It's a fresh challenge, and most importantly, I can find games.
This could not find a game session to join thing has gotten old. I can never find 3 bar games anymore, and hardly any crappy ones. 1-2 games tops is unacceptable. I've only ever seen as many as 5-6, but it's super rare.
RE5 has a whole board of mercs games to choose from. It blows my mind.
