Three classic adventures with the GOAT and one truly bizarre experience with a goat.
I regretted buying goat sim.. It's just boring and ridiculous pointless... The Nathan drake collection is great! To bad I have it.
I remember playing Uncharted 2 for the first time and just being absolutely blown away... it's crazy to think someone may have a similar experience in 2020, except even improved and for free... truly an amazing month for the collection alone.
Well I think everyone that has a ps4 has it already.
Be one with the goat 🐐
Seriously don't people have a sense of humor anymore ?
@kiwi No, they dont. I have spoken.
Time to play through the Uncharted games again except golden abyss as I no longer have a vita 😣
Extremely meh month. It's really too bad that collection doesn't include the MP portion. It's the only thing I liked about Uncharted.
Cheer up brother. . .it's a new year. . . . . ,then I saw goat simulator. . .lol
Goat Simulator! Definitely the jewel of the bunch. /S Seriously, I think that game has been offered free more times than any other game on each service.
The MP portion is the only thing you like about Uncharted? Right......
Proof that the Uncharted games have great gameplay and aren't just interactive movies as some claim.
Kinda strange you say that when uncharted was the series those claims derived from. The gameplay is great, I think the interactive movie narrative was just some way to take a dig at the game
I agree it was a letdown that mp wasn't included in this. The games are good to great though. If you like Indiana Jones chances are you'll like uncharted
This is gonna be a great year.
Damn straight, mine already started with a 3some
You and both hands :)
Why the hell not? You can't win them all.
Uncharted collection is great for those who have yet to play uncharted but for the other 90% of Sony gamers this month is dog dookie
I'm sitting here like, wtf is this sh!t? The last six months they've been offering games I already have or just seem like they suck. I shouldn't take anything away from goat simulator, but, I'm mean, come on...
You could go out and buy a game of your choosing rather than rely solely on PS+ offerings?
By pure elimination the more games you buy the more chance your going to encounter them on plus, you don't need to be a genius to do the math. Want to make sure the plus games are ones you have never played........then don't buy any games. Also, to say 'they seem like they suck' implies you don't know what the games are like you are dismissing, which is even more odd as they are given away for free, why the hell would you not play them, then you could tell if they really do suck. I imagine there are many who moan about the games given away yet have never downloaded them. The modern world.........
I'll take your wise words and reflect on the many reasons I should be greatful for goat simulator...
The game sold 5 million, there are 100+ million PS4s. Just because the core audience plays everything, doesn't mean 90% have.
Add 3 million potential used, borrowed, two sharing one account. So yeah still more than 90 million
So you're saying the core audience buys exclusives?
Why are you so defensive?
I played all three games that doesn't mean I have them anymore so I will gladly add them to my collection. Plus I'm genuinely interested to see how they run on a PS4 pro. I wasn't interested in purchasing UC collection again but I'm cool with getting it for free.
Just FYI, not even close to 25% of PS4 owners have played the games.
Yes!!!!! So effectively 4 games and yes Uncharted is the GOAT.
Thanks. Been wanting to play that Tom Brady Simulator game for a while now.
Sweet. All the times I've Almost jumped on the collection, now I don't have to.
Same, glad I held on even though I bought them all on ps3.
Platinumed all four of these on PS3, but I don’t mind having them on PS4 for posterity. Wasn’t gonna re-buy them but this solves that!
Wow what a deal
That's not bad. I never finished the first Uncharted so I'll definitely run through that again. I'll pass on Goat Simulator though, I don't play meme games.
Two very cheap games.
The collection is pretty great though. @Krib It's still worth playing though and since it's free with plus I don't see why people shouldn't play it.
Meh,the first Uncharted aged poorly. I’d suggest skipping that one and going straight to part 2
Uncharted 1 is arguably still my fave. I don’t suggest skipping it. Aged poorly? I thought you guys were all about replaying old games?
Nah, no way anyone should skip Uncharted. It is a classic and plays great today as it always has.
