Pre-Uncharted 4, What’s Your Favorite PS4 Game To Date?

I think it's important to ask this question now because after Uncharted 4: A Thief's End arrives, that may end up topping a lot of lists. 😉

So, to date, what is your favorite PlayStation 4 game?

Is it a game everyone else loves, or is it more of an underdog? It's okay to have a dark horse sitting atop the list; besides, you might be able to recruit more fans if you post up the title of that lesser-known game here. Of course, chances are, we've all heard of it but that doesn't mean we've played it. Remind us! Tell us what we might've missed!

I think mine is still The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt . That game just got me. Not only did it feature a setting I just love, but it also had the best way to produce a huge open world in my opinion: Break it up into two very large yet very distinct and surprisingly accessible areas, which also helps to drive the narrative forward, as the second area isn't immediately open. And the second half of the story was absolutely fantastic; it's just too bad it took a while to get going.

I'll also add that those who continually harped on the combat had no clue how to really play and ignored some of the deeper strategic elements. In my experience, everyone who bashes the fighting basically just went through the game hammering on the attack button and dodging here and there. Just because you can get away with that doesn't mean there's not more to the system. At any rate, if the new Assassin's Creed really does take design cues from The Witcher 3 in terms of open-world structure, I'll be psyched .

Speaking of which, Assassin's Creed Syndicate is definitely in my top 5. Again, I'm ignoring the morons who bash the game; most of them have never even played it, as far as I can tell. And Ubisoft's presentation of Victorian-era London is absolutely incredible, if people would just take a few moments to stand and appreciate that accomplishment. Plus, the refined and improved combat and overall movement, including the new grappling hook that makes city traversal much faster and more dynamic, and some truly solid characters (the protagonists and villain were the most fleshed-out of any characters in the series to date), makes this a gem. Loved it to pieces.

The recently released Ratchet and Clank remake is definitely in my top 5, too. Normally, I wouldn't cite a remake but this is just way too remarkable to ignore. And it feels so much like a brand new experience that it deserves a spot on my list. Then there's Rocket League , which is just a blast and a half and then some, The Order: 1886 , a game that received more unfair and even downright idiotic backlash, and the wonderfully engaging game with the super-high EQ rating, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture .

Honorable mentions would be Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition , inFamous: Second Son, Bastion , and Until Dawn . I should probably add Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain but frankly, though I know it's absolutely amazing, it just didn't make me fall in love with it. There are numerous reasons why but let's just say that the farther I get from it, the less I like it. Not really sure why.

What's your list look like?

The Order 1886 is definitely a game I love, and think gets bashed far more than is deserved. It was a beautiful game, that had a great story and combat. Also I would have to say The Last of US Remastered, I know it's a re-release, but it is just an awesome game all around. I also have enjoyed what I've played of Tales of Zesteria so far. Can't wait for Uncharted 4 though!!

Destiny
Bloodborne
TLoU Remaster

FO4 will be inserted somewhere on this list above but I need to play more to know just where it stands.

Transister is an honorable mention.

MGSV was great but had me conflicted for being so different. It also felt off when thinking that I actually enjoyed SC Blacklist more overall, despite being of a lesser quality mechanically.

AC Black Flag was another real good one that probably should be on my top 5, but I can't decide if I liked it more or less than Drive Club…

Mine is the same as it'll be post-Uncharted 4: Divinity Original Sin Enhanced Edition. Since playing my first RPG some 20-odd years ago, I didn't expect to feel that thrill & surprise anymore. Divinity brought all that!!! I've enjoyed many games, but this blew me away!

I hope they bring II over to consoles. 😻

If we are talking about Exclusives mine goes to Bloodborne.

I got platinum in that game, and beat it about 4 times using different builds and weapons.

My list for exclusives gooooees like this.

Bloodborne
Helldivers
Earth defense force 4.1
Knack
The Order 1886

The Witcher 3 I loved but it is a multiplat game.

I find myself popping in Assassin's Creed: Syndicate every so often.. I guess that's my top go-to game for now.

But my uber first love for all things technical and digital artistry is The Order 1886. Syndicate may have all the details (which I am superbly amazed at, superbly amazed), but it's The Order that really made me weep at how beautiful a game can get when so much love and skillful passion is poured into it.
