I bought South Park: The Fractured But Whole a few days ago and I think it's amazing. I didn't play The Stick of Truth cus it came out after PS4's launch and fuck playing on the PS3, but with a purchase of a new copy of The Fractured But Whole comes a free digital code for The Stick of Truth which is pretty damn awesome. So I'll likely be playing that once I beat this. As I started playing I immediately loved it cus it's pretty damn funny, and I haven't been watching South Park at all the last couple years, but I used to watch it all the time. Playing this game brings so much joy to me because it feels like I'm in control of a really long South Park episode. I also have played pretty fucking dark games recently now that I think about it. Outlast 2, Farpoint, Nier Automata, even Persona 5 which was delightful was somewhat dark as well. So I think this game is a good shake up in tone that I needed.
The game is turn based which is made fun of by the game itself which of course cracks me up. During combat the characters are saying funny ass shit as well. The fact thats its a full blown role playing game just makes it that much better because that guarantees that I will get a good amount of time out of it.
Also, did I mention it looks exactly like the TV show does? Seriously there's no difference, and while that may not be impressive due to everything looking like it was made out of cardboard, it's still quite the spectacle to be playing a game that looks exactly like its source material.
