what kind of idiot contacts devs for support of a game he didn't even buy... that just seems even more sleazy than simply pirating.

hey guys i'm going to fuck you by not buying it and also help me with my questions for free too. total douche.

Dang... it was a huge void without Ryan to join in the local fun (RIP), now Vinny won't be around? Running out of the character that GB runs on and what makes it better than everywhere else. Drew is stepping up and getting pretty good but come on, Jeff, Brad and Drew can't carry SF anywhere near the the way things were with Ryan and Vinny as well.

Also not a huge fan of the Chicago stuff, hopefully Alex and Vinny and a little new blood can really kill it in NY and new blood in SF works as well. They know GB functions off personality, they know it's crucial to get the right people and hopefully they pull it off. Fingers crossed!

Totally understandable if you don't want to keep up with new releases. I guess I mistakenly assumed that's what we all wanted. My strategy allows to me get through a fair chunk of games and be close to up to date with current popular releases. It's also not really an implication, but more so a fact of time. Anyone with a lot of responsibilities doesn't have the time for hard games that take ~40 hours IF they want to stay current. I don't know why people get so sensitive, just the way it is. You simply can't put in 50 hours a week at work, take care of family needs, a house and then dive into hardcore gaming while staying current in the slightest.

As an adult with a fairly high powered and stressful career followed by the other typical adult responsibilities I play most games on easy and have to avoid a lot of MP. I play games to relax and escape stress, so easy is where it's at. People that want all games to be super hard and 40 hours long *probably* have no lives or are superior humans (doubtful). I also know I don't have the time to sink enough hours into MP to get as skilled as I need to be so it'd be fun as well so that kind of blows but whatever.

I find it curious that you feel the need to assert how important you are and insult anyone that might be better than you at playing video games.

Anyway, it depends on the game for me. Usually I play on normal, but The Last of Us was a much better experience for me when I moved up to hard.

Assert, as in state a fact about me? Yes this entire thread is about why we choose the difficulty we choose. I stated the fact that I have a very demanding and stressful career and because of that when I play games I don't need any more stress than I get at work, it's not too much but is my limit and only do it because it's "worth" it for my family. I have an executive position in finance and we'll leave it there. I don't have the time for many 40 hour games, nor do I want to punch myself in the balls when I do get a few hours to play. Too many people here take shit too personally. I still stand by the idea that people who want games to be super hard and near 40 hours are the hardest of hardcore or no lifers, there's simply not enough time in the day otherwise.

Or maybe some people consider a challenging hobby outside of work to be the best stress reliever.

Just out of curiosity what do you do for a living?

For a post considering quality over a generation I feel like this was done by a second grader. Lacking so much content in here to make a best of the gen call it's not even funny.

GTA V because it will get more talking time and you'll want to be in the know. I'm playing AC4 now and it is pretty amazing. Likely the most fluid ac game with pirates, detailed ship warfare and a beautiful Caribbean setting. And yes pirates are way better than some Italians in the renaissance.
