The comment on the video game 'Mario Kart 8 Deluxe' from ign.com, it says:

The Verdict
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is an amazing game for all the same reasons I mentioned in our original review. It’s still a gorgeous kart racer and every bit as addictive as it was in 2014. This is the best entry in the series so far, and it has all the content you’ll need. Returning players have seen a lot of this game before, but the overhauled Battle mode and its five additional ways to play are a great reason to pick it up. Nintendo didn’t do enough to make the online experience better, but the rest of this game holds up well.

why not every bit is as addictive as it was in 2014?

2.

Thanks!

PS I also posted the same question on this , but all of your answers are unique to me. Hope we can discuss with each other. Thank you.

1.
why not every bit is as addictive as it was in 2014? 'every bit' is an intensifier.

eg Tom is as charming as he was last year.

2.

why not a lot of these games?
('a lot of + plural noun'

'see a lot of' here means 'see many parts of'.

eg I have seen a lot of France.

This means I have seen many parts of France.
