The lights are on
GIO FragFest: Camaraderie through digital bloodshed
FragFest 7: Saturday August 27th
beginning at 1:00 PM PDT (4:00 PM EDT)
The games chosen for each months main event are chosen by the community, and now is the time to cast your vote. After voting feel free to post a comment with your selection and a bit on why you chose it - rouse your fellow members!
Voting will end this Sunday, August 21st, and the winning games will be posted here, so be sure to check back on Monday so you know what game(s) to get your hands on, if you don't already own a copy.
This month we are creating separate polls for each platform. Please, only vote within the thread for your platform of choice. DO NOT vote within another platform unless you have full intention of attending that event.
DLC is not a requirement, but is always encouraged.
I wasn't expecting to hear the group suggest Red Faction Guerrilla with such enthusiasm, but I am pleasantly surprised. That game has exceptionally fun multiplayer that so few people have ever experienced! Best of all, it can be picked up for a pittance even new.
That's a difficult choice, but I went with GTA IV. The prospect of sucker-splattering fellow GIO'ers with a garbage truck is simply too enticing to pass up. Also, why isn't Black Ops an option? I just figured it would be.
For everyone voting for GTA, I merely pose this question--why simply run over or shoot someone when you can COLLAPSE A BUILDING ON THEM!
I'm going to point out that Guerilla has the BEST multiplayer that noone has ever played, while a rather more sizable chunk of us have already experienced GTA multiplayer.
For anyone caught on the fence about buying Red Faction, go for it! For $13 (price used at GameStop,) you get a long, awesome single-player campaign, alongside the aforementioned stellar multiplayer.
The reason I'm begging so hard for your votes is that I know how awesome a Guerilla FragFest would be. Please, just do it!
Remember, variety is the spice of life!
I have Red Faction and liked the campaign, but try as I might I just couldn't get into the multiplayer. I would rather have a familiar game with a different group(as in, "friendly bunch of like-minded fellows" and not "jaggoffs who rap into their mics like someone actually gives two s***s"). It's just my opinion, though. No need to go spreading it around.
Red Faction FTW! Lol. Its the only one that I have on the list and it sounds extremely fun! Lol
I voted for GTA IV- hoping peeps come with at least TLaD for the DLC.
I don't know if anything has changed in the years since I traded in Guerilla, but the matchmaking options in there were terrible when I played, and I couldn't get into a lobby with friends. If it's still like that, it doesn't seem worth the fuss; hopefully it's been remedied.
Also both games, and every game, needs theater mode; makes for much more interesting and inclusive wrap-up vids.
I'm torn.... Waddledee you make a good argument. I have a few days to decide, so we'll see.
I went with Red Faction Guerilla. Might be the only way I get some achievements in that game.
RFG also, tied it up!
@Fever Ray- Who said we would play solely matchmaking? I've tried private matches with friends before, and getting friends into your lobby is quick, non-buggy, and easy.
On that note, I'm thinking anytime we're wrangling more than 8 people at a time we need to be defaulting to private matches. No XP is earned, whatever, the complications from screwy matchmaking have hindered us from starting past events in a timely manner.
FragFest Matchmaking Nightmare - Homefront. God what a day.
Hmmmmm. All these would be a good choice.
I certainly hope Red Faction wins because I don't see myself participating this frag fest.
