Yeah, but the grunts were previously limited to specific levels, like in platformers; or a limited explorable area, like in older Metal Gear games. Combining grunts with massive open worlds is on another level. I can only take out so many pickup trucks of dumb bad guys in Hope County before my eyes start to glaze over and my thumbs are starting to go numb.

I get that but somebody needs to break the trends in these superhero games.. they have an entire universe of villains... imagine if spiderman comics had 1 issue vs a major villain n the next 5 were against random grunts

If the game was just 10 boss fights everyone would complain the game was too short. There would also be no sequel because every villian would be beaten. There needs to be a happy balance. In Spider-Man for instance, most of the goon fights/grind are entirely optional side quests. The main storyline is compelling and has a great flow.

There's also development cost that needs to be considered. Those boss fights take considerable more resources to make.

There are at least 11 Spider-Man villians/antagonists in this game.

Borrowed FarCry 5 from my brother in law.

I'm not really seeing what all the hate is about. So far it's pretty standard Far Cry fare. The story is maybe a little dumber than the others i guess.

I wouldn't say I hated it. I was just disappointed that it was just more of the same after the initial opening.
