I usually wait to buy a console until there's a game that I have to play and God of War was that game. I've been a fan of the series since the PS2 days and this game did not disappoint. Spider-Man was incredible and could have been a trilogy of movies - there's that much content. Just started HZD yesterday and so far, it looks great.TSR wrote: ↑Mon Feb 03, 2020 2:54 pmIf you liked Nioh (I did too), I'd guess you'd really like Sekiro. It's HARD but very, very good.babyboglehead wrote: ↑Mon Feb 03, 2020 12:29 pmI knew there had to be at least some of us on here. Given limited playing time the past decade or so I have been playing for the first time most of the big games from the last 5-6 years. I have a huge backlog of PS Plus games, which are conveniently mostly the big games I missed. Just wrapping up Nioh and loving the tight (and very unforgiving) combat and deliciously grim 1600s Japanese aesthetics.
Zelda Breath of the Wild was probably worth the price of the Switch by itself.
All the Playstation exclusives have been nailing it recently.
God of War - I never played any of the GOW games before this, but always had a thing for Greek and Norse mythology, and having a son around the age of the main character's didn't hurt.
Horizon Zero Dawn
Only recently played Metal Gear Phantom Pain. It was amazing if you were ever a fan of the genre and missed it the first time around (barring the laughably unnecessarily skimpy clothing of certain female snipers).
Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War were also both amazing.
Diablo 3 was great but haven't played in a few years, really looking forward to the next one.
On PSVR - Beat Saber is amazing and my go-to game to let people try out the VR as it is fun, intuitive, and a zero nausea experience. If you have coin, Skyrim VR is also amazing. Being a sneak archer never felt so gratifying as using 2 PS move controllers to aim the bow and arrow respectively. Rush of Blood, while short, is also extremely gratifying to play with two move controllers.
Guilty pleasure: Minecraft. I play it with my kids mostly, but sometimes even playing alone in our shared world there is something Zen about the monotony of putting up fences around a newly discovered village.
I've been playing Outer Worlds and it's pretty good.
Recently finished the Darksiders series (1-3) - hack/slash games with (what I think is) a compelling/fun story line.
As mentioned earlier, the Mass Effect series is without peer and is some of the greatest storytelling ever. Rumor has it that they're planning on re-releasing with updated graphics (UE4, I think), but it's definitely not confirmed. My coworker is a HUGE fan and sent me an infographic that was put out by BioWare for ME3 and there were some wild stats (based on decisions that were made throughout the series) - I couldn't figure out how to attach it here with spoiler tags, but if anyone's interested, just PM me and I'll send it to you.
Really enjoying this thread!
