When I first saw it I was like 'this is Ride to Hell meets Last of Us' it looks more interesting than that though.

A lot of console games age poorly...at least ones that require precision. I can play Final Fantasy games from the PS1 era for example. Also, this thread is 4 years old....

Walking Simulators

I'm actually serious and I only call them Walking Simulators because we lack a term for exploration narrative driven games. Your interaction with them is piecing together the plot and gitting gud at empathy.

Burn every video game you own. Every console, every game, every memorabilia. Get rid of it.

Nah, we get these kinds of threads every month or so it seems. Life is full of missed experiences, the best way to train your brain to deal with them is to have more varied options. If you can get CBT or look up methods online, that would also help. Make a schedule, watch a TV show, read books, exercise. There's no catch 20 answer for your problem, it takes many steps and finding motivation.

If you buy a new CPU, you're going to have to buy a new motherboard and RAM to go with it. Both AMD's and Intel's current processors require DDR4 RAM, the processor you currently have uses DDR3 RAM.

Whether you upgrade or not depends on whether you really want to spend that kind of money. I wouldn't say it's necessary, but I also think you would see some gains from it, especially if you multitask while playing games or if you play a lot of open world games.

^^Pretty much this. Unless you multitask a lot while gaming or play something like City Skylines or any other game that has massive CPU loads due to having to process a lot at once, it's usually not worth the upgrade to everything else unless you plan to futureproof the entire thing at once.

I want 1080p 60 fps on consoles as a baseline. I can take the loading, which will obviously be there no matter how fast of an SSD they claim to have. They can also talk up their 8k game (which I doubt will be utilized by even Sony themselves), I just want the framerate to be smooth.

These kinds topics are always really bizarre to me. It's up to the man himself and GBE if they would consider him. We don't get a say, it's up to them. 'It would be nice though!' Sure, I guess, but we can't force these things to happen.

This thing is on Switch now, so Bayonetta could be an option.

@mightyduck: No problem. If you want a decent arcade racer that'll last you a few days, go for it on a deep discount I'd say. You will have to do some grinding or some skill challenges if you want to keep up with the recommended level, so if that turns you off, then maybe skip it.

If you don't own Driveclub, I'd highly recommend that too (not as much an arcade racer, but close). It's physics model isn't for everyone, but I think it's probably the best racing game on PS4 right now (that includes Gran Turismo).

I mean, they added more races and cars and that's about it. Summits from the first game are coming back on the 26th apparently, which is something of an end game thing I guess.

The first game I feel is way better since it doesn't try and spread itself too thin with disciplines. It has wayyy more end game content that's more meaningful. Less people might being playing it, but these games aren't really popular to begin with. They are both incredibly flawed games, but the first game had /some/ sense of adventure by forcing you to traverse the open world. The only thing the second one had that beats it is the photo ops, which I mentioned elsewhere, aren't worth it.
