Anyone else feel there's something missing from today's games?

    Went back to Metro 2033 to play through it again on Ranger before I play through Last Light. Forgot how amazing the game really is! The storyline, AI, etc. probably still the best ive played in the last few years.

    Also the last time I played 2033, it was on a GTX470, now playing it on a 780, its like a completely different game.

    I've been playing through Last Light finishing up trying all difficulty levels, currently 3/4 through Hardcore. I may skip Ranger and go straight to Ranger Hardcore. In 2033 there wasn't much difference between Hardcore and Ranger.

    I miss some things from 2033, like the way they had
    ammo and stuff hidden in cars.
    Overall I think Last Light is the better game, and the DLC kicks ass, though some of it is pretty brutal to get through.

    I'm also going back and finishing up NFS Rivals. With the command line switch -GameTime.MaxSimFps ## -GameTime.ForceSimRate ##+, you can set it to play at any frame rate your sys can handle. I ended up using 40, because at 60, I still had dips to 35 or less that would really make it bog down. On 40 it stays much more stable for me and I've yet to find an event I can't get gold on.

    There's a lot of games you can't buy high frame rates and/or smooth gameplay with though. I've seen some even with 780 Ti cards say they have problems with certain games due to poorly coded scripts, bad browsers, (Like Uplay), driver conflicts, etc. Much of the play-ability on PC games anymore comes at the user end in the way of special hacks and tweaks.

    For now I'm still very pleased with the 7970 I got for $330 with 3 free games, but when Maxwell comes out, I may try Nvidia again, unless Freesync turns out better than Gsync, and AMD comes up with something like ShadowPlay.

    Yep, I have been using Metro Last Light so far just for the benchmark. Playing around with overclocking of my 780. But its been a year or so since beating Metro 2033, so I wanted to freshen up on the story, try to get the other (better) ending, then play Last Light.
