@henrythefifth: What do you consider mainstream? You claim Assassin's Creed got mainstream when they were already popular from the beginning. You praise games for not getting mainstream when they are part of the most popular game franchises on Xbox. I don't understand it.

@playerp: You're not familiar with open-world games I gather? They never "end" like other games will do. Maybe you'll get an end-credit or something, but when that's done you're back in the game-world and can continue playing. Doing side-missions you haven't done, collect bountys, doing challenges etc. etc. Into the Sunset is an achievement/trophy you should receive after the last story-mision: "The Last Enemy that shall be destoyed". It ends with John Marston dying and end-credits. After the credits you play his son Jack. You start off at John's grave and you're back in the game-world doing whatever you please. There are no more endings and you can safely turn off the game and play something else if you want to.

@henrythefifth: This sounds like trolling to me. A real gamer HAS to like so and so. What bullshit!

I don't understand what makes AC Origins and Oddyssey more mainstream than the others. I hated the first Assasins Creed, steal something from that guy, and use it to find out who to kill. Boring. Assasins Creed has evolved for the better. More complex mission, more weapons and armor for your character. Much more to do and see. How can that be negative?

I'm really not sure. There's been very few new releases that interest me, so I've started replaying some of my old games and starting to run empty of replays I want to do. Control seems promising and maybe Man of Medan. I liked Until Dawn so I might buy it.

Finally getting good enough to get trough the Batman Arkham games on hard. I struggled a lot with it, but it finally clicked. That's why I hated the tank battles so much in Arkham Knight. After finally getting to grips with the combat system in the Arkham games and was proudly playing on hard I had to resort to easy because of those damn tanks. The Tank Battles were a chaotic mess that didn't belong in a Batman game.

@playerp: You're nearing the end. You will have to do some more farm-chores and you will eventually get to the end. Believe me, you'll know.

@RSM-HQ: I didn't really care for 5 or 6. I had 6 on the backburner a long time until I finally decided to finish it. They're ok games, but I play mostly alone so I don't like co-op games very much.

None of you count Revelations as a RE-games? I think they were pretty good, sorta return to the roots with puzzles and sneaking around with limited ammo.

I think there are far too many good good games in the RE-series to call it bad. I never really considered the other spin-offs as RE-games.

@henrythefifth: Lol! He wasn't retired yet. He got it cheap and used from an ad. He got lots of games with it. He bought it mostly for when his grandkids come visit, but he had some fun himself.

@henrythefifth: I don't know how old you are, but my father who recently turned 69 got a Switch for christmas. He's gotten many consoles at various points. He got a GameCube a few years back. He had a Wii, he bought a modified XBox a few years ago to play pirated games. Right now he has a tv hooked up with Switch, PS3 and PS4. He's in the middle of Super Mario Odyssey, and he completed Horizon Zero Dawn recently. And he tried Fallout 4, but he didn't enjoy it a much as Skyrim that he's played a couple of times already.
