    Just spent more than 200 hours in Botw and still haven't finished the game, and despite the problems like weapons breaking, the world that sometimes feels empty, too many shrines and lack of dungeons, Bosses with uncreative designs and not-so-great English voice acting, I think the game is amazing. The graphics, music, game, open-world gameplay, details in physics and environment, stunning and beautiful world design, memorable characters and many, many more. I think the game is better OpenWorld game than Skyrim in my opinion. At least in this game, you can climb pretty much every mountain, unlike Todd Howard's sweet little lies...

    Welp I bought a PS4 Pro. Bought it with Horizon and Bloodborne. What else should I buy for it? (Nothing I can get on PC tho).

    I also got that last one. I already have Shadow of the Collosus for the PS3.
    I'll give God of War some consideration.

    Persona 5, but haven't you played it already?

    Yup, on PS3. Are there any other good JRPGs on the PS4?

    Make sure you get the DLC for Bloodborne. Vanilla is great, but the DLC really adds another layer to it.
    GoW is a must-have. That game is near perfect.

    If you like horror, check out Until Dawn.

    The Last of Us maybe?

    Both of these are great picks.

    Shadow of the Colossus is amazing albeit short. I remember when I first got it for PS2. Apparently, Mario 64 convinced Gabe Newell that games were art and Doom convinced him they were the future of entertainment.

    Shadow of the Colossus to me was the first game I played and when I finished I thought, "That was art." Design by subtraction alongside the themes and how they are translated into the game. I have yet to play Ico at all but I also am a fan of The Last Guardian for similar reasons as SotC.

    I've never played Ico but I plan on getting The Last Guardian. And yes, SotC is art. Fantastic game.

    Finished the battle pass for PUBG so i will go on a long break from that game.
    After that i went to play far cry primal and 100% it besides some achievements and it was "ok".. That's about it. Got super repetetive in the end due to the limmit of weapons and suchs.
    My next stop will either be Resident Evil 0 since i never finished it back in the game cube days or Wolfenstein 2 the new colossus wich i found dirt cheap with all expansions yesterday.

    Wait....Persona 5 was on PS3? How did I miss that? Maybe my mind said "Wait for PS4 version..."

    Anyway try Red Dead 2. Maybe God of War.

    Try the old DragonBall RPG's on SNES. You can get translation patches.

    *Red dead 3
    The Spider-man game is the best Arkham game since city. Also the god of war games are pretty great. Also also the Yakuza games.

    We went over this. That was a totally different series. If I say Red Dead 3 most people on this site would not know what the fuck I was talking about.

    https://reddead.fandom.com/wiki/Red_Dead_Revolver

    Capcom developed it then Rockstar picked it up. Probably why it was not open world. Son I owned it when it came out. I bought GTA 1 when you were still a little sperm in a nut sack.

    GTA 1 is in a separate continuity from GTA III and GTA IV was yet another continuity reboot. Still all the same series. So red dead redemption ii is till the third red dead game. If you're going to just say red dead without the game's subtitle then it is properly red dead 3.

    It's pretty important for Graves to be right about the most pedantic shit nobody cares about.

    Pathfinder: Kingmaker
    I'm surprised how easily this game sucked me in, haven't had such fun with any Kickstarter funded game in a long time. Also runs pretty smoothly on my low-end machine. Folks on the interwebz are referring to huge amount of bugs in late game, so far so good for my lvl 8 group though.

    After thinking about this matter longer much than I should have (honestly, it should have taken much less time and energy), I decided to budge to my retrogaming interest and purchased a ZX Spectrum emulator so that I could play a couple of homebrew games from 2018 and 2019

    Aliens Neoplasma



    An Aliens themed action exploration game that takes its inspiration from Alien 3 on the Sega 16 bit and Super Ninteno.


    Dead Zone



    An arcade game that feels like a cross between Space Invaders and Operation Wolf.


    Reason why I found it so difficult to make a decision was because I am worried that with yet another emulator (I already have a Sega one, Nintendo ones, Commodore 64, and of course Dosbox) that I will spend even more time behind my computer when I really want to spend less time behind it.

    It does not matter Graves. The motherfucking story has nothing to do with the series. Capcom developed it. GTA Vice City is GTA 4 then.

    The pedantry is strong with this one.

    I'm playing Europa Universalis IV at the moment. I'm having a run with Avaria (a National in the Caucasus). I've managed to break free from o erlord Gazikumuh and now I'm allied to the Ottomans.
