    Yeah I got the whole collection. I played a little of it on a friends PS4 but it was only one night while I updated his game for him. My friends online mostly play Division, Destiny, GTA5 and a few are playing Ghost Recon and Battlefield 1. I played the Battlefield 1 beta and just didn't care for it much. I'm also not much of a FPS gamer. I like playing Division in the Dark Zone and the Incursions. I've been playing Division since release day. Starting to really get into GTA 5 as long as I can play with a friend online. I just enjoy the games a lot more if I'm playing with someone else I know.

    I've also got Forza 5 but I just can't get into it. Driving games suck using a controller anyway.

    Watch dogs is kinda fun sometimes. Haven't played the second one yet though.

    We've got a Wii U too and I like playing Splatoon on it.

    Never played Forza 5, but Forza Horizon 3 is the best driving game out there...for those who enjoy driving games.

    Have them all. Haven't been able to get into any of them. 3 of the 4 are serious time sink games, but I also usually get bored playing alone. Shorter campaigns, I can handle. Enjoyed both Tomb Raider games, Mad Max, Arkham Knight, all of the CoD campaigns I've played, BF4 campaign, and Titanfall 2 campaign.

    Good news for you...sequels coming in the near future for 2 of those games you mentioned. I may play RDR2, but I feel like I would need to go back and complete the first one and I just get bored playing it.

    34 and feel like the gaming is falling off for me but it doesn't bother me. Frustrated with how often I need to download things just to play a game (not extra content). Couple that with a slow internet connection for online play/downloading and here I am. I'm sure someday it will bounce back but for now I'm content doing other things.

    Another Uncharted game is coming out in a few months as well. I think they planned it as a DLC for Uncharted 4 at first, but it grew into a standalone game. I'm stoked for it, but I'm wondering how it'll be without Nathan Drake and Sully...

    I miss the days of my console not being a 24/7 marketing device. I get it from a business perspective but I'm tired of it. We have radio internet out here and it does the same. I can watch Netflix most of the time which is nice but there are times of the day where it drops and is no longer enjoyable waiting for loading

    I strictly play 1P games and never online. Most of the gaming I play is in the winter when it's too cold to do anything else. In the summer it gets too busy with house/car projects, summer events and vacations. As I get older I get attached to only a few games and only play those and when I complete it I just wait till the followup game comes out, not really interested in anything new unless it's from the same developers.

    Feel ya. I was a semi-avid gamer. Really got into the division, COD and battlefield. Dunno what happened but yea i got bored. Haven't touched one in a few months. Maybr as the heat kicks in ill be forced to stay indoors and in the Ac. Winter in cali though is desert season and lots of outdoor shit for us to do. Would be a shame if the console just sat there lol.

    I play on Xbox, but I did pick up a PS4 on Black Friday last year because there are exclusives I was interested in. It came with Uncharted 4 and they had the Uncharted Collection on sale for around $10-$15, so I bought it, too. I also bought TLOU on sale and a game called Until Dawn. I have to tell you, Until Dawn is not the type of game I would typically play but I loved it! I started on TLOU and was enjoying it but got sucked back into Destiny on Xbox to help a friend who picked it up in December. Long story short, PS4 began collecting dust and I sold it a couple of months ago.

    Now that I'm in this rut, I'm kinda regretting that decision. I will say a couple of things about Xbox One vs PS4. Install times are dramatically slower on PS4. Also sucks that if you own a physical copy of a game and decide to purchase a digital copy, you have to completely reinstall the game. (I did this with Until Dawn when digital was on sale). Not the case with Xbox. I didn't like the controller "as much", but there were pros and cons. It felt smoother to use, less "clicky" than the Xbox controller, and Until Dawn made use of shaking it like you would a flashlight to get the in game flashlight batteries going. The touch pad was pretty cool, too. The light on the controller was annoying and pointless. There are a lot of advantages I could go into in favor of Xbox but that should be another thread. I may yet pick up another PS4 down the road, especially since I own several digital titles already.

    I think a lot of it also has to do with what your social circle is doing. If my buddy calls me up to play golf or go mountain biking, no way in hell i'm gonna pass that up to keep playing a game. But if no one calls me (or accepts my invitation) you better believe i'll be spending some time playing some kick ass games.

    I've been really getting into indie games lately as well. My PC is a little dated now but I was really into Dota 2 for a while (have close to 2k hours I think) and although I loved playing that game and earning unlocks I got really burnt out on the negative vibes from team mates. So using my ps4 I started watching the ps store sales and now I've accrued over 80 games. Some of my favorites were basically walking movies, like Firewatch, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Gone Home, Oxenfree, and even Life is Strange, granted that one had me cringing at the awkward characters sometimes.