@Razzer If it was something like The Order 1886 or Crackdown 2/3 I would understand. But the game isn't anywhere near as bad as those three. It's still a nice game to play. Certainly not the best Uncharted but certainly one worth playing.
I agree with P_Bomb Uncharted 1 is the one I beat the most times. Have a soft spot for that one. Great atmosphere and characters. Eddie Raja!
"Certainly not the best Uncharted but certainly one worth playing." No doubt. Anytime I play the Tomb Raider reboot, I think of how it wouldn't even exist without Uncharted.
@Razzer Exactly what I thought when I played the game. The reebooted Tomb Raider franchise borrowed alot from Uncharted. But it never ended up as good as the Uncharted franchise in my opinion. The metacritic supports that.
I loved the Uncharted games. Some of my all time Favorites. I played them all on ps3 then again on PS4. I just mean that the “free” games used to be a valuable perk of the subscription but not really anymore.
@Bronx Well if it makes you feel better plenty of people haven't played the original three. I'm pretty sure some people with plus will download the collection whether you like it or not.
@Krib **"Meh,the first Uncharted aged poorly. I’d suggest skipping that one and going straight to part 2"** This 100%, The first game has not aged well at all, the others are ok.
Opinions, I guess. Some are acting like Uncharted started as a 2D side-scroller or something. The game play and mechanics, story, level design, and everything that made Uncharted great didn't go through some massive overhaul from the first game to the second. The second built on the first and made a truly magnificent game. Ultimately, the first Uncharted is still fun to play. This hasn't "aged well" bit is a shallow take. That's probably why no one has backed up that opinions with actual reasons for the comment.
@Razzer The only real issue I had with the 1st one when I played it on my PS3 was the screen tearing. Other than that the game was fun to play and it wasn't bad at all in my opinion. People who have access to the collection should try it out in my opinion. If they don't like it they can always skip to the next gen. Telling people to skip it in the first place isn't the right thing to do because you don't know if they will like it or not. Unless the game is an absolute crap fest like Aliens Colonial Marines I don't see why people shouldnt even bother trying it out since it's free.
I played it, found it really boring, took me a year to finally force my way through it, turned me off of wanting to play part 2, probably woulda liked the series more if i had started on 2. Hence why i say to skip it
@MasterCornholio Agreed. The game was extremely well received. There are also a view dissenting opinions (sometimes, predictably so) but if I didn't like a game that was widely praised by others then the appropriate advice would be "I didn't like it but you might since others did". Saying "skip it cuz I didn't like it" is just shallow.
@Razzer Uncharted 1 was universally praised in 2007, it’s now 2020, and the game hasn’t aged great in that 13 years time. Nothing shallow about it. It bored me to the point i didn’t continue with the series. Hence why i suggest to skip it. I even bought the 4th game before i started playing the collection. since i hadn’t played one of the Uncharted games at that point and after reading what everyone said, i thought i’d totally dig it, but after playing the new tomb raider games, and how they’d improved on the formula i didnt find UC enjoyable
@Kribwalker "It bored me to the point i didn’t continue with the series." Maybe Uncharted just isn't for you then. Alot of people prefer the franchise over Tomb Raider. Hence the reason why it generally had a higher metacritic than the Tomb Raider games did. I played both but I prefer the Uncharted franchise over Tomb Raider. But that's just my opinion.
