Last Halo I played a lot was Halo 3 and it was just a superfun MP experience to have with friends. Halo gave me feels that no other FPS gave me then.

Also back then, there was this whole thing of making games look brown and drab and Halo was so very colorful.

Halo was just one of those log in and gently caress around fun MP games that aren't around much these days. It was before the every game has to be try hard era.

I remember when the forge came out for Halo 3 where everyone could create their own maps and set up custom rules. It was a lot of fun hooking up with randos and play their lovely maps. COD will never be able to scratch that itch.

Well this sucked away any passing interest I had in flight simulator, holy boring

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAz_eSDoWqY

My 75 year old dad, who cares about flight simulators like zoomers care about fortnite, surprisingly has no interest in it either. He literally wanted us to talk about his flight simulator bullshit at his funeral.

"Not terribly interested to try it. Looks nice, but I have a lot invested in X-Plane and am quite happy with the level of realism I get with orthophoto scenery, custom overlays, custom airports, high quality aircraft, and high quality device emulation. For example, the Garmin GTN 750 I have in some aircraft runs actual Garmin software that is nearly 100% accurate to the real-life device. Pilots can train with it."

For once I thought we may be able to bond with something lol

Edit: ok this makes it look better

Yeah, that last video makes it look super fun. Athough I can't imagine doing anything other in this game than to take out a stunt plane and zoom between buildings and landmarks.

Honestly, I don't care much about startup loading times, I have tons upon tons of time anyway. Who can't handle 1 minute of waiting? Go get a drink or clean your disgusting controller with a disinfecting wipe during that time.

The loading times I do care about are those in the game itself. As an example, a loading screen after entering a house. It would be very cool if the new gen could have seamless giant open worlds.

I've been a longtime PS gamer, but for next gen my game-buddy has announced he is looking into Xbox. So my pre-order is off, I'm going to wait this one out, check some reviews after go-live and make my choice then. I'm kinda brand-loyal and I have this irrational anxiety about "losing" my trophies and a more real anxiety about losing my whole library of PS4 games (and a few disks) if that stuff becomes backwards compatible. But I guess I'm still open to the thought of switching.

Your PS4 will still work after you buy an xbox though. I may be doing the same, but mostly because of the chance of Bethesda exclusivity.

I don't know if I fall into the category of most users on Gamepass, but if I really enjoy a game on there, I am more likely to just buy it outright so I always have it.

But what's the difference then between buying it or having acces to it through gamepass? Is it because the game will one day not be available on the service anymore? If so, why not wait until that day to buy it, then it'll be cheaper maybe or perhaps you've even gotten tired of it by then, saving you the money.

Having been on the PS4 after the xbox 360, I can't wait to play the Fable games again. At least the first 2. I'm very curious about how the upcoming one will be like.

Oh, and also other games, I guess.

GTA4 and Morrowwind. Ever since I saw the DF vid of GTA4 running on the Series X at a locked 60FPS, I knew I had to play it.

Oh wow, I forgot that Morrowind exists on the xbox360, even though I had it back then. I remember it ran like butt, I really wonder if a game like that could take advantage of the new hardware.
