First post of any kind, so hello. Also I'm 100% positive Persona 5 has been recommended, so here I am recommending it one more time.

Also Yakuza 0 is phenomenal. Great entry point if you haven't played any previous Yakuza entries (like I didn't).

@DarthThePyro Holding off on Persona 5 for....obvious reasons.

@kyleforrester87 Axiom Verge is already owned. Twice. XD

Updated my games collection btw. Makes it easier. Not comprehensive, but what I recall from memory right now.

@Knuckles-Fajita Ever considered Ni no Kuni 2, Hollow Knight or Tearaway Unfolded?

Praise the Sun, and Mario too.

@Knuckles-Fajita Well, in looking over your list, I’m not entirely confident in my recommendations, but one game I just feel everyone should play is Shadow of the Colossus, and the PS4 version is the best, most polished iteration. It looks like you’re not much into the open world fantasy setting, but don’t let that scare you off. The game is more contemplative and chill. It’s not about chasing tons of map markers and doing meaningless side quests like many open world games can be. The story is simple, but powerful, imo. And it doesn’t overstay it’s welcome.
Also will put in a rec for NieR Automata. Not quite as transcendent a game as SotC , but is probably more fun and exciting to play and definitely more fast-paced combat. Also so incredibly innovative in the approach and presentation. Just a fantastic experience if you want some action and a story that will keep you pondering things for days.
It appears you like platforming, so maybe try Inside for some 2D simple platforming/ puzzle gameplay with also a meaningful story.

And if you don’t like good stories that make you ponder in your games, then ignore everything I’ve said. Lol. But each of those games has first and foremost fun and interesting gameplay.

@Knuckles-Fajita If something is also on the Switch, is that your preferred platform? I'll give another shout for Nier Automata! It's brilliant.

Did you enjoy Kingdom Hearts? If so maybe 2.8?

Dark Chronicle (Dark Cloud 2) is a gem.

@mookysam If its on Switch I get it tgere since...ya know....job and all that XD

@Th3solution I should akso add Far Cry 4 to the list XD

Yeah if you give me just a fantasy setting my brain switches off. Its why I can play XCX but not XC2. One is more scifi and the other is pure fantasy.

Also why Ill never play Skyrim!

SOTC has been on my watchlist but I alsk know between battles there is a fat load of nothing so im not sure that will hold my interest...

@Octane I did enjoy God of War 3. Much like I enjoyed Metal Gear Rising and Bayonetta.

But the new one is so different, hence my hesitation...

@andreoni79 Hollow Knight on Switch, Ni No Kuni...I got deterred from by someknes honest opinion.

@Knuckles-Fajita So I'll just be over here, chanting "Hitman 2, Hitman 2, Hitman 2" whilst banging my fists on the desk and stamping my feet...

...but yeah, hearing a lot of support for NieR, so that might be more your speed.

@Knuckles-Fajita Lol. Yeah, although every now and again I love a good Ubisoft tower game with a large map and a bunch of quest markers to chase (Horizon Zero Dawn for example), I’ve never been able to garner enough interest to play a single Far Cry game, even if it is the granddaddy of the genre. Just doesn’t interest me either.

And yes, I’m positive you’d hate Skyrim if you dislike fantasy. Personally I thought it was great. But very heavy on the knights, wizards, castles, and dragons.

As far as SotC, there is a lot of open space with “nothing to do” but in my mind it was fun just exploring and the world is beautiful. There are a few minor collectibles (fruit in trees and lizards) that could pass the time between as you travel to the Colossi battles. But mostly it’s just observing and exploring a cool world for a few minutes until you can find that next boss. The lack of random battles is somewhat refreshing in a way, after playing the typical JRPGs and such. In the present gaming world where we have Red Dead Redemption 2 where after playing 30 hours, I feel like 15 of those hours have been on horseback getting from point A to point B, it’s nothing that onerous. The whole game of SotC will be done in 15 hrs, so it’s just enough to feel nice being in that beautiful world.
But if it doesn’t interest you then you still may hate it, so I’ll not oversell it as a surefire hit. Not everyone adores the game as much as I do.

SOTC isn't big by modern day standards. You can probably traverse the map in a minute or so. The amount of time you spend in between bosses are really up to you. But it works in SOTC, and I don't feel that numerous NPCs, enemies or a dozen collectibles would've made the game any better.

@kyleforrester87 @Octane @Th3solution @RogerRoger

I dont know why I dislike fantasy settings. I guess I just find them uninteresting. Suppose I can only see a D&D clone so many times.

Nier and SOTC it is then. Merci.

I noticed at US Gamestop Kingdom come Deliverance is $20 for those interested. I was hoping for a psn sale since I have most of my extra money tied up in psn credit, but this sale is very tempting.

@Knuckles-Fajita Awesome. Be sure to post your experiences and impressions when/if you get around to playing. Especially NieR is a game that I found I enjoyed more by being able to talk about it and the forum thread on the game was part of the enjoyment.

@Knuckles-Fajita You're not alone; I can't stand fantasy. I've only recently relented to years of urging from a friend to try playing Dragon Age, and only then it was a "should the time become available to look for it cheap in the next couple years" admission.

Enjoy your choices!

Medieval fantasy and I don't get on, either. I've yet to find a major fantasy novel series that I can enjoy (Game of Thrones, Wheel of Time, Lord of the Rings, etc. all bored me to death). In terms of gaming, I go out of my way to avoid games with those sorts of settings. I enjoy Zelda games, but those are really their own sort of thing. The most medieval fantasy-like Zelda game on an aesthetic level was Twilight Princess, and, while I mostly enjoyed that game, I made no secret of the fact that I hated it aesthetically.

I've played Skyrim, and it was OK, but I didn't enjoy exploring its world. Partially because the game is janky as heck. Also partially because it's just ugly and medieval.

It's also a big reason I've avoided playing The Witcher series.
