Serious Sam HD

U.S. $6.79 on Steam right now.

Anyone played it? Like it? Is it just waves and waves of meanies or is there an actual story?

Same game, better graphics.

The original was pretty much waves and waves of enemies, with a story only in the sense that it had an end boss. It was pretty goddamn awesome though.

The moment story started mattering in FPS games is the moment right before FPS started to get shitty.

I.E. Shortly after HL came out.

I disagree. I start a game for the game play. I generally finish for the story. I don't need a huge story, but "go kill shit" doesn't cut it.

"Go kill shit" used to be all that mattered for me but not anymore which is why I never finished painkiller. There needs to be a good story involved these days otherwise single player gets really boring in a hurry.

A good story can help make up for boring enemy designs, shitty AI, bland encounter setups and stupid gameplay mechanics.

Then you're playing boring games.

I still play Quake, Serious Sam, and UT.

I bought Serious Sam. It was worth the money if only to see it poke fun at Indiana Jones...

You've taken a great decision Mooga. I played the S.Sam: First & Second Encounters on normal and had a blast.

Then I played them on Serious... Now that was some crazy stuff. If you ever try that...Good luck. You are given twice as much ammo, but enemies deal a lot more of damage. I had to abuse some 'glitches' (like allowing a bull to push me out of the map so I could blast a 20 rocket-spewing mechs from safety) in order to do it, but it was fun and challenging.

I *ALWAYS* play it on serious because there just is no other way. However extra enemy strength and exponential extra enemies no, just extra enemies per player.
