I’ve played the original Prey and I liked it!
I mean I get it, sort of, but the game is fun, and it’s one of the first looter shooters to do the formula justice, it’s an actual complete game. Sadly, that alone puts it well above most other looter shooters/brawlers, it’s not even live service, but it is always online, which is a bit of a bummer.

I disagree that it’s not very good but not everything is for everyone of course.
I guess that depends on if the combination of looter AND shooter is different enough from other looters or other shooters to be excluded from those groups. Because really they aren’t all that different from say... Diablo, except when you move your mouse to click on an enemy to attack them, you do it in first person,… Read more
