10 PS4 games you have to play & the reasons why – the titles that will define next-gen

OPM: Not all at once obviously, that would be tricky. However, this is our must play list for PS4: the games that we think are going to set the standard for the next generation of PlayStation. It’s a mix of familier faces and a few surprises that will define Sony’s new console (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Outlast, PS4, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Tom Clancy’s The Division, Watch Dogs)

My top 5 most anticipated must play PS4 games:-

1) KZ Shadow fall - The graphical fidelity, and the totally customisable multiplayer.

2) The Division - Pure next gen open world multiplayer gameplay

3) Infamous Second Son - It's infamous with perma-destruction

4) Battlefied 4 - Levolution, 64 players, 60fps

5) Destiny - It's Bungie, it's MMOFPS (I'm still dubious about the price structure though)

EDIT: Honorary mentions

6) Titanfall - (yes I know... I know...)
7)FFXV - I've been waiting years... and it looks goooood
8)MGS V: Phantom pain (or is that Ground Zeroes) - It's Metal Gear, it's Kojima. 'nuff said.
9)Watchdogs - The New Assassins Creed
10) Diablo 3 - Yes I'm waiting for the PS4 superbundle edition.

What the pricing on destiny?
ArchangelMike  +   300d ago
It's not been announced yet, but I can bet it's either going to be a subscription model, or f2p micro-transaction model. I hope they make it like Guild Wars where you only pay for the boxed (or digital) copy of the game, but I can't see Activision allowing that.

Very solid list. Whats the DIII superbundle?
gedden7  +   300d ago
The thing that sucks is only 2 of the games are exclusive first/second party games...
warewolfSS  +   300d ago
Man look at all those exclusives...

Sarcasm in case u didn't realize it

their number one game is a third-party game that's also available on current gen platforms. Someone please explain to me how assassin creed defines next gen, i'm not kidding.
GryestOfBluSkies  +   300d ago
i agree with you. out of all of those games, thats probably the last one id choose to play. not that i think it wont be good, but im tired of yearly releases.
ArchangelMike  +   300d ago
It really is quite poor for the Official Playstation Magazine to vote for a third party title as it's must play PS4 game. And not just any title, but an Assassins Creed title. A franchise that everyone acknowledges is getting stale.

Personally, I wouldn't buy any current generation game if I know there's also a next-gen version in development, especially if they're being released simultaneously (or close).

It's not that AC defines next-gen, rather that I just don't want to play a game knowing that I'm not really getting the full experience that the game has to offer.

I'm out of breath reading that sentence. *PHEW!*

Graphical fidelity? Levolution? Are you sure that's your own opinion/choice of words or are you just biting off of what developers have been saying in every freaking article? Also why the hell is boring ass generic Assasins creed on this list? The only thing that game defines is repetitiveness.
MartinB105  +   300d ago
It's a pretty reasonable list. Assassin's Creed IV is actually my only PS4 launch game (aside from PS+ and F2P freebies), so I'm quite happy to see it at the top of the list.

The Witness is actually my most anticipated PS4 game, but it's not a launch day game unfortunately.

InFamous Second Son will blow everything else out of the water in the early days.

I've never seen gameplay so smooth.
Quicktopick  +   300d ago
U shud see the latest Gif's. It's way ahead of the next gen in terms of graphics
Roccetarius  +   300d ago
I certainly hope that's sarcasm. :)
medman  +   300d ago
The Division, Destiny, Infamous Second Son, Killzone Shadow Fall, and The Order 1886 for me at this point. Pending activity from Naughty Dog, Guerilla, Media Molecule, Quantic Dream, Sony Santa Monica, etc. etc.

When an article mentions '10 PS4 games', you assume they are talking about exclusives. Half of the 10 games are on both consoles, and by definition, not 'PS4 games'. I will get them on Xbox though :P Ill only get the exclusives on PS4 most likely.
