Sony came out swinging this week during E3, and they announced a bunch of things that I’m super excited for, like new Sony VR titles, DLC for great games like Horizon: Zero Dawn, and many more exciting things. Watching the conference, I was fascinating to watch as the stage adjusted to what Sony was presenting. There was an instance where actors dressed as zombies hung upside down from the ceiling as gameplay for Days Gone ( a gritty post-apocalyptic zombie game ), so that was pretty cool. Before I get into the five things I loved about the conference, you must know that this list is primarily for the ages of 16 years and higher. There will be a Nintendo version of this list to fulfill your family gaming needs.
1. Uncharted: Lost Legacy: The trailer for this game has me REALLY excited about the direction Uncharted is going in. My girlfriend of three years and I have played the entire series together, and it’s a very easy game to pick up if you’re new to the series or play-style. Nadine Ross and Chloe Frazier are the protagonists of the game, and they’re two of the most kickass women in recent gaming and veterans of the series, so it’ll be cool to see what adventures they endure. Furthermore, the game will only be $40! That’s a steal.
2. Shadow of the Colossus is getting a remake for PS4: Shadow of the Colossus is one of the greatest games of all time, arguably the best game to release for the PS2 all the way back in 2005. The game will release in 2018, and I’ll be sure to pick it up.
3. Call of Duty: World War II: This is the first Call of Duty I’ve been excited about in years. I grew up playing Call of Duty, in fact, I’ve thoroughly played seven different titles in the series, and I loved playing them with friends. I like that Activision has finally begun to listen to the many of us that have wanted CoD to return to their classic “boots on the ground” playstyle instead of the wacky playstyle that consists of soldiers spontaneously rocket-thrusting everywhere. So, kudos to you, Activision.
4. God of War’s gameplay trailer: God of War is another series I have grown to love that has previously followed Greek mythology but will now be venturing into Norse mythology which is a really exciting direction for the series. This installment also follows Kratos and his son on adventure seemingly unlike any other in the series as Kratos trains his son how to become a warrior. As I said before, this game definitely isn’t for kids, but if you’re an adult, you’ll get a huge kick out of the series. God of War is a game that doesn’t leave the memory.
5. Spider-man is swinging his way to the PS4: The new Spider-man game, set for release in 2018 looks incredible! The gameplay looks like it offers the player a wide variety of options to go about crime-fighting. Based on what I’ve seen so far, I’d say this game is safe for anyone ages 10 and up, and is easily one of the best games announced at E3 this year.
