PushSquare Game of the Year :- Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil 4. It always comes back to Resident Evil 4. Almost 17 years on from Capcom's horror masterpiece, it's still considered the crème de la crème of the series. Who knows if it'll ever be topped — maybe the rumoured remake could pose the question — but at least there's now a new kid on the block. Resident Evil Village at times threatens the top dog. While it can't quite surpass it, what Capcom does with the second tale of Ethan Winters proves the classic series can still be a world-beater. Fearful of bumps in the night or not, Resident Evil Village is excellent.

Could be up there for game of 2022, if they patch PSVR2 compatibility at launch!

Anyone else play Disco Elysium? I'm just not immediately hooked, and not quite sure I get the massive hype surrounding it. I've been playing it & it feels mostly like a massive visual novel. You walk around, you click on people or things that are highlighted, you ingest the dialog, maybe get an item, and move on to the next.

It's a well done story so far, but it is just a story so far as I can tell. I know there are a lot of stats & such that come into play for dice rolls, but it hasn't felt massively impactful as of yet (I think I'm about 6 hours in at this point). I'm struggling to keep with it. A lot of what I read about Disco said there was enough going on around it that it was more than just a story, but that's pretty much what it feels like. Just not sure what isn't clicking for me that MASSIVELY does for others.

I am *very* thankful they added full voice acting by the time I played it, though. I don't know if I would have been able to stick with it even this long were it nothing but static text.

It's a point'n click adventure with rpg element. So yeah.

Fair enough. I just heard that even if you don't traditionally like that kind of thing, there's enough going on in it that you'd still probably like it. And that it was going to change RPGs going forward. Things like that, so I guess I just felt like there'd be a game in here somewhere. Bummer.

I mean, at least in Point and Clicks you tend to have to pick up items & solve some kind of puzzles. I think the closest I've come to that is "there's a padlock...maybe equip bolt cutters". I haven't had to do really anything other than walk around and ingest dialog. Does that change at some point?
