Since I didn't see a good fantasy video game I decided to go with FAR CRY PRIMAL. Its cavemen so that should be interesting. Goingthrough tutorial now build your own crude weapons with the environment kind of thing and "hunter vision".
This made me think of CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR and one of its sequels THE MAMMOTH HUNTERS. Except it looks like this video game is set circa 10,000 BC. If it were up to me, I would set the video game even further back in the past, c. 40,000 BC, so Neanderthals could be encountered!

I think so far its cool. It has a technical looking skill HUD for upgrading your cave and rebuilding with ingredients but even with the night vision being M-O-D-E-R-N there is a fun wild and crude element to this. It almost feels like it should be called NATURE FUCKING HATES YOU. I killed a pack of three woolly mammoths using old "Doom techniques" but don't be fooled they're hard. I've been killed so many times by mammoths its ridiculous. There is a fantastic side too with a kind of supernatural link to an owl like a familiar that you control but not really. Its almost like you're pointing him in a direction when he's flying. I haven't seen any of the sexual content yet but with all the animal attacks this is brutal for little kids anyway so I don't recommend it for kids or grandma.
"Grandma! What are you playing on your computer?!? What's with all that blood and gore and cave-man sex?" "Oh, don't you worry your head about it! It's just a little game I picked up called FAR CRY PRIMAL."

There is more "sorcery" involved with a magical bow being described in a vision. Its getting at the high level point where I still don't have 2 (out of six?) resource expanding people to add to my cave turned village with cave behind it.
I learned to slow down the carnage for a slow hunting type mentality where you need to lay low and wait.
I can ride sabertooths and mammoths now.
The mammoths do not become allies like other animals and will immediately trash your ass once you are off their back.
I like the cold effect meter for the mountainous regions and the fact there is no bar for swimming just muffled throat panic.
