Hello fellow nerds! E3 is just right around the corner, and I’m sick of playing the same handful of PS4 games so I’m sharing my top five most anticipated PS4 games for E3. I currently own and play (Not including indie titles or free Plus games) Killzone: Shadow Fall, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, and AC: Black Flag. I have a lot of shooters because I spend most of my game time playing with my friends, but my E3 list here doesn’t include the next stale COD or Battlefield game.
Dragon Age: Inquisition- Well if you’ve listened to any of our awesome Nerds Against the World podcasts, then you’ll know that we love our Bioware games. Inquisition looks absolutely breathtaking and Bioware has never disappointed me in the quality of their games. Lately, I’ve been so disgusted with shooters that I turn off my PS4 and play Dragon Age 2 on my PS3. So bring on the dragons in Inquisition!
The Division- This game has had me excited since last year’s E3. I love shooters (normally) co-op, survival, and RPGs so this game intrigued me by having all of those elements. Sadly, the game was delayed and we haven’t seen a whole lot about it except showing off the beautiful graphics with the new Snowdrop engine.
Far Cry 4- I loved playing Far Cry 3 on PS3 so much that I squealed like a school girl at the announcement of Far Cry 4. I would love for this game to be co-op, but at the very least I hope they bring back the separate co-op missions. All I ask of the co-op missions is to improve the checkpoint system. Playing on veteran difficulty proved frustrating when I would die over half way through the mission, and I got sent back to the beginning of the mission when I thought I hit a checkpoint.
Dying Light- Simply because I am a sucker for zombie games. I love the RE series, Dead Island, Dead Rising, Left for Dead… the list goes on and on. Now give me next gen zombies in an open world environment!
A new Fallout game- While all the other games on my list are confirmed to exist, this game is on my list because I feel hopeful that a next gen Fallout game is coming. Fallout 3 is still one of my favorite games of all time, and I really hope that Bethesda hears my cries! Give me a next gen wasteland!!!
HONORABLE MENTION- Mass Effect 4. I fought a huge internal battle of which game should make the list, but Fallout seemed more pressing. We’ve seen teases that show us ME4 is coming, and Fallout is still wishful thinking at this point. I’d love to see both games at E3 this year.
What are your top five picks?
