Just noticed that the PSVR has dropped in price everywhere and I'm sorely tempted - especially as I'm high risk and it would be nice to go further than my front door, even if it's virtually :D:houllier:. Sony have confirmed it will be compatible with the PS5 but is it worth getting one now or are they likely to produce a new souped up version within the next year? I'm not quite sure how the technology works ... does the quality of the headset have any bearing on the quality of what you're watching or is it all about the console (eg will you NEED a better headset to keep up with the technology or will the current one suffice?)
Just seen this. Yes it's worth getting one, but you should try before you buy if can can.

The current one will get a good bump due to a more powerful console and and that SSD. Move controller's still not optimal though, hopefully they release an upgraded set soonish...

Yea that first boss fight was what solidified how I felt about that game. Superb... (chef's kiss)

You heathen what was wrong with God of War????

I'd say Horizon Zero Dawn or Sekiro should be your next game.
God of War (thought it was awful, didn’t play past the first boss) :eek:

Horizon: Zero Dawn is a fantastic game with a very good single player story campaign. Can't wait for Forbidden West to come out for PS5 :drool:
Okay, I guess the consensus is to give God of War another go...

Can anyone recommend me some games? I switched fairly late from XB1 to PS4 this generation, and feel like I still have a lot to cover.

So far I’ve played:

- Uncharted 4 (tried playing the collection too, but the first game felt so outdated, I couldn’t get into it)
- Spider-Man
- Last of Us 1 & 2
- Jedi Fallen Order
- God of War (thought it was awful, didn’t play past the first boss)

Any others to get through? I prefer single-player narrative-driven games, no online multiplayer shite
Bro don’t even think about it. It would be like fecking your wife's sister without make up. Wait for PS5.

I don’t know what’s stranger. That analogy or you telling him to get a console and not a PC.

I’m just saying it would be incredibly stupid to get a PS4 or any iteration of the console, however bad of an analogy it was. Whatever you do, don’t get a PS4, or PS4 pro right now.

Although, it's a marvellous organisation, Sony, just fantastic.Nevertheless, wait for mid November.

In not too distant future, we’ll talk about graphical fidelity mate.
In the near future you’d be in the middle of my shit list between @Mr Pigeon and @esmufc07 who both stink, if you ever dare to attack the brand that my good friend @Alock1 build. He doesn’t need to log in and see your attacks on Xbox. What ever your problems are with Bill Gates just remember Alock is a ordinary man like us. Xbox is build by people like us. Think about that before you preorder one.

I hope your not talking about the new GoW. :nono:. I wasn’t a fan of the earlier ones tbh. The new GoW however is insanely brilliant and a hundred times better. Just pure epicness. Uncharted Lost Legacy, until dawn is a simple fun game of trying to keep your guys alive through the story with decisions. Yakuza 0 is a masterpiece if you want to try a Japanese game.

You'd be missing out on one the best games ever on this console in Uncharted 2. Yes the graphics might feel dates but majority of mechanics are still there and above all the story line is brilliant and immersive.

I played the entire collection this year and glad I went from 1-4 and followed the plot properly. Uncharted 1 is a bit meh for sure and a pretty bog standard treasure hunt compared to others but it doesn't take very long. But really the second one is the goat. Literally from the very first frame of the game and the way it starts is absolutely brilliant and one of my most enjoyable gaming sequences.

Horizon Zero Dawn has been mentioned already, I'd definitely recommend that. I'd add Nier: Automata, a rare RPG that combines excellent combat mechanics with fantastic storytelling.

If you're into FromSoft games: Bloodborne is the big exclusive of course. One of the greatest games of the generation for me.

Cuphead is coming to PS4. Perhaps even late today? Either way, if you have not played this game yet, it's a must-play. Absolutely fantastic game. I loved it so much I got every achievement on Xbox. I'm hopeful the DLC is going to come out real soon.

GoW3 >> GoW4.

GoW4 for all the graphic goodness is repetitive as feck. I was yawning by the 6th time I had to fight the man with no name.

What's people list of the best games released on the PS4 this year? They don't have to be exclusive. I think for me

Nioh 2
Ghost Of Tsushima
FF7 remake - part 1
The Last of US 2

Cyberpunk will probably take the cake.

I also found God Of War so overrated, I cannot for the life understand how many game sites rate as the best on the PS4. The only bits that were actually great was
Fighting Balder, which happened like twice.

For my money, the best PS4 game.

Nah GOW is fecking brilliant, excellent combat, great story and classic soundtrack. I went into it thinking I wouldn’t really like it having never played the previous titles but I was so wrong, it’s a must play for me.

I'd go (exclusives only)..

1. God of War
2. Persona 5 (Royal)
3. Horizon
4. TLOU2
5. Spiderman

FFVII Remake and Uncharted 4 were good, too. Narrowly miss out.

Red Dead 2 should be far higher IMO. Its miles better than GTA and even games like Spiderman to be honest.

It's strange, I also was a bit underwhelmed by God of War. I finished it, but couldn't understand the fuss. Anyway, I'm pretty new to all of it, but here are my favourites (in addition to what you've mentioned):

- Red Dead Redemption 2; Uncharted 2; The Witcher 3; Horizon Zero Dawn, Control; Arkham Knight (I also love Arkham Asylum and City, which have been remastered for PS4); Until Dawn

God of War was good but it just didn't really wow me. I can't really see what makes it so special but to each their own.

My top 5 would be;

Witcher 3
Persona 5
Resident Evil 2
Death Stranding
Alien Isolation (old game was out on the PS3 too but i still really liked it)

Feck, I just realized I wrote this on the page before.

GOW has a really unique and interesting one shot camera, never cuts away for yeh whole game. Great combat, good story and fantastic music. It’s undoubtably a special game, even if it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.

God of War for me might not just be the best PS4 exclusive, but probably the best Sony exclusive ever.

How the hell is Uncharted TLL higher up than RDR2 & Uncharted 4? Thought it was the most underwhelming game in the series.

Car Mechanic Simulator ... I love that game. Wasted hours and hours and hours doing exactly the same things to really shitty looking rusty cars.

Last of Us Part 2 is being overrated. It's not as good as what these reviewers are giving it. Read Dead 2 being at that position is rubbish - it was a better game than Last of Us 2.

The gameplay was superb and easily the best in the series and I wasted so many hours getting the platinum but, it's still an unfinished game with an unsatisfying story. The twist at the end is fine, it's just how it's done that annoyed me (the mission just appears in the menu with no special prompt). The characters are very forgettable too; seriously, what happened to Ocelot?

On another note, I wasted so many hours getting those damn trophies :lol:
