Ace combat 6 is included with ac7 for preordering It, still isn't b/c even though it releases this month. I have been waiting for a long time to play it again.

lxeasy2000d ago

keep on games to BC love it

Shuckylad2001d ago

I’m still praying for the 360 version of the Dreamcast classic “under defeat” coming to backwards compatible, tho I know it’s never gonna happen.

I thought the open world in LA Noire was a bit of a waste, it was competent but pointless. If there was anything worth doing other than progressing the story I don't remember what it was.

Lynx02072508d ago

Agree, boring driving through the empty city between missions was final game-killer for me.

High speed car chase...try to take short cut through someones back garden....indestructible fence

Goldby2508d ago

Must have built the fence out of the trees from GTA

clevernickname2508d ago

Completely agree. Apparently the open world in LA Noire was originally intended to be filled with characters that you could interact with and minor crimes to be solved but Team Bondi had such difficulty with the core game that the open world features were dropped just to get it finished.

Tross2507d ago

I see. Thankfully the core game is still great IMHO, aside from the occasional animation glitch. I just opted to let my partner drive after a while as traversing the LA of the 1940s as presented in the game got old. The best parts were the main missions anyways IMHO. I believe there's stuff that needs to be done in the city to get the platinum trophy, but I just didn't bother as it was just too tedious. It has been a long time though. First and foremost I still regard LA Noir as an underrated classic that falls just short of greatness, largely due to its open world.

MGS phantom pain's open world damaged the game a lot it wasn't necessary

Soulst0rmer2508d ago

MGSV's open world was not needed. I spent that time just snatching up goats and baddies. Felt empty

-Foxtrot2508d ago

Yeah it screamed Kojima wanting to make a new game but being stuck with MGS

It was a story which felt forced and wasn't needed.

Didn't help when the world didn't react to what you did, you could clear a base out from enemies then an hour later they'll be back at that base. At least let me clear the world out a bit. Then you have slow as shit vehicles and stupid fast travel options. I could go on...the fact it got worldwide praise and almost perfect scores baffle me.

I thought true crime LA was a pretty decent fun romp plagued only by the painful length of time it took to travel anywhere :(

AmUnRa2508d ago

I not agree that Fuel was a bad open world game. I played that game till dead. And also with my friends, whe loved it. I wish they make a Fuel game for PS4. I will buying it day one.

GamersFTW writes: 'Games that give us a glimpse of the end of the world have always held appeal, even if they are bred from impossible scenarios. The need to survive and our drive to do anything to make that happen means that post-apocalyptic worlds will forever be high up on our list of things we want to play.'

I know it's not out yet, but Mad Max probably deserves an honourable mention at least, should be a post-apocalyptic staple if it lives up to expectation.

GamerGabs3252d ago

Enjoyed the range of games talked about here. Nice to see Horizon Zero Dawn on the list, I'm also really excited for the game and can't wait for more information on it.
