    Couldn't be bothered. Playstation is boxed up and packed away.

    I activated game pass trial on pc in december, I installed gears 4 since it seemed like a good place for a newbie to start. I couldn't even push half an hour before I uninstalled. Same with Halo. I did opt not to auto renew game pass for pc because there was nothing of value in the end apart from maybe dragon quest 11 s.

    Dark souls is absolutely stunning, some people seem to think we play ds to brag, its not even close. Dark souls isn't even that difficult, god of war on hard trumps it. But from software built a magnificent atmosphere and world that makes the difficulty completely secondary, it's old school gaming perfectly done.

    In general games that involves guns are very boring to me, but you do get the occasional fun one like deus ex.

    Thank f jrpg seems to be getting more popular, games like persona 5 ensured the future. I would stop gaming as a hobby if I had to rely on the west for games.

    So to add my list of games that I skipped :

    Every COD ever
    Halo
    Gears of war
    Battle royale games
    Survival games
    Minecraft
    To get the most out of Gears you must play the MP side, that is where the game really shines.

    I have had the most fun ever in that part of Gears, nowadays I pop into some random lobbies and just play with strangers and it stays fun.

    Same with Halo, all the fun lies in the MP.

    I’m in the opposite camp. I installed Gears 5 from GP and had a blast with the campaign and the DLC. I played 2 or 3 MP matches and I’m over it, I don’t think I’ll return to it. I liked the open maps in the campaign and the set pieces in the DLC. The MP is just the same old modes with a new coat of paint (apart from Escape).

    I'm realizing I dont miss much....

    I've had a gap with some xbox games the past 6 years, but I played most of gears, the first halos etc.

    I guess I missed all the sports games.
    Final Fantasy 15 was disappointing. Hype failed me. I am Squirtbird.

    I got sucked into the MP with Gears 1 and 2, we had multiple SA lobbies going every night.

    Everyone were from the old Xbox forums, everyone knew each other.

    We had get togethers and I am still friends with most of the guys from way back then.
