    Yeah, I'm extremely excited for this. Open World games always end up being compared or similar to others, i.e Assassins Creed, or Far Cry, but Open World games are pretty hard to make and to make unique, considering how big they are. Also making engaging side content. I just take Open World games with a good story/setting when choosing one.

    This one is right up my alley. I've always enjoyed samurai/edo period based games, movies, anime, so on so forth. So having an open world one is pretty rad/exciting to get into. The gameplay/locations/combat they've shown us so far not only look super cool, but gorgeous.

    Even if the game ends up being repetitive in a way, (which every game is nowadays, let's be real) I'm hoping that the story/setting/characters are enough to keep my engaged and happy until the very end.

    Mad Max was a fine example of repetitive, mundane side content, but a super good game that I very much so enjoyed to the very end because of its world and the unique-ness of its setting, being post-apocalyptic and vehicle based.

    I can't wait for this. I'm more excited for TLoU2 but this looks good.

    I'm loving the Sony exclusives since making the swtich from Xbox. Haven't been many duds that I've discovered so far, to boot, this looks beautiful. Just hope the gameplay matches.

    Watching that State of Play, I've gone from being 'reasonably interested' to 'overly excited'!

    I love a beautiful open world, and I love the setting. The combat looks a bit odd right now, but I have faith in Sucker Punch.

    I have no idea what your point is supposed to be here.

    I would argue Tell Me Why is the summer's most exciting game, although I have both consoles and am a sucker for anything Dontnod releases.
