Servers I end up on are generally around the 40-60ms mark. Typically kiwis and kangaroos.

I have had PSVR for a while, was hanging out for the Doom VFR release, only to have the biggest disappointment ever (I think VFR stands for Very Fail Rippoff) so I kinda went off PSVR and stopped gaming for a while, apart from some occasional Gran Tourismo.


After seeing this discussion I went back to my PC and spent a long evening remembering how to play CSGO.  It can be fun, depending on the crowd at the time.  If there are at least a few people giving intel and directions the teamplay can be great.  If they are all just messing around, playing music clips over the mic, and other distracting noise, it gets pointless.


I think a few hours of CSGO after work on a Friday will continue to be a good way to start the weekend.  I also jump back into CSS for some wild rounds of GunGame, when a server is active, but I need some warm-up time to be ready for that :)
