I even play trash games for the story. Even if its a story I have to make up for myself. The fact that they went for the laziest, most Im a fucking 12-year-old M. Knight Shymalan! Ending just makes all the rest of it seem like a waste of a good open world.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

I dig this redneck chick I found out in the woods so much I see her as my main companion

Oh man, whaaaat?

in the game.

Whew!

Can't pause cutscenes in Farcry 5.  Good job, you fucking childless assholes.  The actual game part is banaynays and usually fun.  When it's time to be hauled in for Story Time, I just drop my pants and take it so I can get back to more fun later.  Otherwise I don't have any issues with the story.  Stories in games have always been shit, and they always will be.  If you want a story, read a fucking book.

Related perhaps, still playing Warframe in a duo.

Downloaded Stardew Valley and very nearly made it to the first evening to save.  Maybe next time.

Got back from the WWII museum in NOLA (which I recommend), after visiting many important locations in February (see Instagram) of 2018 and some in 2017, and somehow wanted to pick up Wolfenstein again.  Need more free time but will try to make some progress this spring.  The story is ridiculous enough that I'm finding it entertaining the same way smart people enjoy Steven King.  In fact, after my educational journeys I now find the brain-damaged ex-Nazi amusing for reasons.

Given up on Fortnite again.  Maybe will try again later if we get bored with Warframe.

AC Origins.  I'm seeing a trend of murdering pretend people in simulated environments while surrounded by asinine storylines.  Might do the re-worked Ezio ones after this, or some of the PS3 ones that I have installed there.

Finally, I want No Man's Sky to tickle me down there again because I think I have forgotten how much of a dumb-ass bitch she was last time we dated.

Why am I homeless?  Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question.

I think it's the combination of the game interrupting what you're doing to compel you to do the story thing (even if you skip the cutscenes, you still get interrupted and have to do a bunch of dumb shit to get back to what you were doing) plus the pure unadulterated shittiness of the ending that really ruins it. I keep coming back to the analogy of how that would look in similar games--if Skyrim not only interrupted you in the middle of other stuff to force you to push forward the civil war plot but at the very end you found out that you were never actually the Dovahkiin but were just being manipulated by Paarthurnax and Alduin and you'd actually destroyed the whole world and everything you'd done in the game was irrelevant.

Also I really hated the way it handled save points; a lot of the side quests and story quests restart if you log off no matter how far you are in them.

Finished X-Com 2: War of the Chosen and that was just a fucking excellent game.

I've been playing a little Civ VI multiplayer with some buddies and other than not being able to finish a game or even progress very far without someone having to quit, it seems ok. It's got lots of shit that it throws at you but I'm not sure it's as good as V. I've taken over from some AI leaders in multiplayer games and by God, it looks like the AI is just schizo and retarded. I have no clue what it was trying to do.

I've picked up Stellaris finally, though I don't have all the DLC yet. It is, however, scratching my itches pretty damn good in the early stages. The soundtrack is fantastic and it feels like a weighty game.

I may have finally quit League of Legends for good. The latest patch has taken the meta trend of season 8 and gone full fucking methtard. In the pursuit of making games shorter, they have turned every game into a full on retard team fight slap fest. Unless you are playing a tank, every team fight will go the same way. One person will step a nanometer too far in the wrong direction, immediately get chain CCed for the literal 1 second time it takes for the entire opposing team to melt that person down into a puddle of champ bits before moving on to the next victim. If you are the person making that wrong step, it becomes a frustrating experience because the minute you get hit, you realize there is absolutely nothing you can do to avoid the death. There are so few escape abilities that aren't compromised or countered by the waves of CC. It reminds me of early days of Dark Age of Camelot - stun, stun, stun, die. The team with the most tanks and/or crowd control abilities wins. And this starts from like minute 2 of the game. It used to be you could tell by minute 10-15 if the game was going to be lost or not - now it's by minute 5 and the comebacks are going to be super rare.

I don't disagree with the Farcry points.  I'm not far enough along that I'm unable to pick the peanuts out of this turd.

I forgot to mention that I like Steamworld Heist.  But I really should get back to XCOM 2.

As I said, I skip the scenes. I did let most of John's run, but they were so awful I just tried ye olde esc and voila. So for Faith's (I'm not quite halfway up her progress bar yet) I just skip them all. Saving the mountains for last because the environment is so amazing I just want to savor it.

I thought Skyrim mostly sucked. I never got the hype. And though the open world was ok, the story parts were pure garbage and I actively avoided it after a while.

If there were more companies writing stuff like The Baron from Witcher 3, I might give games a chance now and again. But hell naw.

Shirleybob, I do make up my own stories for it. Me and my two redneck girls who mostly raise hell, hunt, fish, and kill anything that gets in the way of those things (aka the peggies). So not only do I not care about the story, technically I roleplay that in how I play.

FC5 will easily sit in the top ten of my /played time on Steam. I don't play a ton of games like a lot of you guys, though.

Don't be jelly, I can't play all of them and I just buy them to fill a void in my soul.

Fuck, really? I just finished off the last underboss.

Fuck that. I'm going back to The Division.

I played Ghost Recon Wildlands to the end and it had really unsatisfying, fuck stupid ending, too.
