That GPU comparison makes me think of an idea

I'd love to see something like:

- top 3 AMD CPUs from 2012
- top 3 Intel CPUs from 2012
- mix in the same few video cards and benchmark 2012s major games on those rigs. Say 1080p since it was common then.

Then go a cpu and/or a GPU generation up, and do it again with the relevant new games. See if collectively we're getting more FPS with games as time goes on.

If in 2012 I was getting 80FPS on average across 6 similar games with "rig X" and I build a new version of "rig X" in 2020, I want to see 90+ FPS to make me happy about performance progress in my hobby.

Does any of this make any sense?

I think what they are doing is awesome, and I hope it pans out.

What's the alternative, I get to point and laugh and be right and win...what exactly? I'd rather this game start something new than to flop.

It probably has the most immediate positive feedback system, and the game plays "clean", I just got bored of it after all these years.

Of course there are some things that bugged me, like Rein being a less than useful tank who has a ultimate that gets interrupted far too often. Still underpowered or not correctly built heroes, with so many shields in the game, the lack of a shieldbuster hero (no, junkrat doesnt count, I mean a real shield buster or someone that makes tanks have to move).

Please be more free and open compared to Outer Worlds, no Fed Ex quests nonstop, and a lot less dialogue!

I rather enjoyed it, and I even downloaded a trainer for it, to unlock a number of items/upgrades so I could experience all the gear early on. I like it.It scratched the "hide, shoot, destroy" itch for me.

He knowingly cheated and then posted a video of it?
Ahh, okay dumbass.

Also - if he was playing with a cheat enabled, and he wasnt getting caught before, what's that tell you about the game overall?

If the game had a lower TTK and a Rush mode, it's all we'd play.

They finally made a larger-scaled game, but it still plays like CoD arcade console boy bullshit shooter.. so camp, CAMP CAMP!

I enjoyed this game playing co-op with friends, but after we finished the main mission, I was left with what looked like a huge grind to get gear that was REQUIRED to get to the next content (I think I have that right).
Grinding the same mobs over and over to get leveled up gear didnt sit well with me. I wanted to play the next content, not get locked behind some artificial gate :/

I got Gears with the pass, which I believe makes me not count against this metric, right?

There has to be a lot of us who did this.

btw- I realized I hate cover shooters.

this game sure did take a nosedive in terms of hearing about it everywhere I went for PC gaming info.

the hackers killed it for me early on, and the imbalanced characters.
