Five Reasons To Get a PS4 Over a PC
There are a lot of reasons to get a gaming computer over a PS4. Gaming computers have a broad range of games, many which offer a range of mods and add-ons, and will often make multiplatform games look better due to better graphics. A gaming computer is also an upgrade of the standard computer, which many people will already find essential to own.
But these features can all have their drawbacks: a large selection of games does not mean the games are all great and it may take a while to find a ‘gem’. In 2014, Forbes reported that nearly 37 per cent of all registered Steam games had never been played.
Mods and add-ons made by users aren’t necessary to the base game and can break games (or vice versa). And better graphics does not make superior gameplay. The high cost of game development and large hardware and software configurations on PC can cause games to be released with broken or missing features. Assassin’s Creed Unity, Batman: Arkham Knight and Aliens: Colonial Marines are three well-known cases of broken games on the PC market.
A large drawback of the gaming computer is that new release games often require high-performance hardware, which can be expensive. High-performance processors and graphics cards can individually cost more than the entire PS4 console. Games bought on Steam require internet access to download. After the download time, games can also require software or game updates, leaving PC gamers waiting to play a game their console counterparts can enjoy from the moment they insert the disk.
But the real reason you would be a PS4 over a PC, are these five games:
The Last of Us takes place in an apocalyptic world where zombies have devastated humankind. After she is bitten by a zombie, a young girl discovers she is immune to the zombie virus. The game sees you take the girl across America to a rebel group who intend to use her immunity to cure the world of the virus.
In Until Dawn, the player takes on the role of eight separate characters. The choices the player makes throughout the game cause ‘butterfly effects’, which decide whether the characters will live or die.
Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy is a remaster of the PS1 video game series. The game brings Crash back-to-life, taking him on a platform adventure to tackle his most memorable adventures.
4. Killzone: Shadow Fall
Killzone: Shadow Fall is a first-person shooter and is the sixth game in the Killzone series. The game introduces the player to a futuristic city, plighted with danger and chaos, where rivals seen in the previous games are forced to work together to survive.
5. Uncharted 4
Uncharted 4 is a massive open-world, action-adventure game and is the latest installment of the award-winning Uncharted series. The graphics and atmosphere are immersive and set the tone for engaging gameplay as players explore a range of exotic environments.
