Why do you have to wait so long? Why not get one now?
It is a financial thing. I am a university student.
I have to pay bills and all of that jazz.
So the reason why I have to wait until the end of the year is because:
A. I get a Playstation 4 as some sort of gift.
B. I receive money over this period and buy the Playstation 4 as some sort of gift to myself haha.
I suspected this, actually. I just didn't want to say it.
Personally, as the owner of all of the eighth gen consoles, in terms of enjoyment the PS4 is probably my least played console. If, for some reason, I had to sell them one by one, I would sell them in this order: PS4, Xbox One, Vita, Wii U, 3DS. At the same time, if I had to recommend a console to somebody, the PS4 would be the first one I recommend! It's not my favorite but it's the hands down best on the market for what most people want a console to do. Crazy, huh?
Anyway, the problem with threads like this is that the OP asks "Which game should I buy" and people reply with "Every game, ever! The console is just so awesome!!" It never fails. I'm willing to bet that 95% of the people have named these "Must own games" that they haven't even bought or played, yet. They don't take your financial situation into account.
As far as retail, I own The Evil Within, The Order, Infamaous SS, The Last of Us, Tomb Raider, Call of Duty AW, MGS Ground Zeroes, and LBP3 (waiting to play it with my daughter). I'm pretty happy with it so far. There are other good games like Shadow of Mordor, Drive Club, Bloodborne, etc. but they don't appeal to me. Buy what you like and don't let everybody decide for you. You'll end up broke and disappointed!
