Wow...I love the new poll on this thread. It reminded me how excited I am for the rest of 2021 on PS5! I voted for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, but you can't go wrong with ANY of those options.
My Hype Meter (out of 5 Stars) for each of the games:
***** - Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
****- - Horizon: The Forbidden West
***** - God of War: Ragnarok
**--- - Returnal
***** - Final Fantasy XVI
----- - Gran Turismo 7
***** - Resident Evil: Village
****- - Kena: Bridge of Spirits
Returnal looks okay but I'll wait on reviews and fan feedback. I wasn't as big a fan of Horizon as others but I'm still really excited, I have zero interest in Gran Turismo as I am not into racing games outside of toony Kart Racers or the occasional off-road racer (Though I acknowledge that Gran Turismo is one of the most popular and best-selling racing franchises ever), and I am excited for Kena but since it's a new IP from an unproven studio, I gotta temper my expectations a bit.
As for the others, holy hell so much hype and potential! Ratchet & Clank is pretty much guaranteed to be amazing, God of War is coming off one of the best games of all time, Resident Evil Village is bringing me back to that franchise with a game seemingly heavily inspired by Resident Evil 4 (Another best game of all time contender), and Final Fantasy XVI looks to be returning to the setting and world building of classic FF with the combat system of the VII Remake, a match made in heaven!
