I wasn't expecting Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, Until Dawn or SOMA to hit it with the reviews, but damn.....

Simply lots of fantastic games coming to PS4 recently. Can't wait to see what more of these ambitious indie devs are cooking up.

I knew Until Dawn would review well bc all the hands on prior to release were so positive.

I knew SOMA would review well bc i experienced nearly half the game prior to release and it's undeniably impressive.

I wasn't sure critics would grasp Rapture, i feared many reviewers would be too thick and Rapture's pure beauty and essence would escape them. Every game was generally beloved though.

It's exciting to see such creative and expressive games being well received critically and commercially. This type of creativity and diversity are what make PlayStation great.

SOMA is so good.

PS4 is the undisputed king of quality horror gaming this generation. In fact, PlayStation in general has always been home to some great horror games over the years. Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Siren, Fatal Frame, Until Dawn, and others.
