      Wish I was on PS4. When this game was free on PSN!

    YUP. I play at least 2 or 3 games a day just for kicks, and some days in the range of 10-15 if I am on a roll. All competitive ranked games even though I kinda stink at the game and rarely approach Gold, but this could be game of the year for all of the last three years for me. Only issue is being unable to connect players into ranked games through parties, so I seem to have to play ranked with randoms which sucks sometimes.

    my son got me into rocket league and it is great, i have to admit. it works for me because it’s fast paced and games don’t take very long at all.

      It’s the perfect casual game and the perfect competitive game.
