Looks like between the cutting edge AAA production values and gameplay potential that God of War is the pick, though I did grab the standalone Last of Us followup for a few bucks just now assuming I'll play and like the main game (but since Wally's last Bloodborne update was that he got to the earliest boss his recommendations can sit =). I already started it, but didn't get far because I wanted to try the RE2 demo before bed (I was kind of taking my time, semi-hoping it would run out :magni:). I'm going to get a second crack at it when I see how it plays on my PC anyway. It ran out right after I got the shotgun!

As for GTA 5, just consider it in the same vein as RDR2: a great game that suffers from pacing issues because Rockstar is trying to make it a movie.

I thought the problem was, at least in the case of RDR2, they were trying to make it some kind of reality (or a novel). What I played of GTAV definitely felt like a movie though.

...oh, wait, you're talking about the 2018 game.

I really hate this fad of naming the latest iteration of a series after the series itself.

I actually like it because that's kind of how the medium works anyway where you're often playing the latest iteration or interpretation rather than it being a long serialized story. That's great when it is plotted like that, but otherwise I don't want to feel like I have to play a bunch of dated, decade old games I won't enjoy in order to try the latest, and theoretically most modernly relevant, in the series (apologies to Rhombaad =). I'll probably never play Assassin's Creed because there's approximately 10,000 of them and I wouldn't know where to start (I have 2, which I hear is great and in Italy, but probably not so impressive now). Speaking of which, I picked up Uncharted 4 on sale too rather than the trilogy for the same price. Like I said, impress me with the new one because I'm not time traveling to play a bunch of dated games in a series I may not even like; again I heard 2 was the best, but unless it's a transcendent all time great game I'm not too keen on using my PS4 to play a bunch of remastered PS3 games.

A couple weeks ago, I played a few rounds of Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner on PS4. I'm was quite impressed with it; it still looks good even though it's over 15 years old now, and the upscaled textures make it look like it was made recently. I'd say I really wish a sequel would be made for it...but seeing the state Konami is in, that's a wish I know I'd regret.

Since then, I've been playing Divinity: Original Sin 2, one of many games I bought with my Christmas money. It had a bit of a slow start, and it can be pretty overwhelming at the beginning with the sheer number of ways you can build your character and team, but I'm really digging the old-school openness it's going for. I like how it has no set path you're supposed to follow as you are in a lot of RPGs made these days; it just kind of lets you figure things out on your own and find your own way, kind of like the first Fallouts.

God of War has some great combat potential, you can get really deep into the multitude of skills and ways in which to kill enemies. It's probably among the best out of any action game out there, both in terms of feel and technicality.

It certainly is. You can slice enemies up with your chainblades, hurl lightning bolts, turn them into stone with the decapitated head of a gorgon, chop them with a big sword, and...oh, wait, you're talking about the 2018 game.

I'm leaning toward God of War since it's the latest and very well-received, but Wally made a strong case for The Last of Us...

Finished all the DLC in Spider-Man and am probably done with it because 100 percenting all the side shit for a few suits I'll wear for approximately 120 seconds isn't worth it (I know, I did it for the Spider-Verse suit and immediaitely stopped caring once I got it =). But, which PS4 game to start next...

The Last of Us Remastered
God of War
GTAV
Skyrim

Both are great games, but God of War has the better narrative. But, if you're wanting something quicker, then go with the Last of Us. The story is about 10-12 hours shorter than God of War, but has fantastic pacing. God of War gets a little slow at times, but overall is the better game.

Either way, you're going to enjoy yourself.

As for GTA 5, just consider it in the same vein as RDR2: a great game that suffers from pacing issues because Rockstar is trying to make it a movie. Still fun, though.

God of War is pretty neat, especially if you have an interest in Nordic mythology. Having played the previous God of War games isn't required, but it's a plus.
That being said I liked The Last of Us when I played it too (although it's been a while).

"Farewell Heisei." It's significant to Miura of course because Berserk's whole life has been the Heisei era (1989-2019).

Wow, I've never looked into Japanese eras before. I've only been tangentially aware of the Edo, Meiji, and Showa, and that was by name recognition only. And now I've only just discovered that Japan still has an emperor! I always just assume that was done away with at the end of WWII when Japan adopted its constitution. The more you know!
