PS4 Boring ?

Anyone else a little bit bored with PS4?

I don't know if it's me but just finding this gen a little Meh !

I've gone back to playing my ps2 and 1 and graphics wise it's assssss but the gameplay is amazing.

I'm playing the original Tomb Raider at the moment and have just done a level I was stuck on for three days. Some part of me was like fack this but I just kept on going and felt such a level of nostalgia I felt 17 again.

I'm not saying PS4 is shat or anything because there have been some amazing games but they just seem nice to look at but over no real enjoyment. I bought Spiderman was fun for about two days but it's just the same thing repeated same as Red Dead 2 .

Think I'll have a break from it for a while but i am intrested in other people's opinion if they feel the same.

Eddie Hitler out.

There’s a lot of good indie games about at the minute on the current platforms. I don’t think it’s been anywhere near as good for games in general as previous ones though, a few gems aside.

The problem is, If you have been gaming for a while. there is little that is new. All games are based around familiar patterns. So games from the past are essentially games of the future, with better graphics.

You mention Tomb Raider and have fond memories of the past, and you are enjoying reliving those. I work at a school and can guarantee, kids with no ties to the past will be drawn to the newer shinier version.

This is why I'm drawn to VR, It is something different., it offers something new, and for me it's potential going forward is huge.

This gen has been pretty good (PS4 at least) but you probably need to be a less seasoned gamer to truly appreciate it.

like Fifa
like the last of us
like the walking dead
like UFC (which is dogshat but I can't not buy it)

Yeah I'm pretty hard-core , I own about 220 ps1 games and about 50 ps2 games.

I think whats being discussed above. We are lacking any really wow moments because we have seen them all. GTA V is amazing and when you sit on the mountain and see the vista its cool.......but then you remember you done it in GTA 3 from somewhere and that this is just a prettier version. The new Tomb Raider is amazing but you know what really wowed you was when you fought that T rex for the first time in the original Lara Craft outing.

So its not that its boring per se just that there arent really stand out moments anymore.....or far fewer to the time when everything was new

Currently playing Alice: Madness Returns on PS3 and FF8 also on PS3. FF8 is obviously a long, long game but being able to dip in and out is a benefit and in the 6 weeks or so since I started am around the 70 hour mark.

PS4 I have games that I've started such as Detroit and Spiderman but knowing how vast they are I want to set aside time properly. My lad is playing No Man's Sky and also want to give that a proper go but same reasons/issues as the other games mentioned.

Excited for Death Stranding which will be a Christmas buy then FFVII remake in March. Tempted to buy PES but then wouldn't play anything else for ages.

I could never get with FFVIII. Loved VII & IX so it's a mystery how they managed to make 8 such a dud.
Didn't like the story, characters or mechanics. The draw & junction thing was so tedious and whilst level scaling is a neat idea, it was so severe it made levelling up a negative thing for your characters.
Most battles were me just using my guardian force and wiping the floor with enemies, until the point I got utterly pummelled by the T-Rex and quit.

Yes, before I bought PS4 I knew I'd be waiting for RDR2 (amazing game) and TLOU Part 2, but the biggest surprises have been remakes from other consoles

Plus Sony shot themselves in the foot by requiring PS+ to play online, could've killed Xbox dead
