Divinity: Original Sin 2 is so good.

Great choices. I’d say Nioh for good and my Game of 2017. LOVED D:OS too! Really wanna play PoE but new job has me limited on time.

I’m actually picking at Prey now and I am soooo surprised at how great it is. If you loved Bioshock, you HAVE to play Prey. Plus it just released one of the best dlcs ever made for a game.

I agree, Prey was criminally underrated by reviewers in my opinion. It has cool weapons and abilities, lots of secrets that are worth finding, and a good story. There were some issues at launch, specifically having no dead zones in the sticks, and major input lag, but those are sorted out now.

I have no idea what I'm going to play next. Just finished up a replay of Bioshock 2. I can't make up my mind because I have so much in my back log dating back a couple years now. Thinking a shorter game to scratch it off the list.

Late to the party but Hellblade: Senuas Sacrifice is incredible, and I don't really like Ninja Theory that much.

It's not that long though. It's about lasting games.

Length shouldn't have anything to do with how good or bad a game is. Vanquish is 7 hours and its a masterpiece.

@SCW1982: The article itself is about 'getting through the summer' though, which means longer games that will last you. That's what @bigmalky is trying to tell you.

bigmalky346d ago

What Christopher said. The article is about games to keep you going for a while.

Playing Dark Souls for the first time during a vacation > everything other game

They are some incredible games. Make sure to play both sequels too, and most importantly Bloodborne.

Just finished Far Cry 5. It was ok. Wished I had waited for it to be a bit cheaper. Trying to finish Fallout 3 now.

Yeah....I know. I know.

Basically my backlog and then some. And I keep buying the new shit that releases 🤦‍♂️
