What experts liked
The 3D model of the food in this game deserves Michelin awards
- Video Game Professionals
It's a beautiful game that reflects its actual gameplay all too well. It's flashy and promising, but it's underwhelming when it could've striven for excellence.
- Worth Playing
Impressive open-world that's equally beautiful and haunting

Final Fantasy XV at its absolute greatest, with all the bells and whistles and improvements made over the game’s pseudo-live lifecycle.

What experts didn't like
Requires Massive 155GB HDD space on PC
- Video Game Professionals
The game suffers from severe frame drops in all modes, especially when trying the Quality options on a PS4 Pro. It looks beautiful, especially with HDR enabled, but it still has enough bugs, oddly muddied textures, and low-res menu items that seemed avoidable
- Worth Playing
Astrals are needlessly difficult to summon

I don’t regret any of the time I’ve spent with Final Fantasy XV. I only wish I could have enjoyed it in its most fully-realized form the first time around. As it stands, my hazy memory of what was once writ in stone is now entangled with the present reality of Final Fantasy XV‘s disorienting narrative revisions. The fragmented nature of its experience and the way it obliges us to continually check back for the full story makes it much harder to revisit, alienating the core audience who purchased the game at launch.

An Overview On Playstation Games

PlayStation games are constantly evolving, drawing larger crowds and critics with each new product. How do you know which one is going to be the best? Let’s take a look at some of the best components of PlayStation, and then hear what the consumers have to say.

Sony is the developer and producer of Playstation, a video gaming console. The original was born in 1994, Playstation 2 arrived in 2000 and Playstation 3 hit the shelves in 2006. The appeal of the original was a faster, clearer and visually-enhanced experience. With the second version, the progression of processing power was greatly advanced, and the model offered USB ports, as well as a modem that gave players access to online gaming. PS3 was a result of competition with Xbox and Wii, and it certainly stepped up the game. With a cell processor, ethernet port, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, extra storage and web browser among other features, PS3 was ready for online gaming at its best. The latest model, Playstation 4, tops them all with access to a personal network account, tournaments and communities, live streaming, share play features and a social group chat area.

Each progression has brought countless games to consumers. Consumers will find old favorites that have been revised and enhanced for PlayStation 4. The old games have been updated with better graphics and more features for players. “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey” is one such game. “Assassin’s Creed” has been around for quite a while and has engrossed countless players with beautiful scenery that imitates the ancient Greek countryside. Players will feel completely immersed with outstanding graphics and reactionary worlds within the game. Find the best of old and new in this fan-favorite.

For an action-packed gaming experience, there are few choices that consumers recommend. “Marvel’s Spider-Man” offers an out-of-this-world, superhero game. Although the superheroes feel a bit worn out, this game brings a refreshing model of interaction that truly captivates the player. Another edge-of-your-seat game is “Red Dead Redemption 2.” This game is set in the country-western style of America. Cowboys battle over land and property in epic saloon gunfights and stand-offs. These two will give you the action battles you want from a good console game.

If you are crazy about post-apocalyptic worlds and their imagined creatures, then “Horizon Zero Dawn” is the game for you. With robotic animals and creative weapons, you’ll find yourself transported to another world in this captivating game of good versus evil.

Don’t limit yourself to just one genre, give them all a try. When friends come over for a fun game night, you’ll have options for everyone’s taste, and you are sure to enjoy all these top picks.
