  1. My favorites that base on my recent replay action games are (not in order):
    -DMC Definitive Ed.
    -DMC V S.E
    -FF7 remake (Revisit all boss fight)
    -Nioh (Hvnt play nioh 2 yet)
    -Fatal Frame 5
    -Stranger Paradise
    -Horizon FW

  2. PS5 just does not have the exclusive games and system sellers that the PS4 had as shown by your own list. How many on here a PS5 exclusive?. Have a PS4 pro with the premium games service what games on this list sell the PS5? The PS5 is looking like a real failure imo

  3. I guess my game will not come into existing for a long time. Cant even find a game where you can recruit npc's. Just fight fight fight and walk walk walk. I want more management, control, building, settlement, recruiting in a game something like conan exiles but 10x better.

  4. Watching this made me realize how much I’ve missed the PlayStation Access list videos. I know it’s not always easy, and there are other things going on too, but it’s great to see one again.
