It's not like that'd be a consideration anyways - the original versions of Blood Money and Absolution are backwards compatible on the XB1 as well. Having the games that aren't available would be more of a selling point.

Anyone still have games sitting unopened on their shelves that they didn't just get recently? I mean I have Spiderman still unopened but I just got that over Christmas and I want to finish Red Dead first. The worst one is that I still have Shadows Of Mordor 2 still in plastic on the shelf and I got that about a month after it came out.

I got Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction about eight years ago for £2.99 on a misprice and still haven't opened it. I hadn't played the old Ratchet games and was going to play through all of them first, but I only ended up finishing the first one. Maybe I'll get to it one day.

Skyrim on PS4 is at the bottom of my To Play pile still unopened. It's been there for like two years.

I've got a hell of a lot of PS4 games that I traded other games out for that I just haven't touched. Infamous Second Son, Uncharted Collection, Heavy Rain & Beyond Two Souls... it's kinda terrible, but I also didn't really spend any money on any of them directly so I don't feel too bad about it. There's also Agents of Mayhem, Last Of Us, Wipeout and Destiny which I did pay real money for and haven't touched at all. Oops.

So playing Deus Ex Invisible War.

Why do people not realize that Tracer Tong is manipulating the Dentons just like everyone else?

Finished Invisible War. Is it weird that I actually liked this better than the original DE? The gameplay was way too simplistic but the story was much better as the actual pros and cons of each organization were well fleshed out instead of the "UNATCO is evil because The Rockefellers were evil, and we're not going to actually explain what was so bad about them we're just going to keep mentioning how they bankrolled the UN" bullshit of the original.

I eventually sided with the Dentons because they were least worst option which is saying a lot because Tracer Tong is someone who I never trusted for a second.

I also probably made an unorthodox choice in that I ended up going against the Illuminati (I was pro WTO for a bit, though), but tried to keep the Illuminati's existence close to my chest even as I decided to stick with JC's plan. It was in in-character choice, as it would have made sense to keep the Illuminati thinking I was on their side as long as possible.

Also the hacking biomods were so absurdly OP it wasnt even funny.

Far Cry 5 went on sale and I picked it up to play it again - one of the only times I've done that to a game that I've beat in quite a long time.

Maybe I'm a weirdo but I don't understand people who sell/trade their games after they've beaten them. I love to have them on the shelf...even if I never play them again.

Yeah, more or less. I have way too much stuff as it is. There are very few games I sell and then start regretting it down the line.

I'm in a similar position to Rocky, I buy games but I have a backlog the size of a small Rhode Island city.

I’m the opposite. I buy games I won’t play. It’s terrible.

That's kind of my issue to. I never really beat games that often. Out of the 25-30 games I have on my shelf, I think I"ve beaten 4. I'll have every intention of beating them but then another shiny new toy comes along and I tend to drop the one I'm playing for it. Then it repeats. I'm not a guy who really likes digital games either. I'd just much rather have the physical copy.

Maybe not a weirdo, but maybe a hoarder. 😛 

I absolutely trade in something if I know I'm never playing it again. I have no reason whatsoever of keeping it around.

Possibly :P But it's about the only thing I could classify as "hoarder" behavior. Everything else can go but my video games have to stay.

If I beat a game that is very linear with not a lot of replay value or reason to come back later, I can normally get the full value or 60% or more back. I'll then use that to buy a game that I WOULD want to come back to or take a lot longer to beat, or just get credit to go towards DLC for something that I bought along those lines earlier.

I tend to keep games that I LOVE (Final Fantasy, Persona, Red Dead, etc...)... but usually trade in towards other games once I'm done. Reduces clutter. Like, I'm probably gonna trade Spiderman here in the next little bit.

With Rocksteady currently working on the Superman game, which I hope will play in the same vein as the Arkham series, what other heroes would you like to see them do a game for? I know that the movie industry is being saturated with super hero stuff but I'm never sick of it because I love this shit.

For me, I'd really love to see them do something with Green Arrow. We could get some fun stuff story wise and it would be fun running around with a bow. When I started playing WoW, it was because I wanted to play as a Hunter who used bows. I'd love it incorporated into a super hero game.

There is a new Power Rangers game coming out but it's a fighting game, and I'm really not into those. I've never gotten into the Injustice games because of this too.

As in Open World action games with Metroidvania elements?

Off the top of my head...

The Punisher

The Phantom

Deathstroke The Terminator (sure not a hero, but)

Ghost Rider

Zatanna

The Spirit

The tie in games weren't utter awful (they were pretty bad though), but a game based on Iron Man could be a fun romp. Although it would really lack that 'down to earth' feel because you're zipping around with an arsenal in your powered suit, so it might be tough to build an engrossing world around it.

Another one that might be fun would be Hawkeye, the badass normal hero without a super suit or superpowers. Just a former carny who has elite accuracy and has a bow that can shoot all sorts of trick arrows. It would fall into the same idea as Green Arrow sans the bankroll, but maybe based around either his exploits outside of Avenger-ing, or base it around SHIELD.

Heck, maybe a game based around (Agents of) SHIELD would be pretty neat too, it would have plenty of options for spy stuff, action stuff, bigger 'world threatening' dangers but also the more smaller ground level stuff. And there's quite a few characters you could slot into leading roles.

Personally I'd like a game where you can create your own superhero without being an MMO.

Rocksteady is apparently not working on a Batman game.

No, they're doing Superman. Or at least that's the last thing I read on the subject although they've kept it pretty close to the chest.

Edit: Nevermind...I just read the article and I assume you meant Superman anyway. Well now I'm just sad about the whole thing. :(

Sorry. I meant Superman. 

Rumors are it is a superhero game, but no affiliation to any existing IP.
