Poll: State of Play - what was your favorite? (42 votes)

FF7 remake 55%
MediEvil remake 7%
Monster Hunter World DLC 7%
Predator 10%
Away 21%

Overall this showing was way better than the pathetically bad first one. Hopefully the momentum keeps going from here.

Away was the most interesting for me. I really am starting to like these original takes on the survival genre (like with Ancestors).

Predator could be ok... I guess. But I would've much preferred a singleplayer game. This just looks like Evolve with even less content. Perhaps a budget title?

Monster Hunter DLC looks like more Monster Hunter, but with snow. That's alright I guess

MediEvil looks horrible and not something I want to play

FF7 looks really vague

It's amazing how everyone was crying for sony to do something other than their standard blockbuster AAA cinematic games and Sony delivered just that with state of play.

I wonder what the narrative will be switched to now?

Fanboys are running low on the same ol stale and over used arguments.

@R4gn4r0k: other than the obvious frame rate issues needing to be fixed, what’s wrong with MediEvil? And it’s only going to be $29.99 at launch. Steal.

Very excited for the Predator game. I was a huge fan of the AvP game last generation, despite its flaws, and while I know this is different from that, I'm in eager anticipation for some of that similar charm.

MediEvil looks awesome. I played the original back in the day on my brother's PS1. Never finished it, but it's an awesome game. Very nostalgic.

I feel like I should have voted FF7, but the more I think about it, the less I'm in agreement with the battle system. Also, Cloud is too pretty.

I don't like how the screen shakes when the main character moves around. I also see that the combat is very loose and just doesn't seem as interesting as how ARPGs or Character Action Games do it.

I get that this is a remake of a PS1 game, but I ver much enjoy the platformers of that time. This games just doesn't look like it's for me, eventhough I've always wanted to try MediEvil. Ever since playing it on PSP I always wanted to know more about the PS1 games.

Medieval for me loved the series on ps1. Look forward to seeing what happens with the remake. FF remake has been in development so long I feel it's lost a bit of hype.

Final Fantasy VII Remake followed by Monster Hunter World: Iceborne dlc. Those were the only things that interested me, I didn’t care for the rest of what was shown.

I honestly don’t get the hype for medievil, played the game on ps1 and remember it as okay and nothing more. Was it even that well received when it calms out??

@boxrekt: Quit crying...

As for the State of Play. Final Fantasy was the most exciting thing for me. Medieval looked like shit.

Final Fantasy 7 looks amazing. I'm just worried that the battle system will be as easy and dumbed down as Final Fantasy 13, where you could complete 90% of all battles by simply pressing the A button.

after rewatching the isometric hack and slash pixel looking game looks interesting. Away got my attention as well a big improvement over the first state of play.

FF7.

Interested in MHW:Iceborne too but since I have been following it very closely I am not as hyped for it compared to FF7. Do hope they have a new hunter rank, some of my regular MHW friends already at HR999 and I am planning to go back soon and hopefully reach before iceborne.

The highlight was a multi-plat, the rest was mediocre.

I mean it's that simple.

FF7 unequivocally...

I can expand slightly its just the best FF really to me... I feel like it never really even got enough credit in it's day...

I don't even really have the same attraction to FF as many... but FF7 does something I think.

  • FF VII Remake
  • MH: World Iceborne Expansion
  • Away
  • Predator
  • Medievil

Sony is impressing me. I just played my PS4 for the first time in ages yesterday, and I have missed some really great games it would appear. Looking forward to getting God of War, Spider-Man, and The Last Guardian. Plus I still need to play Uncharted 4. I'm so behind so it is a good time to devote some time to PlayStation.

I loved Medievil and will pick it up. But man FF7 is just soo nostalgic for me. The soundtrack, characters and story were just magical at the time growing up. So yeah it has be the FF remake. I'm interested in almost everything they showed mind.
