I wasn't as involved back then tbh. Im a long time lurker, but literally I made an account on GAF just because the SONY hypocrisy reached a level that I couldn't stomach and I wanted to provide a unbiased opinion to correlate. Basically they were so bad that a console agnostic made an account because I wanted to respond to some of the hypocrisy. I have a PS4 Pro and an Xbox One X and Switch (in additikn to my gaming rig). I double dipped on Death Stranding and God of War 4 was my favorite game this generation. That said, I in no way regret my Xbox or Switch purchases either and had a great time. Honestly I think your pro SONY stance might make you a little immune to just how bad the SONY fanboy problem is. Just look at the battle toads review thread for a recent insight.
i only watched the dreamcast guys review, from it, he was pretty disappointed and scored the game extremely low, he played the original and scored it a 5.5 out of 10. he seems pretty honest to me.
Did not bother to look at the review thread here, the game is not my cup of tea really. so I just let it be.
there are fanboys all over the place, but there are definitely some extremists out there.
