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 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 almost done with GTA 5 and will probably finish it either tonight or tomorrow. I did not see the plot twist towards the end coming and think it added a lot to the story. I guess I'll see how it plays out once I'm done.

I finished the GTA 5 main story last night and will probably do some side missions over the weekend. I ended up liking the story more than I expected. It had a sort of "Ocean's Eleven" heist vide to it. I wasn't expecting Franklin to be my favorite character and enjoyed the game the most during the parts when Travis wasn't around. Travis seems to be a popular character among the GTA community, but I found him to be a bit much most of the time.

Both of my sons kept saying how I'm like Michael (still living in the 80's), so now I started calling my older son, whose name is James, Jizzle. James "Jizzle" De Santos provided a ton of comedy relief in the game and is the perfect stereotypical millennial.

I'd give the game an 8.5 out of 10 and would definitely play it again since it only clocked in at 22 hours for me.

I just completed one of the oldest titles in my backlog - Bioshock. This was the first game I ever saw on an Xbox 360 when someone I used to work with brought their Xbox 360 into work back when it first released. I was always fascinated by the location and the opening hooked me. I'm glad to have finally played it.

I'm considering Forza Motorsport now that it's 50% off. I think most of the major issues have been fixed.

Forza was never as bad as it was made out to be. It's a good game, and makes a nice companion for Horizon 5. I bought the 360 versions of the Bioshock games when they were dirt cheap. I'll play those instead of the remasters if I return to Rapture.

Jason

Just out of curiosity, why do you prefer the originals to the remasters?

Brad Company

Arkham and Bioshock games have wierd graphical glitches and don't offer much in the way of performance upgrades. The Mass Effect remaster is done right.

Jason

My sons and I like the original Arkham games more too. I'm not even sure why they remastered them since they left the frame rate at 30. I didn't realize the Bioshock remasters had issues too. Do the originals run at 60fps? They're not on the FPS Boost list provided by Microsoft.

You can choose to unlock the framerate and get 60fps on Series X.

Thanks. I'll probably grab the first one on sale to check it out. I'm sure my son would love to play through it again.
