I stopped at FM 11. That was enough detail for me. All the pre match media stuff had to be turned off, and I only wanted to talk to the papers to slag off Steve Kean, who I made Burnley manager with the ability of 1 in everything.

 

Is that remake of Final Fantasy 7 out yet? If so, is it any good?

Constantly getting delayed. I have bought every FF since 7 and haven't finished 1. Played 15 and thought it stank. Think I will leave the remake be. Will only lead to disappointment

What's everyone's game of 2018?

For me, it's either Nier: Automata or Bayonetta 2 (Switch port). Ok, I know technically Nier came out in 2017 but I'm playing catch-up. There's still a lot of titles that I haven't played yet (RDR2, Horizon Zero Dawn, Uncharted 4, Spider-Man, Last Guardian etc.) Too many games, so little time...

Mine is Bloodborne, but I too am playing catch up big time. Played none of Spiderman, god of war , red dead etc

Just started Uncharted 4 and it's pretty good 

Played the Nier Demo and really liked it

For me it is Red Dead Redemption 2, closely followed by Celeste, Spiderman and God of War.  I thought 2017 was a good year for gaming but 2018 has taken things to a whole new level.

Also on PSVR there are some brilliant experiences in Astro Bots, Beat Sabre VR, Tetris Effect and Farpoint.  Those games alone justify the PSVR purchase.

I’ve not really played any, but been playing  fair bit of Red Dead and really enjoying it so far.

Persona 5 for me. Had no expectations for it at all going in, just bought it because it was on sale and had rave reviews. Ended up sinking over 100 hours in it, which I never do with games these days. Probably the most fun I've had playing a JRPG since FF7, which was a very long time ago.

I ended up getting Beat Saber on Oculus as you can import new songs and maps with a mod. You can also create your own map but it takes a ton of time. Really fun game though. I just bought Astro Bot on sale so will be getting into that shortly!

Ok, that's it. After I finish Uncharted 4 and Dark souls 3, I am moving onto Nier automata and Persona!

I certainly recommend it. One of the big plus points to me was Persona having a traditional turn based battle system. It's old school these days but that's what I prefer. 

One nitpick I do have, and something to keep in mind if/when you pick it up, is that if the main character dies in battle then it's a total game over - even if all of your other party members are alive. Doesn't make much sense to me and caught me out on a couple of occasions. Apparently it's always been that way in the Persona games though.

Ok, noted. Not enough turn based RPGs these days. The combat in FF15 was frankly a clusterfuck. The entire game was ruined by it. If they had have just had turn based battles, the rest of the game would have been tolerable. Did you play it? Brought a whole new meaning to  the term "grinding" in RPGs 

I am hearing great things about Octopath traveler from people whose opinions I would respect around these types of games. I won't be buying a switch to play it anytime soon though.  I bought a Wii U and whilst some games were great, it had many, many issues. Have you played Breath of the wild?

Nah never really had any desire to pick up FF15. In all honesty the only FF games I really enjoyed were 6, 7 and 8. The games pre-6 are too grindy for me. I got bored of 9 very quickly and only got about half way through 10. I own 12 (PS4 remaster) and 13 but haven't gotten around to playing either of them. Persona 5, for me, has just about the right mix of old school elements mixed in with newer, innovative mechanics. Plus the graphics/presentation and soundtrack are just sublime. I always play with Japanese VA + subtitles so can't comment on the dubbed voices.

I don't own a Wii U or Switch so never played Breath of the Wild. I bought Wind Waker for the Gamecube a while back and really need to play that. Haven't played Link to the Past either, which I am told I really should. Not to mention the N64 titles. I've missed out on huge chunks of the Zelda franchise.

I currently have 3; Breath of the wild, Dark souls 3 and Uncharted 4. 

Is this normal? 

I've usually got one game going at any one time, although sometimes it'll be an RPG supplemented by something like Football Manager or a VR game every so often. Is mostly due to the lack of general free time I have though.

Any Civilization VI fans here? #onemoreturn

I used to love it along with Age of Empires and Football manager back when I was a student  I wouldn't have the time to sink into any of them now.

Normal for me. Depending on my mood/time available, I switch between Elite: Dangerous, Just Cause 3, and MGS V. It would be four if I could remember to put my Fallout 4 disc in the PS 😅

Got to be RDR2 or Spider-Man for me. Both games I couldn’t wait to carry on! Still only at the end of Ch3 in RDR2 but it’s mind-blowingly good.

Two point hospital on pc best game of the year for me. 

Basically a spiritual sequel to theme hospital and by the original developers as well.

Loved the original. Is this on PS4?

Currently £25 on Steam. Think I'll wait for the winter sale. Looks great, though.

Just ordered Final Fantasy Origins for the PS1 off eBay (because I have a compulsion to start wasting money I don't have during Christmas season) - I think it completes the mainline Final Fantasy PS1 games for me?

FF Origins
FF Anthology
FF6/FF7/FF8/FF9

I know technically Tactics and Chocobo Racing exist on the PS1, but to my knowledge Tactics (criminally) didn't come out in the EU on the PS1 and Chocobo Racing is so stupidly expensive it's not even worth trying to get.
