Disco Elysium - The Final Cut (3/30/21) - PC, PS5, PS4, Stadia (XO, Switch coming soon)

I checked and we never had a dedicated thread for this game, which was a massive critical success. The original was a PC-only release in 2019 that got a Metacritic score of 91, ended up as Game of the Year in several sites including PC Gamer, won four awards in The Game Awards, won three BAFTAs, and was praised as game of the year in this forum by a member :

Here's an original review from IGN

Well, waiting has paid off. Last week it finally came to the PS4 and PS5 as The Final Cut. What I didn't expect is that now every bit of dialog in the game is voice acted, and voiced well! Even all the narrator, in-your-head, DM stuff. Apparently it makes a great game way, way better.
The Final Cut has a Metacritic score of a whopping 96.
There's also an additional one of four brief missions you can play at the end now, based on how you sided politically in the main game.

That's more than I could have hoped for. In addition, for its first week the PS5 version (which comes with a free PS4 version as well-- interestingly the PS4 version is 10 GB and the PS5 is 8 GB) is on sale at 20% off for PS Plus members, making it an absolute bargain at launch at $31.99. Sony should have really done a better job highlighting this deal. It takes some searching to even find on the website storefront.
I can't wait to dig into this game!

There are actually lots of complaints about the PS5 version with various framerate, controller, and voiceover issues although the developer is aware and planning patches to fix the issues. The glowing reviews were almost solely based on PC versions. I picked it up at launch also but I'll wait for the patches before checking it out. I'm pretty excited for it also.

I definitely intend to play this... just not sure if I should wait until Summer for the Xbox version, or use my PSN credit and get it sooner than later. Maybe if/when the framerate/buggy issues mentioned above are sorted out, I'll decide.

My original comment stands. I'm looking forward to replaying it with a different character build with all the Final Cut additions. This game is a masterpiece.

I really don't care for this game at all which sucks because I thought I would love it. I gave it 5 hours or so and none of is it clicking for me. The gameplay is uninteresting, the dialogue is way too overdone in the worst way, and I have zero interest in this world.

Were you aware it was a 90's style Sierra/Lucas point & click rpg?

I was well aware what type of game it was and I love rpgs and games with dialogue over gameplay. Obviously I'm in the minority on this one just like I was when I didn't care for The Witcher 3 and everyone took it like some personal attack against them. The difference between me and most people is that when I don't care for something I don't immediately think why would anyone like this it's bad and instead realize that every piece of entertainment is not going to connect with every person. Disco Elysium didn't connect with me personally but I'm glad others love it because it's a type of game that we don't see a lot of especially getting this sort of critical and public acclaim.

I only asked because you said the gameplay was uninteresting. Wasn't sure if you knew what you were getting into. Point & Click gameplay is always uninteresting.
