HIGH This is the funniest Deadpool story Daniel Way's ever written.

LOW The delayed aiming mechanic

WTF "And if any of you nerds are puffy about Rogue being able to fly in this game when she can't fly in the comics right now, take a bath, move out of your parents' basement and maybe you'll get to kiss a REAL girl." Hey game, you know what? F**********ck you.

HIGH Seeing that 90s-style goth club vamps are alive and well.

LOW The embarrassingly awful final boss fight.

WTF I'm sucking his blood from a foot away? Is that a power? No, just bad graphics.

HIGH The drive from Blaine County back to Los Santos, and seeing the skyline for the first time. It was only then that I began to grasp just how much larger the map was compared to any other game.

LOW Trevor and Michael fighting over the same thing for the fifteenth time.

WTF First-person doggystyle. It'll make you laugh.

LOW The gigolo missions, the level design… most of it, really.

Fafnir, I Choose You!

Shin Megami Tensei IV Screenshot

HIGH Blowing away a boss well above my level in a single turn with some well-chosen elemental attacks, timely smirks, and a lucky crit.

LOW My previous try at that boss, where my ally's poor choice of elemental attack caused the boss to smirk and wipe my party with just two attacks.

WTF Is that a penis demon? I think it's a penis demon.

Johnny Get Your Gat

HIGH "Asha, that lightbulb has a family."

LOW The disappointing "sidequests" are just groups of area-control events you would probably do yourself anyway.

WTF How do you get a simple concept like TK mayhem so wrong?
