Yes, these blow.

Thankfully it seems like developers have wised up to this on modern consoles and it's not something you see very often. Or when you do, the person you are escorting isn't a useless bullet magnet with suicidal AI.

You really don't see these anymore. But yeah, they suck when you do.

I hate that I feel stuck between consoles. It’s to the point where I don’t want to play anything. I’m not upgrading to a PS4 Pro because I know the next gen is on the horizon, but I don’t want to play new games on my standard PS4 (or Xbox One S) because I just get hung up on knowing I’m not getting the full 4K HDR experience I would if I upgraded.

I don't think we are getting new consoles until Holiday 2020 at the earliest. Cyberpunk 2077 is confirmed to be a PS4/Xbox One game and is still a year or two away.

Yeah, 2020 is on the horizon in my book. Not shelling out for a new console that will only be relevant for two years max.

It's not like the first year of a new console is stocked with must-play games. I would look into trading in one of your consoles for the upgrade. I was able to upgrade my PS4 for the Pro for $130 via Craigslist and an Amazon sale. It's possible.
