All modern video games are just graphically rendered iterations of Dungeons of Dragons, so this checks out.

Into the Breach is a lot of fun, but I donít have the drive to finish it with all 10 mech loads.
I've got two districts at ~90% and a few story missions left. Hope to have time to finish Rise of the Tomb Raider before RDR2 comes out, and then play SOTR after RDR2.

Congrats! I'm a few days away (and a few days behind in this thread).

I rolled credits on GoW, and then couldn't really get into going back for cleanup. But I'm close to 100%ing Spider-Man.

Spider-Man is fun, although the combat is finicky.

GoW has a better story though, if that's important to you.

The Spider-Man experience in VR was pretty cool. Wish it was a full-fledged game, or even a game-lite like the Arkham one. The Spider-Man one was fun, but it was literally a 10 minute demo.
