Your unpopular (non-political, non-offensive) opinions!

Also, Ive driven in the right lane just to have people ride my ass. Its worse on one lane roads where they pass in the one coming traffic lanebecause god forbid they have to do the speed limit.

Hate that, tailgating is a crime/ticket and dangerous. While some are just too close, happens with other vehicles too like motorbikes and so on. Too dangerous.

I knew Jim Ryan was going to be a disaster for Playstation as soon as I heard Michael Pachter rave about how great he was going to be for Sony.

God I can't stand Jim Ryan.  I had hype for the PS5 originally.  Then during all the build up he nukes Japan Studios and even now he's just shutting down studios or making them work for Naughty Dog basically.  Plus every time I see the PS5, it gets uglier and uglier to me.  

Honestly almost all my hype for the PS5 is dead, I'll eventually get one but it's not a must have to play even the next God of War, as much as I loved GoW PS4.

I don't know if this will be unpopular here, but it's certainly unpopular with Playstation fans: that Playstation State of Plays fucking suck. Playstation used to knock it out of the park at E3 every year when they'd just shut the fuck up and show live gameplay uninterrupted for 5-10 minutes. But their latest State of Play for Ratchet & Clank Rift sounded like they pulled some guy from HR and had him talk over the game every 20 seconds to explain what wall running was and other self explanatory shit. Every time I start getting into the game here is someone's dad with some dull commentary that says nothing interesting. Whoever thought up these State of Plays needs to be sent to the unemployment line, they're horrendous for drumming up hype for the games and as a PS5 owner I'm kind of worried my system is going to be the scrub console the second half of the gen when Playstation is run by such people who don't seem to understand their core audience very well (eg shutting down Japan Studios). 

 

But their State of Plays are so bad the one for Ghost of Tsushima completely turned me off from buying a game I was dying to get after the E3 presentation when they first showed it off. Finally bought it a couple of months ago and it was amazing, but that fucking State of Play convinced me it wasn't worth buying at launch even though it 100% was. It's why I turned off the Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart State of Play about 5 minutes in.

This.  I know it's unpopular but last year when Microsoft had their big huge livestream of upcoming games for the Series X.  That was hype as fuck.  They might talk about some of the games some between trailers, but otherwise they just let it show off gameplay and/or the trailer.  And it worked.  I'm fucking hyped for what Microsoft has in the pipeline.

 

To me it seems like Nintendo and Microsoft are the only ones that can figure out how to get these events to work right.  You show off the game first, then talk about it.  Not pause the action every few seconds to overly explain what's going on on screen.


Like imagine if the OG Halo Infinite trailer was like

 

"GRASS"

"LOOK AT THE SKY"

"THAT'S A HALO RING"

"OMG ALIEN DINOSAUR"

"MASTER CHIEF'S HELMET, THAT'S RIGHT IT'S MASTER CHIEF"

"DID WE MENTION HALO"

instead of just letting you see it and figure it out.

It doesn't matter what you play games on, just play good games you enjoy.

PS5 wasn't my kind of hype, also hearing about some of the issues with it compared to PS4.

Although it was fun to see the performance of both xbox and playstation,

 

Sometimes an Unpopular opinion:

All cooked meat should be fully cooked.

If you can trust some places, then you might be able to eat it raw or medium. (sushi, beef, etc)

Sadly seafood is kind of dying out due to humans trashing the planet, and at times overfishing or bad farming practices (some good ones).

PS5 is really nice right now. Ghost of Tsushima is jaw dropping at 1800p60 and I'm playing Spiderman now, which looks really nice with RT + 60 fps. And I expect Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart to be outstanding too. Also can't wait for the FFVIIR Integrade patch next month. The system is no doubt ugly and I hate how big it is (had to move my PS3 Fat because I just don't have room for both of them under my main gaming TV), but the hardware is still tremendous value even if PC gpus were selling for MSRP. I just worry about PS5 going on the XBox 360 trajectory: namely, being impressive as hell the first 4 years and then a yawner the next 4 because of Ryan. Gutting Japan Studios was completely nuts. I have bought so many of their games from Ico to SOTC to Last Guardian to Gravity Rush 1 & 2 to Bloodborne to Demon's Souls to Ape Escape and I really do enjoy these kind of AA studios games that Jim Ryan is burning to the ground.

 

There is no way I'm not getting a Series X in a couple of years. Maybe sooner if XBox has a really impressive E3, though I'd be pretty surprised to see Starfield and Hellblade II coming out this year (don't care at all about Halo).

