I'm actually super hyper for RE8, anything Ratchet and Clank, and to be honest Demons' Souls remastered will probably be the time I finally end up buying into it. I won't end up with a PS5 for another few years at least, as I still have a massive back catalogue on the 4, but it'll be nice to have a decent library built including these three games for me.

RE8 looks interesting, I'm stoked for Solar Ash and Demon's Souls. Kena - Bridge of Spirit looks cool, and Horizon 2 looks amazing. The premise of Deathloop piqued my curiousity too. I tried getting into Spiderman (2018) but from the little I played I just couldn't. So even though I still think it looks cool, based on my disinterest in it while I played it, I don't think Spiderman: Miles Morales is something I care about, I think it looked interesting though.

Pretty solid presentation overall.
I can agree. The presentation was pretty solid. Something for everyone. Though in my opinion there was no big hitter. No console selling game, like BotW was for the Switch. I hope Sony still has one hidden away and will announce it soon. If not, it could hurt them come launch day.

Here's my opinion on the games.


GTA5 Enhanced - GTA 5 needs to die. GTA 6 can't come fast enough.
Spiderman - Miles Morals - Does nothing for me. The PS4 game, looked way batter gameplay wise and in so many other ways better. That PS4game with the SSD in the PS5 would be great.
Gran Turismo 7 - Looked good. Not my thing but first person racing fans will really like it.
Rachet and Clank - Rift Apart - Has very big shoes to fill. I'm hyped but we shall see if it's really as good as it could be.
Project Athia - Feels very alpha. When we have more info we'll know what this game really is.
Stray - No idea what this is really about but I'm very interested. I can't wait to hear more about this. I'm hyped.
Returnal - Pass on this. Looks very average from what I saw.
Sackboy - A Big Adventure - Little Big Planet fans might like this, but it's no 3D Mario game. I get that Sony is looking towards it's 2nd party studios to try and capture the more Nintendo like crowd. I see this as the game people will get along side the other game they really want. This will sell but it will not sell consoles.
Destruction All Stars - Honestly it looked really terrible. A poor man's destruction derby.
Kena - Bridge of Spirits - This might actually be good. I think we need to see more to know if it will be good as I'm on the fence about it. Hopefully it'll turn into something people want to buy.
Goodbye Volcano High - Feels to me like a Life is Strange game with furries. Small target audience for this one.
Oddworld - Soulstorm - Looks amazing with the same core Oddworld gameplay. The fans will love it. But the fanbase is pretty small. Hope it sells well.
Ghostwire Tokyo - This did noting for me but a lot of others seemed to like it. It looked alright though. I think it'll sell as a 2nd game peopel buy with the main game they want. It'll sell, but not sell consoles.
Jett - The Far Shore - Looked very average. Need more time in the oven then show that new build to us.
Godfall - Looked very free to play. I could be wrong but that's the impression I got from it from this trailer.
Solar Ash - This didn't look too bad. One of the better indie games shown today.
Hitman 3 - This seriously could help sell consoles. Not on it's own but with whatever big game Sony has for launch. A great reveal all round.
Astro’s Playroom - Poor mans 3D Mario game. Really looked very average all round.
Little Devil Inside - Looked very average to me but I feel we need more info about this game to know really how good it could be.
NBA 2K21 - Is this a game about basketball or a casino simulator? Until this question is answered we will not know how good this could be or could not be.
Bugsnax - I think as a budget title this could find some success. But it'll flop at full price.
Demon’s Souls - Huge reveal. Should be amazing. However we'll need a lot more details and footage of the game before we're totally sold on it.
Deathloop - That looked terrible to me. It felt like an indie studio trying their best but lacking the skill to make something that's really polished and worth my money.
Resident Evil 8 - RE was never my thing and even if it was this trailer would not sell me on the game. It was just a name reveal trailer really, so not much more to say than, when more info is shared, we'll know more.
Pragmata - Looks pretty good. Though we need more info about it. I liked what I saw though.
Horizon 2 - Forbidden West - Graphical tech demo V2.0 ??? The first game looked amazing but as a game, it was average at best and garbage at worst . . . I know some people disagree but that's what I felt from it when I played it. This sequel needs more than just good graphics to be a good game. Will this sequel be a good game or just pretty visuals only like the first game? I guess only time will tell.

I think it keeps not dying because it keeps printing $$$ for rockstar. it is the highest grossing individual media OF ALL TIME, EVER, and consistently top grossing year after year - and it came out in 2013! If you made just under a billion dollars of literal profit off of a videogame every year, I think you'd be foolish to switch up that formula. GTA6 will, I'm sure, be outstanding but I wouldn't anticipate it releasing until 5 stops printing money. Which, considering the install base of 5 at this point, might be soon - if you already have GTA5 and have played it to death, odds are pretty good you won't be throwing money at a remaster.

You're right that there was nothing as monumental as BotW was for the Switch launch but the variety of games shown here is enough for the PS5's first year. Also, if there's one game I feel people may be sleeping on, it's Horizon 2. I remember back to Guerrilla's other major franchise, Killzone, and there was a major leap in quality from Killzone 1 to 2.

I've looked over it a few more times now and gotta say it's grown on me, I wasn't initially very excited but there are some gems here for sure. I'm WAY into Solar Ash, I think Kena: Bridge of Spirits can become fantastic, and Project Athia was my favorite of the show, that looks extremely promising for me.

I'm so happy we're getting a NEW Ratchet and Clank game that is full length! Love that series, and I wish it'd get full games more often, but at least it's still alive... *cough*Sly Cooper*cough*

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart was the highlight for me. That's my favourite series of platform games (which in turn is my favourite genre of video games) and my favourite non-Nintendo series. It's been way too long since we had a new game, which is a shame because the last two games (not the ps4 reimagining, I have yet to play it) are gold mines, and there really aren't any bad games spin offs aside. I know for most people, this series isn't a console seller, but for me it just might be. The graphics are beautiful and SHINY CLANK!!

I was also very intrigued by the new Spider-Man, the Sackboy game (Little Big Planet was an adorable and fun little game that I'm glad to see isn't forgotten) and Horizon Forbidden West.

Overall, the presentation was solid. No real heavy hitters for most people, but a decent lineup as a whole.

No real heavy hitters for most people,
Are you crazy?? Ratchet and Clank, Demon's Souls Remake, Hitman 3, Spiderman, Horizon sequel, and you're telling me that there's no heavy hitters? Come on, man! :p I'm really looking forward to the new Ratchet as well. I just finished playing through Deadlocked so the timing of the announcement was perfect for me.

Looks like I'll be buying a next gen console after all. I was really surprised at how many games they had to show right away. I had low expectations but I was pleasantly proven wrong. I love the Souls series, and Demon's Souls is the only one I haven't played so I'm stoked that I'll get to play it with an active playerbase. Hitman 2016 and its sequel/second season are two of the best games of this gen, and instantly became two of my favorite games. Obviously part 3 was coming, but it's nice to have a date. Looks like IO made enough from part 2 that they can have well-made cutscenes again. I'll be playing this one on PC, but I'll give Sony credit for announcing it in their presentation.

It feels like there's already more games announced for PS5 that interest me than there have been throughout the entire PS4/XBO/Switch era.
