What are you playing nowadays? What PS5 games are you looking forward to?

1 : Anonymous2021/03/08 20:15 ID: m0owwr

I was lucky enough to get PS5 during the holiday season at MSRP, but after Cyberpunk's buggy release I feel like I haven't found any other interesting game to play. Curious about what others are playing or looking forward to?

Edit: Well this got a whole lot more attention than I expected ! Thanks for the silver !! I hope we see bunch of good new games come out this year.

At this point. Anything.

Yeah, for all the people with FOMO... you are not missing much. Take a look in the thread with what everyone is playing, heh...

After playing a few launch games the only thing left is games from ps4 with higher FPS.

It’s going to be awhile before the 5 comes into its own.

This is for the players with a 4 and played a large portion of their library already, of course if you missed the 4 you will have the most perfect time.

I know the feeling, but no game is getting me excited at the moment, any fun games you are playing ?

Im new to Playstation so im just playing all the PS4 exclusive right now.

ID: gq9gqb6

Which is your favorite so far?

Just got PS5, been swapping between Hitman 3, Miles Morales and Control (which is like a whole new game coming from PS4).

Got Valhalla on deck and can not wait for Deathloop. Gonna hit infamous: Second Son again though to bring it full circle, still one of my all-time faves from PS4.

ID: gq91yzo

I've heard good things about Hitman 3, but was too expensive, so waiting for the price to drop before I pick it up.

How is Control different on PS5? I've been meaning to pick it up but heard it can be buggy.

I've just received my PS5 this morning before work so I'm downloading everything and getting set up for this evening. It's exciting, even for an old codger like myself.

I'm thinking of a quick runthrough of Astro's Playroom given the praise I've seen on this sub, but I've also got Immortals Fenyx Rising, Bugsnax, and Days Gone lined up too. Any thoughts on those?

ID: gq9jzrc

Immortals fenyx rising is really full it gets repetitive near the end like any Ubisoft game but I really had so much fun with it. Except for this bullshit puzzle at the end that made me almost delete and quit the game

ID: gqa6d43

I just finished Days Gone, easily one of my favorite PlayStation exclusives. Be wary that it starts off slow - you'll spend a lot of time getting by with hand-crafted melee weapons and rationing your ammo before you really deck out your loadout and bike. Then it's a total blast.

It also has a mission that is one of my favorites of all time (Sawmill).

Returnal for now. Then Ratchet and ff7 DLC for now. Right now am just enjoying Warzone and Destiny 2.

I really am surprised with Sackboy. It’s an amazing platformer

8 : Anonymous2021/03/08 20:18 ID: gq90osr

I’ve been playing the PS+ Collection and free monthly games. I’m waiting for something to drop, I’ve been patient but I really would like to play a game

ID: gq9108g

What games have you been having fun with? I feel like I’ve already played everything I like haha

9 : Anonymous2021/03/08 20:35 ID: gq935ta

Playing 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim and GoT but I'm burnt out from GoT a bit too repetitive for me.

Loved Demon's Souls Remake, was my first entry into the Souls series so definitely keen on any possible upcoming Ps5 Souls games.

ID: gq98twi

I didn't find GoT repetitive. But for me, I was just having open world fatigue. Taking a break from all open world games and play something more linear.

ID: gqa1sbp

Try out the old souls games too, they’re amazing

ID: gqahbds

I’m a big fan of 13 Sentinels. I couldn’t put it down after five hours or so.

ID: gq9bpc5

I haven't played Demon's Souls either, will have to check that out I guess, just waiting for the prices to drop since I don't want to pay full price for it.

ID: gq9me3d

I also found Ghost repetitive. It’s a beautiful game, the combat is fun, but ultimately every repetitive task outlived its welcome about a quarter of the way through. And the story was dull as nails.

Control UE. Then gotta play Persona 5 Strikers. Waiting for Ratchet

ID: gq9ax17

I just started Strikers. It's more fun than I anticipated. I almost skipped it but weirdly I wanted more "time" with my heart stealing friends.

11 : Anonymous2021/03/08 23:12 ID: gq9ni5r

So much Nioh 2. Absolutely fantastic game, actually prefer it to Demon Souls. Much more intricate gearing and combat systems. And just as horribly unforgiving. And frustrating. I love it so far! Still on NG, but getting close to the DLC.

Medieval remastered. It was my first ps1 game so it was fitting that I played it first again on my ps5.

ID: gq9twnt

Love this game

Because I haven’t seen anyone mention it; Stray.

I can just see my cat now, lounging in my lap as I play.

ID: gq9n2zq

Yes! My dream is that there is an unlockable skin where it flips the Spider-Cat skin in Miles. So you'd be a cat with a little Spider-Man in your backpack.

Im replaying all the soulsborne games. (darksouls 1,2,3 / sekiro/ bloodborne),can't wait too play DemonSouls! still waiting to play mine i pre-ordered because of scalping...

15 : Anonymous2021/03/08 20:28 ID: gq92311

Well, I just beat Spiderman ps4 again, but this is my first remastered playthrough, and I’m done the heist dlc and working my way through turf wars and eventually silver lining. I’m also playing gow after the 4k60 patch. After I beat those I want to play through ghost at 4k60, as I’ve only beat it once and barely got the platinum before my senior year of high school/dual enrollment in college started so I’ve been kind of busy with that lol. I’ve pre ordered ratchet and clank and am probably going to buy Kena bridge of spirits in the near future.

I just bought Yakuza like a Dragon since the ps5 upgrade dropped recently and its super addictive for some reason.

I've been down on turn based games for a long time now but P5R and Like a dragon both hooked me.

