I just legitimately don't understand it. I get how people can like games I don't. I'm not into Halo or PUBG, but I can at least respect those games. I was trying to think of a comparison, but I can't think of a major-release game that I found less enjoyable to play and for which I cannot see any upside. The worst part is that I really, really liked Max Payne so I know that Remedy can make good games or at least could at one time.
I'm not sure what they'll do because they're pushing the player count past what seems to be manageable for this kind of game, especially if they stick to the 2-3 hour episode length. Might have to split it into 2 episodes or do 2 separate groups?
I do wonder what game they'll use this year regardless. Last year was Follow, which was the same as FatT's holiday game. And thanks to FatT's Patreon Austin's going to be decently familiar with a lot more games that are good for oneshots, which means we do have somewhat of a pool to guess from based on that alone.
I could see the latest Bluff City game, InSpectres, getting picked due to Jeff's fondness for Ghostbusters. But considering their Bluff City game of it is already set in New Jersey and has an ex-pro wrestler player character, I could see that being a bit repetitive for Austin.
There's an R rating because the MPAA decided a dagger going thru an orc hand required it. Never mind that orcs getting their heads chopped off had only been worthy of a PG 13 going back to FotR. A third movie with a long, violent battle as the focus is common to both trilogies.
