Last week I finally beat Fallout 3. According to Steam I put in about 36 hours worth of game play, which is WAY WAY less than I put into Skyrim, a game I abandoned about 3/4 of the way through the story.
Quick Review: Fallout 3 is really fun but left me wanting more. Like, it just ended really anticlimactically and you're not left with the option of continuing to play and explore like in Red Dead Redemption. Your only choices are to start all over again or go back to a save point and put off the final mission. I get that they wanted to finish the story but it's a weird decision for a game that's so big with so many side missions.
So after beating Fallout 3 I decided to try out another game I bought for super cheap at last years Steam Summer Sale, Tomb Raider. Sweet Fancy Moses this game looks fantastic. I know sound like a moron talking about Fallout 3 and Tomb Raider when each of their sequels are the new hotness but give me a break I'm just getting back into gaming at a regular rate.
Turns out I when I wrote my mini review on my computer a couple weeks ago I wasn't giving it the credit it deserved. I fired up Tomb Raider cranked all the settings to 11 and ran another benchmark and it clocks in at an average 61 frames per second. That's why I posted the video above. Sometimes I'm in awe of just how good this game looks, and it already has a sequel out that looks even better! I can't wait to try out a few newer games, if old ones look this good I can't imagine what's in store. In fact, I'm really really afraid I'm about to fall into a pc gaming rabbit hole. Next thing I know I'm going to have one of those ridiculous glowing keyboards and everything is going to be water-cooled. Who cares how much it costs, my kids probably aren't going to college anyway.
