      10 year old games on a 4k OLED with maxed out settings is the best. Especially if it’s a game you can run above 60 fps.

      100% Online gaming is pretty toxic and I love being able to play at my own pace.

      Only exception to this for me was stardew with my wife.

        Toxicity is one thing for sure but I don’t like how the commercialization of MP has shaped it.

        Indie games have a very different feel in their online gameplay compared to “commercial” games.

        Even way back, HL1 online and those online experiences felt so different because it was designed to be about the group experience rather than level up and get a skin, buy a weapon, our skill tree is massive. Sure technology was holding it back but I wish I could see what it would’ve been without the massive push for $$$.

          Oh, yeah. I just ignore that stuff. But it’s really annoying. I can’t even think of the last time I played a game online.

          Oh, I got fallout 76 on sale super cheap and uninstalled it after 20-30 minutes.

      I only want to play single player games. I’m not a super big gamer, but I just want campaigns. I recently got a PS5 and I’ve been struggling to find newer games that have a great single player campaign. RDR2 is my style, it’s my favorite game. The gameplay itself is a little problematic, but it’s gorgeous and the story just gets me where I live. And that’s what I want.
