I just find videogame stories to be mostly shit. Nothing that's 40 hours long is going to be able to tell a decent narrative
100% agree, game-length is super bloated nowadays. I feel like anything past 10 - 12 hours is too much.

I think bioshock is the only game story I've actually been gripped by. I can't think of any others.

I feel more limited by my hardware these days than I do by release dates. So many games that I want to get through one day have come and gone. Let's home the price of graphics cards comes down in 2022.

That said I have been waiting for Metroid Dread for 18 years. The last game ended on a semi-cliffhanger so I am looking forward to seeing where that storyline goes.

GUYS::: metroid dread kind of...i don't wanna say SUCKS, because it's a fine game so far. but it's certainly not what I wanted/expected from metroid

it's fucking hard and super easy to get lost

That's not metroid lol. this is not an issue in any other in the series except the 1st one, which at this point is more a prototype than a real game

no other metroid games have 1 hit kills, all the other ones basically tell you where to go either directly or indirectly.

I'm waiting for dwarf fortress steam release, it seems quite improved. But as we all know time is subjective and we can only wait until it comes out.

I'm waiting mostly for Zelda BOTW2.

Sadly I'm not really excited anymore about new games coming out, I've been disappointed too many times during those last... well, at least 5 years. Before BOTW, the last time I remember being completely amazed by a game I was actually waiting for was Skyrim, 10 years ago. I mean, I played amazing games since but they were surprises. The ones I was expecting turned out "meh" at best, like the Witcher 3 that got pretty boring after 20 hours, or Fallout 4 which killed the child in me more efficiently than learning Santa wasn't real.

Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines 2, S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2, and Sons of the Forest. All them look really, really good. Which... unfortunately means they will most likely suck harder than a lamprey eel.

:confusedMikasa: Gaming is heartbreaking these days. Old school is where it's at!
