I actually got back into Watch_Dogs 2 recently and I recommend it. I’d suggest you play that game less as a third person shooter and more as a goofy, open world puzzle with movie style hacking. The game gives you a lot of tools so you can hack around things rather than leave a trail of bodies in your wake and it becomes much more fun to explore rather than run up to cover and smoke some dudes.
I also agree with Blindside’s assessment of it. It’s a fun game, written well enough but of course not without its faults. The cast is made up of #Millennials (Like me!) but they’re endearing, diverse and don’t have the cynicism that made the previous one’s cast so unpleasant and forgettable. The writing isn’t mind blowing, but it’s entertaining and at least tries to have a message (Which I can’t say for other recent Ubisoft joints). There’s a mission midway that has some really sharp things to say about the diversity or lack thereof in Silicon Valley (And it might be the best one in the game)
