I'm not going to go for the platinum of FF7 Remake. I have max level characters, and tried the first chapter. It's so boring. The fights just feel arbitrarily longer. I already thought the last...

Interesting, I feel the opposite, but that's probably just due to what I am used to using. I feel like a mouse and keyboard for gaming is like using a bomb disposal robot and a keyboard feels like...

I just got to the last chapter. Plan to platinum. The chinup challenge wasn't nearly as hard as the internet made it sound. I saw people call it "the real final boss."

I've come to the realization that FF7 Remake is largely what I wanted Kingdom Hearts 3 to be. I don't mean in story, but in style, execution, characters, combat, etc.

Stardew runs on in-game clock and not real life clock, right? So, if you turn it off for a day, it's the same as turning it off for a month?

Thanks for the info! So, Year 2 made it way more difficult than Year 1. Then they made it easier in Year 3, but not as easy as Year 1. Cool.

Anyone still playing Destiny 2? Upgrade dlc to get Forsaken and Shadowkeep was cheap. I enjoyed the game play and thought more story missions would be fun.

Depends what you want. Fallout 4 is another big, open world game, but not as good as HZD. Battlefield 1 is a reasonable length game. I'm not convinced that MHW has an end.

So, I think FF7 is mediocre. The story is meh, the game play is ok, etc. It was a decent FF game, but I never got the hype (like, I enjoyed FF1 more than FF7). But HOLY COW, FF7 Remake is...
