In other words, watch entire playthroughs/cutscenes on youtube/streams?
Heck, in my case it has to be MGS series.
The only one I've ever played was Snake Eater on PS2, and the demo of MGR, which gameplay didn't captivate me. Funny how much I know about MGS's convoluted story and lore, through review and walkthrough vids, and admire MGR's OST, despite not playing them at all.
Even did that with Infamous Second Son and Uncharted 4, cause I was curious where the story went, since I've dropped consoles, in favor of more pro-consumer platform called PC.
Surely, I'll do the same thing, once Rockstar drops their overhyped sandbox, set in the wild west. Just to see how much I'm not gonna regret buying a console.
P.S. Westworld Season 2 is coming anyway, so I already gonna have my western fix anyway.
Like TF2, buried under gambling addicts and whales, forgetting the core gameplay.
