Gamemoir's Paul gives his top four games that would convince him to buy a new console.
64 player Battlefield 4 was worth it alone for the new consoles.
I first played BF3 on 360 and then a year or so later on PC and then 4 as well and IMO the player count for conquest and rush make the experience so much better, so if someone really enjoys BF then it is well worth the upgrade.
Forza 5 is definitely worth upgrading for if you are a racing fan. Other than that, there are really no must have next gen games that aren't available on other platforms. Second Son, Killzone and Ryse are all visually awesome, but I would have trouble telling someone to update just to play them. There are some next gen exclusives I love, such as Killer Instinct, Resogun, Powerstar Golf, Kinect Sports Rivals but I don't think they are system sellers. Most of the best games currently available for next gen are on multiple systems. Tombraider, Child of Light, Rayman, Titanfall, Max Curse of Brotherhood etc. That being said, I haven't turned on my 360 or PS3 since I upgraded so there is plenty to do. X1 UI/UX is especially very cool. And the games will come eventually!
Even forza is kinda last gen looking, don't get me wrong I enjoy it.
Visually it looks good just not mind blowing (cars look incredible with the very good reflections). However the addition of the new rumble triggers and drivatars is truly amazing and IMO should be a standard for racing games. The game is very much refined when it comes to gameplay but lacks content and trys to milk its buyers with DLC and more DLC. Even key features that were great for the social side of the game are lacking and IMO this is just BS. The game seems rushed and has less things then its predecessor and that is inexcusable. I love the game but at this point I pretty much have quite the dislike for turn 10, a dev that was once among my favorite
This was a PS4 list to be honest. That being said I would switch Killzone with Infamous.
The visual upgrade to 8th gen is not that great yet...I mean I noticed it right away when jumping to ps2 from ps one and ps3 from 2.With Gen 8 we actually have to do side by side comparisons with gen 7 just to locate the difference in graphic fidelity
I am finding it hard to justify my PS4 purchase right now. I have only had it for just over a month. I bought it for NBA 2014 and play that quite a bit. But I hardly play infamous Second Son. I also this week got Tomb Raider on the cheap and Killzone at a bargain basement £12! Problem is I played Tomb Raider to death on my 360. Finished it 100%. Not that bothered now. The biggest problem I have is that my PS4 does not recognise my HDMI Splitter which means I have to unplug all of my other consoles from my tv just to play it. As a result when I have a minute to play games I go for the quick option of my WiiU and or my 3DS. I am playing Etrian Odyssey Untold on my 3DS this week. PS4 is starting to gather dust. Trust me that is unheard of in my household.
Killzone sf is awful story is ok multiplayer is not good
