Why do most people still read these kind of user (scores) and news site reviews? That’s like so 2012. Over the past 8 years or so, the best way to decide if a game is right for you, is to follow a couple youtubers who like the same kind of games that you do. Scores mean nothing these days. Just let the youtuber demonstrate the game mechanics and talk about the pros and cons. Most can do this without spoilers. I really don’t understand why this scoring thing is still relevant. It just seems that it’s a platform to complain or praise, and that’s about it. Pointless.
Yep. Someone could make a great game, which you have absolutely no interest in. YouTube Let's Plays are pretty much the ultimate review for me. I want to see actual game play and how the game interface operates.

Yeah, that’s a good channel. I also like Worth a Buy. Mack is funny as hell and probably one of the most honest game reviewers out there. He definitely likes the same games that I do. It’s probably a generation thing.

Far Cry 5 was very dull. However, New Dawn was awesome. It's the only Far Cry game I've beaten aside from the very original Far Cry. I think the fact that it actually made Montana fun with all the new colors and gave me a Mad Max vibe really stuck with me. The upgrade system was fun and just everything was more enjoyable than Far Cry 5. Not taking itself as serious was probably the best part. The twins... lol. They were so bad it was good!

I totally agree with this. Aside from the cheesy story and not-so-great voice acting, the progression system was much better, and the game was long enough to feel you got your money's worth, and short enough to actually finish before it got too tedious (like many open-world games with a limited gameplay loop, e.g. Assassin's Creed: Odyssey... way too long for what you do).

Those loot barrels were definitely a chore in W3. I'm pretty sure I gave up on that and focused on quests to finish the game, but it was a way to least get me to explore and look the environment design that I would have otherwise missed.

Yeah, I was going to say that I stopped looting early on and just played the game. Looting barrels/crates is a really old game mechanism that I wish would just die. I'm not a f'n hobo, I'm an elite warrior!

I recently replayed FC4 and then New Dawn, the smaller one set after FC5. Five is mostly good, except when you're forced into the story missions unexpectedly. I also love FC Primal, which a lot of people don't. If you've liked any of the others in the series and have not played 5, this is a good opportunity to see if it fits you.

I actually liked New Dawn better than FC5. I think the progression system was much better.

Whether VG 24/7 blew it out of proportion or not, we all know what the youtube community is like. Those anonymous dickheads would never start their own channel and upload videos of themselves because they know they wouldn’t be able to handle one negative comment, never mind several per day like most youtubers. I praise all who put up entertaining and/or useful videos on a daily basis. Many don’t make a dime.

Don’t they have like 2 games in development? One being a point release and another being a stripped down mobile game with tired old genre features?

WoW Shadowlands
Overwatch 2
Diablo 4
That mobile game(s)

At least 4 out of Blizzard that we know about.

Some expansion for a 16 year old game
Overwatch 1.5
Diablo 4 Mobile ported to consoles and pc at some point

When's that thing come out? The holidays? That thing will be outdated before they get back in stock.

Exactly. New gen console graphics will seem better/faster than current pcs for about -3 months prior to release

I'll definitely snag this one. Hats off to devs who actually finish an Early Access with a decent game. Not to mention it being developed with co-op in mind from the ground up!

Well, I think every decade needs a game that's in development for way too long for us to complain about.

Duke Nukem Forever -> Start Citizen -> The Elder Scrolls VI

3 games, 30 years of complaining

KC is excellent. Even though the combat system wasn't great I like that they tried something different.

I don't really mind the combat system. They kind of want you to feel like you suck early on to encourage you to train more. That's what makes the character progression awesome! It sort of reminds me of Gothic in that sense. I do notice a tiny bit of stutter when combat starts, so my opponent will sometimes get the first blow in if I'm caught off guard

a bit off topic, I just started playing Kingdom Come: Deliverance which I got on EGS for free. Wow! What an amazing game so far! I had no idea. I think I avoided the game when it first came out because of all the mixed reviews (performance issues, bugs, etc), but so far, I've had no issues. This is the way a role-playing game should be! And it's nice that it's not based on fantasy literature for a change
