    Started Horizon this week and am absolutely blown away so far. May even like it better than RDR2.

    I took a 4+ year break from gaming and came back to a PS4 Pro with RDR2. (Okay a little Mario Odyssey in there.) I was blown away by how far consoles have come and really enjoyed the movie like quality of RDR2's story throughout. I played a grand total of 0 side quests (white question marks, or grey dots) and powered through the main story only. Absolutely fantastic game and I feel a lot of the criticism here doesn't hold up. Is it perfect? No. Is it a fantastic effort by a talented team? Definitely.

    Ironically he's the best person for the job. If you're not on a computer or online, nothing bad can happen to you from a cyber security standpoint. Right?

    I'm a digital marketing expert and Bachelor of Economics major. Wonder if going back to school would really be worth the potential of a mid six-figure annual payout?

    MMO's in college. Started with Asheron's Call way back when, by the time college hit I was taking blocks off (one class, three-and-a-half weeks) to play Asheron's Call 2 and other MMO's (Dark Age of Camelot, Shadowbane, etc). Usually 14-15 hour sessions for weeks, at times eating nothing but oatmeal cream pies and drinking brisk ice tea out of my dorm room mini-fridge. Always chasing a rush of being first at something, discovering a new area, or just competing in true player-vs-player Worlds with consequences and guild families. I started dating a girl who eventually took me out of this cycle of new games and graduated college with no issues.

    Bought books 2 and 3 last week. Can't wait to get started. I find her writing style hard to read quickly, however, so it'll be a bit of a slog.

    Immediately stopped watching after Dokes (sp) died. Season 1? Also creepy Dexter was married to his sister in the show in real life.
