It has most definitely fallen to the wayside to Sony and Nintendo with respect to first-party games.

I think it depends on a lot on the franchise your dealing with, and style of original game, like if RPG elements "make sense" in it.
I would not want RPG elements in DOOM for example, or in Cvilization games, however I like how they (arguably) added rpg elements to racing games when Gran Turismo launched way back when.
Speaking of RPG's, did anyone here ever play the turn-based Sonic the Hedgehog rpg on the DS? Somehow by some miracle it was not only not a travesty but actually kind of a fun little game. (don't know why i mentioned)
So how many games does it take for you to start considering buying a system/upgrading your PC?
For me it seems to be about 3-5 but I have to really, really want them.
For PS4 it was when i saw Bloodborne, GoW3 remastered and TLOU remastered were incoming (i never owned a PS3)
For PC upgrade it was when I saw Civ VI, Total War: Warhammer 2, and Grim Dawn (this could maybe be considered a toaster game, not sure)
My favorite is and probably always will be SMWorld, but SM64 was AMAZING when it launched I remember seeing it for the first time in our local Blockbuster Video (aged myself there), however when I demo'ed Odyssey it did put a genuine smile on my face.
I'm just saying that im really glad that Nintendo is still putting out great Mario games.
Galaxy 2 was great, it seemed like literally every stage had a different mechanic to it.
I had a lot of fun with the OG Box, maybe it is the best of them, need more time for Xbox One to run it's course but the OG was defintely the most innovative, it had a Hard Drive!
People that consistently get called out for bullshit or accused of having multiple alternate accounts should be made to persuaded their facebook/instagram/social media pages, this would solve the situation pertaining to alts when you post your real self.
Conversely, one who is tired of being labled as alt could willing share their social media info.
Of course the people who are actually hiding behind alt accounts are to chicken shit to show themselves.
I never thought of Gears series as movie games (but i guess i can see the argument), always thought Gears was 3rd person shooter.
No one knows anything of substance about Death Stranding so it's too early to tell.
Back to topic.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider on X1X looks better than God of War on PS4. I own and play both.
You have to at least beat 2nd place for graphics until you can go after no. 1 (PC).
