Stay Strong, Don't Buy It, You Won't Enjoy It

Ironically it’s Elden Ring that’s letting me stay strong. No point buying anything else for months. 


That was kind of my plan. Although I also picked up the Destiny 2 season, so now I have two absurd timesinks to choose between…

I crumbled on elden ring .

I knew it wasn't for me but it looked so lush .

 

Played for about an hour and got Microsoft to refund thankfully 

 

I can accept the difficulty aspect but choppy frame rates and the pop up on series X was off-putting 

Can I ask how you can get them to refund?

Tempted by Triangle Strategy but all the reviews saying it's more visual novel than strategy game have convinced me it's not for me.

 

I bounced off Fire Emblem: Three Houses because of the interminable monastery segments so a game that has even more of that stuff really doesn't appeal.

 

I think I'll charge up my Vita and start another game of Tactics Ogre instead.

Very tempted by Gran Turismo 7. Entirely unsure as to why as I barely played Sport and the last one I remember playing for a long while was Gran Turismo... 4 I think on PS2. I think it's the prospect of next-gen shinies that's trying to lure me in.

I was tempted, but reading about the grinding requirements on the GT7 thread completely put me off - I don’t have time for that nonsense.

I'm in the same boat here... I put 30 hours or so into Fire Emblem. Never really felt that I really 'got' it. I might give it another go...

I nearly bought GT 7 for PS4 yesterday while in Smyth's. Then thought "no, I have about ten minutes a week of free time at the moment I won't be able to enjoy it" (have a daughter). I played a few licenses of gt2 on an emulator instead. Plus I hear there are in game purchases for cars in gt7, no thanks.

 

My worst thing is buying bioware RPGs on gog.com and then eventually buying the updated beamdog ones (baldurs gate, never winter etc). I don't think I actually enjoy these games. In fact turn based games never work for me, I just like the idea of baldurs gate games.

 

Last big purchase I made was for Deus ex mankind divided, ended up upgrading my pc, to be fair it was 12 years old. But again I couldn't find time to play it. Well I played a bit of it and it was good, but just could get time to play properly. I miss being a student :(

well done, good choice, it would take you a month to get it loaded and past the unskippable intro movie.

No game ever made has ever been worth 70 quid. 

Not even turok dinosaur hunter on the N64 back in 1997 :) (Sorry I've just started reading this thread, you posted that last year!)

 

I was shocked when I saw ps5 games in Smyth's for 70 quid this weekend. I don't own any of this gens consoles which is s first for me since the nes. 70 quid does feel really pricey to me too!
