I love the Last of Us!

I'd have to say Life is Strange for sure - gets me every time!

Life is Strange is a great game I played the first game and before the storm still need to get around to playing the other ones.

You know me bud, Life Is Strange all the way

I quite like the first Life is Strange. Before the Storm didn't really add too much to the original story but maybe it's because I love Max more than Chloe

Either or but both had me in tears :P

Bae or Bay? Why'd they have to make us choose

Final Fantasy VII is good but I think I really had to think about the main themes and subtext of the story. Same with Final Fantasy XII just because it carried like an old English style of writing. Tough decision on what would be my favourite story - I would like Persona 3 or 5 as I really like the setting but I wouldn't say that the story was necessarily the deepest or made me think after I finished the game. Team Ico games - like Ico and Shadow of the Colossus I really like in terms of their vagueness and mix of gameplay and story

Life is Strange and Before the Storm both probably one of my favorites. Haven't played True Colors yet, not really interested in it from the footage I've seen of it.

RedDead Redemption 2 is probably next on my list, the attention to detail in any game I've ever played and the story is one of the best..

ZeroDawn is one I know people are split on, people either hate it or they love it but personally it's one of the few games that have kept my attention long enough to complete the game without being distracted by others in between. Yay adhd..

Final Fantasy ❤️

There are many different games in the franchise now but what makes them all "Final Fantasy" is the story. 7 was the first one I played so it'll always have a special place in my heart. Love 8, 10 and 12 as well. But if I put nostalgia aside, probably my favourite one is 16.

Nice to meet another Final Fantasy Fan! I wish I could play 16 but as of yet I don't own a PS5

90% of the things I post here is about Final Fantasy XD Nice to meet you as well!

I usually ended up buying a new PS because a new FF game came out :D It was the same with PS5, bought it to play 16 and no regrets. Hopefully there will be a PC release and more people will be able to play it. Rebirth is also very good, I'm still fairly early into the game as didn't have much time to play. And I also play 14.

Square Enix really need to sort out their pc strategy. 1 year+ release delays, then they make them a 1 year exclusive to the epic game store as well (ff7 remake). They seem to do everything possible to make their games sales flops on pc.

It will probably be an unpopular opinion, but I had no problems with games being PS exclusive. There are games which are Xbox exclusive (maybe not that much these days with the game pass, not sure about that) and a LOT of games are PC exclusive. Many people don't have a gaming PC these days as it's a lot cheaper to buy a console than a high-end PC. I was always a PC gamer, yet kept buying PS just to play FF, and then started playing other console games too.

Don't get me wrong, I don't want the games to stay PS exclusive, because I'ld love for more people to be able to play these games, but whenever the topic of console exclusive games comes up, everything is loud from PC gamers crying they can't afford a console which costs less than the GPU they just bought, so PS games must be available for them right now, but you don't really hear console players complaining they want to play a PC exclusive game.

What I don't get about PC releases is that some games you buy directly from the publisher, then others are on Steam, Epic Store, Game Pass? I think it's too complicated. I didn't even knew for a long time that these services existed. I got Steam because friends got me to play something which was released there and then I thought oh ok this is how you buy PC games now, cool. Sadly I also made the mistake of buying FFXIV on Steam and it causes me a lot of trouble, would love to go to the pure PC version from SE but I can't, because once you bought it via Steam you are stuck with it.

So I feel like SE would be doing a lot better with PC releases if they kept their games 1 year PS exclusive (if I remember correctly this was a deal they had with Sony/PS) and then release a PC version themselves and leave out Steam, Epic Store and all that crap.

Yeah I know what you mean. It's more of a me thing this in terms of I don't really have a fancy tv living room setup anymore, just a "small" 32 inch cheap 1080p screen. In not keen on big screens taking over an entire living/sitting room anymore.

I used to have my pc and all consoles, but now I game in my office room instead, it seemed a bit pointless buying and playing things on the lower spec consoles when my pc is sitting there. That and all the clutter and duplication of hardware having to have so many devices hooked up to my monitor.

I am going to have to get one for GTA 6 though. Might get a cheap 2nd hand one and then sell it back on again once it comes out on pc eventually.

At this point I am pretty much just going to wait until the ps5 pro gets launched and then I will get that.

Horizon Zero dawn. Probably the only game I've ever completed every possible side quest and collectable to get every little bit of the story. Loved the whole concept of the story and the presentation of it from start to finish.
