Last week I asked what in particular you found to be deficient about Sony’s PlayStation Plus offerings on the PS4. What resulted was an unprecedented five-way tie. Equally voted for were the fact that the games provided are all indie games; that they are all in niche genres; they already exist on other platforms, particularly the PC; the quality of the games is questionable; and, finally, there aren’t enough releases.
These are all very understandable complaints. If you don’t like horror, for example, Outlast is meaningless to you, and thus you have to wait until the next month. If you already have those games, then you’re just twiddling your thumbs. Each of the choices I gave were of a personal taste or experience nature for the simple fact that there isn’t a single overriding answer to this question. A person who has never played the games and who loves a wide range of genres will have a very different response to the service than someone who has the opposite experience. I do find it interesting that none of the categories pulled ahead of any of the others, meaning the complaints, at least from my meagre readership, are not focused on any area in particular.
This week for Gamemoir, I looked at five sequels that I considered to have “ruined” great games. Had I played Burial at Sea prior to writing the list, I would have added it in there somewhere.
Next week’s poll will asks about season passes.
Until next time
