Understandable. Felt good to go on the offense against the guy.

Anyway, don't listen to CJ_Parker. He probably didn't even play the game.

PREY is definitely the GOTY for me. Can't imagine another game coming out this year I'll enjoy more.

Yeah. Right. Wasn't MEA your "OMG GOTY" last month? What will it be next month then? Or in October? Come on. It's easy to tell you are one of those sheeple for whom the latest AAA hype is always "GOTY" by default just because OMGTHEHYPEISSOSTRONG.

Of course I have played Prey. It's the first game in years I have bought on release cuz CDKeys had it for 30 instead of 60. And what do I get as a reward? Game-breaking bugs left, right and center.
Mind you, not personally yet (a few hours in and mostly bug-free) but I don't wanna risk playing on cuz it's not cool to lose your save 20 hours in or so.

As I said, just check the Steam forums. It's there for everyone to see how buggy and glitchy this game is and how many people are complaining about not being able to load a save without crashing or not being able to complete quests or get achievements etc.
Just check it out and go through the first five pages or so. I'm not making this up.

Well, and the consolitis is also there for everyone to see in plain sight. This game has the shittiest inventory handling I have seen in a long time, e.g. when you move stuff from your inventory to your office safe. This was clearly made with controllers and sticks in mind.
Or the weapon wheel... as soon as you touch your mouse wheel, up pops the console-friendly wheel instead of simply switching to the next weapon. Or how you need to hold down keys for many simple (inter)actions which was clearly made for triggers on controllers, too.

The only chance this game is GOTY is if the year continues as shitty as it has started. But you are sounding more like a total hype victim who switches his GOTY every month for the next flavor of the month hype.
Realistically, sans hype, this game has the chance to become a typical decent 8/10 kind of game after a couple of patches. Until then it can not even be rated.
No one deserves to lose their valuable time and progress through game-breaking glitches. As long as there is a substantial risk of this happening, and there absolutely is as proven by many forums posts, this is the Shit of the Year and not the Game of the Year.

Too bad Prey didn't make it to number 1, the game definitely deserves the top spot.

No, it doesn't.

- Shitty graphics
- Shitty console UI
- General shitty consolitis
- Buggy as fuck to the point several people's saves got corrupted so bad they could not continue playing (check Steam forums). I have also quit for now cuz I don't wanna end up with a broken save 20 hours in like quite a few folks. There are enough reports to not chalk it off as a rare occurrence.

There's also some good shit, of course, but the bad shit far outweighs the good shit so until it is hopefully fixed one day soon it does not deserve the top spot. Maybe after the patches. We'll have to wait'n'see whether they can be bothered to fix their shit.

Also, they should release Prey 1 digitally. That would be nice.

If you still have your retail version then you can just enter the key and add it to Steam.

The funniest bit about Prey performance is how it is an AMD sponsored game but even the GTX 970 kicks the RX 480's ass to hell and back. LULZ.

Also, name a demo that lasted longer than 5 hours in the last 20 years.

Ummm... the Mass Effect Andromeda 10 hour free trial last month? OK. It required signing up for a free trial membership of Access but free is free and it was a very generous demo.

More free trials on Origin (that do NOT require also signing up for a free Access trial): Unravel (10 hours), Plants vs. Zombies (10 hours), The Sims 4 (two days, i.e. up to the theoretical maximum of 48h if you ovahdoze on caffeine), BF4 (sevens days = up to 168h including the SP campaign), SWBF (4 hours... OK, not quite 5h), Titanfall (two days = up to 48h), Dragon Age Inquisition (6 hours).

And if this shit ain't enough, you could exploit their Great Game Guarantee refund policy by playing a game for up to 23:59:59 hours. They have a much more generous policy than Steam with their measly 2 hours.

Well, finally Kxmode already mentioned free weekends on Steam. Those usually launch on Thursday at 10:00AM Pacific and last until Sunday.

Saying there haven't been 5h+ demos in the last 20 years is complete uneducated drivel.

I hope tons of people buy, and then refund on steam, and totally screw up their metrics for sales after this.

I wasn't too interested in this garbage game so far but ^that is exactly the plan now .

Yawn. Wake me up when they release the actual finished non-beta Warmaster Deathinitive or whatever complete version of the game instead of this early access garbage.

I got this a few weeks ago via regular Windows update already (guess I was in an early rollout wave).

As with the Anniversary Update this was a complete clusterfuck and stole over an hour of my valuable time until I had reverted all privacy settings back to stop fucking spying on me assholes and until I had uninstalled all unwanted apps that were once more dumped on my valuable SSD space without my consent (of course).

I'm WAY beyond the fuck Microsoft stage, man. I'm dreaming every night of becoming a giant turd monster and squatting over Redmond.

Serious word of advice here: If you value your privacy then make sure to go through ALL of your privacy related settings. ALL. OF. THEM. The sneaky Mickeysoft fuckers reverted settings in a totally random fashion.
Do not check just one page in privacy settings and think everything is OK or as it was. It isn't. Check everything. They've made it extra annoying hoping that people won't notice which settings they've changed. To make double sure, go through the entire settings pages, not just the privacy page.

The worst offender is Defender by the way (oh the irony). They turn on both, cloud-based protection and automatic sample submission by default.
These settings basically allow MS to access ANY and ALL of your files at their convenience under the pretense to check for viruses and malware. It's like sharing your HDD/SDD with the WAN, i.e. your data free for all to fuck with as they please.

And if you use custom settings for your nVidia driver then check the control panel. The update resets everything to default settings for some shitty reason (same with the anniversary update cuz it's apparently too hard for MS to code something that doesn't fuck up stuff left, right and center).

These guys probably made this whole game on the budget of what SC development costs for a day.

But... but... but... it's never been done befoaaaaarrrr and it's revolutionary and... and... immershun and fideliteh!!!11

As for this announcement they had me all the way up to...

The game is best played with a gamepad...


Definitely need to see 'overwhelmingly positive' on this after six months and a few hundred reviews or /pass cuz I'm not a console peasant. Never have been, never will be. Gamepad is a round 1 instant knock-out.

Oooh P.S.: Meanwhile at CIG, you can now earn STAR KITTEN (no fucking joke either) themed gear when referring the game to other people. L to the O to the L.

Games are getting more and more photo/movie realistic, but that doesn't help things when the gameplay is crap, does it?

That's true and most pretty modern games like MEA are complete fucking garbage but I would not even say that they look photo or movie realistic.

Frostshite, for example, has a very distinct artificial look&feel. It definitely looks very gamey and, if at all, maybe more movie-"real" (in SWBF thanks to photogrammetry) than photoreal or real-real.

I can't really think of a truly photo-realistic looking modern game. It almost seems to me that devs either try to avoid real settings or intentionally put that gamey/artsy look on them in order to avoid a too realistic depiction of violence.

Wonder no more.

Step 1) Go to Google (yeah it's still around after all these years)
Step 2) Enter "elex gameplay video"
Step 3) Switch to the video results and you should find about a couple hundred thousand gameplay videos

Here's a longer one for starters:

Garbage. If they make a game like this (immersive story-driven horror survival blahblah FPS like System-/BioShock) extra care should be taken that the UI is as unintrusive as possible. Here, the UI is extremely intrusive and you get pop-up text spam galore even when entering/changing areas and when a flea farts anywhere near you.
It also looks extremely sterile and totally unrealistic with its super-shiny clean look.

<$10 sale IF the (user) reviews are decent enough
