The long series of third-person shooters row of saints is one of the funniest open world series as the games have given players infinite replay value, but reviews for the new reboot haven’t been that great. While it may not be a critics favorite, there’s no denying that it will give players hundreds of hours of content, just like saints row iv before that and Saints Row: The Third before.
But the ridiculous sandbox series isn’t the only one offering gamers great value for money, and Reddit users have been quick to realize the value they’ve gotten from their favorite games. Between a surprisingly deep tie between a video game and a movie and the free download of the most addictive online game, thousands of hours have been wasted on these.
The Orange Box (2007)
the orange box it’s the most obvious example of great value for money in gaming history. The Valve-developed package is made up of not one, not two, but three complete games. Package includes Half-Life 2: Episode 2 one of the most exciting sci-fi games with epic suspense, team strength 2an endlessly replayable and fun online Battle Royale, and Portalan absolutely groundbreaking game in terms of its mechanics.
Lart2150 explains: “I think I bought orange box for $50 and have 1,440 hours logged into Team Fortress 2, so that’s a hair under $.035/hour.” Each game could be sold separately at full price, and gamers would still be satisfied. Not only that, but which would all have been the highest rated games of 2007.
Rocket League (2015)
There’s no better value for money than something that’s free, and that’s exactly why Oneshowpony thinks rocket league It is the game that has given them more value. The Redditor notes: “I got it for free when it was on PS+ just as a joke and it has become one of my favorite games.”
rocket league it has one of the most ridiculous concepts as it’s essentially soccer where the players are cars and it’s exclusively online and it’s very addictive. Between having deeper customization options than any need for speed game, all the different types of games and playing against real people, it’s very easy to rack up thousands of hours in the outrageous game.
Crazy Max (2015)
Headlongjumping brings up a game that few mention, since not many play it Mad Maxwhich is a linked game Mad Max: Fury Road. Although games that are tied to blockbuster movies get a bad rap as little time is spent on them and they are more of a way to market the actual movie than anything else. Mad Max criminally overlooked.
The Redditor explains: “I paid $5 for it and played over 250 hours. What an underrated gem.” The 2015 game is open world, and the desolate dystopian wasteland is surprisingly fun to explore. And while 250 hours is a staggering amount to spend on a PS4 game that doesn’t have any online replay value, even gamers who don’t have that much free time can lose 50 hours in the tie.
Halo 3 (2007)
FutureCEOnamedNick thinks halo 3 it’s the best value for money game they’ve played, noting, “I’m not sure I’ve played anything else for two years.” halo 3 is almost the opposite of Mad Max when it comes to replay value. The game’s 2007 campaign only takes about 10 hours to complete, and aura experts could even finish it on hard mode in half the time.
Nevertheless, Halo 3 The online mode is packed with different game modes, including classics like Deathmatch and Capture the Flag, which fans can play for hundreds of hours. And when it comes to the campaign mode, while short, it has replay value as it can be played cooperatively, where one player controls the Master Chief and the other controls the Arbiter.
Grand Theft Auto V (2013)
After grand theft auto ivwhich was unfortunately a smaller open world than its predecessor and even more limited, Grand Theft Auto V balanced the scales. Yes_lad breaks down how great value the 2013 game gave them, noting, “I spent £20 on it and I’ve got 6k hours on it. That’s like £0.003 an hour.”
Sometimes, GTA V limits to being a simulator game to the The Sims, as the launch is packed with mini-games like golf and yoga. San Andreas is the closest thing to a living world that breathes like a sandbox game on the seventh generation of consoles. And with the improved graphics and more heists, it has only gotten better since its release.
The Last of Us 2 (2020)
Ftpini has a unique take on the issue at hand. Where most Reddit users mention games that are infinitely replayable and have thousands of hours of online play, they mention the last of us 2, a game with a 12-hour story mode. The Reddit user explains: “It probably only took 12-15 hours to complete, but it left the strongest impression. I really loved that game.”
To be fair, a short game that players will remember for the rest of their lives is just as profitable as one with mediocre, repetitive gameplay that players spend hundreds of hours on. After all, the last of us 2 It should only be played by players who aren’t afraid to cry a little.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (2009)
Like the last of us 2, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was developed by Naughty Dog, and the developer has a knack for leaving lasting impressions on gamers with amazing story-driven games. Naughty Dog is world class when it comes to that sort of thing, and TheHighKing112 is referring to the 2009 game, along with its sequel, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, as the best value for money. The Redditor bought “uncharted 2 Y 3 for a total of $10″.
At the very least, the games are replayable because it’s almost impossible to find all the hidden gems, and it would drive any finisher crazy. And now, the value for money would be even better today as players can get the first three remastered games with the bundle. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.
The Crew 2 (2018)
Just about any racing game could be called great value for money, be it simulator-like. grand tourer series or the exciting midnight club, which gives players a great sense of speed. Most racing games have incredibly deep customization options, lots of different cars and open worlds and/or countless race tracks.
However, Akarii points to crew 2 as the racing game with the best value for money. When it comes to vehicle options, the 2018 game allows players to control just about anything, not just cars. Players can choose between cars, motorcycles, planes, and even speedboats, and the open world is so vast that it’s made up of San Francisco, New York, and iconic locations like Mount Rushmore.
Red Dead Redemption 2 (2018)
While westerns aren’t as popular as they once were, the genre is thriving in gaming. red dead redemption 2 not only is it cinematic in its story and in its look, but it’s incredibly dense. This deleted user believes that the game gave them the best value for money, as it is full of mini-games and events that happen randomly while players are in free movement.
Just as Naughty Dog is world class when it comes to memorable stories in games, Rockstar is the gold standard when it comes to open world sandboxes. Unless each player spends hundreds of hours in the world, no one will have the same experience. Random events occur at specific times on the game’s 24-hour clock in different locations spread throughout the desert, and for players to catch each one of them, it would take thousands of hours.
Batman: Arkham Knight (2015)
the batman arkham The series is one of the greatest achievements in gaming. Between the combat system and the exploration, fans have played the campaigns multiple times. And while the game is far from the most acclaimed release of the Arkham series, R520JR can’t sing arkham knight praise enough and think you gave them the best value for money.
The Redditor adds: “I could drive the Batmobile and beat enemies for the rest of my life.” Ironically, when it was first released in 2015, the Batmobile was the most criticized aspect of the overdriven game, as it was only partially controllable. Still, there’s no denying how much fun it is to press the DualShock’s shutter button and watch the vehicle tear through roofs.
