Vampyr was way better than Dark and BloodLust Shadowhunter.

BloodLust Shadowhunter is a bizarre puzzle game and dungeon crawler with a few RPG elements. I never even finished it, I didn't really enjoy it.

Dark was repetitive and makes you feel extremely weak against pretty much all human enemies though some of the plot elements are interesting; you can take less bullets than bread. I finished it but have no real intent to play it again.

Vampyr was disappointing in some areas but was ultimately better than both.

Vampyr is still on my list. I watched a playthrough and really liked th emood and the gameplay.

Hipster in 1917?   I'm playing it now.  Mood is excellent but the controls are not at all intuitive probably due to being ported to PC.  Very classic vampire not in a fantasy world so, that is good (to some, at least :)  ). 

Edit:  after opening the link, with the author pictured with her very pale skin, I have to wonder if SHE is a vampire herself  :)

The main character isn't only looking like a hipster, he is also a political correct modern guy, who doesn't fit at all into the time. Which kills the mood for me right from the start!

Some morality is to be expected. He's supposed to be a doctor right ?

Yeah, but he kills everyone left and right on the streets and then sweet-talks as if nothing has happened in the clinic. Also how come during combat he can feed without killing but otherwise he can't? I've seldom seen a more obviously stupid gameplay restriction!

Yeah, Bloodlines is in the first place as it should. But TWO hidden items "games"?! Something is not right about this site....

There're a few things that I hate in games, vampyr has most of them.
First, the world scales with you, if you complete side quests, all the world congratules you, because ALL people level up.
Second if you do a full run of ¿12hours?, you spend at least 8, killing random mobs in the alleys. (mobs of your level of course, because they scale)

This game only deserves 10 position for me...

Is that player decision or scripted, that he kills a lot of people on the street? I would like to have the option to play good or evil (including feed kills - like in VTMB). I haven't watched too much of the game play to not spoil storyline outcomes, only the first or so hour.
Also I have to agree about applying nowadays morality to a historical (although ficitional) game. I think, they should stay true to the tune of that time periode. But still, I might try Vampire out

Not really. Once you are out in the open you are being attacked all the time...

I haven't finished a play-through yet but, from what I have read, while Wesp5 is correct from what I've seen so far, you can kill or not kill people you can interact with and that affects the ending in essence, like Bloodlines where anyone that attacks you can be killed without humanity loss).  The choice is, kill and level up, or don't kill and have a more difficult time but get the "good" ending. 

As far as hipster, I'm not up on the British scene so all I know about them is from the Who's Quadrophenia (sp?).   The modster/hipster war (1960s?) or whatever.  His hair style seemed to fit with the times but, well, I'm certainly no expert.  Victorian England did have a high level of relative morality I believe, at least in polite company.  Now I'll have to look at old photos on the net from the era.  Should be interesting (but not fascinating :) ).

I agree about not being able to feed without killing though surely a mass murderer who can pretend not to be one in such an effortless way is a fine enough model for a vampire plus seems to put a neat reflection on 'polite society' don't you think?
