    I wanted to like the game so bad during the reveal etc.. but now that i have played it i'm not sure what they're doing. It looks like that kind of game that is made for profit, the story looks good but the gameplay makes it feel really ****.
    A bit like Mafia 3, which had an amazing work on cinematics but lacked a lot with repetitive gameplay.

    Yep, GRBP looks like it *grunts* was designed to please shareholders first and not gamers.
    They looked what previously sold well *grunts* and tried to mash it all. So going with available statistics, committee *grunts* decided that a "milsim light" with more pseudo RPG elements added and looter game mechanics attached *grunts* should be profitable for shareholders and enjoyable for players. After all, players did *grunts* enjoy recent AC and Division games.
    Seems like looter game mechanics and *grunts* pseudo RPG elements are the new "climb the towers" thing for Ubi...

    But for me this game has *grunts* identity crisis... I don't understand what it is... I liked quality of life stuff, like better *grunts* animations, visual effects (like the trace your character leaves in snow), dirt camouflage, but *grunts* there is also a lot of wrong things like bullet sponge robots to justify gear *grunts* level and therefore loot system, dumb beyond dumber (it still funny that after all these years, F.E.A.R. is still pretty much *grunts* the height of the enemy AI in video games... and that game is considered old), non functioning camouflage, hub *grunts* area made purely to sell crap, etc.
    I could go on, but why should I when there are *grunts* already plenty of videos like the ones made by SkillUp or Operator Drewski, which are spot on!

    As for Mafia 3, yeah, if there is a game that should have scrapped the open world (besides some of the Ubisoft titles), it's Mafia 3. It had a good hook, and overall story, and cutscenes were well made. The most enjoyable thing for me in Mafia 3 after hours of repeated gameplay was to watch a cutscene for, and play a story mission. In this regard it should have been cut like Mafia 2 - just limit to the story missions. I wouldn't have been that long, but i would have definitely be a more memorable game.
    Ironically, after looking through cut content, I wish that Mafia 2 was left on development for longer and made into a proper open world game...

    Tried the Surge 2.
    No, just no... if anything it made me want to go back to dark souls.

    Control. A fantastic game. Reminds me a lot of Prey (2017).

    Right, great idea. I had this on the back burner and wanted to give it a go.

    I absolutely loved the atmosphere in Prey. I still miss the intro/loading music.
