LTTP: Mad Max (2015) - The Game That Time Forgot. AKA Don't Release Same Day As MGS V.

its my favourite game. 4k 60fps on xsx now thanks to fps boost. also the best apocalyptic setting ever. those duststorms are so crazy good and the car mechanics as well
Wow wtf are you serious. Pisses me off the PS% can't handle it. One of these days when I upgrade my PC I'll be able to do this though.

Mad Max sat on my ps4 for like 2 years after it was free on PS+. I finally deleted it because my hd was full. Might have to redownload it now! Good to hear it's better than MGS5, for some reason that game didn't grip me, even tho I love MGS. How's the platinum for Mad Max?

Might not be a good fit. The previous gen version was cancelled because they couldn't make the draw distance work (2+ kilometers with correct sound propagation). It's all about vast deserts with camps and convoys in the distance. That feeling of being alone in a gigantic empty landscape might not translate well to a handheld. There is overwhelming beauty and melancholia in its emptiness.
Don’t listen to this. Got it on steam to play exclusively on the Deck and I’m having a blast. Runs great too.
Always wanted to tackle this as I previously owned it on ps4 but couldn’t be bothered.
It’s checklisty nature translates well to handheld play.

I had this on PS4 and even before WB took it down the platinum was unachievable. The photo collecting trophy (iirc) was bugged and showed 149/150 something. You had to inspect each and every one item as soon as you get to have the system register it. Played it two times and encountered the same bug again.

Top class game I platinumed. But fuck me it launched on a bad date. I bought MGSV Day 1 and platinumed it over 2 month's. Didn't know anything about mad Max until I gave it a try on a 10 dollar sale. MGSV Just stole it's thunder.

Just played a few hours of it. It's like a Far Cry game with a Fallout and/or Borderlands vibe, plus batman-esque combat. It borrows a lot of game mechanics without going too deep. A nice and simple game made for FUN without all the globohomo forced into it. It reminds me of Red Faction Armageddon in some ways. Thanks for the recommend OP!

Game look amazing, runs amazing, extremely well optimized on PC (it probably does 60 fps on the Deck also). The combat is simple and satisfying, very Arkham like. Completely tasks and upgrading stuff all the time is satisfying.

My only complaint is that the fastest car is unlocked 30 min before you finish this 40-50 hour game. There are ways getting the fastest car early, but you wouldn't know that on your first playthrough.

I played it at 3200x1800, 120 fps, on a 5700 XT / R5 3600. Terrific performance.

As much as the combat and driving were top notch its by far one of the most soulless typical repetitive avalanche games out there
 
i can't remember when i first watched fury road but it wasn't any time near when it came out. i always meant to go and play the game but never got around to it. not sure i ever will. looks a lot of fun though. the movie is a masterpiece and i'm exciting for Furiosa with Anya Taylor Joy :messenger_smiling_hearts:

edit: and holy shit looking at the casting Tom Burke is going to be Dementus.

Rage 1 and 2.
lol i remember being excited for Rage 2. it looked like a Mad Max/Doom mix up.

Funny that this thread was bumped, because I just finished the game a few days ago. I bought it around launch but just never played it until now.

I had a decent time with it. I'd probably rate it somewhere in the high 7's. Fun combat (both melee and car), but bogged down by extremely repetitive and barebones open world activities
