I actually enjoyed playing the first game... but as with all games I play the "squirrel!" syndrome eventually took over and "ooh, shiny!" came along. The second just felt too restricting. Granted, I didn't get very far, but when you give me an open world game and then don't let me just jump in...

im with you on 4. thought primal was gonna suck but it borought new life for me in far cry. 3 was almost perfect for the series. 4 was a blast but lacked something. ill say though, saw some VR gameplay for Skyrim and i dont think it was my thing. just looked awful and seemed to break immersion far more than mouse and keys do. and personally im not a fan of coop anything. cause most times i do better alone ha ha. will say though FC5 may break that for me as ive alredy got friends wanting to play w me. that said, ill be at a beerfest launch weekend.
If Skyrim VR allows the use of graphics mods, it could be pretty damn awesome. But then, it would require something like the Vive Pro and a ridiculously spec'd system to back it up (like dual Vegas or 1080s). Given the state of the graphics card market right now, I'm not quite ready. I do plan on building a disgustingly pimped out AMD system (gimme that Threadripper!) in honor of my Dad and the games we used to play, but that can wait... I'll be spending enough just getting the case airbrushed (as soon as I can find someone to do it).
I just went ahead and pre-ordered the Gold Edition of Far Cry 5 - I was going to settle for the regular edition, but playing on Mars sounded really cool. I hope they get the gravity right.
@ BW - I was just thinking this thread should probably get moved to GamerTalk >_>