I'm not going to deny your opinion, Kribwalker, but that take of yours is pretty bad. 1. You bought the 4th game and the collection (in that order if I understand correctly) 2. You played part of OG UC (or all of it?) and then never continued the series. 3. You then played Tomb Raider, all games released years after UC2 and were based on that game as far as presentation, not the first game. Not OG UC, UC2. 4. Now you want to compare Tomb Raider games to a 2007 game that wasn't even the metric for Tomb Raider games and be happy that you haven't tried the game (UC2) which heavily influenced Tomb Raider 2013 presentation (supposedly)? Look, I prefer Tomb Raider games over Uncharted as well. But, I still played all the Uncharted games and enjoyed them for what they were. I even like the first Uncharted the most because of its campy style, but the other games did greatly improve gameplay and overall technical aspects. They're worth playing if you spent money on them. Just as worth playing as the Tomb Raider games, IMHO. Don't let a game that isn't even the game that truly set the tone for the franchise (that's UC2) as well as is used as a metric for the changes in Tomb Raider (again, that's UC2) stop you from enjoying the later games. If we did that, so many games would just die out immediately. Let alone you will miss out on same games that are good. Maybe not as good as Tomb Raider for you, but they're still good games.
Well, someone can repeat "hasn't aged well" over and over if they want, but if there is no context or explanation behind it then yeah.....it is just shallow. I appreciate the things the Tomb Raider took from UC's formula and evolved from just as much as anyone else. But that isn't enough to say it somehow makes UC not worth anyone else's time, especially when it is included in a subscription folks have already paid for. Potential fans of Uncharted would be cheating themselves to follow your unwise advice. So much context in the later games would be lost by skipping the first. Again, we are not talking about a game that went through an incredible transformation from UC to UC2 so not sure why you suggesting a 2007 game is so far behind a 2009 game.
@Christopher I bought part 4 when it was on sale for $20, the collection came with my PS4 and i hadn’t started playing it yet at that point. Figured based off the universal praise id seen on the series as a whole that i would love it, playing the first one in late 2016/2017 turned me off the older games, especially when i had just finished playing Rise of the Tomb Raider, which was a far superior experience, right fully so as it came out 9 years later. After i had finished playing the first i really didn’t even want to play part 2, i started it but that was it. I’m sure when it was released it was great, but age and the evolution of the Tomb Raider series made the old uncharted games not feel like they were fun. At least the first one and the start of part 2 in my eyes. Maybe it’s just Naughty Dogs style of gameplay i don’t like, as the last of us was another i didn’t like when playing the remaster.
@Kribwalker "Maybe it’s just Naughty Dogs style of gameplay i don’t like, as the last of us was another i didn’t like when playing the remaster." Or maybe you just don't like the type of games that PlayStation produces in general. I understand that most of Sonys game has a certain style to them that some people don't like. Maybe it's just better for you not to buy them if you don't like them very much. I'm pretty sure you won't like The Last of Us 2, Ghost of Tsushima or Dreams since it's obvious from your comment history that you don't like those types of games very much. I even doubt if your looking forward to the next God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn. Just a suggestion from a multiplatform gamer. If you can't find many games that you like on a platform it's best just to skip said platform all together.
@cornhole HZD i didn’t like that much, but the last god of war i enjoyed, even said id have given it high 80’s if i was to review it. Shadow of the Colossus was one of my top 3 games of 2018, i thoroughly enjoyed that one, Until Dawn is one of my favourite games of the generation, maybe my dislike of Naughty Dog games stems from people overhyping them, calling them “Naughty Gods” etc, and then i go into them expecting the greatest game ever, and because of the overhype they fall short of my expectations.. it’s not to say they’re terrible, they just don’t live up to expectations and the bar that others have set to me
@Kribwalker That's the way I feel about Gears of War. I aged poorly and the gameplay is so stale "it’s not to say they’re terrible, they just don’t live up to expectations and the bar that others have set to me" But Xbox games lives up to your expectations 😁😂😂
@Kribwalker "it’s not to say they’re terrible, they just don’t live up to expectations and the bar that others have set to me" Well for me at least Naughty Dog constantly raises the bar in the video game industry. Same goes for Sony Santa Monica. With the high standards that they set in the industry it becomes difficult for me to play lower quality games. But that's just my opinion.
I'll take it.
Beyond disappointing month. What a horrible start.
And yet it is still better than the competition... Shame.
Waiting for Horizon Zero Dawn to be a free PS Plus game...
Will gladly replay U2. Cool month.
