All of these recent studio closures from Microsoft are not a good sign. I really hope they can get their shit together because I don't want Sony to have a monopoly on the console market.

Game budgets for AAA games are really starting to hurt the gaming industry. One failed game can sink a studio, especially if it's the only game they've been working on for years. I'd like to see studios focus on more frequent AA releases that don't need to sell 10 million copes to break even. Not every game needs to be an epic 100 hour long open world game or a looter shooter. Start focusing on making games fun again.

I'm about 1/3 through GTA 5 and while the gameplay and graphics are far better than GTA 4, I thought the characters and world were more interesting in 4. I'll see if that changes as the story progresses.

I finally beat GTA 4 last night, although my son did have to help me with one of the missions. I may sound like a broken record, but the lack of checkpoints prevented this game from being a 9 or 10 out of 10.

It's been almost 14 years to the month that I originally planned to beat this game. The first time was after beating the original RDR in June of 2010.

I'm on mission 72 of 88 and my biggest complaint has to be the complete lack of checkpoints, especially in longer missions.

Shitty camera and controls are GTA's DNA, the bad driving and shooting are bonus content

I'm about halfway through GTA 4 (I'm amazed at how many 360 era games I'm playing and completing this generation) after taking a little break after Mirage. My major complaints about the game are the controls and shitty camera. I spend more time manually adjusting the camera than anything else. I wouldn't mind some checkpoints in the longer missions too. Other than those complaints, I'm enjoying it.

I ended up buying Fallout 3 and New Vegas since they were so cheap and I know my son will play them for sure.

Quote from: Brad Company on April 15, 2024 @ 06:38:03 PMYou might like it, it's a bit more shooter than RPG. 60fps will do wonders. I wouldn't bother with 76 unless you're comfortable with other players in your world.
I agree. Everything I've read about Fallout 4 made me think I'd like that one. I was disappointed to find out that Fallout 76 is basically a live service game, but I can't complain since it was free.
