Nba 2k16 is a decent free game, but after waiting for it to download, the game is a slow coach to install

NBA are you fucking kidding me? Sports games are worth like £1 a couple of months after launch with how fast they depreciate.

Not even worth the fucking bandwidth.

@dexda: NBA 2K16 is awesome !!

@ltjohnnyrico: Pahaha, good one. Basketball is fucking torture to watch in real life let alone playing a fucking game of it.

At least other sports are bearable in the first place.

@dexda: Basketball is end to end making it one of the better sports to watch .. and the Game 2k16 is awesome .. dont know many people that have played it and thought otherwise.

@ltjohnnyrico: I don't know many people who have played it AT ALL.

Then again no one watches Basketball where I am. Barely even considered a sport.

Kind of says a lot about sport. Is one of the better ones to watch and is still like watching paint dry.

@johnnyboy787: You mean first was indies, now it's a bunch of AAA's and everyone still sad

@rosinmonkekyx17: A bunch of AAA's?

NBA2K16 - Limited audience sports title whose online will likely shut down next year.

Gone Home - Walking simulator indie emo crap.

Echochrome - Poorly received indie puzzle game port from PSP.

Siren: Bloodcurse - Poorly received episodic survival horror with an extremely limited audience.

Little Deviants - Gimmicky launch title for Vita, often considered one of the worst games on the platform.

God of War: Chains of Olympus - A freaking PSP game from 2008.

You could at best argue there are two AAA games and while one was well received and is a solid title, it's 8 years old and there was PS3 HD remaster of it, as well as for Ghost of Sparta on PS3 which was last month's free 'vita' game.

This is easily the worst month for PS+ both for breadth of audience and actual quality of its content. A lot of people will be excited for NBA2k16 and that's great for them but honestly, if it weren't for the friends I play some multiplayer with I'd be on the fence about keeping PS+ after the last several months.

@Xylymphydyte: You forgot previous lineups

Zombi and Tropico are also AAA's...

So NBA2K is to a limited audience? Same could be said about FPS games, they are "limited" to a specific audience

You obviously have never played Gone Home so please, be quiet

Hell, I doubt you've played any of these yet you've somehow formulated an opinion on the game already...

@rosinmonkekyx17: Zombi was a WiiU port, extremely limited audience as a third rate survival horror with its ONE AND ONLY GIMMICK removed for the port. Tropico is a strategy game, even more limited audience than NBA2k16. Sports games do have a wide audience but the people who play them tend to basically ONLY play them. You'll notice that most people talking about downloading the game comment on how they used to own it but traded it in for some other sports game so it's just a bonus to them.

Also, you haven't played Gone Home either, it's not a game.

@Xylymphydyte: I have played Gone Home...

Easily one of the best games out there, there's a unique physiological twist to it

Also, sports games are just as limited as any other so stop saying they're limited

For example:

FPS games do have a wide audience but the people who play them tend to basically ONLY play them

@rosinmonkekyx17: Well I'd written up a grand ole reply showing sales between platforms and various games proving everything you said wrong then freaking Gamespot somehow managed to crash JUST this tab, and I really can't be bothered to go hunt down the links and numbers again.

Suffice it to say you've got it almost entirely backwards, FPS gamers tend to be ones who play a wide variety of things while sports gamers tend to ONLY play sports games, and usually ONLY their preferred sport. There are exceptions to every rule but games like Madden and NB2kXX are a big deal because they're system movers, there are people who will buy a console for JUST that series.

Also, Gone Home is objectively one of the worst games out there, its sales numbers haven't hardly registered and the only people endlessly defending it are doing so with a socio-political agenda. The game has no gameplay, it has no objectives, no mechanics, nothing to make it a game. And no one cares your sister's a lesbian, that's not a twist unless you belong to some ultra-religious commune or something.

@Xylymphydyte: Is that why Gone Home has an amazing rating? (9.5/10 IGN)

Please do some research next time, and now you're assuming FPS players play a VARIETY of things

Great job mate

You've successfully failed to defend your point and make a fool of yourself

@Xylymphydyte: I hope you know what a bait is

If you want, I can also cite GS and Metacritic's

Metacritic: 85%

GameSpot: 9.5

Hell, I'll even put in PS store

PS store: 4.1/5

@rosinmonkekyx17: The amusing thing there is that the PS Store score was something like 4.8 a few days ago. It's 4.0 now. I expect that to continue to fall rapidly. Previously only the pretentious snobs who are into games in a film-school-hipster way were willing to pay money for Gone Home and rate it.

You also forgot to mention user scores, no one cares what the critics think, they're a bunch of hacks anyway.

Metacritic PC edition: 5.4/10

Metacritic Console Edition PS4: 3.9/10

Metacritic Console Edition Xbox One: 3.8/10

Hell, over on GameFAQs the user rating is sitting at 2.7/5 on PS4.

The vast majority of gamers simply aren't interested in it, and that's the point I was making in the first place. Gone Home is indie trash no one who plays games for gameplay cares about, and the sports fans interested in NBA2k16 already own it or used to own it.

Just because a bunch of black plastic rimmed glasses wearing hipster faux-hawks at SoCal based games sites like it doesn't mean literally ANYONE else likes it.

@Xylymphydyte: God you are stupid and still will not accept it...

Still can't defend FPS gamers are limited just as sports?

Do us all a favor and cancel your PS+ subscription please, we have enough of you ungrateful complainers around here

@rosinmonkekyx17: I hate to say it, but I gotta: u mad?

You're moving the goal post and changing the argument, this has nothing to do with FPS games, it was about the existing PS+ games being poor choices to benefit a large portion of the PS+ membership, I think I proved quite succinctly that it doesn't. I shouldn't have run with the change of subject earlier.

You're also putting a lot of thoughts in my head. Yes, I think Gone Home is trash, I have no problem with NBA2k16, it's clearly a high quality title but the audience is dramatically limited, it just LOOKS like a good choice because it's a big name, but in reality, as I outlined, most people who had any interest in the game have already or currently own it.

Additionally, I'm not personally a sports game fan, so why should I be grateful for things I don't like?

What's wrong with having opinions on a service? If you don't like what the service does you should say so, and when you like what the service does you should also say so. How is it supposed to improve otherwise?

@Xylymphydyte: There's a difference between being mad and being stunned by how poorly defended your point is

For your second paragraph, if you read, they were examples that I used to compare sports games to based on limited audiences. Also, you sound ungrateful for free games and if you don't think they're free, you obviously can't think outside the box

Your third paragraph repeats the exact same thing, sports games are limited even though they are just as limited as FPS

Your fourth paragraph implied bias

Your last paragraph is meaningless because it's the internet

@rosinmonkekyx17: it's always something. I can't complain though. I traded my copy of 2k16 to gamestop sunday and received $16 store credit which I put towards Doom so this freebie basically put money back into my pocket.
