So final year of the 8th gen is upon us. So that got me wondering, wich game is gona define the PS4.
So not to long ago, the last of us was named the game of the decade by some. So that got me asking, if we are putting a lot of expectations on naughty dog again. I mean, there is no doubt the ps3 ended with a bang with the last of us and they can have the same finale with the ps4 with part 2.
Naughty dog is considered by many as the #1 studio that is under sony and TLOU was in no small part a big reason for that. But this gen sony has brought forth quite a lot of games that can challenge naughty dog for that top spot. Games like Horizon Zero Dawn and the Last Guardian and Spider man really put some pressure, but I think most of us can agree that the current Top dog that holds the crown is Santa Monica's God of War. That game set the bar pretty high not just for sony studios but pretty much for all. Who would have thought that it could even beat in praises, reviews and game of the year against Rockstars Read Dead Redemption 2 wich was one of the most anticipated games of all time from one of the biggest developers of all. Its been often joked about that when it comes to quality sony's only real competitors are themselves.
We can all assume that they always save the best for last But TLOU2 is not the only big contender coming out this year. Ghost Of Tsushima wich also looks incredible is set to be the last big sony game for the gen. Not to mention That this year there is strong third party competition with Cyberpunk and We have FFVII Remake wich is another greatly anticipated game that will be exclusive to ps4 for a while. Lets not kid ourselves, Cyberpunk is most likely the biggest game of the year and biggest mass appeal from a beloved dev. I would not be surprised if the gen ended up defined by Cyberpunk, But just like in 2018 how God Of war just stole the show against all odds against Read Dead Redemption 2, If someone is up to the task of going head to head with CD project Read and Cyberpunk it is undoubtedly Naughty Dog with The last of Us part 2.
Let me know what you guys think.
It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.
