    I feel like I'm the only one who prefers 4 way over both 3 and 5. 5 felt really bland due to the lack of an actual protagonist imo, I always enjoy hearing the protagonist react to shit in these games. I also felt that the weapons just weren't as good in 5, they even felt less punchy than 4. The reason I prefer 4 over 3 though is just because 4 felt to me like an even better 3.

        Yeah, that I can agree with, as I said though I just can't stand a blank protagonist. I don't mind in games like RPGs and such because you can see the character and heavily customize. In FC5 though, the customization was so cookie cutter and surface level and you don't see the character anyway. I really think a fleshed out rookie cop character could've elevated the game a lot.

      Agreed. Far Cry 5 doesn't have shit on Far Cry 4. Gameplay, enemy camps, map itself and characters in FC5 are worse. There are a couple of highlights in FC5, but mostly it's stale and boring. Shangri-La in FC4 is most kino side content in vidya ever.

        Oh get fricked. FC4 promised us Far Cry with snow and there was literally no snow in the main map. Just a handful (like 5) gated missions where you get to play in the snow and use 02 tanks and snow mobiles.

        This literally must have been because the devs were Canadian and didn't realise that everyone in the world besides Canadians thinks snow is amazing.

      As far as gameplay and setting I feel that way about 4. Rook Islands have a beauty that is hard to match but I'm also just partial to mountains and Nepal was beautiful in its own way. But the immediate QoL improvements from 3-4 make 4 a banger.

      I actually liked 6 a lot. I was prepared to be jaded but it was fun. I finally accepted that Far Cry had a style and was going to do certain things the way it always did them and I played 6 with tempered expectations and wound up enjoying it. I like that the game had some more linear sections.

        Exactly. These games are supposed to portray the horror of being stuck in the middle of bum frick nowhere with no other choice but to kill to survive, and they end up being theme park rides with nerf gun battles. There's not sense suspense or helplessness. If they just scaled back on the goofy shit and made the combat encounters more grounded and tactical, the could probably manage to breathe some fresh new life into the series.

      I don't necessarly want gritty and grounded and far cry was never really that. First game goes kinda sci-fi halfway through as well. But I'd find that medium of "somewhat gritty and grounded" and reward people with some zany stuff for playing side-missions or something. They need to do something a little different and gritty and grounded may be a course-correction for the series. But don't go as far as Far Cry 2 in that direction.

              NTA but while Far Cry 2 has a lot of cool details the gameplay is simply lacking. The gun durability mechanic sucks and the gunplay isn't particularly polished. The stealth suit is a neat idea but it's very shitty to actually use. The respawning waypoints are cancer and compound with the gun durability to make the game unfun.

          It doesn't help far too many people tried to play FC2 like it was a call of duty one man army fps when the game mechanics are more suited to playing it with a slower, more tactical pace. The prime example that does in fact filter brainlets is the stealth system - it works but because people just wanted to camp on a rock overlooking a camp and fire a thousand rounds and the a.i to think it was just the wind proves that (and is why stealth was dumbed down in 3 to exactly that).

          Players who paid attention got a lot of usage from the stealth system.

    6 is just a straight up downgrade in basically every metric.
    The stupid gear system was not a good replacement for the skill tree.

    Been wanting to play back through all the games now that it seems to be on pause after 6. Finished FC1 last month and in the final stretch of FC2; been playing with the Realism + Redux mod and it was beautiful the whole way through.

    Are there any good, subtle visual improvement mods for 3, 4, & Blood Dragon? Like lighting tweaks, UI sublimination, or something to bring back cut trailer scenery.

      You'll need the mod installer as well.

    My playstyle in every Far Cry was to sneak around and snipe people / camps from a distance, set up ambushes for convoys and only run and gun if shit gets out of my hands or the game forces me to.
    Its impossible to snipe camps if its not part of the mission in 5, the game sends goons/ animals / helicopters after you while youre crouching in the bushes and trying to scope stuff out. 5 Took a bunch of freedom away and forced you to play it one way. New Dawn was more or less the same, but looked like visual diarreah. I never even tried 6... makarena gun, rocket pack, crocodile pet. Yeah, no thanks.

    I played FC3 randomly last year and absolutely adored it, I had a hard time getting into 5/6 though. Re downloading 5 now because of this thread, maybe because I tried to play them to quickly after each other.
    Really hard to beat the "Naive dumbass college white guy turned into a jungle warrior through trauma" is kind of a hard protagonist to beat though

      Why not just write slop? It's shorter. Stop trying to make new meme words. It won't happen.

    What do you guys want to see in Far Cry 7? I want a huge map like in 6 but without the Reddit shit like every character being obnoxious or wacky weapons.

    I also want the ability to reset outposts and New Game+ at launch. That shit should have been launch standard for Ubisoft's games many years ago.

      > reset outposts
      new dawn had that, it also introduced the expeditions feature, which was the only saving grace of fc6 for me. why gays sleep on that game is beyond me, the story is whatever but the gameplay is the best it's ever been in the series.

        I think they're scared that people will compare it to RDR2 which would inevitably be better than it.
