Bundles CAN be nice - but to be honest, it's more worth it to me personally to simply have a lower price on the card, even if it's just a promotional discount.

It's kind of hit or miss, really. When I got the RX 5700 for my son, he was definitely interested in the games available with the promotion at the time.

Yeah, most of the time, I have zero interest in bundled games and buy based on whether the retail price is worth it for the GPU alone. The only reason I ever got Half-Life 2 and a handful of other games was because there was a Steam bundle promo at the time and I needed a new GPU after giving my 8500LE to my mother when her PC's GPU died.

Same with my GTX1050 where there was a pick-one-of-three promo and the only title I had even a remote interest in was Redout for which I actually ended up getting a handful of DLCs at 50 80% off.

I'm probably going to play Shadowlands, though I have no interest in getting an RX5600+ for it.

The games in this bundle don't seem quite on the same level as some of their other recent offerings. Godfall hasn't really impressed me from the couple trailers I've seen. The environments look fairly nice, but the player character and enemies just look like generic armored things, and what has been shown of the gameplay hasn't really drawn me in either.

And the Warcraft Shadowlands expansion is probably only really interesting to previous or current subscribers who have been playing the game for years. Being a subscription-based game, the bundled expansion comes off more as a free trial for a game that will cost $15 a month should one decide to continue playing it. There's apparently a free "starter" account option now, but from what I gather it seems rather limited in terms of content and progression.