17 : Anonymous2021/03/08 20:47 ID: gq94owm

Just finished Persona 5 Strikers a few days ago then moved onto Lords of the Fallen which I finished a few hours ago. Not PS5 games obviously, but playing on my PS5 for the better performance (Persona is extremely sharp in graphics mode and the framerate never really falters on PS5 even in that mode.)

The main PS5 game I'm looking forward to in the immediate future is Scarlet Nexus as it's supposed to be out sometime this summer. Plenty of other games I am looking forward to as well like FF16 and Ghostwire Tokyo but those are further off.

I’m playing Mortal Shell right now. I’m a big Dark Souls fan and I’m pretty good at those games, and every other Souls like game comes fairly easy to me.

But this one, there’s something about it I suck at. Idk if it’s just getting used to the harden mechanic or something but I die more in this damn thing than Dark Souls for sure.

It is cool though. I beat the first big boss yesterday and coming back to the over world being totally different was an awesome surprise.

19 : Anonymous2021/03/08 22:39 ID: gq9jkz2

Yeah gaming is really dead right now in terms of good new releases, been this way since the beginning of 2021. The closest upcoming game that actually looks good to me is NieR Replicant

20 : Anonymous2021/03/08 22:45 ID: gq9ka4x

Currently playing Control. I've only played for 2-3 hours but so far I'm having a blast. 60 fps is incredible and the graphics are really good. Just feels nice to play a game that's different.

ID: gq9z96r

I do not know your skill level in games but I personally found control a little difficult lol, do the side missions get those upgrade points. I couldn't beat it on ps4 but I finally beat it on ps5, definitely a different but welcome game, reminded me of the matrix

21 : Anonymous2021/03/08 23:27 ID: gq9p67z

Destiny 2 is so glorious on PS5, and this season is pretty good too. I was looking forward to Avengers but now with the XP fiasco, I’ll probably play though Hawkeye’s new story parts, check out the 4K update for a bit and then just delete it lol.

Might dip back into Valhalla but Control is next on the list to play though, with Deathloop too.

22 : Anonymous2021/03/09 00:13 ID: gq9uft6

Outriders looks cool, I liked the demo. Looking forward to that, just trying to decide wether to get it on PC or PS5

23 : Anonymous2021/03/08 21:01 ID: gq96o0v

Destiny 2. A lot. The PS5 loading times and smooth 60-120fps in 4K really make a difference to how the game plays. I wish they would add trigger haptics but I guess most people would probably turn them off anyway.

24 : Anonymous2021/03/08 20:19 ID: gq90w6e

I'm playing Yakuza 0 at the moment. Picked up Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition to play after that.

25 : Anonymous2021/03/08 20:56 ID: gq9615p

Days Gone NG+ Survival II. Looking forward to HFW and GT7 this year.

ID: gq9t2er

Sorry brother GT7 got delayed til 2021!

It was literally THE reason I got a PS5 but to be honest I should have expected it

ID: gq9bjt6

Days Gone is awesome, is it any better on PS5?

26 : Anonymous2021/03/08 21:02 ID: gq96ui7

Mostly Ghost of Tsushima. Sadly I have beaten most of my games so even though the better performance is great its not enough for me to replay them. Looking forward to FF7 DLC and patch, God of War Ragnarok, Elden Ring, and Sun Wukong even though that’s a ways away

27 : Anonymous2021/03/08 21:10 ID: gq97ybw

Right now waiting for Nier: Replicant, Resident Evil 8, Returnal, Mass Effect Remaster, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and Final Fantasy 7 Remake PS5 version.

28 : Anonymous2021/03/08 21:15 ID: gq98my0

Playing Persona 5 strikers rn, waiting for Nier Replicant

29 : Anonymous2021/03/09 14:54 ID: gqbzmga

To me it was worth it just to have better performance in PS4 titles. I'm currently playing through Ghost of Tsushima and it is absolutely beautiful while rocking a locked 60fps in high resolution mode. I really enjoyed playing through Astro's Playroom (the only PS5 title I have completed so far - it hooked me instantly, such a charming game). I am also working through Miles Morales and Demon's Souls. On top of all of that, is my gaming addiction, Destiny 2 which I've moved from maining on PC to PS5.

Darksiders 3 and Darksiders Genesis waiting for Returnal.

35 : Anonymous2021/03/08 20:49 ID: gq950jb

Ratchet and clank, ratchet and clank and then ratchet and clank tbh.

32 : Anonymous2021/03/08 21:20 ID: gq99a1f

Just finished up Concrete Genie. Currently playing Maquette and a few indie games from the sale. Slay the Spire, Untitled Goose Game and Fell Seal: Arbiters Mark. Also tried the Outriders demo. Seems fun, may grab it down the line.

Next game I'm really waiting for is Returnal. Until then just finishing up backlog and older games and waiting for some games to price drop.

34 : Anonymous2021/03/08 20:29 ID: gq929zf

Besides the freebies picked up Division 2 and MK 11 since they were on sale for cheap and had PS5 patches. Enjoying Division 2. It was worth the sale price. MK 11 got old quick.

I’m playing some of the PS+ collection and I also bought GoT because I don’t think it will receive further PS5 improvements. Right now I’m playing TLoU to get a feel for gaming again and then I plan to play GoT and god of war. Maybe also Uncharted 4 down the line but I’m not sure if I should play the first 3 uncharted games before hand. I’d like to play TLoU2 but I’ll probably wait for a PS5 version since the PS4 version is pretty close to MSRP used and I don’t have any real PS5 games yet.

37 : Anonymous2021/03/08 21:16 ID: gq98pp8

Can't wait to replay FF7R on hard mode and 60fps. The Yuffie dlc looks awesome too.
