I'll be over here enjoying a polished bug free Destiny 2 that I started with zero investment last December when it was free.
Anthem is not structured around a full game release at launch all the content available and if people disregard that you are jumping to conclusions.
SLI is coming after launch. The rest is ... well... shit... Should have been fixed.This is a good game at its heart that let's stupid shit get in the way. The load times are fucking inexcusable in this day and age and I'm shocked shit like forcing a zone reload when you "exit" the mission area made it past a focus group.
Now for the positives. The gameplay is really fun. You have no idea how much joy I get out of hulk smashing shit as a colossus and the amount of visual customization is incredible. They just need to fix that other shit.
- Where o where are you fov slider
- Turning motion blur off does not actually turn motion blur off.
- Turning chromatic aberration of also doesn't do what it says.
- Sli is broken.(for a game that is in bed with nvidia this is a joke)
- Can't turn hdr off in the settings(sucks for those with fake hdr displays)
- Not having shared quest results is a rookie fuckup in multi-player game design.
- Loading times......it cannot be understated how bad these are so I will mention it again. I have ssds and 32gb of ram with a system combo that is firmly in the enthusiast level of performance yet even I see load times approaching the 2 minute mark.
Also, don't half ass your narrative, either go full boat or not at all, it's like they saw that warframe is successful riding mostly on codex entries and tried to Pigeon hole whatever they ran out of mocap budget for into a similar system. It's kinda disjointed.

would this still be a shitty game for anyone who hasn't played the preceding games or any of bioware's previous shit?
I really miss bullfrog...
You forgot Origin. They killed Ultima Online back in 2001-2003 trying to make a diablo 2 loot clone, I will never forgive them. (Long live UO on free shards like UO LostLands and UO Outlands)
I've enjoyed it, but I wouldn't buy it. It's really only worth playing if you've already got Origin Premier and can play it anyways.
^^This..Already have Premier, knew nothing about Anthem, some people talkin about it, ooo on Premier, did the demo, wasn't horrible, playing it now.
2 things I would fix right out of the gate:
1. Load times
2. And walking in town.
Otherwise, I am having fun with the game play.
This really is my only issues with it. I would add that matchmaking and joining a missing already in progress makes me quit and start over because I don't want to skip across content.
And people are already doing the destiny thing, skip fights and go straight to boss as quick as possible. Those are the ones that get to end game as quick as they can and then complain there is no content even though they went through it all before even an official release lol.
I do enjoy it, story is intriguing but I would rather not walk and talk to every single person or maybe make the area smaller. The gameplay and combat is a blast though.
For me it is like destiny but with an iron man suit mod lol.
