WRPG = anything that isn't a JRPG, basically. It's basically "RPG in the style of bioware" as opposed to "RPG in the style of Squaresoft".

But Bethesda is its own thing. Even 20+ years ago, a Bethesda RPG bore little resemblance to other WRPGs - like, compare the original Fallout, or even Baldur's Gate, to Daggerfall. Bethesda games have never been driven by their characters or even by any compelling plot. It's just, "here's a big open world - go do stuff." So I don't think not liking Skyrim has any implications for your views about any other games not made by Bethesda.

Xbox version bugs were fixed a while ago.

I wouldn't say it's "fixed" yet. It's certainly a lot better than it was at launch, but it still needs some work.

Anyone play Path of Exile? I probably don't want to go ultra deep into it so does it matter what I pick? Or is there a class/strategy that's better for beginners?

Anyone played Metro Exodus? Any thoughts on playing it without having played the earlier Metro games?

I played about 10 minutes of that game, took one look at the skill tree, and noped right now

Yeah, I literally laughed out loud the first time I allocated a skill point.

I'm hoping though that I can have fun playing through the content once without having to worry too much about minmaxing that. Kinda like Diablo III I lost interest once grinding Paragon levels and trying to roll that tiny upgrade became the main thing to do.

Does anyone have any opinions on Wolfenstein 2: The new Colossus for PS4? I scrolled further back in the thread and I didn't seem to see anything. I have a bit of time to dig into some games for about a week and I'm wondering if I should add it to the list along with Evil Within 2 and Life is strange ep 2.

I am at least halfway through. If you like the first games you will like this one. This one gives you a little more leeway in that you can explore for resources whereas the previous ones were more linear FPS. Like the first games it's a little unpolished but I like the Russian story and viewpoint. It's not GOTY material but it's a competent and fun FPS.

I would add it if you liked the first one. I thought the game/gun play was great and the story was pretty good too. If you have some time to spare, The New Colossus would be a good game to play.

I haven't played the first two though. Do you think that will be a problem? Will the story of this one make sense without the background from the first two?

I don't think it's a huge problem as the story is still straightforward although you may lack some of the background details of the Metro. It's all based on post-apocalyptic Moscow where survivors have to live in this underground Metro with the first games being based a lot around exploring sewers, etc and gas masks being required for any on-ground missions. This one is a little different in that it deals with a crew finding some truths about the Metro and mostly on-ground quests so very little dark underground sewer stuff that made the first games creepy with the mutated creatures and humans. I enjoy the series because it's probably the best example of what life would be like after an apocalypse as it's a constant struggle for survival as you have to craft ammunition, gas mask filters, weapons, etc and even carry around a manual hand crank generator to recharge flashlights, etc. It's all very Russian seeing its based on Russian novels which is a nice change from the Western or Japanese based games we typically play.

If you liked the first game and love the over-the-top, ridiculous storyline, it's a no-brainer. Was one of my favourite games when it came out.
