I've probably played a grand total of 5 new games this year. In fact I haven't played a large portion of the top 10 games that have come out in the past 3 years.

I imagine a lot of people's lists boil down to "the games that I've played" rather than a real top 10 list, that's not to say there wasn't a point in my life that I played a little too many of the games that came out.

So... having said that, my top 5 games of the year are, by default:

1: Dark Souls 2

2: Super Smash Bros for the 3DS

3. Hearthstone

4. Tamagotchi Life

5. WWE Supercard

The only thing I can think of right now is if Sting will die shortly after his appearance on Raw tonight.

First wrestling thing I watched since Wrestlemania, not sure why I did, but I had a good time... probably won't watch anything else till the Royal Rumble.

Bad title, it's making me want to say "... in my pants..." and I really don't want to.

When you grow up you might not have the same opinion. I mean you won't be in the "games are evil" camp. But a waste of time... sure, though more because you've just gotten bored of playing them. Though that's not to say you'll actually stop playing games, just play them a LOT less.

I mean games are a lot of what you mentioned, and I guess I grew up in a different generation than a lot of you. It's possible you won't morph into this change and will be playing Mario 2020 with the same passion you play, whatever your favorite game is now.

Though one thing that is sure to change, is your reflexes will get slower, life will get in the way, and you will suck more than you did in the past at games.

I dunno, I'd consider the kids trying to spout racial and homophobic slurs online getting annoyed trying to find a lag free game a plus.

Though if there's really still lag playing against bots... wow.

I'll patiently wait for a Steam sale. Which at that point it's very likely I'll have lost interest and won't buy the game. Win win scenario.

Things like this remind me why I should just wait for a "everything included" + Steam sale combo, if I'm ever thinking of buying a game on pc.

Haha I know right. I like to imagine every time Marvel has a MCU meeting and someone brings up Spiderman, X-Men, or the Fantastic Four everyone in the room suddenly goes quiet and looks sad while there's just one dude in the corner flipping the fuck out.

Anywho, I think it's safe to say we'll have a lot more heroes than what has already been announced by the time Infinity War rolls around. It's just a lot of them obviously won't get solo movies. It was my understanding, and I think Kevin Feige may have even said it himself, that similarly to how GotG kinda introduced us to the cosmic side of the MCU, Doctor Strange is going to open the floodgates for the magical/supernatural side of things. That, and a lot of the Avengers as we know them now are going to be playing a smaller role when we get to IW. So, while I doubt they'll shoehorn in an absurd number of extra faces, Marvel is entering full-on, batshit, literally out-of-this-world, comic-ass-comic territory and they have a fuck ton of material to pull from. I can't imagine them not trying to throw in as many other heroes as possible along the way.

You know what they could do? Add no one new, except make everyone Zombies.

but if they end up sticking with just the Avengers and not shoehorn a bunch of other superheros I will riot, and flip a table, you have been warned Marvel.

Why though, the reason I am so invested in this is because of the INSANE amount of buildup this has had, so many movies over such a long period of time that have had "connections" and spent time building Each hero with his on cinematic debuts it is kind of incredible.

But have all these buildup movies been good? I'd argue not. I need this to get to that next next level to get my juices flowing. Though to be honest the only movie I really disliked was Thor, and it was unfortunate that the villain in the Avengers ended up being from that movie.

I'd also imagine if you weren't a comic book nerd of the 80s and 90s this all seems a lot more insane, rather than, a obvious trajectory.

Thanos was my big bad mama jamma as a kid, but if they end up sticking with just the Avengers and not shoehorn a bunch of other superheros I will riot, and flip a table, you have been warned Marvel.

I remember planning to buy TitanFall, then getting easily into that beta and being all "thanks for the freebie" and not bothering to buy the game. Same goes for this.

It's a good bit of fun, I'm sure someone who wants to play the same thing over and over again will have a good time.

I haven't played it enough to have a definite opinion, but I appreciate the effort and what they are going for at least. Even if I'd prefer Monster Hunter's co-op vs. ai formula. I can already hear the people in the full version whining AND screaming into the mics complaining how the hunters aren't playing "right". God forbid people dick around and don't take a videogame that seriously.
