Sorry Microsoft, being an owner of both, the PS4 is way cooler than the Xbox One.

Most of the above. Not really enjoying where gaming has gone over the last 5 years really. I kind of just gave up playing FFXV when I "had" to travel to the beach to buy a tomato (obviously it was a side quest). Dragon Age Inquisition felt like completing a shopping list or pretty much any open world game does. Has every game become Shenmue?

I'd love more games like Bioshock Infinite!!!

Bioshock Infinite by a very slim margin. A loved how the story unfolded for Booker and Elizabeth and the world was extremely inventive. I liked how it was both dark and violent but also light and fun at the same time.

Bioshock 1 was an incredible game, that just had such a flat ending.

I'm sick of the open world game design that Ubisoft invented. All side quests are fetch quests. Like in Arkham Knight: Destroy 50 defense towers, find 5 murder victims, chase this guy 5 times, complete this mini game 10 times in slightly varied ways, I'm sick of side quests just being to do lists.

The only open world game design I like is Bethesda games. Just wander around and discover stuff just through exploration, you don't even need to look at your quest list or the map if you just want to spend the day exploring.

Kinda seems like a movie thrown together by marketers. "Hey that last Superman movie didn't seem that well received, let's add Batman to it, everyone loves Batman. And hey those last 3 Batman movies were so good no ones going to accept a new Batman movie just yet, so let's add a newly casted Batman to a completely different movie series so there is less comparisons to the Nolan films." -Men in business suits

But who knows, it could be good. I did actually like the last Superman movie.

Once you get the hang of Bloodborne's combat you quickly realize it's a lot easier and more repetitive than the Souls games. Eventually I ended up really enjoying Bloodborne, after initially being put off by the fast pace, but it's still just an action game with the difficulty of a Souls game. I prefer the slower tactical combat of the Souls games myself. Also the Chalice Dungeons in Bloodborne are real hot garbage. They just spam a million enemies into big square rooms and say, have fun!

Dark Souls I & II are by far the best ones to me and I beat Demon's Souls before Dark Souls, so that your first Souls is your best Souls thing isn't true. Demon's Souls has a lot of problems and Valley of Defilement is still the worst area in any Souls game.

I have yet to try Scholar, but I played DksII so many times, I think I'm just too over it.

Animal Crossing.

Yup, after all the positive feedback from game critics, I tried out the 3DS game and realized that it's just a chore sim like Farmville... I guess some people get a sense of accomplishment out of games that are a grind like that. Not me.

Dragon Age Inquisition did feel an awful lot like playing a single player mmo and the dialogue was all pretty dull. The combat was fun but nothing else was.

I bought a key for cheap so I doubt I could even request a refund through steam. So I'm stuck with it. Plus it's playable for me on my rig and I'm sure they'll fix it.
