BDO, best ongoing grindfest of boredom

The only ones on those listings that even have my curiousity slightly peaked is Elden Ring and Age of Empires.

But I gotta be honest. I'm kind of surprised this is where we are. These games don't really scream 'exciting innovation' and 'fascinating' to me.

Elden Ring will be a flop

Then Bamco wil acquire SEGA and From Software will be forced to work on animu games with thicc waifus and gacha.
