I dont play tons of games, which explains why it felt like that. When i heard about mgs and splinter cell situation, i kinda lost my desire to play other games seriously. These days is just me and gamepass trying different stuff, then deleting them. While sony, went and bought their exclusive. So far, i cant get in to them.You definitely sound like the minority lol.
If Starfield is any good I might get it, but currently I know nothing about it. Horizon I definitely will buy because I've played the first one, it's a big open world (with side quests and errands, and the ability to roam and hunt), and a ton of weapons and approaches toward combat. And it's Guerilla Games which means it will be a technical showcase - one thing we know isn't the case for Bethesda.
