Far Cry 5 is a game in which you desperately defend yourself against a heavily armed religious cult. Or, if you prefer, you could use it as a nice chance to squeeze in a bit of fishing.
There’s no doubt that Far Cry 5 is a tense game. But it turns out some people have become wrapped up in the game’s fishing mechanic.
Me: FarCry 5 is amazing you can blow up entire towns. Fly planes. Have high speed chases. Gun fight cultists. Wreck a big rig.
Girlfriend: And what have you been doing in the game?
Me:….. I’ve …. lbeen fishing for… several hours.

Four more hours of work and all I can think about is fishing on Far Cry. 🙌🏼😅

Spent half an hour fishing in Far Cry last night. I love fishing in video games almost as much as I hate fishing in real life.

@Ubisoft you guys really captured the realism in #FarCry5 …while fishing for “The Admiral”, I had Grizzly bears from the shoreline swim INTO the water to try and catch my fish I was reeling in. Loving the game, always loved the Far Cry series 💚 pic.twitter.com/pNORvppSgK

Watching someone play Far Cry 5
They got so excited about finding a new fishing spot they accidentally chucked C4 into the river

I’ve been playing Far Cry 5 essentially non-stop since Friday night, so it’s time to relax with some fishing, in which fishing happens and nothing else happens except fishing pic.twitter.com/yOZGTAosoc

Evidently defeating Joseph Seed and his militarized cult can wait.
