Pshhh, "no true gamer" has anything more going on 20 years later. School and schoolwork were mandatory for me back when this came out, now I have *more* time! #ForeverAloneAndSpottilyEmployed

Hell, it's been 20 years since I played this! Gonna install and play through it again, can't remember a damn thing about the single player so it should be all new to me again! I think I remember it was a VERY long game and the AI was actually pretty damn good too? You can even play bot matches and you'll see some flashes of how Unreal Tournament came to be.

I will need to win the lottery or something, to be able to quit my job and have enough time to play all of these various titles though.

I'm fairly sure I read that they had several 'packages' that gave extra stuff? Had those not gone on sale yet?
If not, fair enough, I was wrong.

CliffyB brought us the Unreal series, and for older gamers Jazz Jackrabbit. The guy didn't push mediocre shit. Unreal is one of my favorite games of all time.
The Gears of War games that he had influence over are very good titles, and to say otherwise is just to be a blind master race tool. You might not agree with his decision to abandon the platform, but his words aren't without merit -- DRM free games are the extreme exception nowadays and despite repeatedly bleating about DRM being the devil and to boycott companies that use it, Steam and other digital platforms have taken over.
And for those of you that mourn the single player experience? The decline there is also partly due to piracy (and is why always-on DRM is here to stay).
You can hate him all the same, but his resume stands as one of the strongest in the industry. Even Lawbreakers was a decent game, just not good enough to compete with Overwatch and a changing landscape of what the majority of gamers want.

Borderlands 3 will once again curb stomp this franchise.

i played a pre-release reviewer's build starting last month for the site I write for and after a 50 hour playthrough I only experienced a very minor bug with a NPC who was supposed to be "gone" suddenly appearing on my ship and bringing up old dialog and a CTD once while exiting the game. Nothing major. A few graphical glitches here and there but that's more of my fault for running year old nvidia drivers.
Overall, it's probably the most stable game they've launched. Which admittedly, doesn't mean much, but still.
