I obsessed over Horizon HARD when it came out earlier this year. Probably top 5-10 games I've ever played, the story was just so fucking good and the combat was the best I've seen in an open world game. There aren't many games where I do everything and still log in months later just to walk around and take in the sights and sounds, but boy howdy that was one of them. 

 

Some other games I've had lots of fun with and/or obsessed over in the past 1+ years in kinda chronological order:

 

- Stardew Valley

- Witcher 3 (probably my favorite game ever, scratched every single gaming itch I have and gave me belly rubs)

- ABZU

- Overwatch (only play a little when the holiday updates come out, still fun for a few rounds of quick play)

- DOOM

- Dark Souls 3 (the last DLC for this wrapped up the Souls trilogy extremely well and still left enough mystery to fill in yourself)

- Dead Cells

- Titanfall 2 (this game is still fun as shit and it's a shame nobody ever bought it)

- That giant Kingdom Hearts collection (story makes no goddamn sense but they're the only games my wife watched me play start to finish)

- Sonic Mania (Sanic was the first video game I ever played, this game made me feel like I was 6 again playing my Genesis)

- Zelda BOTW

- Super Mario Odyssey (this is the best Mario game Nintendo has made)

 

Also I've been playing a lot of Assassins Creed Origins lately since it was on sale last week and it takes a lot of cues from The Witcher. Not nearly as interesting a story but the combat is nice and tight and the world is the best Ubisoft has ever made. The year off was exactly what this franchise needed and I'm having a blast.

EA may have done us all a favor and finally tipped the boat on loot boxes as Chris Lee, a Democrat from Hawaii, is launching a state investigation into predatory practices in gaming.

 

It's been a long time coming and I think the mix of a property like Star Wars, the overstepping of EA's progression design, and just some good ol' fashion Internet mobbing finally started to get the attention of people outside the industry.

 

It looks like it's starting to sweep Europe too, so that's nice to see.

 

The counterpoint people might use against it as not gambling (which I don't agree with) is that with gambling as it's currently defined you're putting money into a pot with the known risk of receiving absolutely nothing. With loot crates you will 100% of the time receive something for your purchase even if most of the time it's garbage. I think that's splitting hairs on a technicality, but that's the fight getting rid of this shit is going to face.

I'll probably be on tomorrow around 7 or 8 pm EST. Hopefully enough people willing to do the raid are on by then.

Would anyone be up for raiding Saturday afternoon? That's the only day this week I'll be able to sink 4 straight hours in Destiny 2. I'm EST so take that into account.
