Gears 5? 🤨 I agree with the rest though. I’m hyped for all 4.
Maybe they meant as in "for it's own series" ? I would not know, never played a Gears game (but then again - if you played any cover-based-heavy shooter you've played Gears).
But the other 4 games are completely unique and he’s right lol. What’s different, you play as a woman?
I enjoyed 1 & 2 but never finished 3 and didn't get an Xbox this gen so I'm not too hyped for 5. The others I'm super pumped for though! Especially Dreams. The Beta was cool and it's really going to be a game changer!
Dreams is easily my most hyped for game in 2019, that and the new Pokemon, well maybe, hopefully it's not like Sun and Moon or the let's god series, maybe we'll see in the direct today
I'm biased against Gears since I thought that series has always sucked but my understanding is that the series lost its luster after 3.
It did, but the multiplayer in 4 is quality. Still play it from time to time. The campaign sucked but i have confidence in the Coalition to make Gears 5 something great.
I feel like Control maybe should be on that list over Gears 5.
More than gears5 for sure.
Exactly. Control is a new IP and it looks like it has some cool new elements too so I don't get why Gears 5 is considered more 'unique' when Remedy is actually trying to introduce a new IP with interesting mechanics.
It's twinfinite so I'll save you six separate screen clicks and full screen ads: Ghosts of tushima Gears 5 Cyberpunk 2077 Death stranding Dreams
God I hate twinfinite! Just aclicking our lives away lol.
Not all heroes wear capes
Not all heroes wear capes, Thanks
3/5 PS4 exclusives and all 3 new IPs at that. Keep up the awesome work Sony.
By "awesome work" I think you mean "paying devs to make games exclusive to their platform against the wishes of gamers". Arbitrary exclusives are bad for the consumer; sony shouldn't be applauded for locking great games behind a paywall. I had to buy a ps4 just to play bloodborne when it would've run and look way better on my pc.
Guess you missed the NES, SNES, Genesis, PSX, N64, Saturn, Dreamcast, PS2, Xbox, GameCube, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii etc! I imagine when you go to Burger King and demand a Big Mac, it's works out well for you!
I agree. Definitely a great generation to be a PlayStation owner.
1: of course other consoles had exclusives too, and I'm not giving them a free pass either. 2: that's a really bad analogy. Mcdonalds produces the bigmac, so it makes sense that they don't want other trashy restaurants to make a bigmac too. Meanwhile, most ps exclusives aren't made by sony, but are just a product of a shady anti-consumer deal that they make with the devs in order to make it exclusive to their platform. Same goes for microsoft and other greedy corporations.
" Mcdonalds produces the bigmac, so it makes sense that they don't want other trashy restaurants to make a bigmac too" You mentioned Bloodborne specifically though and its a Sony studio game so why would it not be exclusive to PlayStation?! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/... So your reasoning seems off
Good so you admit you are aware of the other console exclusives throughout the past three decades. They too had homegrown exclusives as well as those "behind paywalls" as you called them, so I assume you are either being obtuse or just hating because it's PlayStation. Anyway the majority of Sony's exclusives are funded by them and developed by the teams they've nurtured throughout the years. As for any second or third party titles they get them because of their market position. It's really simple business. M$ in the early 360 days benefited from a similar situation. Bloodborne is a great game but since I love and enjoy cool and amazing shit there are so many more great games so it's not like primarily owning a PS4 is a detriment.As for looking better on PC, I haven't seen a game on PC or the X look better than Uncharted 4, HZD, GOW because power only goes so far. You have to have that talent and ability to pull it off! It's always been like this with PlayStation and for me they took Nintendo's place in the exclusive department.
Sony is producing Death stranding and produced Bloodborne. Death Stranding is even using a proprietary sony engine.
