    "Fallout 2 and Wasteland 2 are much better "Fallout" stories than Fallout 3. The thing with Fallout 3 is that it packs hundreds of hours of gameplay, which I was ready and willing to commit to, but the VATS system does not stand up to hundreds of hours worth of holding my interest. I think by hour twenty I would jump into VATS, spam headshot, and hit enter. Rinse, repeat. That's combat. I recommend it for the story but as far as interesting gameplay mechanics, it's just not there."

    "NieR: Automata is a modern classic. This game lures you in with its animesque art style and cutesy robot girl characters, but don't be fooled - this game will lure you in and drop the hammer, hard and fast. This game is stellar, from the constantly-evolving gameplay to the deep philosophical plot. When I played it, I thought it was just going to be your typical JRPG action game - and I couldn't have been more blown away. The plot, without going into much detail, is going to surprise you at every turn. Keep playing, even when it seems like you're finished - just trust me, that'll make sense when you get there."

    " Recommended 109.7 hrs on record Posted: December 5 I have not played Syndicate or Origins yet so I will be writing this review without those in mind. As a long time Assassin's Creed player I was wary about playing this as it obviously had mixed reviews and a rocky start. And after a somewhat slow start, this game really picks up and has become one of my favorites. Pros: -Great stealth -Beautiful graphics -They really nailed the history -Really fun side missions (murder mysteries, puzzles) -So many different ways to play (sneaky, brute, sniper) -Action mechanics and assassinations moves change with the weapon and are super fun -Brutal kills -Above average story -One of the best as far as attention to detail -Changing weather -Fighting was actually harder! Gone are the days I can counter kill 30 people in a row Now that being said there were definitely some things that could have been improved"

I was looking for something stimulating and inspiring to share with him while I hangout with him in the evening for a few hours. He is a big fan of the original PAC MAN game. One night while I was online, I found this amazing PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX. PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX allows my son to play PAC MAN for hours on end because there are so many different types of challenges and mini-games. This keeps him occupied while I have to clean up the house and make dinner. My son absolutely loves playing PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX and learning new tips and strategies.
