I was being a little sarcastic, but at the same time, it's still basically "more of the same" with a couple new features. And it's not just FH that I'm bored with. I literally stopped playing FPS games like 8 years ago because all of that **** became the same twitch shooter for the most part with COD coming out annually and I was never into BF. I got sick of Halo by the time 4 rolled around, again just more of the same. Gears of War 3 got stale as **** in part 3. Those other 2 games you mention, Sea of Thieves and State of Decay, yes I don't care for those games at all so sure they have those 2 exclusives I guess but I didn't even know State of Decay was a big game. I know Sea of Thieves was supposed to be a big game, but I have never heard anyone even talk about that game so I figured it didn't do too well.
And it's not just Xbox games though. I didn't even finish Uncharted 4 because I got bored with it. Another franchise that is just more of the same. Sure the story is fun and I like the characters, but I don't get excited to play it anymore. I had no interest in that spinoff either.
I loved what they did with God of War. They basically reinvented that game and took a huge risk that paid off big time. THAT is what we need more of with some of these IP's that have been around forever IMO. The majority of sequels just feel like better graphics, some new features, and new story. Sure that works for a little bit, but it also gets old to me and those games don't excite me anymore.
I legit don't know anyone anymore who plays COD and I used to play that game A TON. Back when MW came out holy **** I was on that game so much. Then MW2 came out and that was the beginning of the end for myself personally. Then it was like 75% of the games coming out were FPS games trying to be those games. And now you have COD trying to be Fortnite lol. That's another game I have no interest in. I've seen like 20 seconds of gameplay of that game and was like WTF?
Meh I'm just getting old. Get off my lawn. But I do speak with my wallet unlike a lot of these idiots who complain about all the microtransactions but then go out and buy COD Elite Edition and all of these season passes before even knowing what the content is.
This is also a big reason I'm really enjoying the Switch and PSVR because it's a huge breath of fresh air right now where in my opinion the AAA title market has been stagnant for a while. I won't even get into RDR2 because I know most people here are anticipating the **** out of that game. Sure it looks cool, but again, it looks like more of the same with some updated graphics and new features. I mean horses balls change sizes based on the weather!
