Good PS4 Games to pick up early on?
« on: February 21, 2019, 09:51:40 pm »
Might be getting a PS4 soon, wanted to pick peoples' brains for when I can get more games for it. I usually play JRPGs and SRPGs and whatnot. Will be getting Guacamelee 2, Horizon Zero Dawn, and a few other games via gameshare when I can but otherwise I'm mostly on my own. Digital games a plus b/c the drive might have issues (that i think I can easily fix). Also keep in mind my main priorities for purchases are Dragon Quest 11 and Super Robot Wars V so I'll be good on the JRPG and SRPG front for a while.

If you haven't already played it on PS3 (or Vita I think), I HIGHLY recommend Natural Doctrine. It's a great game that critics did not understand. I played it start to finish and reviewed it on YouTube. It's a tactical RPG with a table-top wargaming bent. The main sticking point is the initiative system/turn order. Once you understand that it's super fun.

The first Hotline Miami.
Now you're playing in... three dimensions.

Yakuza Kiwami is real good you should definitely check it out, Sexy Brutale too, just don't be turned away by the name, the story is more than worth it, it feels like a mash of Majoras Mask and Megaman with the aesthetics of Clue.

I think a lot of things would be cheaper on PC and would not particularly benefit from PS4 hardware.

This suddenly reminded me to check in on Midnight Animal, that much-anticipated Hotline Miami mod, but apparently it died a bad death.

I'm gonna get 0 then Kiwami I think. Both are inexpensive relatively speaking now.

There's a certain level beyond which my PC cannot run games.

yeah well perhaps at this particular point in time upgrading your pc might be more reasonable than getting a ps4.
most things are cross-platform nowadays, and ps4 isn't even backwards-compatible, so it makes the most sense to go for it if you do it for the exclusives.
but the official list of ps4 exclusives is sadly rather brief. here's another, with reviews.
just consider your options.

Just thought of this. Wikipedia has two long lists of games for PS4, I think it's A-L and M-Z. They can be arranged by genre so you can see all the RPGs they have at a glance.
Now you're playing in... three dimensions.

It wasn't even supposed to get here until tomorrow! So I've been playing loaner copies of Mortal Kombat XL (oddly enough the UK version) and Nier Automata.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 is fantstic. I'm really enjoying A Hat in Time too, though it's buggier than people let on. Nier: Automata is great, and I second Yakuza 0. Maybe the best game on the system.
