Darn you're all being honest. I was wondering if we could get him to actually buy Aliens.

Aliens is terrible according to just about everyone.
Doom 3 is supposed to be good, but I haven't played it.
And Left 4 Dead 2 is good, but only if you're playing with friends.

I'd say get Doom 3 if you're just playing alone or Left 4 Dead 2 if you know you've got friends to play with, which you don't seem to. So I say Doom 3.


Why are you assuming I have no one to play L4D2 with?


Thinking about it I do sound like a jerk with that. Sorry. I mean that if you're just randomly asking on some gamefaqs board if you should get a multiplayer game then I would assume that they don't have a friend or something playing it unless they bring it up.

So when you ask "Should I get this single player game, or this multiplayer game" I assume you plan to play them by yourself. You could have asked your friend who is playing L4D2 "Should I get that" and start a discussion from there.

Again, sorry if that offended you or something. Just me making an assumption.

If you get L4D2, hit me up on Steam and I'll play with you. I love Left 4 Dead! (steam in sig)

Eagerly awaiting FFXIV's inevitable failure. Even a fantastic game cannot withstand initial bad press & the long-dead MMO format. Sad but true.

Aliens isn't the worst game in the world. I can name a few, like Legendary, Hour of Victory, Turning Point, Homefront...etc but it's the bad AI and lack of graphical polish that was shown in the demo they showed is what hurt it. Other than that it's a mechanically sound shooter. Just very average.

L4D2.

Aliens sucks, and Doom 3 BFG is inferior to the original.

That's a fine point, however when stacked up next to greats like Doom 3 and L4D2 average doesn't hold up.

L4D2 by a mile. It's easily the best co-op game ever made. I've got around 800 hours played and still play it a few hours a week usually.

While Aliens:CM may not be the worst game ever made, it's far from being considered average. What I found rather amusing is how, after AvP 2010 came out, a lot of people were upset by that game and said they couldn't wait for Aliens:CM because Gearbox was going to do it right. If only they could have known...
