First of all, I don't care to play for real money. Maybe down the road I will be but for now I'm becoming obsessed with poker. I'm playing Prominence Poker on Xbox One. It's pretty addictive. I've got up as far as Platinum Ranking and have had some good streaks, like winning three tournaments in a row. I've also been playing the seven-deuce game with myself and bluffing wins with 7-2 which has just been hilarious for me. I've been playing for about 3 weeks now and have over 50% of achievements. I'm quite happy with my progress. Eventually I would like to get in to the casino and play in some real tournaments but for now I'm happy playing for the love of the game itself.
Prominence Poker is great because you have an avatar that you can customize and buy new swag for. This is what I miss in other online poker games. I do love playing poker in RDR and it was pretty decent in Watch Dogs too. I was disappointed there was no poker in GTA V. I mean that was a missed opportunity to have an awesome side-game to play where it could have been legit in the casino or underground like The Sopranos card game or in Watch Dogs instead we got Yoga and Tennis.
Anyone else play Poker games? Would you like to see more poker in videogames?
I didn't make this video but if anyone is curious about Prominence Poker..
