What do you think the best PS4 game will be within the first year?

GamesRadar - The PlayStation 3 was the console for exclusives this generation, and that's a trend Sony appears to be attempting to continue with the upcoming PlayStation 4. It's already lined up a suite of awesome-looking AAA games from first and third-party developers, ensuring that there are experiences you can only get on the PS4. (PS4)

I'll put my money on Second Son.

Probably the Witcher 3.

I could see this being the case from what we've heard of it

Witcher 3 and MGSV

Witcher 3 or MGSV.
Nothing else, that's announced at least, seems like it will come close to matching those two.
JunioRS101  +   511d ago


MGS has undergone way too many changes since MGS4. I'm very skeptical about how the game will work considering it's now 'open world' and it also will be running on xbox 360s.

Remember, its predecessor was too big to run on xbox 360s??

So, is this game SMALLER? As in less ambitious somehow?

That makes me skeptical. I don't know if it can live up to the hype. Kojima is really taking a gamble with this one, and while I hope it works out, I certainly don't think it will get a 10/10 like MGS4. Maybe not even a 9.5, and MGS games need to be top quality.

Witcher 3. Runner up will be The Division if it comes out within the first year.
Campy da Camper  +   511d ago
Gotta admit, if the division looks and plays like the E3 video and on consoles, it could be a killer app. I gave up on fps mp after world at war feeling games changed since the days of rainbow 6. The Division looks to pull me back in.
JsonHenry  +   511d ago
Speaking of Rainbow Six I can't wait for the new one. I REALLY miss the old days of Raven Shield.
walkincarpet  +   511d ago
I don't get the infamous love. I played Infamous and Little Big Planet when Sony offered them for free when they got hacked and got bored of both in a few weeks. A;so Killzone is a b shooter compared to the xbox FPS games so I'm wondering if that will change on PS4? Unless Sony is hiding something their best games in the first year will be multiplatform like BF4, Division, Destiny. ...forgot about witcher 3 and MGS 5....

Speaking of hiding, sony will make waves if they reveal the last guardian as a ps4 system seller at gamescon.

LBP is for a niche audience. You need to be very creative and patient to get to the meat of the entertainment. It's perfectly understandable for it not to be your cup of tea. Your in the same boat as most (me included). I'm curious to try out LBP Vita since the touch controls supposedly make it easier/less tedious to build levels.

I LOVED Infamous 1 and 2. But one huge negative is that they aren't the type of games you play over and over again (Two times max to experience the good and evil scenarios). The first one suffered from a lot of repetition in terms of side missions, glitches, bad lip syncing, and screen tearing.

Infamous 2 fixes all these problems (and is an overall better game IMO), but it wasn't as challenging as Infamous 1 was.

Its all a matter of opinion really.

DotA2 with keyboard mouse support on PS4

I'm not really interested in any of the PS4 games yet. I'll wait for pricedrops for the majority of them.

The Evil Within is the only one I'm buying day 1 for sure. Shinji Mikami ftw. But this game will also be out for the PS3 I believe. So really there isn't a single PS4 game i'm dead set on.

Lately i've been thinking about cancelling my nextgen preorder to be honest. I like having money. Knowing that I could drop what i'm doing and go take a trip somewhere or buy whatever I want is pretty awesome. THe freedom of being able to do whatever you want is better than anything the PS4 will offer.

I see the PS4 and XB1 as mainly being a benefit to PC gamers since their games will no longer be developed around older hardware. There isn't a single game that looks "must have."

What do I think will sell the most on the PS4?

Killzone will probably be the highest selling exclusive.

Call of Duty will probably sell the most copies.

GTA V will destroy all of these numbers anyways tho. So whatever.
dboyc310  +   511d ago
Second Son. I just love how much Sucked Punch have grown as a developer. I see them becoming like Naughty Dog. Where quality is present in anything they announce.
MidnytRain  +   511d ago
Lol, "Sucked Punch..."
GribbleGrunger  +   511d ago
Uncharted 4
the Last Guardian
The Agent

... are the obvious choices, but I'm going to plump for a rank outsider and say Second Son. It has sleeper hit written all over it.

