    No, no, I did played in Veteran the second time I finished the game and that doesn't change what I hated of the game. Killing is still easy, but you are killed faster, which can get frustrating at times considering enemies will continue spawning until you reach the objective or the trigger to be more exact. Enemies do seem to have more life, you have to shoot them more, but that makes things worse, makes the game unrealistic. I like the weapon system to simulate the difficulty of aiming and hitting the target, not making the guns have less power. I like real weapons that kill in few shots, but I like the game to make it difficult to hit the target like in STALKER or Farcry or in fact, COD1-2. When I said overpowered I meant that the weapons kill with 1-2 shots (this I like it) and it's just so easy to aim that you can almost kill 3 people in 1 second (don't like it). No effective recoil if you shoot properly, etc.

    Empire Earth. First one was the greatest RTS i've ever played. 2nd one was simplified where as it made it an average game and then the 3rd was dumbed down even more which made it terrible. FAIL.

    The reason I liked the first one so much was because you should pretty much setup your civilization in such a way where any strategy would work yet still be pretty balanced.

    no offense, but COD 4 does have recoil, just alot of the smacktards out there are downloading stuff to get rid of it, and also see thru walls etc. Your best off to play against People you Know primarily than some stranger if you catch my drift.

    1. Neverwinter Nights 1 \ NWN2 sucked compared it the 1st.
    2. Need For Speed any thing after 2000 seemed like they missed what i loved about it.
    3. Ghost Recon \ GRAW is a load of crap compared to what GR was.
    4. Deus Ex \ O boy what a mess the second one was.
    5. Rainbow 6 \ Dam what were they thinking.
    6. Call Of Duty \ any thing after the 2nd sucks and 4th one was total crap

    I'm talking about single player, and I didn't mod the game. The game has recoil if you spray, but if you click for every bullet, which is how I always shoot (maybe because I play a lot of CSS and have been playing since CS was a mod), you don't have it or is so fast that you can kill 3 enemies in a second without noticing it. No effective recoil as I said.

    LOL. Could it be we are agreeing in 2. 5. and 6.? Oh and 3. forgot about it. Ghost Recon... I almost forgot how good it was because of GRAW1/2...

    WoW, well after Lich king they shouldn't do anymore and just make a Warcraft 4 (emerald dream?).
    Call of Duty in WW2.
    Final Fantasy, after 10 it gone to shit.
    Pokemon, what do we have now, 450 fucking pokemon?? WAY TOO MANY. Just throw in a long ass 3D RPG that everyone's waiting for starting from the beginning region of Kanto and make your way up to Johto and (maybe) Hoenn, and that be the end of all the pokemon franchise.

    I agree, the only thing I'd change in that list is NFS, I think Underground 2 was the best and everything after just didn't do it for me

    SOF3 - absolute betrayal of the franchise

    NFS 2000 (Porsche Unleashed) - brilliant in its time, sequels never lived up to expectations and a racing sim turned into arcade chaser. Blach. Undergraound didnt deliver IMO. Played it for a few hours then lost interest. And that STUPID road layout. Nowhere in the world would there be a city or an island with such asinine unrealistic road planning.

    an optimized engine isnt a bad thing at all, considering there are a few games that run like crap (Doom3, Crysis)

    I think since Crystal Dynamics took over development, the game has gotten new life.
    Tomb Raider: Legend was a fairly decent game, and Underworld is looking to be quite nice

    no f'n way mortal kombat game if done right can be great fun, you just broke a lot of my heart

    they need to stop making championship manager, its not even made by the same team anymore and every year the old team bring out football manager which just happens to every year crush it in sales and gameplay

    Street fighter OMG what is this bash fighting games day.

    Ima gonna get Goro on you now and teach you a gaming lesson!

    pokemon was cool on the gameboy yellow red ect gold was good too but after that it got stale just the exact same shitty dungeons repetitive battles and crapo story line, new pokemon where jsut rehashes with new animations and a different name

    they need to stop all the shitty Need for speeds and FIFA street games they just suck.

    yeah nfs:porche was cool, i liked it so much, after that just a pointless driving and alot's of fast and furios theme
    turok :the frist game was good but after that it's totaly disappointing

    yeah cod 4 is realy an easy game's,
