You pick it, I play it. (Tell me what to play)

So, I always seek recommendations on whatís good, what I might like to play next and have seen others ask as well, what should I play next?

I thought this would be the thread for you all to decide for us. We list, you pick, we play, thatís it. Decision made by others to stop vexing the mind with what to play after the latest game weíre playing. If it works, it works, if you donít like the game, well, you gave a try and move on.

Also, probably good to note what console, type of player, if you care about genre or gameplay swaps, gameplay type or genre preference, maybe reason for next choices and what you last played. Of course, you donít have to be so detailed, maybe just list your thinking about whatís next.

Console:
XBOX One

Last played:
Borderlands 3

Game type most like:
FPS, but of course a good 3rd person as well.

Care about same gameplay type in a row:
No

Type of player:
Casual, single player only.

Next game choices:
1. Journey to the Savage Planet (based on some recommendation here)
2. MK 11 (not really my type of game, but different than usual and want to give my friend at least a good match before he Fatalities me)
3. Darksiders: Genesis (again 2D not my norm and havenít touched others (though, 3D) even though I have them, but heard this was good)
4. Doom: Eternal (started, donít love, but want to finish)
5. Nier: Automata (gets raves here I know, was hard to push through beginning as Iíve mentioned, but willing to give another go)
6. Wolfenstein: Youngblood (started, got side tracked, same play style as first 2)
7. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered (love the game, the franchise, havenít played since 360, wanted to see new visual flare)
8. Resident Evil 3 (havenít finished 2, but know it doesnít matter)
9. The Outer Worlds (donít love straight RPG, but this is more action and I was liking what I played before got distracted)
10. other (please specify...)

Play Call of Duty, OB. Seems like you’ve already tried most of the others.

Get a PS Now account + Dual Shock 4 controller and play Bloodborne on your PC.

Re: You pick it, I play it. (Tell me what to play)

Hard to say out of that list...being a PS4 person...but i did play The Outer Worlds and had a great time with it. It's in that...Fallout...type of game where yes, there are some RPG parts but the actual gameplay along with the design and look makes it a fun ride. You basically can mix and match two companions that do a lot and just a good game period.

If FPS, Single Player...Borderlands but Doom: Eternal not really....what about Far Cry 5....that has a sort of open world, get companions, great action and fun times. Lots of rides, NPC's, places. guns and even a decent story to boot not to mention it really does look good. Some of the older COD Games still have life and offer a solid solo campaign.

You should have played the COD 4 remastered when it came out. It will still be good but it will lose some of the wow factor because even now those graphics are tame by today's standard.

Nier: Automata. The invisible walls are a bit obnoxious, but otherwise it's fantastic. I think you can remap the buttons, too.

Nope. Think Iím going back to Odyssey tomorrow. It was always so addictive and so much other cool stuff to do thatís not main story and can play in quick bits or more and can a lot done. MW just mission after mission of shooting guys. Eh, maybe another time since I have played already.

Not to totally hijack this but I'm going through my backlog. Which would be the better playthru Last of Us or Witcher 3?
