So got a nice gift card from my boss for xmas and have another one coming on Friday for our monthly survey score bonus. Going to pick up a PS4 pro. Trying to figure out what games to start with.

Generally always have one of the following on hand, not a fan of fantasy or RPG  

Golf game TW etc.
Racing game Gran Turismo and F1
Shooter Battlefield etc
Grand Theft Auto

Prob will pick up 3 maybe 4 games to start depending on prices Here is what I am looking at let me know if I am missing something or should look at something else. Single player is as important to me than online. Old school but I love a good single player campaign still.  

F1 2017 This is a definite buy
Gran Turismo Sport (torn on this one, huge GT fan but the reviews are looking less than stellar for this release) Project Cars 2 would be the other option here.
Golf wise, prob lean towards the golf club 2 or should I just stick with EA Sport Rory???
Shooter is where it gets a bit trickier. Was looking at Ghost Recon Wildlands over BF1 and COD initially, will prob end up with all of them.  
Is GTA V single player any different on PS4 than it was on PS3?

When is Red Dead Redemtion 2 coming out? That looks awesome.

Recon Wildlands is just ok. BF1 is great but gets rather old quickly. The guns are kinda lame, the maps are alright, graphics are incredible tho. TBH as a hardcore BF4 fan I've seen a huge resurgence on the servers in that game. Seems like everyone that found out about BF through BF1 wanted to give a more current warfare gaming a try. BF4 was like $20 with all the DLC's on the PS store not too long ago. I highly recommend it. No freemium bs, awesome graphics, and stellar online gameplay. Check out some Far Cry games too those are great single player games. GTA V is no different other than the fact that they keep adding onto the online system. RDR2 should be out next spring. Was supposed to be this Christmas but got delayed. Which I don't mind bc I'd rather see them put out a completed non buggy game.

Nice thanks. Had BF4 on PS3 looked good there imagine would look really good on PS4 pro. Far Cry 5 is definitely on my list. Knew that one is later next year. COD MW4 remastered is also pretty cheap ill prob pick that one up for nostalgia.

Ordered F1 2017, Ghost Recon Wildlands, and The Golf Club 2 from Amazon tonight to start. Will download BF4 and COD4 remastered via PS Store since it looks like they're cheaper on there. Decent starting point and enough to keep me busy for a while.

F1 2017 is pretty darn good. If your leaning towards project cars 2 I would suggest getting a wheel and pedal set, much easier to drive both.

Good to know, unfortunately I am a controller guy. I wish I could get a wheel set up. No where to set it up without making one of those racing seat set ups and no where to store it in our condo. Married so wifey wont let me go full bachelor and leave the chair out full time.

My wife and I have a condo as well. She bought me a wheeled student desk on Amazon, the steering wheel attaches to the desk and the pedals go on the floor. I put the pedals on the desk when I'm done and roll it into the corner. Easy to move downstairs when company is coming over too

I wish I could make it work just cant.  I see where the wheel and pedals would be a big boost. Last F1 game I had was 2014 I could drive with no driving aides using the controller with no issues. F1 2017 is a totally different monster especially with the classic cars. trying to apply gradual throttle coming out of corners even with TCS medium ends up as a spin inducing move. Braking is super sensitive too even after adjust the brake bias to 50%


Overall glad I waited to get a 4k TV to upgrade to the PS4pro instead of just getting a regular sooner. The Golf Club 2 is an interesting game. I love the playability over any of the EA games. Some choppy frame rate issues on some of the courses which for a lower budget game is to be expected, but as a whole. I like the game, love some of the well done user created courses.

PUBG is having trouble getting Sony to allow them the licensing. Apparently Sony is very stringent on the quality of the games they put on the PS Store and PUBG's producers more or less put out a Steam game that was hardly finished and have been winging it as they go. Once they get rid of some of the major bugs within the game, Sony should allow it the licensing.

My understanding is that the version of PUBG out for PC and Xbox is technically considered a beta of the game, so there is no quality requirements of the game, apparently.

I wanted to play PUBG so bad on Xbox, but all the reviews kinda made me think I'll just wait until things get finished.  If you want a PUBG experience, look at Fortnite, plus the whole it's free helps as well.  I'm happy I played Fortnite because I have fun just signing on and playing a couple of games with a few buddies, but I don't think I'd want to just commit tons and tons of time to it, so I probably wouldn't buy PUBG unless all my friends got it.  There is no progression really to your player as you fly into the map with basically nothing and have to find everything, so being a level 1 vs level 100 really doesn't make a difference minus experience.
