We have enjoyed another year of PlayStation Plus. For $45, we received nearly $300 in games, $297 from how I did the math. Plus Call of Duty WWII and Just Cause 4 special vanilla editions.
Thanks to Finder for listing all of the titles :
. . .
Uncharted : The Nathan Drake Collection
Walker was obsessed with Goat Simulator for so long and I got to finally play Uncharted 3, a perfect month.
Firewall Zero Hour
FZH is strictly a VR title, so I didn’t get to play it. Sims 4, I was a tad obsessed with for two weeks and I got a few hours into the first Bioshock game. Not a bad month.
Shadow of the Colossus
I really enjoyed Sonic Forces and I can see myself getting back into it once I’m craving some Sonic Action. I killed two of the Colossi and thought I experienced enough of the game.
Uncharted 4 : A Thief’s End
DiRT Rally 2.0
I forget how unforgiving Uncharted games are, and I got to Chapter 10 or 11 and died in a middle of a gun fight and was reset to a way earlier segment and I sort of was just done with the game after that. Same thing happened with my attempt at playing the first Uncharted game.
DiRT Rally, I played for a few nights and earned maybe five trophies and experienced enough of the game. It was me, not the month.
Cities : Skylines
Farming Simulator 19
Oooof, to this month! Arguably the worst month for Plus this year. I did not take to Cities : Skylines and I enjoyed a smaller farming game more than the bigger budget Farming Simulator 19. A month not for me.
Call of Duty : WWII
Star Wars Battlefront 2
I’m not the biggest first person shooter guy, but I enjoyed both of these titles. Probably more Star Wars than CoD, as that’s where my interests lean. I should play more Star Wars Battlefront 2.
Rise of the Tomb Raider : 20 Year Celebration
My favorite month of Plus! I fell in love hard with RotTR, sparking me buying the films and two games (the 2013 game and Go). Eric, I earned the Platinum with and finished four playthroughs to complete. NBA 2k20 was enjoyable enough. I got my character to the Suns and like 2k19, that felt enough for me. I really wish there was a Prelude like 2k19 had, as it just had a nice introductory feel to it.
Fall Guys : Ultimate Knockout
Call of Duty : Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered
I was obsessed with Season One of Fall Guys, and then Season Two happened, and I did not take to the new season and playing for both me and Walker Dennis, sort of drained the enjoyment from the game. Season Three looks fun, but I keep resisting going back to the game. August is also when Marvel invaded Fortnite and sort of changed my gaming habits.
Street Fighter V
PUBG : PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
Street Fighter V, I pretty much just wanted Guile and all of the outfits I could unlock, without paying for anything, and that felt good to accomplish. I liked how PUBG was a more realistic looking Fortnite, but I just enjoy Fortnite more.
Need for Speed : Payback
I did not get that far into Need for Speed : Payback, I had to drop the difficulty as I’m not that good at racing games. Vampyr, I probably could go back to and get a few more missions done, but I experienced enough of it. I just got to the hospital and met a few patients.
Middle-earth : Shadow of War
Hollow Knight : Voidheart Edition
Bugsnax is the PS5 version, so hopefully one day I can enjoy it. Shadow of War just felt like I was fighting constantly, instead of a nice blend of exploring and fighting, but I experience enough of it. Hollow Knight I could probably play a few more hours of, at least beat the final boss. I believe I tried twice and it was late enough to go to bed and just did not go back.
Just Cause 4
Worms Rumble was very enjoyable the night I gave it. Rocket Arena I could play more of.
oh how I wish Boone was a lady, and how I wish Zik was purple. I do like how there were like 20 costumes, but none of them turned Zik purple.
Just Cause 4 was enjoyable enough, but I didn’t take to it. I died during an escort mission and felt like that was enough for me.
. . .
28 titles! Which is four more than I thought we going to get, and one of those is even a PS5 game!
So my Top Ten Games would be :
- Rise of the Tomb Raider
- Fall Guys
- Goat Simulator
- Uncharted 3 (through the Collection)
- Star Wars Battlefront 2
- Sonic Forces
- Sims 4
- Street Fighter V
- NBA 2k20
I went down the list and wrote the ones I really enjoyed and got to 9, and threw in NBA 2k20 so all of the July titles were represented. Uncharted 4 was amazing, and I probably could drop the difficulty down for that title, but it bugs me when I have to do that.
Of the 28, I only really finished Rise of the Tomb Raider, Fall Guys Season One, Street Fighter V, Erica, Uncharted 3, and Goat Simulator. Some of them, you don’t really finish but experienced everything the game had to offer.
