None because the gaming industry is trash these days. They just release the same crap year after year. New Nintendo system? Great here comes Zelda, new Xbox here you gamers go a new Halo and gears, oh wow a new ps4? Here comes a new god of war...and of course new COD, Battlefield, and sports games EVERY YEAR...

Itís just hard to be addicted to anything long these days.

They're not the same though. And tbh, a lot of new franchises are worse than franchise releases.

It's pretty clear he has no idea what he is talking about. I play across all platforms, but prefer Nintendo franchises. To casually just toss Zelda: Breath of the Wild and (I assume) Super Mario Odyssey into the has-been 'crap' category is just lazy. These games are among the most immersive in gaming history. Other people have their favorites they would say the same about.

I get it, we are still talking about characters like Mario like 35 years later, but Mario of yesteryear is hardly the same as what we have today. Gaming has come a LONG way and I can barely keep up. Long standing franchises are among the most consistent high end options out there - I have a hard time even giving newer games a shot.

Not to mention the latest God of War was, in my opinion, easily the best.

Agree to both. I mean BOTW, God of War, FE:3 houses, Spiderman are just a few of the newer releases being potentially the best game in their respective franchises.

This is also disregarding the tons of indie games available for download on all platforms like Hollow Knight. Tons of choices for gamers.

Being a patient, PC gamer, I'm a little behind the times, but man Epic has been killing it with all their free giveaways.

Been playing GTA V this week, which I got free from Epic last week.  Now today they're giving away Civ 6, which should keep me occupied for months.  I'll be able to stay entertained even if this quarantine never ends.

Playing two games right now. I've been having a blast with Breath of the Wild. I had the game for nearly a year and just got around to starting it. Also playing an old school game in Earthbound, which is such a wacky game. I understand why people rave about it so much, because it's such a unique game for an rpg.

Super Mario Maker 2 provides infinite Mario entertainment (although without the thrill of a 3D platformer). I try to play something else, but then I always just stick this back into the system. Super Expert courses are extremely rewarding to complete and online multiplayer can be a lot of fun. The addition of Super Worlds is a game changer.

Btw, good choice on Breath of the Wild. Odyssey is still my fave on the Switch, but BOTW is fantastic.

God of War was the best game I played on PS4 and it wasn't even close. The story, animation, and the ease of controls were all breath taking. The development of Kratos as a character, and the exceedingly memorable side characters helped to make the game a modern masterpiece. And this is coming from someone who was pretty meh on the franchise as a whole.

Picked up Assassins Creed: Odyssey for super cheap. Definitely recommend.

Breathtakingly beautiful

Fallout 4 - played DOZENS of times.

If I play online it's either Starcraft II or DC Universe Online.
