you guys sure are going out of your way to hate on a game that is getting 10/10 reviews

you don't like that Kratos says "boy", boy that sounds like nitpicking to me


Pretty sure I gave multiple positive comments before bringing up the dialogue.

As far as 10/10, do you agree with every “Certified Fresh” movie review from Rotten Tomatoes? Nothing wrong with differing opinions.

RIP Avicii. Died in Oman which reminded me of the Oman Wars which a handful of us were a casualty of.

They are trying to be subtle with their console war nonsense. It's not working.

God of War looks cool. I don't have a PS4 but if it was an Xbox exclusive or multi platform, I would prob buy it once I could get it for $20-30. It can't be on Xbox though because GoW is already Gears of War on Xbox.

I really like this. I'm sure there will be a bunch of groups I want to make but the first one that comes to mind is making a group of games that I'd need to put a disc in to play. I don't have many at this point but may not remember them off the top of my head.

I mean how long of an experience is God Of War that it's worth it to drop $400 on a system? 15-20 hours? People love to rag on the Halo/Gears/Forza Trinity but the truth is you can play those games for hundreds of hours and still get plenty of enjoyment out of them. Can you say the same about God Of War and Horizon Zero Dawn?

I'm actually going the other route - I'm buying the console and trading my plain white one in and then trading the game back. 
 

I feel like "boy" fits the colder, distant Kratos character (again, based on my limited time with the series). I certainly don't read anything racially-charged into it, unless he starts calling him "cracka kid" halfway through the game. I have to agree calling someone "boy" who isn't your kid is pretty weird though. Makes me think of a southern politician...maybe that's where the race angle comes in.
 
My father called me all kinds of things growing up. Boy is the only one I care to repeat. lol

My dad called me and my brother boy, and various other kids in our life boy. One of my lifelong friends is still (negatively (humorously)) affected by it.

I noticed that since I had to insert the disc to install Morrowind :xbox: it has a little disc icon in the top corner, but it doesn't seem to be consistent.  I would love for one of the filters to be "requires disc" but this will do for now.

i'd say it's pretty damn good, there are people here that think The Last of Us is as bad as Amy so differing opinions tend to be wrong

I'd be happy when they add the option on "where the hell did I meet  you". When you play something like Rainbow 6 then add someone because you played well together. Then you put the game down for a few months to take a break and you look at your buddylist and be like "where the hell did I meet you at". I want a folder where I can store your gamertag so I remember what game we played initially

Not going to debate you, but a person’s opinion is never wrong, as it’s his or her opinion. It may differ from your own opinion, seeming to you as wrong. An opinion may be unpopular, immoral, against the law, etc., but it is never wrong.

I actually owned a PS4 before an Xbox One, and still own/play a PS3. My opinion of The Last of Us was unpopular, as I did not care for it, but again, I’m not “wrong” because my opinion differs from the majority 👍🏼 All of this is my opinion, so you’re free to feel the way you do!

About 10 years ago when I met my wife's youngest niece and nephew I couldn'tremember his name. I asked if the boy is coming to stay with us next weekend. It just stuck after that. Now "the boy" has a boy of his own (earlier this month). He is like 1/4 Mexican but that never factored into my calling him "the boy".

This whole 'debate' reminds me of another message board I am on. A small but very vocal contingent of people believe Thug is a racist term. To keep it some what on topic I mentioned that the Batman video game and a few movies and such had white people calling other white people (who happened to be criminals) thugs. Context used to matter but more and more it doesn't seem so.

There’s a certain group of people who like to use the word thug in place of another word when referring to another group of people who don’t look like them.

well in this case the differing opinions are coming from people that haven't played the game and don't even own the console it is played on, so yeah differing opinions here are wrong

Hate to mention XBox related stuff in the Playstation thread but, the XBox GC on my bing account now says "Direct Deposit" against it, beside the "Redeem" link. So, looks like my account transitioned to the new rewards system.

"I didn't like Shadow of Mordor because kill streak rewards are unfair" is a factually incorrect opinion, being a case of mistaken identity.

"I didn't like Xcom because you can only quick save rather than having save slots." Again, this opinion is wrong. You can say you still didn't like it, but not for that reason (as Xcom has both save slots and a quick save).

"Cheetos are my favorite because they're a snack that doesn't make a mess." Wrong.

Think they meant June 1st to be the cut-off date for everybody. They must be doing few accounts at a time, so do not expect it to last longer. If you have enough to redeem and would like a code emailed, for whatever reasons, do it now.

I picked up god of war to play on my new ps4 pro and the sales guy said I should play god of war 3 remastered first for some story tie in info. I said thanks for the heads up I own that in my backlog already and plan on playing gears 4 tonight. For what its worth.

WTF happened to this thread? Derailed again, going off on PlayStation and "thug" or "boy" talk??? Waiting for political or sports bantering as we go further down the rabbit hole......I'm off to play Modern Warfare Remastered via a free Redbox rental.

I'll be back next week to download all the awesome BC Star Wars games

Someone earlier in the thread said something about a game commentary being the most pretentious thing they ever heard, so a bunch of people took up the challenge to prove him wrong.