... yes, I'm kidding.

(That should confuse everyone)

Just pointing out, none of those 3 have been really announced for PS4 yet lol.
walkincarpet  +   511d ago
that was my thought... those three would probably take the prize but not sure if they are releasing first year... or at all.
LOGICWINS  +   511d ago
When did Uncharted 4 get announced?
sobotz  +   511d ago
Then I choose Half Life 3, Persona 5, BF5, and GTAVI

majiebeast  +   511d ago
As of now Infamous:SS but we really havent seen much, Sony has unveiled 5 of their 20 games that would come out in year 1.

You can bet that the next Naughty Dog game will be unveiled at the VGA's its almost tradition. Santa Monica studio's seems to be about ready to show off their new IP if we go by the tweets of the voice actress. There is just too much we dont know yet to think about best game of the first year.
DigitalRaptor  +   511d ago
The thing is, you look at the multiplatform games and they seem to be above and beyond what any exclusive is doing.

The Witcher 3, Metal Gear Solid V, Final Fantasy XV, Assassin's Creed IV. There are just better looking multiplats than exclusives at this stage. Best PS4 game? my money is on MGSV.

From what we know now, Second Son looks to be the best PS4 exclusive in my opinion.
Ashunderfire86  +   511d ago
While everybody is saying Second Son(Big fan of Infamous Series), I'm going to take a huge breath and say The Order: 1886. I just have this feeling that it will be an instant classic with its life like graphics and gameplay. It would be interesting to see how Ready At Dawn use that seamless experience were players; will never see any difference between the cutscene and gameplay, which is very good. Too many cgi cutscenes in the past were better than the actual game.I see a possible coop multiplayer in the game, based on the trailer too.

I actually came here to say The Order. Good thinkin, bub
Campy da Camper  +   511d ago
Jesus I forgot about the order. So now I have to buy the order, second son, watch dogs, acbf, mgs5, the new uncharted which is sure to come out, Sony Santa Monica's new game, the division, destiny, media molecules new game...Jesus I need a clone.
Double_Oh_Snap  +   511d ago
EverQuest Next
JsonHenry  +   511d ago
mochachino  +   511d ago
I think highest selling will be BF4 on next-gen system first year.
USMC43  +   511d ago
Ummm MGS V anyone?!
ape007  +   511d ago
hell yes, i don't know why that game isn't getting major buzz, is it me? or because it's a multiplat so the fanboys ignore it???

game looks phenomenal, new ideas, new awesome fox engine and it's freaking mgs, the magic, the art style, it's better than all the games that everybody here talk about all the time like ryse, kz, infamous, forza 5 combined

to me best games will be

GTA V, MGS V, Watch Dogs and CoD Ghosts

USMC43  +   511d ago
You know, I do have a weird suspicion that MGS V will be coming in November or the rumored release date of early December. Why would Kojima go to all the trouble of developing it for PS360 for a Q2/Q3 launch. Obviously the install base, but the game seems to be LATE in development. He is going to GAMESCOM, so I assume we'll get an announcement then. Either way the wait is killing me.
HammadTheBeast  +   511d ago
GTA V on PS3. CoD Ghosts (personally for me) is the same old, they barely bothered to make something new for a whole new generation of consoles. Watch Dogs and MGS V on PS4/Xbox do look good though.
ape007  +   511d ago

gta V is same old? lol it even inspired hedio kojima

AceBlazer13  +   511d ago
The non fanboys can talk about the game if they'd like you know.

