Two huge games are coming to PlayStation 4 between May and June, but which one is most likely NOT to satisfy the super lofty expectations of gamers?
Neither, both will be good.
Do flame bait hit seeking articles like this still get approved?
Hope not....this article needs to fail big time. It's just stupid and flame bait at best. I mean disappoint who? These are two totally different games one of the made by proven devs who imo and many others opinion are the best devs in gaming today while the other is trying something new as well as trying to make its mark in the industry. One is a AAA the other is a indie. They will appeal to differnt crowds (I'm in both crowds...Lucky me!) Will some be dissapointed?..yes, of both games. Simply because it's not their thing...from what I see from these games personally, looks very impressive. UC looks just insane NMS looks limitless. No matter what you like anyone can see that. This article should fail just for being negative without reason. Wait until they are out and make an article that says "Are these games disappointing?" It's more respectable and sounds like something we'd want to read.
I don't like deliberately negative articles. This PS4Extreme writer Ben Dukta has a history of spinning stories about PlayStation so they are always negative, it's almost as if he is a stealth Xbox fan! He is also the guy who gave Assassin's Creed Unity a glowing review and after the public backlash and suspicions of impropriety he lowered his score! I would have thought it better to stand by your convictions - unless there was another reason for the high praise... http://www.psxextreme.com/p... http://m.psxextreme.com/fea... Let me make a positive suggestion for the website. I would have angled a similar article so it would be like "which PS4 exclusive are you looking forward to most?"
It's articles like these that also get approved the quickest, mostly by the other side of the fence, but that goes for both sides as well. Just the nature of n4g. As for UC4 & NMS, both have the potential to dissapoint depending on which side of the above mentioned fence you sit. For me, i cant bloody wait for both, Uncharted is one of my favorite IP's of all time, NMS is what i love about exploration games, just flying around doing my own thing, just like i enjoy doing in Elite with my Rift DK2.
I think n4g should implement a system where you can submit anything. If it's proven false the site responsible and the user who submitted it get banned though. Man, this place'd change in an hour.
Both will dissapoint. U4 won't get higher than 89 meta and No Man Sky is low 80s.
Above Why? Explain please.
This is the funniest part to me: "We could just be optimistic and say that both titles will be Game of the Year contenders in 2016 but optimism doesn't always fly on the Internet. ;)" Optimism definitely doesn't fly when you write an article insinuating that at least 1 of 2 highly anticipated games will somehow disappoint even though the writer in question most likely hasn't put his hands on either title. This site only ever seems to write a single paragraph hypothetical question to incite conversations & clicks which is fine, but couldn't they have taken that dreaded optimistic approach & just asked "Which is more likely to be better received?"
@Mikeslemonade i guess forza 6 was a dissapointment cuz its sitting at 87. titan fall got the horrendous 86 alongside Rise of the Tomb Raider. oh god and to think 343 is still i business after the worst release ever with halo 5 sitting at 84 if you think 80s are dissapointments you need serious help
Neither just these articles trying to drum up hits.
Is this a serious question? Look at ND's track record, they always deliver and their last 3 games were masterpieces. I think NMS will be good but it's definitely more likely to disappoint.
agreed. all signs are showing that uncharted 4 will be one of the best games this year. i have a feeling no mans sky will disappoint though.
Even though I have been looking forward to NMS since the reveal in 2013, I have to agree. I still have minor reservations about whether it'll be great or not. With Uncharted 4, there are no doubts in my mind.
The concept of NMS and the limitless universe it possesses are intriguing. But the game also looks like it lacks content inside of its universe, from what I've seen there's plenty planets to explore but not much there to see when you arrive. Plus I think the game relies a lot upon the ability to explore, I want to know what else you can do? Maybe if this game was a VR game id be more excited, cause that'd be some immersive stuff! UC4 looks like it'll be the best in the series yet, from what I've seen of it, there's no reason to assume it's going to disappoint. Unless you're just not a fan of the first 3.
If your expectations are tempered with doubt, then the chances that it will disappoint are greatly lowered. most of the disappointing games through years tend to be disappointing due to people's unreasonable expectations of them...or misappropriated belief on what they were supposed to be.
NMS is definitely a more niche title. In fact, it might be the direct antithesis of Uncharted. It's meant to be a slow, plodding exploration with limited story or narrative. The mystery and intrigue drive the over arching need to explore. Uncharted is heavily narrated and story driven and about as action filled as you would want. (which probably has broader appeal) Also, I have no doubt that Uncharted will sell more simply because of ti's established history. That being said, there's room for both to be successful on their own terms.
