If Siege is anything to go by, Rainbow Six Quarantine will probably be up there in terms of Commercial success, if not Critical.
I think the gunplay of Cyberpunk 2077 is what's going to let it down as a total package, in the same way that the combat in Witcher 3 lets people down. Action is not CD Project's strong suit. It'll be a great game, one of the best in many years, but it'll be a poor FPS.
We still have no idea what Halo Infinite actually is, but I have high hopes for it. Hopefully it can revolutionise the FPS genre in the same way Combat Evolved did all those years ago.
Hit Credits. This thread is my first time looking at any takes at all.
This is probably my favourite game of the generation, overtaking HITMAN 2016.
What a video game.
I called the identity of Unger's son literally as soon as Sam saw the first memory.
May as well post in here then as it turns out it’s ineligible.
Beat Saber on Steam is an amazing VR game. They could have easily thrown together a quick final package and then made a tonne of money through music packs. They’re still doing music packs, but they’re also regularly updating the game with new features like the 360 degree levels that came out a few weeks ago, adding a whole new level of challenge.
And, this is all without mentioning the built on mod support. Custom Sabers, Custom Songs. You can never run out of content.
I picked up a Rift S on Black Friday and have been loving my time in VR land so far. I’ve played a little Fallout 4 VR just to see what’s it’s like. It’s a little clunky. But not played enough to know for certain.
I’ve played mainly Standing experiences, thanks to the VR Essentials pack on Steam.
Superhot VR was incredible. So much fun. Really had to work hard for some of those wins towards the end.
Beat Saber. No introduction needed. What a great rhythm game. There’s a few stipulations in the campaign that I really don’t like, like “minimum arm movement”, but it’s nice that the game doesn’t lock any of the game behind progression in the campaign. You can play all songs on all difficulties with all modifiers right from the beginning.
Pistol Whip is super fun. It’s a mix of Superhot VR and Beat Saber, made by the people that made Call of Starseed, which is known for its high production value. I’ve had to work harder in this game than any game so far but it’s really rewarding. Probably makes you feel more like John Wick than a John Wick simulator could.
I also tried Sariento VR for all of 15 minutes. Not a great first experience. I might pick it back up out of curiosity, but certainly wouldn’t consider it an Essential.
Ended up playing a lot less games last year due to having less free time. I'm currently working my way through a lot of games including a lot of RPGs. I desperately need some quick wins. Maybe I should finally play Edith Finch... https://howlongtobeat.com/user?n=Hazz3r&s=games&playing=1
