A prodigal Sony gamer returns to find that not all beloved games are what they’re cracked up to be.
Uncharted and God Of War ?!?! do even playstation ?!
I actually feel the same about Uncharted and GoW. They're very linear and non-replayable games, so it's understandable they're not for everyone. And of course since this is N4G, people will automatically assume that not liking a game that happens to be on PS4 means I am secretly making a personal attack on Sony itself while tattooing Bill Gates' face on my forehead.
What playstation games do you like then?
I've replayed those games a lot, especially Uncharted Multiplayer. With God of War, at least GoW3 is one of those games I have to play at least once a year because it is so epic and memorable I understand if some people don't like those or none at all, but they are fun games. The only PS franchises I can't get into are Quantic Dream's. Other than those, I love: Infamous Gran Turismo Little Big Planet God of War Uncharted TLOU Sly Cooper Jak and Daxter Ratcher and Clank Killzone Resistance... I could still go on because there's so much variety and awesome franchises in the Playstation portfolio, but that will make a big TL;DL comment. With such big porfolio, it is obvious PlayStation will have a divided fanbase that would choose one franchise ovmer another. it's called Diversity. I for one love the all except for a couple of them, but overall all franchises are pretty good imo.
@KionicWarlord222 Bloodborne I almost didn't answer you because I find it borderline insane that someone would go all suspicious on me and my "allegiances" because I said I didn't like some game. Some people do not judge games based solely on whether they're a Sony or MS franchise, you know? Almost makes me want to lie and say I hate all PS4 games just to see fanboys get mad
[email protected] Sony fanboys are getting worse and worse on this site. I used to think Nintendo diehards were pretty bad but now i'm not seeing a difference fanboy's in general are just annoying and bias all together to anyone's opinion. You don't like what they like all the sudden you're not a gamer you're not a fan you're stealth trolling etc. plus i'm not into GOW either i'm not too big on uncharted either but i'm still getting uncharted 4. I still enjoy the game it's just not a big deal to me as it may be for others. it's ridiculous how people just can't respect that people have different taste.
I partially agree with the article. I never liked Diseagea Dragon Quest Persona Infamous Twisted Metal Loved God of War Socom Syphon filter Resistance Uncharted Certain games are not for everyone but having the option of different games helps filter out what you dont like.
I agree with those. Uncharted is a good game for the tech, but most third-party games are more entertaining and fun overall. The story isn't bad, but it's not great either. God of War, played the first three, and see no reason to play any other until they decide to move away from the "they made me kill my wife and kids! Everything must die! *stab stab stab*"
Killing the Greek gods and the beasts was fun, and it wasn't just for no reason. There's a story there you probably didn't miss. Every game involves some kind of killing. It's a video game. As for Uncharted, well, not many third party games are overall more fun. That depends because anyone can say COD is more fun. Some comparisons may come as pretty unfair, but I;m glad Uncharted exist and the way ND handles the series makes it a league of its own
@XiKurapikaKurta Here we have people saying whether they liked a game or not. This is always fine. What isn't fine, however, is trying to tell someone they were WRONG about not liking a game, and that you know better than them about what they like.
***There's a story there you probably didn't miss. Every game involves some kind of killing. It's a video game. *** The story was vengeance. Plain and simple. That's all it was. Kratos just got angry at everyone for anything and killed things. He is a one-dimensional character who just kills and kills and kills. Saying there's killing in video games doesn't change that most other notable characters in other games have way more character development and evolve beyond just killing for killing. ***not many third party games are overall more fun. *** Yeah, they are. Uncharted has limited weapon use, almost just the 'base' concepts. It has no form of character growth/development or form of customization that many other games have that allow you to control how you play the game and allow you to focus on the playstyle you like. It has great acting, one-time good story, great one-liners, and great tech, but as far as fun? Far Cry 4, Wolfenstein, Tomb Raider, and more have been a lot more enjoyable and offered more way to play, IMHO. Their stories may not be the same as Uncharted, but their gameplay is definitely more fun and diverse.
4600 trophies, psn lv 23, a mad love for sony, who loves uncharted 1&2, was deeply disappointed with uncharted 3's story. But other then that I find it hard for anyone to not like uncharted, it has memorable characters, good gameplay, fantastic cinematics/set pieces.
Those are the namesake of Playsation, but I can see where he's coming from. He liked Resident Evil and Final Fantasy, but I wonder what he plays now..
The first two Disgaea games were awesome and funny as hell. After that though I did lose interest in the series. I did want to go back to the Laharl sequel but never got a chance to.
Hmm, yea. I would have to agree. Love my ps4 (liked my PS3), just never cared for jrpgs, God of war button mashers, uncharted looks cool but every time play a demo, I get bored before it's over. Never really enjoyed gran turismo, didn't like the lack of a sense of speed. Killzone and resistance were nothing special. LOVED last of us and the mlb the show games. #sorryNotSorry
Well at least you loved the best.. The Last of Us :3
He pretty much doesn't like anything on the Playstation right now except for 2 or 3 games.
