      i tried watching a playthrough of control and it looked so confusing and boring now i don't know what to think

          Almost none of the games on this list are good. With a few exceptions.

            a genre that is as big of a let down in games as it has been in movies.

                    Finally, with Control now both Xbox and PC can understand a sliver of the incredible gameplay mechanics of InFAMOUS

                            Duuude, really, crackdown 3?... Why are you still pulling for this pos?.... The game is a hot mess that needs to be taken behind the barn and shot, burned, shot again and buried,,,, Tsk-tsk Jake, have some dignity, man.

                                Hm, I just wondered, if "Subnautica" could have also been here.

                                  Why do reviewers keep trying to make No Man's Sky and Destiny 2 a thing years after the fail launch.

                                      Mediocre list and this guys voice is awful. Would have been ok with just about anybody else doing the voice over.

                                        Hope there will be a space game where you build an empire, its kind of survival at first then you meet npc conquer the world then move on to other planets.

                                          So few people mention the SCP foundation when talking about Control, which i feel mirrors a lot of its lore and mechanics from.

                                            Risk of rain 2 should have been high on the list but it wasn't on there. Ror2 is a massively underrated game

                                              I can't believe Destiny 2 is free now. I dont have to use my disc anymore. But downside is I cant play the content I paid for.

                                                I wanted to get No Mans Sky when it came out for xbox, I'm glad I waited until the next few weeks to get it.

                                                  First person or third person shooters don't qualify as "sci-fi"; therefore, most games on this list were not sci-fi.

                                                    First one looks crap, definitely made by amateurs.

                                                    I LOVED Control and I really hope they expand on that universe. One thing though, the checkpoint system was needlessly frustrating, put checkpoints on bosses and it will be perfect.

                                                      It's weird that more and more games have female main characters now

                                                      I still find it amusing, when looking at Crackdown III and think about, the most powerful console yet together with the power of the cloud.

                                                                            That screen tearing in the EDF5 footage at the start of your video is offputting. Turn on vsync or get a modern screen please. It's also super-blurry at 1080p.
