How can it not live up to expectations? Just look at these new screenshots for The Last Guardian; in a period where Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare have all released in the span of a couple of weeks, it just looks so different. That's not a slight against any of those excellent first-person shooters by the way, it's just a reminder that variety is the spice of life.
And Fumito Ueda's opus genuinely does look so… Unique. Sony's been keen to keep spoilers relating to this game to an absolute minimum, so we're still seeing the same locations and characters as before. But do any of you really believe that this is going to disappoint? The game design may end up feeling like it's been pulled out of the PlayStation 2 era, but it's going to be gorgeous.
