Mass Effect, all of them thus far They came out when I was my extended gaming hiatus. Same with Uncharted series, although I just bought those so there's a decent % chance that will change. And same with Gears but I never owned Xbox systems, so I don't feel bad about that.

And actually all of Call of Duty, I've maybe played 2-3 hours total of the entur series in smatterings here and there and I don't ever see myself really messing with them

I think it comes down to why you enjoyed the game in the first place.

If the primary attraction for you was the novelty of the combat system, then yeah it is probably getting stale after more of the same 3 more times + other franchises incorporating elements.

If the primary attraction for you was something else (the level design, exploring Gotham, the Batman mythology and veneer, the story etc) then you are probably not bored.

As for me not fatigued at all, in fact I just Played City and Origins (+ Blackgate) a couple months ago and still very much want to play more. I just can't get AK to run right yet on PC :(

I don't get bored of most franchises though, Dynasty Warriors is one of the few that wore out its' welcome with me pretty quickly.

Seems really weird to have this unpinned as I think he should never be forgotten (I'm dreading the day we get our first "Who is Ryan Davis?" thread)

but if that's what the guys and Ryan's family want and need for their own healing I can support that.

Thank you for understanding. It was not an easy decision.

I'm sure it had to have been absolutely gut wrenching and I don't envy you in the slightest. Thank you very much for letting us know and for everything else you do.

That's fantastic! Well done everyone! I hope this helps Anna find some peace and maybe even some happiness.

@mb:

fwiw I don't take the unpinning as a slight at all, and certainly didn't intend to imply that if if what I said came across that way.

Eventually as the site rolls along you are going to have brand new members who won't know anything about Giant Bomb from 2013 and before, and consequently who Ryan was. There's already been a couple threads asking about what Whiskey Media was. That's just natural, time marches on.

I think a lot of users probably just liked having the thread pinned, since it's about the only obvious permanent tangible accessible memorial to somebody who was so well loved. That's all

but again in my mind, what I may want or what other users may want is a lot less important on something like this than the people who actually knew him want. Everybody handles these things in their own way. And if letting this thread go is what the Staff, his family and maybe even what Ryan would have wanted, well that's what really matters.

It's just tough to see, since it's another reminder that he's gone.

This doesn't look like my thing and I've bee mildly turned off by what I've seen so far. If I were to get it it would be on PC.

That seems very unlikely though given my other options (Metal Gear Solid V, Persona 5, Just Cause 3, XCOM 2, etc) this fall.

I don't like your choices, but yes I do.

I think if nothing else it's very classy of GB to let Patrick use "Worth Reading" and I'm assuming the "Interview Dump truck" if he so chooses in his future professional endeavors.

@blzzzrrttt

That's awesome man! Thanks for the shout out! Man you are knocking a ton of games out, just make sure to take breaks when you need it so you don;t burnout like I did last fall.

I had written a much longer comment earlier but the site ate it :(

Nah it's happened to me too, I don't know how they can avoid it though

I got a major reveal spoiled on the Steam forums from a thread title when I was just looking to see if a new patch was out (and to see if people thought it fixed things), since the framerate still swings like crazy on my machine

B:Ak is kind of an unusual situation because of the tech issues with the PC port. By now normally I would have known all this stuff already or would have avoided any places that even talk about it entirely. But since I'm trying to figure out when the game might be finally in a state I want to play it in, I kinda have to wade into places I'd normally typically avoid.
