@Gemuarto To be fair, Rogue Legacy is there because of @get2sammyb, believe it or not. I reviewed it and gave it an 8/10, and I personally don't think it should be in the top 20!

Much like Sammy doesn't think Samurai Warriors 4 should be, so we had to agree to disagree on some of the finer points...

I have the Fallout 3, Oblivion, and Skyrim guides, but to be honest, I never really used them while playing. I think I just liked the novelty of them; these are huge games and having a big book that contains all of their information is cool.

@SouthTippBass Popularity does not make a good game. If it did, this list would feature every CoD game on PS4. That said, Destiny isn't even a bad game - I happen to quite like it, but pretending it has no glaring flaws is to live in denial.

It was considered for the list along with many others, but when you begin to factor in its terribly overpriced, almost mandatory DLC and its tedious progression system that Bungie clearly regrets to this day, we couldn't find the right reasons to put it on the list.

I think at its core, Destiny gets it right. The gunplay is brilliant, and playing with a good group of friends is always fun, but I'd still argue that every other game on this list is more cohesive and well realised.

It's a better model for sure, rather than skinning us alive for packs of useless content. That said, I certainly don't want base games to become smaller as a result, with developers dishing out the rest later. The backlash to the new Hitman is proof of a concept gone too far, for example.

@BigDaddyT0101 Thanks! And yeah, I can definitely see your point. I actually quite like your idea of including the score of the original game, for reference. We're always open to feedback!

@BigDaddyT0101 I can't speak for @get2sammyb, but I think price is key here. Journey is cross-buy, so even if you have owned it, it's worth playing again because it's free. On the other hand, GoW3 is a full price game with no cross-buy option or even a discount.

ShogunRok commented on The Witcher 3 PS4 Patch 1.07 Apparently Damage...:

@Matroska I think the keyword there is 'needs', though. I don't think Wild Hunt has 'needed' a lot of the fixes that it's received. They've improved it, sure, but it wasn't exactly a broken mess when it launched - at least on PS4. In fact, I'd still argue that it's been a superb game from day one, and it's only getting better.

That said, I think technical issues are all but expected from open world titles these days, which is undeniably a sad state of affairs. But how many other developers would have gone to the lengths that CD Proket has to improve the game? I certainly couldn't see the likes of Ubisoft going beyond fixing anything but the game's most basic technical flaws, for example.
