Dad of Boy God of War for ps4.
I had forgotten how good single-player story driven games were.
A lot of the industry seem to have forgotten that too. It's good to see that not all of it has though. Dad of Boy is definitely high on my must get once I get a PS4 list.
It is not that open-world games are bad. But ther is just too many of them these days. Besides there things that open-world/multiplayer games are really bad at doing. For example telling a good story. In any case it is a great game although a bit on the short side.
Oh, wasn't saying open world games are bad by any stretch. I mean, that Mad Max game is on my list too, after all.

I've recently been playing old Nintendo stuff for the nostalgia (mostly GameCube stuff). I've started a profile in Metroid Prime one and two, star Fox adventures, Ultimate Spider Man, Fzero Gx, Zelda Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess.


All fine these games (besides fzero and star fox) have compelling stories and a good atmosphere set up by the music. Holy sweet sh#t the music. I nearly cried when I heard the Metroid prime title theme for the first time in 8 years. The memories associated with that game... I still am moved deeply by most, if not all, old Nintendo game's soundtracks.
It's Wednesday, my dudes

One of the best thing at nintendo is sound design and the soundtracks. I think the only ones who can actually do better are the guys at square-soft

I started trying to learn some speed running tricks for fzero gx, and I managed to get my best lap time on Green plant Spiral to around 10 seconds below the world record

Horse riding simulator 1899 (Know commercially as Red Dead Redemption 2)
This game is gorgeous, even on my years old PS4 it looks crisp nice and detailed. The gameplay loop is fun an interesting. And the story is great, a lot of people say you can't make a good story on open world games since you can't control the how player will complete the missions. but this game manages to tell a deep coherent, and engaging story and hopefully more game developers will learn from this tittle on how to adapt really good storytelling to open worlds (i am looking at you squenix!)
There ia a lot of deserved praise around this game, but it is not perfect: For some reason the developer imagined that we would gawk endlessly at the precious 3D rendered vistas and landscapes so the fast travelling option is severely limited, so a lot of time you spend horserinding from point a to b and the map is huge. I play with my cellphone in hand so i can do something else while waiting to go from the camp to Saint Dennis , my favorite location in game.
There is also the character speed, while walking you have 5 speeds: dragging you body across the mud, pacing around on a cool night, normal walking, break neck running and slightly faster running or sprinting. The first too are only available indoors or in camp so it is a pain to move around those place, and outside you are either dashing or casually strolling around wich makes any precision movement very hard to do. Like turning around and looting a chest, for whatever reason feels like a whole puzzle, you always seem to en on top or too far from anything interactable again since there are only two speed when moving. On top of that you characters feels like a tank.
The problem is less severe on horseback as the speed progression is more linear, but prepare to loose your thumb as you need to keep smashing that button to keep the gallop. so most of the galloping is done on cinematic mode or as ia call it 'just drive yourself' mode.
The gunplay is ok, nothing like a true and thought shooter and i have no idea why they only give you a dot as a crosshair but it is nice.Althoguh sometimes you actively feel like the gun controls fight you.
Finally hunting is a chore, you need to track hunt and pelt the animals, then take them to town to sell them for less money than what the ammo you used cost. I probably simple suck at that mechanic, but it never seem to hunt any decent animals.
Also you loot everything independently and the animation plays everytime...

I've played through the CoD games I have again in the past week and change. The Modern Warfare trilogy, Black Ops one and two (Two of my top three CoD campaigns right there), Ghosts (the third, the above three in no particular order), Advanced Warfare. Started playing the Uncharted games again. By the end of the month, I'll have a PS4 finally and I'll be starting in on Warframe first while I wait to get money to buy games with.
