Guilty Gear is awesome, good choice.

Yeah, I had the opportunity to play it with a friend on his PC and the truth is that it was love at first sight. I always wanted to see a port on Switch and I was once tempted to buy a PC to play it, but at the end of the day I decided that the best option (and cheaper) was to play it on PS4.

Yeah, if you don't have a PC that's your best option. I got Guilty Gear on it for cheap recently and I'm not regretting it, super fun game. I do hope that new entry next year does come to the Switch, it looks amazing.

Me personally, I'd grown up with sega and sony consoles.  Today, I've rebought the ones lost to time, so I have all of them.  However, I started with the genesis, and moved up from there, and with PS1, and moved up from there too, however, I did not generally own both at the same time, because one of them would break, and I'd flip to the other side.  Only my 4th sega genesis survived my childhood.

Anyway, I was console gaming until this generation.  I built my first gaming PC... was unsatisfied with it, so the following year, I built another.

There are just some things I cannot go back to.  I can play MGS4 on PS3, no problem.  Start to finish, even if I hadn't touched it for a looong while.  Same goes for something like Mega Man Legends, which I did in one sitting.  However, the PS4 has disappointed on so many levels.  I even got a PS4 pro to add to the collection, and it didn't do it for me.

Uncharted 2, an 3 were fun on PS3, but I couldn't play very much of uncharted 4.  I got bored of spider-man.  Never opened ratchett and clank, and God of War, I played partially.

Part of my issue with the PS4 is how disconnected it feels from the rest of the brand.  On PS3, I can play my entire catalogue of PS1, 2 and 3 games on the same console.  Games I previously owned on PS3, the multiplats, I had to rebuy.  The last of Us came with my PS4, which dulled my experience even further.  I have this new console, and packed with it, is this game I played tons on PS3.  It's like playing sonic 3D blast on sega genesis, and when you get a sega saturn, you get sonic 3D blast... again.  Then there was beyond: two souls, which eventhough I played a lot on PS3, and beat it 11 times, start to finish, I somehow did it again on PS4.  The only other PS4 game I ever finished, was Detroit: Become Human.

I guess I understand.  Not as many people had a PS3.  So for many of those games from there that got PS4 re-releases, they're new, but to me, it just cheapens the console, because I've played them already.  Dead or Alive 5, Guilty Gear Xrd, Blazblue, etc.

But, in 2016, I started gaming on PC, and then, getting multi-plats on console just seemed silly, and for me, it was.  So, today, I'm left with games that don't interest me, because I've played most of them already, or they just feel too similar.  Play through a story, through a closed environment, in most cases shooting, or hacking through enemies.  God of War, Uncharted 4, Spider-Man, they're too similar.  Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, and the other games, were just PS3 games to me.

I'm playing overwatch and tekken 7, on PC, these days.  I bought Tekken on PS4 and PC on release day, but curiosity made me try overwatch on console, just to see what it was like, and playing shooters with a controller isn't something I'm looking forward to doing again.  Recently, I went out of town, and bought mortal kombat 11 on PS4 because I can't take my PC with me, but since I've been home, my PS4 Pro has been in the box, the PS4 is on the shelf with the other consoles, and my PS3 consoles are connected along with my PC.   And then, adding to the fact that I have to pay for PS+.  Not something I'm willing to do when I know I wont play very much.

Glad you're enjoying it though.  To be honest, my Switch gets a little more time than my PS4, but it's due to everything I said above.  Having the exact same games to play on PS4 that I'd played on my PS3, and then finding out how underpowered the consoles were, just really put me off that console.  I'm looking forward to Last of Us 2, though.  And I will be getting that game on PS5, not PS4.

As you say, I would say that the Switch offered you something different from what you usually played. I don't know if you like platform games, but I would recommend Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, that game is pure fun, I love it. His soundtrack is amazing.

Hopefully you have more luck with the PS5. I'm looking forward to playing The Last of Us Remastered, so that I get hype with The Last of Us 2.

Man, you're coming in at a weird angle, when it comes to Sony consoles. You're also way behind the curve. I mean, PS3 when we are about move on to PS5, seriously? There are so many games coming out every gen that you will never catch up that way.

I have been with Sony from the first PS onwards, just moving on as the gens have come along, so from my angle the PS4 is the best thing ever. I upgraded to the Pro as well and have enjoyed the power boost with the amazing exclusives that it has (which you didn't seem to care for very much, but that's a matter of taste).

Can't wait for the PS5 after I'm done with this gen.

Cool! Try FFXV and REVII if you happen to be a fan of those two series.

Someday I want to play RE VII but I think I want to play RE II Remake before. That game is one of the most wanted to play this year. with DMC V.

As for FF, I think I'm going to play FF VII Remake xD directly

REmake 2 is great from what I've seen/heard. I have it and will play it soon. You should be able to find it on a discount during a PSN sales here and there. 
And yeah, there are a lot of great deals there. I got Guilty Gear Xrd Rev for $9 for example.
Nier: Automata I'd highly recommend. It was such a unique experience, and you can't tell why from looking at trailers. Just make sure to get all the main endings. It's imperative for this game more than any other I've played. (The joke endings are not important though.)

Yeah the PSN store can some times take time to load up for me as well. Not sure why, but usually it runs smoothly.

PS4 is old tech.



Visit my eBay stampers store: eims-stampers

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

FYI the new ps plus games are up now aswell, so you can also get Wipeout and Sniper Elite 4 :)

Add something meaningful to the thread next time please -.-



Cool, you are up to a whole new bunch of great stuff now.
PS4 games will only become cheaper for a good time and most are already very well discounted, so you'll have the chance to pick up a lot of games to play without becoming poor xD

You seem to like RPGs (at least action RPGs) so I would recommend you try some of the Soulsborne games, be it Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Sekiro or even Nioh (not from From Software), you may be getting a new love there, seriously, it can simply grow on you absurdly.
Horizon Zero Dawn is also a great game, don't miss it if you can.
If you are into turn based ones you should definitely get Persona 5 too, seriously, it's a must.
Out of the RPGs you should try Uncharted 4, (you can even play 1 to 3 on the PS4 before it too), it's a shorter game but it's remarkably good.
You can try Metal Gear Solid V, The Last Guardian, Gravity Rush, and a lot of other games too.
No need to rush, keep your pace, and enjoy yourself.

OP:  What BraLoD said.... give Persona 5 a shot, since your into RPGs.

The only thing is that sometimes the store takes a while to load (I don't know if it's just my thing or my internet but then I see my brother playing Apex legends fluently and I wonder what the problem is)

It's definitely not just a problem on your side. The PS Store is sluggish, unstable and needs improvement on PS5.

As for games, I'm currently having fun with Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2.