Such an ignorant comment, Ghost OF Tsushima and Dreams are Sony WWS made games, and Death Stranding is getting backing and support from Sony Visual Arts and Service Group, as well as Engine support from Guerilla Games and using their office space in the Netherlands as a secondary Satelite studio for Kojima Productions, Mark Cerny is also the Technical Producer on Death Stranding and is the Lead Architect for PS5, that's way beyond paying Sony Developers, keyword here Sony developers to make their high quality Goty winning exclusives. You also mentioned Sony doesn't make most of their exclusives, hmm well let's see. Jak and Daxter Naughty Dog Uncharted Naughty Dog The Last Of US Naughty Dog Gran Turismo Polyphony Digital Omega Boost Polyphony Digital Sly Cooper SuckerPunch Infamous SuckerPunch Ghost Of Tsushima Suckerpunch Soccom Zipper Interactive Mag Zipper Interactive Unit 13 Zipper Interactive Syphon Filter Bend Studio Days Gone Bend Studio Killzone Guerilla Games Horizon Zero Dawn Guerilla Games Twisted Metal Sony Santa Monica/989 Studios) God Of War Sony Santa Monica Kinetica Sony Santa Monica Starhawk Sony Santa Monica/ LightBox Interactive War Hawk Sony Santa Monica Little Big Planet Media Molecule Tearaway Media Molecule Entwined Pixel Opus Concrete Genie Pixel Opus Dreams Media Molecule Demons Souls Japan Studio/ From Software Bloodborne Japan Studio/ From Software Ape Escape Japan Studio Astro Bot Rescue Mission Japan Studio Legend Of Dragoon Japan Studio Gravity Rush Japan Studio Puppeteer Japan Studio The Last Guardian Japan Studio ICO Japan Studio Shadow Of The Colossus Japan Studio Hot Shots Golf Japan Studio Loco Roco Japan Studio Knack Japan Studio Parappa The Rapper Japan Studio Medievil Cambridge Studio The Getaway London Studio Singstar London Studio Buzz London Studio Blood and Truth London Studio MLB The Show San Diego Studio NBA The Inside San Diego Studio Jet Li Rise To Honor San Mateo Studio Naughty Dog = Sony, Bend Studio = Sony, Sony Japan Studio = Sony, you get the message they clearly have made a lot of their own exclusives with their own development teams.
@Hardiman Then again McDonald's doesn't require you to buy a $400 device from them before you can eat a Big Mac either. You simply spend a few dollars and get the burger. So I don't think your analogy fits. I wouldn't like it if I had to buy different brands of Blu-ray players just to be able to watch certain movies. And I don't like it in gaming either. It sucks having to buy a fairly expensive device just to play a small number of games that would run just fine on the hardware you already own if it weren't for the forced exclusivity.
Dreams and Ghost of Tsushima are literally made by Sony's First Party devs?
@ ButtAnihilator "that's a really bad analogy. Mcdonalds produces the bigmac" Are you serious? Most Sony exclusives are in fact produced by Sony. the only ones that aren't are the exclusive niche Japanese games, and Sony doesn't do anything to keep them exclusive. Japanese companies just don't want to make their games for a platform that doesn't sell in their homeland. Bloodborne is produced by Sony... "sony shouldn't be applauded for locking great games behind a paywall" WTF are you actually talking about?! the paywall of buying the system? couldn't the same be said for literally any platform ever made? I'm trying my hardest not to insult you but you're making it very hard lol.
@Hardiman you know what, fair enough, maybe sony does most of their exclusives, although I find that highly unlikely and I have yet to fact check your list, but I'm gonna give you this one. But still, exclusives are annoying AF. And like @starchild said, we wouldn't accept exclusive movies on blueray players, but for no reason at all consumers are ok with having to buy half a dozen different consoles to be able to play exclusives, and it's really expensive and annoying to do so. Arbitrarily exclusive games are undoubtedly bad for the consumer.
@ButtAnihilator There are tons of exclusive movies, Netflix originals, and hulu, prime video, HBO now etc. all have their exclusive movie equivalents.
@isarai yes, and it's really annoying that that's the case. Your point?
Control, by remedy entertaiment looks like it's gonna be pretty unique. It should have made the list.
Whenever I see the game, I think to myself, "This is cool, but I would prefer if it was an 'official' SCP game instead of a game that was obviously inspired by SCP."
Ugh Twinfinite, more multi pages.
