    Is RDR on PS4, or does it even matter if I've never played it for RDR2?
    RDR2 has a really phenomenal story and it absolutely doesn't matter if you played the first one!
    I'd say it adds a bit to it, but RDR is a long game also, so I wouldn't put off playing RDR2 that long. And now that I think about it, doing RDR2 and then RDR1 is probably a really interesting way to play those games.

    I think part of what turned me off was not having the silent protagonist thing. I just couldn't as easily step into their shoes and make the story my own. Also having a missing child that you were trying it find, it felt weird going and doing random other side quests to help the people of the wasteland.

    Finished Uncharted 3.  Definitely inferior to the second in pretty much every way, especially the emphasis on melee combat.  In the middle of a furious gunfight, some dude will run right up to your muzzle and engage you in some tedious quick-time combat?  Good grief, what were they thinking?  Although the platforming/puzzles weren't quite as seamlessly integrated with the rest of the gameplay, there were some very memorable sequences, like the ship graveyard and the cargo plane.  I definitely enjoyed this series.  Incredible that the fourth game is free this month, so I'll be able to finish the series pretty soon.

    After that I got back into Marvel's Spiderman, another game I never finished.  What can you say about this game?  Amazing! Sensational! Spectacular!  As usual, I've been bogged down hunting sidequests and stupid collectibles, but I'm at a point now where if I finish the story I'll have 100%, so it was totally worth it.  Put that on my tombstone: life well-spent.  The story is almost very cool, too, but there's some huge plotholes that kind of ruin it for me.  I think I'm going to finish all the DLC on this one, it's just so much fun.  Edited to add: and the costumes! Holy crap I've never had so much fun trying on different outfits.
    On the Uncharted front, there is also Lost Legacy which I have heard is some people's favorite of the bunch. I haven't finished it yet, but I look forward to getting around to it.

    You like psychological horror? Lake Mungo. Lol, this movie is the definition of underrated and I can't be stopped recommending it. 
    Never heard of it but it's added to the list to check out, thanks.

    Yes, and then talk to me about it!!!

    It unsettled me so badly I can't rewatch it so the closest I can get is making other people watch it.
    Lake Mungo is the definition of disturbing and creepy. It doesn't get nearly enough love.

    Jeff Cannata from /Film gushed about Bluey. I can't recall him saying where he watched it.

    Edit: Disney+ has it.
