Red Dead Redemption is probably the game of the generation for me, so it gets my vote. What an incredible ending to that game. A shame these two met so early though because I sure do love me some X-COM.
Yeah, I think so too. So all this talk about short install times would only apply if you were planning to replay a game from the start then. If you wanted to play from a later point in the game, I guess we'll learn how the PS4 handles that in the coming weeks.
I wonder about that time-to-play figures though because I imagine that applies to booting a game and playing the first level? If I wanted to replay a certain game that was uninstalled and skip to the last level for example, will the system dynamically prioritise installing content based on which level we selected or the savegame point? I'm guessing probably not, but I hope to be proven wrong.
When I used to have all the time in the world, I'd start from the series beginning if they had any sort of story/thematic continuity between games. Nowadays, I'll only do that if it's a short series or if the time commitment isn't very long. I bought and slogged through the first Uncharted (on Hard, which I regretted almost immediately) earlier this year just so I could play Uncharted 2 & 3. Completed Drake's Deception just two days ago.
For a time sink like Persona, I really want to try out Persona 4 but getting into the series from the beginning would take too much time for me so I'm looking to start from Persona 3. This is also the reason why I haven't played Bioshock: Infinite (only got two hours into Bioshock) and Mass Effect 3 (my copies of Mass Effect 1 & 2 are sitting on my shelf, taunting me).
I do wish I could just jump into games without a care though. I'd have more free time in my life.
Rest in peace Ryan Davis. Thank you for the good times. You were a magnificent bastard, and will be deeply missed. I am glad that Giant Bomb changed the industry model, so that we got to know you Ryan, as best as one could through all those amazing videos, and what a personality you were. Just by sharing your passion for video games with the world, you have brought joy into many people's lives the way only you can. Thanks Ryan.
My condolences go to his family, friends, and the crew.
