I can't recall ever being less hyped for a new generation of hardware than I am right now. I thought Sony's showcase was really good and there were some games I'll definitely want to play but honestly the leap isn't that great to me. Games still look pretty great on current hardware, and I haven't even played TLoU2 or GoT yet. I need something more than minuscule loading times to get on board.

I thought MS' showcase was shockingly awful and really put me off from the XSX big time. It has nothing to do with COVID, unless you're going to tell me there would've been all these awesome exclusives that got massively delayed. But Sony has to deal with the same issues and they delivered.

I think it depends on the game. Some games voice chat isn't as important. Warzone not being one of them though. The ping system works ok, but in addition to voice chat not instead of. I play with a steady group of friends, and only with clear communication and learning each other's play styles have we been able to be competitive. I can't imagine winning with a squad of randos with no mics.

I chose 61% to 80% and its probably right in the middle of that range. If it wasn't for Modern Warfare it'd probably be 0% though.

@csl316: For me it was Far Cry 3 that made me say enough is enough

Was it Gladiator? Arcade game from Taito released in 1986. You raise and lower your shield to protect from projectiles and there was one on one fights where you would knock pieces of armor off the opponent.

Probably 15-20 hrs. The most time consuming thing in the game is chocobo breeding. It's a totally fine way of experiencing the game in 2020, and I think it's kind of necessary to have some point of reference when you do play FF7R.

@huntad: OP has an opinion he feels very strongly about, but i don't think anyone agrees with him.

Honestly i'm moved by the dedication he has shown towards his defence, regardless of who is right or wrong he rides on a tidal wave of belief, and it is us who will be swept away by his righteousness.

Haha, I know right? If only I had half the conviction in my own beliefs that @npfeifer has shown in this thread. Unfortunately, I tend to know when I'm pissing in the wind.

I'm a sucker for a good Cuban. Roast pork, ham, swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard in a pressed sandwich. It's simple but delicious.

That muffalatta looks like it would put me into a carb coma that I would never recover from.

Uh, yeah I don't want to listen to anyone with a "everything is fine" milquetoast point of view.

I don't want to listen to "graphical analysts" splitting hairs when it doesn't matter at all.

Then don't? Digital Foundry's niche is breaking down the performance of video games and delving into the minutiae of frame rates and resolutions. If that doesn't interest you, you probably shouldn't waste your time with it. And what exactly does this have to do with Giant Bomb? I can't say any of the personalities here seem particularly hung up on the technical performance side of things.
