Max Payne is the only game from R* that's actually been good on PC though. GTA IV and L.A Noire both had issues with frame rates and bugs that didn't exist on the console versions, not that L.A Noire ran that great on consoles either.

We see violence a lot through media and accounts of it but a much lower percentage will actually be involved with violence yet many more of us will experience sex yet it is often frowned upon in its depiction.
So, I ended up timing my trip away almost perfectly. While the game comes out next week, I don't have the time to play it right now anyway and I go away in a few weeks so whatevs but by the time I return, the game will already be out on PC :D
@pr1mus: it almost looks like a duller inFamous. I skipped around a bit but at no point did the combat look particularly engaging. As you said, it's more inFamous, which for a new generation just doesn't cut it anymore.
I'd put that down to it being played by games journalists who somehow, despite playing games a lot, aren't actually very good at playing games. This should've been handled by someone on the dev team. It also probably comes down to the gameplay being from very early in the game and we've all seen that. The enjoyment of superhero games is gaining powers and new abilities but with the inFamous games, they're given to you at a snails pace. The powers we've seen too aren't exactly exciting so far either just because you had both lightning and fire powers in the last game. Yes, techinically "neon" but it looks like it plays exactly like lightning but with a new look. They've said there are other powers but I can't see them getting too crazy as you have to draw your powers from the world.
I'm a little confused by the second part of what you said though. We're a few months into the "next generation", how does this not cut it? There hasn't been some ground breaking standard set by any other game yet nor do I expect it for some time. Forza is just more Forza, DR3 is more DR, KZ is more KZ and so on, so what else is there to expect? More inFamous certainly isn't a bad thing but we don't know if it's better either. What would constitute a better inFamous? Less jank? Tighter controls? Better story telling?
I don't own a PS4 but this is the first next gen title that's actually got my attention but a single game, does not a console purchase make. I hope it turns out to be a great addition to the inFamous franchise even if it doesn't totally break new ground.
It really depends on what the DLC contains. If it's something like an extra character, weapon, clothing etc then no but I'd consider the Borderlands DLC to be worth it considering you pay the same price for what an expansion would've been back in the day but you can get a lot of different variety. Even as recent as the new DLC for TLoU I'd probably consider an expansion despite how short it is but it isn't simply just copy and pasted content from what we've already played.
I'm not really a fan of multiplayer DLC though unless that multiplayer is great and has an established userbase. GTA V for example actually has quite a lot of free content that's been added but for me, it's all for naught because I can't see to be able to find anyone to play with. I've joined maps that have single players on them and when I host a game, I'll be lucky to even get 2 people to join let alone a full one which is surprising considering the online had a lot of hype built around it and a player base of over 30 million.
It really does depend on how open minded someone can be. For as open minded as my gf can be about culture be it art, movies, books etc, she's completely closed off when it comes to games. I've enjoyed a wide range of games over my life from platformers and point and click adventures to left trigger, right trigger games but I guess it's a medium in which she has no interest in so she isn't aware how diverse it can be. Her point being that if you're playing a game for its story, it's probably not as good as one you'd find in a book.
This can tie into really any form of entertainment. That fox song for example is just, ugh. But it has millions of views on Youtube and several of them probably really love it and it's their fave song ever or something. I do listen and enjoy certain chip tune artists but to another person, it could just be a bunch of bleeps and bloops so they'll go off and listen to what the fox has to say.
