Hey everyone. Signed up to this website and forum to get my PS news and join in with discussions, after trying to purge myself from social media sites in favour of forums. Thought it would be cool to post here!

I've joined the PS5 this generation from the Xbone. Managed to get it day one, after a hectic evening trying to pre-order after the price reveal stream (what a mess that was!).

Absolutely loved the console and the fantastic backlog of games. In particular, God of War was a surreal experience. Can't wait to see the stuff Sony produces this generation with the huge leap in hardware.

@NedStarksGhost Welcome to our universe!

I loved God of War as well and can't wait for the sequel. Have you been catching up on some other first party games? What are you playing rn?

@Voltan Thank you, it's great to be here!

@Kidfried Thanks! Same, I started reading up more about Norse Mythology and watching Vikings afterwards, so I am even more excited for Ragnarok now!

I have been, I played through the The Last of Us Part 1 and 2, loved both. I finished both Spider-Man and Miles Morales, phenomenal experiences, the perfect superhero game example in my opinion!

Currently, I am making my way through Ghost of Tsushima. Again, fantastic game. Brilliant characters, voice acting, artwork, combat. Leagues ahead of Assassin's Creed games. Seriously enjoying my time with it!

@NedStarksGhost You're ahead of me with some of these games, even though I've been a PlayStation gamer for so long now. Sounds like you'd probably enjoy the Uncharted series as well, and I wonder what you'd think of Days Gone - one of my favorites, it got mixed reviews, but I think it's free with Plus?

@Kidfried I had a lot of spare time earlier in the year as I went on furlough, so got to playing some games! I will check out Uncharted, it has been on my radar for some time. Days Gone looks interesting, my friend swears it's great. Yep, it's part of the PS Plus Collection on PS5.

What are you playing at the moment?

@NedStarksGhost The PS Plus collection is an absolutely amazing offer for newcomers to the platform.

@NedStarksGhost Welcome aboard! Impressive gaming start to your enormous backlog of PlayStation quality games you have access to now. Yeah, you might get along with the 5 Uncharted games. You can get the first 3 in the Nathan Drake collection and then UC4 and UCLL are separate. They do really need to be played in order for the full effect, so I suggest not skipping the early entries if at all possible, even though (and it’s a point of controversy around here) many consider the first game to be the weakest. Don’t let it deter you if you find it lackluster. I replayed it again last year and still loved it though.

Do you get along with FromSoft stuff? Bloodborne and Demon’s Souls being the exclusives in that arena. And Persona 5 if you fancy a complete change of pace to a JRPG.

The Ratchet & Clank games are really good and although I’ve yet to play the new one, the PS4 reboot is a blast.

Oh and don’t sleep on Death Stranding. One of my favorites from PS4. Might be worth waiting for the Director’s Cut, but man, it’s a very unique experience, so long as you’re open-minded to try something different.

And the crown jewel of Horizon Zero Dawn… just one of the greats as well.

I’m knee deep in Returnal, which is fabulous if you fancy third person kinetic shooting.

I envy your nearly endless supply of options since you’re new to the platform.

What kind of games did you play on Xbox and what are your favorite third party games? Sounds like you have some familiarity with the Ubisoft stuff and Assassins Creed.

@Voltan Definitely, fantastic move from Sony!

@Sorteddan Thank you, looking forward to it!

@Th3solution Hey, thanks for all the info! I will definitley play Uncharted, I don't really mind playing dated games if the story is worth it.

I do like FromSoft, I finished Dark Souls and bough Demon's Souls but am yet to sit down and play through it. What I played of it though, fantastic. I have seen lots of great comments about Bloodborne so will definitely check that out too.

I actually forgot to mention I played Rift Apart, brilliant game again. Insomniac are putting out gold right now! I bought Death Stranding for £10, I will wait for the Director's Cut edition and pay the £10 upgrade fee and give it a try. Hideo has a crazy mind so it will be cool to try that out. Also want to play Horzion and Returnal. Spoilt for choice!

I have played a fair amount of AC, but had lost interest until I was gifted Valhalla for Christmas. I really did enjoy it, even if it was a bit clunky at times. I enjoyed playing Halo on Xbox, but otherwise I used to play third party games or random stuff on Game Pass.

I liked shooters and RPGs, as well as indie titles, my favourite being "Outer Wilds" (not The Outer Worlds). I also loved the first Ori (didn't get round to the second). But overall there hasn't been much to shout about on the Xbox. Very glad I moved platform!

@ NedStarksGhost Welcome aboard. And damn, there's plenty of catching up for you to do as a newcomer to the PlayStation world!

I can't say much more than @Th3solution has and would second Bloodborne if you're into the From games. I personally much preferred the aggressive combat style of the game. The Ratchet and Clank 2016 reboot is also great fun if you liked the latest one and they dropped a PS5 patch earlier this year for 60fps gameplay. And both of those are in the PS+ Collection!

Oh god, not this again

@Thrillho hello and thank you for the info as well, I really do have to try Bloodborne!

And tell me about it, as a big Outer Wilds fan I've learned to clarify right away which one I mean!

@NedStarksGhost Welcome! Hope you enjoy your time here!

You've made a good start, unintentionally joining in with a long standing forum joke!

Hi all, nice to see you here. I have been checking out the three sister sites for some time and decided to make an account and start posting. Generally, I play my video games on PlayStation consoles. I was around to play the PlayStation, but my first console of my own was the PlayStation 2. I do also love Nintendo, particularly, the Switch. I exclusively do handheld gaming with the Switch.

As per my avatar, I love the two recent Doom games (and to a degree, Doom 64 > Doom > Doom 2). However, the game series I enjoy the most are developed by FromSoftware, Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Sekiro, and Demon's Souls. The amount of hours I have put into those is honestly not good. Here's to Elden Ring!
