I also tried metro and I just couldn't get into it. I didn't give it much of a try though, probably just 40 mins or so. The animations and voices were so stiff, combined with being forced to follow around a not at all believably human NPC for too long.. made it feel like a game that was getting in the way of itself. It really highlighted the bad parts right off the bat, opposite of how the first metro game was. When it finally did let me start playing, it started off really with a slow stealth mission that was actually fairly hard, which made the pacing feel weird. Long intro with nothing good about it and no action, then straight into slow grinding gameplay. Not a good hook.

personally the only thing i don't care for is having to have the latest W10 because i begrudgingly update only when i have to since to me there are more useless features than fixes. and i don't need to play a game because it's new or everyone's doing it. but i ain't going to judge the service based on just my preferences.

~$5/$10 a month is a no brainer for a lot of gamers. i'll wait a few months, still got a big enough back log.
Absolutely agree. For what? $60 a year, the price of one game, I have access to an entire library of games that I may have never had the opportunity to play? It is absolutely a no-brainer and just as you said, if not using it, unsubscribe. Pretty simple.

All these mentions of "sheep" and what have you. I've been PC gaming since PC gaming was born. I just don't get the complaints here.

Anti lag increases performance with vsync... also I dont see any problem with input lag

if anything the game gave the player more freedom, there is no linear story where you have to do x when you are told to, you could just complete side missions and then go to the objective, not sure metro was always an action game, their main strong points were storytelling and exploring which continue being the same in exodus, the intro is long probably because they need to explain the new players about the story, technically the amount of people who just goes to play exodus without playing the prequels is just higher than it should be
