What Should I Play Next?

Ok, dorks, I recently finished playing Bioshock Infinite and found it a great big barrel of meh after really liking the first two.  I currently have a large catalog of games that were on sale on Steam that I need to get through.  They include:

  • Assassin’s Creed
  • Assassin’s Creed 2
  • Fallout 3
  • Fallout: New Vegas
  • L.A. Noire
  • Mass Effect
  • Mass Effect 2
  • The Witcher 2

Sound off and let me know which is most worthy of my time.  I paid for all of those slightly more than what I would normally pay for one game.  This reflects both my lack of game playing initiative and my cheapness.

    If you already have a copy of and have not played it yet, Fallout 3 a thousand times. While I have not played any of the others (besides New Vegas), Fallout 3 is probably my favorite game I’ve played in the past decade. It’s one of those games that’s so good, I’ve played it through twice (making different decisions along the way) and I still wish I could forget everything I know about the game and play it through again.

    Ok, here are my suggestions assuming you haven’t made up your mind yet…

    1st – Assassin’s Creed
    Reason – This game is almost a 180 from Bioshock:infinite. Go from a tight FPS with superpowers, to a more grounded 3rd person open world game. This game also has some (ok many issues) but it is still really fun for the most part.

    After that I would play them in the following order

    2nd – Fallout 3
    3rd – Mass Effect
    4th – Mass Effect 2
    5th – LA Noire
    6th – Witcher 2
    7th – Assassin’s Creed 2
    8th – Fallout New Vegas

    That way you mix up your game genre’s while giving each game a chance to breathe on its own before getting swallowed up by its sequal. (With the exception of Mass Effect 2, but one of the great things about the first two Mass Effects is how the story and characters blend together. Also, the first Mass Effect is so good and short enough that you will probably want to keep playing after you finish it.)

      I should also make clear that I did not make my list based on what I thought was the best game, only in which order I would think somebody would enjoy each game as best they can assuming you are going to play each game at one point or another.

    While you’re on steam, you should pick up the Stanley Parable. Only takes about 3 hours to play through, and it’s one of the funniest games I’ve played in a while. Might be a nice breather for in between some of those epic games in your list.
