I'm interested. I've liked Bioware's games. I like the genre. I will play the open demo.

I have no plans on being an early adopter. I want to see the economy, learn more about the endgame, etc.

Ok I might risk it with The Last of Us II, if that dream ever becomes a reality.

Thanks for the Anthem heads up. I'll try the demo this weekend to see how it is. Kind of enjoyed Destiny 2 and Warframe...but didn't stick around in those very long. If Anthem is more RPGish that might help.

Then again EA moneygrubbing might get in the way of a decent game.

Super super pumped and relieved, spent a ton of time grinding and trying to improve, feels amazing to finally see it pay off. Will be happily sporting my Season 9 Grand Champion in game title once the season resets!
Congrats! That's impressive.

I'll buy the game once there's a general consensus that it's worth getting. Already have a backlog, no reason to risk a Star Wars Battlefront or Fallout 76 imo.

I never even bothered with Fallout 4, sounds like most people agree that New Vegas is better.
NV was better, but 4 is worth the <$20 purchase if you enjoy the franchise.

Any Kingdom Hearts fans here? I know nothing about it, but everyone is talking about it.

Need a break from Odyssey too. I love it, but I'm in the mood to finish something, then I'll go back to it. Thinking about What Remains of Edith Finch, or maybe King's Quest.

Sameskies. I remember when KH came out, everyone was absolutely loving it. I don't remember hearing a bad review. I kinda want to play the series if the're that good. I want to look up if the first 2 are available for digital download, if so, i might buy all 3.

Can anyone confirm or deny KH's greatness?

Agreed. First I've ever paid any attention to it. Premise sounds super random.
