True. The only AAA game that seems to be REALLY good this entire generation is RDR2, I'll play it eventually.
Resident Evil 2 is average, Zodiac Age is good but it's a remake of a 2007 game and I played IZJS a lot already.
I'm sure there's a good game here and there that I haven't played yet or which isn't my style but in general yes, mainstream videogames are boring now. For reference, last game I beat was Castlevania Lament of Innocence. I like how simple and straightforward it is. Current games are often so bloated in comparison. The one element that immediately makes me stop playing any game now are crafting mechanics. It's so dumb and overused.
