    PS4 Games up to the mark yet?

    PS4 Games up to the mark yet? 10th Apr 15 at 1:31 AM
    When the PS4 was launched, the consensus was that there wasn't a game around which was really worthy of it. Does anyone think that this situation has changed a year or two down the line?

    I have a PS4. I too realised that for several years there really was nothing new with the new gen console games. Everything was the same, including the graphics. However, I think the PS4 has reached the point in its life where it's really upping its quality. The producers of consoles really stagger their technology, milking a console for six years, and then releasing a slightly improved console. Within each console there is a staggering too. And for the last 3 years the PS4 has done this a lot. The CoDs were the same, and the lego, fallout etc. I was really annoyed. But now, Uncharted 4, Resident Evil Biohazard, Horizon Zero Dawn, (I liked The Division), and other awesome games are available. It may just be I'm getting older and have seen everything. But certainly by the end of next year I think the PS4 will have a load of good and affordable games. (Crash Bandicoot!)

    Bought a ps4 slim last week- Mass Effect Andromeda is fun though slowly learning.

    COD Infintive War demo is excellent, might be my next game purchase.

    Lots of demo's-Ive seen an improvement with ps slim, enjoying my recent purchase.

    How good are you at games? Do you like a challenge? If so you may like killzone shadow fall. It is very tough. You would get it very cheap second hand. Don't buy if you aren't very good at games though. I am rubbish and struggled massively. I only finished it due to some sort of miracle.
    Unless you play multiplayer a game to avoid is battlefield 1. The campaign is extremely short and the difficulty is up and down. It has no proper story either.

    Maybe I should re visit game store to search for some bargains, though I takit 'platinmum'games have gone a few years.

    Did you play the previous game on PS3? If not that is worth considering for the future as it's available remastered on PS4. It's simply called tomb raider definitive edition.

There's a bit with a helicopter shooting at you and you can't beat it shooting at it directly. You have to wait for your buddies to fire a fireball in the air above the helicopter. Then you shoot the fireball which showers the helicopter. You do it a few times I think before it goes down.
    I usually watch video walkthroughs on YouTube to see how other people do it whenever I get stuck in a game.
