To me a masterpiece has to be something that is not only great at the time, but stands the test of time. With this in mind, the only games I could really consider to be masterpieces are

  • Super Mario World
  • Super Metroid
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Games that are excellent, but haven't been around long enough to fit into the masterpiece category would be games like

  • Persona 4
  • Red Dead Redemption
  • Bloodborne
  • The Last of Us

I just went and saw it for a second time. I absolutely love these movies.

In every comment section around the internet, there's always at least one guy who can look at a list of a bunch of all-star games and say none of them are of interest, lol.

As for that list, there are a couple I don't really care about, but I'm excited for most of them. there are two potential day-ones for me.

I'm not sure which game on the list would be considered an all-star game.

  • Mass Effect Andromeda is a sequel to the massively disappointing Mass Effect 3.
  • Horizon Zero Dawn is being made by Guerilla Games, a studio that has pretty much just been pumping out KillZone sequels since the PS2.
  • Zelda could be good, but it seems like a pretty big departure from previous titles, which could be great, or could be terrible.
  • From everything I hear Nioh seems great.
  • Nier: Automata looks interesting, but as of late Platinum has had a pretty spotty track record.
  • Only time will tell if the combat in For Honor will be something that holds peoples' interest longterm. It looks like it could get old real fast.
  • Wildlands is yet another Tom Clancy's sequel.
  • Halo Wars 2 is a sequel to Halo Wars, a game that has its fans, but is probably most famous around these forums for "All Units."

None of those games really stand out to me. Mass Effect and Horizon: Zero Dawn I am cautiously optimistic about. I will probably pick up Nioh and Zelda eventually, but I don't feel like there is any rush. I think Persona 5 is going to be my next buy.

I am reading Upton Sinclair's novel The Jungle.

How much saliva do you think is in that leftover milk? Gross.

I buy everything I want impulsively throughout the year, so Black Friday consists of me just seeing everything I bought for way lower prices.

I was wondering if everyone had received their free codes for Gears 1-3 and Judgement?

I purchased the digital version of Gears 4 on Xbox One, which was supposed to give me free copies of the first 4 Gears games "in waves, throughout the first month," but have yet to receive my codes yet.

I have been having a hell of a time searching this issue online.

I think it is interesting that you believe running your own business will give you MORE time to pursue your passions. If you run your own business you will be working/on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
