I am not going to buy it just to have the remastered version, but if I didn't have a PS3 or a haven't played TLOU yet, I would buy it day one. It is arguably the best game of last generation afterall.

I might pick Alien: Isolation on launch.

PS4 out of consoles, cutting edge PC overall.

Consoles actually make it possible to make a graphically demanding game for PC. PC sales wouldn't justify that. See PC exclusives and their graphical inferiority compared to multiplats for reference.

-Looks at games released as PC exclusives ;

Crysis , Crysis Warhead , Witcher 2 , Half Life 2 , Shogun 2 .

And upcoming games ;

Star Citizen , Dreadnought , Unreal Tournament ,

Hmmm , riiiiight .

You gave us opinions, we gave you PC exclusives at the time that had better gfx than anything on consoles.

Please shut the fuck up. Star Citizen, Elite, and Dreadnaught continue that trend. PC has the best gfx every gen. Deal with it.

Whatever helps you sleep at night.

Come on, you got nothing but Crysis.

Witcher 2 doesn't look that good and I can max it out on my mid-tier laptop, nothing is particularly demanding about it if you dont turn on the broken option that makes it unplayable regardless of HW.

Half-Life 2... really? You tried to name 5 (in words: five) PC exclusives that look good and one of them has to be 10 (in words: ten) years old?

Shogun 2 doesn't look any special.

Star Citizen might well be a vaporware or epic failure, Dreadnought looks worse than already released console games, Unreal Tournament has not been cutting edge in terms of graphics since 1999.

And then, there is Crysis. That is the one game that was designed specifically to use cutting edge PCs to their limit (and it indeed was a spectacle). It was released 7 years ago, but because noone released anything that would use the potential of cutting edge PCs ever since, desperate graphic addicts still mention it even in 2014.

We are on year 9 of development (started shortly after Shadow of the Colossus finished).

If it takes a decade for this game to come out, it better be the best thing ever.

Exactly.

I'm really glad they confirmed it, now we only need to see some gameplay at E3.

I'm sceptical about it, games that go through development hell rarely turn out well. Everything is possible though :)

There are several great years, but the single best one I can think of is 1999, because these games were released that year:

Planescape: Torment - the best RPG of all time.

Quake 3 Arena - the best arena shooter of all time

Unreal Tournament - the second best arena shooter of all time

Counter-Strike - the best tactical MP shooter of all time

System Shock 2 - probably the best PC game of all time

Dungeon Keeper 2 - the last and in my opinion the best Bullfrog game of all time

Heroes of Might and Magic 3 - the game I was the most addicted to of all time

Honorable mentions: Sid Meyer's Alpha Centauri, The Longest Journey, Shadowman, Homeworld, Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun, Age of Empires II, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, Rayman 2: The Great Escape

Now that I'm reading it... oh my God! Was there really so much greatness in a single year? What went wrong with gaming since then?

Planetside 2 is high rated because it is free to play. If you had to pay 50 USD to buy the game in order to play it, it would be a wasteland with 4/10 rating on metacritic. Face it.

I have no idea what POE is supposed to mean.

Planetside 1 was a full-priced game with a monthly sub, and it did quite well. Hell I remember logging on during primetime and all the continents were population-locked. And PS1 was nowhere near as polished as PS2 is.

Fail harder.

Yeah, it did so well that they decided to go F2P with Planetside 2... oh boy...
