    I have a new PS4 that I'm really enjoying.
    I just finished Wolfenstein the New Order and Wolfenstein the Old Blood. I like how those games were setup and played.

    Any recommendations for others such as that? I'm not really interested in network or coop playing, I just like to play offline if that's the right term.

    I saw the game Destiny, but on the Sony network, I only see Destiny the Taken King, which is the newer iteration. I want to maybe try the older one first.

    The Taken King is the base game+an expansion. It might include ALL the expansions to date but I'm not sure on that. It's an online co-op game though, much like the new Star Wars Battlefront. (Which was going to be my recommendation until you mentioned you're after a single player game :) )

    I'm not sure what to suggest! Wolfenstein has been one of the best FPS games in recent years though so you'll be hard pressed to find a game as good as that.

    That makes sense, since I downloaded the demo, and I started getting all these friend requests and people following me.

    As for starwars, my wife got me the StarWars battlefront edition of the PS4. I've played the single missions, and I'm not overly impressed. I love everything about it, but the single player game play is lacking. One of the issues, I have with the coop play with StarWars is that I need to pay some sort of subscription, which I really don't want. My wife spend a lot of money that included the game and now I have to buy a subscription? I'm getting off on a tangent however.

    I'm kicking around the idea of maybe Fallout 4. Not a direct FPS game, AFAIK,but it seems immersive.

    The subscription fee is less than the price of a game and you do get some pretty good bonuses with it. Once a month you get a few free games (that last for as long as you subscribe) and you can play online with any game.

    Fallout is really popular. I haven't played it yet but I haven't heard a bad word about it on these forums.

    There are lots of incredible single player games that aren't FPS though. Bloodborne, Metal Gear V, GTAV, Witcher 3 are all huge adventure games.

    While I have subscriptions (office, creative suite), I'm not really jazzed up for the game side because I'm mostly not wanting to play online.

    Fallout 4. This is one of the best games I've ever played. It's so good, that I've decided to get myself all other Fallout games, not just those by Bethesda, but I and II, Fallout Tactics, Fallout 3, New Vegas, and whatever DLCs that exist. I simply LOVE this game to pieces. And I'm not even playing on PC but on PS4. If I played it on the PC with all those mods available, I'd probably go insane very fast.

    I don't play online but subscribe because they do give 2-3 games per month free to your collection and often very healthy discounts on other digital games. Essentially in a month you get your subscriptions worth leaving you 11 further months of bonus content and discounts.


    Anyway that aside FPS on PS4. I have



    Borderlands - Handsome Jack Collection - another bargain pack of great games.

    Metro Redux - two for less than price of one and a great pair of moody FPS games

    Somia - really chilling

    Far cry 4 - a slow starter it grew on me. First few hours felt too overwhelming and even now I have so much still to do - but does get bit repetitive. I play it piecemeal to avoid that.

    Call of Duty - Black Op's 3. (Decent single player campaign and fan zombies mode even if you ignore MP)

    Zombie - great

    The Vanishing of Ethan Carter - average

    Everybody's Gone To The Rapture - great

    Sherlock Holmes - Crimes & Punishment (can be played FPS or 3rd Person) - really underrated and one of my favourite games

    Destiny - Taken King Edition (bought on sale at Xmas but haven't really got too far myself)

    Killzone : Shadowfall - best Killzone ever ;)

    Minecraft - bought it but can't get into it myself, but we all know how good its meant to be

    Starwars - Battlefront (Same as Destiny - bought in sale but not really played)

    Fallout 4 - like Sherlock Holmes can be played entirely in FPS and great RPG take on a FPS

    I forgot about killzone, I'll have to check that out, thanks :)

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to getting Fallout 4, though I'm not sure if I'll play it as a FPS, or interact more with it like a RPG

    I think you'd do yourself a great disservice playing it solely as a FPS. There is so much you can do in Fallout 4. You can build up settlements (though this might be more fun with the PC version and mod availability as the standard options you have at your disposal are somewhat limited), you can build relationships with companions, you can join factions, you have different means with how to interact with/influence/persuade/dissuade people and change a story's outcome (to some extent, other versions of Fallout are said to be much more flexible in that regard). You can be a villain or a "good" person, a smart person, a dumb person, socially inept or highly talented.

    You loot, you mod your own weapons, you cook your own food, you (can) create drugs and other chemicals. The possibilities do seem endless and it definitely does not ever get boring.

    What I find most fun in this game is the exploration part. There are over a hundred places to discover, from little cottages, to dungeons, to mere holes, to entire villages. Some of these have great stories to tell, others, well, not so much. But, given the size of the game, I think it's quite well balanced.

    I got a PS4 several months after release and I got this game. It's pretty nice and makes a PS4 worth owning (being more an XBox guy).

    I guess you can get a copy pretty cheap now but I see the price at Gamestop slowing increasing.

    I just picked up Fallout 4, and so far I am not disappointed. I've not delved into much of the came (I just arrived into Concord) and visually its great, the story line is gripping and the action is great.
