Nah loving everything Sony has been doing. As far as the Exclusives all feeling the same, they really don’t, maybe it’s just you in that case.

 

I only felt this for Ubisoft games for a while, but then after Horizon, I wasn't so sure. Other people made their point about the subject, like Jim Sterling and Bunnyhop, his video on this makes it clearer:

Sony is complacent, they always do this when they feel they don't need to try anymore.

 

Really sad tbh.

 

And when they try something new it's... censorship.

Go get a Xbox One, you'll regret instantly that.

 

Yyyeah, not looking better. Although it has Rare Replay and backwards compatibility (Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey), but that's like a month's worth of interesting material.

This “censorship” is so mild I’m not sure it really effects anything. I just disagree on the Exclusives being “the same” cause they just aren’t.

I have to admit there has been a large influx of open world sandbox games recently and it is starting to become tiring. I’m having to play more indie games in order to actually get more niche experiences as all the triple AAA titles recently are either third person or sandbox. Can’t companies try and branch out into other directions? But then on the other hand, if people are buying these games constantly then the gaming companies will assume that we want more of the same 🤔

I am rather looking forward ot getting Days Gone next month and Dying Light 2 when that lands.  This year my main excitement is for the Crash Team Racing remaster!

 

If there really isn't anything that floats your boat like you said PS3 is a great alternative when it comes to discovering many hidden gems you never even knew about.

You mean like dead ps2 classics project, vita, backwards compatibility and in general laziness?

 

What I'm saying is the truth lol, my perspective is when Sony is at the top them "trying" is marginal effort to make the fanboys happy.

 

But that's just my opinion on them, which is pretty fair.

Why would they keep making Vita games if they were a financial failure? They never once said they were gonna do backwards compatibility, they’ve even said it’s impossible for them, Cell processor and all. PS2 classics isn’t really a big deal to begin with. You aren’t entitled or owed anything. Sony is the farthest thing from lazy. Nothing wrong with having fans or as you call them in such a negative way “fanboys”.

I mean I beg to differ considering every project they make is either a gimmick half marketed or abandoned, like move, vr, vita, or whatever the fuck.

 

Point is they are complacent compared to efforts they have done in the past which was to compensate for losing the so called console war.

 

They aren't doing anything really worth noting, and you are right nothing is owed hince the complacent laziness of said company.

 

They don't need to do anything, fans would defend or justify literally anything they do or don't do, that's my point lol

Guess you haven’t seen the massive amount of push behind PSVR?  That’s not an abandoned thing at all. I don’t see said complacencies. I’d say that’s worth nothing.

Not sure how you could think TLoU, R&C (presumably PS4) and God of War (presumably PS4) feel the same. I could see if it were the various cinematic third person shooters, and maybe give you God of War just due to how the camera is. But even still. Astro Bot wasn't even that long ago, and you didn't even finish Gravity Rush 2 (or play 1) and I didn't see Tearaway Unfolded on your profile either.

Games like that don't sell as well, so they don't make them as much. I buy them all, but I'm only one person. I can't change an entire company's behavior with my own purchase. Either buy different things or don't be surprised when the most popular thing is what they make. They're making and funding what sells. Open world games. Third person shooter games with a focus on story. That's what has been working for them. Welcome to business.

I still enjoy the games, but I tire of California's idiocy. They shouldn't be the ones talking with Japanese developers releasing games in Japan. That should be SIEJ. Even if Sony is going to be censorous buffoons the least they can do is just give the ruleset to the Japan branch and delegate to them. But I think they'd scoff at that which is why they don't do that. Since it's absurd. It's ridiculous to have Japanese developers have to go through English speakers in California just to get a game released in Japan. All because the company is filled with pearl clutching moral busy bodies. If it isn't AO on the ESRB rating (or equivilents worldwide) leave it alone. I doubt the ESRB would give anything actually illegal anything but an AO rating. If they wouldn't, then just tell them to get with it instead of putting a huge censorous barrier for no reason.

