I hope it's "story huge" and not "busy work" huge.



Huge map area apparently - if nothing else.

@gehenna Interested to know how much of Spiderman you thought was busy work?

 

Other than the secret photos, I didn't resent much of what I was set to do, and one thing I liked, was that I could see everything that needed to be done and could use it like a checklist.

@networkn yeah games like Spider-man and God of War really made the side activities quite fun and they enhanced the story.  Games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider annoy me when the side activities are just "I lost the thing please find the thing", and to cross off that activity you just have to go somewhere and pick something up or something benignly boring like that.  It makes no difference to the story or to your abilities.  That's the sort of busy work I mean.

I need to go and finish God of War. I am quite distractable. 

 

Restarted Tomb Raider from scratch so I could play it on the big screen. I am not super loving it the second time through. I'll give it another 2-3 hours and then pull the pin if it's not picking up.

Funny you mention that, I'm planning to restart SotTR and playing through again.  I feel like I was a bit distracted the first time (just had surgery a couple weeks ago so my head wasn't in the game, no pun intended).  That usual point of no return in a game where a NPC says "are you sure you want to start this mission, you won't be able to fast travel until it's finished" seemed to come around way too quickly.  So much so I still haven't played that bit yet and just went off to do some busy work to feel like I was getting value out of the game :)  I'll restart it and do a few more tombs in the areas I progress through before moving to the next area, that should pad out the gameplay time a bit more.  At least at the end I'll be completely sure whether it's just a crappy short game or not.

 

Also - God of War..... game of the year IMO (possibly the game of the decade for me).  I've played it through about 5 times since launch, I absolutely LOVE it.  It set the bar VERY high, which is possibly why SotTR feels like it falls short in comparison.

Wow 5 times! I mean I really like it, like you say, potential for GOTY, though Spiderman was excellent so far too, but I expect to not touch it after I finish it.

Just found this preview/review. I think it’s very good - quite thoughtful:

Apparently, there are multiple studios working on this. I am wondering how complex it can be before it undoes itself. I am wondering if it can possibly live up to the hype. Some of the scenarios seem to indicate it's going to be more of a social experiment than game and that there are a never ending list of scenarios and things to take into account. I hope it doesn't ruin the game. 

 

It feels a little westworldy in some ways.

If you watch the video in the link I posted immediately above - and watch the whole thing, I think you may find your mind will be put at rest. Don’t worry - be happy.

It's funny you say that, my comments were based on watching that video :)

 

I am all for reasonably fleshed out games, big ones with lots of FUN things to do, however, I must say, that there is a limit. Primarily I want a game not a life simulator.

Yeah - the possible necessity to eat and maybe bathe occasionally also concerns me - could become a drag.

So the install size is slightly bigger and slightly less, depending on how you install it.

 

 

 

Disc Installation:

 

 

  • PS4 - 99 GB installation space
  • Xbox One - 107 GB installation space

Digital Installation:

 

  • PS4 - 99 GB installation space with an additional 50GB for the installation process
  • Xbox One - 107 GB installation space

They tried this in a GTA game if I recall. You had to get hair cuts and other stupid nonsense like wear the right clothing.

 

I don't want a life simulator. I already have a life and the requirement to see a Barber and dress appropriately.

 

It also annoys me when games have wear and tear mechanics.