Im kinda the same to be honest. The only games I have bought for my PS4 this year are bloodborne, the order and GOW remaster as a digital download. I wish I didnt buy the order..... Skipping the UC remaster. Just feels like I been there done that..and as a TPS game, I have played better elsewhere ( not going to say what...)But I enjoy the story in the UC games. But, mechanically there are better third person shooters. Still.. Im Looking forward to Horizon, shadow of the beast and some others in 2016. Games wise the PS4 didnt do much for me this year, personally.
I disagree. I'm really happy with my ps4 to be honest.
Fancy that, Flex doesn't like much on PS4. Why didn't you feel "been there, done that" about Gears? As to the article, who the hell cares? Not everybody likes every franchise, large or small, on any console. Even the fanboys who SAY they do are only keeping up appearances. I'm not into God of War. So? Not that into Resistance. And? Never played more than a bit of R&C, J&D, or even Crash. Alright? Sure, it's someone's opinion, but it's really an irrelevant point to make.
"Why didn't you feel "been there, done that" about Gears? " gears is kind of the reason I been there done that.lol...anything else? FYI i dont even own the gears remaster. So what point are you REALLY trying to make? trying to paint me as the bad guy. I own both so you cant tell me, shit. "Fancy that, Flex doesn't like much on PS4." If they make more games Im interested in, the for sure my opinion will change. As it stands though... But hey...why should I have an opinion on PS4 right? I only happen to own one with a PS4 and few exclusives....Just like any of you...Thats more than I can say for you spotie...you turn up in xbox threads talking smack about the games and you dont even own one...at least when I give my opinion it comes from a place of experience and my own money spent. You comment on stuff you dont own or play and try to paint your self as anything but a troll...how does THAT work? http://s1370.photobucket.co... And LOL at the disagrees..I could say the sky is blue and you would all STILL spam that button....
I seriously believe this person is pretentious. But that's just my honest opinion from reading the article. To each their own.
Interesting that somebody would write an entire article about 5 PS Games they don't like... I mean, why announce it to the World? Who really cares what an individuals tastes are? Is this article really necessary? Probably Not /
Im sure he/the site wanted to have a little clickbait out there but it is refreshing to see oppinion pieces like this because there are indeed people who dont like some of the many PS franchises out there. Especially now that some of these series have been running considerably longer than older gen franchises. Has a positive psychological effect on those people who for example dont like Uncharted which has been the front running franchise for PS3 and now partially for the PS4 for a long while. Since speaking about your dislike towards those games is strictly forbidden by internet fanboy law, hearing others less positive oppinions about these games makes you feel less like an outcast. At least thats how I think about these articles unless they are pure hate/bait.
God of War doesn't appeal to me like it does to many gamers. Apart from Uncharted and Dark Cloud,I don't find great enjoyment in Sony franchises
I must admit I hate Uncharted a whole lot. Love the atmosphere. Love the production values. Hate how you HAVE to love the poorly designed rest of it or else you are an enemy of gaming culture.
So ya hate Uncharted, but you love des nuts. LOL.
I can agree with Twisted Metal and God of War. Twisted Metal was great fun back in the 90s, but it didn't really pull me in after 2. Never cared for the PS2 entries and beyond. Then, when I bought 2 for PS3, I found myself struggling to get into it. The game hasn't aged well at all for me. For God of War, the gameplay of the original was good, I felt that II really improved the formula, and by the time III came around, I got tired of it. I felt like I was in autopilot playing through it because I really just didn't enjoy it very much. Depending on what Barlog does for the next game, I might be back on board because I was a huge fan of II--still am. Put metaphorically, Jaffe created a work of art, Barlog was able to to do great work with an already beautiful canvas, and Asmussen signed his name at the bottom of their piece. It felt much smaller than I and II with no real identity of its own. The handheld games were good and I skipped Ascension, but again, the formula has gotten pretty tiresome for me. Now about Uncharted, Disgaea, and Metal Gear Solid... Uncharted is formulaic, but there's a charm to the story, characters, and gameplay that's refreshing every time. Disgaea's only real weakness in my opinion is that it doesn't push hardware. I love the art style, but they could do more with it. Go the Aksys route with hand drawn sprites or something (if they insist on using sprites). Indies often employ simple visuals as well so there's that. Doesn't detract from the fun, but being full priced games, it's not unreasonable to expect certain things from the game. Metal Gear Solid V is a good entry point if you don't care about the story of the series (and it doesn't sound like the author does), but there's so much to experience. My only gripe with the series is noticing all of Kojima's backtracking and story altering devices. Other than that, I've always loved how the games reinvented the mechanics time after time after time. Favorite franchise, bar none.
This guy preemptively hates on Metal Gear, and never played since the eighties, but part of his excuse was not having a PS2. Considering he seemed to enjoy his original Xbox, it's surprising he didn't know MGS2 and MGS3 were on it. The rest is his opinion, and damned if I don't quite understand his reasoning sometimes, but I can respect it. Still seems a tad click-baitish.
I...don't think Metal Gear Solid 3 was ever on the original Xbox. Substance, yes. Snake Eater/Subsistence, I don't think so. HD Collection on Xbox 360, yes.
You're right, I looked it up. Could have sworn it, too.
