Diablo IV looks and sounds fun. I've never played any previous Diablo games though. Maybe I should play an earlier one before this.

Probably Ark 2 to be honest. Some of the other games there look great but I'm not super into FPS games.

I enjoyed Ark but had the usual problems of balance, bugs, grind etc. Ark kept up with its updates and always added something new. I'm interested to see what direction they go in for Ark 2.

Pentiment caught my eye. I like a medieval setting, though it's not my favourite art style ever. What actually got me interested is that it's made by Obsidian - I usually really love their story-driven/RPG games like Pillars of Eternity. If the price tag isn't to high, I'll probably grab it pretty quickly.

Another one here was the ESO expansion for me. I don't play much these days, but I like to check in for new additions. I actually missed this one this time (it's already on PC!) because it's not one of my favourite areas. I was all over the Elsweyr one, so since then, I haven't been as hyped.

Diablo 4 gang here. Been waiting for that game and despite the problems with Diablo Immortal I'm willing to give it a fair shake. Going to avoid a day one purchase for that though, it doesn't have an offline mode and that sort of game will always have server issues at launch. I will say though, Starfield is probably the game there that I have the highest expectations for, but being a Bethesda game it'll probably be a bug ridden mess at launch. I'm a sucker for open world RPG's though I hope that the Elden Ring experience hasn't spoiled me too much. After playing that game I couldn't imagine just going back to the formulaic open world games, not to mention that Starfield plays like a shooter and I've always been iffy about those(I can't aim).

I have the same sentiment with Pentiment too, definitely looks trippy as hell, but I love the art style and a story driven adventure game is a nice change of pace from the typical AAA formula.

Diablo IV just to get the icky taste of Diablo Immortals out of my mouth. Starfield looks kinda cool, but I can easily see it feeling overwhelming and quite possibly too dull. There's no way the thousands of worlds they're talking about will be anything other than procedurally-generated.

I'm a little late, but I must respond to this and give my opinion.

I feel that games like Silksong catch my attention more than the big ones presented in the showcase. Still, I feel like Starfield is a game I have a lot of hype for. I hope Bethesda doesn't disappoint, but, the decision to use the company's old engine doesn't seem right to me. And I feel that this will affect a lot the final result of the game.
