    I'm probably going to wait until all the ff7 episodes are out to start it. Seems like bloating midgar is just a cash grab idea....

    Is anyone playing NBA 2K20 during this NBA downtime due to COVID-19? Will be glad when NBA gear back up but in the meantime NBA 2k20 will do.

    Vamsi_Nalluri - Employee alert Lol dude either you are owner of UBI or youre high.
    Games You listed are all most boring of eight generation consoles. Especially Far Cry Primal, damn it was one pointless, boring, idiotic game.
    And theyre nowhere near the best games of 8 gen, with score ratings +- 7/10
    Just try to compare any of Ubi games to The Witcher 3, Ni-Oh, Nier, GTA, Overwatch, Diablo 3, Uncharted, Titanfall 2 and the list goes on...
    And to prove my point - check the best alltime ps4 games by metascore - in the first 100 there is 1 (!) game from ubi, and its re-release from last gen Rayman Legends... Wow i didn't realize that the ubi games got that bad. Last truly great game from Your company was Far Cry 3.
    Cheers

    Really excited for these releases, i'm waiting to play some of these
