    Just fired up this game after a long time. It is possibly the benchmark for open world first person shooters. Unlike many newer games of this ilk, including the newer Far Cry's it is rather unforgiving on a hard setting. I am loving it.

    Just my two cents.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! :)

    I have Far Cry 3, but never really got around to playing it much. How do Far Cry 2 and Far Cry 3 compare?

    Thanks for your two cents.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you as well Sarge!

    2 was the pinnacle for me.

    Personally, I'll still heavily into Ark Survival Evolved. The frame rate drops to 1fps at times, I've been kicked out the game far too often, but when it works, boy does it work!!

    Have a merry Christmas, and a fantastic Hogmanay!

    Bet not too many know what Hogmanay is - but if you have been to Scotland over the holidays you will never forget it!

    I played the original and quite enjoyed it didn't go any further but might be something worth looking for.

    Yes, I had no idea what Hogmanay was. I thought it was just Bruvas being Bruvas and being funny. :) Didn't realize it was an actual thing.

    Always really liked FC2. There was a lot to like, and a lot to get frustrated with. Too much of the same stuff, over and over. But the open world was awesome and fun. Always wanted to try new ways to get the objective. Should have had more content. Played it for hours and hours!

    The respawning checkpoints needed to go, but apart from that it was pretty good. Doing the same thing over and over is how all of the far cry games work :p

    Exactly! A "cleared checkpoint" should have stayed cleared.

    Far cry 3 is awesome, way better than 4 IMO - love the island mecca and all the cool hangliding and stuff, was rad - downloaded it from the backwards compatible just to do it all again on one.
