EA still making need for speed? especially after failure payback was??

What was wrong with payback? I get the loot boxes sucked, but at least it wasn't always online or just night racing. Its the only NFS on this gen of consoles that has legit single player that doesn't require online connection and actually has a compelling world. The other two nfs games are selling for $5 for a reason. They will die and be useless once EA cuts the server. Now is it as good as most wanted? Hell no, that was my favorite (ironically made by criterion) I also liked NFS shift. Last gen did have way better nfs games, imo.

The most disappointing sequel was Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness (PS2). Total glitch fest.

Agreed. I had high hopes for the game but it was horrible. It had worse jumping mechanics then any of the old ps1 games. Horrible game. They could of done a lot with the setting, but it was wasted by bad gameplay, bugs and other issues.

@ghosts4ever: I didn't think it was a bad game, just a bit different, but at least it had the same character and similar aesthetic. Max Payne 3 had some haggard bald guy who didn't even look like max payne. It looked more like walt from breaking bad gained 100lbs and was in a Brazil or something. Hence I never played the 3rd one, it just seemed off from what I seen.

As for the other games. Deus EX IW was a disappointment but it did have a good engine for the time, it was just too small and constrained due to xbox OG hardware focus. Ironically theif3 used the same engine and did great (although again it had to split city into hub sections. Fear 2 I actually loved. I would love a remaster of those games (as well as dead space). Fear 2 had great atmosphere and different environments compared to the same blandness of the treatment plant/offices of fear 1. Although fear 1 had better physics.

Xbox One beats Vita! In your face @Ant_17

Hell froze over, you're not an idiot and the Bone beat the Vita.

WTF is going on????

The bone a mainline console beat a dead console that isn't being produced anymore... by a few units. The bone is selling under 200 units that's sad...but expected.

In Doom Eternal there is neither ADS nor reloading. a real FPS.

lol modern warfare. another generic FPS that focus on MP.

Any FPS is a real FPS.

FPS on thumbsticks, big yikes.

I only play cod on console now. Also will be playing this one most def as it is getting more realistic and pissing off journos...so that means instant buy. They felt "uncomfortable" at the demo and some asked to tone down as it was too real. People couldn't stand war.

Thumb sticks are fine btw you get used to them... oh whats up with this "Yikes" expression. When did this bandwagon start as I see it all the time online and it wasn't said a bit ago.

Nope, the games it plays my PC can already play better.

Then there are the downsides of streaming like artifacting and input latency.

Don't forget the always online connection required. Say goodbye to gaming when your internet goes out.

Stop the presses , hell is freezing over, I think we found something most lemmings, hermits, cows and sheep can all agree on and unite with (ok there is the 20% outlier) but most hate the thought of an always online streaming solution taking over gaming.

Nope. I don't want to gaming to be run by a monopolistic company named Alphabet. I don't want games to suddlenly vanish because people stopped playing. I don't want to have to have an always online connection.

I play when there is no internet. I prefer single player and prefer physical for larger games when available and digital for smaller indie single player games.

I detest microtransactions, F2play (POE /Gems of war excluded) and would play a linear fps, open world fps/action/adventure, stealth game, tactical shooter, western RPG, JRPG or old school RPG over anything multiplayer or online only.

So no, I will keep my PS4, Switch and PC for current gen and maybe a ps5 next gen but Stadia(or whatever the hell it's called) will not get an ounce of love from me.

@xantufrog: I'm impressed to see someone here finally saying this and realizing that gaming is not restricted anymore to men.

So women can't like to pretend to be a good looking sexy character? They can only pretend to be sexy men. Because muscle bound sexy shirtless men are not being censored. Only the women... but what do I know, I am just a straight male who loves some good looking broads and art styles the likes of Red Sonia and 80s Fantasy covers, but I guess people are too offended for others to allow it. Jeesh. Oh and there is nothing wrong with beautiful women. When I play games I don't want to see regular looking people (that includes dudes too) I don't want them looking like me). There is a reason it is fantasy and fiction.
