need some PS4 advise...
« on: December 07, 2015, 03:08:33 am »

just got my 'son' (ah hem) a PS4 for christmas.   I know he has been dying to play Fallout4, however I need to get a game for me as well.

I'm have trouble deciding between the following

The Witcher 3
Shadows of Mordor
Bloodborne
Evolve
Alien Isolation

Curious if anyone has any thoughts on well made fun PS4 game.

It might help if you could give examples from previous generations of games that you enjoyed.

FWIW, Star Wars Battlefront is a lot of fun to play.

it came with battlefront, so I'll get to try that one out.

but I like lots of different games.  was a big fan of the dark souls series, and like RPG's in general.  I've played my share of FPS too.  I've never tried a survival game other than Dead Space 3.  Shadows of Mordor looks like new take on the assassins creed game play, which on one hand I like, but on the other hand, I've been playing a ton of that genre lately.  I'm kind of in the mood for a really well done single player campaign of something.  I heard Last of Us was really good. 

I know there are some new games out like BO3 and what not, but I really want to try some of the titles I missed over the last year or so.  I remember Evolve looked really cool when it came out, but as it is multiplayer only, I wonder if it still has enough people playing to make it worth it. 

Also I'm going to get myself a set of wireless surround sound headphones, which is why I thought a game like Alien Isolation might make good use of them.  but I've never played a game like that and I never could play any of the resident evil games.  for whatever reason I could never make it past the first level.

Awesome game. Huge open world, lots and lots of quests and free DLC, great story, and has won tons of awards to boot. The fighting is well done. I just finished the first expansion.

This game will require a couple months to complete.

sweet, I haven't played any of the witcher series before, but I've really wanted to play this game since it was announced.  I'm glad to hear that it has lived up to expectations.

I thought about making the switch, but in the end I had to stick with my gut and stay with PS.

The witcher lore isn't too deep, and when you start Witcher 3 there will be an early Q&A session where you choose how you want the game's history (ending to Witcher 2) to be set up. When you play it, you may want to look up some options online so you'll know what sort of world you're walking into.

I've had both and I enjoy the Xbox way more. If you're using multiple accounts and controllers, Playstation UI is a mess to get configured. Guess it's just all about preference.

probably so, I cant afford both, and I'm more familiar with PS, so in the end, I just stuck with what I'm familiar with.

though XBOX does have a couple exclusives I've wanted to try.

I like Xbox One better but to each their own.  As for games, I really like Elder Scrolls Online.  If you like RPG's it is one of the best.  It has all the free roaming like you have in Skyrim and Oblivion but adds multiplayer with out it getting in the way too much.  I have really started to enjoy the PvP aspect of the game as well.

I was disappointed with fallout 4. Lacks so much depth that people are use to having.

Like what, if I may ask? It's pretty dang deep IMO, with the numerous settlements to build and maintain, not to mention the now actual use for so many previous 'junk' items from older Fallout games. The customization for weapons, armor, and companions is ridiculously deep. The map is ridiculous and the content will keep my busy until February, at least.

The story line just didn't add up to me.  So you are out searching for a loved one and one of the first things you do is join a group that has nothing to do with your kid?  That might be nit picky but I enjoy the story that a game tells as much as the game itself.  I want to run through and do every quest in ever area.

Out of those you listed, The Witcher 3.

You should probably just play Fallout 4, though.

I've heard good things about Witcher but I haven't played it yet.  I might need to give it a shot.

Based on what you said above about Fallout, wanting to do every quest, you will/would probably love the Witcher 3. There are soooooo many quests, sooooo many mysterious areas to check out, and the story is 10x better than Fallout. Hands down, best game I've played all year long.

OK, that does it.  I will be buying it as soon as I get some time away from work.  Thanks.

That's fair. It is a "good open world sandbox" but it does lack a compelling story.

You're welcome. Wait till you get to Skellige. There are so many islands and areas at sea with little '?' all over the place. I'm still not halfway to getting them all. I probably wont unless the next DLC puts me in Skellige for a long period of time.

me too.  my son was giving me crap for spending all my time working on my settlements and not doing missions, and I give him crap for not collecting easily available scrap that could be used to modify his weapons. 

I think it represents a major step up from previous versions.
