    Ninja theory games has been good so far but all of them had zero replayability in my opinion. All of them do had great plot and characterizations.

    As much as i love Enslaved and DMC, after the credits roll I'm just done with it and all attempts to replay them again just left me cold.

    Ya'll check out Nioh DLC yet?

    O Faust, can't you let us have this method of escapism? Right now, though, I'm playing The Silver Case (which I hesitate to call a game, as it's a visual novel) and I can't recall being this fascinated by a game since Pokémon Gold. Goichi Suda's ideas aren't always executed in the best way, but this is a definite win for him. There's plenty of New Order references, too.

    I am currently knee deeps in What remains of Edith Finch, it too hardly a game but it does uses the fact that it is a video game with player interaction in a meaningful way.

    I am all about PUBG at the moment, the adrenaline rush you get from that game is enough to keep you going forever.

    I've always been a big fan of classic D&D based RPG's, especially old Planescape, which I replay every now and then drastically changing my character's alignment, which is a lot of fun and literally allows you to play different games. Choosing which line to take this time I started thinking about this compact and functional "alignment" paradigm and how it's possible to apply it to any system, and all of a sudden I made this. I'm sorry.

    Anyone played Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice? Dont mean to sound condescending but a really great game for grown-ups. Great use of the medium to portray mental illness. Also, just a kickass soundtrack w the use of binaural audio. There's a set piece in there that resembles that makes you feel you're wading through Dante's Inferno that is jaw droppingly beautiful.

    Played Hellblade months ago when it came out and i do agree with what you said.
    The portrayal of mental illness (psychosis) were done really well and in respectful way.

    My one and only criticism of this game is that the puzzles can be a little bit repetitive at times and also combat can be a little bit obtuse but manageable.

    I too am impressed how they handled the subject. Did you see the behind-the-scenes documentary on Hellblade? It was heart-warming to hear what people with actual mental illnesses have to say about the game.

    Still haven't bought it yet since I haven't turned on my Playstation since I got my Switch :(
    Just beat Bayonetta 2 (incredible incredible game) and Bayonetta 1, and currently playing Stardew Valley in my free-time. Bought Xenoblade Chronicles 2 last night so going to play after I make dinner. Love this damn system.

    My switch is Stardew Valley machine too. It's funny since i got it on Pc ages ago and could never for the life of me get it to it. But on Switch? it's perfect!

    I am a little bit let down by Xenoblade Chronicles 2. I won't go much into it but i much prefer the first one on Wii or Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii-U

    Been playing video games all of my life. First major game was GTA: Vice City. Played every good CoD, Battlefield, FIFA, etc. When I was very young, I only played single player. When I was about 10, I got Xbox LIVE just in time for Call of Duty 4 to come out. Games aren't the same anymore, in my opinion, and with the development of competitive gaming (e-sports) I feel that this is simply not the life I want to live anymore. In-game purchases and the lack of communication with the community from the developers are two main reasons why games are lacking now. I want to just grow out of it and focus on my future. Also: it has come to my attention that video game addiction is now an official disease. Just thought I'd slide that in there. To soften the mood:
    Favorite Video Games of All Time:
    1. Red Dead Redemption
    2. Assassin's Creed 2
    3. The Last of Us

    Based on the video games you mention here I'm assuming you're relatively young? Your perspective is interesting as I had the same feeling as you do now when any of the CODs after COD 2 came out. First person shooters used to be far more competitive actually, Unreal Tournament, Counter-Strike 1.6, Quake, etc. What stopped me from playing FPSs anymore was actually how the games became way too easy, or rather, the skill gaps shrank due to all the item/skill leveling, increased hitbox size, auto-targeting etc. (look it up if you aren't familiar, almost all of the "competitive" FPSs have auto-targeting now - Halo 1 didn't but Halo 2 onward did for example)
    Pro CS players used to move their mouse in accordance with the gun's bullet spray patterns in order for all bullets to land in the same spot as opposed to various areas (i.e. head vs. torso vs. appendages) afforded more damage.
    The skill gaps were so extreme that it was easy for a pro player to never die in a death match vs. less experienced players. (and by less experienced I mean even playing over several hours a day)
    E-Sports have been around for a long time, such as QuakeCon starting in 1996 which you could make a living of off back then oddly enough, but there are far more games genres to compete in now (MOBAS are relatively new to me)as well as the media attention as geekdom is now a popular lifestyle.

    I think a large part of this, as comes with how many of the posters here talk about fashion, is part nostalgia and part the disillusionment that comes with age.

    So your feelings are shared. I wish I could find video games that gave me the same experience as they used to but we live in a time of the "democratic" so our reminiscing of how things used to be will just be criticized as elitism unfortunately :/

    Ahmisa, It's quite interesting to hear your perspective about the topic because we may differ slightly in age but despite this we both can admit to seeing the devolution and eventual downfall of games. I'm not really sure what to say about modern E-Sports because the games these days truly do have no skill gaps, not to mention they're not near as competitive as the aforementioned CounterStrike (I was only around for CS: GO). However, Xbox One has been making a ton of OG games playable on the new, modern console and I think this is great, as long as you're not trying to hold onto some youthful fantasy. So far I have played Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Dark Souls, Dark Souls II, and some others. I just started Bioshock, and am thinking of buying the newly backwards compatible Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. Aside from this, I think its miraculous the trend is remastered games (Dark Souls Remastered, Modern Warfare: Remastered) and it is down to companies trying to take advantage of the consumer's nostalgia and disillusionment. I will try to avoid falling into that trap and just try to enjoy it now. One last point, I think the Dark Souls franchise is a masterpiece and I cannot wait for the remaster on May 26.

    Now ya'll being hyperbolic here. Devolution and downfall of games?

    Good stuff are out there, you just gotta look for it. The homogenization of games appears in the big budget AAA stuff a lot, sure. Especially within shooter genre and it doesn't help that COD and BF pretty much had a monopoly in that genre. Cod and BF are of cause being overtaken by Fortnight and PUBG these days (these also spawn piles of clones as well.

    Now i wish that people discuss games as a storytelling tool more here. Might be the wrong place? I am aware that this is mainly fashion forum but i think this thread could benefit on SZ style analysis.
    Personally I am over the shooter games or- should i say action and violence without a proper context or compelling narrative. The war games of the past decades for example has very little to say about the warzones they're set on or human condition war taking a toll on. There has been exception of cause. The first Modern Warfare and Spec-ops the line comes to mind. Say what you will about the ever popular angry dad games (the Last of us, the latest God of War for example)at very least they're about something, they had something to say about condition of the world they're being set in. The characters changes and grown and so on.

    Also I wanna add that nostalgia isn't always a good thing either, especially when it comes to videogames. Games - or, should I say, the potential for games has only gotten better as technology advances.
    When the gaming kids of today become grown up of tomorrow, they'll be declaring that Halo 5 was miles better than a game of the matrix style future VR games and they'll be just as wrong then as you are now. I played both Zelda: Twilight Princess and Super Mario Sunshine before I played Ocarina of Time and Mario 64, and I thought the first two were better in every way for example.
