I like the flip flops + jeans thing when I'm in my home country of Sri Lanka. It's accepted there but the one time I did it here in England, I was called out on it.

Dope series. 2 is my favourite game of all time. At a certain point, ME1's combat becomes manageable so stick at it if you're not enjoying it at the start. Also save a bunch as the check pointing in the first one isn't great.
Racing games are weird to me because even the best games in the genre are usually undercut when discussing the best games of all time/of the year. It's something I do as well when I'm considering end of year lists. The giant bomb guys tend to put them on their lists but they never really get the recognition that other games seem to. I'm not really sure why this happens though. They seem like games pretty much everyone enjoys but no one would call them their favourite.
I guess racing games don't really blow you away like other types of games have the potential to but they deserve some recognition. I want to know what your top 5 racing games are. I decided on a low number as I doubt some people will have enough entries to fill a top ten.
- Need For Speed Hot Pursuit (2010)
- Forza Horizon
- Need For Speed Most Wanted (2005)
Hard but satisfying. This game requires you to be faster and more accurate with a lot of the platforming sequences than other metroidvanias. If you don't enjoy that, then you won't enjoy this. The combat is fucking great but also is tough. The phase shifting and shields take away any feeling of mashiness straight away. The combat also makes the game way more replayable as it didn't get tiring during the game and I went straight back in when I finished it.
I loved the reboot. I played DMC3 first and while I liked it, I prefer the reboot by leaps and bounds. They both have good gameplay but I prefer the DmC gameplay over 3. It felt faster and more intuative. In terms of story, the reboot is way better than the originals. The characters, while looking stupid in trailers, were actually really interesting in the story. They grew nicely through the story and I found myself really liking new Dante. For acting like an asshole at the beginning, he shows himself to be a awesome dude by the end.
Edit: I forgot to add just how varied and cool the environments were in the new DmC. It wasn't all gothic. The upside down city levels and the club levels were some of my favourites.
