Mafia III sucked...Could not get into it at all...
Same. At first when I picked it up I thought everyone was wrong about it. The graphics looked great. The animation was dope and the shooting mechanics were generally really well done.
It's just missing something that grabs you. Maybe it was the location or something that I couldn't get into much at all.

Yeah, not sure why games like this are still being made. I mean, I do respect id software for their contributions over the years, but really, who are they catering towards, 60+ year olds who can't tolerate change?

I almost fell asleep watching a stream of it today.
Its just a first person platformer now (for blind people, since all possible ways are marked with different colors). Most of the time youre just looking for secrets for pointless easter eggs. The rest is so brainless and repetitive, it looks like a $0.99 DLC for the last one.
Even the "music" is extremely annoying now.

Yeah, but now with Mike Pence in charge, we're gonna kick coronavirus into Mexico, and we'll make them pay for it!

From NPR 2 days ago....
"So far this season we've had between 30 and 40 million illnesses in the United States," Martin says. Of that number, about half were ill enough to seek medical care, and between 300,000 to 500,000 people required hospitalization.
The CDC estimates that there have been 20,000 to 40,000 deaths in the United States so far this year.
Just for comparison, that's a thousand times more deaths in the United States than have been blamed on the coronavirus so far."
At this no one bats an eye but everyone's freaking out over C19? Yeah. Sure. Ok.
I have a hard time believing that you are serious here, but on the off-chance that you are...
The issue is not with "how many people are currently infected". Of course that's considerably lower than seasonal colds/flus that have been around for years. The issues are how fast this spreads, and how high the mortality rate is. Normal flus have a mortality rate of around 0.1%. Covid-19 has a mortality rate somewhere in the 3-5% rate. Should we get the 30 to 40 million people infected that you quote from the seasonal illness, we would expect between 900,000 to 1,400,000 million deaths. That is a *lot* more serious than the 20-40K deaths from flus.
