    The best part about this release is the booklet they give with the physical version.

    Yes this might happen during the early life cycle of a console. Collectors/hoarders come into the picture here

    Do you have a source for that information about botw switch? The only scenario it can happen is when people hoard games and don't own the requisite console to play it on. Another factor for improved good of war sales on the PS4 might be the digital downloads which were absent on the ps2. People played renting the game or buying second hand. That might be a possibility

    God of war as a series in whole is one of the highlights of this generation.

    Action titles generally appeal to masses in general universally. I think piracy does have a role to play in this anomaly. Specially in the south east Asian region.

    Metacritic rating stands at 94 percent so I don't think people took it as just another hack n slash. It pushed ps2 to its limits.

    Have they mentioned a region or are these sales figures from world over. Numerically for the god of war at least the numbers don't add up really. Ps2 is supposedly sonys most sold console of all times( more than the PS4 even) and god of war is one of the premier titles on the system. So automatically that should mean more sales compared to other systems. Maybe piracy is a factor here which was hugely prevalent during the ps2 era and somewhat prevalent in the PS3 era. Piracy on the PS4 is almost next to nothing.

    Santa Monica took risk(s) and it paid heavy dividends. CD Projekt is taking a huge risk (from a tested 3ps perspective to an FPS) and hopefully it would work as well. I guess it all boils down what your ultimate vision is. I am almost sure, Kojima would never create an online only pvp-esque experience.

    Not the norm I believe. Every great dev of this gen (example-Naughty dog) must have been an indie dev at some point. https://kotaku.com/remembering-naughty-dogs-first-game-1775603758 I reckon money should be one, but not the only, motivation for making games. That is when you take risks and create art in the process.

    You guys need to play some Japanese imports that are hidden gems (on the ps4) . I mean some of these games do not even release in the western markets. Some Japan only games are extremely good, and rare. Plus we have indie games. I am getting a feeling that many of the present indie devs will become the greats of next gen. Switch can really help these devs prosper. I many of these (indie) games feel as if they have been optimised for the switch.

    I concur, 100%. I love semi open world that give you a taste of the best of both worlds...

    You forgot to append Ni No Kuni 2 in the list Jokes apart, I have absolutely nothing against this generation. If you feel that I am criticizing ps4 for the lack of quality games, I certainly am not. I mean all the playstation exclusives have mostly been masterpieces, across generations. This generation has seen (and will see- TLOU2, Ghosts of Tsushima, CYBERPUNK, Death Stranding etc) some of the best gameplay experience of the recent past (GOW, Spiderman, Sekiro, doom, matterfall, etc). My gripe is with some of the so called AAA studios with money that try to disrupt the industry somehow and others follow suit in few years. Secondly, almost all the adventure games that have come out in the recent past (story driven, third person) have been good. However, I miss *read* solid first person gameplay experiences that are mostly linear and/or with a good storyline* This was my original post about anyways. There are not many in the market these days. Metro Exodus was exceptional and so will be Doom Eternal. Not so sure about other titles.

    I love the Wolfenstein series reboot. But it does not feel like how id software originally meant it to be. Wolfenstein was always about killing Nazis and the occult at 60fps. I absolutely loved Rtcw and the next title castle Wolfenstein by id. Now they are launching a new Wolfenstein every other year. I hope they don't turn it into assassin's of Wolfenstein/call of Wolfenstein. I believe this what made cod into an online only title. I strongly believe game story plus gameplay mechanics make a game more than just pieces of entertainment. These elements turn games into art forms. I don't mind waiting years for it. You don't have to shove a new title every year just by implementing few multiplayer/open world hacks. Farcry fell into this trap unfortunately. Though i am not a fan of Nintendos business practices, I love the way they build their titles. Absolute masterpieces. I mean look at ocarina of Time . It still gives me goosebumps. Though I enjoy multiplayer elements, gaming for me is always about the story and the immersive experiences which stay with you long after the credits roll and I earnestly hope the next generation doesn't just turn into seamless unimaginative open spaces.. and loot boxes.

    Precisely my point. Battlefield and cod used to be epic story driven titles. Heavy focus on online play killed the single player aspects of the game. I mean I absofkinlutely loved Black ops. Few years down the line the latest Black ops doesn't even have a story mode. I hope this doesn't become an industry norm.
