Only thing exciting about this is Giancarlo Esposito

i THOUGHT that was him... but it doesn't quite look like him... so weird.

You can blame me, because I'll still be playing it. 

 

I'm even more to blame than you... I always buy these games and then take forever to play them much less beat them. I took forever to beat Far Cry 3 and own four and five and have barely touched them. I don't think I've even OPENED five yet.

I haven't finished New Dawn, but that's it. I liked the villain in 4 even more than Jason Vaas. 5 has the best overall gameplay but the story does get infamously kind of stupid.

This has to be one of the most consistently unappealing and stupid looking series of games currently on the market to me.

 

 

This and Just Cause I would agree. FC can be fun but does tend to be rather long and monotonous. I never beat FC4 or 5 but had a good time in 5 for the first 20 or so hours!

Fair chance I get this at some point. It really is brain dead comfort food.

 

I really liked 3 and 4, skipped Primal, was excited for 5 initially, but they toned down the political stuff and it was fun enough to play because I did put the most time into it, but by the end, I was ready to be done and it had a crap ending. I never played the smaller spinoff, like Blood Dragon or that one for 5.

Far Cry 2 and 3 are my favorites in the series, 3 is easily the best IMO. 4 was decent but just seemed like more of what 3 had already offered before it but not as good, and 5 didn't really appeal to me taking place in backwater rural America with a lame cult storyline and playing as a silent protagonist.

 

6 seems to be going back to the style of 3 and 4 which is what I want from the series, I just hope that there's enough new about it to not feel like more of the same.

 

I noticed that the name of the character that you play in 6 is Dani which could be male or female, so I'm wondering if you can choose your gender like you could in 5.

Far Cry 6 Dev Explains The New Politically-Charged Setting (Gamespot)

Quote

Far Cry 6 is a game about politics and how radically different views inevitably lead to conflict. Set during an uprising in the country of Yara, which takes stylistic and historical inspiration from the island of Cuba, you'll join the rebel force made up of citizens to overthrow Anton Castillo and his regime. His ultimate goal is to bring the country out of its period of stagnation and into a supposed new age of prosperity, even if it means oppressing and enslaving the country's citizens to do it. Since Far Cry 3, the franchise has enjoyed putting its villains front and center, giving them plenty of time to explain their philosophies in elaborate detail. They're larger than life figures whose presence is evident throughout the jungles, caves, and forests in the open-world settings--and Far Cry 6 is no different.

 

"It all came from a place of really just trying to understand the idea of revolution, and what that really means," said Khavari. "I started on this game about four and a half years ago, and when we began our research, you look at the history of revolutions, and that of the guerrilla revolution. When we landed on the inspiration of the island of Cuba, and got to spend about a month there for initial research, we got really excited about this idea of a modern guerilla revolution. When you're looking at any revolution, you're examining the nature of defiance, systemic oppression, and the idea of how far do you have to be pushed to be willing to pick up a gun--to be willing to risk your life for something you believe in?"
