I loved RDR2 and thought vanquish was a steaming pile of shit.
The shooting was the only shitty thing about the controls I thought.

So you would want a game which is trying to simulate being a cowboy to play like Vanquish?

Lmao they are nothing like each other.
Arena based shooter which is very fast paced and visceral.
A slow methodical open world game with lashings of character.
No, Vanquish was and is brilliant but they're completely different games with a different objective and playstyle. You can compare them on a very basic level but to put them on equal footing comparison wise is just straight up bollocks.

Doom Eternal is the same as euro truck simulator because they each feature a road somewhere. Every time i drove my truck i hated it because i couldn't grapple fuck all. So i launched euro truck because of that and Doom followed because i couldn't deliver my cargo of panty liners to mars.

Yes, I really wished a wild west simulator played like Vanquish. What were R* thinking not to allow players to slide into the local saloon on their knees and start blowing shit up! 🙄

It's personal preference, but I was just expecting something more dynamic than the stodgy gunplay that hadn't progressed since GTA4, it clashed against the realism everywhere else.
When I walked into the first town I was in awe at the level of detail, hell googling it now Rockstar even modelled the shrinking of a horse testicles based on the season and temperature.
Having the resources to employ someone to 3D model different size horse bollocks, when you're gunplay hasn't progressed in 12 years seems crazy.
Having the gunplay more considered, losing balance and stumbling for cover to make it more organic or even just a cover system that works and doesn't leave half your body exposed while wrestling with the aiming would have been great.
Fully get the love, it's an awesome achievement of a game. For me it's frustrating because some elements are so far ahead of other developers efforts it's ridiculous, when others key parts have stood still and not improved in over a decade.
Tried deadly premonition this morning - I liked the prologue, I liked the start of chapter 1. But less than a minute of the driving made me feel very sick.
The driving is absolutely awful (and the reason I didnít bother with lots of side quests) but the main story is masterful to the point it is worth persevering through the driving if you can.
Absolutely hate the controls. It is just so clunky. I like the idea of it structurally and it is a pity there is not much like it in the modern era but mechanically it has aged really badly.
Fortunately I bought it in a really deep sale. So I feel it was worth paying that just to see what this almost mythical game was like. As a Megadrive owner this was one of those games I remember wanting to play at the time.

Until they fix the stability Maneater is on hold, which is a shame as it's quite fun.
Two games on Epic games store:
Hob - is pretty, but I had no idea where to go after I got the sword and shield. There did not seem to be any hints about that.
Just Cause 4 - just kept dying in the first "big" battle, also I had no idea who I was fighting. The one hour or so I've played was fun but too much was going on at the same time imho...sometimes less is more. Perhaps I should try the earlier games.

Yeah... I found job incredibly frustrating as it was just stumbling blindly alone... I am feeling this way with hyper light drifter too.

Hob is great, I was never lost once.
@monsieur-Cosmo definitely try the earlier Just Cause, either 2 or 3 (while 2 is my favorite, 3 was okay too). Much easier to approach and generally let you have fun however you wanted. I hated 4 for the scant couple hours I've played it.

@Malek86 Thanks, will do as they go currently very cheap on Steam.
Not sure how they hold up today, of course. I'd say 3 has better story missions, but the sandbox in 2 is more fun overall.
Generation Zero was a bit pants - started ok with a nice bit of atmosphere, then the combat happened.

Fire Emblem (GBA)
I'm on the last level and my patience has been used up getting to this point.
My units feel underleveled and only 3 of the 12 are actually doing a decent amount of damage that might see me through. The legendary weapons I was given don't do jack shit and regular weapons do even worse.
If there is any sort of strategy of surviving to the boss I honestly can't be arsed figuring out what it is.
Edit: after some faffing about I managed to get past the boss only for a dragon to show up. Lo and behold my weapons/defense buff do nothing and there is no checkpoint so you have to do the entire fucking fight again. Fuck that.

Spider-Man. This is the second time I've tried to get into it, and I got much further this time (I guess about half way), but I get bored after playing one mission so it has been really slow going. I think I'll just shelve it now.
I can see that the game is well made, and if you like Spider-man or comic books, it's probably really fun, but it's just not enough to keep me engaged for 20 hours or whatever.
