As a newcomer to Shadow of the Colossus, I probably take these improved graphics for granted. But a story is something that doesn't rely on pixel count - and Shadow of the Colossus has one of the best I've experienced in a game.
If you weren't able to play The Last of Us on PS3, then definitely check out the Remastered version on PS4. It's honestly a must-play for any PlayStation owner. If you did play it on PS3 already and want to experience it again, well, have at it. The Remastered version only improves upon what you already loved. And adds to it as well with all of the previously released DLC already included on it.
If you are a baseball fan and own a PS4, then MLB 14: The Show is definitely worth the purchase.
Child of Light isn't the type of game we're used to from Ubisoft, but it's the type of game this industry needs. It's hard not to look at the game and admire its beauty, but underneath the gorgeous visuals is a thought-provoking story that'll draw you in. All of this rests on top of polished gameplay with enticing mechanics.
Tomb Raider was already a gorgeous game, but seeing it on one of these newer consoles is breathtaking.
TT Games' LEGO Marvel Super Heroes presents a nice break from the complex sports titles and intense shooters that overrun the console. That's not to say the game doesn't offer it's own action, but it's much less in your face. Plus, it's LEGO.
Sunset Overdrive has all of the elements of a holiday blockbuster, but it's completely self-aware -- and it totally works in this case. It's a reminder that we don't always have to take games so seriously.
Whether it's through conversation or through action, A House Divided will make you feel.
Episode 3: A Crooked Mile is probably my favorite episode of the three thus far.
What Remains of Edith Finch is heartbreakingly sweet. Its stories, though grim, are enchanting. Even knowing that each story would end with a certain unhappiness, I was happy to have experienced it -- because as What Remains of Edith Finch so brilliantly manages to convey through its nearly two hours of storytelling is that life isn't about the ends; it's about the moments that got us there.
Cities: Skylines is the city-building game we all wanted, but never got -- until now.
Fans of Diablo 2's will undoubtedly be pleased with Diablo 3's version of the fan-favorite Necromancer class. The classic class returns with a horde of undead.
While still having room to grow, PES 2015 is an overall much-improved product. Now when people ask which game -- FIFA or PES -- we'll finally have to stop and think.
It's not easy for a game with the name Shinji Mikami attached to it to live up to the hype, but The Evil Within does a nice job of staying true to its roots.
If anything, The Last Tinker: City of Colors is a nice tribute to the wonderful 3D platformers of yesteryear. It's just a pick-up-and-play kind of game, void of overly complex gameplay and intense narrative. It will remind you of why you started playing games, especially on the PlayStation system.
Valiant Hearts: The Great War isn't about being the hero, though there is some of that. It's not about beating the "bad guys," as you'll experience the war from both sides. Valiant Hearts: The Great War is a beautiful depiction of the horrific effects of war.
If you love coaster creation, you're going to enjoy ScreamRide. If you love destroying things and watching buildings crumble, well, you'll also enjoy ScreamRide; but, you should probably seek help.
South Park: The Stick of Truth perfectly encompasses what the show is all about. My only wish is that more of my favorite characters could've been given the spotlight, but I guess when you've got 17 seasons worth of content, that's easier said than done.
In the end, Episode One: All That Remains does a decent job of setting up the season. . . . The future remains unwritten for Clementine in Season Two, but it's certainly off to a strong start.
Despite the absence of Nathan Drake, this is still very much an Uncharted game, and it hasn't lost a beat.
