    These games aren't for me in general though I played MGS1 back in the day from start to finish and it was extremely impressive for it's time. I thought 3 was really good, a friend got me into it and we completed it together. I played around with 4 and it was very sleek and interesting but I got bored of sneaking. Revengeance is simply amazing and not a "true" MG game. 5 seemed great until mission repetition started to kick in. If 5 had been more streamlined, edited down and tightened up I think I would have absolutely loved it. All of the components of a brilliant game were there. I think the problem with me and most of these games comes down to "I get bored of sneaking". I feel like one almost has to be a kind of perfectionist to play them with competence.

    @realchris2011 I don't think I worded what I was trying to say properly. I meant "astonishing" in a good way. I'm amazed at how well the game performs on Switch. I have noticed a little slowdown but it's not enough to turn me off from it in the least.

    Open world games-as-a-service are like heroin. They provide a fix but they don't give you a rush. It doesn't matter because they got you hooked on it.

    The best character action games are like some kind of methamphetamine mixed with a hallucinogenic. You'll get a rush and trip but it won't last forever. But damn that rush is the best. XD

    I think Nioh is a mash up of character action games and Souls gameplay. The plot and cutscenes are definitely stupid and ridiculous (in a wonderful way). There is so much about that game that they could easily fix in a sequel...

    I see character action games as middle budget games that still look great and have a ton of character but don't have that infinite-replayability that games have been leaning towards on ps4/xbox one. I think that it has to do with the inflated budgets of current gen games and I don't think it's a coincidence that Nintendo funded Bayo2 and is funding 3. The Switch is more geared towards middle budget games that flourished during the ps2 era and continued into the ps3 era. Personally, I absolutely love Platinum and I'll take fresh ideas and zaniness over tired fps tropes any day of the week. I can't put down Bayo2 currently and I think it's replacing Vanquish as my favorite Platinum action game. It's so stupid and yet beautifully ridiculous. That's an amazing quality of so many of their games.

    I just started this last night. First time I've touched it again after playing through the campaign on ps4 when it first came out. It is a pretty astonishing port, though even in just the first area I've noticed some frame drops when there are too many enemies. A few dropped frames won't stop me from enjoying it though, thankfully.
    I am curious about what cutbacks the team will have to make to get Wolfenstein 2 up and running. It seems like a more graphically intense game to me but I don't really know. If it's decent, I'll support it for sure. I just hope they include all of the dlc freedom chronicle episodes.

    @VotesForCows I also think that within powerful societies, archeologists sometimes find a lot of war propaganda because that was the dominant narrative during that time.

    @NiceGuyNeon YES! You inspired me to come back to it right away. Did you beat it on Climax mode? That's kind of my goal after hard mode, that and unlocking all the trippy costumes.

    *Mild Bayonetta 2 Spoiler*

    I blazed through Bayonetta 2 over the weekend and loved every second of it. I'm going to do a hard run with an alt character but I'm going to take a break and play some other games first. I'm making slow and steady progress in I am Setsuna. I want to play Aegis Defenders more, because it's so charming and the gameplay and puzzles are interesting, but it becomes so frustratingly hard. I kinda wish it had an easy mode.

    Bayonetta and Luka?
    ...Not that I understand anything about the plot of either game besides killing angels stylishly. :D
    I think Bayonetta is too strong to be wooed by any human.

    The flirting between "Rude Hero" Yuri and Alice in Shadow Hearts was pretty cute.
