    Is it more or less gunfighty than Rise? I finished #1 and loved it, started Rise and quickly felt like I was playing a Far Cry 3 DLC. Constant gun combat, hiding behind cover, automatic weapons, armoured enemies, explosives, weapon upgrading and crafting. I had done virtually no exploration or cool climbing and the shift left me feeling uneasy about the sequels. Haven't resumed it yet.

    Metro Exodus - played through it again with RTX on this time. Didn't notice much of difference.

    Any good? Not played the Metro games although I think I got an old one when it was free on Steam (?).

    Really? My friend and I were playing Wolfenstein Youngblood and the difference is night and day. Must be a case of good implementation.

    Probably still just as fighty, but plenty of exploring too. Bottom line, I'd definitely play it.

    They're all definitely worth taking the time to play, I just don't think RTX is anything to write home about in the last one. It doesn't take anything away from the game itself though.

    There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension. A feature-length game built on the core concept from the game jam title There Is No Game. Absolutely fantastic, and one of the best games I've played in a long time. Short, though: took me 4.7 hours, and that was with getting a little stuck on a couple of the puzzles. Still took me two months to finish, though, because I don't get much time to game these days!

    I finished SOTTR recently. It's much better than Rise, which I still haven't completed.

    Control. Man, that was buggy. Not a fan of the combat, so I won't be going back for more after the "end" - and I'm not forking out for the expansions, either, so just read the summaries on a wiki instead.
    Not sure how I feel with the game being effectively retconned as an Alan Wake sequel, and yes I found the other references in the base game. It was cute when it was an Easter egg, less so when it's canon.

    Did you not enjoy the lovecraftian atmosphere and hints?

    The story was literally the only reason I completed the game. I'm a big fan of the SCP wiki, and Control is that with the serial numbers filed off. I would have loved a puzzler/walking simulator version of the game, without - or with less, at least - the boring combat.

    Finished Senua's Sacrifice today. Enjoyed that - looking forward to the sequel!

    I thought it was incredibly samey.
    Hardly any variety beyond the central 'teleport here and there and fight crash test dummies' premise.
    Massively overhyped in my view.

    Yeah, the game was boring. The lore was fun. It'd have made a good TV miniseries, or - as mentioned upthread - a decent puzzler/walking simulator. Worth fighting through, I think, but I'm glad I got it on Game Pass and didn't pay £60 or whatever new-release games cost these days.

    Does it hold up throughout, quality-wise? The opening really grabbed me but I wondered how repetitive it might get and whether the story would be satisfying or not, given its low budget and small dev team.

    I thought it did a good job. The story's interesting, though the ending is blatant sequel-bait - and to get the "true" ending you have to have every single one of the collectables, and I can't be faffed to replay it to find all of those so I'll just watch the bit I missed on YouTube instead. It does a good job of mixing gameplay styles, with the fighting broken up by puzzle sections, a stealth section that somehow didn't annoy the crap out of me like most stealth sections do, and stuff like that, to keep things fresh. I'd definitely say to stick with it if you found the opening strong.
