GameSpew: We love narrative-driven adventure games – or walking simulator as some of them are more commonly known. Here are 10 of the best on PS4.
i'm not going to click through 10 pages so i don't know the list. my absolute favorite game in this genre is journey - sure, it came out on ps3 but i redloaded it on ps4 so i'm counting it. everyone who likes these types of games should experience journey. however, i loved "gone home" and "everybody has gone to the rapture" too. the mystery in GH kept me interested while "rapture" was just a peaceful experience. edit; haven't played firewatch yet, but i'm going to make time for it soon.
Detroit was really good also
i'll have to check it out.
Detroit is not really a Walking Sim
@uth11 I would call it a hybrid between a Telltale game and and something else.
Journey rocked! Dear Esther was just okay to me with a ton of reading. I recommend Firewatch. That was a cool story and interesting take on your character and the overall job working in a park.
i'm going to be playing firewatch soon!
Firewatch is incredible! One of my favorite gaming experiences.
Journey wasn't on the list.
makes sense - it technically was a ps3 game and just brought over to ps4 - i still think journey is so good it's worth mentioning. thanks for the info.
I am not much of a fan of this genre.. because it usually has the barest minimum gameplay.. But I did find "Everybody's Gone to the Rapture" interesting because of the environments
i got that one because i wasn't playing anything at the time - and i really enjoyed it.
I really enjoyed Firewatch, What Remains of Edith Finch, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, Layers of Fear and Gone Home. Dear Ester was pretty good and I dug Journey and Abzu. These types of games are great changes of pace imo.
i'm going to play firewatch soon - i've heard nothing but good things from people (like you) who have played it.
Yeah it's really a special gen! Really enjoyed it.
I agree. Sometimes its good to dial it down a notch or two from different gaming genres.
Absolutely and they remind me of Myst back in the day. Like you said it's a nice change of pace and really refreshing actually!
