    I'd probably still go with the Pro, because you can play other exclusives like The Last of Us 2 and Spider-Man.

    Playing on an Xbox One X. Game is beautiful.

    Gonna be a slow burn for me. Probably take a long time to beat.

    From the gameplay I've watched, it's a pretty slow-moving game to begin with so that approach makes sense.

    Very.

    Took me better part of a year to beat The Witcher 3. Treating this the same. Taking breaks to play other shit. Couple hours here, there. So far, it's great, though.

    How's Odyssey? Looking to grab that Black Friday.

    Loving it. It's very much an Ubisoft game, in that they just throw everything and the kitchen sink at you, but there's just so much to do that I'm rarely bored.

    Game is gorgeous too. I mean, it's not Red Dead 2 pretty, but you can see shit like this:

    I'd say that it's a nice complement to Red Dead's simplistic, realistic, natural beauty. It's wild and over the top but it's just a goddamn joy to look it. Also, the character models, faces, and hair are superior to Red Dead's, although as I mentioned in a previous post that's really the only edge

    Just picked up this game last night and let it install overnight. Looking forward to deep diving into it.

    I think it is going to take me like 100hrs to beat this game. I know its a 60hr game to beat the story, but this seems like such a slow paced game that I have no idea when I'll get to the online portion of this game.

    Same for me. Really enjoying it. You find some cool shit just exploring the world. I am a little disappointed I can't bang prostitutes. They are everywhere and they clearly want my balls, but I can't give it to them.

    This is probably one of the best games I’ve played in... well, ever. The amount of detail is just amazing. I find myself postponing the story to do other activities and explore.

    Finished the story all up today - easily the best game I've ever played in my life and it's not even close. Seriously.

    I'm a bit mad at myself because the story got so good towards the end that I started just going mission to mission instead of continuing to explore the world, hunt, fish, and do other side missions, so now I'm going to restart the game and stay in Chapter 2 for probably a few months just so I can really enjoy the game on a slow burn now.

    But holy shit. This game was absolutely phenomenal. One that I'll remember 20-30 years from now. Excited for the Online.

    Does the world stay open after the story is done?

    Just a few hours in but wow. So happy I got this instead of Fallout 76. Which sounds like a garbage fire right now
