Several posts in to a PS exclusives discussion and no one has mentioned The Show? If you have even a passing interest in baseball or sports games pick up this season's or last season's game. Easily one of the best PS exclusives.

Everything Frisky said but the thing I'd add is that it is a super hero game so there is a big emphasis on getting new powers and having a bunch of really fun mobility options. I'd say the main reason I love the inFamous series actually is because of how much fun it is to zip across the map, they especially nailed it in Second Son.

 

As for mindless I am not sure how it is on easy but honestly on normal/expert in this series you've always died pretty fast so you have to be pretty mindful or you will be restarting an area a lot, can't really just go in guns blazing or you will die a lot. Not to say it's a very challenging game or anything but your time to death is pretty short.

Thanks... this is exactly what I needed.  In for Second Son and The Order from this sale.  Deciding AGAINST Killzone based off of the reviews here :)

Hey guys, seriously considering getting a PS4 this week, any recommendations for PS4 only games I need to get?

I realize it's also on PC but Nioh is worth a mention since it's exclusive to PS4 in the console world.

i assume this is b/c it is not on sale. If they waited this long, then why not wait for all star break edition for ~$20.

You can get a 12 month for 45.99 at

using the ps8  code at checkout

For me on PSN it's still better deal, I have sony rewards card and have $15 in points.

Going to just buy a $50 card, have $35 in amazon credit and $20 in my psn wallet.

 

Only issue is this will leave me with $70 credit, minus ps+, and I'll have $20 left.

So for those of you complaining about TLOU2 and those that claim this is the first time they remember of an open lesbian as a protagonist... thanks for making me feel old... Fear Effect 2 did it back in the day

So should I get Horizon vanilla or complete edition?

 

Pay the extra and go complete.

DLC, Theme, and Artbook. 

 

If you end up liking HZD, you will want the DLC. And the Theme is exclusive to the Complete and CE, I think the Artbook was also..

I got a PS4 on Black Friday. The console exclusives I recommend are below. Of course your choice of genre will determine if you like these games. I've gotten most of them for under $15 and I'm nowhere close to finishing all of them.

Uncharted Collection
Uncharted 4 (I'm still on 3, but hoping it is more of the same)
Nioh
Bloodborne
Street Fighter 5
Horizon Zero Dawn
God of War (newest version, rented)
Until Dawn
Many PSVR games
Nier Automata (will be coming to Xbox soon)

Still need to continue playing The Order and Last of Us before knowing if they are must plays. I'm not digging the stealth at the beginning of Last of Us. Feels like The Evil Within a little.

Uncharted 4 shows a lot of Last of Us influence but at its core is still an Uncharted game. I hope you enjoy God of War, I know I did enough to get the Platinum in just under two weeks lol also Nioh may be one of my favorite games in a long time it’s just very addicting I think. It can be very difficult and if you want to be good and get far in it you’ll need to sink many hours into it so be warned. I’m at the end game right now and I definitely recommend taking advantage of the help you can get through the Torii gate. The only repercussion for dying is restarting the level rather than risking the loss of all Amrita and wasting items. Oh and Horizon Zero Dawn is another gem! Definitely enjoyed that one and got the platinum as well!

So your issue is that you buy plus and have the same amount of credit in your wallet as when you started? Jealous.

Lol... new to PS4 like me, huh?

 

Anyone weird like me and have a hard time finishing games they have emotional ties to?  I'm having that issue with TLOU.  I'm close to the end, but don't want to finish so my experience won't end.  It took me almost two years to watch the final episode of LOST...

Okay, I totally get loving Joel and wanting to play as him. I also get not liking Ellie as a character makes you less interested in the game. But you said "they're trying way too hard to be progressive"; because of what? Ellie is the character she is. She is now the focal point of the next game. This is not the first (nor will it be the last) time a narrative game changes who the main playable character is (MSG2 anyone?) It comes across as you simply not liking the change because you think there is some more 'sinster' political plot and not just a story to be told.

It makes me wonder if you were/are as upset with the switch from Marcus to JD in Gears 4 or from Frank to Chuck in DR2 of from Cole to Delsin in Infamous. 'Cause it seems that the side story of Uncharted LL seems to have struck a nerve. Is it *really* just the change of protagonist?

That MGS2 swap was a huge surprise to everyone and a pretty big Fuck you as well. I don't think anyone was happy with that swap and deceit.

 

Sigh, there's no sinister political plot, I just found it convenient that they decided to push for this now given the current state of affairs. I've explained myself multiple times in previous posts, it really is as simple as that.

What exactly is the “current state of affairs”?

I was like that with Fallout 3. Still haven't finished it because I didn't want to see the game end. I enjoyed playing it that much.

I also thought it was the weakest of the Infamous games.  Not much in side mission variety and a pretty quick plat.  It doesn't have as much to do as other open world games from what I remember (it has been a couple years).  Certainly worth a playthrough but it could have been a lot better IMO.

Since you haven't played PS3, also look into the Heavy Rain remaster.

I really need to play this.  One of the few PS3 games I wanted to play but never did.

So is Shantae and The Pirates Curse considered the good one? Worth it at that price?

Yes and yes.

Is it sad I remember Infamous SS more for being a really good looking game at the time. I remember the PS4 didn't really have a decent exclusive at the time, and that was one of the first claims to that. It was an alright game, but felt super repetitive after a short while IMHO.

The order 1866 is cheap, when on sale. Its damn good, most of the negatives are because its kinda short.. $60 when new with all the hype and there were a lot of butt hurt people. But sub $10 its a great game.
I wish they would have made dlc for it.

This year has not really followed like previous years though. Lots of sales, and especially flash sales, that haven't followed the usual patterns.
Also, we are too early in the day to know for sure that there isn't a flash sale.

Debating between picking up the RE7 season pass versus Gran Turismo Sport.  Has anyone played the RE7 season pass content?  Is it worth it for $15 or should I continue to wait for the price to drop?  Thanks in advance for any advice.

Was just going to mention this..
Didnt we have a back to back flash sale, or like a week between them?
