Hey, so I know this is the year of Zelda: Totk, Armored Core 6, Baldur's Gate 3 and Starfield, but goddamn this is going to be a great fucking game! Look at the graphics, look at the fluid motions, the game mechanics!

I would recommend Duckstation emulator on pc. It can take about 10-15 minutes to set it up but youtube has plenty of tutorials on it. I've been replaying bunch of ps1 games that way recently and I'm honestly impressed by it, for many games it can even add proper widescreen mode and higher framerate that doesn't feel weird or sped-up. Playing Gran Turismo 2 in 60fps widescreen for an instance looks and feels fantastic since it would lag like crazy on real console back in the day.
Finally got some mood to fire it up, try some a few minutes, even just looking at the covers is just feel nostalgic.
Configuring the rendering upgrade already appears to be an HD or remastering version.

The most important bit is the PGXP option, make sure to switch it on. It fixes the naturally wobbly graphics of PS1 console, and especially in motion the results are incredible.
Anyway, your screenshot has some of my all time favorite games. I particularly love the old MOH games and the first three Resident Evil games. I've replayed those so many times over the years.

Ever since 2015 when Bloodborne and Witcher 3 came out, we've been spoiled with amazing games. It's like the gaming industry really took the right steps forward with the PS4 generation and haven't stopped.

Just look this line up of different studios/big names

Divinity: Original Sin 2 -> Baldur's Gate 3
Zelda:Botw -> Zelda: Totk
Witcher 3 -> Cyberpunk 2077
Bloodborne -> Dark Souls 3 -> Sekiro -> Elden Ring
Resident Evil 7 -> Re2 -> Re3 -> Resident Evil 8 -> Re4
Hitman 2 & 3
Metal Gear Solid V -> Death Stranding
Days Gone
Uncharted 4 -> Last of Us Part 2
Red Dead Redemption 2 -> soon to be GTAVI

And these are just the AAA games. This is madness, my backlog is huge, I still haven't finished Returnal, Zelda:TOTK and Guardians of the Galaxy :lol:

I wanna start BG3 already haha

I'm playing Armored Core 6, after two hard bosses in chapter 1 it gets easier and you get more weapons and other equipment. I love it more than I thought I would.

And after that, Baldur's Gate 3 already preloaded on PS5. I'm not going out this year anymore.

Speaking of, I just started Cyberpunk. Fascinating game but not yet convinced fully.

Finished Armored Core 6 after 26 hours. Now I have to play New Game+ and New Game++ to see the other two endings. I loved it! It's fast-paced madness, the missions are short, the checkpoints give your health back when you retry from a checkpoint, the customization is great. This is an old school type of game, you just jump in and go crazy.


This is a good video if you don't know how the gameplay looks.

if you just put ''>'' instead of ''->'' id agree with pretty much everything, other than perhaps RE stuff and Elden ring would go infront of DS3.

Baldur's Gate 3 mini review after 10 hours. Seems like the best CRPG of all time already. This is levels above Original Sin 2

At this point anybody who is rather playing Starfield is just lying to himself

Lords of the Fallen is the first PS5 game that I bought with pre-order and disappointed me from the first day I played it. Maybe no company should make souls type games except FromSoftware. I'll still keep playing. I hope I'm wrong about my initial disappointment.

Finished Lies of P, as a huge fan of Bloodborne loved almost every second of it. Looking forward to the new cod from the beta and currently playing one of the Yakuza games available on gamepass.

I'm totally immersed in BG3, it's clearly one of the best games ever made, no cap.

Just came into chapter 3 after 60 hours.

Were you playing a good, neutral or evil character?

I'm playing as Gale and I almost ended my playthrough at the end of act 2 because you get a special choice if he is there :lol: pretty much playing as a good character except that i didn't let the pixie out of the moonstaff, because I was scared I wouldn't be able to move around without that

Good. Second playthrough will be evil.
