I have no idea why the internet hates on the game so much. My wireless headphones died mid-play and I couldn't find a mini-USB cable to recharge it so that's a bummer.
Probably because it's a short 3rd person cover shooter that lies about why its technical limitations are a thing (CINEMATIC!1!1!!) that will make more money than you or I will ever see.
I would probably never like it personally and I agree with the complaints, but I will also say the internet is always way angrier than reasonable at everything. Plus I'm happy knowing no one will remember it once Bloodbourne comes out.
I will say it is a highly questionable purchasing decision in an era where you can buy AAA games on Steam for like 5-10 bucks half the time.
It is literally the best looking game I've ever played and I think it's worth every cent, really. I'm busy most of the week and don't have the luxury of sitting in one spot and play a video game for 6~8 hours straight, so I know for a fact that even a short game like 1886 would last me for a long time. I hate games lasting ~80 hours that's basically a fetchquest - I really have no time and patience (looking at you, MH and thy clones). I'm way to lazy to collect things, upgrade things, all that stuff, so this game is definitely up my alley.
Also after I'm done playing I'll be passing it on to Knightus, hopefully in 2 weeks or so, so it's not really a waste of money really
We share all our new games and cut the cost by half.
