Agreed with AngrylittleAlchemist. Give is some clues as to your gaming tastes.

realistically any genre besides racing, generic FPS combat, and sports. RPG games are open-world games are typically what im use to playing

Persona 5 and Nier: Automata (although it's on Xbox as well) are good bets.
Yakuza 0 is also really good.

Okay, well first of all Horizon is NOT Breath of the Wild with dinosaurs. It's closer to a Ubisoft game than the newest Zelda. It's mostly combat oriented. Don't really know what to tell you besides that ... lol.

If you want great exclusives and are on a budget than Bloodborne and The Last of Us(if you haven't played it) are great picks (also really like Infamous, but one superhero game should be enough for now).

If you have a little extra money ... God of War is pretty great, if not for the story than for all the side quests.

Agreed. Can't really go wrong with anything from Naughty Dog. Bloodborne, while it isn't for everyone, is great for those that find themselves enjoying Souls-like games. You can also find a used copy of Uncharted 4 for really cheap (< $10), as it was in a bundle at one time so pretty much everyone has a copy.

Some other recommendations might be Persona 5, Dragon Quest XI, Final Fantasy XV, and Monster Hunter World. (If you're a fan of JRPGs)

If you get one before October 4, you can sign up for PS Plus and get a free copy of Destiny 2.



Any thread like this will have people telling you to buy roughly 700 new games. I'll just say this:

A new copy would run you $30 or less. Good game but don't go spending a couple hundred dollars unless it's something you really want to do. There's plenty to play on PS4 but if the only reason you're considering getting one is because you won a game, I say wait a minute.

Also, when you do get a new console, try to focus on a handful of games. Too many games at one time only guarantees that something is going to be neglected. At best, you'll rush through some games that really deserved your attention.

Also, Horizon isn't comparable to BoTW , that is a phony comparison people were making at the time of both releases. In my opinion Horizon is the better game if you were to compare but besides for the open world they are very different games.

So which is it, you can compare them or you can't? :P

But yeah, John's right. There were a lot of people making comparisons about the two games as they were released at around the same time, when in reality they don't have much in common.

But real talk, Horizon is an amazingly epic game. One of the few open world games that I actually managed to finish (almost completed all side content). BUTTTTTT... I also finished Zelda, and Zelda is on a whole 'nother level. While game reviews are mostly subjective, I can *objectively* say that Zelda has been much more highly regarded as the better game (97% on metacritic vs 89%).

And I don't want to spark a debate, unless it was in good taste. John is among my top 5 favorite VGChartzians, and I value his opinions.



It’s always nice to win things.

I never won anything.

Here I was thinking Horizon Zero Dawn was more of an Assassin's Creed III Fallout CyberPunk Tomb Raider with machine-learning Terminator-dinosaurs...

And Congrats on Winning Tetris!!



There are to many games to list... but you could just pick all first party/exclusives AAA games for PS4 and have a blast.

About HZD being BotW with Dinossaurs that have been said a lot so I would agree it is a reasonable way to summarize it.

This is a very good advise.
