They're big dumb action films, calculated to appeal to our most base satisfaction. They cost millions of dollars to make and market, but ultimately they're nothing more than shooting things and looking at pretty sights.

You know what, I really enjoy action blockbusters. I know you're not supposed to but I REALLY do. They're not the most amazing games but at the end of the day, I like explosions and shooting things and that is what these games give me.

I wouldn't say they're game of the year but at least they have a game that is fun to play. I feel like Bioshock Infinite is an amazing game but I had absolutely no fun actually shooting in that game. In fact, I just changed the game to easiest difficulty after a while because all I wanted to do was finish the game and I didn't want to sit there being unsatisfied with the enemies.

I didn't feel like there was anything wrong with the mechanics but I just did not enjoy it for whatever reason. At least with games like Dead Space (where the mechanics are broken and there is no innovation) I had fun shooting.

It's one of the main reasons Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was so fun to me.  Although that game could be said to be innovative and it had solid mechanics.

Blood Dragon was surprisingly good for how short it is, The cinematics, (although dirty) were great too. I really enjoyed the visual effects and the storyline. The whole game made you feel like Terminator or some other awesome bad a". I was just sad to see the game end so quickly, even after I collected all the collectibles I still felt the game was cut too short. It definitely has the potential to be its own game and series. Maybe they will make a Blood Dragon 2 in the future. BUt besides that, it was a great game with great graphics, great story and an awesome character with super cool moves.
