I'd say it's the best looking game I've ever played!.....I'm yet to play Horizon before anyone pounds me!
God of War! *pound pound*

Yeah God of War is amazing and looks unreal!......I couldn't say which looks better, what I loved about Uncharted 4 was all the different types of scenery and locations.

I'd so they're both on par?.....amazingly impressive visuals and details!

In this thread everyone forgets about The Order 1886...


Looks significantly better than God of War, Uncharted, and Horizon.

I forget nothing, I beat The Order, graphics are nowhere near the level of God of War or Uncharted imo.

One of the greatest shames of this generation IMO is that we will not be getting a sequel to The Order.

I would buy it day 275 like I did last time when it was $20. It was worth the $ at that price, but I probably would've regretted paying anything more. It was nowhere as bad as some made it out to be.

Its rendering techniques were great, but it was extremely limited in scope, so i wasn't as impressed as otherwise would be. From a tech standpoint Uncharted edges out GOW, imo, but GOW is the better game.

I enjoyed The Order, too, although only as Mr X said, later, at $20. By that time I'd heard all the negative press, so I could go in without much expectation. Graphics were impressive, but gameplay was pretty average. It was a competent cover shooter, but there are so many of those out there, it didn't stand out. Characters and story left no impression. Setting was interesting, but paths were very linear.

I still remember three action scenes from it -- being on the outside of the blimp, fighting people from the castle wall with that large weapon (some type of cannon), and the fight near the end, where they throw all the baddies at you in close quarters. I remember the first two because they were fun. I remember the last one because it sucked. "Hey, it's the end of the game, let's throw everything at him in a small room. That will be fun." No, it won't.

They really could build upon the first game and make the mechanics less janky and it'd be a hit IMO, I'd buy it!

I had a little PS4 scare earlier. Some dipstick in Great Britain hacked my PS account.
Everyone should do the two-step verification sign-in.

I’m glad I didn’t have any credit card associated with my account.

What did you do wrong in order for so much gaming related bad luck to come your way?

A poll on Resetera had God of War and Horizon roughly tied for #1, with Horizon slightly ahead, fwiw. Uncharted was way back in third. Detroit is a looker, too, but it hadn't been released at the time of the poll, so it didn't get many votes.

That's good, I've got Horizon but haven't started it yet!.....I'm really looking forward to it (as well as detroit/spiderman) this year and it's reassuring to hear the graphics are still up there with the best!

We’ll never thought I’d say this but I’m the proud new owner of a ps4 pro. Found a deal that was too good to pass up. Never owned a Playstation before, any tips or game recommendations? As of now I know I want God of War, and I’ve purchased:

Killzone
The Order
Until Dawn
Horizon
Uncharted Collection
Uncharted 4
Last of Us Remastered
Infamous SS

Ps store has some really cheap games right now!

Glad to hear you picked one up.

I've asterisked the best ones on your list. Other games to consider would be Ratchet and Clank, Yakuza 0, The Last Guardian, Nioh, Nier Automata (probably better to wait for Xbox version), Gravity Rush remastered, and Detroit. I don't know if you would enjoy any of them, because some are kind of niche, but those are some other good exclusives.

The Uncharted collection was where I started as a PS 4 newbie and I thought it was great. Early games are obviously a little dated but still tons of fun. It made me into the Naughty Dog fan that I've always been but just didn't know yet. :)

My starter games...will trade or exchange them as a finish for others like horizons, until Dawn, and God of War. Then spider-man it up. Maybe hold onto it for awhile for single player exclusives and trade it in for next xbox.

Of all those, Until Dawn would be my go to one. Cheesy 80's style interactive movie/game. It was fun.

Bloodhound is good. You'll enjoy that. Lots of tracking scents.