But whatever. That and the atrocious UI designers that Sony (and basically every modern company) employs are the only issues I have off the top of my head.

Atrocious UI designs? They have some of the best UI these days.

Your thoughts don't sound like faults of Sony to me, and rather a reflection on the modern gaming industry as it has stood the past few years in the AAA market and with that I agree wholeheartedly.

What OP said about Sony could be sadly extended to nowadays market, it's a general problem.

Never been better to play games on PlayStation, there's so much shit (I mean that in all senses of the word) on the market you'd be hard pressed not to find something worthwhile to play. Not all of Sony's exclusives this gen have been for me, but they've all been top quality productions, with a lot of attention and care put into them - and that's more than can be said of the shite that's been put out on xbox the last 5 years. The censorship shit gives me pause for thought, and that can snowball into something much worse, but for the time being it's not making me turn my head elsewhere.

 

I gotta say as well, maybe it's gamers in general that are just getting cynical af as well, everyone's moaning about shit week in, week out these days, instead of just, you know, enjoying their hobby and getting on with it. There's a lot of aggravating shit in this industry, but it's not worth the arseache, and overthinking it all to this extent, it just becomes exhausting.

Why should Naughty Dog do a new ip when they are working on The Last of Us Part 2. 

 

For me Sony is doing everything right at the moment and I couldnt be a more happy gamer. 

 

Maybe you just are in a period of no hype for gaming, no matter what the companies do.

 

Play Spider-Man for a while, or maybe its gonna feel like God of War to you, I donno 😜

They've been doing it for each generation.

  • 4 Crash Bandicoot games for PS1 (various spinoff by others)
  • 4 Jak games for PS2 (various spinoffs by others)
  • 3 Uncharted games for PS3 (various spinoff by others) AND The Last of Us
  • ... another 2 Uncharted games and another Last of Us

Your opening post sums up why I’ve mostly been playing older AAA games and indie games. 

 

Games like Axiom Verge, Velocity 2X, Downwell and Rogue Legacy were at least 10 times more engaging and thrilling than anything Sony Computer Entertainment has put out these past two years. 

 

When a game that is merely a sliver of a fraction of the budget that was needed to make God of War and Marvel’s Spider-Man is somehow more fun, obviously something is wrong.

 

Dead Space 2 was a thrilling platinum when I went for it. There is barely anything this generation that offers that kind of thrill and excitement, apart from indie games and one or two odd AAA games. 

 

Marvel’s Spider-Man is just boring and monotone. The open world formula it has has been beaten to death, all the villains are formulaic, the story is nothing special, and Spider-Man isn’t really a guy I care about. What’s so great about this game? The graphics, that’s what it does best. But anybody that knows me knows that I don’t buy a game for it’s graphics, I buy a game for it’s gameplay. Everything else in Marvel’s Spider-Man is just average and mediocre. 

 

God of War 2018 was a disappointment when I realized that it was mostly a boring quest to spread some women’s ashes. It lacks the thrill and excitement that the older games had. God of War 3 was a major breakthrough. God of War 2018 is just some boring quest that tries too hard to be open world. The lack of good bosses was another disappointment. 

 

In all honesty I will probably have a lot more fun playing Vanquish than I will playing a Sony exclusive that is mostly just a dazzling graphics powerhouse. 

 

Your description of the PS2 era is spot on. Metal Gear Solid 2, the original God of War, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, Devil May Cry, Silent Hill 2, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas and Shadow of the Colossus were fucking phenomenal.

 

Nowadays? Let’s get Resident Evil 2, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, God of War 2018, Assassins Creed Odyssey, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Fallout 76, Battlefield V and Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 to copy each other and use the same formulas over and over. Let’s make the games more boring at the cost of making everything more cinematic and full of cutscenes. 

 

If you’re tired of Sony’s IPs, play some good indie games like Bastion and niche titles like Yakuza Kiwami. You’ll be pleasantly surprised. 

 

Thank you for expressing how I’ve felt for the past year.