The 64 million dollar question is who's going to be at E3? Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo all do their own events. With everything being Virtual, it almost makes sense for devs to do their own thing, stream it via Youtube or Twitch. 

 

The other side is that you cant really buy any of the new consoles right now either. Two of my friends are interested in PS5's and haven't been able to find them. With all the shortages, I dont expect us to have supply for a very very long time. 

I just want to sit back and watch the world burn.

Kinda miss E3, streamed with people there.

Now everyone do their own thing, and can't keep up with where they are going to stream about new titles.

See, I'm the exact opposite.  The Series X, and Microsoft's showcase of stuff they're making, makes me feel like Microsoft is coming out swinging much like the Xbox 360, and I'm hoping that they keep it up.

Meanwhile the PS5 just doesn't seem exciting to me right now.  I also don't care about 60fps and all that on single player games.  It's cool, don't get me wrong, and I do appreciate that these games can do that now.  It's just how I've always been about single player stories.

Series S isn't hard at all to find, I saw them on sale for hours at Gamestop's site. Though who wants a Series S with only 320GB or so of free space when it's a digital console I guess. Getting a PS5 is doable if you set alarms for when they come in stock. I used a direct add to cart link to get mine from Walmart.com, though you still have to have all your CC and shipping info already setup with Walmart and you still have to speed through the checkout.

I don't see that at all. There is nothing interesting for XBox you can't get on Playstation other than Forza and the upcoming Halo (and I don't like either series). Unless they drop say Starfield this year. I had no second thoughts about getting PS5 instead of Series X as an early adopter even though I expect Series X to probably be the better console over the entire generation.

 

But the fact no dates were talked about for Starfield or Hellblade 2 when they were shown off last summer makes me think they're a couple of years away while this year on PS5 we get Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart and Horizon Forbidden West most likely, which is pretty nice for the first year of a console when you add in the launch titles Demon's Souls and Miles Morales. PS4's first year was trash but PS5's first year looks really promising.

 

360 though was loaded with exclusives. COD 2, Oblivion, Gears 1, Bioshock, Orange Box, Series X has little chance of having a first couple of years on par with what 360 had.

see, I don't care much for Horizon, and outside of Gravity Rush and like, LocoRoco, to me Sony platformers just don't feel good.  Like they don't play like good platformers to me, outside of Sly Cooper, but we aren't going to get anymore of those either.

I don't care for Demon's Souls either cause I'm not a Souls fan. 

Outside of God of War, Sony doesn't really have anything that interests me.  They have nothing really.  Microsoft's games might be a year or two out, but they were coming in swinging.

You like God of War but not Souls games? The 2018 reboot felt very Souls like IMO.

Not sure console brand preference qualifies as unpopular.  They’re pretty evenly split.  Myself I just dislike almost all controllers enough to play PC games only just because I can use a keyboard/mouse.  There’s no actual good reason consoles can’t use them except for some reason manufacturers don’t WANT them to.  Not sure why.  You can occasionally plug in a keyboard, but for whatever reason mice seem verboten.  They’ve made controllers that look like mice but they won’t do mouse type cursor movenent.

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

There's a small handful of souls games I played.  Dark Souls 3 and Lords of the Fallen I didn't care too much for.  But I really liked Code Vein.

See it depends for me.  I love keyboard and mouse for sure.  But like the Pro Controller and Xbox One controller, I like a lot.  I don't mind the DS4 either, but I do prefer offset sticks.  I don't actually have a console brand preference outside of Nintendo, more of an IP preference.  Also outside of Halo and Gears of War, I typically prefer Sony's IPs to Microsofts... just that

well..

Japan Studio is shut down and took the IPs I preferred

Some of us have things called jobs. And most employers in the US dont allow phones on the floor. So all the people who decided they didnt want to work have first dibs. All of us keeping the US economy up and running dont have a chance. 

I just want to sit back and watch the world burn.

It’s not the bosses decision, it comes from home office in South Dakota. The fact is we have to pay attention at our work place. With Forklifts driving around, other powered lifting equipment driving around and it’s not professional to be on your phone in front of customers. Further more no cell phone rules are standard at about EVERY American employer.

My memory is a lot of what made them so awful we’re breakage and repair problems.  I’ve never seen a plastic spring that was a good idea.

A 6-hour game that costs $60 but is infinitely replayable is a better value than a 60-hour game you'll never finish.
