Done with more or less all of the games in my backlog that arent having PS5 patch. Has been a great gen..so much so that I found it hard to choose my top 10. Below is my top 10 list, in order:
Bloodborne: First and only From Software game I've played so far. One of the most frustrating but memorable and rewarding experience I ever had in gaming.
GOW: Thats how you do a reboot!!
Astrobot: Each and every level was so unique and creative. Makes great of use of VR tech.
Nier Automata: One of the best stories in a video game.
Yakuza 0: Like many, this hooked me to the Yakuza series.
Witcher 3: First witcher game I played and loved the world, its stories and characters.
RE7: VR took it to the next level.
RDR2: What an amazing, complex open world they have created. Arthur Morgan FTFW!!
TLOU 2: Tells an emotional story, looks insane but gets too dark and depressing at times, hence the lower ranking.
TLG: Unique and emotional like all of his previous works.
Few indies like Inside, Little Nightmares, WRofEF, Valiant Hearts etc - found them way better than many copy-paste open world crapola.
So many memorable moments:
Defeating Father Gascoigne after countless tries over 2 years.
That moment in TLOU2
That moment in GOW
Jump scare in Arkham Knight
Visiting Valentine for the first time.
Finding your way through those underground caves in Hellblade
Yakuza 0: Majima's intro
What remains of edith finch: Lewis's story
Watching E3 2016 in a theatre full of ponies.
And many more...
VR has been a highlight for me this gen. Can easily fill a separate list for VR only moments. But the best one for me was from Moss, the first game I played in VR. After completing a comparatively tricky puzzle, quill raised her hand and I instinctively responded back for a high five, just to realise a second later that she isnt there.
