Agree with everything else you said about it, and I use a similar strategy with open world games. I really like how all of the side quests fit into the overall narrative and complement the main story. A lot of other open world games' side quests feel a bit tedious and superfluous, but that's not the case at all with GoT.The Marshall Plan wrote: ↑Mon Feb 05, 2024 1:17 pm I’ll keep you updated on Tsushima. Right now the game is easily living up to its expectations. I’m focusing on side quests and things like that now. That’s my strategy for the big open world games because those abilities and resources you gain in those side quests make the main story a lot easier.
Amazing fighting system! I LOVE the standoffs. I love the cinematic feel. Great characters. Acting. You care about the hero. I just learned Water Style to make it easier against enemies with shields. Found my first fox den.
Your commentary about detail is huge. It’s why I love GTA 5 so much. I’ve beaten SP a solid dozen times but every time I find something new.
I just beat GTA 5 on PS5. Compared to XBX the graphics are better and the random events spawn with more consistency.
GTA5 was the first game I played on the PS4, and I've been a huge fan of every GTA single player experience since GTA3 blew my mind in high school (Pretty sure I could still fly the dodo - that thing took practice to get good at). I'm really looking forward to seeing what they've got cooked up for 6. It's a can't miss game for me, for sure.
I've really been focusing on side quests and building up my character. When I encounter a small enemy stronghold I will take it out. Otherwise I avoid the big main quests; the large red buildings on the map.
My health and resolve should be pretty high for where I'm at in the game.
I unlocked Heavenly Strike which is hilariously OP. I'm nearly 1HK'ing any baseline enemy now.
When fighting groups my primary focus is on killing the archers first. As soon as I do that the fight is over quickly.
I cannot get over the graphics in this game and thinking about how it's almost 4 years old. This is also the best combat system I've ever experienced in a similar game.
