Sony's PlayStation 4 was probably waiting under the tree for many expectant gamers this year, after all it's had an amazing run of sales since its launch in 2013. And the lucky ones most likely got a game or two bundled with their device.
Not a ton of must-haves for me. Gotta be a pretty "shoot things is fun" or "open world omg so much stuff to do i luv tedium" to enjoy it quite yet.
Doesn't mean you can't enjoy the available games though, most of the real "must-haves" have been pushed into early 2015 which is not far away anymore. @Article: I would drop games like Watch Dogs from this list and add InFamous:SS, GTA5, Shadow Of Mordor, Far Cry 4, Binding Of Isaac:Rebirth or even Plants vs. Zombies:Garden Warfare instead.
Yeah I'm surprised Shadow of Mordor isn't on here instead of Watchdogs.
I just went to download the games IMMEDIATELY and guess what? PSN is DOWN.
I really liked the Evil Within and Alien Isolation myself. Watch Dogs will never make a must have list of mine. Not even sure why I'm keeping it around, I should sell that thing! But then I have to touch it... Yes IMO it was that bad
WatchDogs was horrible. I know people call Destiny the biggest disappointment of the year, but for me it was WatchDogs. At least I played about 60-70 hours of Destiny before it got stale. I could tell 30 minutes into WatchDogs that it was gonna be a turd. Wannabe GTA my ass. It couldn't touch Sleeping Dogs and that game had zero hype. I had more fun in LA Noire's limited open world than I did in WatchDogs.
I agree. Sleeping Dogs had no hype and I had never even heard of it. I thought the game was great! LA Noire was very good too. WD hyped for 2 years to be what they said it would be, only to release like a sad excuse for open world/next gen game was a huuuuuuuge disappointment
Destiny and Watch_Dog are both turd. Sleeping and Shadows of Mordor on the other hand are very underrated.
Is psn working yet? HArd to download stuff when it's down! Haven't tried PSN or XBL yet today..
PSN is working now for me on my Vita, but still not up on my PS4. I think it's working for some other people though! Hope it starts working on my side soon.
Can see my online friends but can't go on store or play online. Only got one more day off work and haven't been able to play any games yet really. Well I can offline, but it bugs me if trophies don't pop.
@Clown_Syndr0me Yea, this is pissing me off. I really wanted to hit up the Flash Sale. I hope these LizardKids get grounded from their computers until they're old enough to grow hair on their b***s.
@Balsonoid: Is the Store accessible on the PSN website?? You could jump on your pc and get some of those deals there and download them to your PS4 after. That is of course only if the website isn't down too!!
@Clown, Trophies pop up even when you are offline. Other than that I agree with you.
Yeah, it sucks that you can't look at your trophies when you're offline. I ended up just going to the movies yesterday because I got bored not being able to play my PS4 and Xbox One. I find it hard to believe that our govt. can tell that the massive hack that crippled Sony Entertainment was from North Korea, and yet they can't determine who the hell this pathetic Lizard Squad is after how many DDOS attacks now?
Thats actually a really good point.
i got on early last night on ps3 and then some some hours later on ps4. i have a friend who couldn't get on ps4 last night but try again.
Just a heads up, i got a malware warning when i went to click the link. Seems i'm getting malware warnings on every link today, odd.
Yeah, me too. I though the problem was on my end, since I'm on a shitty pc. wth is going on? I went trough anyway... I hope I haven't caught anything dangerous on my pc.
it happens to me too, every link almost.
It's been happening for awhile... This is day 2... No Links work on any articles... Only can see the comments and post comments.. I saw some comments yesterday that suggest someone might be attacking N4G in conjuction with the PSN/Xbox Live thing.. I'm not 100% sure but I just want to read the damn article so I know what it's about before I comment. But yeah it's a widespread issue I've seen tons of comments mentioning it.. It started for me yesterday around mid afternoon EST time
Been happening on my phone for a few days now. I thought I was going cRaZy!!!
That list is a joke. For one thing, why 9? What not do a top 10? Also it's Insane that they would list Watchdogs over GTAV. Also no Driveclub or Farcry 4? If I did the list it would look like this... The Last of Us Remastered Driveclub GTA V Resogun Tomb Raider Definitive Edition Farcry 4 Dragon Age Inquisition Shadows of Mordor Infamous Second Son/First Light Little Big Planet 3 Final Fantasy 14 online (criminally underrated game) Plus there's a whole host of other games that would be close to that list like Flower, Trine 2, Transistor, Marvel Legos, Outlast, Dying Light, Alien Isolation, etc.
Nice list. I own half the games on it, and I want to get the other half later on.
Your list of games in spot on, except for one, in my opinion. I bought DriveClub recently, and today, the day after Christmas, I can't access the online features, despite psn being back online. What is Evolution Studios doing? I thought this game was pretty much fixed by now? Disappointed. So I can't see how DriveClub, pretty as it is, could be on a top ten list. The online is still apparently not quite right.
All of PSN is down. This isn't a Driveclub issue.
"This list does not agree with my opinions, therefore it is a joke."
It IS Geekman! Only an idiot would list games like Watchdogs, Destiny, and Call of Duty over GTA V, Farcry 4, Driveclub, Tombraider Definitive Edition, Etc. It just makes no sense.
"This list is a joke, therefore it is a joke." Fixed that for you.
i agree with your list especially FF14. I been playing that alot daily and it gives you so much and it's very addictive
I'm dying to get Dragon Age I. for boxing day deal but it's down atm here in Canada...
If PSN is down, why put out this bit?
Here is one more. If you've not yet tried out Crimsonland.... it is a hidden gem. Download it and get your thumb ready for some punishment. lol
I can't, PSN is down.
My girlfriend got me a ps4 for Christmas. Can't sign into my ps4 account. [email protected] you lizard squad.
I cant do crap on my ps4 that involved psn cause my psn has been down and is still down as we speak I got destiny for 28 bucks and cant play it. I got the last of us digital from a friend and guess what cant use the code. Of course i have mostly all my games on disc but this is B.S. there is no way thos world can go all digital. All it takes is some ahole DDOSers to screw it up
Immediately? That's going to be a tall order at the moment.
