Angry Centaur was interesting--I heard "12-hour campaign" and massively cringed. The graphics and game modes looked like Half-Life 2 meets Unreal tournament(s) meets Doom3 meets Borderlands (all those cartoon colors) meets a couple of other notable games of the past few years. I also found it somewhat amusing that the guy was using both a PC with a 2080ti in it and an xBox running at a scaled up fake 4k...I couldn't help wondering what his review would have been like had he been confined to the console only--as very few people will own a $1400 3d card in a $4k computer and an comparatively very inexpensive xBox. (What would be the point?) Ah, well, I don't like mindless shooters, anyway, so I'll pass, and with gusto! Console fare just does nothing for me at all--never has. Give me Witcher 3 and presumably Cyberpunk 2077 all day long. Now those are games worthy of the appellation! This looks like penny arcade fare with delusions of grandeur...;)
Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk were/will be released day and date on consoles, with feature parity in all but rendering and and control input. They are as at least as much console games as Gears. I also own a PC and multiple consoles. There are benifits to such depending on what your friends and family use for multiplayer and how broad your tastes in games are.
