Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon
Built using the lauded Far Cry 3 engine, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is equal parts highly polished modern FPS and delightfully nostalgic 80s retro homage. This game is deliberately over the top and extreme, sitting on your chest and hooting in your face because you just aren’t manly enough to play it. The titular Blood Dragons are giant, neon dinosaurs that can shoot lasers out of their eyes, and it isn’t even close to the craziest thing you’ll come upon. It is loud, bright, stupid, and undeniably and amazingly fun. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon might not last long or force you to think about anything in a particularly meaningful way, but it is a hell of a ride while it lasts and a blast to play through.
