    I should probably play the Half Life games at some point, huh? I think I played one of them on Xbox (The Orange Box), but I don't remember anything.

    At least HBO will let it stay as visceral as it is.

    HBO has to be butthurt over passing on the walking dead.
    I have no hopes for this to be good, as most game adaptations turn out about as good as Ewe Boll can attempt, which is not saying much. If it’s good I’ll be throughly happy.

    I think this has the potential to be better than the Walking Dead. Walking Dead was great for the first season but became mediocre after that, and eventually was unwatchable for me.

    HBO makes quality shows. A lot of the greatest shows of all time are from their network. Oz, Sopranos, The Wire, GOT, etc. When they make a show you usually get a certain movie quality that most networks don’t reach. Beyond Better Call Saul/Breaking Bad, AMC doesn’t reach HBO’s overall quality.

    The Last of Us could be a hit for them and they’re still looking to offset the loss of GOT. Westworld is good but not enough. They need more quality shows. The storyline is way better and more believable than Walking Dead. If they throw money at it then I expect a hit.

    Most game adaptions suck because they aren’t given the budget of big movies, and networks like HBO usually don’t pick them up. Resident Evil for example had everything you need to make a great movie but didn’t have the right people making it. The Witcher shows what you can do if you have the right producers and budget. Naughty Dog does nothing but quality, and I don’t think they’d let someone take this on unless they think it will be done with that same quality.

    Oh it could absolutely be much better than the walking dead. I only pointed it out because I thought it was a little funny that they turned down a zombie show, what 9 years ago now, and are kind of doing a “zombie” show now.
    The walking dead has been hot garbage for a few years now but it’s still a money making powerhouse.

    I need time off from work.

    There are a bunch of metroidvania games to play that look great that are still sitting in the queue. Dead Cells. Hollow Knight. Celeste. Shovel Knight. etc.

    I hope you do find time. The bolded especially were absolutely tremendous. Both would easily make my top 10 of the decade, Shovel Knight maybe breaking the top 3. It's so damn difficult, but not in overly obscured ways. It's a fine line to make a game challenging but not feel unfair and they knocked that aspect out of the park in a game with unlimited lives.

    I finally beat Metro Exodus and all of the DLC. I really did enjoy it. Sam's Story was quite good.

    Almost everything on a console in the last 20 years and every shooter since Goldeneye. :laugh:

    I really don't play that many different games. I'm just super interested in things or not at all, so when one comes up that does get me, I try to learn it inside and out. I like difficult and deep, even if the complexity is beneath the surface like Binding of Isaac. It's mostly various styles of RPGs and roguelikes or weird ones like Return of the Obra Dinn.

    It's going to be a Blitz or NFL Street kind of game, I think, based off of the non-simulation part.

    I loved Iconoclasts on PS4 and I see that Xbox just released the Ori sequel which I can't wait to play. Yoku's island Expres was a cool Metroidvania/pinball hybrid.
