuff, and a great laugh. Great for multi-player too, either split screen or online.

Uncharted 2 is a great shout, really good game, best of the trilogy. Another PS3 exclusive I'd recommend is inFamous / inFamous 2. Open world with super powers... :fonz:

Infamous I liked, it is similar to Batman in some respects. Uncharted 2 I liked a lot, much better than 3.

I do like the COD ones but I haven't bothered with the latest black ops one.

No doubt that Uncharted 2 is the best of the trilogy. I never finished the original, and the third is good, but 2 is a truly epic game.

Hard to explain why I don't like FPS. An example is COD. Its fun if you're round a mates house for a couple of hours, but I wouldn't want to spend £40 and x amount of hours playing a game that just involves running around like a blue arsed fly shooting at people. Games like Skyrim and GTA and Read Dead have so much more about them. Far Cry looks like it might have that extra bit too.

In Far Cry 3 you do what you want when you want. You climb radio towers to reveal the map (a la unlocking the map in Assassin's Creed, if you've played that), you can clear out enemy outposts which gives you places to fast travel to and restock ammo, you can hunt the wildlife to get components to craft new holsters and other equipment (like wallets, quivers, pouches), do various side quests for people, drive around in a dune buggy... so there's more to it than the point A to point B gun play of CoD.

That sounds good to me. Think I'll go with that and maybe try and pick up Unchartered 2 if I can get it nice and cheap.

Cheers guys.

Well, different territories have different wildlife in them... so in one place you might be surrounded by goats or deer which is fine, in another you might find yourself face to face with a leopard, tiger, or bear :fonz:
