    Madden hasn't been good since 2005 for good reason

    I don't think you quite understand. Monopolies are not only coveted in America but revered and protected. It's the latest in the Evolution of Government and Capitalism.

    It's fine to say they suck. But someone is buying those AAA titles, and a lot of them.

    Lots of people like Nickelback and the Dallas Cowboys, too. Popularity doesn't negate suckiness.

    This. So much this. RDR2 was the last AAA game I bought. Before that, Witcher 3.

    I bought mine through a company called Build Redux. They use off the shelf parts, have reasonable prices, and only charge a $75 build fee. Plus no bloatware or anything like that. And they're pretty customizable as far as parts go.

    Okay fellow gamers, the wife is looking at wanting a PC (or laptop) that she can game on AND stream to Twitch.

    Recommendations for pre-built systems? I know building it myself may be more expensive thanks to the chip shortage.

    Bad news, FFXIV:Endwalker got delayed 2 weeks and pushed into December because the producer decided to pull a Ridley Scott-esque Director's Cut style micromanagement on the storyline and artistic elements, which didn't leave enough time to ensure everything was QA tested before its original release date.

    Good news, it means it's not being released right before Thanksgiving, so I'll actually get to binge it on its actual release. And they released the official launch trailer (above), which is somehow better than the full CGI one they released over the summer and gives me hope this will be an epic conclusion to an 8-year long plot line.

    I do play on an HD TV. That being said, I have an LG OLED CX which by itself is great for gaming. I also bought a decent converter. If you are serious about things looking like you remember, try something from here https://www.retrotink.com/

    I have the 2X mini. Not cheap but is about as close to looking like a CRT as I can find. Not sure if the 5X is much of an upgrade but it is even pricier.

    These three are probably the most expensive of the traditional NA release set. The problem I have is they are generally bad games...so it makes it hard to pull the trigger.

    I don't trust Amazon as a game company. So I'll skip their offerings for a few more years.