Definitely agree. Even if UC4 is just more of the same, it will still be a hit w/ the fans & the majority of the gaming sphere. NMS has a much tougher track. That said I could see NMS surprising people, because for as long as the game was hyped as the next coming, we've now spent just as much time assuming it'll naturally disappoint. I think people's expectations are going to be low going in & it'll set NMS up to be a successful game w/ a very long tail.
Not Uncharted 4, that's for sure.
No Man's Sky is more likely but I doubt either will.
Well, aren't you just a downer site.
It's sad that most articles these days have hooks that border around negativity and/or incite hate. I want to be optimistic, so I will only give this site a click if they change the header to something like: "Two Games that Show Promise: Uncharted 4 and No Man's Sky!"
Why are you all so amazingly offended. This article is from a ps website so I'm gonna guess they aren't trying to hurt these games. He didn't say both will be bad. He simply asked which one is more likely to fail. Instead of getting mad just answer the question. No man's sky is more likely. They both have a chance to be great.
PSXExtreme is probably one of the most negatively biased PSX focused websites out there. I'm not personally offended, but I do wonder at why such a question would even be asked? Why ask which is more likely to fail? That's just assuming that one of them will fail....which is really rather pessimistic at this point in time. If the article had the premise of "Which is more likely to disappoint, QB or UC4" would it make any sense? both games are anticipated, and either of them could disappoint, but the more likely thing that will happen is that they will both please those who play them. I'd imagine most people looking forward to NMS are keeping up with the game, and know what to expect, hence, disappointment may not be that bad if it exists. Now all we have to do is hope the reviewers don't place unreasonable expectations on the game.
No Man's Sky because of the enormous and unrealistic expectations resting on its shoulders. It has the potential to be extremely successful or end up becoming an utter failure more than any other games in this generation.
its an exploration game at heart. it does that perfectly
As I said before, it's shouldn't be a difficult feat to make a better game than the last three Uncharted games. Crystal Dynamics already did that. So, Naughty Dog is more than capable of making a new and better Uncharted. I doubt U4 will disappoint. -- No Mans Sky.. It's a new IP. I have no expectations. The concept sounds good thus far. However, folks might be disappointed as they've got unrealistic expectations. -- xoxo
Rofl..you try too hard. Again
Keeping expectations in check helps with the whole disappointment thing, ones unique and interesting enough and the other one will be a quality title, can't remember since the psx days that ND ever made a just "ok" game, they have been consistent and improving with every game they've released since then, so if the content and the polish is their it will be all good.
Neither I expect. Naughty Dog are one of the the best studios at present if not the best, and their last four games have been excellent. No Man's Sky looks to be a unique experience and given the amount of support it has had from Sony, it is also likely to be an excellent game. It is a pity that 'Uncharted 4' had to be delayed again and is now releasing in the same month as 'Doom 4' and 'Homefront' and 'Battleborn' rather than in March or April when there were very few major releases. However, I doubt the delay will affect the sales of 'Uncharted'.
I was definitely bummed about the delay myself, the wait is absolutely killing me at this point & the more I see it delayed from firm dates meant to be final, the less I believe it'll hit these new dates. I still feel like there's at least a decent chance that UC4 sees another delay. That said, I don't see those games you mentioned as direct competition for Uncharted. In all honesty there was more direct competition in April than May. In April you had Ratchet & Clank which will bring out fans of classic Sony exclusive franchises & you also had Quantum Break that may have been on other platforms, but they both scratch that narrative driven action/adventure tps itch that is so rarely scratched this gen. In May, Homefront doesn't stand much of a chance to even be a critical success, much less a commercial one. Never been a big franchise & most gamers that played the beta didn't have many nice things to say about it. Battleborn is one that has been seeing some negativity as well & Gearbox will have their work cut out for them on that one, beyond the fact that it has an mp focus that doesn't really cross over to the sp fans that enjoy Uncharted. Doom is the only contender out of those 3 but they offer such vastly different experiences that I can't see them cannibalizing each other. I'm definitely gonna check out Doom but UC4 is my day one, if I could only pick up a single game this year, UC4 would most definitely be it.
Any game has the potential to disappoint, everybody knows this. I cant help but think the "journalists" who write these flame bait articles have hidden agendas...or just don't have anything news worthy to say. No click from me.
Who approves articles like this?!
Only crap articles like this are the disappointment.
What's more likely to get clicks : Flame bait about one PS4 game, or flame bait about two PS4 games?
What kind of negative clickbait title is this?
