  1. If I were you I'd either get a PS3 and GT on that or a PS5 and the up and coming GT game. because the PS4 version is not fantastic (PS3 version was much better) and it demands you are online even if playing in single player which is absurd.
  2. I love 1st person games because I find them far more immersive and enjoyable than 3rd person. Games like Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 3 and 4, Kingdom come Deliverance, Deus Ex, etc are really my favourite. But even though I enjoyed games like Horizon Zero Dawn, The Witcher 3, Dragonage Inquisition, Dragon's Dogma, RDR2 etc. I just cannot feel really immersed in a game where I'm floating above and behind myself. It's like racing games. I love racing games but can only use cockpit view as I find that "I'm floating above and behind the car" view utterly absurd and unbearable.
  3. Not skipping as I've had a PS4 for years but I think you'll be in a good position when you get a PS5 because you'll have the entire PS4 library at your fingertips and you'll be able to pick up lots of classics really cheaply.
  4. It was Witcher 3, then Horizon Zero Dawn, then Kingdom come Deliverance but now I think it is Ghost of Tsushima because it was so enjoyable to play, had a wonderful story, looked stunning and didn't fill my screen with silly nonsense like minimaps and pointers showing the way etc.
  5. Sorry but I feel I have to post again on this, I just finished the game (no spoilers) and it was one of the best gaming experiences I've had in the PS4 era. The story was amazing and it moved me in ways games have not for decades. a superb game indeed in fact I'd say it was possibly one of the best games I've ever played on my PS4. Really enjoyable and entertaining experience indeed. I highly recommend it.
  6. oh dear, I'm a little scared of posting here as my unpopular opinions tend to be very very unpopular and I don't wish to be banned. but here goes and in no order:- 1:- Achievements/Trophies. I feel these are one of the worst additions to gaming in decades for several reasons: 1st they are worthless and meaningless. I mean whether you have 1 achievement or a million, it makes no difference. 2nd they actually set a bad mindset and instead of playing a game and exploring/discovering things themselves, they simply follow a 'checklist' of things to do set by the devs, hardly my idea of fun. (quite frankly one of the main reasons I bought a Nintendo Switch was because it does not have baked-in Achievements/trophies) Solution: If you must have achievements/trophies in games, give them a purpose, right now they are just pointless fluff. So have it so you can "trade in" your gamerscore or your trophies for things like money off games. Then there would be a reason to collect these silly things. 2:- Modern devs think us gamers are morons - Why is it that in most if not all new games, whenever you come across an item you can use, it has a stupid glowing halo? really devs, really? Do you think we're too stupid to figure out what items we can and can't use? and when climbing walls/cliffs. The ones you can climb up have markings or paint to show us. Again why?? it ruins the fun, discovering which areas you can climb up was good and you've taken that away from us now and it's all hand-holding and being lead by the nose. Solution: just damnwell stop it! We are not idiots, we can figure out where we can climb or what items we can pick up. even if by trial and error.. just stop it! 3:- Fps games have grown stale and boring. I used to love FPS games, both online and single player but I've not bought one in a couple of years now because they've grown so stale and same-y. If you've played one CoD game, you've pretty much played them all and that goes for the other games too. The games seem to be getting simplified or dumbed down and it's just the same cookie cutter nonsense over and over. Go back 10-15 years and you'll find shooters were (on average) vastly more enjoyable and challenging. Solution: Study older games and stop doing the same old, same old crap just because it's the lazy option and people buy it regardless 4: Single player GAAS (Games as a Service) should be banned. There is no valid reason why single player games can only be played if you are online. That is an utter joke and a scam because when the servers are shut down, your game is dead forever. okay that's understood and accepted for multiplayer games but for single player games it's despicable and repugnant. If I buy a single player game, I want to keep it and play it whenever. Heck I still have games that I bought (or were bought for me) in 1982-86 that still work and I still play from time to time. online only single player games are simply not acceptable. Solution: stop buying single player games that are online only. also Fallout 2 is still the best fallout game ever BotW was good but very empty and very boring Smash bros is one of the most dull games on the Switch indie games are 95% shovelware and 5% hidden gem Souls games are tedious and simply not enjoyable to play Mobile gaming is repugnant and rife with f2p garbage that pretends to be gameplay whilst doing nothing but bleeding the bank account of the unwary dry that's enough for now before I get into trouble. lol
  7. I'll be honest I despise things like lootboxes, season passes, microtransactions etc. I can understand that nonsense in F2P games, they have to make money somehow but when a new PS4 game is £45 and day one it has a season pass for another £20 to me that is basically a scam. They obviously cut things from the game to charge people more for it. as for lootboxes, well regardless of how you spin it, that is gambling and should be imo heavily restricted or ideally banned.When it comes to microtransactions, I loathe them and I find the name insulting. when some are £10-£30-£50-£80 there is nothing 'micro' about them. as for "time savers", that holds no water with me. if you don't have time to play the game then don't buy it. and you know, we can save the game so what's the rush? even if it takes you a year to finish a game, who cares as long as you enjoyed it? Only a fool would drop £45+ on a game and then pay extra NOT to play it. lol I have no problems with a game having expansions down the line, that's how they used to do it and that's fine as you get a decent amount of content for your money.So yeah, I dislike all that nonsense, it's greedy and quite a despicable business practice.
  8. For me, it would have to be Fat Worm Blows a Sparky. ..yes really, lol.
  9. isn't it the same every year? "oh we updated some kits and swapped some players around, that's another £45 please". I'm not a fan of yearly games, my personal opinion is that the devs are lazy and put the least amount of effort in, just feeding you features drip by drip. I am a huge F1 fan but for this reason I don't buy the F1 game every year, it's simply not worth it for a small changes they do. I get it every 2-3 years and then it feels like its worth the money. If I was a football fan, I'd do the same for Fifa.
  10. Cyclone on my Spectrum but I only played for 10 mins or so (I suck at it), if that's too short then the game I played before was Ghost of Tsushima.
  11. Thank you very much but I cannot take the credit. I really don't have the skill or the eyesight for things like fine soldering. I found a website that repair classic systems (mostly 8 bit computers like the Spectrum, C64, Amstrad CPC, BBC, Atari800 etc). they repair them and then recap them (replace the capacitors as old ones can leak and damage your motheroard). The prices are reasonable and you get it back in 3-4 weeks and it's guaranteed for a year.
  12. Simply has to be the NES. it was a groundbreaking device (okay, not as groundbreaking as the ZX Spectrum or the Commodore 64 but still, huge!)
  13. I had planned on buying the standard version (because I'm not a fan of digital as the digital games cost so much more here and other issues with digital) but right now I'm not 100% sure I will get a PS5, nothing I've seen from the trailers has really made me think "omg I must play that!" and with the ZX Spectrum Next kickstarter in progress, I'm currently trying to decide if I should get a PS5 standard or leave it for a couple of years and invest in a Spectrum Next instead.
  14. I've been gaming since my mother bought me an Atari 2600 VCS for Christmas in 1978. but bored with gaming? I don't recall it happening much but when it does I tend to spend a couple of days either reading or watching videos on youtube. but it almost never happens. Even if I get sick of a new game I'm playing and there are no new games out that I want, I just play some retro games on my restored Commodore 64 or on Mame or a ZX Spectrum emulator.
  15. Constantly, I am forever boring my wife with my gaming chat (which is mostly 8 bit 1980's era stuff) I now tend to talk until her eyes start rolling and then I quit for a bit. lol
