Prior Experience

This is another game I'd never heard of, but I was repeatedly warned that it's terrible. I also watched a review that ripped the shit out of it. I probably should have gone in "fresh," but I had a morbid curiosity about it's incredible 16 metascore.


Honestly, I expect to hate it. I've yet to see a single defender of this game, and some of the things I've heard make me more than a bit uncomfortable. It's weird, because 60s biker gangs are not something that has been done in the open-world crime genre of games, so there's a part of me that thinks the game's premise sounds kind of interesting, and I'm generally an optimist who likes to keep things positive, but the consensus surrounding this game is so unanimous that I don't have a lot of hope.
