Every year there seems to be an endless list of games to get hyped over, and it’s honestly just becoming a bit too much to deal with at times. I don’t mind reading about upcoming releases, that’s why I enjoy your magazine so much, but whenever I watch media coverage on Youtube, etc. I always seem to end up getting sucked into an endless playlist, which ruins my future enjoyment.
I remember when I first got TES: Oblivion as a birthday surprise from my parents and having no idea what it was about. I enjoyed it, and I think having no expectation going into the game is what made it so enjoyable.
So in the future, I’ll try to get my sources exclusively from articles and magazines like yours. I can get enough information about the games I want, while still being pleasantly surprised when I play them. Thomas Nixon via email Yes, sometimes it’s good to be pleasantly surprised by a game. Everyone’s expectations
THIS ANNUAL PASS STINKS OF MONEY GRABBING. IF YOU’VE PAID FOR A GAME YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO PLAY IT FULLY.
of the Triple-A titles are so high, there’s often some disappointment when a good, but not great, game is delivered.
I love Destiny. But this new expansion has killed it for me. On top of the near £80 I paid for the base game and its two minor expansions, Bungie now expect us to pay a further £35-£70 for another expansion and something called an annual pass. This is totally unacceptable! If you want to keep playing the game you basically have no choice but to pay up and pay the higher amount too because you can’t really get the expansion and not the annual pass. And if you don’t you will get left behind.
This annual pass just stinks of money grabbing. If you’ve paid for the game you should be able to play it fully. Is this the most expensive PS4 game ever? For the whole lot it would cost me close to £150 in total. But it won’t… because I have given up. I have effectively been priced out. John Allen via email Forsaken plus the annual pass is £60, which seems a lot, but is just over £1 a week, so not bad value if you love it and get a whole 12 months’ of play from it. It’s the same as PES and FIFA players spend on each year’s game. What do other readers think? Worth it, or rip-off?
