This isn’t really accurate. I beat Uncharted 2 in less than 24h and I’ve played every Soul’s-borne game, not 3 of 4.
Regardless, fun to look back. My roommate is single handedly the one who made October 2018 my most played month.

Been riding my whole life, cannot go wrong with a Giant bike. You'll never go back to Wal-Mart / CCM / Dark Horse / Mongoose bikes ever again. The extra you pay is because you're paying for North American / European made parts and metals. You'll start to notice immediately that the drive-train makes a world of difference and you won't be working as hard up hills and such. Likely a much sturdier yet lighter bike. Assuming you don't gain weight, don't slam it around, bring it in every year or so, and clean it up when it gets muddy, this bike will last you 20+ years.
I currently ride a Trek Dual Sport 3 but if I ever move out of the city, I'll be getting a serious mountain bike.
I know absolutely nothing other than rudimentary business principles but if a PS5 has to be sold at $470 USD just to break even, I can’t even imagine the Canadian Dollar cost. I certainly wouldn’t be buying this year one.
I’d rather they delay or take a hit on it like the PS3 but I know taking a price hit isn’t a viable long term solution. I definitely don’t want features stripped from the PS5 to keep costs low. A mirrorless camera built into the PS5 getting stripped out is essentially stripping out features from games that we’ll have to re-buy later, perhaps with PS VR.
Honestly, I might save a ton of money and go all out with the PS5 / VR / Race wheel when GT7 comes out in a few years. Nothing in me wants to spend $550 + tax just to play a looter game like Godfall.
It’s funny cause Zombies is by and large my least favourite thing about COD. They didn’t omit Zombies but that mode is only ever in Black Ops games. This isn’t reflective of gameplay quality, but Zombies really helped push Treyarch into absolute circus territory with the COD series and I really can’t stand their goofy middle schoolers warped view of ‘cool’ aesthetics that they put forward in games like Black Ops.
I found that Infinity Ward puts the budget on screen this year where everything looks and plays great whereas Black Ops just plays great.
To make an analogy, Infinity Ward COD games are Rocky 1-2. Treyarch COD games are Rocky 4. Both are good in their own right but one is clearly crazy.
Ya'll are lame for not including Modern Warfare on your lists at least somewhere. This is some of the best FPS single player ever, some of the most fun COD multiplayer in years, all time great presentation including audio effects that could give you PTSD and all time great animation.
We're talking some of the best animation seen in video games here.
TOW is a really good game that pushes the RPG genre by allowing an omni-directional ability to do and discuss anything with any character and the game will adapt around it. The only other game with the level of freedom would be Divinity II but not even that game has all of the writing to match your limitless freedom.
TOW is held back by smaller worlds that get a bit fetch questy and don't offer compelling reasons to explore every nook. This is especially true because looting just isn't immersive like, say, Fallout or TES. TOW uses Bioshock-style quick looting which sort of makes this game feel just as much of a shooter as it is an RPG. In my opinion, its for worse.
I respect the fact that they're redesigning the game but I feel for somebody having to work on this thing from like 2016 until today. I can only imagine how boring it must be at this point.
Can't forget about the market too. By the time Anthem is re-designed, there will be so many brand new releases in the same / similar market: Cyberpunk 2020, Vampire the Masquerade 2, Godfall, Call of Duty 2020, Torchlight 2020.
Not that I think newer = better but I don't see why somebody wouldn't choose to play a brand new loot game like Godfall on PS5 and PC instead of Anthem again. Hell, I don't even like loot games but that leaked footage of Godfall was pretty decent and had nice crispy graphics.
Control was almost an HM from me but there was so much janky bullshit in the PS4 version that I found it inexcusable. There is a lot to like in Control but also a lot of frustrating things. All the games I voted for are all GOTY material and I don’t feel as though Control was pushing boundaries in any way.
It’s the ultimate 7/10. Fun but also kinda generic at the same time.
