The Division: What i’d like to see next

The Division: What i’d like to see next
I’ve been playing The Division since day 1, first on the PlayStation 4, now i play exclusively on PC. Before the game released, i’ll admit i was one of the first people to say that this title would be over-hyped after numerous delays. I decided to pick the game up after a friend had said to me how good it was and thought it would be good to play in a group, so i caved in. I can honestly say this is my personal favourite game i have played in the last 10 years. It excels in group based game-play, while can be played solo, i firmly believe if you have a group of friends to play with – do so! Whether its farming the open world or going manhunt in the Dark Zone, this game is a lot of fun. Now over a year into the game, over 40 Days ...
