Far Cry 5 recently broke the $300 million mark in sales, and with good reason. The game, like its predecessors, is a beautiful, hyper-violent romp through the countryside: you find yourself helping out some cowboy preppers in a fight against a homegrown enemy in a bloodthirsty doomsday cult. But after you shoot, stab, and drive your way to the final bad guy, things take a weird left turn.
Spring is here, along with plans for road trips and getaways on those few precious three and four-day weekends that come with federal holidays. As everyone else funnels off base or packs before an early morning departure, you can’t help but think: Bye, suckers.
