Well, Erica is basically an interactive movie. Who the hell needs gameplay with such top graphics lol

Erica got an 8 on GS

When PC Gamers and Xbox will start getting such top exclusives like this?

Can't wait to get it free for PS Plus next year. But it really does look like worth a buy. Maybe I'll just support the Devs, Actors, Actresses by buying it on sale.

This game is $10 and it will probably be free with PS Plus sometime next year so I can't blame anyone for choosing to wait. However, I was curious enough to give it a go and can honestly say that I enjoyed it. Something a little different and it's a pretty successful experiment imho. I think the price point is what sealed the deal for me. Expectations weren't that high and thus I was pleasantly surprised. Only complaint is that I hated the controls. The dualshock is awful, and at first, my phone (LG G7) kept losing its connection to my PS4. Frustrating to say the least.

I saw that girl, think it was on stage at Gamescom, and she looked like some 16 year old girl, seemed creepy to control some dumb girl for a day, figured if not that weird considering what else PSVR has.

I went and looked her up cause they were talking about her acting chops thinking she was gonna be some random kid in a horror movie I love, and she's nearly 30, and hasn't acted in a single movie I've seen.

I'm gonna watch the Beowulf show, cause only thing major she's in that looks remotely appealing, and if I like her, I'll play that game, cause you know, its literally a movie, and why would I want to control an actor I don't like.

Just when you think Gamespot and its "reviewers" can't sink any lower they out do themselves.

People on this forum have accused games like Horizon Zero and Uncharted of being movie games, which they are not. But Erica? Man, there is a movie game if ever I saw one. I wouldn't pay 5 dollars for this "game". I'll "play" it on youtube instead.

HZD no, but people have said it about Uncharted, but its the gameplay in that game that is uncharted lol.

Didn't see this thread but anyways.

Erica is an interesting thriller but at the same time, gamers here need to remember one thing and understand this. People like "story driven" games. Heavy rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and Detroit: Become Human also exist and all sell well. This is the future of Sony. If you want gameplay in your games, you're gonna have to go with PC, Xbox consoles or Nintendo consoles. Keep in mind Erica wasn't made by Sony in the matter of speaking.

Black Mirror already did this it was called Bandersnatch it was kinda a fun experiment on Netflix but I'm not feeling this. I got a PS4 and I like movie games like Until Dawn but I don't want a FMV game. I remember renting one in the 90's called Psychic Detective the acting was so bad lol this is to much movie for me.

Hmmm, not sure why but I'll have a look and see why.

Edit: Okay, this is what you said:

This is embarrassing even for Gamespot's low reviewing standards.

You know its bad when they are bested at reviewing games by YouTube hacks lol.

Let's sum it up. Your comment belongs in SW, not in the comments and mostly, you how is this GS reviewing low standards? This is a game, despite it's a cinematic driven game, it's still a game and the reviewer is still an opinion, nothing more/less. I don't like it but I can understand why they deleted that comment.

@i_p_daily: It was probably deleted because it was trolling nonsense like most of your post.

Well, Gears 5 is almost as good as a $10 interactive movie on PS4. You should be proud of that.
