This is a really interesting concept. What if developers had paid or ad supported official streams? Sure most people would block the ads or continue to watch their favorite streamer, but a non-zero amount of players might elect to watch the devs play the game in an effort to support them directly. And this would just be additive revenue compared to the zero they are getting right now on streams. It might even be synergistic as official advertisement for the game and as a way to connect directly to their community. I could see it also as a way to play a game but with director commentary on, similar to how movies do it.

Good point, makes sense

Games that require you to unlock the basic functions of the game can suck my nuts.

I have recently played 3 games that have forced a lengthy, unskippable tutorial section that runs for several hours of the game, just to unlock the most basic functions like buying the items, customizing features, multiplayer, and even 2-player split screen modes....

What are some alternative to soulless videogame franchises?

What I mean is… sometimes people are very loyal to a videogame franchise or a company because they loved a game they released years ago (Silent Hill/Konami with Silent Hill 2, Blizzard/Bethesda with their respective golden eras, some could argue this happens too with Pokémon and Final Fantasy, etc). Ethical/consumer reasons...

I haven’t played the beta yet but I’m hoping that The Finals, which is made by ex-Dice devs, will be a good alternative to Battlefield and COD. I just miss destructible environments so badly. Bad Company 2 was so so good back in the day.

God of War Ragnarok about 6 hours in. And just started Returnal to play as my multiplayer game with a buddy online. Got to the first boss just myself and almost beat it. Love the vibe overall. I’ll also probably start Spiderman 2 this week

Hi! I’m the lead mod over on !playstation

I don’t have any issues with users posting lfg posts so long as personal identifying information is not publicly shared. Gamertag and screen names publicly shouldn’t be an issue I don’t think.

Of course, if you are looking for mainly PC gaming or a different console then this won’t help you much. We have a weekly, “what are you playing” pinned thread. Could be good to hop in there and see what others are playing and strike up a conversation and see if others are willing to team up.

Oh, for sure! You should start one!

Should I just watch this and play 2 or should I definitely play the first one?

I think I got the remastered version for free on PSN so I’ll probably play it first. Thanks!

I vote for GoW, but if you are looking to snowball it, play TF2 first since the campaign is short but awesome! Then GoW. It’s decently long, but mostly linear. Then after that, probably Bioshock for similar reasons. Finish it off with Horizon, which can be as wide open as you want it to be, but you can also mainline the main quests to get a more streamlined story experience.

Also, I’m the lead mod over on !playstation so come join us over there if you haven’t already!

Thank you for explaining it to me in detail. The mention of my profile was only to give reassurance that I was going to be actively building a community and not just making one and doing nothing. But I can see it from your perspective now. I will remove the mention from the post.

This makes me more confident that their next hardware release will be a standalone/PC hybrid VR headset to compete with the quest 2/3.
