does anybody else find this steam summer sale stale? like idk, it might just be me, but i can't find a single game that really appeals to me. i was so hyped because i wanted to buy more games, but i guess i should of done some planning out before i was hyped, because i literally have no interest in any games. anybody else feel this way? btw i could use some good recommendations. the only game i've been considering is company of heroes 2

I bought Pillars of Eternity, Rainbow Six Siege, MGS5, highly considering Stardew Valley and XCOM 2, but then it's like, when the fuck am I going to have all the time to play those games, and I might as well get some of them next summer sale.

Pillars of Eternity is like Baldur's Gate and DND made by the people who made Fallout 1 and 2. Great start so far. It's kind of like Divinity Original Sin, but unique in it's own way.

Woah woah.

Pac Man is better than The Last Of Us.
You compare video games from a completely different era of gaming to a modern cinematic experience of a video game. Whilst The Last of Us is an incredible cinematic and story driven game with some interesting gameplay aspects it is sadly mostly bland and repetitive. You chose a bad example my friend.

I chose the same example Game Theory chose, and they ended up with the same argument.

Same argument can be had with movies, personal preference is what you enjoy most at the end of the day. Personally I enjoy a good story driven movie or video game; I would consider Reservoir Dogs a great mix but at it's best for it's great storytelling in a 1st person narrative. But you can enjoy gameplay over story if you wish good sir, as I said, personal preference.
