    No I didn't. I just want to finish the game and maybe try again with a new game.

    Honestly, while 2 got lots of praise, I think much of it has to do with how much it improved on the gameplay of the first game, but on the whole, coming at it much later, I was left feeling disappointed. It doesn't help that I felt that after all the buildup throughout the game, that I felt shortchanged at the end. It's such a tease. The first game had a standalone game with closure, but this one ends on a cliffhanger. This is why I felt Brotherhood and Revelations to be better games. In Brotherhood, it's essentially a direct continuation that should have been part of the main narrative of the first game. I guess they felt the game was too long though and split it. And other than that, I found they were much more fun than the actual sequel. Thematically, I feel Revelations is more of a true sequel to 2, as it's a followup to Ezio in his later life with a change in location.

    That sounds like a gamestate wasn't triggered properly. Those kinds of things tend to happen more often in open-world games due to their complexity, but they can almost always be fixed by either closing the game down and restarting it, or reloading the save. A few things like that happened to me in RDR2. If it's being correctly detected by the game as completed, then the mark should disappear on reload.

    I give up on L.A.Noire for the moment and started with the Witcher 2

    I'll have a look at that. But this time around it's the GOG versions of the games I am playing not the steam versions.

    I just got the game DEFCON...... You can blow up the world. It's like the computer sim from the movie Wargames but better.

    Yeah, well bugs happen. ;)

    On my PS4, I'm currently playing God of War, and I'm having a great time with it! Combat feels good and I'm enjoying the exploration along the way.
