I've played some other Animal Crossing games, so I understand their charm, but I just can't bring myself to start all over again. It always goes the same way for me. I am dedicated for a while and keep logging in and doing my chores, then I get tired of all the weeding, gathering etc., and then I stop logging in. If I ever go back to the game, there's weeds everywhere and all the other residents are either angry or have moved out. Do I really want to play a game that gives me daily chores to do, when I don't even want to do the chores I have in real life?

I have mixed reactions to turn based games. Sometimes I love them, like Ni No Kuni, Mario vs. Rabbids, Persona 5, Divinity 2. Sometimes I don't like them at all, like Xcom. Sometimes I like them, but a difficult boss puts up a ridiculous difficulty wall that I can't get past, such as one of the bosses in Octopath Traveller (I could have bypassed the boss but I just stopped playing).

What experience am I most likely to get with this game? Mostly, are there any ridiculous difficulty walls in the game?

I lost count of the number of times I completed Castle Of Illusion. It's the game I first got with my Megadrive and I loved it.

My character is 460 after only a few days, and I like running missions, but as a loot shooter, there's little reason to keep going. Sure, the world has lots of side missions left to do, and activities, but there's no longer any rewards at the end of them. I'm probably going to enjoy running the missions for a while yet, and I look forward to new content, but wandering the streets doesn't appeal to me at all.

@squateye: Proximity chat has killed the use of mics for me anyway. I tried to use my headset for a while, and it turns out other players' audio comes through my speakers instead of the headset, making the headset pointless, as I don't talk much anyway.

I'm still waiting for the release titles to drop in price, so not surprised at all that they are overcharging for these games. There's just no real offers available on switch at all. If you buy digital, you might save a few percent here and there, but for physical copies, there's no deals around at all. The only good thing is that the price of second hand physical copies stays a bit higher, so buying and selling on can allow for some savings.

Also, not sure why a collection of 3 old games wouldn't be bundled together? But I suppose if they can sell all 3 at a hiked up price, there's no reason to do that, although a bundle is the only reason I'd be interested.

Playing the Anthem Beta made me want to go play Destiny 2, but I didn't buy the latest content, so it's not worth me doing that either. I am not surprised Anthem has a 6, as I was guessing it was only going to get about 7. The beta was okay, but I wasn't desperate to continue playing when it was over.

I find these games end up killing themselves, or at least my interest in continuing to play them. Taking Destiny 2 as an example, I enjoyed the base game, then I bought the first season expansion, which wasn't great, but kept me playing more. Then there were more expansions, and other games were being released, and I just wasn't willing to keep paying into Destiny 2. This made even playing what I had of the game seem pointless and not rewarding, so I haven't touched it since.

I would actually prefer a subscription service if they are going to trickle feed content. The price would have to be very low though, like £1/month, but although that doesn't sound like much, I bet they'd make a fortune. It would have the added benefit of all players owning the same content, so nobody would get left behind.

@Oren76: Not at all. I really want to like this game, but everything I have heard about it has been negative. If it had turned out great, I'd have been buying it asap.

I have enjoyed playing the previous Battlefield games, but with the large scale operations, something just doesn't feel right. They should feel awesome, with so many players taking part, but instead I'm left wondering if my actions made any difference in the battle at all. If I killed a couple of players here and there, did it help capture an objective, or if we failed did I not do enough? If I am defending and lose an objective, was it my fault, or my teammates, or is there a balancing issue which means that objective always gets captured easily? If we successfully defend, did I help much or was it the guy in the tank doing all the work, or someone camping? The point being that I am never sure if I accomplish anything, and normally in PvP with small teams there's a strong sense of whether I did well, because it can be measured in kills and/or objectives captures. Does anyone else find the same thing with the Battlefield Operations?
