Get over here! Netherrealm Studios creative director and Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon shares his top PS4 picks.
Discover The Creators is a PlayStation Store curation program in which we’ve asked some of the biggest names in the biz to pick their favorite PS4 games in order to help your find your next game to play.
One of the most amazing things about games on the PS4 is the variety of experiences available. From intense shooters that challenge the hardcore players to deep rich storytelling titles that give a completely different feeling of immersion, these are some of my favorite titles that have been released so far.
Batman: Arkham VR
I don’t think there is an experience anywhere (movies, TV, comics) that immerses you deeper into the Batman universe more than Batman: Arkham VR. After playing for a while you really do forget you are in a VR simulation and find yourself living in this amazing world that Rocksteady built. I’m not exaggerating when I say you literally become Batman.
What Remains of Edith Finch
Amazing story telling game experience. Such a refreshing, stylized and creepy (in a good way) presentation. I loved the way the story was broken up into the different “rooms” and how the different family member’s stories linked together. This game was the winner of the “Best Narrative” award at The Game Awards for a reason.
This game is quite simply one of the best arguments that exist for video games being an artform. Describing this game requires so many words: Beautiful, dark, disturbing, eerie, and dreamlike only begin to scratch the surface. On top of the amazing emotional visual presentation are fantastic game mechanics and audio score making this game an absolute masterpiece.
Resident Evil 7
For someone who hasn’t played as much of the previous Resident Evil games, you can only imagine the emotional reactions this game got out of me. I was not prepared for this. Add in PS VR support and you have one of the most heart-poundingly intense (perhaps too?) experiences in entertainment. Anyone doubting VR needs to play this.
Yes, I know…..this game has been on almost everyone’s favorite lists for more than a year and a half now, but that’s my point. Not only has this title taken the gaming world by storm, but it has managed to hold on and dominate. That kind of staying power deserves recognition. Anyone who hasn’t tried this game needs to see what all the hype is about.
Fantastic return to its classic (frenetic, fast, crazy) form. I just love the pacing of this shooter. The team who made this game are obviously fans of the original and have delivered a game that captures its intensity with amazing updated graphics showcasing the PS4.
