I would also say vancouver too because i currently live in toronto and it is packed. My dads best friend lives in vancouver and i usually see photos that shows how vancouver is an okay place.
Montreal is also a nice city but mostly french so im not sure if you would be interested in that.

I lived in Canada for a while as a kid. Prefer the UK but Canada is a pretty good country. I lived in Burlington, Ontario which is pretty near Toronto. I'd say out of those places go for Toronto.

Montreal has too many snobby French people imo, been there and will never go back. Toronto is expensive but a pretty decent city with lots to do. Vancouver is iffy, lots of drug and prostitution problems as well as many areas of poor housing. I'd say if you have a good job and can afford to live anywhere, Toronto would be ideal all around, just stay out of the Jane and Finch area of the city which is prone to gang activity.

If you dont mind a loooong winter and a short summer then you need to be aware of french people there. They are not friendly and snobs. I had been there because my relative live in Montreal and my bestfriend's sister live in Toronto. Its not fun. People there are not friendly and living is very expensive and looooong winter and short summer.

I live in Toronto. It's a good place but I want to move out of the neighbourhood I live in. Way too many noisy immigrants.

If moving to Toronto, you should go to a good neighbourhood. Go to a bad neighbourhood and prepare for a horrible life. London, Ontario is also nice.

None of those 3.
Toronto is terrible.
Montreal has french people (in other words, it's super terrible)
Vancouver is terrible, but the best of the 3.
I'd honestly go to Edmonton if you wanted to hit a big city.

Try find a nice smaller town. Not too small that it doesn't have anything to do, but not too big that it's riddled with drug and crime problems.

Oh, and just to reiterate.
Do NOT go to french Canada. Worst choice ever, lol.

I'm going to recommend Vancouver. It's a good city, if you like cities. If you don't, I would specificially recomend a charming little town just a little away from Vancouver called Ladner.

I'm gonna have to say Vancouver, mainly because I'm a biased British Columbia resident. I say Vancouver, but any of the neighbouring towns is just as good, Vancouver is probably just the one most would know.

Vancouver sucks. High taxes, very little amount of jobs, homeless people EVERYWHERE, the lowest minimum wage in Canada, and incredibly boring to be in.

It does have a good amount of forests and lakes though. Good for nature and such things, but that's all there really is that's good about Vancouver.

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    Nah every console starts early with low libraries

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
