    i dont see witcher 3 as game of a generation. will say though that not only is it massive, but unlike other massive games like AC Odyssey, the writing isn't diluted at all. monster contracts and side quests all had interesting stories to them.

    i enjoyed AC Odyssey's combat more, but the side quests were like "there are some soldiers over there, can you please kill them"

    Witcher 3 is wildly popular with PC gamers because it's one of the few games that made really good use of gpu effects that were too expensive computationally to use on last gen consoles, as the game was developed for PC gamers first and then cut down for consoles while usually games are designed with console limitations guiding them and then they get better textures and draw distances and other small things when ported to more powerful PCs. I think it's a really good game independent of the graphics, but for a lot of PC gamers that was the game that made building a higher end system worth it. For me Witcher 3 was a 9.5/10 game since I played it on a relatively high end PC for the time, but I imagine it would probably be an 8.5/10 if I played on PS4 with the graphics and framerate cut down. Especially since PS4 got a worse port than XBox One. But still, 8.5/10 is a really good game IMO. But yeah, not game of the generation for me, even though I played the best version of the game with minimal compromise. My game of the generation was Bloodborne on PoorStation 4 with all the horrific frame pacing. God if that would have ever gotten a 60 fps PC port or even a PS5 performance patch.

    none of my beef with Witcher 3 was related to visuals tbh

    I had no beefs with the Witcher 3. Best game I've ever played tbh. I suppose if I played it 5 years post release some of the gameplay would be slightly dated but its still my favorite game of all time. And I played it on PS4 before PC

    the missions in The Following are much better than the main campaign tbh (love the tension of clearing out volatile nests)... but i hate the layout and having to use the buggy. freerunning was much more enjoyable, and not a big fan of the way the buggy drives.
    finished this the other day. Dying Light was pretty fun. would recommend. DLC had good missions but i didnt love the buggy. ending disappointed narratively (in the DLC. i liked the base ending)

    gonna play Guacamelee next (per bb's recommendation)... followed by one of Rise of the Tomb Raider or Bioshock 2. probably dark souls 2 after that.

    backlog is still daunting after that ... dark souls 3, Yakuza 0, days gone, Nioh, metal gear solid V, skyrim, fallout 4, shadow of the tomb raider. and having a kid in 6 months. probably wont need to buy a ps5 until 2022 black friday at the earliest

    I thought it was pretty cool seeing Crane become the night crawler at the end. Well you only got six more Yakuza games after 0, not counting the new one that's a turn based RPG that looks amazing. Better get all that backlog finished these six months.

    It's funny in this thread you can see me ting on Yakuza 0 when I first started it and then becoming a big fan of the game.

    The PS2 style fixed camera angles when you're indoors are rough in the older games. But indoors like restaurants, bars, and arcades, not where any of the real gameplay takes place.

    ??? Yakuza 0 is super easy to run. Even a GTX 1060 can do like 120 fps.

    What do you get if you drop to FXAA or 2xMSAA? I never can see a difference above 2xMSAA.

    Didn't mean it in terms of fps, but the menus/controllers/ui iirc were pretty janky... For the record I don't like xbox controllers prefer playstation style and those generally require a little work to get configured right

    There is a program called DS4Windows to run DualShock 4 on PC pretty effortlessly. I just use it wired though because I can't find a bluetooth adapter that works worth a if I'm 3 feet away from it. DS4Windows emulates a 360 controller so you get XBox button prompts though.

    Steam got all the console controller built in.. Offers a load of customization. If it's a non-steam game it will still work great if you add it to your library.

    Oh , TheFlow just disclosed a 7.55 kernel exploit for PS4. So ing glad I didn't update my PS4. Guess I'll hold on my PS4 and not trade it in for a PS5.

    Piracy bout to be the king of PS4 gaming too.

    PS4 and 360 are the only consoles I have that aren't hacked, but the PS4 jailbreak covering everything up to Cyberpunk 1.00 looks like it's coming in a span of weeks. Won't ever hack my 360 since (1) it requires soldering (2) the vast majority of the library is on PC (3) all the good exclusives not on PC are cheap and I already have them.

    Reck man, if your PS4 is on 7.55 or lower you should be able to hack it in within the next few weeks. Don't ever go online with it if you want to hack it because it'll push 8.03 on you right away if you do.
