    I used a Christmas gift-card to pick up Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and Persona 5 on sale, but I think I want to knock out some Steam games first. I also should finish Gravity Rush 2...

    Think I'm going to play Night in the Woods tomorrow as my day-off project.

    I want night in the woods to come out for mobile already so I can play it on my iPad

    I can like linear games and BOTW which is as perfect as a video game can get without being shit directly out of the anus of the manifestation of inspiration itself

    I have too many complaints about BotW for it to be a perfect game.

    But I definitely enjoyed it. It's a beautiful game, despite its glaring flaws.

    AC2 was my first open world ubisoft game

    I enjoyed it but I tried to 100% it and I ended up rage quitting over an animus puzzle that was stupid difficult

    My favorite one would have to be Black Flag though

    I got the animus puzzle. The only thing I didn't finish in AC2 was the feathers.

    AC2 was my first big open world I completed and like really did everything because it was free on 360.

    I tried playing Dishonored 1 but it was too much work to play. The HUD isn't very helpful so you need to wander around to get to the place you're going, and then there's guards everywhere that you can't really take in combat so wandering around takes forever. Also the story made no sense to me because I skipped all of the dialogue the game would let me skip

    I feel like games should err on fewer sidequests, but more difficult, with unique rewards.

    If a sidequest is more "go explore this jungle that you might otherwise ignore, fight the giant monster that lives in there, and then I will open up a whole new section of my store for you" then that's cool.

    But too many games are still doing "bring me 10 rat penises and I'll give you some silver."

    Today I screwed up and got to the airport at the wrong time. I did a same day flight change but could only get stand by for the Charlotte to Louisville portion. So I sprinted for my plane to the gate of my stand by flight. And because a flight from Philly was delayed I got on board the flight. Sadly for them, that was the last flight from Charlotte to Louisville today. I kinda feel bad about that but not as much as I should.

    open world games where I love the open world and voluntarily fire the game up sometimes just to hang out there:

    Vice City
    San Andreas
    GTA IV
    GTA V
    Red Dead Redemption
    LA Noire
    Fallout New Vegas
    Oblivion
    Skyrim
    AssCreed 2
    AssBro

    most of these are games where I love the actual game and the open world, though in a few cases (GTAIV, the Elder Scrolls games) I'm not overly fond of the game part but really enjoy just hanging out in the worlds.

    There are also a few instances of the reverse, where I dig the game well enough but the open world bores me for various reasons (Fallout 3, Inquisition), but not that many.

    Skyrim tucks shit under "Miscellaneous" and like 90% of the time that works to deter me from pursuing that unimportant stuff but sometimes I'm like "Bitch that was NOT miscellaneous that was some important shit!"

    The best thing about the motorcycle in BotW is it lets you finish all those "collect 10 mundane items" quests so much faster.

    yeah and it kinda boggles the mind

    why did they think that adding like twenty collect X penises would improve their game

    it's not engaging it's not interesting it's not rewarding and it seems that very few games do them for the sake of pacing, either (like, cool down after intense sections with some easy breezy light chores, type of stuff)

    EDIT: pacing, or as a means to show the player an area. Way too often just a to do list, because... to do lists is good game design?
