Dragon Age is the only other one I can think of that crosses gens, but you don't really need to use actual save data thanks to the tapestry thingamabob. You can import your data into the keep, but you don't have to. You can just manually make the decisions yourself if you want to, which is actually pretty smart.
It feels a little weird that "watch me stream wacky CAWs!" super took off for this Fire Pro game as opposed to every other wrestling game/streamer since VGCW but I'm glad people are having fun with it.
The 2K games being stagnant, busted, and $60 investments for a minimum of ten years isn't helping matters much on that side of things, especially when there hasn't been a stream-friendly story mode since '13. The new Fire Pro being a third of the price and probably a better game mechanically despite Early Access justifies most or all of the buzz, especially since I guess this is the first one launching both in English and on Steam.
It's a follow-up to Sunless Sea which I really like a lot and everyone should play 'cause I feel not nearly enough people even noticed it existed. Also related to Fallen London, another thing everyone should try, be it in your browser window or on one of those devices everyone owns.
