I agree, BF3 has been a big let down. Probably one of the most frustrating games that I own. I stuck through it for a while, but it’s seriously missing a “fun” factor. I can’t really describe what it is besides just being more frustrating than fun.
I just finished the main story element of Saints Row 3, and I still love that game. Open-world, ridiculous, and endless. Just the way games should be.
I think our friend and co-worker put it best, “Before I was willing to work to respect a game to enjoy it. Now I want the game to also work to respect me in the process.”
