We’re still about 2 weeks out from September 7th. I’ve been patiently waiting for the Spider-man PS4 Pro to drop and I decided to take the time that I have while I wait to make a wishlist of the games I plan on buying for the console as well as some games I’m considering.
I finally took the plunge and got a PS4. It’s the only console I haven’t touched this generation. I always wait a few years before buying a Sony console. The Playstation 3 did nothing for me, but I loved the original Playstation and… had a love/hate relationship with the Playstation 2. I have a handful of games that I plan on buying for my new PS4 Pro.
Exclusives I Want:
Bloodborne is the game I want to play the most on PS4. It’s incredibly cheap and I’ll probably start playing that before Spider-man on September 7th. I love the aesthetic, bosses, and how fast the gameplay looks. I can’t wait to play this game.
Horizon Zero Dawn
Horizon Zero Dawn is second, possibly third, on my list of games that I want on PS4. I love the graphics, they’re fucking breathtaking, but I’m not sure on everything else. I never say no to another open world game to play through and I plan on enjoying this one.
Spider-man looks great. It looks like it’s competing with Batman for the best superhero game. I can’t wait to play this one. I really hope it’s as good as it looks and this game, along with the next one on this list, helped me finally buy a PS4.
God of War
I’ve always hated the God of War series… until I saw this one in action. It looks really fucking good and I want it. I like the changes that were made to the series with this game and, I don’t believe I’m about to say this, I can’t wait to play as Kratos and kick some ass.
I’ve never played a Persona game. I’ve always been more of a Nintendo guy than a Playstation one and, sadly, the Persona series has stuck with Sony outside of a game or two on the 3DS. I want to see what this game is all about and if it’s anything like Shin Megami Tensei I know I’ll end up loving it.
Red Dead Redemption 2
I love Westerns in movies, television, and gaming. I try to go out of my way to play every Western game that releases because there is not a lot of them. Of the few, there is only a handful of them I would consider good and fewer great. I can’t wait for this game. It looks incredible and hyped for it.
Games I’m Thinking About Double Dipping On:
The Elder Scrolls Online
My brother recently got a PS4 and he fucking loves it. Which is no surprise to me because he’s always been a hardcore Playstation fan, but what is surprising is that he’s considering playing ESO. My brother is NOT an Elder Scrolls fan at all so this is pretty exciting news for me because I would have no problem double dipping on ESO if that means I can play with my younger brother.
Ni No Kuni 2
Ni No Kuni 2 is fantastic. I love it to death and it’s one of those games that I wouldn’t mind owning on another platform. The gameplay is great, the graphics are great, and it’s just a fun game to get lost in for a few hours. I bet this game would look amazing on my new TV too.
Games I’m Still Considering:
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
I’m totally buying this game, but I’m, sort of, debating between getting it on PC or PS4. I’m most likely going to stick with PC because of the higher framerates and I’m not sure how much I’m going to like playing with the new Dualshock controller on the PS4. But… it’s on the list because I am thinking about playing it on my big ass TV instead of on my monitor…
And that’s it. I don’t want a whole lot of games on the PS4. It’s going to be my backup platform because I’m not abandoning PC gaming and, as of right now, I still place the Switch above the PS4, but that could always change. Do you have a PS4? What are some of your favorite games on it?
