Play Half Life 2 then. Clocked it twice on X-box, the scenary is so good!
THEY ACTUALLY HAVE TALENTED MAP MAKERS!
Seriously, I dunno how they managed to make it so every level is so diverse. The game is fairly slow paced with some insanely fast moments where the monsters just don't quit, but you still get a good view of the world.
I am the definition of your defeat.
