So happy that you are enjoying your Ps5, it really is an incredible piece of hardware.English is not my first language so excuse me for any misspells.
After 26 years as a pc gamer I decided to buy a Playstation 5 to see why you all love it so much in this forum. And now I'm one of you:
My thoughts so far:
- There is something really beautiful about a machine that is strictly for gaming, I Found myself playing a lot more and getting less distracted by not opening tabs for Reddit or youtube.
- The controller is great and shooting is amazing. The only two downsides I see are that the battery life is quite short and aiming is way harder, but that is probably because im used to using a mouse.
- Playing the same game on pc and playstation feels different, probably due to the fact that now I can play from the couch and not the desk, so I'm not just playing more, I am actually enjoying games more and feeling more relaxed.
Thankfully I was on time to claim the Playstation Plus collection since I'm starting from 0 and I also suscribed to Playstation Plus Extra. Right now I'm playing Miles Morales because I want to be ready for Spiderman 2.
What Sony game that I missed should I play next? I'm thinking about playing The Last of Us (I sadly know the story at this point) or Horizon Zero Dawn (spoiler free)
As for games, this is my personal list that I think you should try.
Bloodborne is to me maybe the best game ever made, atmosphere, and fantastic combat the only downside i would say is maybe waiting till the next PlayStation show just in case they announce a remaster, remake,
Final Fantasy 7 remake, I never played the original but absolutely fell in love with the remake, great fights, bosses, lots of spells, good environments, Tifa is a Goddess, the story is very cringe but to me, easily one of the best games out there.
Astrobot is the free game you get with the Ps5. Need more games like that, it's a joy to play and shows just how incredible the best controller on the market performs,
God of War series, I even made a review about it, you can find it here.
God of war Ragnarok review I was beyond thrilled when IconEra's very own @Bryank75 offered me a free code of God of war Ragnarok to play. As a general rule, I am not normally one to buy new games on release as one; my backlog is rather immense, stuff you Sony for all those cheap bargain...
Also, my good friend @Gamernyc78 spoke about Days Gone, 100% it's a very enjoyable game and very much worth your time.
