The PlayStation 4 has been dominating the console scene against major rival Xbox One. With a considerable collection of exclusives, the PS4 has won the hearts of many gamers. Here are my 5 'reasons' for getting the PlayStation 4:
God of War 2018 - When the series first began with God of War on the PlayStation 2, it grabbed the attention of many gamers who then became fans of the series. Fast forward to some 13 years later and critics still herald it as probably the best game of the generation on the Playstation 4. With near perfect scores from critics and gamers, it will probably be an amazing experience for PS4 owners.
Horizon Zero Dawn - This is a post-apocalyptic world where machines in the form of dinosaurs have advanced to a point where the are considered wildlife of a higher form. You are from a 'savage' tribe that avoids contact with the machines sometimes revering them as 'gods'. This is an action adventure game where you see the world from Aloy's point of view and try to figure out how the machines and the natives fit into the narrative that is Horizon Zero Dawn. It is a somewhat challenging game that will require strategy to overcome the feats in the game.
Persona 5 - This is a stylish action turn-based JRPG that has you go back to high school and be as awesome as you wanted to be but never got the chance. However, you're not just an ordinary student. You will be presented with choices such as 'spending your afternoon with friends or go fight demons'. The more you play, the more the cast expands, the story unfolds, and the mystery deepens. Be warned: this is not a game for those seeking to finish it in a weekend or those who do not enjoy turn based games or JRPGs in general.
Nier Automata - It is a fast moving action game that is similar to Bayonetta and The Devil May Cry series, that tells the story of hot robots exploring a post apocalyptic ravaged Earth. This is a game that opens up the more you play. You will need about 5 playthroughs to get the complete story otherwise you will be left on cliffhangers even after the 2nd or 3rd playthrough. If you are a fan of the Metal Gear Series and hack & slash games, then Nier Automata will not disappoint. Edit: This game has been confirmed for the Xbox systems slated for July 2018.
The Last of Us Remastered - This violent and emotionally draining action adventure game, is considered a masterpiece from the PlayStation 3 era. It was remastered in 2014 for the PlayStation 4. The new PS4 version of the game is a marked technical improvement, with a smoother framerate and higher-res visuals overall. It also includes the Left Behind DLC, as well as a bunch of maps for the game’s largely underrated online multiplayer. Last of Us 2 has also been anounced and hopefully will see a 2018 release.