I would think it's not getting much hype cause of 3 reasons it's not exclusive so it's just another AAA title and because it's going open world which would imo seem kinda frustrating in a mgs game.or ppl just don't have enough to go on about yet. My bet is on the latter.
dcj0524  +   511d ago
There's 15 games we don't know about.
Williamson  +   511d ago
Infamous SS,killzone, and from only the trailer the order looks promising. We havent even seen what SSM and ND are working on, so thinking about what they could be working on is quite exciting.
christrules0041  +   511d ago
How can we predict which game will be the best game when we don't even know of all the games that come out in the first year the console is out?
rigbybot127  +   511d ago
Metal Gear Solid V, no question.
HappyWithOneBubble  +   511d ago
I have to agree with that. MGSV should be as epic as MGS4 or even better. Not one MGS game have disappointed me thanks to Kojima awesomeness.
rigbybot127  +   511d ago
I have to agree with that. MGS is among one of the most consistently top-notch series ever; each one ranging from amazing, to masterpiece. V will be no different.
TooTall19  +   511d ago
CertifiedGamer  +   511d ago
Ofbabalon, You know in a year from now, the games that still yet to be announced, that will be released by then.
ApolloTheBoss  +   511d ago
Either Second Son or The Witcher 3.
Pancit_Canton  +   511d ago
Order 1886
kingmushroom  +   511d ago
May be a game from sony santa monica
Goro  +   511d ago
Yakuza 6 (Japan)
It will no doubt be announced at TGS for PS4 in Japan.
The division. If it comes out in the first year. If not:

Best Exclusive will be Second Sons

Best MP will be MGSV

Best game overall MGSV
AirJohnston  +   511d ago
Well I'm gonna be optimistic and say that Final Fantasy XV comes out fall 2014 and becomes one of the best Final Fantasies.

But if I was being realistic, either MGSV or inFamous:SS. Don't sleep on The Order: 1886 either.
_FantasmA_  +   511d ago
The game with the fish that move out of the way. LOL jk I think The Order looks really good.
RM-TatoTiburon  +   511d ago
PS4 exclusive? Infamous
M-M  +   511d ago
Even though it's multiplat, Kingdom Hearts 3.
TheGrimReaper0011  +   511d ago
Knowing square enix, it'll take like at least 5 more years before Kingdom Hearts comes out.
Maybe they'll wait until it's like the 20th year of Kingdom Hearts.
Let's, see Kingdom Hearts 1 came out in 2002
So maybe 2022 we get Kingdom Hearts 3
And Kingdom Hearts 2 came out in 2006
So that would mean 16 years for a proper sequel!
Im just speculating here =P
N8  +   511d ago
MGSV just based off the fact I would buy a console just for the game if I had to
C-Thunder  +   511d ago
Too soon to tell, there's still a lot we don't know about.

Having said that, I'm most excited for Destiny, though Second Son will probably be the better game.
JunioRS101  +   511d ago
Because games take significantly less time for "time to triangle" on PS4, doesn't that mean that there will be less time in between official announcement and release date??

I hope so... More games, better quality, more frequently.
ForgivenZombie  +   511d ago
DESTINY, never under estimate this game. The more I hear about it, the more excited I get.
d4sholil1  +   511d ago
This is a tough one for me as I am looking forward to Watch Dogs, MGSV:PP, the Division, and Final Fantasy XV. Out of those three I would go with the Division simply because I'm most excited about this particular game. I think with the upcoming gen of hardware and what seems to be the transitional benchmark with games, I think online, open world, or both will offer us game of the year titles etc.

Out of all the titles, looking at the games that we know of, subjectively I would go with Knack...jk, I would still go with the Division...remember, this is subjective, not what I necessarily hope gets game of the year.
PeEsFour  +   511d ago
Lol... there are still 13 games we know nothing about, you can't really tell that at this point.... but the best game will probably be a new IP we don't know yet or the new Naughty God game.

Still very early to tell.. of the few exclusive presently, maybe The Order: 1886.
Karpetburnz  +   511d ago
I'm actually looking forward the the Order 1886, I really like the setting and I'm hoping for gameplay similar to uncharted. But with a darker theme.
