  3. Is Far Cry 5 worth it for $30?
Or should I wait for the inevitable complete edition?

I saw mixed reactions at release and not sure how it compares to FC3 and 4 which I loved. Would I be missing out on anything good DLC wise? The other games never had good DLC.
Someday I'm hoping to close my eyes and pretend, that this crumpled up paper can be perfect again.

I bought it a month ago and after about 2 hours (and several glitches) I put it down and haven't picked it back up since. I too loved FC3/4 (and Primal) but nothing here was pulling me in. I'd say wait, black Friday is around the corner and Ubi games always go cheap.

Yes, it's great. Vietnam DLC is good too and then the Mars and Zombie DLC are garbage.

To answer the question: It's a good game, but not even the best Far Cry game. Unless you're desperate to play it, wait for Black Friday. I bought the gold edition because I got it cheap on release and the DLC is disappointing. Only the free Far Cry 3 classic made it worthwhile.

I would wait until black Friday honestly.
RE4 is one of the greatest games ever made.

Far cry 5 is only second to Far Cry 3 as beat in the series. The rural Montana setting is done very well and serves as a perfect backdrop for the story it tells. The only fault I found in the game was the ai was too easy and a lot of the side missions are copy pasted.
