While not as revolutionary as HL1, HL2 still managed to push the boundaries of gaming in terms of graphics, technology, and gameplay. With HL2, Valve made a risk and changed the settings from high-tech laboratories to an Orwellian dystopia and it pays off as the engine can now handle much larger maps. Lip-syncing and eyeball tracking give life to NPCs and the gravity gun was introduced to turn the physics technology into gameplay. This all makes HL2 a clockwork of gameplay-technology harmony.

A serviceable fighting game at its core, the fighting system is paired with a open world platformer game in single player campaign set in Konoha and the surrounding areas. If you meet an enemy, the game switches to fighting mode. Konoha has been adapted extremely well in terms of both visuals and gameplay. Unlocking more abilities give you access to more locations in the map, which come in handy during the many side quests and minigames you can partake in in addition to storyline missions.
Pokemon FireRed Version

While Pokemon did not invent the monster recruitment genre, it popularized it with cute monster design and Nintendo's marketing. Gameplay is simplistic rendition of classic turn based JRPGs, where you only fight one enemy at a time. The story is almost nonexistent and there are annoying gameplay issues such as limited moveset and certain unreplaceable moves. However, the world of pokemon is fully realized and there is enough depth, variety and polish to provide an overall enjoyable experience.

CS is one of the best competitive FPS out there, and GO updates it with better graphics, new modes including Arms Race, matchmaking, and microtransactions. Matchmaking is its biggest selling point, as finding players with the same skill to play with is essential to a good multiplayer experience. However weapon skins that were free in previous games are now paid items, some of which (like a bright orange sniper rifle) break the mood of the game. GO would've been a perfect game if not for this.

Fantastic Game. Nice atmosphere, responsive controls, cool armors. Great game and level design overall. Minimal storytelling works great. Starts very difficult and might put some people off due to no in game tutorials, for example the stats are never explained. There are some areas where I felt were impossible to go through without referring to wiki or game guides.
