Doesn't appear to be a Far Cry thread and, given how much I enjoyed 3 and 4, I think it deserves its own.

The setting sounds promisingly picturesque, and lots of potential to explore deep south gothic True Detective-style bizznizz.https://www.theverge.com/2017/5/24/15685670/far-cry-5-setting-art-e3-2017-ubisoft

Your search skills needs work dude. Given that we already have dedicated Far Cry 3 and 4 threads can you make the title of this one more accurate?

That aside, shooting right-wing gun-toting US nutjobs in the face will be a lot more satisfying than the previous games baddies so I welcome this. Though it's a fucking brave move from Ubisoft given not just the current US political climate but also the fact that a chunk of their audience may end up identifying with the antagonists enough to be annoyed about it all.

Only played 3 and 4, really enjoyed them both. I think 3 is the better of the two because Vaas.

I enjoyed 2, despite it having numerous flaws. Played all the way to the end, and then re-ran from a late save a few times for the different endings.

Never finished 3.

Didn't play 4.

Played 3 & 4.

3 had a very enjoyable campaign with some good missions and excellent characters but was let down by dream sequences, being too easy and open world fat that needed trimming.

4 had a less enjoyable campaign with less good missions and less excellent characters and was also let down by dream sequences, being too easy and with open world fat that needed trimming. To add insult to injury it involved a retreading of the 3's boring opening gameplay loop and the two factions thing was boring and locked off campaign missions.

If they can shrink 5's world (if you never visit 75% of the world on foot whats the point), manage a decent campaign (more buried in bodies and interesting stuff like that) with some good characterisation (we know they've got it in them) that doesn't involve kooky druggies (one nutjob villian is ample) and yet still ramp up the difficulty for outpost captures; possibly including a better hierarchy of standard enemy types (light/heavy/sniper just isn't interesting), then I'll be happy.

Pro-tip: you can restrict the search to thread titles only, so if you do that then searching for Far Cry almost instantly turns up the old threads.

ETA: in fact I've just realised you can also restrict the results to only show threads as well which is pretty effective and reveals we've got three different threads dedicated to Far Cry 2: search.php?keywords=far+cry&terms=all&author=&sc=1&sf=titleonly&sk=t&sd=d&sr=topics&st=0&ch=300&t=0&submit=Search
