Alright PlayStation people, I'm back. Thanks to my stimulus check, I finally got the resources to get a PlayStation 5 and I now at last actually have it! My first titles are Astro's Playroom (obviously) and Demon's Souls.
In terms of my personal style, I prize authenticity and creativity. I mostly play indie games, to that end, but have really liked many first-party releases from Sony since Heavy Rain came out in 2010 as well because a lot of them have had the sort of vibe I was just describing, but with AAA-scale budgets. The Last of Us has become pretty much my favorite video game franchise over the years, but as to other first-party titles from the last generation or so, I've also really enjoyed Death Stranding, The Last Guardian, the new God of War, Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy. I also liked Ghost of Tsushima and Horizon Zero Dawn, but would place those on tier 2.
Some games I've seen announced for the PlayStation 5 that I've been most looking forward to include...
Goodbye Volcano High
Where the Heart Is
Kena: Bridge of Spirits
Tier 2 priorities would be:
Jett: The Far Shore
Horizon Forbidden West
To my knowledge though, none of these games have yet been released. In the meanwhile, I have Astro's Playroom and Demon's Souls to keep me busy, but may well get bored waiting eventually I's afraid. What would you recommend someone with this sort of sensibility to tide me over? Like what's already available for PS5 that you suspect someone like me might get into?
