Sony thinking globaly with game design, so games appeal to more markets... is somehow bad?
Yep who wants them listening to consumers anyways right?

Maybe people don't "only play narrative games" and enjoy other types of games too?

I'm also worried about the direction they're taking, for the reasons you mentioned and then some. GoW and Days Gone left a bad taste in my mouth.



Since when do single player orientated games mean bad game play? The idea that a story driven game will have bad game play is unfounded.

OT: I'm loving Sony's first party direction with games like Horizon, TLG, Uncharted 4 + Lost Legacy, Gravity Rush 2, God of War, even niche games like Dreams & Everybody Golfs seem are interesting. No need for more multiplayer games on the market.



Typically when you try to cater to everybody, you end up catering to nobody. Swiss army knife games tend to feel like they have no focus and they don't really hit any of their notes to make something special.

But Sony hasn't really made any real missteps yet with their first party games. I think they have done well at maintaining their focus and adding to the things that make their games great. They haven't lost focus. I think this way of thinking is certainly dangerous if you lose focus, but until Sony does, I won't complain.

lol you don't need to count anything, you can tell by the users and everytime there is a "most wanted" or "most anticipated" or "best game of", it's always Nintendo dominated. Or polls of sorts, always Nintendo dominated.

These are some bold claims, Ali. Especially considering how you dismiss the importance of counting.

And now let's put one of your claims to the test by counting and we'll be using the help of axumblade, a user who runs most-wanted threads that count most-wanted titles through votes submitted by users of this very site.

Well there seems to be a miscommunication, what I meant be "dominated" was that the top games are most Nintendo games, which they usually are. Also, of course PS4 is going to have the most, it actually has multiplats LOL, and it also has the most exclusives. So the PS4 having the most is going to happen.



"There is only one race, the pathetic begging race"

I like where Sony is going, they give us some of the best games from any publisher out there, their franchises are varied... and if you don't care for narative, get Grand Tourismo or Wipeout... Wipeout never bothered me with a story mode (I can't stand those in racing games) ... as far as games as a service, I could not care less about those and I am not aware of what it hot in that field, but I assume Destiny, Overwatch, etc. are all pretty much what you need to get people's attention these days... but as I said, I don't do online MP, could not care less for it and other than buying DLC when it's something like TLoU: Left Behind or Infamous First Light. and the one that will be released for Uncharted 4...

Not sure what you are worried about? is it because we have been a couple of weeks since the last major major release of an exclusive on the PS4?

In that case, yes. It's not unusual that a Nintendo title grab the top spot in these lists. Nintendo has some very strong IP but understand that it's not like Nintendo fans can vote for an uber-hyped non-Nintendo title for the Switch. Red Dead Redemption 2 is not coming to Switch nor is Persona 5 or Final Fantasy XV.

Overall, a greater number of PS4 titles rank in these most-wanted lists than any other platform meaning PS4 titles are likely showing up with the greatest frequency in user votes than any other platform. This suggests that there is a higher number of PS fans than any other fanbase. This runs counter to the claim that
