It's Not Easy Being Geek
I believe a huge part of my geekhood has been inherited by my father, who at the ripe age of 53 still manages to have the best and coolest new games before I even have a chance to drool very much over them in his new PC Gamer magazines. It's hard being a with-it geek when your father has already beaten the game you wish you could afford.
My dad's newest acquisition is FarCry 2. Unlike the old game, which was pretty fixed in most of its environmental content, this one allows far more freedom. Roam at random and blow things up and do your missions with zest and gusto. No more closed corridors where the only doors are to your next checkpoint or maybe just some extra ammo or health packs. You can explore to your little heart's content. Or really, to my little heart's content. You might be a player that wants to get things done and move on with the job. Either way, FarCry 2 is bound to be a grenade belt of kicks and giggles.
P.S. Do I even NEED to mention the beautiful graphics?
