Because gigabytes of eye candy and forced immersion are easier than actual praiseworthy game mechanics.
Well, the funny thing is, RDR1 already worked really well. Much like with the eating and other B.S. they added to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, they included a bunch of new details in RDR2 that didn’t add much to the experience — but unlike GTA: SA, you can’t just ignore those details if they don’t interest you. They’re shoved in your face and you’re forced to deal with them.Because gigabytes of eye candy and forced immersion are easier than actual praiseworthy game mechanics.
I never bother with online content. Well, that's a lie, the only game I pay online is HALO, because I play it with my friends in the U.S, but that's it.I never bothered with the online portion of RDR2 — do the same tedious things apply there, or do they loosen it up for online play? I had a blast with RDR1 online in Hardcore Free Roam back in the day...
Has anyone played little nightmares?
This JUST happened to me with Little Nightmares on xbox Gold lol. It didn't sting too much, because only the basic game is available for free and I bought the "complete" edition (which is STILL incomplete)* at a deep discount. I decided to give it a spin and played the whole thing in just under 6 hours. It is a fairly short game with the main game clocking at 1.5 hours and the dlc another 1.5. Took me longer because I explored every nook and crany, some areas were trial and error and some puzzles took me a little longer than I'd like to admit. VERY satisfying game. Amazing and it did creep me out. I played it alone... at night.. minimal lighting and I was pretty creeped out. I really like playing suspense/horror games like that. Playing them during the day really kills the mood. Can't wait to get started on Alien: Isolation in a similar manner.
Been a while since I played through Isolation, but I remember the alien’s behavior became pretty predictable after a while. I think I really enjoyed the first 2/3 of the game and then it started to wear out its welcome a bit. I did finish, though.
I bailed out about 2 years ago. Played a little when the pandemic started but it didn't grab me, so I'm really not up to date.
So pure fantasy now. Love it. (I do not actually love it.)On the sidenote, you might want to know there are 3 USN BB lines at the moment in the game. There is an extra super-dreadnought tech tree line which is Tillman-inspired but the hulls are not Tillman. The final one on Tier 10, Vermont, has 4x3 457mm guns. There's also an informal, premium/reward line of ships that have extra secondary performance and fast reloading heals. Their tiers 9 and 10 also use 457mm guns.
