Nathan Drake has been my favorite character for the past two generations. So, I’ll politely disagree.

@Yams1980: looks like you didn’t read the article at all. They were “rushed” because they floundered for 4.5 years with not much to show. All of the developers did care, they just weren’t given a chance or directed in a any fashion. EA didn’t give a hard deadline until it was shown BioWare was in no way going to get anything done without a little pressure. Teams work together all the time, this is software development, it’s rare for one team to do everything on big AAA games (not AAA in quality but in hype, expectation, marketing).
If you had read the article it points the blame primarily at BioWare and it’s crazy development mentality and garbage management.
@jackamomo: you didn’t watch the stream or read the specs. It’s not a local box or GPU. Nothing is rendered locally, nothing is done locally besides control input.
The platform is the server farms. Everything is done on the data center side and then streamed to whatever device you are using.
The difference in games is still up in the air but getting Doom Eternal right off the bat is a good start.
I’m personally skeptical on latency issues, price, and whether Google will stick with it long term.
It’s a solid game. It’s also launched in the perfect storm with Anthem being hated by practically all media outlets.
-tons of loot
-fleshed out end game
-QoL improvements over first add up
-the world is incredibly detailed
The only negative is a lackluster story and I’ll be nit picky about absolutely trash guns that are useless.
It really doesn’t affect me. The PS4 games given have been pretty solid over the last 2 years though so I’m happy.
Top: Majora’s Mask
Top: Final Fantasy IX
Now the choice is actually pretty hard for me. I have a lot to choose from but I’ll have to go with....
Really tough last choice, could have been quite a few others...
God of War
Breath of Fire
Games suffer when the hardware is split like this, I hope it’s not the case.
