Opinions on the best single player stories this past year? (Can include PS4 and Switch.)

Wanna play something new while my wife and family go on their beach trip. I unfortunately have to work and be a bachelor this next week.

Nier Automata if you didn't play it yet.

Did you complete FFXV with all the extra content?  I've been thinking about finally playing through but I'm hesitant to knowing there is yet more content coming out for it.   Did you feel it was a complete game or will this new content fill in some pieces you felt were missing?

I played through it earlier this year (March/April timeframe). It felt like a complete game to me, with the character Episodes more add-ons than anything (more of those are what's coming). The story is what it is. I don't think the Episodes are going to help it that much at this point.

Celeste is a solid single player game

I haven't played the Royal edition with all the new content and updates. The original felt like a full game, though, even where you could tell it was rushed. The updated version does allow character swapping in battle, which seems like a huge addition in terms of gameplay and combat, but story wise I cant comment on how much extra there is. I did log 60 hours in the vanilla release, though.

Got a response from support earlier today. Sent me the mixpot as 4 different codes via "messages from xbox live" on the console.

After playing some more of the beta, I'm 90% sure I'm going to cancel my pricing error crew 2 preorder. It's a fun game but not for the price of a full game, plus the season pass doesn't seem worth the price if it's just vehicles and cosmetics.

If you have a switch, I would say breath of the wild. Horizon zero dawn for ps4 and gears of war for Xbox.
Older story games I personally enjoy playing are the Witcher series and the Batman series.

This year God of War PS4. Persona 5 PS4/PS3 last year. While short and sweet I *loved* the whole story of Hellblade as best XBox story experience over the last year.

4k TV input lag is great and around the same from I've seen compared to 1080P tvs. The problem is HDR that adds a bit of input lag, nothing major but added regardless.

I didn't realize that there was noticeable lag with 4k her tvs. Do they all do it?

Oh and for the baseball fans out there. The Os and Braves are in the bottom of the 14th inning!

Not normally one to call it out, but this is some entitled-ass bullshit.

As stated, I wasn't expecting anything, but being totally ignored (no smile, not even a wave) wasn't one.

Cut the man some slack.  Doghuge is on his last leg.  I'm not a huge fan of what he posts online (or what it brings out in the people that follow him) but his photos of his best friend makes my heart hurt.

It was two years ago, before he had to shut everything down so it wasn't like a 'sad keanu' meme that it is now. I don't understand your mention of his best friend. I've never followed him on social media, I just respect him for GoW.

Finally beat Sunset Overdrive, man what a great game. I pre-ordered this too, played a little at a time through out the years and finally got time to beat it. I did all the side missions and I may try get all the collectibles. But I’m on a roll trying to tackle the backlog. Not sure what to play next but I think I’ll look at my purchase history and continue with games I purchased full price. Haven’t bought games full price in awhile and I’ll continue to pretty much stick to the CAG ways. I hope Insomniac makes a sequel and new Xbox games and I’ll play Spidey later down the road.

You've inspired me to keep going with Sunset Overdrive. It came free with my Xbox One, and I started it a few years back, but I used to have a small TV that made it hard to keep up with the onscreen action, so I stopped playing. After I got a larger TV recently, I went back to it and couldn't figure out the basic game play mechanics. So, I'm slowly figuring it out again. I have trouble going from the rail grinding to the shooting and back. But, I'm going to stick with it. At the very least, it's one of the better looking games on Xbox One. A lot of bright colors and a lot going on in that world.

Yup.  I was the same way before.  I was juggling a few games at the time and the controls were really different in SO so it was kinda hard to get use to.  Your fingers really have to be active while playing lol.  It becomes muscle memory after awhile though.  The RB button becomes handy to dash forward to reach certain spots.  I think before I was just moving at a straight line but I realized the best way to move around is to just flow, bounce on everything, wall run and grind here to there.

Gamepass is awful for people with backlogs. I still bought 6 months because I hate myself.

I bought 12 months

Yeah I'm all physical for Nintendo as well. Have zero trust in their digital network and game front.

Totally agree. One press of a button and your digital Overlords can effectively wipe out $100's or $1,000's worth of digital purchases.

Same goes for everyone dancing on the grave of retail. What they fail to see is how their future internet Overlords will pull a complete 180 when they've eradicated most of the local competition in a market. History lesson ... see Wal-Mart.

Every TV has some lag. It’s impossible not to. But it varies from TV to TV. On my TCL, I don’t notice it at all and it got good ratings for lag. In fact, I’d use rtings.com to compare.
