    I was surprised. I picked up a PSVR that was mis-priced at target. Thought I'd just give it to my kids if I didn't like it. They're not getting it. :)

    I know the quality is better. Just costs a lot more.

    I had to kind of ease into it. Racing games are a good place to start, because sitting in a vehicle that is moving is a common point of reference for most of us. But first person shooters and RPGs can be a bit disorienting - even to the point of nausea. The tricky bit is that your brain is getting all these visual signals that you're moving around in the "world", but there aren't the usual g-forces accompanying the movement.

    I remember Super Eurofighter 2000. Its manual was also giant and it had almost a threefold keyboard layout.
    Red Baron II had also a large manual but it was mostly history background, plane characteristics and explained aerial maneuvers. Worth reading.

    It sounds a lot like GW2. If I ever get tired of the current game I am into, I think I will give it a look see.

    GW2 is a lot like novels and books though, it is constantly coming out with new, "seasons" like a TV show or serial novels, every month for players to experience. The story continually builds on past story, I am way behind.

    They seem to increase in complexity and difficulty, which is fine for younger players, but I seem to need to actually do the crafting and other things which the game has available to improve my character, much in the same way I am sure your game has upgrades available for your ship.

    And like your game, there is a free market where players buy and sell things. Something for everyone.

    Far Cry 5 came out on March 27th and I picked it up a few days ago. First off the graphics are ridiculous (on the good side). The map is huge and you wander around Montana hills, valleys, mountains etc... You can fish and it's quite enjoyable. References to preppers . The story is good, but if you are offended by the slightest outtake on Christianity it isn't for you. The game is about a religious cult in Montana that likes guns to say the least. I won't post up any spoilers.

    I like the Far Cry games for the free roam game-play and the huge highly detailed landscapes and atmosphere. I use stealth whenever possible and the compound bow is my weapon of choice. And you have to account for arrow drop on long shots. A ton of other weapons available of course. It's really cool though just wandering around in the world. It sounds like it should, animals act like they should. I'm surprised not all games have gone to open world free roam by now.
