One of the biggest issues surrounding the launch of the next-generation of consoles wasn’t specs or looks (at least, not on the PS4’s side), but rather the games. The games just weren’t there. Sure, FIFA 14 was as fun as FIFA always is, and Killzone was there to show off what Sony’s newest beauty could do, but earlier that year we’d had titles like The Last of Us and GTA V release, which really allowed gamers to compare between the next-gen library, and that of their PS3. In short, they were not impressed, and rightly so.
However, the period of lackluster games is coming to a close. Arguably, this has already happened with the release of Destiny, but people may have something to say about that (me included). In the next few months, though, there’s a little something for everyone: sports fans have FIFA 15; people of a shooter-orientation have had Destiny, and will be getting Battlefield: Hardline, Far Cry 4 and CoD: Advanced Warfare very soon; and those keen action-adventurers out there have Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, AC: Unity and GTA V coming up very soon, as well as Uncharted 4 on the horizon.
So, those of you out there complaining about a lack of games, you can silence yourselves from 26th September… I’d mark it in my diary, if I was you.
