I bought a new car a few years ago and I will buy new again. If you intend to trade in your car after a year or two I can understand the depreciation argument but if you plan on having it for more than 6 years why care?

No. Keep your PS4.

I voted PC, (already pre-ordered), but the PS4 version will be the platform with the biggest audience. My how fast things change.

In Skyrim the best stuff was what you made yourself so I crafted all the time.

That was the year that AC2 and Uncharted 2 came out if I remember correctly. Considering how awesome those other two games were it's a real accomplishment that it managed to garner some end of year awards. (Uncharted 2 though won the lions share). Most of your criticisms have merit, (especially for the boss fights which we all thought were bad at the time), but the game was sooo great in other areas that most of the flaws could be easily glossed over. The stealth sequences were a revelation and the combat, especially fully unlocked, was fucking awesome. The scarecrow sequences. Man, the way they just popped up out of know where. Just wow. I platinumed that game and it's still on of my more fondly remembered gaming experiences.

To be honest I think your biggest problem is that you played it now instead of when it came out. You also said that you played a few games that were clearly inspired by AA so your feelings on the combat are not going to be at the same level of excitement that many of us had when we played that style for the first time. Refinement happens and obviously iterated versions of that combat are going to be better than the originals. All that being said I'm glad you enjoyed it a little. It may not have lived up to the legend that was birthed from that game but you still found it good.

I'm in the same boat you are but I've had much better luck it seems. First, make sure you get all the basic cards for your hero. That way you at least have a clear way of beating an opponent even if that way depends a little on luck.Second, focus on getting good with 1-2 heroes. I'm not saying that getting good with all of them is not a good idea but jumping back and forth is not going to help you. After that, keep playing and learn why you lost. I don't have a winning record by any means but I know I lose because sometimes I focus too much on spells and not bringing out my minions. I tend to win more games with my mage than my priest but I really want to get good with those two before I move on to my Shaman.

The PS2 and the Snes are the two best consoles ever made. Take your pick between the two.

I loved Bloodborne. It made me want to play the other Souls games now that I see what I was missing. Sadly the combat in Dark Souls 2 isn't as good as Bloodborne. Yes there are more weapons but, like Borderlands compared to Destiny, a lot of them are shit. Plus man is the combat slow compared to Bloodborne.

Just to add to this I also lost a ton of insight at that section. I was in the 70s and finished that section with 58. You know how much I had during the final boss fight? 94. That doesn't include all the madman's knowledge and later wise man's knowledge that I have. If you want insight the game gives it to you in spades

I might start with the Pulse Elite Headset. It works well with the PS4 and also works with PC
