    Should I Eventually Buy These Games?

    Naturally by now there are a ton of games that I'm interested in purchasing for my PS4 but at the moment they're just too expensive. I almost never buy a console game unless it is $20-30 and most of the games I'm interested in have just come out or are coming out next year. I've heard these are all good games but just to be certain if any of these games are bad then I can skip out on them. The prices I mentioned are the cheapest I can find them for at the moment (ones without price are on PS Store/haven't released yet).

    Resogun
    Resogun Heroes
    Flower
    Towerfall: Ascension
    Transistor
    Don't Starve
    Dragon Age: Inquisition - $68
    Far Cry 4 - $70
    The Evil Within - $50
    Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor - $60
    Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition - $58
    Lego Marvel Superheroes - $41
    Lego The Hobbit - $48
    Alien: Isolation - $60
    LittleBigPlanet 3 - $69
    FIFA 15 - $64
    Watch Dogs - $38.50
    Metro: Redux - $37
    The Crew - $69
    Infamous: First Light - $20 (Should probably get it at $15 or less since it's really just DLC)
    GTA V

    Dying Light
    Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
    The Order: 1886
    Bloodborne
    Until Dawn
    Deep Down
    The Last Guardian

    Watch Dogs and Metro: Redux are on sale second-hand at EB Games.
    Infamous First Light is going to be a free PS+ game in December.
    Shadow of Mordor and The Evil Within are both $30 on the US PS Store. Setup a US PSN ID and US PayPal account to buy them.
    Sleeping Dogs, GTA V, Far Cry 4, Alien: Isolation and DA Inquisition I'll get when they hit $30.
    I'll never buy an EA Sports game again - the servers close too quickly.
    Resogun and Transistor are good, if you're into Indies.
    Flower, Towerfall, Don't Starve, Lego Marvel, Lego Hobbit...meh.
    LBP3 like its predecessors is a grand idea, poorly executed. Bargain bin territory.

    Don't forget The Last Of Us, Black Flag, Knack, Shadow Fall and Infamous 2 - the latter 4 are on sale at EB Games.
    Diablo 3 RoS is great on PS4 and is on sale on the US PS Store.

    Um..no I don't really and I haven't.

    @ant1th3s1s

    I already have TLOU, infamous second son and killzone, and last I checked knack is apparently terrible. I'm not a total fan of Diablo but I've only played the original. I won't be getting PS Plus until February/March so I'd miss out on those. I prefer physical Bluray discs as apposed to downloads and haven't got PayPal yet. I was intending to buy FIFA just for the sake of having a soccer game.

    And I thought people said Flower was amazing?

    My PS4 was a gift by my parents, I had $70 to spend on Steam. That's not a lot of money.

    No need for you to justify anything, really. Faust's just having one of those days.

    I would skip a lot of these...
    You can get Metro/GTA/Sleeping Dogs a lot cheaper on PS3
    Watch Dogs, Alien and Don't Starve are really good, especially if you're into stealth gameplay.

    EW is fun but a skip unless you really want a survival horror game.

    Wait for DA and FC to drop and skip everything else.

    It's a very good action-platformer. Quite hard at the upper difficulties.

    5 years ago it was a good tech demo for the PS3's 6-axis controls. PS4...save your dough.

    I was under the impression that there wasn't really any platforming. Just action and a little stealth.

    I don't use my PS3 and won't be able to except now (to get a few last trophies) as I took it and lots of stuff I got for it overseas, so it's either I buy it for my PS4 or I don't buy it at all (unless it's on PC on Steam for $10 or so).


    Skipping games coming out next year, this list is what I'm down to (buying them at around $30 or less):

    Resogun
    Resogun Heroes
    Transistor
    Don't Starve
    Dragon Age: Inquisition
    Far Cry 4
    The Evil Within
    Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor
    Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition
    Alien: Isolation
    LittleBigPlanet 3 (bargain bin)
    Watch Dogs (when price goes down a little more)
    Metro: Redux (when price goes down a little more)
    The Crew (I'm uncertain of this because it practically requires PS Plus and I'm not sure if this will be good)
    Infamous First Light
    GTA V

    Stealth? Not really. It's more of a device to get through doorways. But there's definitely platforming a-plenty.

    It's in the same vein as Ratchet & Clank, Jak & Daxter, Sly Cooper, God of War etc, which Sony developers do quite well. It's not the best game on PS4 (better than reviewers would have you believe), but it's cheap enough now not to matter.

    The only real negative is it's much harder than your run-of-the-mill platformer, so combat can be challenging and the checkpoints are a little harsh. The Plat for Knack has to be earned.

    I'd have to see it to believe it. None of the footage I've seen shows even a hint of platforming. It's nothing like Sly or Jak and Daxter.

    It's a good list. I'm not sure about The Crew either lol. Shades of Driveclub with all the delays..

    Action platformer - that's the comparison. On that basis, it fits the bill. If you haven't played it, how could you know?!?

    I'm playing it right now and I'm jumping, double-jumping, jump-attacking, dodging and generally moving between static or moving platforms in an upwards, downwards or sidewards fashion, all the while defeating enemies employing differing patterns which you need to counter using a variety of attacks at your disposal. You know...an action platformer.

    just going by what I've seen. reviews. etc.

    jumping in combat doesn't make it a platformer. occasionally jumping up a step and back down again doesn't make it a platformer.

    95% action, 4% cutscene and 1% platforming doesn't make it a platformer.

    As I've said I haven't played the game, but I was *looking* for platforming when I made that decision. Still haven't found any.

    Your breakdown is way off the mark.

    If R&C, J&D, Sly, GoW and hell...even Uncharted are "3d action platformers", then so is Knack.

    Are any of them platformers akin to Guacamelee, Spelunky, Limbo, Rayman or Sound Shapes? No, because that'd be stupid and the comparison was never made.

    You're arguing semantics - just accept that the gameplay is as described. You jump, a lot, between platforms as a segway between single or small groups of enemies, while collecting shit to power up skills and equipment. I've just described every game I listed. Action. Fucking. Platformer...Boom.

    Are any of them platformers akin to Guacamelee, Spelunky, Limbo, Rayman or Sound Shapes? No, because that'd be stupid and the comparison was never made. Especially by me.

    the most worthless 'platforming' I've ever seen.

    Seriously...why do you even bother arguing? It's petty, pointless and no matter how you cut it, you're just plain wrong.

    You've admitted to having no idea. Leave it at that and move along.
