    ARx182 got a reaction from StaceyPowers in Gaming good for mental health   
    Gaming is a source of entertainment, ofcourse it’s good for your mental health. It’s a way to escape all real life worries for some. Ofcourse, if you’re addicted, it can be damaging to your mental health, but the same applies to an addiction to anything. The problem in that case is the addiction itself, not gaming.

    I used to play on a 32 inch TV on my PS4. But like @ARx182 , I prefer my laptop screen or monitor.

    ARx182 got a reaction from StaceyPowers in What game will you never play again?   
    Every FIFA game prior to the release of FIFA 21. I usually throw away old FIFA games once the new one is released, it improves (even if it's minor) every year so why play the old ones again. 😝

    I don't think it's underrated it deserves to be rated lower as it is worse than Rise of the Tomb Raider, and The first reboot Tomb Raider as well. If you enjoyed Shadow of the Tomb Raider, you should play those too.

    ARx182 reacted to 22_22 in Why are gamers so interested in review scores?   
    I do not think you should take these reviews so seriously as they are not anything more than another persons subjective opinion. What you may dislike, I may in fact enjoy and vice versa. I think the safest option is to play a demo version of the game to see how you feel and if you like the game play. That is what I do. Then if this is still insufficient I will check out some videos of game play on YouTube because you can actually see the game being played and make up your own mind, before a potentially expensive investment.

    ARx182 got a reaction from Crazycrab in Who will win the next Console War PS5 or Xbox X series ?   
    Ah, my bad. I completely missed the ‘if you already have a PC’ part. You’re right, if you already have a PC, it really isn’t worth getting the Xbox Series X. It’s almost as if Microsoft have set up the Xbox Series X to be the inferior console in the next console war.

    ARx182 reacted to Crazycrab in Who will win the next Console War PS5 or Xbox X series ?   
    You've completely missed my point here.  It's more finacilly viablee to wait a little and buy but an XBox Series X or a PS5 then build a PC right now, I've said so myself.  My point if you already have hardware capable of playing and/or streaming these “exclusive” games then you don’t need the new XBox.
    Take me for example, I already have a PC that is a rough match for Next Gen (so I KNOW how expensive they are, lol) so I don’t need the new XBox.  I am considering the PS5 because the exclusives on that platform actually are… exclusive.  Like I said before, I applaud Microsoft for this approach with Play Anywhere and Game Pass because it is more consumer friendly than what Sony (and Nintendo) do, but they are to some degree shooting themselves in the foot with it.
    I will take this opertunity to re-itterate my point that if you are considering building or buying a PC right now, wait till next year.  PC components always get a step up after new consoles release.

    ARx182 reacted to Shagger in What game genre has evolved most over time?   
    The only way FIFA has evolved is how the game has embraced and mastered "gambling for kids" and the worst business practices that in the industry has to plague us with. Improved visuals over years, especially when jumping to new console generations, is something to expect, not to praise. That's not innovation.
    I've done a little research, and it turns out EA has used no less than three different game engines for FIFA over the last decade (Frostbite, Impact and Ignite) and I bet not one fan has noticed the difference. That's because all that they do to develop the next game is update team rosters and shirt designs etc, then just copy and paste the same game with the aforementioned minor detail changes then sell it. This has even caused bugs in the past because the coding that works with one engine isn't necessarily compatible with other.
    The worst part is that, deep down, the fans know this about EA Sports (Not just FIFA), but don't seem to care. They'll still buy this bullshit year after year fully aware of just how lacklustre an effort went into it.

    The Travis Scott concert on Fortnite was really cool. It didn’t make me emotional but I really enjoyed the music so in a sense it may have. It was a brilliant idea by Epic Games. Would love to see something like it again!

    I cannot honestly claim to be insanely good at any video game. I am just glad I am past the days of my youth where I was insanely bad at almost every game I tried.

    ARx182 reacted to The Blackangel in Future consoles?   
    Granted their heyday has passed, but I still think they are the top dog, with PS in second and Xbox at number 3. The sales that I personally witness, have told me that. I'm not saying those are the actual figures on the actual worldwide scale. I'm just saying that from what I see people buy. A lot ask me about systems when I'm in the gaming department at Walmart. Or when I go to GameStop and the people working there are busy enough that they can't get to the customer. I tell them what I know, and my opinions, and they go from there.
    Everyone has their preferences, and that's the best thing about gaming. It keeps the world diverse and gets unique things and experiences out there. Personally I have been a Nintendo chick since the NES. With a couple exceptions. I hated the Wii. I wasn't the biggest fan of Game Cube, but I played it some. Mainly Zelda Four Swords and Soul Calibur 2.

    I'm not much on the technical aspect either. As long as the machine does what it's supposed to do, that's all I care about.
    If this was still the Win98 era, I could build a kickass computer. But that era is long gone, and I don't know shit about computers anymore. I'm lucky I can turn the damn thing on.

    ARx182 reacted to Shagger in Is There A Platform You're Just Not Interested In?   
    The problem with the Wii is that it's not 4rth best-selling home console of all time, it's the worlds best-selling dust collector. Parents bought it for family to enjoy at parties, then it spends the rest of life in a cupboard somewhere. It's a level of casual only appeal that makes mobile gaming look like Dungeons and Dragons. Everyone bought the console, but nobody played it, and if need to I can even prove it. You see, I've doing some maths, and based on sales totals of every game that sold 1 millions units or more for the Wii, the average Wii owner owned less than four games for the system, and that includes Wii Sports, a game that bundled with every console outside of Japan. People call it a success, but just wasn't.

    Hi, I'm ARx182, but you can also call me Abdul.
    I'm not a hardcore gamer but I do my fair share of gaming, I grew up playing on my PSP/PS2/Xbox 360 playing the same game most of the time: Fifa but I do also play other games; GTA San Andreas, Liberty City, IV and V just to name a few of the GTA titles that I have played.
    Anyway, it's good to be here. The forum looks really good! 😜
